Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

got a more detailed email from Ana today (the new WC) confirming all my details. Think things at DRC are coming along nicely now that she is at the actual resort. She is supposed to send me more photos of the resort wedding/reception locations soon. Will post as soon as I get them.

I don't have the spa prices but I have heard that you can get the info if you email Pedro Castillo at Spa@dreamsrivieracancun.com.mx.

Are you planning on getting married at Dreams RC? If so, I believe the wedding packages come with a free bride and groom massage.

Is anyone doing the symbolic ceremony instead of the legal ceremony? I think we have decided to, just to avoid any complications and extra fees. We are thinking of doing the legal thing AFTER the actual ceremony in Mexico. We want the first time that we say vows to be on the beach in front of family and friends. We don't want to make a big deal of the legal ceremony at all....just to make it seem as though the beach ceremony is the "real" thing. Do you happen to know if the resort requires a marriage certificate in order to have a symbolic ceremony. I have heard that some resorts require this and therefore we would have to do the legal ceremony before going to Mexico. Just wondering if anyone has looked into this yet.

Dreams Riviera Cancun is at the top of the list for resorts that are not Adults Only. In terms of the prices I was enquiring in terms of guests.

 

I don't think you need a marriage certificate in order to have a symbolic wedding.

We are planning on getting married in October next year. There will be people coming from Slovakia (Bride side), New Zealand (Groom) and other countries such as the UK. The first our our parents will meet face to face will be in Mexico. Fantastic!

Hey ladies -

I'm looking to get married in September 2010 either at Azul Sensatori or Dreams Riviera Cancun. I have a few questions maybe you can help with!

 

1. Have any of you talked to Ana about doing additional private parties and what options we have? For example, we want to do a welcome reception and a rehearsal dinner and possibly an after party after the reception. I got the pricing for the private reception but no menu options...Did any of you get that information?

 

2. Did anyone have pictures sent to them of the reception / ceremony locations?

 

Thanks!

From what I gather about private events, if you chose to do either of the Dreams of Love or Dreams Ultimate packages you may be able to forgo the One hour Silver Cocktail Party with hors dâ€oeuvres (for up to 20 guests) and do a welcome cocktail party instead, but they may still charge if you want a private event. As for the after party after the reception, we will be doing this as well. What I have read from other resorts is that the party continues in the disco at the resort as long as there is one and it is open. Not too sure about the disco and the hours for Dreams RC.

Locations for the wedding and reception have not been sent out yet. I am waiting for pictures from Ana. She sent an email to me the other day and mentioned that she will send them out as soon as they are available. Once I get them I will try to post on here for everyone. I am sure if anyone else get's photos they will post as well. Until then it is a waiting game for certain info on this resort.
Hope this helps a little?

That's a great idea about having the Cocktail hour before the ceremony. The guests can easily go to one of the bars and have a drink or two after the ceremony while photo's are being taken then go to the reception for dinner. It would also depend on where the bars are located in relation to the reception venue.

Well, depending on the wedding package you chose the one-hour cocktail hour is included already. What some other brides have done (at one of the other Dreams Resorts in Mexico) is NOT have the one-hour cocktail party and instead arrange for a cocktail hour on another night. So for welcome drinks instead or something.

 

There are three wedding packages.

These prices are for 2010 and are directly from the website...

 

DREAMS WEDDING IN PARADISE PACKAGE:

 

Selling Price $799 USD

 

This package is complimentary when booking a Preferred Club Premium Room Ocean Front category or higher for a minimum of 7 nights or if 5 rooms are reserved for a minimum of 3 nights in any room category, this package also applies for renewal of vows ceremony.

 

This complimentary package includes:

 

Service of justice of peace or minister

A $100.00 deposit is required to hold and confirm the wedding date. This deposit will be applied to the total cost of the package. If the couple receives this package complimentary, the deposit will be applied towards any upgrades that the couple adds on. If the couple does not purchase any additional amenities for the wedding itself, this credit may be applied to charges upon check out (phone charges, spa treatments, logo shop purchases, etc.). If for any reason this credit is not used in full, the remaining balance will be refunded at check-out.

You can of course opt to not have a package. This is the document that I received from Claudia at the Dreams Cancun Resort but the options I would think would be the same for Dreams RC. Keep in mind that these are the prices for 2008-2009.

 

Also attached is a document that I received from the Dreams Tulum location with the flower choice options and a few other things.

 

Hope this helps some of you with your choices...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
