Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I was in the same boat of not knowing if I wanted to dresses. I was thinking maybe after dinner going and changing out of the big wedding dress and into a more comfortable dress for dancing. I just would have to find my first dress for a good price then I wouldn't feel guilty about buying a second one.

I've found 2, trying to decide on one and also, is anyone doing  a reception dress?  I've been toying with the idea but that means going back inside and changing and i wonder how that would work....is it even worth it?

Sky lanterns are the paper lanterns that you release into the air (like a hot air balloon). They were in tangled and the hangover 2. They are pretty common in asian cultures during celebrations and are considered good luck, they are symbolic of problems and worries floating away.  I think they'd make beautiful pictures too.... but they can be dangerous if its too windy!

hahah you're too funny. I told you that when you first joined the forum. Why do you think I was mentioning possibly splitting linen costs etc if we decided on similar color schemes :) 

 

Not sure about the guest count yet. We have 2 more weddings in the family so are waiting to see how they tackle their lists before we finalize our budget and based on that, our invite list. I'll have a better idea in November when the 1st wedding is taking place and the other couple is sending out their invitations. Based on research online and destination wedding planners I've talked to, it seems that destination guests expectancy % is anything from 20%-40% of invited list so regardless of how many people either of us invites, the resort should more than easily be able to accommodate all of our guests. The only tricky thing is if there are any other weddings that weekend but considering we've been planning ours for a little longer, I'm hoping it'll give us a leg up. Do you know if there are any other weddings booked for our weekend yet?

That would be gorgeous! And, almost eliminate any decor costs I would think...hmmmm! I'll check to see if they would deviate from their normal routine but if you hear anything sooner, let me know. :)

Has anyone thought about having their ceremony in an obscure location, like the lobby, right where the picture of the stairs are :

Here's a pic of our save the date magnet that I designed and got printed at Vista Print and fyi they have very reasonable pricing. The turquoise is showing more yellow than it is really supposed to be but you get the idea. We also did our own engagement shots too :)

Crazily enough I found my dress within a month of our engagement on a casual shopping trip - but you know when it's THE one and it that was mine :) The boutique recommended getting the major alterations done immediately after that so I went with it. I'm supposed to go back 1.5 month before the wedding for any minor changes they may need to do right before. But they "highly recommended" not gaining or losing more than 10 lbs ;-) Ask them how long their alteration process takes and make your decision based on that.

We've decided on our ceremony being at the gazebo...has anyone looked into decoration ideas for that area specifically? I'm focusing on non-floral ideas as much as possible! Thanks!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
