Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Yes, please definitely keep us posted. If they are not going to allow outside vendors, they need to adjust their prices. $300 an hour is ridiculous. Good luck!!!

I'm so sorry for the vendor thing. I was told that it was ok....have it in an email and wanted to share that news. I have just sent Ana an email in a pit bull tone no less, stating that I will pull this from them,  I have 60 people booked and I have no problem going to another resort. It would save money for us if we could use a couple of the vendors that we found, money we could spend at their resort on the wedding other wise...its just a cake and a DJ, what could be the harm in that....I'm waiting for her response. I would hate to turn bridezilla 8 months out but I don't like the info that is coming back....and fear that when i get down there, it will be a different story. I've already paid for the DJ and he has been to the other Dreams resort...so what is the big deal.....Detail will be coming soon!

Hi Rachallen,

Did Gina say if they could adjust or give you a break on DJ prices if they're not allowing for outside vendors? Thanks.

Thanks so much for your concern.  However, we heard back from our WC Gina and unfortunately she said we are only allowed to use the resort options which are DJ Mauricio Neri or Edgar Carsoso.  Has anyone EVER worked with any of these two DJs and can give us any feedback?  It would be GREATLY apprecitated!!!  Thanks.

Hi Lindsay in love...

 

Your Slide Show was amazing!!

 

Can you tell me how you did your reception?  We are having a hard time figuring out what to do!?  How many hours did you do?  If you did more than three did you pay for the extra bar?  We were thinking of extending the music but not paying for the bar..thinking somebody could go up to one of the bars at the resort and get a bunch of drinks!? 

 

It looks like in your slideshow you had your Wedding Party introduced but right at their seat?!  Is that right?    

 

What did you do for the DJ option?  We are thinking of just doing the Technician to save money..any thoughts?!

 

Thanks SO much...your help is appreciated!!

 

Sarah

I had her for the complete coverage as well and she was worth more then every penny we paid.

 

Here is our slideshow and her impressive work.

Hi ladies;

 

Today marks 1 month before our wedding date at DRC. In 26 days we will be flying down to Mexico.  I am getting very nervous because I have not heard from Ana lately.  I emailed her a few days ago and received a reply yesterday from the Wedding manager.  The email wasn't signed so I'm not sure who it is.  So I am wondering if Ana is no longer with Dreams.  That makes me nervous.  The manager requested all the information we had previously discussed so they can provide with some figures.  Oh boy, can't wait for the reply.

Hello Sarah-Jane:

 

Our main concern is finding out if the 2012 pricing is available.  As we hear from our wedding coordinator, they dont know the 2012 pricing yet.  However, we would like to get an estimate way in advance so that we dont come across any surprises as the day approaches.  Can you ask Yamina when will the 2012 pricing be available. 

 

Thanks in advance!

That's funny my wedding coordinator is Ana as well and I have not heard from her as well as e-mails that I have been getting are from the wedding manager. I hope she has not left! eeek! Although I did get confirmation from the wedding manager that sky lanterns are allowed as long as they are biodegradable. Yay!! We plan on doing this at the end of our reception as a surprise for our guests. Each of them will make a wish and set them off in the sky! Sooo excited! Has anyone worked or is working with Planner 1 events?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
