Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Lindsey,

 

I love your flowers.  I got real touch also and loved them, plus all my bridesmaids and I have them displayed in our houses still!  My friend is getting married at DRC and I am helping her plan.

 

Did anyone do an IPod instead of the DJ's offered?  I did that at my wedding and it was awesome, total control of the songs and all our guests were dancing like crazy.  We got tons of compliments on the music too.  But our resort gave us the sound system and a mic to use at no cost.

Rachel,

 

Your photos are beautiful!  I'm trying to figure out the timing of everything in relation to sunset.  Did Anel take most of your pics before or after the ceremony?  How long would you say that part took?

 

Thanks for sharing and congrats!

Lara

Hello!

 

Is anybody just going to bring their own music instead of paying for the DJ?  Or have any past brides done this?  Any suggestions and/or comments on this idea?

 

Thanks!!

Also..we are thinking of doing a three hour reception but having music and dancing for four hours.  We don't really want to pay the extra hour for the Bar..seems a bit pricey when we are at an All-Inclusive.  We figure we could slip one of the staff some cash to keep bringing us drinks..or send one of our guests to another bar to get more drinks..any thoughts???

Ok it's been awhile but i have been super busy. My future mother-in-law went down for a site visit and said I picked a great hotel and raved about how beautiful it was. The only word of advice she had was if you are going to get married on the beach be careful because the Bride who got married while she was down there had to throw her dress away becasue her dress was full of ants. I guess from standing in the sand all day and the train dragging in the sand collected alot of ants. I guess the reception and ceremony was in the sand so that may have been a factor too. All in all I am now super excited after seeing the photos and getting the positive feedback. Happy planning everyone!!!

I'm torn about makeup!!  embarrest.gif  Do my own or have them do it???!?!?!?!  Anybody have any thoughts?  I've never liked my makeup when I've had it done but I've read a lot about Bridal makeup and it seems a little tricky..??  Has any past brides had their makeup done?  I feel I could let them do it all except for mascara...I could do that myself..??

I am having Adrian Guerra from Styling Riviera Maya come in and do my hair and makeup. I've heard nothing but good things about him and he uses an airbrush machine for makeup so it lasts all night especially in the heat and humidity. It's a little more money but it is worth it for me. If anyone is wants his contact information let me know. He is also really quick at responding to emails.

Please email that to me!  Does the airbrush make up rub off on the dress?  I don't want my dress stained in the pictures...courud7346@yahoo.com

Ok Ladies...

 

The struggle continues, but I'm getting good outcomes. I guess Ana isn't my WC anymore as someone with a "G" name is talking to me. I insisted on the DJ and was told that if they stay at the hotel, it shouldn't be a problem, to which I responded, if I don't get the DJ, I'm moving my wedding... TO WHICH THEY RESPONDED....Ok Miss Courtney, you may use your DJ.......And I have a cake vendor from Dolce Cakes and they wanted them to bake in their over....the baker didn't like that and called themselves as she claimed she just did a sweets bar and a cake for a wedding there 3 months ago....Their response...I can have my cake vendor too!  AWESOME!!!  All that arguing and negotiating paid off in the end!   So I guess you just gotta argue to get what you want from these folks
