Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Hey Rach...Gerente I believe is her name. She is very helpful. She is negotiating with me and I'm very happy that I can use this DJ because he's affordable..  She's very good, she said she is my WC now....so they must have fired Ana

If you dont mind me asking, what kind of cake are you getting and how much are they charging you? If you dont mind?

The lady from DolceCakes.com, her name is Zaida and she is charging me $5-$9 pp + delivery fee so the cake total is about $250.  She said to keep cost down, if I wanted more tiers, they could substitute the extra tiers with foam at no charge and since they would be cutting the cake and boxing/distributing for the guest, no one would get a foam piece HAHAHA!  I was worried about that. Have you gone to the site yet?  She is very nice.  Here are my other 2-3 choices:  Keep in mind the colors will be royal blue, purple and silver instead of the cake in the pic and to top it off...when you cut into the cake, she said she can make it blue and purple swirls!  awesome!!!!:

Hello Everyone.... As I am sure many of you have been eagerly waiting for my DRC review and finally I am done and have uploaded to the website here. One thing I would like to pass along to future brides who write reviews - to serve this community best I would recommend writing your reviews on DRC in the Vendor review section because it's quite painful to scan through all of these pages to read reviews... and with no further delay here are links to my 2 reviews

That was sooooo beautiful and your wife is stunning, she has the most incredible eyes...Like a Disney Princess.  Thank you for the OOT bag suggestions and the suggestions on how to get stuff down there.

Your So Welcome! Thanks for the compliments I will pass that along to my wifey...Hit me up with any other questions you or any else has and I will do my best to respond...

 

One thing I want to add to all of this is have fun! - your wedding day will come and go so fast! so live it up! try your best to enjoy the process and soak it up on wedding day. There is definitely a void of "what do I do now" after the wedding is over. I wish I could do the wedding over in slow motion :)

 

Cheers to all of you future brides!

Rick,

 Your review is amazing... thank you so much for posting it.  I love all the pictures and tips! I did have a few quick questions, if you dont mind:

 

1) Who designed your wedding logo from?

2) What was the pricing like for La Luna? Those pictures were absolutely amazing and you and your wife look stunning!

 

Thanks again!

Thanks Rick! Gorgeous wedding and your review and pictures were extremely helpful! Especially about how to take the OOT stuff down....that gives me anxiety thinking about it and how soon I'm going to have to figure it out! LOL I was wondering about what you had to pay for La Luna as well, if you didnt mind answering. Also, you just borrowed all the stuff (colored sand and vases) from the resort? THey had your color sand there?

 

Thanks!

Great Job!

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
