Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

So I didn't know you couldn't use reguler rose petals there because I saw on their a la carte decorations list" a bag of rose" as one of the extras you could purchase so I assumedit was acceptable and you could just get those for the aisle. Ill have to ask that. Also, Dovi- you have to contact the photographer on your own. I had to ask Yamina the same thing and she gave me their email. Is anyone else worried about the possibilty of the bottles of goodies your bringing down for the OOT bags exploading or leaking from the flight ?? For example like travel size sunscreens/ aloe/lotion...I have them all in a goodies bag and I would hate for something to leak and ruin everything else in the Clear bags.

Dovi - yeah I had found Anels email address on a thread here a while back and thats how I found out about contacting a photographer - she is costing 1499 for full day and trash the dress another day.

Depending on how many lanterns you want I can bring them down for you or ship them to you and u can bring them down - I can offer them at $4-7 per lantern for you.  

I am on that wooden pool deck by the infinity pool and sand.

66 MORE DAYS!!!!!!!

 

  

 

 

Just did a count of my guests and we are over 60 people so far.  Crazy so I am not doing OOT bags, we did nicer favors for the guests instead.  www.wholesalepashminascarves.com for the ladies and nice but funny mustache luggage tags for the guys.  It was just getting out of hand with how many things to bring down.

 

If I decide to make a little care bundle

lip balm, sunscreen, and other little things

 

where are you brides purchasing from?  are you finding a place that offers bulk?

 

Just gets SOOOOOOOOOOOOO pricey with these oot bags

Hi all!! I am recently engaged and am highly considering the Dreams Riviera Cancun as our wedding location. 

I have a couple of questions I wanted to see if any of you could help me with!

We have a travel agent and she is having a hard time getting in touch with the wedding coordinators there so I thought I would direct my questions here and hopefully get a faster response! :)

 

I really want to have a private reception on one of the decks. 

Does the per person amount for the buffet and open bar include everything? Tables, chairs, basic linens, etc? 

I know any thing special (colored linens, flowers, decorations) won't be included, but just want to make sure there isn't other hidden fees in there for renting the actual space. 

 

Thanks in advance for any help y'all can give me!!

Hello all!  I officially booked my wedding at DRC and wanted to ask a couple questions. 

 

I am planning a group of around 40... I wanted to opt out of a sit down dinner and just have a few hours of cocktails, appetizers, and music.  I was going to get the Ultimate package and see if I could trade in the dinner for a longer cocktail hour.  Has any bride done this?

 

Also, how can you get images of the flowers they offer.  I am having a hard time picking colors for invitations etc. without seeing any options!!

 

Any information would be very helpful!!  I feel very lost in this whole experience.

 

Thanks!!

Email at Kmarchewka85@gmail.com and I can forward you all the options.

 

Have you thought about a buffet style dinner? They offer it at 40+ guests... gives more options.

There is an extra cost of $2,500 for this set-up.

The WC offered this option to me after letting me know the pool deck that I originally requested was already reserved. Mind you she responded to my request for the pool deck 2 months later.... -__-

    • 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?
