Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts


Hey Sarah... I feel like where dating the same guy!! Haha my fiance also wants those cups crazy bad and wants to wear a white linen suit (which im hoping wont look cheap.. i feel like the all white can go either way). We have just under 100 people booked and were doing a "welcome cocktail hour" at the lobby bar. Were just going to tell people to meet there at like 8pm the night before the wedding. This way we can have a welcome dinner/party without the added expense. A few past brides have done this and it seemed to work out great for them. Just a thought I wanted to share.

It is starting to freak me out!

Oh man so I heard the word shopping on here! - I am addicted! I have bought so much stuff.  I found a cute eyelet bathing suite from VS that I am wearing the morning of my wedding with a big flower in my hair!  And I have been shopping like every weekend for clothes! so bad!

 

 

Okay also I wanted to let you know you have another options for OOT bags.  I talked to Gina and she gave me concierge information which I then contacted.  When I get down there I am going to purchase $15-$20 gift certificates to be used in the gift shop.  Then have a note with the gift card delievered to the rooms. (http://pinterest.com/pin/276760339570317584/) That way if someone forgot something and or wanted to purchase a gift to take with them they can do that.  I have 30 rooms to pack for after I totaled everything up and just seems like so much to lug down there.  

 

Just a thought for some of you, since that option is available.  They said they would just charge your credit card for the full amount and divide up the cards/certificates.

   Hi ladies I'm new on here. I'm getting married on June 11th this year. So excited but this resort is not very helpful at all. We picked our wedding date because we wanted to be married around sunset and have our reception on the pool deck below the infinity pool. Last week i got a email saying that the deck is already booked so we will have to do the beach. I would switch our wedding date but our guests have been booking since November and not worth the hassle of moving things around. What would you guys do if you were in my position? I feel like the resort should in some way compensate us for the misunderstanding?

   Anyways another thing that I'm not sure on is how the beach ceremony works? I was thinking about doing live music like steel drummer but that's not on the list for live music options. What is everyone else doing?

Kmarch85,

 

Thanks so much for that feedback! Reminds me of the flan some hispanic friends gave us one year for Christmas...so nice of them, but so did not care for it! Choked it down in front of them and the rest went in the trash. :0( Definitely will try before I choose. 

 

:0) Melissa

    • 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
