Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

oh man, I was rying to keep our under that but it definately didn't work, and I feel like we aren't even do many add-ons....how did you manage to save so much money on everything? I'm coming from the West Coast, so my flights were probably more than flights from NJ....

Cam anyone tell me if they will allow you use the room credit to pay for extra guest over 20 people? I read this somewhere in this form and cant find it?

Well when I say $10,000, I didn't count our fights or stays...just the wedding.  From NJ our flights were $668.  I wanted to fly direct so we didn't risk losing anything.  I thought that was high!

What is everyone doing about OOT Bags? 

I have 55 guest booked- a few more than expected and Im debating if OOT bags are realistic?

I plan to do nice favors at the wedding. 

Thoughts or ideas would be appreciated

Hi. No your not being nosy :)

 

My guests are staying at the Crown Paradise Club Cancun.

 

I didnt want my guests to stay at DRC, me and my future husband are staying at DRC for 14 nights so its going to be our honeymoon as well.

 

We chose DRC because alot of hotels require at least 80% of the your wedding guests to stay at the hotel but Dreams hotels allow guests to come from different resorts; they just have to purchase a wedding day pass.

Hey guys, Eva just introduced me to my wedding coordinator, Yamina.  I've seen her name mentioned here before.  I don't know how many coordinators they have on staff.  Eva also sent me this long questionaire.  Do I need to fill this out right now?  I really donâ€t want to have to pick out my wedding flowers when itâ€s a year before my wedding, unless I really have to.  I rather just pick out my ceremony, cocktail and reception locations now and have the other stuff wait until I am really sure of what I want.

 

Random questions (You guys are the best, and your answers are always honest)

Has anyone used Juan Navarro as their photographer instead of Adventure photos.  Do the photography prices jump a little if you do?

 

With the plated dinner, was there any issues with having a large party (40-50) ppl?  Yamina recommends a buffet, but im not sure if I want to do that.

 

Sorry for the questions.  I'm freaking out a bit.

 

Thanks everyone!  Happy hump day!!
