Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Congrats! I know your wedding is going to be beautiful! As far as timing of when to cut the cake and things like that, my (almost husband!) and I are doing all the first dance, mother-son dance, etc., right away, and toasts, so that we can enjoy the eating, and then the cake cutting after dinner, then dancing. I read from a bride on here before to have a general itinerary of how you wanted the reception to go, and make 3 copies - give them all to the wedding coordinator, and she gives one for the staff, and one to the DJ. That way, everyone is totally in sync. Also, I think you need to give someone the heads up you want to cut the cake 5 minutes ahead of time, because they have to bring it out from a refrigerator inside the hotel. Have a wonderful time!

It has been a while since I've poked my head in, must have fell off the list a while back. Happy to see so many brides around the same time as me! "Kate, Nikki and Annie" Hope to see you ladies there!!

 

So, just curious for some opinions ladies, how does everyone feel about the paper lanterns? I was thinking I would just hang them on a strand along one side of the deck, maybe 5-8? Does anyone have any other ideas? Also, trying to figure out how many I should get?

 

Thanks for any input. I am officially going to start scouring this board. T-minus 10 weeks!!

Thanks! Yes I brought the sashes.

The cupcakes were $3 extra for the 20 ppl included in the ultimate package and $5 for any additional ppl. They didn't have a cupcake stand though so I brought my own (it was just a plain white cardboard one that I dressed up a little bit....easy to pack!)

hmmm.... I may do the cupcake thing instead! I luv it! geat idea!

 

Where did you get your sashes from?

For the MOST part I'm not freaking out-just need to finish a few last minute things for our welcome bags. 

 

One thing I haven't even started thinking about is the music for all of the ceremny and stuff!  We are "dancing" down the aisle to I think I Wanna Marry You, but other than that haven't thought of it.  Also haven't made any decisions about the timing of the reception with when to cut the cake and stuff...

 

We picked a different song for each of our wedding party to enter in with...but they don't know what song it is!  LOL...so like our super tall thin friend is coming in to "will the real slim shady please stand up",.  They are all pretty funny!

 

Any insight or help with the music stuff?  We have a DJ so I guess I'm just thinking I'll leaving it up to him except for our father/daughter, first dance and mother son songs...

 

Happy planning!!

 

Katie

When is your wedding. We may see each other there. We arrive on the 4th of June and our wedding renawal is the 7th.

Just an FYI to anyone looking for cheap flip-flops for your OOT bags....I went by Michaels yesterday and they have them on sale for $1.24 a pair! I already shot my OOT bag budget, but am still thinking about it....

I 'm doing the Love package. I tried to swap our 36 pictures for the Mariachi Trio (then upgrade to a bigger photo package), but Yamina said no....womp womp.

Just wanted to let you all know in case anyone else thought of doing that also.

 

So I think I will add 2 extra hours of photography (1 hour of us getting ready & 1 hour at the reception) and also add the Marachi Trio to our Cocktail Hour.

Do you know how many hours of photography is included in the ULTIMATE package? I won't be using their photographer but I would like to exchange the videography and the photography for the DJ. I included this request in my questionnaire... I haven't received an answer yet.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
