Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I am planning to use Del Sol. I emailed Lorena asking if I can substitute the photography included in our package for something else but like you said, I don't expect an answer anytime soon. Hopefully they will allow me to substitute. If not, I will most likely use the photo "package" (since I believe its only 1 hour you get) for our honeymoon dinner on the beach and maybe a stroll on the beach.

 

There are a few items in the package I wish to substitute for something else (ie, the wedding flags, makeup, video, photos). Has anyone had any luck substituting the items in their package???

I've seen a few people ask about table sizes and this is the info I just received from Lorena:

 

*What size are the tables for the reception? The round tables are 1.84 meters/ diameters

 

* what size and shape would the bride and groomâ€s sweetheart table be?185 centimeters

 The size is:

*What types of chairs do you have?  In the packages are included 2: the garden chairs and the chairs with white covers (see the attached). The extras we have the tiffany chairs (white, gold, silver, black) and bamboo chairs and acrylic chairs.

Just got back yesterday from mexico! Everything was better than I could have imagined. Yamina was wonderful to work with. Here is the link to my shutterfly site where I uploaded all of my pictures. Santiago from adventure photos was our photographer. http://drewp.shutterfly.com/pictures/1522
Where dId you get your sashes? I've been searching for the right color turquoise and your color is exactly what I've been looking for!

 Love your dress, you looked stunning. I also loved your centerpieces, where you got them?
Thanks! The flowers I got at michaels, the placemats from crate and barrel, and the lanterns I found online. I don't remember the specific site but if you search for white scroll lanterns, a bunch of places have them!

What vendor fee are they charging you to bring in Del Sol. They asked me to pay $250 to bring Victor Herrera, which I find outrageous. I just want to make sure they are being consistance with their fees.

I had inquired about that in my questionnaire email. I guess because my wedding is the furthest away they haven't gotten back to me. Hopefully it isn't as outrageous as your quote. But I will see. When my WC answers me I would let you know.

 

Also, are you using the resort's DJ. I was told that in order to use an outside DJ, I would have to pay for their room (for 1 night). Now that I think is ridiculous!
