Thank you so much. The song is by Laura Jansen, it was also our first dance song. The hotel does the slideshow for you for no extra cost and gives you the link to it to share with friends and family.
Is this included in your wedding package that you pay for? When is this sideshow done up for you? All this info sure helpd a person to get organized! Thank you

Thank you so much! That really helps. How did you get in touch with Anel? I asked my wedding coordinator if I could reserve her as the photographer and I never really got an answer. Do you have any good pictures of the pool deck? If you do, could you email them to me at Rach0636@aol.com. Thank you so much again!
Yes, if anyone has good pics showing recept on pool deck I would love to see them please! Our ceremony is at the gazebo, cocktail hour at jacuzzi & recept on pool deck. Email is lkkato@platinum.ca. Thank you

Hey guys!! Haven't commented here in a while although we come constantly to read all of the great reviews and to see some of the amazing slideshows.  Congrats to all the already married couples and to the ones like us that are only a couple of weeks away.  Feels like yesterday we were not sure of our destination for the wedding and here we are leaving on the 27th of June.  So EXCITING!  We just have one question for all of those who have already been at Dreams Riviera.  How does the resort manage the all inclusive benefits?  Do all of the guests wear wrist bands that must be worn at all times? We don't know how we feel about having that in our pictures.  Also how do they know that any random person isn't joining the reception if we have it on the pool deck.  Just some questions that make us curious and were wondering if anyone knows the answer.  Basically how does the resort manage the all inclusive part of it all since i saw in website that they dont require wristbands.  We're a bit confused.  Thanks and happy planning to all!!!

 

I actually got engaged at DRC last May the resort is enclosed there are no wristbands when you go to the restaurants they ask for your name and room #.

I think for the most part random people would stick out if they just tried to join your reception especially since the pool deck turns into a private section for weddings.

That's so cool, Melissa!  We got engaged in June at two resorts down from Dreams...then went to look at Dreams for the wedding.  Crazy coincidence

That's awesome -yeah I loved it there that's why when we picked a Destination wedding DRC was really the only option. 

While on vacation there I would watch like 2 weddings a day and I never thought it would be me :)

They were always so beautiful that's why I have managed to not overly stress through this whole process!

Our weddings will be great and now were so close- Im super excited!!!

I got the ultimate package but I think it is included in all packages. We got to see and approve the slideshow a couple of days after the wedding and we got the finished link about a week after the wedding. Anel was our photographer and she put it together. I noticed though that each photographer is different.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
