Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering if anyone has anyone has any good advice. I'm really stressing out about informing my guests of the rates for the hotel. We are working with a recommended travel agent but even then, they are asking $1,064 per person in a garden view room for 5 nights not including flight. That just seems like a lot to ask! Any insight would help :) Thanks

Hello Ladies

 

Odd question, What time will the groom start getting ready for the ceremony?

 

Our ceremony is at 4.00pm

 

Our guests are all staying in a different resort so he is going to stay at their resort for the night before the wedding and my bridesmaids are going to stay at DRC for the night with me

 

So i need to know what time he should be back at DRC to start getting ready

 

Hope you can Help!

Good Morning/Afternoon girls,

 

Are any of you having a legal ceremony out there? We are and i have just had an email back from the Mexican consulate saying that i need my birth certificate to be apostilled at the Foreign office. This is ok for me because i am not getting married untill August but just incase you didnt realise apparently you have to do this for using UK documents in a different country if you want it to be legal! Apparently some birth certificates may already have the stamp on but i only dug mine out at the weekend and realised it doesnt!!! No-one at any stage has told me about this so just letting you know if you are having a legal wedding to look out for it.

That is a lot.  We originally quoted our guests $544 for a limited time if they reserved with $50.  It did go up but not more than $670 for 5 nights.  Granted, ours is in July.  Your are doing it in their high season.  Just remember that the people who really want to go, will go.  I suggest making a wedding website and putting the info on there.  Ours is in my signature.  Feel free to take a look.  :)

We got married a couple weeks ago on May 18th and we had an awesome experience.  We got there on a Wednesday and our wedding was that Friday.  We met with Yamina the day we got there to go through everything again.  We were emailing back and forth a lot a couple weeks before.  I brought my table runners and chair sashes but did everything else through the resort. 

 

We went with DJ Mauricio Neri and he was awesome! He also did our music for the ceremony.  We met with him on Thursday afternoon and we gave him a list of songs for the ceremony and he also took good notes on his computer.  We also have him a list of songs we wanted to play at the reception and then just told him to play similar music when that list ran out. 

 

The two nights before our wedding it rained so at 3 on our wedding day Yamina came in and asked if we wanted to move the reception to the ballroom.  I couldnâ€t decide because I didnâ€t want to move it inside but I also didnâ€t want it to rain.  I told her to go ask Luke (my husband) and that he could make the final decision.  He wanted it outside so we decided to keep it outside.  I am so happy that we did because the weather was perfect.  It was windy but it didnâ€t rain.  The following 3 nights the weather wasnâ€t good so we got really lucky!

The service at the resort was amazing and we originally booked the honeymoon suite and they upgraded us to the Master suite which was awesome.  Here is my slideshow.

Also, if anyone is interested, my husband condensed our wedding video so he could put it on facebook and show it to our friends and family so here is the link to that.

 

The first part of the video is a little cheesy because it is a generic but the rest of it is great.  The first song that they are playing (when everyone is first getting there)we didnâ€t pick but the rest of the songs  are the songs that we picked during the times that they played them.  The video was just running a little slow on my computer but it might be my internet connection.  The actual video runs smooth.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
