Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I see some people are looking for itineraries.  Here is mine.  Hope it helps!

Arrive Thursday

Friday- meet with Gina in her office

Saturday morning- rehearsal for the wedding party and parents

Sunday- wedding day- Hair appointments are at 2:00

6:00- ceremony at the gazebo

7:00- cocktail hour by the jacuzzi

8:00- 11:00- reception on the pool terrace

 

Not sure when Anel starts- we got package 3.  Since it includes the hair appointment photos, I'm assuming 2? 

Videographer- we just are using the included package, which is just the ceremony. 

 

Am I missing anything??  Hope not!

I think the 3rd package only includes 6 hours so if you want her to stay until 11 when the reception is over, she won't start until 5pm. 

That's where I'm coming in to a dilemma too.... I got package 4 which also includes 6 hours, but because my reception ends at 8:30 she won't start until 2:30. My ceremony is at 3:30 so.... that means I'll be getting my hair and makeup done before 2:30. 

That's why I was wanting some sort of itinerary for the day. Like how everyone is splitting up time with the photographer (guys room/girls room) hair appts, getting ready etc.

Thanks for this too. I had my ceremony happening at 4:00pm but now I'm thinking of moving everything back at least an hour. my fiance is worried that 7pm is too late to start the reception though! Maybe I'll be able to persuade him. I mean, sunset will be around 7:25pm....

What time are you doing your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception?

OMG I read your message & FORGOT to reply!  I am sorry.  I am going nuts.  I still have over 30 things on the to-do list because apparently I am not as organized as I'd like to be!!!

 

Ceremony is 6:00 PM - I did this in hopes it would be cooler.  I expect it to go until 6:25 or so.  Then champagne toast at the end for all the guests.

 

Cocktail Hour is 7-8 PM at the North Jacuzzi.  Seeing this in person solidified the location for me.  

 

Reception is 8-11 PM at the Seaside Grill!  

 

Anel is taking photos all day - but not sure what time that starts.  My videographer is coming in at 4:30 and staying until 9:30!  

LyndseyM

I hope you have a fantastic time I cannot wait to see your photos etc

 

I am having all of the same locations and havent really seen many of the jacuzzi cocktail hour and seaside grill!!!!!!

Hey Lindsey

 

I'm so excited for you! :)

 

Do you mind me asking how much extra it is costing you to use the seaside grill for your reception?

I'm trying to book it and confirm costs but eva isnt replying to my emails. I'm not getting married to April next year so i understand why she isnt replying quickly

Hi Ladies-

 

So I've decided that I'm going to do a rehearsal dinner for close family, however from all the reviews and what not I can't seem to remember what everyone has done or what is the best one to go with.  If you could let me know where you have planned yours or what restaurants from reviews are good that would be really helpful!!  Thanks sooo much for all the help in this whole planning process as I would be completely lost.

okay girls this is totally un related to dreams BUT if you are bored and can give me an opinion id appreciate it..

 

SO 2 days ago I boughy my dress. i put it on and fell absolutely in love with it, i know its the dress i want to wear- no doubt about it. HOWEVER when i went to pay for it and get my measurements taken she aked me if i was ordering it in the color i tried on...... because the color i tried on was champage/ivory. The champagne is very subtle and underneath the ivory & the rest of the dress is IVORY.

 

I was DEAD SET on getting a bright white wedding dress.... myself and my friends all though the dress was white until she told us it wasnt!! anyway they convinced me that i loved it as is and to not change the color but its 2 days later and its all i could think about!!! The consultant told me that the designer I ordered uses a very bright white and it cheapens the look of the dress. she said the one i tried on was the richest looking & i would be dissapointed with the all white, but i can still change my mind!!

 

The dress comes in either champage/ivory/silver, /ivory/ivory/silver or white/white/silver. not only did i NOT get the white but i got the CHAMPAGE ( just saying the word scares me ) i am totally freaking out.

 

am i going to look dirty next to my white tablecloths ??? AHHH GRRR someone help me what would you do !?!? my friends and family thought i looked beautiful and think im insane and dont want to hear about it anymore. =**(

    • 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?
