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

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. =**(

    • 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
