    Hi,

     

    our wedding is on the 29th April and we booked our wedding through thomas cook. However we are now going direct with DRC ourselves as Thomas Cook keep saying that they cannot do anything!!!!

     

    It would be much appreciated if you could email me all of the above!

    many thanks and happy planning!

          Has any one had or having the cold fireworks? we want them for when we arrive at our reception however I just got a reply from Evangelina saying they cost $150 each!

          I really want some of the little extras but it all seems so expensive!

           

          F.Y.I

          some other prices I also received from Evangelina

          Tableclothes $35 + tax each

          drapery for the gazebo $250 + tax

          floral arrangements for the gazebo $140 + tax each

            So I just got back from our wedding and I know there was a couple things I told you that after having our wedding there I would let you know. However, I'm drawing a blank right now. But I know your wedding and other December 2012 brides are right around the corner so any questions you may have please let me know.

             

            Here are a couple things for upcoming brides to think about in terms of timing:

            -Sun sets at 5:30 sharp, but the pool is more or less shaded around 4:30 pm

             -Our ceremony was at 3pm with cocktail 5pm and dinner 6pm- I thought these were great times and left us picture time in between with lighting and the sunset

             

            -We had the cocktail at the North Jacuzzi- Great Spot

            -Reception- Pool Deck- loved the ambiance but the only complaint I have is that it was extremely windy on our day and all the sand from the beach was blowing up and getting all over us and in our eyes. If they would put up some sort of clear shield thing in between it would help but after some drinks people didn't mind at all.

             

            -Rehearsal Dinner- We reserved 10 ppl at Bourdex, but to be honest its not that necessary unless the resort is super packed as we were able to sit 12 people another night at the Portofino with no problem.

             

            -Food: All the restaurants on the resort were GREAT, our favorite was Portofino as there are just sooo many choices on the menu and you really can't go wrong with any of them.

             

            Photographer- We had Anel- she is absolutely amazing to work with and her pictures turned out well. Will post slide show once I have it.

             

            DJ- Cesar- he got the party started and we didn't sit down the whole night. This was money well spent!!

             

            Spa- My hair and make-up turned out great, I did take a picture with me for my hair and they did it exactly like the picture. However, some of the others in my group did not and just described to the girls what they wanted and they all turned out awesome.

             

            Overall- The DREAMS Riviera is by far the best All Inclusive Resort in terms of food, service, cleanliness and just everything all together that I have every been to. I'm soo happy I choose to have our wedding here. The only downfall is that the resort is very Family oriented (more kids then expected) but you get used to it after a day or so.

             

            So, those of you who have choosen this resort for your upcoming wedding and are stressing about the non responses from the wedding coordinators, TRUST ME AND DON'T WORRY!! They are extremely busy and will have everything organized once you meet with them and it will all turn out perfectly :) I'm type A and had to trust past reviews that the coordinators had it together and stop stressing and I'm so glad I did as they really do have all your info in a folder ready to go and make your day come true!

             

            Best of Luck to all future Brides out there and CONGRATS!!!


            THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR DETAILED REVIEW! My wedding isn't until March but I needed some "updated" peace of mind!

                Lots of April brides here by the sounds of things!  We're getting married April 18th, 2013 and will be at the resort April 14th - 21st.  We'll have 25 adult guests and 6 children with our group.  Does anyone know how the children work in the wedding package, in terms of the guest numbers for dinner etc.?  All of the children in our group are young (the oldest is 6) so I can’t see them taking up one of the 20 guests included in the wedding packages, but I’m not quite sure how that will work in terms of up-charges for extra guests for cake, dinner, etc.  Are children under a certain age included in all the wedding festivities for free, or at a reduced rate maybe?  When booking our travel packages, I think children under 2 travelled free, and children under 12 qualified for a child rate, so maybe there is something similar for the wedding, but I'm not really sure.

                 

                 

                I'm having trouble deciding how many extras to buy from the resort, and how many extra little things to bring with us (personalized napkins, coasters, etc etc)...  I'm trying to keep it relatively simple so that we're not dragging a million suitcases with us, or blowing the budget, but it sure is hard making all of these decisions!

                  Does anyone know how I should bring the music for the technician at the ceremony?  CD, mp3 player , or do they have music and you just tell them what songs you want?
