    Awesome ! thk, you for your post Laura :) Very helpful.

    I did receive an email today from Ana confirming that the terrace, pool or beach are options for dinner sites.

    Is there a bar/disco at the resort? I didn't think of renting a dance floor(actually it never even occurred to me to rent a dance floor, I assumed something like that would be included) because I figured we'd end up at the disco but now I'm trying to think back....I don't remember reading anything in any of the Dreams descriptions about a disco.....

      Is anyone anywhere of the occupany options for the rooms?!!

      The only room occupancy options I've seen are 3 adults, 2 adults & 2 children or 3 adults and 1 child. Does this mean they will not put 2 in a room

        I think I read something on the Dreams Riviera Cancun Facebook page that said there is a sports bar with plasma tv's surrounding a dance floor And that place is a disco at night. I am pretty sure I read that...

          There is a sports bar/ dance club at the D.R.C. I asked Rod on facebook if you are able to go there and dance. He said yes and that they will have a d.j.

            Well I am booked for May 21 officially. I am so glad that part is over. I was not able to get the sunset time I wanted but I hear the sun sets on the other side of the resort. So I will not really be missing much.
            I am having a very hard time picking the wedding package. At first I was going to just go ahead and do the ultimate wedding package so I would not have to worry about adding anything on. But my T.A/W.P thinks that I would get a cheaper price if I got the free wedding package and add on my reception. I see that some of you are going to be doing the same thing.
            The only thing that I worried about with this is that all the separate prices are going add up more then what the package is priced at. But we will see.
            Also are any of you planning on getting a d.j.? It seems that the d.j for dreams is about 280 a hour.
            In the free wedding package I see that their is not any music for the walking down the aile included. What are you plans for this? I would hate to walk down the aile with no music. I would think it would look kind of strange.
            Last but not least I know that the wedding gazebo is not finished yet but does anyone know if this is going to have a beach view or garden view?

            Okay no really this is the last question lol
            Do you plan on having your honeymoon at dreams or do you think you might go to a adults only resort and get the benefits of having another honeymoon at a different resort?

              hello ladies,

              I'm going to Cancun this weekend to check out some resorts. I was originally going to do Los Cabos (hence the username) but it was a little out of budget for some key family members. Oh the joys of DW planning! I'm considering DRC, but won't be able to visit it since it doesn't open until Oct 1. I'm going to visit Dreams Cancun and ask some questions this weekend. Obviously I'm lost and don't know what I really should be asking, any suggestions?

              Also, I've noticed that when I go to the dreams resort website and enter my dates with 2 guests per room in the Deluxe Room I'm quoted at $1296 for two people w/o flight. I'm hoping if I choose to do it there that I can lock in that rate.

                I have the ultimate package, but I would imagine you can rent equipment that you can hook your ipod up to. This way you can play music as you walk down the aisle. You definitely want music. I went to a wedding this past weekend where there was no music at the ceremony and it seemed as though it was missing something. We just all started clapping because the silence was akward. Ha!

                I have heard that the gazebo is going to have a beach view.

                I haven't researched it yet, but I think we will have our honeymoon at a different resort (2 days after the wedding) since we will have been at DRC for 1 week prior to the wedding. Also, this way if anyone sticks around too much longer after the wedding, we won't feel obligated to entertain them ; ) I would probably choose an adults only resort also.
