    You leave in just about a week - how exciting! Can't wait to hear your review of the place & your big day when you come back!
    I chose the buffet because I was nervous about having only 1 dinner choice. Plus, a lot of the options for the sit-down dinner were seafood and I don't like seafood. So, I am having 26 people come...there will be 28 including us and Ana said we were allowed to have the buffet.

      Perfect! Thanks for the info :) I don't like seafood as well and was a little put off by all the seafood options for dinner!

        For those of you who have emailed the spa...how long did it take for you to get a reply? I am trying to set-up appointments for my bridesmaids and my mom for their hair. I emailed the spa email address last week and still haven't heard back

              Angela-- Has Ana let you substitute things from the package? This is my ONLY hesitation from going with the package.... I do not need a minister, photograher or the mexican music set. Will she let us take that out?

                Laura22610....do you happen to have the buffet menu and what the price per person is? We are expecting a large group so will probably be forced to do the buffet....

                Thanks!

                  when i emailed him, pedro emailed me back the same day (within an hour actually). i would try again, maybe it got overlooked?

                    Hey ladies, saw this on the Dreams Riviera Cancun facebook page and figured I'd share it here for those who haven't seen it:

                    We just got back from our wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort and it is one of the most beautiful properties we have stayed at. We travel often and we were, as was everyone in our group of 45 people, extremely pleased with the property, spa, food and staff. No one had anything bad to say. (However, some of the parents commented that they were mislead about the Emperor's Club. They were told before booking that they could leave children there and receive a pager, but once there that service was denied). Nevertheless, we actually referred several people to the resort before we even got there. We have nothing but great things to say to all who have asked about our trip back here at home. We're quite certain there will be a few more guests in the future, as well as a few within our group that have expressed interest in another visit there.

                    Regarding our wedding. Ours was a week of sunshine, except for the two hours we needed for our outdoor pool gazebo ceremony. If you are planning a wedding here, the only thing you need to have is a good Plan B in case it rains. The resort photographers are absolutely amazing. They were kind enough to give us another photo shoot the next morning in the sun on the beach, which gave us an unbelievable collection of photos. If you want to see their work, here is the link to the slideshow they made for us Nelli & Ivica

                      Oh, I think these pictures have been posted here before but wasn't sure if the review was :)
