    Hey ladies - since I've had some requests for it - I'm attaching my diagram.  We had a cigar roller there as well - so that's what the extra table is off to the side.  


    The tables on the left side of the diagram are next to the dj and his speakers - so I would suggest that if you have older people coming - put them on the right side.



    We didn't feel tight at all, tons of room - the deck can hold 200 people.  Cocktail hour was at the Desire's lounge - it was nice for me because Desire's is air conditioned and I could stand inside while the girls bustled my dress...and I had 18 bustles :) :)

      Hey ladies -my ceremony was at 5:30 and I was paranoid about hair so I scheduled myself, my 3 bridesmaids, flower girl and mother of the groom starting at 1:30 and we finished at 3pm - and two of the girls had their hair washed, dried and then styled.  The women in the salon work pretty fast and they do a great job.  We also brought our own makeup to the salon and they let us run wild in there and do our makeup so by 3pm we were ready to go back to the room and get dressed and take pictures.

        I heard from the new Ana @ DRC today. She said she is my WC. I am a little concerned as she asked me to pick locations for ceremony, cocktails and reception....even though I already gave them to the old Ana!  Also she said it would be $15pp +11% + 15%  to have a rehearsal dinner at El Patio (this is not a private event, just a space to have my group of 35 people together).

            Our wedding is at 4pm also and I am getting my hair done at 1pm.  My bridesmaids and my mom and his mom are all getting their hair done at 11:30.  My future sister  in law is doing my makeup after that 1pm.  She is a wedding photographer herself and said to allow at least 30-45 minutes to just get into you wedding dress, so I wanted to make sure to have enough time!!  We are doing alot of pictures before the wedding too.  Like me and my bridesmaids and my fiance and his groomsmen.  We are not seeing eachother before walking down the isle though.

              I know this may be a weird questions, But i am one of those who's choosing to do my own hair because I'm a hairstylist, and well my trust level with other stylists isn't that high lol.. but I was checking some pre-wedding checklists on google and it mention to check with your resort to make sure they have normal outlets in the rooms to plug stuff in? Otherwise you may need a converter?

              Has anyone heard of this, or any brides who've already married at Dreams Riviera Cancun- can you tell me if they have "normal outlets?" lol

              I'd appreciate any response!!

                I read on their facebook wall a while ago that they have regular outlets.

                  Yes we are using mishka, I am having her design a tag and we will just fill in the appropriate names when we get to the resort. The maracas will then all be laid out at the reception on an "escort card" table and the tags will tell each guest where to sit.

                      Can you paste the chart onto the thread?  I don't have enough priviledges to open the file.
