    got a more detailed email from Ana today (the new WC) confirming all my details. Think things at DRC are coming along nicely now that she is at the actual resort. She is supposed to send me more photos of the resort wedding/reception locations soon. Will post as soon as I get them.

        I don't have the spa prices but I have heard that you can get the info if you email Pedro Castillo at Spa@dreamsrivieracancun.com.mx.

        Are you planning on getting married at Dreams RC? If so, I believe the wedding packages come with a free bride and groom massage.

          Is anyone doing the symbolic ceremony instead of the legal ceremony? I think we have decided to, just to avoid any complications and extra fees. We are thinking of doing the legal thing AFTER the actual ceremony in Mexico. We want the first time that we say vows to be on the beach in front of family and friends. We don't want to make a big deal of the legal ceremony at all....just to make it seem as though the beach ceremony is the "real" thing. Do you happen to know if the resort requires a marriage certificate in order to have a symbolic ceremony. I have heard that some resorts require this and therefore we would have to do the legal ceremony before going to Mexico. Just wondering if anyone has looked into this yet.

            Dreams Riviera Cancun is at the top of the list for resorts that are not Adults Only. In terms of the prices I was enquiring in terms of guests.

            I don't think you need a marriage certificate in order to have a symbolic wedding.

              We are planning on getting married in October next year. There will be people coming from Slovakia (Bride side), New Zealand (Groom) and other countries such as the UK. The first our our parents will meet face to face will be in Mexico. Fantastic!

                Hey ladies -
                I'm looking to get married in September 2010 either at Azul Sensatori or Dreams Riviera Cancun. I have a few questions maybe you can help with!

                1. Have any of you talked to Ana about doing additional private parties and what options we have? For example, we want to do a welcome reception and a rehearsal dinner and possibly an after party after the reception. I got the pricing for the private reception but no menu options...Did any of you get that information?

                2. Did anyone have pictures sent to them of the reception / ceremony locations?

                Thanks!

                  From what I gather about private events, if you chose to do either of the Dreams of Love or Dreams Ultimate packages you may be able to forgo the One hour Silver Cocktail Party with hors d’oeuvres (for up to 20 guests) and do a welcome cocktail party instead, but they may still charge if you want a private event. As for the after party after the reception, we will be doing this as well. What I have read from other resorts is that the party continues in the disco at the resort as long as there is one and it is open. Not too sure about the disco and the hours for Dreams RC.

                  Locations for the wedding and reception have not been sent out yet. I am waiting for pictures from Ana. She sent an email to me the other day and mentioned that she will send them out as soon as they are available. Once I get them I will try to post on here for everyone. I am sure if anyone else get's photos they will post as well. Until then it is a waiting game for certain info on this resort.
                  Hope this helps a little?

                    That's a great idea about having the Cocktail hour before the ceremony. The guests can easily go to one of the bars and have a drink or two after the ceremony while photo's are being taken then go to the reception for dinner. It would also depend on where the bars are located in relation to the reception venue.

                      Well, depending on the wedding package you chose the one-hour cocktail hour is included already. What some other brides have done (at one of the other Dreams Resorts in Mexico) is NOT have the one-hour cocktail party and instead arrange for a cocktail hour on another night. So for welcome drinks instead or something.

                      There are three wedding packages.
                      These prices are for 2010 and are directly from the website...


                      DREAMS WEDDING IN PARADISE PACKAGE:

                      Selling Price $799 USD

                      This package is complimentary when booking a Preferred Club Premium Room Ocean Front category or higher for a minimum of 7 nights or if 5 rooms are reserved for a minimum of 3 nights in any room category, this package also applies for renewal of vows ceremony.

                      This complimentary package includes:

                      Service of justice of peace or minister
                      Wedding Organization and personalization of our Wedding coordinator
                      Preferential location of the room in the category reserved
                      Preparation and ironing of the wedding dress and grooms tuxedo/suit

                      A $100.00 deposit is required to hold and confirm the wedding date. This deposit will be applied to the total cost of the package. If the couple receives this package complimentary, the deposit will be applied towards any upgrades that the couple adds on. If the couple does not purchase any additional amenities for the wedding itself, this credit may be applied to charges upon check out (phone charges, spa treatments, logo shop purchases, etc.). If for any reason this credit is not used in full, the remaining balance will be refunded at check-out.

                      You can of course opt to not have a package. This is the document that I received from Claudia at the Dreams Cancun Resort but the options I would think would be the same for Dreams RC. Keep in mind that these are the prices for 2008-2009.

                      Also attached is a document that I received from the Dreams Tulum location with the flower choice options and a few other things.

                      Hope this helps some of you with your choices...
