    I sent out my save the dates at the 11 month mark and now im 7 months away from my wedding, I was thinking of having them in the mail by September so that will give people 5 months to reply. Everyone whos invited already knows they are invited but I can't wait to see how many official replies I get :)

    This is exactly the time frame that I used to send out my save the dates and invites.  I sent mine invites out at the end of May/beginning of June and requested RSVP back by August 15th due to the cut-off of my group room contract.  My wedding doesn't take place till 11/11/2012 but this gives me enough time to finish up last minute gifts and what not.  And to be honest, people are slow at returning them.

       Thanks for the info. We still have at least one guest who hasn't booked yet!

      Hello Everyone!

       

      I am sort of caught up on my rest.  We had a power outtage at the house and my internet has been down.  I feel so cut off!!!

      Anywho.....because it was so hot...I decided to sneak off to the library to take advantage of the free air....and internet.  Also....I changed my name on my license, went to SS office.....

       

      I am still waiting for my slideshow link and I will be sure to post when I get it.

       

      Just another tidbit of info....before it slips my mind.....

       

      For those of us that have guests that will opt to book on their own (and not use your travel agent) or wait until the last minute......

       

      Please....please make sure they book DREAMS RIVIERA CANCUN!!!! 

      NOT DREAMS CANCUN!!!!!

       

      My brother (through no fault of his own) was taken to Dreams Cancun in error.  The transfer company made an error.  Be sure to let your guests know to tell the driver DREAMS RIVIERA!!!!  My brother came in the day after we did and although he was booked correctly, they drove him to the wrong resort....about 40 minutes away.  Because the van made other stops, he was in the van for over an hour!  When he arrived, he knew immediately, that it was the wrong resort.  He refused to get out of the van (need I say more...)....they corrected the mistake and drove him to the correct resort. 

       

      But wait....it gets better.....

      My MOH's boyfriend waited until the very last minute to book his trip.  He booked the Sunday before the wedding on Expedia.  Let me first begin by saying, I booked a friend of my Mother's about 2 weeks before the wedding.  When I went on Expedia, I was unable to pull up Dreams Riviera Cancun....only Dreams Cancun came up.  I ended up booking her on Book It....

       

      Ok...back to the story....so.....My MOH's boyfriend booked on Expedia..... (NO BUENO!!!!!!)

      Because we had had the experience with my brother the previous day, she was curious to know why his travel info said Dreams Cancun...

      Her boyfriend was taken to the other resort and the front desk told him they really could not help him.  So....my MOH got on the phone with Expedia to book him at our resort.....BUT.....because it was after 3:00 (I think) he would be charged for the night.  He decided to stay because my wedding was not until the next day......

       

      IT GETS BETTER!!!!.....

       

      My MOH arranged to have my bachelorette at Senor Frogs (More detail to come in my review) and once we were dropped off, she was going to stay the night with her boyfriend at Dreams Cancun.........again No BUENO! The next day she called me at 7:00 AM to advise she came right back to our resort. First.....she said and I quote "I understand why your brother refused to get out of the van....". Secondly, she said they wanted to charge her $130.00 to stay for the night (kind of understandable but they could have confirmed her reservation at DRC).  She said other resort is the last on the strip and NOT by any means comparable to DRC.  She said it was like comparing the Rtiz Carlton to a Motel 6.....now...my MOH happens to be quite picky....but I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that our resort DRC....is

      MUY BUENO!!!!

       

      So....I'll repeat.....

       

      PLEASE BE SURE TO ADVISE YOUR GUEST TO MAKE SURE THEY BOOK DREAMS RIVIERA CANCUN!!!!

       

      They will be happy they did!!!

       

      I hope this helps...

       

      P.S. - this message was not intended to offend anyone booking at Dreams Cancun....it's just important that guest know where they will be!

        Does anyone have the contact information for the florist the resort uses? I'd like to get a more accurate price on the flowers I want.

         

        Thanks!

          Does anyone know if you have to make reservations at the restaurants at night or if you can just show up? I've heard you have to go really early to get reservations at all inclusives, but I don't know if that's true. Does anyone know how that works? Thanks!

                      If you know the rough time of when the sun starts to go down that will be grately appreciated aswell, we are hoping to have fire dancers at the cocktail hour so it obviously needs to be dark!
                      Thanks

                       

                      Hey RobynKelly,

                       

                      While I can't tell you specific times of day, I'll show you some photos from a bride a few months ago at Dreams Riviera Cancun while the sun melted down...so beautiful! She had a gazebo ceremony as well :)
