Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Just got back from our wedding at Dreams and it was fantastic! We used the gazebo and then had our private beach party reception on South Beach. It was absolutely perfect in every way. They are fantastic and I had nothing to worry about.

 

Yahhhhhh!!!

I know I've probably asked this before but I cannot find the answer when looking back..

Could anyone help me with determining the difference between North Beach & South Beach..

 

I remember hearing one of them was more 'secluded'

trying to determine where is the best location for our ceremony that is a little more private than the other. 

 

South beach is on the side past Barracuda's bar. Not sure if this is the more secluded one but ti was definitely great for the reception. After seeing the pool deck receptions, I was so happy I decided not to do that. But it all depends if you want sand under your feet and privacy or not.

Silly question . .I am having my ceremony on the beach and reception on the pool deck. .any thoughts on what I should do for shoes? I was thinking I should just go barefoot for the ceremony . . since it will be 5 pm. .but not sure what to do for the reception. I don't want to get the dress hemmed for high heels and be barefoot for the ceremony. Thoughts?

Hey Ladies,

 

I got back from my wedding at DRC about two weeks ago and just posted a giant review:

Wedding was Jan 28 at 430 pm at the wedding gazebo, followed by 530 cocktail hour on the Desires Terrace, and 7-11 pm reception on the pool deck. Everything was literally perfect, stunning, and so relaxing - you will NOT be disappointed in your choice to get married here. I'm so sad my planning and big day are over - enjoy every minute!

Read your review.  Thanks so much!!!  Question for you...is the Desires Terrace by the Ballroom?  We've scheduled our cocktails on the terrace and reception in the Ballroom. Do you know the proximity of the two?

Read your review.  Thanks so much!!!  Question for you...is the Desires Terrace by the Ballroom?  We've scheduled our cocktails on the terrace and reception in the Ballroom. Do you know the proximity of the two? 

They are literally 15 steps from each other, couldn't be closer. There is a hallway with the disco (Desires) on the end, then the wedding office, then the ballrooms. Excellent selection!

Lindsayczach thank you so so so much for the review! It can be so stressful to plan a wedding with such little communication from the resort so a positive review makes me feel so great about everything, thank you! A couple questions for you:

1. Did you do any outside activities during your stay?

2. How was transportation to the airport?

3. How did you fly with your dress?

4. Was the ballroom well air conditioned?

5. Did you pay for the wedding with credit card or cash? Can you pay before you get to the resort?

If anyone has answers to these i would appreciate it.

 

Congratulations to everyone! (My wedding is 6/12/14, any other brides during that week?)

Hi Heidi!

Our wedding is 6/14/14! We will be there from the 10th! How exciting, we will probably meet there! :) How are your plans going?

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
