Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Hello Lupita,

 

We are going with DJ Edgar with Avi productions.

 

Rodrigo is with Avi productions too and he said that he will be the MC.  I spoke to Rodrigo and his English is pretty good.  I just sent you the playlist, it's a long one.

I would also love a copy of your playlist. My email address is larevalo@diabetescarecenter.com 

 

Thanks!

Hi Sharon,

 

Thanks for sharing. I received your email but no playlist attachment.

 

I would also like to go with Avi productions but I have not read any reviews from past brides. I was almost under the impression that the resort wasn't using Avi productions. I also feel like Ana is pushing for DJ Neri. I guess it's something to think about for us.

 

Thanks again!!pinkie.gif

Hi, please tell me more about the fire dancers. Do you remember the fire dancer's name and did you book them through the resort? I think they look fabulous!!  We plan to having them during our reception it will also be a surprise for our guest.

We had the fire dancers and to be they were worth every cent. $420 for 15-20 minutes, 2 dancers and the drummer and it was HOTT! Our guests were totally surprised, they let my husband to a little fire dancer 101 and it was a gr8 way to finish up dinner.  The minute they were done - the DJ kicked in and the party began.  It was a good lead in to get the dance floor hopping. :-) I think its little touches like that  that make your day even more memorable. The kids LOVED them and our guests are still talking about getting to see them so up front and personal.

Past Brides,

 

Have you all honeymooned at DRC after your wedding? If you did, did you enjoy it? I have been told that it's not the best honeymoon resort so I'm not sure if we should move to a different resort on the Monday after the wedding.

Hi ladies: 

I was wondering if anyone can answer a question for me.  I understand that anyone staying at a different resort, I will have to pay the day pass of 55.00 dollars.  But I'm trying to figure out if there is any extra charges for dinner and cocktail.  If my head count stays at 20 or below, I would think that it covers them, but if my count is over 20 people then I would have to pay the per head fee.  Can anyone confirm this?  Thank you

Hi Latinive,

I might be able to help - I am working with a Wedding coordinator/Travel agent (recommended by Dreams) who told me this:

 

If your guests are attending the special event, including wedding and reception and depart when the reception concludes –  Dreams will NOT charge for a half day pass.

 

Instead, ONLY the cost per person over 20 adults (cocktail hour for over 20 guests @ $25.00 USD per person + 11% tax + 15% service; dinner with International Bar over 20 guests @ $48.00 USD per person + 11% tax + 15% service).

 

hope that helps!

Hey,

 

We booked them thru the resort. I just told the WC that we wanted them and she made it happen. Closer to the date she asked about an exact time.  There were 3 people.  One female dancer (who was FABULOUS), one male dancer and then the 3rd guy blew the conch shell and played the instrument.  They each performed, let Nay (my husband) have a try in between and yelled congrats after the grand finale :-) Funny thing is, we were at the resort during Cinco de Mayo (sp?) so a few nights before our wedding the resort had the fire dancers perform to celebrate it. So it was pretty wicked to have them there just for us and to experience it that close. We got great pics.  They had a couple of them in the slide show I posted earlier :-) But Iong story short, we LOVED them :-)

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
