Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts


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.

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.

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 :-)

    • we are a Karisma wedding specialist...Do you have any questions you need answered?   you can email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
