Hello!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
We just got back last night from our wedding and honeymoon!! We want to go back already! Everything was absolutely perfect! I could not be happier with chosing the Tres Rios as our wedding venue. Luis and Allibe are both helpful and I love the flexibility of the resort. We had a Catholic Ceremony in Xcaret Chapel and then our reception was at the Tres Rios in the round outdoor terrace. We had 53 guests travel with us:) Our welcome party was at the beach (between the beach and the river) and it was amazing! More than I could have asked for! We really think it made a huge difference to use our outside wedding coordinator Lissette Velez. She was AMAAAZIIIING! I can not even tell you girls how much she helped us and how BEAUTIFUL and smoothly evereything was on both nights. She coordinated everything and it all went so smoothly. She really made us feel so at ease and we did not stress out because she was so hands on and taking care of so many things that whole week. I could not be happier!
DJ Mannia - AMAZING!!! WE got him because Lissette our coordinator recommended them and I could not give him enough great reviews. He kept the party going and announced the whole wedding party when we came in. We got ambience music for the welcome party (which consists of a sound system and also a staff member from Mannia switching up the music). I loved loved the music - it was a lot of songs that we knew with a lot of beachy type of twists. AMAZING! I had never heard it but it really set the mood. My husband and I loved each song that was redone. We had no idea what this would be like and were pleasantly surprised. THe night of the wedding we had the full DJ package and Carlos was our DJ. He was great! We loved him.
Hair & Make up - Sara Tamargo: AMAZING!! She was so pleasant to work with. I loved my make up and it lasted all day and night even through all the sweating and happy tears!
If I can advise anything is to use Lissette Velez because she really helped more than words can say and I can't even imagine how things would have gone with out her. Unfortunately - she will be leaving her company to work with Dreams Riviera Cancun but she was so pleasant to work with and she worked with our prices.
I will post a lengthier review with more detail but feel free to ask me any questions.
Also - we travelled with 53 guests and everyone had a great time. We had most of our guests raving about the resort and how much of a great time they had in Mexico. Unfortunately, there were 3 couples that had a problem with their room. I haven't dug deeper but basically one couple left early because of their issue with the resort. Make sure you let your guests know that not all rooms are ocean view with a king size bed and jaccuzzi. These 3 cases wanted all 3 of those items but apparently the hotel doesn't have king size beds in all the rooms. I think you really can't please everyone but it did make us upset to hear they had a bad time due to this. Again - it's hard to please everyone when travelling with a large group. But like I said everyone else aside from that raved and was so happy with the resort.
Even with that we wouldn't pick a different resort because we loved it so much and wouldn't even be able to think of a better place for our wedding and large group.
You girls will have a great wedding!! Let me know if you have any questions!
I got a lot of help from the girls on this forum especially Avi - thank you!
