Any 2012 Mexico "Dreams" Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone...I just got engaged a month ago and so I say "let the planning begin".  I had no idea there was SO much to think about...thank goodness for this website and all the wonderful brides out there to help!

Anyhow, right now we are thinking of a Dreams Resort on the Mayan Riviera, but can't decide on which location...they are all so stunning. Any thoughts on how to decide?  Oh...and we are thinking May 15th for the big day!

Hi Katie and welcome to the forums! Both Dreams Cancun and Dreams Tulum are wonderful locations! I have shot weddings there many times and I love them both. Here are couple links that might help you decide. Let me know if you have any questions!

I ended up choosing Dreams Cancun - so I will share my rationale in case you care about the same things I do.

 

First thing I wanted was a gazebo to get married at that wasn't right in the middle of the resort.  I know you can't have a "private" wedding when outside at a resort, but I didn't want the old guy in the speedo at the pool to be in all of my wedding pictures.  So with that in mind, that narrowed it down to Dreams Cancun and Dreams Puerto Aventuras.

At Dreams Cancun the gazebo is at a point:

At Puerto Aventuras the gazebo is across a little bridge on an "island":

To decide between these two resorts here are the pros and cons I looked at:

Cancun:

Pros: closer to the airport, better beaches, close to nightlife

Cons: in the middle of a big hotel area, farther from excursion attractions

 

Puerto Aventuras:

Pros: closer to excursion attrractions

Cons:  farther from airport, beaches that have been reviewed poorly on trip advisor, far from nightlife

 

Based on these things I chose Dreams Cancun.  I am sure all brides have different priorities in what they are looking for, but hopefully it helps to hear how another bride made her decision.

 

Best of luck deciding!!

Hello! I am having my wedding next year June 24, 2012 at the Azul hotel.  My travel agent has brought back tons of awesome pictures and raves about the wedding there.  Plus she raves about the wedding cordinator there which I already love because she has already contacted me and we have already started planning our event.  There are many choices.  You just have to go with your gut!

The dreams resorts are amazing!!  I think you can't go wrong with any of them.  It comes down to personal preferences and what you are looking for.  Good luck with your decision!

Don't forget to take a look at Dreams Riviera Cancun... I believe its the newest Dreams hotel in the Riviera Maya area. Were getting married there next June and have been incredibly happy with them so far!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
