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!

    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
