    Hi ladies, we are planning to get married in may 2013 at DRC . there are so many questions I have ! We know of certain things we want for the day but don't know how to go about organising everything. We have also heard that the wedding planner from DRC is not that good. We have heard about an amazing wedding planner called Tara. However we Are on a budget! Has anyone got married at the DRC recently who can answer some of my questions? Thanks x

      Congratulations Robyn & Kelly and welcome to the forums! So many great ideas and helpful brides on here Im sure you will find your answers! I have had a few requests to capture weddings at Dreams Riviera Cancun but because of their outside vendor policy... those weddings changed locations. :-(

      Let me know if there is anything specific you need... best of luck!

              Hi, I am getting married last weekend of April, 2013 and have been looking at two resorts DRC and Riu Palace Cabo. I really have my heart set on DRC but as you mentioned their wedding planner is almost impossible to get a response from. Have you started talking to anyone there yet????  I have been talking to Evangelina and it has been stressful.  I heard other names associated with DRC for the most part Ana but not sure if she is still there.

                Congrats all 2013 brides at DRC!  We are booked for January 2013...can't wait!  Did anyone get any information from the resort once the date was booked like menus etc?  I got my confirmation email, but haven't heard much since...happy planning!!!

                  Hi, congratulations! No I haven't got in contact with anyone at DRC yet, as still trying to organise family and friends at home and who is definitely coming. I think we have definitely decided that DRC is the hotel for us. I know people have stayed there and it sounds perfect for what we would like, it is smaller than the Riu Palace Cabo and a bit more modern which suits us better. They both look stunning but I think as they are both large hotels we will have problems with communication with the wedding coordinator. Just a little bit of advice that someone gave to me. April/may/June are the busiest months for weddings, so u need to book the date of your wedding in the next couple of months with the hotel. Otherwise you may not get the day that you want. Please let me know how you get on.

                    Thank you! I actually booked my date with DRC this week and send in my deposit yesterday. April 27th 2013!!!!! How are you doing with you planning? I see that you want a May wedding, I know there is another bride that booked her date already thats getting married at DRC on May 3rd 2013 so it looks like her and I will be overlapping with our vacation stay.  There is another forum on this website that has been very helpful to me and my decision making you should check it out (thats where all the previous brides, current brides and future brides are) Everyone has been super helpful in answering questions and even emailing pdf files to each other since the wedding cordinators take forever. Here is the link:
