Dreams Riviera Cancun 6-8-13!

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies! I am getting married June 8, 2013. I am very thankful for all of your posts on here but my emotions are up and down! One minute I'm reading not to stress that everything will be perfect, then I read another post that makes me stress! I have had my date set for over 6 months and haven't really put much thought into "planning" assuming everything will be taken care of closer to time, but I am starting to really think I will be behind and i do not want to plan everything at the last minute. I saw someone on here post that they received a packet for planning. Is this the case? My dad is my travel agent who is booking everyone's accommodations but it seems like I still have to do most of the planning with the coordinator. I did not receive any sort of planning materials. I have already sent out save the dates and invitations and most have already rsvp'd. We are planning to have roughly 60 guests. Our ceremony is at 5:30 pm at the gazebo and I am beginning to freak because I was informed there is another ceremony only one hr. prior to mine in the same location. Our reception is scheduled to be on the beach deck...looks nice but I am hearing mixed opinions. Any ideas for great cocktail hour locations? (If we decide to have one.) I have ordered my dress and am working on locating the perfect bridesmaid dresses. I do not want to take a bunch of things for decoration and I am wondering if what the hotel offers is good enough? I am also hearing a lot of mixed opinions on the hotel photographer and salon. Please let me know what you have experienced. I do not want to pay for or deal with hiring outside vendors so using what the hotel offers would be great, but not if it is not good quality. I know this is a lot but I have a lot on my mind and a million other questions to ask so please if you have any answers or words of encouragement please post back.

Congrats kndrashltn ! + welcome to our forum community! yes, lots of decisions and plans to make - but that's all part of the fun journey leading to your most wonderful Big Day!  You'll find  tons of great advice, info + support here, so you're already off to a great start - well done :)


As for using the resort photographer - our advice (based on yrs of experience and brides' feedback) is that you'll be much happier with the results you'll get from one of the numeorus professional photographers in our area.  

After all the time + energy you spend on planning + creating your perfect wedding, it's pretty important to have the photo record of it showing your wedding story in its' best possible depiction.

That takes a professional - who has the experience, training, equipment + most of all.... Interest ...in making that so !


Our brides - who have chosen to spend the extra to hire a professional photographer - are always so happy to have made that excellent choice!

Wishing you all the best with your research + planning process, and that you have the perfect wedding of your dreams! Enjoy :)





team MTM asst, Lynda :)

    • 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.
