Anyone not stay at the resort they got married at??

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have my heart set on Dreams Riviera Cancun, but a lot of friends and family feel it is to expensive and will stay at another resort. We feel it will be important to us to be with our guests, is it possible to have the wedding at dreams and stay at another resort??? thanks Melissa.

That's my dilemma as well.  I want to have a wedding at a resort and having a reception at another resort where I will be staying at.  You can find out the information from the resort itself.  They will try to charge you arms and legs but it is possible.  There will be more expenses on you with the transportation and other fees (ie day pass) for you and your guests for not staying at the resort.

normally in this situation, guests will all have to pay a day pass to get onto the resort property, and the couple has to pay a higher fee for every non resort guest. So even if there is (for example)  a 1500 dollar wedding package, the couple will have to pay a certain amount per person on top of this. plus transportation.on top of this, most resorts charge more for a private reception (if you dont want to share a space with other people)


it also seems the dreams wedding packages don't include a meal (regardless of whether you stay there) so if you want a reception with a sit down dinner its going to be around 48 dollars pp including open bar (or less for appetiser reception)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
