Hi fellow 2014 DRC brides

 

I think I could be the first 2014 Bride.  My wedding is just 29 days away :0)

 

We are getting married on 6 January 2014 which is a festival day in Mexico and the day they exchange Christmas Gifts, I am getting the best gift of all my lovely husband to be Mike. Our wedding is very small and intimate.  My son who is 13 is giving me away, my MOH is my 20 year old daughter and my step sons aged 16 and 22 are best men, the other bridesmaid is the girlfriend of my step son. That is all of us just 7.

 

We booked our wedding after a site visit to DRC last June 2013 when we went to Mexico to get engaged at Excellence Playa Mujeres. We have 2 children who are under 18 so we needed a family resort and it was just perfect.

 

We fly out on the 28th of December for 14 nights,

 

 

Our wedding is on North Beach at 3.30pm it is a legal wedding.

 

We are having a family sand ceremony and our children are pouring sand with us as they are becoming a new family, we decided to do this to Sister Sledge song "We are Family" :)

 

 

We are having cocktails in the beach bar and then we have booked the wine cellar for a private dinner at 6pm

 

I have got a beautiful Sassi Holford gown which is a soft fishtail shape in ivory silk with floaty lace that has lots of tiny pearl and diamond details, a simple pearl and diamond side tiara and Jimmy Choo glitter fabric shoes.(barefoot for the ceremony)

 

My girls are wearing pale champagne pink Talbot Runhoff cocktail dresses and glitter fabric sandals

 

My Groom has a navy blue Boss suit with white shirt with navy detail on the collar, brown leather belt and brown leather flipflops

 

Our boys have the same as the groom minus the jacket

 

We are having all white and green flowers on the gazebo and Mexican Alcatraz Lillies for our wedding flowers

 

We are using Adventure for our photographs

 

I cant wait now its so close, communication has been a bit hit and miss with my WC Ayahamint but I have to say that this last few weeks she has really come through and we have our meeting with her on the 2nd of January.

 

So I wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year for 2014 which is a very special year for us all.  Good luck with your weddings girls xxx

 

Lou

Hi ladies! I'm glad this thread was created. Thanks, Cecile!  Our wedding date is set for August 16th! I am still trying to put everything together. It seems with the holidays I slowed down, but come the new year, I will be back in full force. LOL...

Question...in regards to the promo incentives for Dreams Riviera...does anyone know if they grandfather you in for new incentives posted?  For example, they're now offering complimentary cocktail reception for up to 50 people if you book your destination wedding by February, 2014.  We actually added this expense to our budget, but I visited the site a few days ago and noticed the incentive.  We officially booked our wedding there in September, 2013.  Wondering if we'll be able to take advantage of this?

Hi. ladies!!!  June 21, 2014 here!!!  I'm still getting the hang of this!  How far along in the planning are you ladies?

 

 


I ordered our maracas and canvas oot bags yesterday =) I want to be involved in all the little details of the wedding so I ordered the maracas plain and me and my maids are going to paint them with a stencil. We are also going to iron on my design for the oot bags...excited!!  I found the best deal at these two sites if ya'll want! I think my next decision will be the videographer!! Has anyone booked theirs yet?

I booked the photographer, but not the videographer.  I hope they are they same!  LOL

I had my travel agent look into it for us and we got it!!  Just make sure you get it in writing (email) in case anything goes wrong.

Hello ladies!  First off I am so incredibly thankful for these threads.  I have learned so much from them!  We are getting married on May 10, 2014 at DRC and I am getting so excited!!  There are so many things that I feel like I don't have done but I guess that they will all work out!  We have about 48 people that are coming...should be an amazing time!  I am a little mixed up on what time to make my hair appointment for the trial run and the day of.  Any suggestions? 

Congrats all!

Cheers!

Ali

Just email your wedding planner she can help you ! And then contact the spa yourself to book the times ! Who's your wedding planner?

Newly engaged! And heading out there in December to get some information and check DRC. So far I'm sold and would love to have our wedding here. How did you ladies set the date? Any one I can contact? Please let me now where I can start! Any information would be helpful. Thanks. wink.gif

I've been MIA with planning but after glancing at my planner, I've realized I gotta get moving on planning this wedding!! Good luck to everyone out there.

 

My next step is to book photographer and videographer. Adventure is through the resort right? So we don't need to pay vendor fees? I found a pretty cool company in Mexico but it would have been $5,000 for both video & pictures. Just sounds too ridiculous to cost almost as much as our whole wedding.  :(

I got the Platinum Package? Or whichever is the highest one.. and I think the cocktail reception is complimentary up to 20 people. I'll have to look into that as well! Thanks for the tip tkennerson!!
