@@Carlicardenas - it's Karisma. We are looking at Generations Riviera Maya/El Dorado Royale and Azul Sensatori.  From the looks of things, I'll be a January bride because there is a $160 price difference for guests staying 3 nights. :( 


@@lalalana - many thanks! I work in NYC and live a ferry ride away.

Hi Brides!

 

I'm also planning on visiting Cancun/Playa del Carmen area end of March. I've decided to visit these sites: Sandos Cancun, Riu Palace Riviera Maya, The Royal Playa del Carmen, The Royal Cancun. I'm not sure if I want to visit Riu Palace Riviera Maya because of the fact that they do not have a reception area outdoors that can accommodate more than 50 people.

 

I am also wanting information about Dreams Riviera Cancun. I wanted a resort close to a Catholic church for my ceremony. Does anyone know if there's a church nearby Dreams?

@@Ems85 I'm planning to do my wedding at Moon Palace in April 2015. How did you find the wedding coordinators, and the communication with them? Did you use the photographers on the resort?

Hi lovelies! Just returned from my site visits! Was down for 5 days with our "home base" at Dreams Riviera Cancun. We also visited Barcelo Maya Palace and Riu Palace Riviera Maya. Any Qs let me know and I will do my best to answer or I can give my opinions about the resorts.

The packages at Moon do offer more, I think, but we chose Dreams Riviera Cancun because Moon was WAY too big for us and my family loves the beach and Moon's beach was unswimmable. For wedding ceremony you can do the beach (North or South beach, pretty private compared to other beach locations at other resorts) or the Gazebo which is next to the pool, but they push the pool chairs away from the ceremony site and everyone was very respecful from the two weddings we saw there. I saw pics from a wedding there where they put up dividers between the pool and gazebo (not sure if they still offer this as this was in 2009). In the brochure, they said you could also have the ceremony on the lobby stairs which looked beautiful but during the tour they didn't mention it, not sure if it's still available.

 

We're going with the Ultimate package. It covers 20 people and everyone else is extra depending on which menu you choose. Ultimate package includes the gold menu, you can upgrade to platinum if you wish. Dinner can be buffet or plated. Cocktail hour and reception can be anywhere you want. Pool deck (next to sand) or pool terrace (next to pool), around one of the jacuzzis, by the spa, restaurants (extra fee depending on which restaurant), and beach. Decor is 100% customizable. You can give them pics and they will create it for you within your budget or quote you if you want to upgrade.

 

They have 2 weddings a day max. Tables can be anything you want (square, circle, rectangle, set up whichever you want) as well as colors. There are so many options it's crazy.

 

If you (or anyone!) wants the latest price list, send me your email and I'll forward it! I do have pics but not sure how to upload them...do I have to post them to like a blog first??

Did they mention the change of ownership to the Hyatt and is this a concern for Dreams?

No they didn't. From this forum it seems that only Dreams Cancun is changing and none of the people I talked to at the resort gave any indication that this location was at risk. I will make sure to ask though next time I talk to them.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
