@smileitseb~2 long table sounds beautiful. Where is your reception? We are in the ballroom. I thought about long tables after my bridal shower this past Sunday, but I'm not sure how that would look in the Ballroom with sooooooo much space. I'm scared that it will be hot as hades outside when we are down there. You are less than 30 days away. Have you started packing? I'm getting nervous even thinking about it.

@@landryfrost We upgraded to the Seaside Grille for our reception! Cocktail hour on the pool terrace and ceremony at the gazebo. Gazebo vs beach are entirely different. The gazebo is not private (it's next to the pool), and not in the sand. The beach is....the beach! haha so it's up to you and your fiance's preferences! Personally, we wanted the gazebo for the look of it and my fiance wants to wear nice shoes (hence no sand). I don't mind the people watching, I think it adds to the fun :-)

@@Beaner82 I'm just a couple weeks after you!! Feb 23 :-) We're not doing anything on wedding day on the beach, but we may do the welcome reception there the night before!

Hello!  I am planning my wedding at Dreams - September 6, 2015.  I am very excited!  Since your wedding recently passed, can you tell me how many guests attended your wedding and what it felt like to have your wedding at the gazebo? I was a little worried that the gazebo is too exposed to the public. My fiance and I were watching some youtube videos of other couples and some looked a little weird with tons of people watching on the side lines with bikinis.  We are considering the beach as an alternative ceremony location, but do not plan to change anything until we arrive a few days before the wedding. Like you hubbie, we both plan to wear some nice shoes and I don't think my 4 inch heels will cut it in the sand.

Hey girls!

 

I must say that I am sooo happy I found this blog! I stayed up the past 2 nights reviewing a few threads and realized many of them were helpful but originated in pre-2014..eek.  But then I found your thread specific for 2015 brides!!!  I am so excited for you all! My wedding will be the day before Labor Day - September 6.  I must say, I found this blog because my fiance and i saw a few youtube videos with a few weddings at DRC and we were a bit disappointed. The videos showed that the gazebo is in the mix and that was the main feature we were sold on! It looks like there is no element of privacy which makes us nervous...Folks standing around in bikinis etc is freaking us out.Our wedding consultant / travel agent is trying to calm us down but we are seriously contemplating moving the ceremony to the north beach (but then the wedding party won't be able to wear our fun shoes).

 

Does anyone else have concerns with privacy? Our cocktail hour will be on the beach and our reception is supposed to be on the pool terrace - we are in the process of trying to get it changed to the pool deck.  

 

In addition, how many guests are you all expecting? We recently had 80 people submit their deposits by our pre-established deadline.

@@phdtck1 Hey girl! welcome to our forum!!! :)

 

I went back and forth about the gazebo as well. It's really the reason I chose DRC because I never wanted to get married on sand, always overlooking the beach bc I want me and my fiance to wear shoes! I've talked to several brides and looked at endless videos and you're right, you will most likely draw an audience. However, most ppl say everyone is respectful and they did not notice them during their ceremony, aka not a distraction. Also if you decide to have it at the gazebo, tell your photographer and videographer to try to get shots without those ppl! we are having it at the gazebo and I think it will be fine :)

 

I'm getting married in 15 days and we are having 58 guests. Amazing that you have 80 people! and they already submitted their deposits, thats awesome. 

 

Also, look up the Cancun Brides and Cancun and Riviera Maya Brides groups on Facebook....lots of DRC brides on there, and we share info everyday!

 

Also, I was originally signed up for the Pool Terrace but am so glad I changed it to the Pool Deck, it seems MUCH better!

 

p.s. when asking specific brides questions, it is good to mention their @ name so they get a notification, otherwise they may miss it!

    • 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?
