Hello DRC brides!! This forum is so helpful!

 

 We just booked Sunday, August 16, 2015. We are planning to have our ceremony at the Gazebo. We are still undecided as to where to have the reception. We are thinking maybe the ballroom because it is air conditioned. Anyone thinking about having their reception in the ballroom? Also, I am very particular about my hair and makeup. Is anyone going to have a hair and makeup trial at the spa?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hello Everyone!:)

I will be getting married at Dreams on March 6th 2015. The ceremony will be at the gazebo and the reception on the beach. It's so great to read what you all have been discussing! It's helped with a lot of questions I have.

 

Anyone bringing there own decorations? We are choosing to have the long tables for the reception and love the lanterns in between small centerpieces. I'm not sure if to buy them cheaper online and take them or see if they have them there. Is anyone also buying the maracas there? Thanks for the help:)

Hey!! We are getting married on May 18th,2015 at DRC.......so excited! I just have a question about cocktail hour and reception. Right now I have both scheduled at different locations but I am wondering if it would be better to have them both at the same location?? Let me know what you all are doing and what you would recommend?

My fiancé and I are working with destinationweddings.com - so far so good! We just booked Sunday, August 16, 2015. We are planning to have our ceremony at the Gazebo. We are still undecided as to where to have the reception. We are thinking maybe the ballroom because it is air conditioned. Anyone thinking about having their reception in the ballroom?

Hey girl! I'm not having my reception inside, but for hair/makeup, I wanted the best. So I booked Styling Trio. When we went for a site visit in September, we went to Playa to visit their salon and my mom had a hair trial done. WOW. My mom has extremely curly/humidity-hating hair, and it was absolutely gorgeous and stayed until the next day! They are pricy, but it's the one day you have to look your best, so who care?! :-) Good luck!

We are bringing a lot of stuff. We are doing the long tables/lanterns for the welcome dinner the night before. At $25/piece they're expensive to rent directly from DRC, but I feel that it might be more of a hastle to bring them to Mexico/risk breaking on the plane..

 

For maracas, we got ours from http://www.maracasmexico.com/. They were recommended by Dreams and work frequently with them. Also, they ship directly to the hotel as they are located in Puerto Vallarta, I believe. We ordered 45 and got them personalized. I would order them soon though, they told me Feb/March is their busiest months and they want orders 2-3 months in advance! Your wedding is a couple weeks after mine!

Hey! I am having my 3 events in relatively the same area...ceremony on the right at the gazebo, the cocktail hour in the middle at the pool terrace, and reception on the left in the Seaside Grille. I think it's nice to switch things up, but it might depend on where everything is. If cocktails are at the Jacuzzi, your guests will have to walk a ways to get to the beach if you reception is there. So you don't want your guests to be all over the place!

@@fhk815 It was great! We met with our wedding planner (Claudia Solis) for several hours. She went over everything in detail and we did a tasting of the platinum menu (we upgraded from the gold that is included in the ultimate wedding package). She even had a "Welcome Natalie and William" sign for us hanging in the wedding office. I have complete faith in her and know that everything will be perfect! If you have any Qs, let me know!
