Our Dw: Dreams Riviera Cancun 17 Apr 2015

Recommended Posts

HI @@pddcmc omg! you're day looked like it was just a dream. I have been looking for a resort for a while now (getting married in a Catholic church makes it pricey and hard to find a resort). I am looking into the Dreams Rivera Cancun, but it seems like it may be on the pricier side for my guests. May I ask if you got a group rate and what the cost was for your guests? sorry if this has already been mentioned in this thread.

 

Warmly,

CB

@@badgerbride - We  chose DRC because it wasn't overly pricey, but it also wasn't the least expensive resort. We wanted to chose a resort that had all that we wanted, as well as feeling comfortable inviting our guests to a resort that lived up to it's name and why it was a little on the higher side. We also sent out info, save the dates, prices, and invites VERY early so people could start saving and planning to attend. In reality, go with the resort that you and your hubby want because the guests that can make it and really want to, will find a way. You can't please everyone and you shouldn't sacrifice what you guys want.

 

We used a travel agent, so yes, our guests received a group rate.

Also, through our TA, hubby & I received a "refund" check of $3000. It was something like every 5th room, we received $100, so that was nice to look forward to... especially since he and I paid for the entire wedding ourselves. 

 

Hope this helps! Happy planning! & let me know if you have any other ??s

I had about 5.5" cut off and had it dyed a dark brown with dark red undertones that really shine in the sunlight :)

Thank you! Married life is great and we are having a lot of fun! 

 

I was very excited to come back and to share my photos with you guys (and future brides who may come across my planning journal)!

 

Choosing the "right" photographer was the most important part of planning, to me, because eventually, memories fade..I wanted the emotions to live on forever - and Del Sol did exactly that!

 

They are finalizing the rest of the photographs!!! YAAAYYYY!!! I have no idea how to chose which ones we display in the house! LOL

Your welcome :) There was a team of more than 5 artists who individually worked on each image, not to mention the communications and response time we try to offer, so thank you for your patience in the delivery and for trusting our creative vision senorita.  We love your images :)  

 

FUN idea BTW, first look w/out seeing each other and swapping a note...

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
