Help! Dreams Riviera Vs Moon Palace Vs Now Jade

Recommended Posts

New here!


Planning for a January 2018 wedding in Riviera Maya with 60-80 guests. Dreams, Moon Palace and NOW Jade seem to be the best fits. 


Wondering if anyone has had a wedding comparable to our size at any of these resorts and might have some pros and cons?


Any help is appreciated!

Hi There to ep643! Welcome! I am TA Wendy, and I would be happy to give you some input on all of the resorts you are considering.. I work frequently with wedding groups at each of these properties, and each one is a very good choice for its own unique set of reasons.. but you wont go wrong with any of these!


Of the three, Moon Palace is of course the largest.. lots to do with something for everyone, MANY beautiful wedding venues, chapels beach, terrace, gazebo, you name it and they can offer it! You can even be delivered to your wedding in a horse and carriage here! Plus Palace resorts has a wonderful wedding department that will work with you on all your choices for the wedding and reception, and guests get a nice bonus in having the resort credits that Palace offers.. starting with $500 per room for a 3 night stay and up from there. Moon Palace is easy in/out from the airport, and all your guests will stay occupied and busy with everything the resort has to offer.


I am not sure which of the Dreams resorts in Cancun/Riviera Maya you are referring to, but Dreams Riviera Maya is a great choice as it also is easy to get to, has great wedding locations, (I love their sort of Tahatian looking Gazebo), and is sort of a "Sweet spot" in pricing.. the resort is family friendly, and all the AM Resorts properties offer a very generous amenities package for you as the Bride and Groom. Also worth a mention is the BRAND new Dreams Playa Mujeres property that is just opening shortly. It is in a very up and coming part of the Cancun area, and has a great beach, plus is right next to Secrets Playa Mujeres and adult guests may choose to go over to Secrets and eat at the restaurants there as well as the ones at Dreams. It also have some very good deals right now as they take pre - opening bookings for future dates, so you are in a perfect time to get some really great prices here.


For Now Jade, I would say that there is a lot to like about this resort. Also part of the AM Resorts group of properties, the Now Jade is quite affordable and has many of the pluses that others in the AM Resorts family of resorts offers such as the 3G promo of amenities for Bride and Groom where you can begin to earn comp room nights and upgrades for your 6th room booked. Now Jade is modern in feel and I love their Jewel Tone color scheme used throughout the property. This would certainly be the lowest priced of the resorts you are considering, and you do get a very good value for your money here.

AM Resorts properties also offer Resort Credits for your guests which they can use for tours, spa and other on site options.


I hope this information helps a bit! At Wright Travel we also have some unique promos and specials just for the couples we work with only! If I can answer any of your questions, or request group rates for you at these or any other of the resorts you may be considering, please contact me and I would love to work with you!

@@ep643  Congrats and welcome! TA Wendy has given you some great information for sure! The other thing is you can do is look through the site. There is a ton of information here along with multiple reviews from brides that have had their weddings at the resorts you're considering.


I'd suggest doing a search up top. Just type in the resort and you'll get a bunch of threads that you can read through. That's the one thing with this site - it's so worth taking time to read through what's here. I will say that Moon Palace is a very popular venue and they have the horse and carriage! Something many brides love and of course it makes for gorgeous photos!

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
