Thomas & Jessica’s Dream Wedding

Bride: Jessica
Groom: Thomas
Resort: Dreams Riviera Cancun

Agent: Audrey

 

My husband and I got married at Dreams Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico on January 8th, 2016. My only regret was not staying longer. The resort was a 12 out of 10. From the very beginning we were greeted by friendly faces and amazing customer service. Our room and view were to die for. The food at the restaurants was amazing and honestly I was not expecting it to be that good given it is an all-inclusive.

I got a trial done for my hair and makeup and the lady at the spa did an amazing job. I looked like a queen. I did not use any of the spa services but my guests did and they had nothing but positive things to say. Several went back for multiple massages.

Our wedding coordinator, Claudia, was the very best. We sat down with her for about an hour when we got there to go over last minute details. She took our party favors from us and took care of the rest. We had a large bridal party (12 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen) and she was definitely ready for all the logistics that entailed.

We opted for the semi-private rehearsal dinner and it was great! El Patio, did an amazing job making that night special. The day of the wedding was just perfect, blue skies, mimosa breakfast with my bridesmaids and a wonderful day getting ready at the spa. 11 out of my 12 bridesmaids had spa services done (hair/makeup) for the wedding and all loved how they turned out.

The ceremony and reception was more than I could ever imagine (and you know I was stressing about this for 12 month when we put the deposit down). It was a little stressful at first being told we had to work with the resorts vendors for our DJ and photography but they were 5 –stars. The DJ had a great set up and played all the songs we requested. He even had the music videos playing in the background. Our photographer, Karlien,  was brilliant. She was climbing trees and getting great shots of my husband and I and our entire wedding party.

We had 53 guest in total and they all had a great time. The resort is small and cozy. I really liked this since I didn’t have to walk ten minutes to get to a friend’s room. The pool and beach are clean and perfect. There were times the seaweed would build up on the beach but they were constantly cleaning it.
