Real Weddings: Dreams Puerto Vallarta

At Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa, we help couples make their destination wedding dreams come true every single day. So when we got word about Heather and Michael’s fairytale wedding at Dreams Puerto Vallarta, we just had to share their story with you! The two met in college at the University of Southern California, where Michael decided to chat up Heather after a Dodger game.  The rest, as they say, is history!

Heather and Michael celebrated their wedding at the stunning Dreams Puerto Vallarta, where they were joined by 80 of their closest friends and family. The couple even surprised the guests at the reception with a special choreographed dance to Tyrone Wells’ “Running Around in My Dreams.” The entire event was certainly one for the record books—check out some of the photos below of the couple’s special day!

The Best of Dreams Resorts & Spas Weddings featured on Style Me Pretty

Dreams Resorts & Spas offers several beautiful locations for destination beach weddings throughout the Caribbean.  Exquisite settings combined with our Unlimited-Luxury® packages and our all-details-included on-site wedding packages are sure to make your destination weddings at a Dreams Resort the most stress-free, gorgeous experiences possible.

We’ve had many romantic, beautiful and loving affairs at each of our resorts over the years. So many that the popular wedding style blog, Style Me Pretty recently featured a round up of some of the most gorgeous weddings at Dreams Resorts & Spas.

The first of Style Me Pretty’s favorite ceremonies was held at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa and it was truly remarkable.  The resort took care of the every detail, from the flowers to rentals to arranging a dazzling ceremony that took place shortly before sunset.  Everything went smoothly, leaving the bride and groom to enjoy their special day.  Afterward, the couple had a “trash the dress” photo shoot in the irresistible Caribbean sea to complete the wedding experience of their dreams.

The second featured ceremony was held at Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa and was fun from the moment guests arrived – there was a “shoe check” at the entrance! The adorable couple, both teachers who met carpooling to their elementary school, had a beautiful ceremony that truly maximized the natural beauty of the location.  The ceremony featured elegant wooden tables and chairs with simple white and green accents that made this beach wedding unforgettably lovely.

The third favorite wedding was held at Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa and had a few interesting surprises.  The ceremony was held on the beach and the flowers and dresses highlighted the scene with splashes of yellow.  After a romantic ceremony, the couple celebrated with a Greek “Breaking of the Bread” ceremony – the winner of the larger half in a tug-of-loaf is destined to “wear the pants” in the marriage.  In this case, the groom won.  Once night fell, the couple led guests to the beach to light floating lanterns, which was a beautiful surprise, and a fitting conclusion to a wonderfully romantic evening.

The fourth and final of the featured weddings was held at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa, a photographer’s favorite.  The gorgeous couple scheduled a day-after shoot to have a more relaxed day to collect a bunch of memorable photos from all around Tulum, Mexico.  They shared a day taking photographs on the beach, in local shops, at a traditional church and in a cenote filled with fish. The bride couldn’t resist trashing the dress once she saw the crystal clear water.  These wedding shots are beautiful –what an unforgettable day!

Wedding Wednesday: Dreams Riviera Cancun Featured on Style Me Pretty!

As we always say, we love hosting weddings at Dreams Resorts & Spas!  A recent wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa was particularly beautiful – it was even featured on Style Me Pretty, the ultimate wedding blog.  The bride and groom laced romantic symbolism throughout the entire ceremony, which made it a very touching experience.  “Wedding colors were chosen based on the colors found inside of a conch. Light peach, pinks, nudes and crème. We kept our ceremony décor simple and clean to keep the focus on the beauty of beach,” said the bride, Betty.

The couple also incorporated black and red sand into their wedding ceremony that they collected from beaches they visited during their engagement trip to Oia, Santorini in Greece. “Once we decided to have our wedding in Mexico, it became important for us that we used the sand from our engagement destination for the sand ceremony at our wedding destination,” explained Betty.

The way they emphasized the natural beauty of their wedding location and tied the ceremony to their romantic past made this a truly beautiful wedding.  Congratulations, Betty and Nelson!

Wedding Wednesday: Dreams Cancun Hosts a Traditional Sikh Wedding

Dreams Resorts & Spas hosts hundreds of weddings every year.  While most are traditional beach weddings, from time to time, we have the honor to host a unique ceremony that brings all kinds of cultures together at our resorts.  We recently hosted a traditional Sikh wedding at Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa.

Founded more than 500 years ago, the Sikh religion today has a following of more than 20 million people worldwide and is ranked as the world’s 5th largest religion. The recent Sikh wedding at Dreams Cancun was a beautiful ceremony lasting more than three days long.  The day before the wedding, the bride’s parents fed their daughter traditional foods and painted her hands with henna.  All of the guests were given a bracelet that they should keep on until it comes off by itself thus giving years of happiness to the couple.
