Guess Dreams will have to have two photogs and videogs for June 13. Gotta tell ya, I'm a little peeved with her lack of foresight on this one, and I, for one am not paying extra for it!
    I am all about doing whatever will stress me out the least!!! LOL!! I am not opposed to moving the time up slightly. Hey its all good as long as my DJ, photographer and videographer are all booked properly. Hey if it does get scewed up, at least I have someone who will team up with me to go all "bridezilla" on them!!!!

    I have Jill (TA) working on it too. I wil let you know onceI hear something...

      I dont know about Dreams but i went to a wedding in Punta Cana DR last year & well last minute everyone was doing so much running around there was no one to fill in as witness's. To make a long story short they grabbed someone in their bathing suits that was a guest at the hotel to do it. It wasnt a big deal I mean a little weird but no biggie. Not sure if that helps since its a totally different country but thought I'd throw that in there..lol

        I think my TA told me the hotel would provide witnesses at $10 per witness. The price may have changed, but seems reasonable to me

                What if I don’t have a witness?

                If you do not have witnesses available, these will be provided by the resort at no additional cost.


                This is what I got right off the Dreams Resort website under frequently asked questions - not sure if it is accurate . . . .

                    I think you should contact her asap.

                    I emailed her, and she said she'll not be available for my date (Aug. 1) because she will be on vacation.

                      Really?
                      I e-mailed her on Tuesday night and So far I haven't heard anything back :-( I check times a day!! I know that It's only 5 months away, so there is a chance she may not even have my date available, but I really keep hoping she does :-)
                      Thanks for the Heads up!!!
