    Hi ladies,

    I have a few questions for those of you who have been married here:

    1) Did you have to send your information to the resort by e-mail before you left (i.e. birth certificate, passport, apostille document?) I noticed they say on their website that the required information must be sent at least a month in advance, but Gaby didn't ask me to e-mail her any info? We are a little over a month away now.
    2) How did you tip while at the resort (i.e. wedding coordinator, hairstylist, photographer)? I thought I saw this somewhere on the forum, but can't seem to find it.
    3) Do you know if they are any close to having a webcam available at the gazebo? Would be so nice to have for those that aren't able to make it.

    If someone could help me out, I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks so much!

        99% sure it will be on the tower terrace (outdoor). for ladies who have been married there, do you think the terrace is big enough to accommodate tables for 25-30 guests, plus a large enough dancing area?

        i had no idea i had to send the stuff ahead of time! yikes! and does anyone know for sure if i still need an apostille document if i am bringing my original birth certificate with raised seal? my travel agent asked this question for me and got "yes, original birth certificate is ok," but i think claudia may have misunderstood the question (my travel agent wasn't very clear). i recently tried to ask again (in a clearer way), but have gotten no response.

          I've asked her recently about docs. I sent her an email saying this is what i have is this right - she replied yes

          I asked if she needed them before hand and she didn't answer lol Therefore I'm not sending them she can have them when we get there.

          As for apostile on your birth cert I have to have one not sure about US

              I can not believe they are canning yet another WC. This will be my third since I started this process. Maybe they should try having more than 2 people to run the show and then maybe... these poor women will not be overworked. I feel like emailing someone at Dreams and letting them how I feel about their dumb decisions. I am so pissed right now .

                    Im having most of my guests stay at Dreams but my parents and his parents have decided to stay at El Presidente which is also an all inclusive but cheaper.

                    How strict is the hotel with guests who do not stay there?
