    Do you all think this would be possible? Or would Claudia have a problem with it?

    I emailed her like 30 good questions, so as soon as she responds I will post them here for everyone to read!!

    When I asked about using outside vendors, I was told no, but I know girls in the past have used other florists. I feel like everyone gets a different answer.

      I actually have the wedding coordinator that replaced Gaby and she seems to be pretty responsive. She answers questions within a couple days at least. I asked her a couple questions the other day and thought I would post the answers. They might help someone:

      1. What are the options for a rehearsal dinner?
      First about your rehearsal dinner, if you want a private area in any of the restaurants we have, for been private has extra charge for $12 usd + 15%serv +10%tax per person, even for children.

      2. I have 4 children attending the wedding. Can you please tell me what the price per child is?
      The prices for the children are half price from the charge for additional people. Wich is $42 usd +15%serv + 10%tax per adult so is $21 usd +15%serv +10%tax per child.

      3. Do you think a wedding on the beach at the beginning of November is going to be too windy?
      About the wind, November is kind of windy, but you have a good time, 4:30 – 7:30 at the beach will be fine, but we can wait to see how the weather is when you arrive to the hotel.

            also, the dreams delphinus dolphin experience went up $10 ... it's now $159.

            i have the spa prices too, but uploading the attachment for that keeps failing.

            O*M*G.... Ok I found a link for all those dolphin lovers. Half of this cost and children do it for free with a paid adult!

                This is good news; I actually just emailed my TA asking about this. I didn't really want to pay to hire a DJ for ~20 people, but I know we'll need the sound system. Thanks for the good info!

                  I think this was a recent policy change at dreams. I am sure this is due to Dreams not wanting to be responsible or even look bad. If an outside vendor does not do as they promise it reflects poorly on Dreams, but I am sure they have some that they work with. Maybe ask your WC for a list of those that would be acceptable. good luck
