      Just to clear up the whole DJ Mannia thing. I was told you can book DJ Mannia but you have to do it through dreams. You cannot book them on your own. Basically you get to request what DJ you want. They will charge you whatever price they charge for a DJ. So I would not expect to get 30% off. This is likely something they do if booked directly. If I am not mistaken, if you email DJ Mannia he will tell you to contact the wedding coordinator to book him for a dreams wedding.This is why I opted for the sound system and cancelled the DJ. I just thought it was way too much money to entertain 30 guests.

        I contacted DJ Mannia this week and he told me that I had to book through my wedding coordinator. However, I did email Dreams to alert them of his offer and to ask if I would get that discount. Cecilia told me that she would check with him, so I will keep you all posted.

          Did you email DJ Mannia? I emailed him a few days ago but I havent heard back. I also emailed Claudia, but its no surprise that she hasnt gotten back to me yet.

            3. Make up for a Manicure
            4. Cocktail hour for 15 more people for dinner

            I felt like these trades were unfair because the cost of what was originally included in the package was more than the trade they offered me in every case. So I did a cost analysis where I showed the three columns: original cost, the cost of what they gave me for a swap and the difference. Collectively, the trades they offered me were worth over $1k less than the original offerings. I was able to use that to negotiate extending my reception for an extra hour at no additional cost.
            hey thanks for posting your trades! thats awesome that you got what you wanted! I had told gaby the same thing- if i have way more ppl over the 20, i want 15 ppl covered in exchange for cocktail hour but she never really acknowledged that, lol. is ure wc claudia or cecilia? cecilia tried to tell me that i would not get a sound technician with the $180/hour sound system and i got pissed and sent her the emails that gaby had sent to me before she got canned, stating that i would and i told her she couldnt change things ppl already had agreed with gaby. after 3 angry emails from me, she backed off and said ok, lol. so my advice to everyone is to keep your old emails from gaby and show them to cecilia if she tries to change things on u. im glad i did!

              OK all, I have kinda been out of the loop here for a little while. Just wanted to clarify...I had Gaby as a WC. It is my understanding that she no longer works for Dreams. Anyone know why? So did Cecilia take her place? Just checking for clarification! Thanks all!!

                Hmmm. Thats funny because I did the same thing and she only gave me 10 adittional people. I just emailed to inquire about it! I have about 75-80 people coming so every one counts! :-)

                  Hello,

                  I am getting married in December 2009.

                  We are getting the Ultimate Wedding Package which is includes dinner for 20 guests - what happens if you have additional guests? Is it really about $100 Cdn per additional person? Is that negotiatiable?

                  Also, do you have a good photographer to suggest that offers reasonable prices?

                  Thank you for your help!

                    Ladies,

                    Since most of us are brides to be, I believe if we work together, we can negotiate great deals for all of us.

                    I am in the midst of researching great photographers and I have heard of this Swiss photographer who does an amazing job! The resort photographer seems to just take quick and simple photos as he may do so many weddings and has no incentive to do a great job.

                    If you are interested in negotiating group prices, then we can find a photographer and ask for group discounts for xx number of weddings at the Dreams Cancun!

                    We can do the same for the DJ, photographer, flowers, etc if you are interested send me a quick note.

                      I emailed DJ Mannia on Friday and heard back on Sunday. Cecilia is my wedding coordinator (she took over for Gaby) and she has been pretty good about responding. Patience is definitely a virtue with a destination wedding...too bad I am not very patient:)
