    Could the Brides of Dreams Resorts please tell me what they are getting from Dreams for booking several-(a lot) rooms at the resort? I am talking about extras. Maggie hasn't blocked any rooms because she didn't know when and how long her guests might want to stay. She is having her rehearsal dinner there and has booked about 8 rooms so far. The wedding is in January. She wants to ask her TA to ask for some extras, but wanted me to ask you folks first, what you have negotiated.
    Thanks, ladiies!
    For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

      WC told me that if we book 30 rooms then we get an upgrade, if we have 50 rooms then they can give us 3 nights/ 4 days of free vacation on our next visit. I'm sure all of these are negotiable.

      I think the way you have to approach the negotiation is to ask for something that matters to you. Also, you are entitled to the Eternity Honeymoon package if you are staying at a Honeymoon suite of higher category for 7 nights or have 5 rooms staying for 3 nights (from your guests).

      Goodluck!

          My TA was able to negotiate a discounted rate, in addition to an upgrade to the honeymoon suite for Jeff & I.

                    Thank you all. This gives us more to go on. Since we aren't having the wedding there, just the rehersal, I wasn't certain if we had any bargaining power. More people are booking their rooms now as we are getting closer to the date, so soon it will be time to do some negotiating. I am not sure what she is asking for, but this info will certainly help her alot.
                    You ladies are a wealth of information!
