  1. I had the same problem with seaside but i printed all my emails and gave it to Lorena and refused to pay anything additional since I booked it over a year ago and she didn't charge me but they are now charging everyone for seaside girll... just show her your emails
  2. No we just split it between us... and i kept it in an envelope close to me... my credit card was gonna charge me a service fee of $600 or more just to pay and i was scared the hotel may over charge me and i didn't want to deal with any confusions... it worked out perfect!
  3. HI everyone here is a short review,,,, first let me say that everyone should really try their best to enjoy their wedding week as it flies by so quick... Arrival- as soon as we arrived we were greeted and all of our luggage was taken for us to the preferred club and we checked in right away and upgraded our room... it was quick and easy!! all of our guests were also greeted with champagne and water at the front and assisted with check in... we received a letter from Lorena right when we checked in to go meet in her office at 6:30 pm... Meeting with Lorena- it was only an hour... she had everything documented on our file... we just reviewed everything and our DJ came by to confirm our songs and we gave Lorena the ceremony songs on a CD... we confirmed all the flower dinner and centerpieces and decorations then she gave us a receipt for it and we payed at the front lobby...we decided to pay everything cash to avoid credit card charges and confusions. Day before the wedding- I didn't reserve for a rehearsal dinner as i had 50 guests but we all planned to meet in the lobby and there is a live band that plays... we basically requested songs socialized and had a few beverages and danced in the lobby.it worked out perfect ... we took a lot of pictures and before this every group did their own dinner... Wedding day- They gave my husband his own room the night before so I woke up and got ready for the spa... there were 6 of us getting our hair done,,, when we arrived they said they wanted to charge everyone an extra $20 because our hair was damp... I have curly hair therefore its not easy to dry it myself unless I style it... my hair and makeup was done by 1300... I asked Lorena to give me the presidential suite for pics therefore me and my bridesmaids met there to get ready together... we ordered a bottle of champagne and some fruits... Lorena came to check up on me... my photographer Elina who was amazing and Edurado from Mike Cantarell films both showed up at 1430... my ceremony started at 330pm at the Gazebo and my flowers also arrived to my room... Ceremony- it was a beautiful day... walked down and my songs were all perfect... everything went smooth,... everyone met on the beach for a group photo then they went to the beach bar where the mariachi band came to play for our guests while we took more photos with our bridal party... I did leave my hair down therefore it was a bit messy by this point due to the wind and sun... I went back to the spa and did my hair again and decided to put it up for night... then Elina took photos of us all around the hotel. Reception- My reception was at seaside grill... it was my favorite location... I saw many weddings but the setup at seaside was the best in my opinion.... Lorena changed the chairs for us and I had taken some candles and other decorations which they arranged... it looked amazing... the food was the Caribbean buffet and all of our guests loved it... they screwed up on my cake... I wanted the seashell cake but they gave me ones with flowers which i never asked for... but it was fine. our Dj was George and he was amazing... he did everything very well and it was a blast... whatever we requested he had and all of our guests were dancing all night... Overall the resort was amazing... the service was great... The only down point was they broke some of my decorations after the reception when they were cleaning... Also two days after my wedding there was a rain storm which was horrible and i felt bad for the bride that day... her centerpieces were flying in the ocean... so i got lucky with weather.....The restaurants are great... I loved eating at Oceana during the day and and the french and Italian were my two favorites... I definitely recommend them. The room service is very slow at nights... we ordered once but fell asleep because they took so long... I haven't received any of my photos yet... the overall experience was great and It was the best week of my life!
  4. I just got back from my wedding at Dreams Riviera!!! its so beautiful there .... i cant believe how fast it went by... i will post a review shortly...
  5. . Hi Lindsey ! I was watching it without sound but urs looks more stable a s better camera and the other link seems a bit different and shaky ! I think it may be the different camera men ! So you had the cinema style ? HowmAny camera men did you have ? I hope my style is like yours also
  6. Hi Emily... Do you know if the hotel will allow you to substitute the mariachi band with the saxephone player?? im pretty sure they dont but just double checking lol I wish they would
  7. Why is the wedding highlight so shaky? I have hired him for 8 hour film package but the none of the viedeos on his website look like that... now I'm worried
  8. wow that looks beautiful....howmuch did they charge you for the gazebo decoration like that??? i love ittttt
  9. i know I really am... I'm so nervous but from the beginning they advised that it wont be a problem... and my travel agent emailed them to get my wedding schedule with everything confirmed on there... most people say they meet with wedding planner once and everything goes into place so hopefully that will happen for mine too!... fingers crossed
  10. My wedding is on April 30th and i leave on the 28th... I find it ridiculous how expensive the DJ is and if they charge an additions 15% over the 11% tax plus 300 an hour.... that's just a rip off but i guess we have no choice....
  11. does anyone know if the 2999 for ultimate pkg is going to have an additions 15% service charge and 11% tax on it??? and does 300 per hour for dj and add photo packages have these additional charges on it? I'm trying to calculate the charges in total....
  12. HI ladies.... I leave in 11 days... im so nervous about forgetting things !!! I really hope they have everything ready at the resort... any advice or tips? were going to pay the wedding charges on a credit card... I'm hoping they don't make a mistake or anything on the charges...
