Yep it came from me I had a huge fight about it with my WC claudia and posted it lol

Here's the email - don't think you can get it any clearer

Claudia

I really need the answers to these questions, I love your hotel and I do want my wedding there, but as I mentioned before the photograph position is worrying me to the point where I am re-considering my venue.

1. On the package on the Dreams website, when I originally asked for information in January, it was 50 photographs in the Ultimate Wedding Package and that was still the position when I sent you the Q&A in February and even today it still says 50 photographs. It does not say ceremony only on there anywhere. Why has that now changed to ceremony only? Other people that have booked at the same time and the same package have been advised that it is for pictures after the ceremony and some on the beach and around the hotel. Why is mine different when we are paying the same price?

the photographer service is just for @ 40 minutes.

Why is Claudia so vague about things i sent her an email and asked for some ideas about group activities for everyone attending the wedding


6. Do you have any ideas, for a group activity. We want to plan an event for all of our guests that is fun for all ages, and not overly expensive. Any ideas??

the hotel offers activities during the day.

WTF.... Why are they so vague?

Wow! Well I dont know how to respond to be honest with you. I mean what Daniela told me seemed reasonable but the way Claudia responded to you doesnt. I mean 40 minutes is like the ceremony and a few quick group shots. I wish I had an answer. I would love to say ask Juan but the emails I had always sent him he never responded to.

Snap lol at the min i'm in the middle of exams so trying not to stress too much lol however!! come sat when they are all over i've already told FI we ARE HAVING a discussion about this whole thing.

The TA is shite and won't help me so if it means I have to go above Claudia's head I am because 40 frigging mins is no fecking good to me !! You'll notice she didn't answer why my contract was different lol

At the min flights are about £500 to cancun from here and if I had the cash I'd fly over and smack her up and down the fecking strip until I got my bloody answer lol

And as for Juan, nope he doesn't answer my emails either!! Way to run a business!! lol

Sorry i'm stressed out about exams lmao pokestick.gif

SHE IS FECKING SHITE!!!!! and hasn't got a clue how to handle a simple question wtf.gifwtf.gif

 

 

Everytime I ask her a direct question she skips around the answer. Here is how Our last email went.

 

Q: is there a corcakge fee for wine?

 

A; Yes there is corckage fee.

 

Q: What is the corckage fee

 

A: Yes there is a corckage fee

 

Q: GREAT! What is the corckage fee?

 

A: Yes there is a corckage fee.

 

Wholly crap if I could reach through the computer and shake her I would. I understand she is busy My TA says she gets like 400 emails a day, but I bet that is because of convo's like the one above.

 

Sooo.... does anyone know what the corckage fee is?

I sent an email to the group excursions desk at Dreams and they sent me a listing of all the group tours they had to offer. The person who responded said that if I needed pricing for the excursions to email them again. I have attached the listing he sent me. Their email is dreamscun@amstarmexico.com.

As for hotel sponsored group activities, I am wondering is you could email the concierge and they might be able to provide you with a listing of activities. Their email is concierge@dreamscancun.com.mx.

I do agree that both Daniella and Claudia can be pretty vague with their answers but it makes me wonder if they are understanding what they are being asked. I dont know if there is a language barrier there. Just my two cents :)

I was not aware that there was a corkage fee of any sort. Daniella never mentioned it to me.

No I think you're right,which is why after that email I keep my questions really short and to the point, eg why do we only have a photographer for 40 mins! still don't get a rely and that was the end of April lol

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
