We are having so many more people than expected coming to our wedding that we cannot afford a different photog and are using the resort photographer despite anyone I know of actually using them. I hope it goes well!

I know it is frustrating and easier said than done, but once you have a date arranged with them and a contract in the works, you're good.
The contracts are not final until they meet with you when you are there.
It is good to have most of it decided and now they have all the options on their website, so you can make most decisions.
The other thing I did was look carefully at previous DC brides pictures to be sure to ask for certain things.

This may not be what you want to hear, it was advice I also received...but know that about a month before your wedding date you will receive quick turnarounds on your emails.
They have so many events each week I can understand how weddings that are far out don't take priority.

When I met with Claudia I realized I was worried about nothing.
She had a folder full of our correspondence and pictures I sent.
She made suggestions when I told her my ideas and she is the expert.

So, don't worry, it will be perfect!

Nothing that I can remember...
I knew I was going to have to pay more for BM flowers and table centerpieces, but didn't know how much since I wanted to discuss some pictures I sent with her.

I had worked out the cake over email. Similar to one in the ppt she sent, just smaller, so I knew the cost.

If I remember anything, I will post.

I think we handed out more tips than we expected, because we were so pleased :) We know it was included, but we wanted to give them more.
We had 5 waiters and 2 bartenders, Claudia, the sound guy, didn't see the mariachi trio (no tip - oops).

Hi Paula, Hope you are better now ? I am under the impression that untill a deposit of 50% is given for the package nothing including the prices are fixed ? Did you pay a deposit of 50% ? If so how did you do this if the contract wasn't fanalised untill you got there? Did you still sign the contract but change the odd things afterwards ? Thanx again x

My wedding date is July 19, 2009 and I am so excited! I just received my contract from Claudia today....yippeee! I havent though about all of the details yet since I have so much time. I will post again once I have any good info. Claudia did send me a price list...I'm not sure if it is on their website. If not, does anyone want it?
When you say contract what do you mean by that? I have only received the Q&A and emailed back and forth with questions and received some answers. Can anyone help on this??

Hey Jenn, She should send you a contract with everything listed eg - whats included in your package and what extras you are having to pay for with an area for signitures for both yourself and Dreams, you may need to ask her about this ?

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
