So quite a few of our guests are not staying at the resort - including most of my family. I've heard that the resort charges guests anywhere from $55 - $100 for a pass that allows them to get into the resort, get drinks, food, etc.

 

I'm just curious about this, because we are already paying per head for food and drink. Wouldn't this be paying twice, since our guests would be paying for something that we had already paid for in the cost of our wedding? We're having seventy-give guests included in the cost of our wedding; 25 are staying at a different resort and will have to pay a fee to even get into the resort. These guests also don't need day passes; it seems silly to pay $75.00 or whatever to have them show up for a 5PM wedding and enjoy what has already been bought and paid for.

 

I can't wait for our wedding there, but this part seems really strange to me. Does anyone know if this is negotiable? Or how it works?

 

Also, anyone have any description or pictures of Himitsu Beach? That's what I'm thinking site-wise, but I definitely want privacy. No gawking beach goers! :)

 

I've thrown these requests past Claudia but for those of us that have her as a WC.....well, you know the response rate is less than stellar, LOL!

As long as the guests that are not staying at the hotel arrive up to an hour before your ceremony and leave right after the reception, then they don't have to pay for a day pass. This is what Cecilia confirmed for me.

So if your ceremony is at 4 pm, make sure they get there no ealier than 3 and leave right after the end of your set reception time (not the time you decide to finish partying)

Here are the pictures that I have, but they might not be what you're looking for. The sunset is really pretty, but I'm not sure that it's very 'private' either. I'm not sure that any of the sites really are unless your in the ballroom!

So, this is from the comments further back but I talked with Claudia today & she told me that she would exchange the Mexican Trio for 5 more free people at the reception. So, in total thats 15 extra that I managed to exchange for so 35 people in total...now lets just hope I can keep our guest list down to a reasonable number...

I'm also alittle disappointed with the new beach. I love that its so big, but one of the main reasons I chose Dreams was because of the view around the gazebo....I hope the beach isn't packed on our wedding day, but it probably won't be since its in October which is off-season...
