    Question? Do we have to get an OK from the WC for our photographer of choice? Or can we do what we want but just purchase a day pass??

    No daypass fee is required.

      i just paid $110 for my 2 photographers. that said, i think i might have been able to get away with paying nothing. DH's brother and his gf decided last minute to fly down a day early and just see how much the extra day would be. when they were told something ridiculous like $400, they said screw that and just came in with the rest of the family, used the resort and restaurants all day, and crashed in our suite that night. the next day they went and checked in like they weren't already there a whole day, lol. all anyone ever asks for at restaurants is your room number (you could give them anyone's room). i was still afraid they'd ask for a pass for the photographers because they were schlepping equipment. not to mention mine don't actually have their mexican work visas yet, so i didn't want to draw any unnecessary attention to them. they were never given any actual passes (just gave their names at the desk), but they were stopped and questioned once or twice inside the resort.

        WOW thats great to know at this point I haven't really told her anything about my photographer so i will keep my trap shut as long as i can..lol I also have a friend flying in at midnight a few days prior and she is a BDW bride that just got married 2 weeks ago ( I dont know how she is winging this trip after her wedding..lol) anyways i feel bad having her pay for a night when she is getting to the hotel at midnight.. I told her she could stay in my room that night and just check in like normal the next morning... Any suggestions?? lol Im glad I am trying to get all the tricks out of you past brides..lol Thanks ladies..

            She knew about my photographer and I didn't have to buy a day pass for him. I just had to pay for his dinner. He just went to security and got a pass from them to wear around his neck.

              hey gals..I haven't really been participating on the forum much-just reading all you've said as I thought about having my wedding at Dreams. But now, it's official-just sent my deposit and contract. Wedding date is April 25, 2010.

              I was actually able to negotiate something about the menu options...I am including a menu card and a steak or salmon option on our RSVP cards and have to let Cecilia know 2 weeks prior to the wedding how many of each main course we need...not sure if that helps anyone?
              __________________________________________________ _____________________

              Cecilia's exact response:

              Dear Lily:

              You can send the choices to your attendants and they can choose, I do not really use to do this, but we are going to make an exception, just please once you send me the elections, will be no changes, just at least if the number of people changes up or down.
              We're married!

                  Hi mummergirl

                  I've just looked at your pics on the photographers webpage and they are amazing. I definitely need to get the ball rolling and pick a date.

                    OMG Lisa that is too funny. I had one of my BMs stay at Krystal and they were at Dreams all week. They crashed in my room, then in other peoples rooms all week. They didnt even use their hotel. They ate at Dreams, Drank at Dreams and used their pool. All they had to do was say one of our room numbers and they were in. hahah Too Funny. All they would do is go to their room to change at night. hahah

                    Claudia knew about my photographer and didnt bother to charge me a visitor fee.

                    How were your drinks??

                      my photographers actually said to me, "did you end up paying a fee for us? 'cause i swear, we both got the feeling we could have just walked right in!" LOL. i felt stupid for actually paying.

                      the drinks were good ... we ordered doubles whenever we wanted to actually get a buzz. and you were right, whatever their house vodka is, it tastes like lighter fluid! my BIL got kamikaze shots for everyone without asking for any specific liquor and they were disgusting! there were no coco locos again. we tried to have them make the drink without the actual coconut but because they replaced the coconut "milk" with coconut rum, the drink was just too strong and gross. we loved mango margaritas or mango-tangos, and also dirty monkeys. some days we sat at the swimup bar all day and just did every drink on their menu board, lol!
