    It is definitely helpful to get the extra people as an exchange. I agree that $52 is reasonable. If I was getting married at home, I would pay much more than that and I wouldn't be dancing the night away on a beautiful beach:)

      Thanks for your help =)
      From what I understand, you don't have to actually sign the contract until you get there. Many of the past brides have said that you'll meet with the WC a few days before the wedding and work out all of the contract details within an hour. I believe you'll tell her then how many people will be there. Cecilia sent me my contract and I'm not going to ask for changes until I get to Mexico. I don't think either of us need the frustrations of communicating by email!

        I got married at Dreams about a month ago...the only things i had set on my contract before going down there was the time and the location. I didn't tell them how many people were coming until the day I got down there...just that i'd have somewhere between 20 and 50. I spent about half an hour with Cecilia (who is amazing by the way) on my arrival date and we got it all figured out. Since I was the only bride on my day, i could even have changed the time and location if i'd wanted to.

            I belive you will have to sign some sort of contract when you send in your deposit, that way you wont lose your date. You can make finalll decisions when you get there. Or in my case, I changed evertyhing.

              that is VERY usefull information....it's been awful trying to communicate through email. I just want to get the date and time down and that's taking forever!!!

                That is really helpful to know. How was your overall experience with your wedding? It's great to hear from someone who was there so recently! Which package did you pick? Congrats =)

                    Nope! We weren't asked to sign anything when we sent the deposit. We'll sign it after we get there and get everything settled.

                      Congrats! Its so exciting to get that part out of the way so you can move on to more exciting parts of planning!! I was asked to sign my contract and once changes are made i will sign it, you can still make any changes you want after you have signed it, i was told it just saves your date. There have been other brides who have had their date or time changed on them, if you have a contract signed saying your date and time they cant move you!!
