    So far, I know I don't need the photog, don't want the mexican trio, and would love to swap cocktail hour for more guests at dinner. I would like to get ceremony music out of the deal too. I'm so jealous! From what I see, Claudia is not fast at responding, and according to what people have said, Claudia does not do trades but Cecilia does. When we come to this mountain, I wonder if someone could share some emails with us newbs so we can show proof of trades in the past. I know one girl that PMed me said she would. You guys are awesome! Sigh.... only 100+ posts until I can open attachments! Maybe I'll welcome more ppl...lol!

      I was wondering about all that trading business too but it looks like some of you guys have been able to make a deal!! Do you girls know if there is an outside vendor fee??

        Hello everyone, my fiancee and I are thinking of getting married in Mexico this Dec. 31st 2010 at Dreams Cancun. I would like to get some advice on what to do first as I have no clue how to plan this destination wedding.

          peterpan: you'll definately be able to trade extra people for the cocktail hour, that's a resort thing in general. I'm sure the photog wont be an issue either bc from posts on here, that is ALWAYS exchanged for something.

          KB: There is an outside vendor fee of $100/vendor. This is not including the day pass of $92, but from posts on here, brides never get charged the day pass for their vendors.

          tisha: The very first and most important thing you need to do is secure the date and time with a deposit!! Communication is quicker if you call the WC directly, but be sure to get EVERYTHING in writing!! also since your date is this year, the WCs will be communicating much faster with you than with those with a date of 2011. you'll find lots of info on here and if you have any questions, ask away!!

            Thank you Caroline for your response. So what would be the best way to get a hold of the WC and how much of a deposit do they need?

              Okay, I have to admit that I am starting to freak out a little bit. I have been way laid back and over the course of the past 9 months, I've maybe sent 6 emails. But we are flying out in a little more than a week for our wedding, and I can't seem to get a response from the WC. Sent an email more than 10 days ago, trying to get some last minute information as to what Claudia needs from me for the guest list (Iwas told I have to send our final guest list to the WC no later than 1 week prior), also trying to set up a meeting with WC and schedule our rehearsal so I can let everyone know ahead of time and so we can arrange some group trips for our wedding guests. I haven't received a response. Sent the same email again two days ago, and still no response. Call it nerves, but this is making me more than a little crazy!! I figured the communication would get better as we got closer, instead I am getting no communication at all. Is there anyone here who can talk me off this ledge? I am starting to freak out here :-)

The photographer was a huge cost and trade in as we got the sound system from 6-11 at no cost for not using the resort photographer. Hope that helps.
                WOW...I was hoping to nix the Mexican trio and the photographer in exchange for the sound system, more people or ANYTHING! How'd you swing it?!?! Cecilia is my coordinator as well and she said no exchanges

                  oh no thats not ok. call up there!!! we are getting married in sept and cecilia's been great at responding..it only takes her 2 or 3 days to get back to me!! i'd go ahead and email claudia your guest list with a time to meet with her when you arrive and your prefered rehearsal time and then call to confirm that she got it.

                    shae - I just asked her - it wasn't difficult at all to work with Cecilia on it.

                    I would be happy to share emails with you ladies if needed - just PM me your email addresses.
