I don't have the info with me right now but I think we switched one of the main dishes out for the chicken suprema and Claudia said it was no problem :) PM if you have more specific questions I have a few emails from Claudia I can go through.

          Hi, Thanks for this information. Do you know how many hours you get through the Ultimate package?I saw most people on his site didn't get pictures of the reception. I'm wondering if that is because it wasn't included?

            Another quick question, how did you guys get the cocktail hour? Is it something you asked for when you got there or did you book it with the WC? I can't seem to get a response, since my wedding is in March. I really would like to know if I should put the cocktail hour in the invitations. 

             

            thanks!!!!

              The buffet menus I recv'd from Claudia were the same ones posted on the dreams website in that wedding booklet. Do you have that? We just asked if we could interchange with items from either silver or gold buffet menus ( she said yes) and she let us switch out an item off of one of the regular menus and put it in the buffet. No extra charge.

               

              We are also doing the buffet option since we have over 40 people coming down.  If you have any information on the menus and such please post.  If email is easier please forward to bnwedding2011@gmail.com

                I want to do this for our reception! This is my exact inspiration picture as well. I emailed Claudia about it today. If you get more information, clgriffi, can you please let me know? I will also post whatever Claudia says about the lanterns when she replies. The wedding must be getting close, because her responses are coming  faster and faster! :)

                For my later cocktail hour I would need to hang lights in them (there is a good thread on BDW on how to make the lights), but I am not sure if Claudia would be willing to do all that...

                  Sorry Jill - I don't think any of us have too much info on the renovations.  I checked with my travel agent back in March about this (because some brides were worried about their anniversary nights) and at that time she said:

                   

                  "I talked to Claudia and she said they are not closing in 2012, just doing renovations. It's possible that something could change regarding that, but as of right now they don't have any plans to close."

                    Most of us have selected the Dreams Ultimate Wedding Package and the cocktail hour (for 20 guests) is included in that price.  With the cocktail hour you get 4 different appetizer selections to go along with drinks.  Some brides select to trade out the cocktail hour for 10 more guests ("free") at the reception with the idea that it is an all-inclusive resort and guests can just go up to the bar and get drinks for themselves during that hour.

                      Will do!  I haven't heard back from my PM so I am guessing that isn't a good sign.  I can see them being more willing to hang the lanterns for a reception on the terrace since you will at least be there longer.  But if she is okay with doing it for your reception, then I can push it a bit further and ask about the cocktail hour.  Fingers crossed...
