    Here it goes: do you know if Dreams has any kind of extra fee for using outside photogs. I also want to hire Claudia Rodriguez, Erick from her studio did my BFs wedding and he did a phenomenal job. I read a post on this forum about many hotels havign a fee for outside photogs and now I'm freaking!!!!!
    Sabina, as far as I know there is not an extra fee at dreams, I think someone may have answered this question in another post, but I'm not positive. I think the only fee that might be possible would be a day pass fee, which is usually around $80

      Hi Girls, I am also getting married in Nov at Dreams. Just to let you know what Claudia got a new assistant. Her name is Daniella Castillo. She is very nice and also responsive. She has been assigned to take care of my wedding in November.

          That is great! We have recently reserved a date with Claudia for Feb of next year, so I will be a Dreams bride too! I am so excited I feel like we are finally getting somewhere. We are going through the initial quote trying to make sure we add items, ask questions and make sure we don't miss anything!

            Paula-
            Exciting news! Glad to officially have another Dreams Cancun bride! You'll really be well informed by Feb... as several of us have Oct/Nov. wedding dates and will be able to give you all the details :)

            Sabina-
            There doesn't seem to be any problem bringing outside vendors into Dreams. I'm not sure about the day pass though. I should check into that. I am using an outside photographer (Citlalli from Claudia Rodriguez) and an outside videographer (Paul Schrank) for our wedding. We booked the "ultimate package" which included some minimal photography and videography. Since I will not be using that portion of the package, I will receive a credit that I can used towards something else. In fact, I just got an e-mail from Claudia (or maybe the new assistant... yeah!) that gave me the exact credit I would be receiving. Anyway, I will look into the day pas thing and see what I can find out.

              Pipi-
              Thanks for sharing the exciting news about Claudia's assistant! She probably really needs 2 or 3, but something is better than nothing! Do you know if she has a seperate e-mail address?

                susan,

                did you already fill out your survey?? I haven't yet because I'm not sure on everything. I'm glad to hear that you got a credit for the stuff you're not using, so is it just the photography & videography that you're not using? Would you mind telling me what your credit was? I'm hoping that with the couple of things I won't use that my credits can cover the sound system or a dj, or most of it!

                  Here is what she quoted me for credit...

                  Photography:
                  $ 380 usd + 10% tax for the 36 photos included in the package.

                  Videography:
                  Dear Susan.

                  We will give you a credit of $ 300 usd for the video, you can use this credit for more flowers or cake.

                  No music after 11 p.m. (outdoor areas)

                  Thank you!

                  As far as the "survey" goes... I guess I'm not exactly sure what that is. Is that the same as the wedding request form? When my parents went down in Feb., they put 50% down on our wedding package to reserve the date.

                  Some how we will get this all figured out...

                    Gathering from the e-mail I received, the 11pm rule applies to outdoor areas. Maybe if you are indoors in the ballroom you can party all night long....

                      Yah, I spoke to my TA yesterday and she said that she doesn't think that there is an extra fee for the photog/videog (that sounds funny LOL) but she'll make sure to get that in writing from Claudia for me! (Yei)

                      Jill,
                      so aparantly, the survey is the contract. Who knew! LOL I told my TA that I filled it out but not fully since I don't know all the info just yet, mine has a ton of ?s and ranges and she said that's fine and they expect that. I recomment that you get yours in asap to make sure your day is reserved. Just give her the tentative info.
                      Yes, I kind of figured the survey thing was the contract, my TA already reserved my date and I've asked her several times, does this need to be in right away because I don't know some of the answers and she was like no, you've got plenty of time. But I think I've made most of my decisions now, so I can probably get it sent in with what I have so far.

                      Okay, thats good. I think I might keep the video person they have, I don't need a super long video, but if we have one of the ceremony that will be good since its included. So I'll just ditch the photographer and figure out if there is anything else we don't need. At least the photographer credit should cover a couple hours of the sound system.
