    Hi Ladies,

    In speaking with Yessica several times today, she keeps informing me that I need to pay for my hotel stay at Dreams Resort in order to lock in our wedding date. Is this true? Did anyone else have to do this? I wasn't prepared to pay in full 3,600 dollars (now) to book our hotel stay with Dreams in order to lock-in our wedding date. In addition, we will have to put another $3,000 dollar deposit down in order to block our guest rooms with the hotel. Yessica informed me that she will need to receive our confirmation number before she can lock-in our date and start planning for our wedding. I just wanted to know if anyone else has gone through this? Any help would be appreciated.

    I was prepared to pay a deposit to block my guests rooms, but I'm not prepared to pay my hotel room stay for 7 nights in full, in addition to the deposit for my guests. I think this is a lot of money up front!!

      I worked with Tammy (the host) on our room block and that is what we put down a deposit for. We didn't have to pay for the entire stay but maybe if you go through the hotel it is different. Have you considered talking to a TA about it? I would see if Tammy is available...she is awesome and so helpful with everything!

          I did not do a room block. I just did a wedding confirmation. I don't have to pay anything until I get to the hotel in May 2009, but I am working with an off site WC so I gues she will handle this.

                  I decided to use travel agent Tammy Wright (host of forum). She was able to block 15 rooms for me and provided Yessica with my confirmation number. I did not need to pay for my room in full in order to lock in the date. Since Tammy blocked by rooms for me, I will just need to pay the deposit for my room. My date is now locked in for July 4, 2009.
