In order to break that language barrier, I think I am going to change the way I email her. I am going to start asking questions in a list from 1 to 10 or whatever number my questions go up to. That way, she can answer each question individually. Of course, she probably wont answer them fully.

 

And on the other hand, we all need to keep in mind that the WC's at Dreams do this at least once per day, so they are very familiar with how to run and coordinate a wedding. I just need to step back and take a deep breath...and try to relax.

Hope this helps!!! Let us know if you have anyt other questions. I know how overwhelming planning a destination wedding can be. smile123.gif

Soooo....I am not having any luck so far with this DW thing!! Sunday will be TWO weeks since I sent my first email to them just to set my date!....Then this past Monday, I sent them e-mails directly from the addresses I got off the Web Site....

I know everyone on here told me it may take a little while, but I dont understand how hard it is just to set my date!! I don't need them to do anything else until it gets closer to the wedding...My Travel agent (my new one...not the one that filled the same online request form that I did and i still haven't heard from him!!) Anyway, my TA will take care of the travel and things like that (Obviously), but I can't even get prices until I set a date.

My family & friends want to come, but they also need to know how much money they are gonna need for this and it's less then a year away (hopefully)

I'm sounding like a broken record, but it's very discouraging :-( I'm so excited for this and it's like I'm stuck one spot!

I know you girls have probably been there done that..LOL so thanks for letting me vent :-)

my advice is - get a calling card, call the concierge, have them track down the WC and get them to verbally commit to date and email it to you. Continue to call until you have the email. I had to get people on the phone...before that it just wasnt happening - they are just too busy.


(ps - i am a shelter mom of 3 - i so agree!)

I went the whole calling card route, but I had a really hard time getting a hold of people at the hotel. I was COMPLETELY frustrated, but then my travel agent took over and my date was set the next day, and Gaby has been e-mailing me regularly ever since. I have no idea what she did, but maybe you can ask your travel agent to try making some calls for you.

hang in there, phillybride ... it's VERY frustrating in the beginning! i eventually got my travel agent in touch with the wedding coordinator and she was able to get available dates for me ... but even that took the TA at least a week or so. then a few weeks later i finally got a response to the emails i had sent about 2 months prior!

 

it gets better ...

Thanks for all the advice! :-)
I am actually going to a new Travel agent tomorrow...I am going
to explain my situation and I'm hopeing she just picks up the phone and calls.
I'm at the point now where I am thinking of getting married some where else. But I really love it there, so that's why I'm holding out a little longer.
In the mean time I am enjoying reading everyone's Planning Journal
threads and I
am getting excited for when the time comes when I can put mine up there!! :-)
Thanks again everyone! I'll keep you updated and hopefully I'll have a
set date by then!! :-)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
