Dreams Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

I have tentatively booked a date for Dreams on July 29th. It will be hot and maybe wet but who cares I have a date. I'd like to get some more tips and details of what planning you did after you booked the date. Here are some questions:

 

1. I think most of you booked rooms through a travel agent, what kind of rate could you secure for your guests? Did you get one rate for flight and hotel? What did you do if guests were staying a different number of nights? Did everyone use Tammy?

 

2. Once you had your rooms reserved then what did you negotiate with Dreams? I know some people said they gauranteed X number of rooms and then got free shuttles to town or upgrade on their room etc. I'm not sure what to ask for.

 

3. What else do I need to do now?

 

As always all of your help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Lee, try checking out this thread its for all the dreams cabo brides on the forum I'm sure a lot of your questions can be answered there

 

I booked online and just got a package that included air and hotel and transportation to the resort

 

I know that if you book ten roms at dreams you and your FI get a room upgrade to honeymoon suite

Hope this helps -

 

The rate you get depends on when you book and what's available at that time. Our rate when we did our room block was cheaper than what we could find elsewhere at that time. We just did our rooms, not the air (a lot of people are flying on mileage plans). Our TA did do transfers for us from the airport though. We have guests that are staying seven nights all the way down to two nights. Our room block consisted of a certain number of seven day stays and a certain number of 4 day stays. Based on availability, people could change the dates we had chosen for the room block.

 

All the upgrades and benes we get were listed in our contract for the room block. Almost all of them are based on availability, so there's no guarantee, but I can tell you from having visited Dreams and working with the wedding coordinator, that they seem to do everything they can to make you happy. Probably the best perk of doing the room block was that we got two free nights to do a site visit.

 

As for what to do next, I'd contact a TA (or Dreams) to set up your room block so that you can lock in a room rate and make sure there's availability for the number of rooms you think you will be needing.

Hi Tammy,

 

I have quite a logistical challenge with my wedding and wanted to speak with you to see if you would be the right TA for what we need. We have people who will be flying in from all over the country and a group of us from London. What's the best way to contact you?

 

Thanks,

 

Lee

Kellie and Sarah,

 

Both your emails are very helpful. Now I need to block the rooms and see what we can negotiate. Obviously, free transfers and shuttles in to town would be great. We'll see what else I can do. Obviously, the two free nights down there to check it out is pretty impossible from London. Hey, maybe I could give that to my mom and dad for a present! :-)

 

I'm sure I have more questions so thank you once again,

 

Lee

    • 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.
