    Oh Thanks for answering this question! This saves me the headache of actually trying to get a WC to answer my question!

     

    I can do without hanging paper lanterns if it means saving some $$

I asked about the gazebo and hanging lanterns, but for those you will have to pay the $150 to get them to do it. They told me that it was a safety issue, they don't want a guest to be on a ladder on fall and break something!

    But for any decorations that you don't need a ladder for, you can do it yourself. I received this response in August of this year, so it was very recent.

    If anyone has the 2011 copy of the wedding guide I would love to get a copy please, our wedding is March 28th and I would like to know ahead of time how much they are raising the prices!!

    Hope this helps!

      I recently sent the WC a msg to ask about fees for hiring a DJ from outside the resort. She told me that it is $100 to use an outside vendor for the wedding including the DJ. Does this sound right? I  thought you just had to buy a day pass $50-90. Just curious

        I had asked Natalia about having the DJ provide the sound system and music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception. She said that the DJ cannot play during the ceremony and that we'd have to rent the sound system for any music we want played. During the cocktail hour, we have to use the trio that's included in the Ultimate Pkg and then we could use the DJ (outside vendor) for the reception. Is that right? Why can't the DJ play our music for the ceremony? I also thought thought we would have to pay for the day pass for the DJ and photographer (if using outside vendor) and it was $90...what the heck?!?

              I hired DJ Bijan for our ceremony and reception so he will be playing both, I've learned to not ask them questions just tell them what you are doing, it works a lot easier.  Also when you go to pay that "vendor" fee double check your bill and pull out the guide.

               

              Sadly every other dreams resorts allows for their brides to switch things in the package, I'm not sure why DT is so different but maybe if we collectively pull resources and contact someone things may change, who knows.

                We also have DJ Bijan booked for ceremony and reception. I can't see the issue with ceremony as you don't HAVE to rent the sound system.... it is just an option. When I asked Aurora about outside DJ's I was told that we only had to pay the day pass fee, there was no 'outside vendor' cost mentioned. I am so excited about our wedding, and I just know that DT will be fabulous..... but these little discrepancies are really STRESSFUL!!!!

                  When I asked Landy about the fees for an outside DJ, she said we would need to buy a day pass for him... didn't mention anything about an "outside vendor fee"

                    Thanks gals!  I'm just getting a bit frustrated with this! I want to get more information so I can have it for our invitations and so i can also update my "wed-site".  As much as I want them to provide me with more details - I don't think I should be asking them anymore questions. 

                     

                    VlynnW - I'll have to take your advise and just do it!!

                      This is so frustrating, Landy is the one who just told me I would have to pay a $100 vendor fee... I am so afraid of what fees they are going to throw in once we actually get there.
