    Does anyone know what the Ultimate package includes as far as chair covers, chair bows, overlays, etc? Are these items included just for the first 20 people and everything over that number is extra?
    Also, she likes the idea of having a choice of entrees, as she wants the surf and turf, but some of her guests either don't eat meat or don't eat seafood. I agree with Bianca, most places always offer at least 2 choices of entree.

      AlliMay - Could you possibly send me that wedding guide via email? I ended up giving in and opening it at work without saving it and now when I try to open it again at home it is saying I don't have enough points. I need to email it to my TA cause she was asking about it. Thanks.

        Disregard my previous post, something must be wrong with my home computer cause I tried again to open at work and it worked fine so I was smart enough to save it this time. I knew I had enough points, darn screwy computer!!

          Hey Ladies!

          I am considering the "Ultimate Package" and I was wondering if any of you know how they will be charging non-hotel guests.

          Does the purchase of a Day Pass include everything? Ceremony (their chairs), reception (food and drinks)?

          Or will I have to pay for everything on top of the day pass seprately? Day pass+ceremony+ reception? Which will add up to A LOT of $$ if people don't end up staying at Dreams.

          Day Pass= lunch and dinner $55
          Full Day Pass= bfast, lunch, and dinner $80
          Ceremony set up= for more that 20 people extra cost?
          Dinner per person for "Ultimate Package" is $55 pp.

            The day pass is usually separate from the charge for the ceremony set up and cocktail hour and/or reception dinner

              I agree with Bianca...my TA said that a day-pass would be necessary just to get any guests staying outside of the resort, onto the premises. Any charges for food, rental items, etc. would be on top of that initial cost.

              Needless to say, I am encouraging everyone to stay Dreams and avoid the hassle of getting people in.

                oh my! so much to consider!

                Hi im sam...newbie on the forum, but have spent countless hours the past few days reading numerous threads of many resorts.

                Im definately considering DPA but with all these separate charges for everything its making my head hurt!
                It seems really hard to keep the budget down especially if youre going to have about 50 or so people which i think is gonna be my turnout! And no, no banquet hall for me either!

                Can some of you tell me why you chose DPA though because I know that many of you have mentioned that you were DT brides before. I understand the closing posed a problem for some, but besides that why did you decide DPA instead? because the prices seem basically the same btwn the two resorts to me.
                any insight to help me decide where to lock down my decision would be great! thanks!

                  Check out this thread... http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t26610

                  The pricing is the same for all the Dreams resorts.

                    ok sounds good- yes i think i just came across that thread today actually, thanks.


                    Also so those who have more than 40 people (i think that was the cap on the gazebo), do you have your ceremony at the beach instead

                    im just really concerned about how many people are going to show up bc many people have told me they want to come already and i havent even set a date yet! ah!

                      Hi suntansam---just checked the DPA website and it says that the max. number of people allowed in the gazebo is 80...I doubt that all 80 would be able to sit, though...

                      Also, to comment on your other post...one of the main reasons that I chose DPA over DT (in addition to the others in the thread Bianca posted) was because the entire hotel had just been renovated...I would really hate for one of our friends or family members to get placed in a room that was in need of repair / update, as I know how that can sour a person's experience. With the switch to Dreams, my TA assured me that all of the rooms were totally re-done.
