Help! Trying to book with Dreams P.V.!

Recommended Posts

i did not use their photographer, but if it's the same person that did the photographs during the day, they were ok. plain pics, nothing artsy, etc. the videographer was ok - that part wasn't important to us (tho looking back, we wish we had some things on video) and we got what we paid for.

i decided to go around Dreams and go with a travel agent that works with them. She got me a really good rate and did all the leg work for me. Kristen from DD recommended her. Gaby is too overwhelmed, but the travel agent helped me out greatly. The only bad thing is you have to put up quite a large amount of money to secure the rooms (which you get in return), but its a large sum...warning you in advance. PM me if you want her info.

In response to Kisa's info about holding rooms. We booked 20 rooms for May 09' at the Dreams and had to put down $2000 which we will get back after the wedding. Our guests have already fulfilled our 20 rooms plus, so that puts my mind at ease. This did secure a rate of $108 pp per day, which I felt was great. Please let me know if someone else got a better rate.

 

Mattang:

As far as having a wedding. I know someone who has a great villa sleeps 10 people and can accommodate a wedding of approx 30 people and the villa during off season is only $700 a night. Which is great divided by 10 people. There is other villas near by for other guests or they can stay at the Dreams. If you would like more info let me know.

 

Happy Planning..... Again I know Kristin from Dazzling Details comes with a fee but it is totally worth every penny. smile123.gif

Kathy, that seems like a really great rate, did you use a travel agent? which one? The room you got for free---was it a regular room or is it a suite. I keep reading about people using DD, if you don't mind me asking how much do they charge?

Just about Dreams and outside WC's - other WC's do and are allowed to work at Dreams ... such as Incredible Weddings, Vows Vallarta, Prisar, among others.

 

However, with that said, most of these coordinators work some resorts more frequently than others for various reasons - much of it having to do with the relationship they have personally with the on-site WC - you know - the more you work in a place, the more you know how it works, the better you know the people, the easier it is to get things done. Just so you know :):).

Thanks for the clarification. I know when I called the Dreams Resort, they told me if I wanted an outside coordinator to work with DD, so I figured they either really liked them or this was the only company they would work with.

 

But great information for other brides who are chosing to go with a different coordinator.

 

Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This means more amazing weddings at The Dreams Resort.

 

Oh and by the way I called the resort last week and they said they got a new WC themselves and this may be why brides are getting a delayed response.

 

Mishka did you work with DD, I noticed a number of your pictures are the same ones on their site?

So sorry Kathy Thomas.... Teresa the TA has been great to work with. My guest have only had to put down a one night deposit on their room, then the other half in Nov and the final payment in April. This is working very well for them and makes me happy they don't feel one big financial hit.

 

Best

Kathy

Hello! :) Yes, the resort does have a new WC and she's trying to get caught-up to speed - I believe her name is Diana. Hotels, just like coordinators, have favorites and TDD has developed a good relationship with them (Dreams), so it doesn't surprise me that they recommend them.

And, yes, I use to work for TDD for 2 years as their designer, along with my now partner, Omar. We stopped working with them at the end of the season (in june) of 2007. :):)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
