    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.

            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?

                  K&R,
                  Thanks so much for the info. I will contact the TA and I will definetly let her know you referred me, but I don't know your name. So just let me know and I will use you as a referral.

                    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. :):)
