FYI future Dreams Brides. I found Louise on Facebook through Dreams' Facebook page, maybe we can also use that to keep her communication more consistent? Search for her under: Louise Dreams-Weddings

Hi guys,

 

I know there was a thread about this a long time ago but I didn't really get a response to it and I've tried searching but nothing's come up. I recall reading somewhere that there is a $500 fee for an external vendor. I've been following this thread closely and it hasn't come up again. Can anyone that has recently gotten married confirm if that's true? If so, is it $500 for per vendor? We have booked our photography with Karla Benitez, of PV and for some reason, I recall something about anyone that is local only having to pay the day pass.

 

Also, I was planning on booking a make up artist to come in and do all of my BM's make up. Surely, there's no cost for that? Would I have to pay a daypass for the make up artist to be able to come into the hotel?

 

Sorry if these questions seem silly.. but I really appreciate any input anyone could give me with their recent experiences!

m1984... I'm not sure about the vendor fee, but as far as makeup goes I had mine done by the same person in the spa that did my hair (Bianca I believe her name was) and it was the best makeup job I've had. I would suggest her unless you really want to go outside. She did a great job of my hair as well...

I think the policy on outside vendor fees may have changed recently. 

 

Here is what Rebeca told me back in August:  [Rebeca] actually it is a $500 usd surcharge fee PER OUTSIDE SUPPLIER you decide to bring into the property and you can not bring more than 3.

 

But here is what Tania said in November re the fee:  "If you decide to hire your own photographer will be fine, but when you hire an outside photographer the hotel will be charging you a $100usd fee to let him in property since we have those services in house."

I actually have a document that states if the photographer is from PV, you only have to pay a day pass. I don't enough points to attach it here, but anyone interested, PM me and I'll forward it to you!  I don't know about other vendors. I am actually probably bringing in hair and makeup, so I better find out!

Ok I just checked; here are the first two points:

 

 

EXTERNAL PHOTOGRAPHERS POLICIES

In the terms when the client decides to use the services of an external photographer, the Dreams Puerto Vallarta Hotel has certain rules, policies and procedures to be observed:

  1. The client will be charged a $90 usd per person daily fee, for using the services of an external photographer.
  2. The above fee will cover each workerâ€s dinner and non alcoholic drinks, at the event area and during the dinning time.

 

There are a total of 13 points on it, mostly stating that the photographer cannot damage anything. If the photographer requires any assistance from Dreams, there is a $500 fee. Anyone who needs this, PM me!!

Thank you so much gowiththeflow!!! I thought I saw that somewhere but it never was mentioned again! I will pm you my email! What a relief! The fiancée is livid about paying 500 for the photographer to come on site! And dreams2011 that's so great to hear!! I would so much rather the hotel do the make up as it's just so much easier. I know bridal hair and make up is included but does anyone how much it costs to have it done for your BM? I have 4 and only need hair since one BM is a hair stylist and will do hair. Again thanks guys!!! Were getting married end of May and I figured I should start looking into these finer details and stop holding off.

Hi Palapa Girl!

How much are they charging you for the day and what are they doing specifically?

That's also what I paid in May for my BM's hair/makeup. Bianca did mine & 2 other girls in the spa did the BM's (1 BM had both hair & makeup, the other 2 just had makeup). All of them did a fabulous job!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
