I feel a little bad about being so sneaky, but oh well!

 

 

That's what I paid when I was there. That's just their new price for it now, when they updated their price list. It's actually the same as what Rebeca quoted me: $150 for ceremony and $300 for reception. Then when they redid the pricing in the "wedding guide", its just listed as $450 for ceremony and reception - which is the same.

Ok, so I emailed Louise last night and got an email back early this morning. Fastest response I ever had! I expressed how upset we were with the changes, prices, and a few other issues we've been having. She did tell me that they will honor any price I was quoted by Rebeca or any other WC we've had contact with. So if any of you girls have any email correspondence with 2010 prices in them, save them and tell Louise/Esman. I also recommend pushing for a contract like I did so there is no more flip flopping with prices and availability of services.

I'm glad to here that a few of you are making a stand...good for you! I sure hope Esman is better than Louise. We didn't deal with him much although he was there when we met with Louise. Just an FYI that he is hard to understand (accent is super thick and English is so-so).

I think it would depend on when payment is due on the trip.  1st payment for our wedding in May is February 6th so I sent my invitiations out in the beginning of January...The response date I used was the first payment due date.  It worked out pretty well.  Hope this helps

hey ladies! Soooooo....we were so frustrated with Dreams and everything going on, that we have decided to get married off of the resort. We have reserved Le Kliff. We really love it and I am actually really excited. I think this all happened for a reason. I feel so much better because contact has been awesome. We will still be having the bonfire and everything. 

 

On a side note, I just got home from work. I'm outside of Chicago and don;t know if any of you have seen the crazy weather, but OMG! I'm a nurse and they called a disaster code, so we were not allowed to leave. I worked yesterday for 12 hrs, slept at the hospital, and got off at 7pm after another 12 hr shift. I'm exhausted! I hope anyone else hit with this weather is safe and warm!

I befriended Louise on Facebook and she will actually answer your questions if you send her a message. She is super speedy about it also. I feel so much better now. I now have to tackle the task of getting Esman to answer my e-mails since I assume Louise will be leaving.

Yeah I don't want anyone to think that Louise was the problem. She really tried, but she just wasn't clear about her answers. She now says that she told us they would honor the 2010 prices, but we have all the emails and that was never said. She was very gracious about us canceling. It was just too many things. First the change in coordinators, then all the price problems. One example: I asked if Oceana was still available for rent. She said no. Then 3 days later she said yes. We were in the process of pricing le Kliff - so the private space may have changed our minds. basically, for about the same cost, it seemed worth it. Actually, having it at LeKLiff is cheaper than renting Oceana. She said if she knew we would cancel, they would have been quicker to honor things - well I shouldn't have to threaten them to have them do that.  They have a corner on the wedding market, but they need to realize that they still need to give the brides a lot of attention (if wanted) and offer a competitive product.

 

i am still super excited about Dreams. we are still having the bonfire, which sounds amazing! Please don't anyone think I am trying to rain on their parade! Partly is was our fault for not clarifying earlier. So just learn from our mistake!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
