I was originally told $50 for my centerpiece set-up, but I also am bringing my own chair sashes and fans to put on the guests chairs. So he said it is an additional $50 for the ceremony set-up as well. I am so confused now. :-(

I was married in January 2011 at Dreams PV and was never charged any additional set up fee for my own decorations (this is the first I've even heard about it). The additional decorations we brought and gave for them to set up were:  fake petals to line the ceremony isle; setout guestbook and pen; seashells, napkins, and favor boxes for the reception table; cake topper and cake serving set; podium for MC (resort provided). It wasn't much, but still they never charged us or even mentioned a charge. They really nickel and dime you so can't say I'm surprised......but the fact we were recently married there and not charged I'd question it.

When I emailed Esman I was told there would not be a fee for decor set-up.  This has me a little worried.

just tell him no. tell him you are in contact with other brides who didn't have to pay and that you don't understand why you should pay if they didn't. if he argues, say the same thing, but for the $50 fee. it should force them to get their story straight, if nothing else.

I'm considering a wedding at Dreams PV and just wanted to say hi before I start going question-crazy. I've been working my way from page one for a few days now and took down a bunch of notes. I'm on page 85 so I'll probably be up to speed in a few more days. It is a little annoying that I can't open any attachments until I can get post #s up. But this board seems fabulous. Anyway, HI!!

Okay. So I finally finished reading this whole massive thread. I was psyched and wholey convinced that Dreams PV was it until I hit about pages 135-140ish. Now I'm not so sure. I have to do more research.

I was also just married at Dreams January 2011 and was never charged anything to set up all the stuff I brought...a fee was never even mentioned to me. We had brought table place cards with a "map" of the tables as to where each name was supposed to go, center pieces with fake tea lights in them, "gems" to sprinkle on the tables around the center pieces, cake topper, cake serving set, and guest favours. I would DEFINETLY be questioning this charge!! $100 or even $50 just to set out your decorations seems ridiculous!
