I have the pictures on my work computer, so I'd have to post them another time. They have orchids, which is not a local flower, hence the more expensive price. But Esman quoted me more than the usual cost of bouquets/centerpieces for that reason! I didn't want to compromise on this as I have my heart set on orchids, so I am working with someone else for all flowers. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a destination wedding at an all inclusive with a wedding package! But like I said I'm not willing to compromise on this...

I'm so curious... can you post the picture here? I'd love to see this $300 bouquet and $350 centerpiece! I mean, its Mexico, there are flowers everywhere, its not like its Northern Canada in the wintertime!

OMG... that's like 4-5 wedding coordinators in a year!!!!!!!!! I'm surprised anyone takes that job with all the turnover. Obviously there is something wrong... I know part of it is that Dreams PV holds way too many weddings for what they are able to handle and that's why there are so many issues. To accomodate the 250-300 weddings per year that they (Dreams PV) want to hold they need to have a minimum of 3-4 at minimum coordinators, not 1 or 2.

I just received an email today saying Esman is moving on.  Wow, I can't believe all the turnover but I can't say I am surprised.  I was assured that everything will be taken care of.  I am so glad I got my contract and wasn't looking forward to working with Esman anyway considering how unaccommodating he was in the planning stages.  They really do need to hire more WC's.  Maybe they will give us brides a free bouquet now..hahaha

 

I'd love to see the bouquet that Esman said costs $300. also! :)

You might try writing Dreams PV and let them know you are unhappy with the turnover - I can't say that it will help - but it might.  The biggest problem is you over-work your staff and pay them very little - giving very little incentive to stay.

 Hey ladies,

This was the inspiration for my centerpieces.

WedIdeas is doing the majority of my flowers so I'm having her also do the orchid strands ($6.50 each, 2 per centerpiece) and have asked dreams to recost without flowers, which for a twig in some rocks BETTER not be ridiculously priced. But who am I kidding...thatswck.gif

Wowza, I never heard that Esman was leaving. I sent him an email a few days ago with more questions, do you know whether they are using the same email address (weddings1.drepv@dreamsresorts.com)? Hopefully the new coordinator is able to keep up with all of us and we don't have to deal with any more changes. Keep positive Dreamgirls :)

I've received a reply from someone from the same email as Esman used. No name at the end though so I don't know who I'm talking to....

I expressed to them I was disappointed. I have read some issues you ladies have had with Esman, but I loved him. I even received a preliminary contract last week! And my wedding isn't until 2/25/2012! He was definitely on it with me.... Scared to see who is coming in next..

 

Staying as positive as can be!! :)
