    Hello everyone.


    I just got engaged and started planning our wedding. Dreams PV has been the best option so far.

    Anything I need to know?


    And also, I would take recommendations for a travel agent, since you all seem to recommend getting one.


    Thanks :)

      Cherazi, congrats on your engagement. I see this is your first post. Welcome to the site, you will become addicted to it. There is soo much info.  Where are you writing from?  You may find some help from some of the B2B regarding travel agents if you indicate on your profile where you are at. Also, I just noticed at the top of the page there is an ad for DW Travel Agents.

        For anyone who had booked when the outside vendor fee was already in place ($500 for 50 people plus $500 deposit, etc), did they charge it? What if we fly our photog in and they are a guest? I know we have all discussed thes ad nauseum....but it seems most brides who recently brought someone in booked before that rule was in set in stone, so the fee got waived. We are just trying to figure out what is most economical (as far as not using the resort's photog).


        Anyone have any exciting news of their own?

        I am also looking for an outside-vendor photographer and trying to figure this out! If the photographer is an invited guest but, doesn't stay at our hotel, then we have to pay a non-hotel guest fee, right?

          I believe you would have to pay for him as a guest, and I'm not sure about their vendor policies mow, so i wonder if it would be beneficial to call him a friend, Esther than photographer.....? that being said, I got married before they had vendor rules, so we just told the wc that the photog was coming and that she should make arrangements.

            I went through my notes and found the outside vendor memo... see the attached (not sure about your question though about the photog being a guest)

                Oh sorry about that...so here is the most important part of the attachment (at least I think is the most important part)

                • From 0 to 50 people: the charge will be 500 usd American dollars
                • From 51 to 100 people: the charge will be 1,000 usd American dollars
                • From 101 to 150 people: the charge will be 1,500 usd American dollars
                • From 151 to 200 people: the charge will be 2,000 usd American dollars

                Also, as per for the external providers contractor, must leave a 500 usd American dollars guarantee deposit in case of property and/or installations damage. If there is no damage, such deposit will be returned once the event is over and has been reviewed by our personnel, making sure the installations were presented clean and in perfect condition without any damage whatsoever.
