    Wow, Thanks for the piece of mind on the bugs, i heard some pretty scary sounding reviews but kind of figured it was from some people who REALLY cant handle the outdoor feel at all. haha

    Sarahben2011, I recieved an email from Eleane today our wedding co-ordinator at DREAMS and maybe they didnt understand me but the email i recieved from her twice because i tried to clarify it was

    "Do i just pay for a day pass for the outside vendor or is there a rate for outdoor vendors? Or do they get charged at all? And what is the cost?"

     

    ELEANES REPLY "In answer to your question, here is the policy where it states the fee for external provider.

    Included services are non-transferable, non-refundable and do not hold any cash value. In case of an external provider, there is a fee of $500 USD for up to 3 stylists, the fee has to be paid to the spa. The guest is responsible for any service and for the external provider honoraries."

     

    Im so confused!!! $500 for people to come do our hair? up to 3 stylists? what if i have one? $500 is alot for 3 let alone 1 person to do our hair!!

     

     

    So i guess we will all JUST miss eachother Sarahben2011- your first, then me and then Jmikla! I CANT BELIEVE HOW FAST TIME HAS FLOWN BY!! Sarahben2011 you must be getting SO excited you leave in what 30 days?

      $500 that is insane!  Is the person doing your hair/make-up a guest of the wedding or staying at the hotel?  If so you wouldn't have to pay anything.  You don't want to do hair/make-up at their salon?

       

      They quoted me $100 for an external videographer or photographer - and they quoted that last fall so maybe prices have gone up (as usual)!

       

      All of our weddings are coming up so fast!  We get get married in 36 days so we leave in 33!!  ahhhh i'm beyond excited!  And our bach parties are this weekend so that'll be a blast!   It's time to start WORKING OUT, I'm such a slacker!!!

        i would like to start by thanking all those that have posted on here. Hope you dont mind a couple of questions from the groom. Our wedding is schedualed for 5pm Dec 03. I am starting to think that we may need to move it forward a bit after reading some of these posts.

         

         

        Here are some questions:

         

        1) any comments from those that have experienced the gold dinner or gold cocktail package? Anything you ordered and perhaps didnt like? We have 40 guests coming and staying at the resort.

         

        2) on our excel spread sheet the cost of a high table is $80 each. Are the high tables included in the cocktail party?

         

        I am sure there will be more :-)

          I was quoted $500 when I started planning with them over a year ago. That was for any type of outside vendor (makeup/hair, dj, photographer, etc.). I can't remember if there was any fee or a small fee if the outside vendor stayed as a guest at the resort.

           

          I thought it was pretty outrageous too but after doing a lot of research, most resorts do this that I looked into. That is why we just decided to do everything at the resort. It was cheap and easier.

                      Yea $500 is way to expensive for us! The lady I want to do my hair and makeup isnt from pv so she would have to drive to us!but if we choose to use her still I'm going to look into renting a cheap hotel for one night and just using it for the day so she can do our hair and makeup! I do understand the praise vendo fee but Wen I can pay for a day pass for $120 why do they really need to know what she's doing there lol! And don't worry I'm a procrastinator too and need to get my butt in gear ASAP! At least I have my dress and the bridesmaids that's most important!
