    I am so glad that someone else out there stalks Nate too!! LOL. FI thinks I'm crazy, but at least he knows what he's getting into :)

        Hey girls! Rebeca just emailed me back and I asked her what a bonfire for the rehearsal night would be - I told her no private meal/drink setting - (I figure that's when they charge per head - for wait staff). She said for the bonfire, mats, marshmellows, it would be $250, which I think is reasonable. My FI doesn't understand that and thinks it's still expensive considering where we live, we can go make a bonfire on the beach for basically free anytime we want.

          Thats a great price! Thanks for the info Jill. FI doesn't want one either because we have a really nice gas fire pit in our back yard and he doesn't like smelling like bonfire. Boys are so high maintenance sometimes!

            That is a really great price! Thanks Jill! I am going to email her today to see how much it would be to include food and drinks with the bonfire. My future inlaws are interested in paying for a rehearsal dinner. But since most of our guests won't be arriving till the day before the wedding we wanted to have something at the resort instead of downtown PV.

              Jessica, if you can, let us know what Rebeca tells you about the food. That's a good point - if my FPIL offer to do something, this could be the perfect ticket!

                  HELP!!! Hello Ladies, this is Nat. I am totally new to this website and forum and in need of serious assistance. My fiance, AM, and I were originally going to be married in June 2010 in Los Angeles, but (to make a long story short) we are now looking at January or February 2010 at Dreams PV! We stayed there in April of this year and loved it.

                  Can you offer any advice on who to work with at the resort? The current wedding coordinator, Rebecca Gonzalez, does not exactly seem excited to help us. Getting information out of her is like pulling teeth, and we have tried in English and Spanish. She keeps punting to others (e.g. someone else has to provide group discount info for rooms, but that person is out this week) for the info we need, but we need it ASAP so we can get moving. And it seems like the kind of info you would think she would have access to. She does not appreciate the urgency of our situation. Maybe she is busy or I am just freaking out too soon (but those of you that are planning Feb. weddings there are way ahead in planning, so I think my meltdown is warranted - )

                  Another idea: I have seen reference to Kristin of Dazzling Details. Shall we use her? How much does she charge? Does she basically take over and make sure everything is handled? Sounds great, but not sure if I can afford her.

                  I will take any and all advice you can provide. I never thought it would be this "last minute", but it is what it is and we just feel blessed that we can even plan a wedding there and are looking forward to enjoying it. Thank you for putting up with this first time forum poster. Sorry if I violated any rules of decorum, etc. Some details follow:

                  Wedding Date: Currently 13 February 2010

                  Guests: Currently 50-75, but 100 is also possible. Better than the 400 we were planning for the local wedding.

                  Details: We prefer the wedding to be at around 5:00pm in the evening, so we can party up to the 10:30pm limit they say they will impose. We understand that there will be a 1 hour cocktail hour following the wedding ceremony, and then a dinner and fiesta. So we need to add significantly to the 20 person package (we will need a banquet type of reception; i.e. seated dinner for all guests, with centerpieces for each table, assuming each table seats 8-10 people, etc.) We will need a sound system to play our own music and an outdoor area where we can have our private wedding fiesta. Is all of this possible? We prefer this to be outdoors and not in a banquet hall. Rebecca did mention that each additional guest over the 20 that are included in the Ultimate Package, will be charged at $55. All our guests will be staying at the resort.

                  Thank you so much for reading this rant. I really need a

                      nat, i can't speak about rebeca, b/c i had a different wc, but keep in mind that it's JUST HER working with girls to plan all of these weddings. she ONLY does wedding stuff - not booking, travel, rooms, etc. keep in mind that although it's last minute to you, your wedding is still 5-6 months away, and therefore, other than confirming a date, rebeca may not be as interested as you would like her to be.
                      there is a lot of information regarding extra guests, dinners, etc. that you can find on your own by reading through this thread very carefully. you may also want to do a search for dazzling details. they've been mentioned by many girls on this site. i found them very expensive, but others did not. the search button is on the upper right side of the page.
