    I'm getting married at Dreams Villamagna but thought I'd ask the question here since the resort is so new. I have a general Dreams question that is probably addressed on this forum but I can't easily find an answer so...

    For the Dreams Ultimate Package....are the white linens provided for the reception dinner? It doesn't list that on what is included but I am pretty sure just white table clothes, chair covers, etc are included?

    Thanks,
    -Jen

      We had some debate over this a while back. Here is the answer from the WC at Dreams PV.

      [Autumn] Can you please confirm that the package I purchased (Ultimate) includes chairs, chair covers, and all the linens for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.[Rebeca] yes, the package includes, chairs, white chair covers, white linens and bows for ceremony, cocktail and reception, tables and bar set up.

        Great! Day passes are expensive! I'll ask Beth where/when she usually eats.

          I just got confirmation from Rebeca that the photog does not need a day pass. Just give her their name and time of arrival.

            Thanks! It's getting really close and I am kinda stressing. :o)

            Do they charge extra for a beach gazebo at Dreams PV? I want the wedding on the beach and with the Ultimate package only the chairs, runner, and ceremonial table are included not the gazebo. They are quoting me $290 - $300 for a gazebo with flowers plus flower petals and the tiffany style chairs.

            I am starting to question if the Ulitmate pkg is even worth it since I have to pay for the gazebo Except I wouldn't get the music for the cocktail hour, extra pics and dvd, and spa treatment..

              Hey girls, I just got an email back from Rebeca confirming what everyone's saying about photographers & day-passes:

              me: We've hired Fer Juaristi out of Monterrey as our photographer and I was wondering if we need to pay for a day pass for him to come photograph our wedding at Dreams. [Rebeca] no, just let me know the time he will be coming and if you want to pay for his dinner.

              me: Also, we'd like to make sure he has something to eat for dinner so would we just pay for an extra plate of the dinner menu we pick? What's your experience with this? And is there a separate table for vendors to eat at or should we plan a spot for Fer and the DJ? [Rebeca] if you want to pay for their dinner, you can do it and we will set a separate table for them.

              I also asked about a couple things on the menu:
              me: Also about the menu, what type of fish is the "fillet of fish provencal with mango sauce"? and what is the crab & citrus salad like? [Rebeca] it is mahi mahi, the salad is a mix of crab meet with some citrus juice and mayonaisse dressed with the mango vinaigrette, fresh and delicious.

                i know that you're a noob, and i REALLY hate to sound obnoxious, but read the thread!! it's here as a resource, not for the same questions to be asked over and over again. my review includes hair and makeup done at dreams salon.


                Oops sorry. I've just been reading all the updates for so long I've forgotten what's at the beginning of the thread! Guess it's time to go back and re-read.

                  I am officially confused! I tried to attach what the WC at Dreams VM sent me, to no avail....I tried 4 times and upload fails each time..grr.. Anyhow, they are pics of different styles of beach arbors with different flower/decoration styles. There are like 8 different options ranging from $180 - $300. When I asked the WC if these were included in my package she said "no."

                  Should I be paying extra for this? Exactly what is meant by a "beach front arbor" at Dreams?


                  Any help is much appreciated.

                  Thanks,
                  -Jen

                    Hey Jen,

                    I believe what she means is that the packages at Dreams do NOT include decorations around the Gazebo or Arbor whichever you are using. It does include the ceremony table flower arrangement, but if you want any flowers around the Gazebo/Arbor, that is extra. Does that make sense? Chime in others if you know anything else!

                      hey girls,
                      So I got information from the Dreams Spa in case any of you are missing it.

                      I'm not sure if some of your guests rcvd a $100 coupon to the Spa - I know some online wholesalers have it...but, there are some details about how your guests can use those "coupons"

                      The resort credits (100 for the Spa) can only be used towards massages, facials or body treatments, beauty salon services are not included in this promotion (that includes manicure, pedicure, hair) and they are not combinable, you would be able to use one coupon per treatment and since the credit is divided by 3 coupons (2 of $40 USD and 1 $20) you could use up to $40 USD per treatment.

                      Then I asked her about timing about the manicure/hair/makeup - I'm planning on doing all of it there. They also said they can only take three girls at a time for any beauty treatment.


                      A bridal hairstyle takes usually and hour and the make up about 40 minutes.
                      A regular manicure or pedicure takes 30 minutes and the french usually takes 45 minutes.


                      All of this info is current as of today.
