Reserving your wedding date at Dreams

Recommended Posts

I booked last May 08 so I did not leave a deposit for Dreams, but Yesica has been in contact with me verifying that everything is going well. I also have an outside WC so I did leave her a $500.00 deposit so maybe some of that deposit went towards the resort.

hello ana
did you hire an outside weddng coordinator? is that why you didn't get the dreams' wedding package?

I just booked my wedding at Dreams and Yarai has asked me for a deposit also. I told her that I'm not purchasing a wedding package and that our rooms have already been booked through a TA and I asked her if I still have to pay the deposit, and if so, what the deposit goes towards. I don't have a problem with paying it (it's not like I'm going to cancel or anything) but I know a number of people who haven't paid a deposit so I just wanted to check :)

I don't think Ana saw this but I know the answer so I'll answer for her wink.gif She didn't book an outside wedding coordinator, but she did book some external vendors on her own (like for flowers and cupcakes). Her ceremony was also located somewhere other than Dreams so she didn't need the ceremony things.

heather, are you having any sort of ceremony or reception at dreams?

 

when you say you aren't booking a package are you going a la carte or booking your own vendor?

 

if you are doing any sort of ceremony or private event there will be a charge whether or not you choose a package...the deposit could be to hold locations, etc.

My wedding is in October '09 and I paid the $500 deposit in November '08. Yarai, my Dreams WC, sent me a contract and the last page did specify my wedding date. We're also not going to purchase a Dreams Wedding Package since I pretty much contacted all my vendors (florist, DJ, photographer, Videographer) myself. We are just paying a la carte for services. But we are having our ceremony and reception at Dreams so the $500 deposit that I paid in November will go toward the ceremony/reception set up fee and the food. Hope this helps!

Thanks Tammy and Marise - I spoke to Yarai yesterday and clarified that I do have to pay the deposit. I was confused because I know others that didn't have to, but since it's a new policy, it makes sense. I'm OK with it anyway because it's nice to get at least part of our costs out of the way now!

 

We're having our ceremony and reception at Dreams but using all outside vendors except for some small items like the hanging lanterns, etc.

 

Marise, what is your wedding date? You said October but your details say Aug 26. I'm just wondering if we'll be at Dreams at the same time! :)

Oh My Goodness! Thanks for noticing Heather! We had originally talked about having it in August but we ended up changing it to October 26th, and I guess I never changed our wedding date! hahaha. Thanks for letting me know! We'll be at Dreams from October 21st through the 30th. Are you staying a little while after your wedding? If so Yea-yay! I might get to meet another BDW bride!

I sent my $500 deposit back in April for our June 25, 2010 wedding. I never signed a contract though? Do I need to finalize all my details first before my WC will send my contract? Is that why I haven't signed a contract yet?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
