      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 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?
