Wedding date availability - Dreams LR

Recommended Posts

This is kind of me venting but also wondering if anyone has advice.

 

I got a quote back from my TA for Dreams La Romana but neither one of us have heard back from the resort about availability for a wedding during the week I was quoted for. The quote is a great price but is only good for 2 weeks.

 

I am slightly on edge because I feel like I'd be making a rush decision involving other people's hard earned money. I really want to secure the good deal for my guests but I also need to make sure the wedding date is available. I'm not even picky, as long as they have one day during our week stay available!

 

I asked the TA to find out about the availability some time ago and I, myself, emailed the resort a week ago. Anyone have any advice for me please?

Hmmm that is strange. I booked my wedding date before getting prices so I'm not sure. Do you have someone at the resort you can contact directly. I got the email address of the Dreams Cabo WC, emailed her directly and said "we want to get married on this date is it available, we will put down a deposit". And she wrote back THE SAME DAY!!

 

As soon as you mention money the resorts pay attention I find.

That is strange....I have had no problem with the wedding coordinator at Dreams Palm Beach getting back to me with any questions. I made sure my date was available first. Good luck and I hope they get back to you soon!

Good tip. Maybe I'll try and find the WC's direct email address and mention deposit in it! Maybe I did things out of order? I just didn't want to be stuck at one resort if i found vacation packages cheaper at another one. I'm trying really hard to save money where I can, for me and my guests! :) Thanks again.

I would definitely book the date before you book the trip! That is the part that I had the most difficulty with!! I originally wanted to get married in January 2010 but they didn't have any dates available until April!! I found the best way was to call them and talk to them first hand that way it is done right away and you know that it is set!

Hope this helps?!

Gossip Girl,

 

Thank you for that piece of advice! I can't believe it came to that but it worked. I had my subject line in all CAPS and wrote that it was for a deposit and important. I heard back in basically 24 hours. I sent in my information that night and am now waiting to the confirmation in writing. (I'll watch for it on my CC statements.) I sent another email to follow up that she received my CC info and forms and she responded the very next morning saying that she did.

 

So upon your advice, it took 2 days to get somewhere. Who knows how long I could have waited!! I hope that's not a sign of what's to come though! I've already had a few questions unanswered.

 

Thanks again!

btn1091, I was almost going to call! That was my next step! But now that the WC says she has the date and my paperwork, I guess I'm clear to book the trip eh?

I'm glad to hear Tiara has gotten back to you. What are some of the question you have as i might have the answer. I asked her a lot of quesitons in the beginning, a couple of months ago, but haven't spoken to her in a while since I'm since 9+ months away from the wedding.

I see you're getting married May of 2010. Us too! A few questions I'm unsure of are:

Am I supposed to be planning my dinner, music, flowers, cake, decor, photographer and hair & makeup? Do I send emails to the WC on all of these items? Do I have to contact the spa to make appointments now? Do I have to book a photographer for specific times when all of this is included in the wedding package? What about table decorations? Will they have everything available? Do I have to bring decorations? I just don't want to leave anything behind if I could have brought it to "pretty" things up and personalize it.

Does Tiara confirm the wedding location? I've mentioned the gazebo in every email and there's no response to that specifically at all. I've also mentioned having an afternoon wedding and there's been no mention of it.

What about colour schemes? Do I get to choose flower colours? Do I choose the decor colours? What about the flavours of the cake? Or the cake itself - do I show them a picture of what I want? What about the vows? Do I write them? I will be having just the symbolic ceremony. How do I incorporate the sand ceremony? Will they provide a table for this or for set up?

So many questions still!! Sorry to bombard anyone that reads this and especially you, dolphinluck! Thanks though!!!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
