My guests will need to pay their rooms in full 30 days prior to arrival. Another benefit of going through Apple is when you book both air and hotel you only need to put down $150 deposit (so people who cannot afford their airfare right now when it is cheap can still book and only put down a deposit).
As for the room situation, the garden view rooms are no longer available on the website for Dreams. Dreams gives all the tour operators (apple vacations ect.) an allotment of rooms and maybe your t.a. is going through one that only has the deluxe garden view so if you really want ocean view I would ask your t.a. to try other operators

I know this was a topic before but I just wanted to ask...has anyone decided what they will do about a photographer - use the resort photographer or get someone else? I have to make a decision about this really soon and I just don't know what to do!

I have been reaching out to other photographers because I haven't heard great things about the resort photographers and am afraid I will regret it if I just go with them. But we are still deciding!

I am thinking that I will most likely have the ceremony on the beach. It does raise another question about what kind of shoes I will wear, but I'll figure it out.
Laura- as far as photographer goes, I am not sure what I am going to do. I mean, the package does come with one, but I think I will probably have someone else as well. Possibly a family member who is a photographer. But I would still use the one provided too, since he/she will already be paid for. I think we can do that at least...
Does anyone fully understand the difference between the Ultimate and Love package besides the obvious extra services? I guess I am referring more to the gold and silver menus. I am wondering what the big differences are.
I love this forum! Thanks to everyone for their input!

I am extremely excited to be getting married at the dreams Riviera Cancun resort. My wedding date is April 4th 2010. We have now booked our trip and reserved the date. Now I have not recieved a contract as of yet. Anna said that I would recieve it onece the resort opened? I noticed that some of you have?.. Is it becuase your weddings are close to the opening date?
Also I was wondering about photographers. I have booked mine and he is coming from home. He will be staying at the resort but I read something on the facebook page that had said no outside vendors? Anyone know?
COngrats to you all!!! I am very excited and can't wait to see all of your posts and pictures!!
