    Does anyone know if they have table overlays available for the rectangle tables? Now that I am getting actual RSVPs back it looks like there might be only 30 people, and having 10 of those people at a head table might be goofy. Does anyone know what layout they are using for the reception (head table, round tables, ......)?

      One per guest is definitely fine! That is what I would do. It adds up and with all of the other stuff they charge you for (LOL)...one is perfect!

I am putting two towels in them (cause i will have two guest to a room), a really funky drinking glass/ mug to keep guests drinks cool during the day at the pool, and a few other small things......haven't totally decided that yet. I only paid $1.99 for two. So a dollar each and they are awesome! looks like i spent like $8.00 per bag! And i figured people could use them again when they get home as well as for the beach while they are there!
        Thanks so much!! I will definitely check out Marshall's! Are you shipping this all down or taking it with you. I am so nervous to ship it...plus it gets pricey

          I am trying to figure out the same thing. I think I am having the round tables but I need to order overlays. I have no idea what size the tables are. If anyone knows this....help!!

            I love raffia fans but then I started to think that it might be too much on the chiar, the fan and the maracha - you ladies thinking of doing both?
            Oh I'll jump in here too...I was afraid it would be too much so I tweaked the idea slightly and I'm going to have them at everyone's place setting (just one as well for cost reasons) and the tag will say "Shake for a kiss" (instead of at the kiss...)

I faxed it 6 weeks ago only to hear that she didn't receive it 4wks after the fact. I reluctantly faxed it a second time after having an extremely rare email back and forth with Ana on Thursday. I asked her to please contact me immediately when she received my info. (011.52.998.848.7001 is the fax I used)
              It is now Sunday...no reply. How did you all submit your deposits? How long did it take for confirmation? Do I have the correct fax? I called the Dreams Corp and that is what they gave me. Sooooooo frustrated....any help is appreciated! Thx
              Hey, I booked mine just after xmas this year and it took her around 2 weeks to send the details to pay the deposit then another week after sending to
              confirm the reciept! Then the contract the following week!

                Hi Ladies,
                I could use some advice. We're trying to book an April 2011 wedding and are still waiting for the DRC wedding coordinator to even acknowledge our request. Its been 2-3 weeks and I'm starting to think that this resort doesn't want my business. I'm tempted to switch to Dreams Tulum because the wedding coordinator there emailed my TA back immediately when we were considering both.
                How are you all dealing with these delays?
                Advice on 'switching' to a seemingly more responsive location?
                Thanks!
                Meggan

The final payment from the guests was due last Friday so things got a bit hectic! The good news is, we received a free room!! We actually received 12 free nights (it was an average from what was booked because people are coming for different lengths of time). We ended up taking 7 of the nights for us, and then received a check for the 5 additional nights that we divided up for our wedding party... (which ended up being about $250 a person, not much but was nice for them to get some $$$ back).

                    I know some of you said you did not receive the promotion because you were a wedding .... I am not sure why we received the promotion, but we went with Apple Vacations and they actually own Dreams... If any of you have not picked a travel agent yet, I would suggest contacting Apple and finding an agent to see if you can get this promotion, it is still advertised on their website!

                      Hi Ladies! I just decided on Dreams RC for my wedding and my TA has contacted the TA to secure my date!! Hopeffully May 6th or 7th 2011.

                      I noticed that the main complaint is the privacy or lack of for the ceremony sites, does anyone know if they have added a more private ceremony site or have moved the location of the beach site.

                      Thanks!
