    Yes he emailed me yesterday saying that he had just done a wedding the day before at DRC, had a meeting with them and would be able to confirm my date with the 2011 rates by next week :-)

      Once you booked your date and blocked rooms off, how long did they hold rooms for?  When did you guests have to pay for their stay?

        I used Claudia for my wedding...she was great!  The contact email I have for her is  info@claudiaphoto.com  And here is a slideshow of some of my pictures

        Does anyone have Claudia Rodriguez's contact info?  I am trying to decide between the hotel photographer and her.  Also,, if anyone has experience with her or could share her pictures, I would appreciate the feedback.

              Hi all (past and future brides),

               

              I am a December 2010 bride (21st) and our wedding date is creeping up on us slowly. I haven't tried to get in touch with the wedding coordinators in regards to the nitty details because I have heard that my best option is to bring whatever I can to Mexico, write down everything I want for my wedding day, and they will take care of it once we get there. Is this not the right approach? 

               

              In terms of my dealings with Dreams, I have only put down my $500 deposit for the Ultimate wedding package and my wedding date reservation. I am currently scheduled for a 2pm wedding but I have not talked to the coordinators about possible reception options ... should I do this before I arrive? 

               

              Is there anything else that I should be doing before I get there? I feel as though this whole process has been a little too easy for me, especially considering what I am reading about other brides. Any help or suggestions are appreciated!! 

               

              Thanks and happy planning! 

               

              Melissa

                Hey Lori - bummer we'll miss each other!  My colors are orange and aqua :-) 

                I haven't gotten to deciding about decorations yet...that is next on my list.  What are you bringing with you?

                  Is anyone having their rehearsal dinner in the wine cellar?  I will have between 24 and 28 people and Gabriela said that it only holds 18, but someone else on here siad they are using it for their party of 22.  Also, she said that there would be a surcharge of $600 in wime consumption.  Thats seems higher than what I remember someone mentioning on here.  Also, does anyone know if there is a dinner charge on top of the $600?  Thanks!

                    I have 22 people but I am not using the wine cellar - we ended up booking a restaurant in Playa Del Carmen because we couldn't squeeze everyone into the wine cellar.   Your best bet is to talk to one of the restaurant managers about sectioning off a little section for your group...some girls have done that.  

                     

                    There is no dinner charge for using the wine cellar - but you do have to pay for bottles of wine - and I believe the final number we heard was $60 per couple.  So if you have 24 people, that's 12 couples, $60 per couple is $720 in wine.

                      My TA said that Gabriela wants to have everything final 2 weeks before the wedding. She said that Ana waited till 2 days before when the couples arrived and it was too stressful. She is sending me all the options and I am picking everything out. I am taking alot of my decoratoins down with me also because I think they charge way too much! So, as your date gets closer (probably in the next 2 months) you'll want to talk with the wedding coordinator.
