    Hey there,

     

    When are you getting married? We are getting married May 18th and we haven't booked room rates yet.  My travel agent wants me to but I want to wait until you can look at the flight info first.  A lot of times you can find a cheaper rate (like on expedia) booking room and flight together and then hopefully the travel agent can match it.  Are you using a travel agent?

      Does any bride that has been to Dreams know what type of amenities there are?  Do they supply shampoo/cond and is it good?  What about toothpaste?  Just little things Im thinking of before the big day!

          To those already Married: I haven't heard anyone review the ceremony video included in the Ultimate Package. Can anyone please share their experience?  If possible, can you post a link to your video if there is one? Thanks.

            Can anyone post pictures of their receptions here?  I saw some on a photography blog on the desk and what looked like an indoor location.  I am curious about both!!

              Hello-

              We are getting married on June 16 2012.  My travel agent has told us prices are not out for other resorts for next year.  Is this true. She was able to come up with some estimates of Dreams.  We really like the Dreams but want to see others to compare.  How did you decide on this resort and if you dont mind sharing what was the quote?  Thank you so much!!!  I just want to make sure my travel agent is on the up and up.

               

              have a great one- this website is awesome and so helpful.

                Hi ladies.  I have a question to those who have recently gotten married at DRC.  Can you share some thoughts on times for cocktail and reception.  My ceremony is going to be at 4pm and I'm not sure what times to book for the rest of the evening.

                  Hi,

                  My ceremony was at 530pm and our reception was at 7pm and that left a tight time for pictures. We ditched the cocktail hour and just added extra time to the reception on the back end. If you have pics in between and keep the cocktail time, be sure to leave like an hour for pics so you dont have to rush or miss all your cocktail party! Maybe like 4-430pm ceremony, 430pm-530 pictures, 530-630 cocktail party, and 7-10 reception?


                  that would be my ideal timeline, having gone through it all. :)

                  hope that helps!

                    As for the wedding video--

                     

                    we paid for ours and it was kinda cheesy but nice to have. They ask what music you want and we let them choose because we were not prepared, and the music was pretty cheesy. So have music choices ready. 

                    They only had sound for the ceremony, so our entrance music and exit music was not on the video, which was a little disappointing. 

                     

                    But the camera guy was pretty good at capturing moments and getting our guests all on film, and it was fun to watch. (We just got it last night and watched it together!)

                     

                    Not sure it was worth the money, but with so many family members unable to attend, it will come in handy. Not sure how to post it for people to watch since it is just a DVD. I will look into that.

                     

                    If you get it with the Ultimate, it is worth keeping it.

                      Ammenities:

                       

                      There were hairdryers and irons. 

                      There were combs and shoe polish and cotton balls and Qtips.

                      There was a nice shampoo/conditioner and shower gel. 

                      I think a razor and shave gel were in our Honeymoon Suite but can't recall if they were also in our regular room we moved to.

                      No toothpaste I don't think. 


                      that is all I remember off the top of my head.

                       

                      :)
