    Hi jkhowell,

     

    I'm new to this forum and just saw that your wedding is the day before mine.  There's a chance that we might run into each other.  I have not done anything yet for this wedding except reserving the date.  Hope 4 months is enough time to plan a wedding :-)

      @ tkb08 - Thank You - I designed the logo from some artwork I have seen on photostock - I am a graphic designer so it was easy for me to "borrow" the line art but the fonts, little symbols and layout all came from me.

       

      I paid $2500 for La Luna - Not including the extra cost (approx 80 for their day pass x 2 + $50 x 2 tip - split between the 2 photographers) - I would budget $2800 total

       

      @jkhowell - Thank you too! See answer to La Luna above - the small sand ceremony was provided by Dreams - when we returned to our room at the end of our night the small sand filled vase was on our coffee table with a bottle of champagne. I am assuming they have all the colors you want - just let them know ahead of time.. So no need to bring down your own unless you want a bigger sand ceremony. :)

            I see that most people are going with outside photographers. The ultimate package includes the resort photographer - does anyone have any reviews on the photographer that is included with the package?

              Hi CKNMVS:

               

              Well we were told by Gina that we could not use a DJ other than what they offer.  I guess if you choose to be persistant it may work.  However we looked into edgar cardoso which is one of the 2 resort Djs and we came across one of his associated - DJ Roy (Rodrigo Barcelo) who happens to have Excellent reviews and is very attentive when replying to emails.  So if you cant seem to find a way of working with the DJ of your choice I recommend you email DJ roy @

              Hi Rachallen,

              Did you get this sorted out? I am trying to get in touch with WC, and am trying to see if the DJ/photographer is a guest if it is then ok to use their services, and I would imgaine since paying for a room for them that outside vendor fee would be removed. Of course still havent heard back.

              Just wondering if you had any luck. $600 compared with well over $1500 (when you factor in tax/gratituty) is huge savings!

                Hi. There are many previous reviews that Anel is the best, that's who I have doing mine. I can let you know how she is after December 7th :)

                  Well I just spoke to GIna who said I can not use an outside DJ.  She said it's there policy right now and each Dreams approves different vendors. I asked her if I need to take my wedding to another resort, she said she would ask her manager again....
