For every additional person I was charged $35 for dinner and $20 for the cocktail hour. So a total of $55 per person over the 20. It was a 50 person plated dinner at Las Palmas and I had also purchased the Ultimate package. Like Jess said you are paying for the private treatment and it is well worth it. The food, cake and drinks are so much better than even the stuff you get at the sit down restaurants. Also I broke everything down and found that the package was a lot cheaper than not getting one based on everything that I wanted.

i paid $50 or $55 too - i was going to say that $35 must be for the cocktail hour. it stated this in the "extras" portion of the wedding pdf (or .doc?) that was sent to me years ago. i know it's been updated, but it's still probably included on there.

From what I have understood you pay the $55 for every person after the 20 person limit. And yes, there is a minimum amount of people needed for the buffet. It's actually hilarious how people think when it comes to DW if they haven't done any research.

My best friend keeps saying "think of how easy and cheap it will be for you. No stress, ect ect.

Ha, yeah right!

Also, has anyone else been told there is a minimum amount of 60people to do the buffet? That's what Rebeca told me.... aaand that would be friggin expensive!!!!
I think there is minimum of 60 people total. I believe it is $55 per person for the people over the 20 limit. In other words we are having around 100 and we have to pay $55 x 80 people, but that includes the cocktail hour and cake with under the ultimate package. (I am pretty sure I have the correct info, but I could be mistaken)

Hello . I am thinking about moving my location from Jamaica to the Dreams PV. Does the ultimate package include the beach set up with decor, or is it cheaper to go with the other package option?

Hey ladies! I'm trying to sort through this. I am a May 2011 bride and I am doing the Ultimate Wedding Package as well. However I was quoted $85/person for anyone over the 20 included. This included drinks, cocktail hour, food and cake. I thought that sounded extremely steep and am now seeing that it is! I'll shoot them an email and find out why I was quoted so high. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. So great to have this forum!! cheesy.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
