Does Dreams PV really charge a fee for outside vendors???

Recommended Posts

I can't believe that! I am emailing Rebeca right now about this. I booked well over a year ago so hopefully she won't give me an issue. Good luck girls!!!!!!

I booked last year in like March or April & was told we have the 2009 rates even though the wedding isn't until this May. A while back (maybe a month?) I emailed Rebeca about the possibility of paying for a day-pass for our photog & she said we wouldn't have to.

 

Come to think of it, when I first booked they didn't even have a photographer to offer, and we booked the Ultimate package. When I asked Rebeca about photogs, said that they didn't provide that service so we could bring in someone. I even asked for recommendations but she didn't provide any. hmm.

 

That sucks they've changed their policy!

Good news ladies, I just spoke to Rebecca & since she said I booked my wedding in 2009 for May 2010, that I would not have to pay the fees. Woo hoo! I also kept my emails where I inquired about outside vendors & she never mentioned anything, so ladies keep them emails!

Rebeca must of gotten a ton of emails- I also emailed her and I am so glad I booked early and in 2009 so the fees do not apply to me either....that made my day! What a relief!

Now we just need to make sure to save all our emails/correspondence with Rebeca... just in case. =)

    • 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?
