    shorn, i debated between the dreams resorts and now jade as well. it all came down to price for the guests.  Dreams tends to be a lot more expensive, even though it has basically the same amenities as the now resorts.  And since they're all owned by the same company now, I figured they all have great customer service.  And i think the Dreams Resorts do up to 5 weddings a day, whereas Now limits it to two a day max.

      I received an email and a phone call on Saturday. I was out of town and missed the call but both were because Pilar is now on Facebook and saw some previous posts of mine about time delay in responses and she wanted to address my dissatisfaction with the service. I responded to her last night. I am going to call her to get this resolved as since I was transfered back to her she has been much better at answering my questions. She did say that she was out of town last week for a wedding conference so this could be why she has not responded yet. She is trying to catch up i guess.

        I was just wondering since most of you have already negotiated with Pilar or Ana...I was wondering if anyone asked about the Bamboo/brown chairs for the ceremony.  There's a picture on the website that has the chairs in their set up.  I was hoping to use those but wanted to know how much extra they would be. 

         

        Thanks for your help. :) 

         

        Hi Hanna!!!! 


        Pilar told me the brown chairs are $7 plus tax and the white chairs are $9 per chair plus tax. I'm thinking going with either the white or brown chairs rather than using the chair covers myself.

            thanks!!


            I am now in the same boat with you! My travel agent introduced me to Dreams Riviera Cancun and now I am having trouble deciding between the two. Both are on Facebook, by the way, and I like that people have posted their own pictures of these resorts on the facebook pages. It kind of gives you reassurance that, yes, these places are as beautiful as the commercial pictures on the website. There is also a wedding discussion thread on both of the facebook pages that is informative.

             

            I guess it will come down to which is most affordable for my guests. Do any of you have any tips on how the guests can get the best rates?

              FutureMrsHolt, I can't wait to see more pictures when she gets back!!

               

              I sent Ana an email yesterday asking about entree choices. I would like to be able to offer my guests two options, since some of them don't eat meat and others don't eat seafood/fish. Has anyone else asked the WCs about this?

                    No but that is a fantastic idea. I did mention to them that my aunt was allergic to seafood and they said they would give her a different dish. I am not sure if I am remembering correctly but i think they wanted to charge me $3 change fee or something but I am not sure about this so i would ask. If you are having 50 people of more i think you can do a buffet style and then there are several choices.

                      I asked Pilar about the menu options and you have to chose one for the whole party. I'm not down with that!

                       

                      Thanks Lisa for the info! I guess posting on the Facebook works! Let us know what she says!
