        Hi Ladies...Great review kimiko!
        I was surprised to read that some of you have not put a deposit down. Claudia told us that if we put 50% down it would lock us into 2007 prices, since we are getting married in 2008. i was under the impression we had to put a deposit down....maybe it's just to lock into the current pricing....hmmm

            In regards to the centerpieces used for the cocktail reception, Dreams provided those.

            Jilly...Daniella simply designed a centerpiece based off the bouquet I chose. This was how they created the boutinnere and corsages as well.

              I believe you have to put down 50% to secure the date! This is what we were told which is why we put the $1200 at the close of our site visit. Dreams cannot guarantee the date in less the money is be secured. For all the Dreams Cancun Ladies, please check on this immediately.

                  Jilly...have you heard back from Claudia or Daniella yet about the deposit?? I was curious because my TA told me that we don't have to pay for anything until we get down there. And then we pay for everything in cash. She told me that our date is already secured and we have nothing to worry about. But ofcourse now i'm worried.

                    My TA told me the same thing, but it still made me nervous, so I talked to Claudia and she told me that if it made me more comfortable I could send 50% and just pay the rest when we get there, which is fine with me. I think it will make me feel better to pay something towards it.

                    She also sent me a contract today and I need to go through it and make changes. A couple of things I noticed:

                    Included in the package, I thought it said a champagne toast for 20, but in the contract it says, 1 bottle of champagne, which serves 4, so what am I supposed to do, either not have a toast or cough up the money for 4 more bottles which are $35 each plus a 15% service fee, okay, I just looked at the packages and it says, "wedding cake and 1 bottle of champagne for 20 guests" obviously 1 bottle isn't enough for 20 ppl, but I think they worded that wrong.

                    Also, I had emailed her a picture a long time ago of a bouquet I wanted, but she said she'd have to get a quote and it would be more money. So, I decided I'd just go with something included. well in the contract she had the pic of the bouquet I wanted, but doesn't have any additional price next to it, so do I just shut my mouth or take the chance that she's going to tack on more money, lol!

                    She has my reception from 6-10, I can't remember how many hours we thought we would get charged extra for, but there were no extra charges on there for that.

                    What I liked about the contract is that it does list out all your options and the prices, like for chair bows, or extra champagne, BM bouquets, etc...

                    I didn't realize before either that you could have cocktail hour and reception in different places (at least thats how it looks on the contract) so I think I might do cocktail hour in the garden and then the reception on the terrace.

                    She also included a charge for the sound system for the ceremony, but we are using our IPOD and docking station, I bought a microphone yesterday, just need to make sure its loud enough (the music is really loud, but want to make sure the mic is too) so watch for that so you don't pay for something you're not using.


                    All in all it looks like she's done a pretty good job keeping things in line with what we want. Now I just have to figure out what we don't need so I can sub in some things we do need!
