    Hey all!


    I am in love with this site!  Anyway, I am awaiting the credit card authorization form so that I can secure my date at Dreams in May 2012.  This is been an exciting and very frustrating experience so far and I have only been planning for a week! 


    You guys are amazing and I have already started gathering so many ideas and advice for the many different aspects that make up this wedding.


    I have been working with TA Teresa and I am pretty sure I have already started getting on her nerves because I send like 5 emails a day. 


    Magda, the WC doesn't seem to be very responsive.  I know they are coming off of a busy month but there are some things I a have asked her to get to me that I need in order to make a final decision about the venue and she hasn't.  She has responded to my emails but she hasn't answered the questions I have asked.


    I have scoured the website and gotten a lot of information but can't seem to find exactly what it is I am looking for.


    So if there are any 2012 Dreams Brides out there, can you answer a few questions for me: 

    1. Are you working with Magda?  If so, is she at times non responsive?

    2. Are any of you doing a la carte with the basic package?  That is my plan but Magda told me that if I do a la carte I can only choose from the basic menu.  I asked her about paying an upcharge to chose from the Gold menu and she said the gold menu is strictly for the Ultimate Package.

    3. Do you guys have an approved vendors list?  I want to go outside for cake, photography and flowers maybe.  I have been looking into some of these vendors and I know that Dreams will charge an outside vendor fee but Magda said there would be no fee if they are on the vendors list, but she didn't give me the list.


    Geez, I am so sorry about how long this got!! And, congrats to all the brides!!!

      Welcome! I was very frustrated when I was trying to get the room blocks & secure my date with the resort as well but I assure you that will go away as soon as that is settled! I have to agree this site is fantastic with all the info & ideas. The to do list keeps getting bigger!!

      I too am using Teresa and am getting married in May! Sorry, I can't help you with your Dreams questions but with my WC it does take at least a few days for her to respond. I think it maybe a Mexico relaxed thing lol! 

      Good luck with your planning! I am sure you will find all the answers you need!

        Aww thanks!  I know that I can be anal somtimes and I know I can be impatient so I'll try to keep both under control.  Good luck with your planning as well!  Have you gotten much done?  I haven't!

        Welcome! At first I was very frustrated when I never got a response to my questions for weeks.  Now I know just to expect it, although those are the kind of answers you want before booking your date!  Good luck with everything!

          Congrats on your engagement! Sorry, I don't have any of the answers your looking for, but I do have a quick list of things I wish I knew a year ago...



          1. Wedding colors are tricky.  I picked hard-to-find colors (coral and teal) and it seems everything comes in more basic colors like light blue, royal blue, navy, purple, pink, orange, green.  Just a thought to consider when choosing colors.
          2. Dance lessons!!!  This has been the MOST fun of preparing to get married.  Expensive…but SO worth it! 
          3. It IS possible to get an amazing but less expensive dress.  Keep searching.
          4. There is a reason people go with traditional bridesmaid dresses…they are easy to match with the rest of the bridal party.  I went with just regular gowns from Nordstrom’s and had to find out the hard way NOTHING comes in that color (coral!!!)
          5. DO NOT write anything about your registry on Save the Dates or Invitations….TACKY!  I thought this was a given (this advice is in every wedding book ever written…), but I’m finding tons of people are making this mistake and it just rubs guests the wrong way.


          Hope this helps!
