Congrats on setting the date and choosing Dreams! I am currently working with Patty Jordan from Wright Travel Agency (official TA for BDW). She has been absolutely wonderful and very promp with responses. Essentially after contacting Patty and deciding on Dreams, she requests a group contract from Travel Impressions. We are booking 10 rooms (6 room minimum for a 'group') and once signing the contract, we were responsible for putting down a $1,000 deposit to secure the rooms. Once your guests contact the TA and commit to a room, they will then put down a $100 deposit per person and your original deposit will go towards the cost of your room instead. With this promotional contract, you are still eligible for the complimentary wedding package at Dreams. Also 1 free VIP room upgrade per 10 paid rooms; and 1 "complimentary" room per 6 rooms booked -- the complimentary room is a credit you will received after returning from your trip.
Hope this helps! I definately recommend a TA.
Hello everyone! I feel like I already know you all from reading the forum. We just decided on Dreams Palm for our Jan 2013 wedding :-) SUPER excited. Thank you all for the information thus far that has helped us feel great with this decision. I do have a question perhaps someone can help me with....
- How is everyone working out a group rate/payment (if you don't mind me asking)? We are looking at 20-30 people and it seems as though the only way to get our room free/upgrades is to book and pay for the whole thing at once. We are very uncomfortable with asking guests to pay us back personally for their rooms but I also hate to miss our on our free rooms. Any input/suggestions would be extremely appreciated. Does a TA get us the free rooms without us paying? Does anyone have a good TA they recommend?
