Dreams Palm Beach Brides 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!!

 

I'm getting married May 2014 at Dreams Palm Beach and so far there are 25 of us going. How is everyone doing with planning? My WC is Vanessa and she's pretty helpful. I'm struggling a little with the schedule of the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception since the latest we can be is 10:30pm. Is anyone else trying to figure out the best schedule so that their guests aren't left wandering around the resort waiting for the reception or cocktail hour to start.?

I'm bringing some of my decor for my May 15, 2014 wedding and I was told that there's a decorating fee if you bring your own decor. I asked my wedding planner if I can choose anything when I get there and she told me that I have to basically choose everything before I get there and that when I do meet with her it is really to just finalize everything. Who's your wedding planner?

I was planning on doing the same thing and bring my own decor to save money. I think its ridiculous to have to pay a fee however. My WC is Christina but I'm still waiting for her to send me a list of all the extras.

After looking at all the decor and little extras I now know how the resort makes money. Everything is a fee. Chairs, charger plates, napkins, rectangular table for reception, cake table overlay. Tea light candles are $5 per tea light (I'm going off memory of what my WC told me in the email but it's something silly). At the end of the day you're still saving at least $10,000 so it's still a great deal but my fiance and I have had to up our budget after realizing the prices for everything.

Exactly the reason why I wanted to purchase all my items here little by little as my day is a year away and ship them to DR. (we have family out there) so how much is this fee for bringing your own decor?

I was quoted up to $500. We are doing beach chic so we are only bringing smaller decor. We're doing guest welcome bags and thought of shipping it to the resort pior to flying out but I'm nervous of items being damaged as they do not accept responsiblity for any missing or damaged items in their disclosure. So I'm asking my close wedding guests to add a little to their luggage hahahaha. I just sent an excel spreadsheet to my WC of all the decor, extras we want for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. I should hear back in a week with the grand total. I'm nervous.

    • 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?
