    Does anyone know if taxes and gratuities are included in the reception fee @ Dreams?

      Yes, your taxes and gratuities are included in the price at Dreams. The 2007 prices were $22 per person for each set up and that is all I was charged. You can give the waiters a tip if you feel they did a good job. I had an envelope ready with money in it to give them, but I left it in the room when I went down for the ceremony and forgot to give it to anyone the next day. I'm sure they got paid something out of the $44 per person I paid the resort for the set-up fees:) At least I hope they did....

        I can't remember getting charged additional taxes for my ceremony/reception. And, there is not an additional gratuity fee, but I did tip each waiter at the end of the night. I really wasn't planning to do this, but the waiters at my reception were so awesome I gave them $30 each. They were so much fun- they kept the drinks flowing, passed out my favors and glow-necklaces to everyone (while wearing them themselves!), got everyone doing shots, danced with us on the dancefloor. They really went above and beyond, in my opinion. In addition, I had specifically requested 2 of them that I'd gotten to know over the week, so I was really happy they were there. Like I said, I wasn't planning to tip and had I had more $$ on me I probably would have given them more. They were great...

            Thanks for the info. I just didn't want to be surprised when I got the final bill at the end of my stay at dreams! Was there anything else that you girls could think of that wasn't told to you upfront, or were they good at being straightforward and itemizing everything beforehand so that there would be no surprises when it was time to pay?
