  1. We went in 2011. LOVED IT. Moorea we stayed at the Sofitel and had a beach bungalow which was perfection. On Bora Bora we stayed at the Intercontinental Thalasso and stayed in an overwater bungalow (I think that's all they have there anyway). It was all fab and I wouldn't change a thing (other than I wish we could have stayed longer!) I'd skip Tahiti if you can. Just fly in there and then fly right to Moorea.
  2. For anyone who has been to French Polynesia - do you really think the overwater bungalow is worth the extra cost? I read that some of the garden bungalows come with private pools...that sounds almost as romantic, for like half the cost. Any opinions on this?
  3. Hi Dreams brides! Hope your planning is going well - just wanted to check to see if there were any questions I could help with We had our reception at the Oceana Terrace and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's definitely more of a private feeling and almost feels like you're in the back of your own little villa. It's awesome. We had the light-up trees too, but kinda by accident - I just told my furniture guy to do some lighting, and that's what we arrived to see. It looked stunning and really added to the luxurious vibe I think. I highly recommend Oxten for any furniture/lighting/dance floors. For photog - I used Fer Juaristi and LOVED HIM. He isn't local to Cabo, but he is from Mexico so his travel rates may be cheaper than flying in someone from the US or Canada. Don't stress over anything, seriously, these people are professionals and know what they are doing! Just communicated what you want to them, and they'll get it done. I promise.
  4. My ceremony was on the beach and it was set up like Erika described. You could hear the music no problem!
  5. I'm not sure on the exact breakdown of the lighting cost because we added that last minute, but it was done externally through Oxten. I don't know if Dreams does any lighting like that on their own. Are you bringing in any extra furniture or anything? If so, lighting is probably pretty cheap to throw in. The overhead lanterns were all through Dreams.
  6. Don't stress Proti. I had never been to Dreams before I had my wedding there, and we had a lot of picky guests, and EVERYONE loved it. Planning a wedding there was a breeze and it was even more beautiful than I ever expected. You're in good hands!
  7. I've been to a ceremony before where we had to stand, and to be honest I wasn't really fond of it. The ceremony wasn't that long but it just isn't all that comfortable to stand and watch someone get married. I kept looking at the lucky few that did have a seat, and wished I was one of them. Instead of paying attention to the wedding. If it's the only option, I guess you'll have to make that call, but as someone who has been to a wedding like that, I didn't speak all that highly of it. Just giving my 2 cents!
  8. Holy crap Angela! I can't believe it's your time! You really covered all your bases here...your guests will love everything you've put together. And of course I of all people LOVE your dress You are going to be a gorgeous bride and Tim will die when he sees you come down the aisle! Have a fantastic time, enjoy Dreams, and I can't wait to hear about it all when you come home! xo!
  9. Carly I'm so glad your experience was great! I'm still debating about getting this done...I really want to, but I just feel like our money needs to go to other places right now. You made me feel so much better about the pain/uncomfort though...good to know it's not that bad. Enjoy your new eyes! LOL Rachel, you're too funny
  10. Have you considered just using a day of co-ordinator, and booking all of the vendors yourself? I did all of my planning, but I used Amy at Fiestas Los Cabos for my day-of-coordination and she did a great job. It also helped keep the costs down. Just a suggestion!
