  1. Hi everyone! Well since I first wrote this post I have found out some info. Maura you are completely right (although I hoped you weren't). A catholic priest WILL ONLY perform the ceremony in a church. An outside ceremony WILL NOT HAPPEN! I spoke with Yarai and we are going to have a nondenominational minister perform the ceremony, but we are going to do some readings and stuff so it "appears" more catholic. My mom was ok with it...so its settled! Whew! Thanks for everyones help!
  2. I know its a hard situation but ...you can't be worried about everyone else. The people that WANT to go, will be there. I sent out STDs and many people responded yes that I never thought, and some people I assumed would go are not coming. Either way, I totally understand. It is a lot of money, and in the end Matt and I, and our immediate family are most important. Everyone else is just a bonus! I feel your pain though...it's a happy time and you get bummed out when people find things to complain about! I am the first in my family to do a DW, so I am in the same exact spot. I am trying my best just to tume the complainers out!
  3. I have not delt with Yessica at all, but maybe you can switch to Yarai. Is that allowed?? I have been planning with Yarai over e-mails, and it takes her about a day, tops 2 days to return an e-mail. She is awesome! Whenever I write an e-mail I just write "Attention:Yarai" in the subject. They probably would prefer you didn't WC hop, but if you feel dissatisfied...go for it! Good luck!
  4. ok... a booze cruise at a wedding is awesome! Yet again I am going to be totally TACKY....how much is it per person approximately, and what company did you use? If you don't want to answer ..I understand. THanks!
  5. EWWWwww - could you imagine making out with an OLD Ass man like Hugh? OMG that is SO gross! LOL!! YUCK! EWWWWWW!!!!!!! That is so gross! Im sorry I know she said she loved him...but that just cannot be hot. I feel gross just writing about it.....GROOSSS!!!!!
  6. I am so sorry to hear about your mom's dog! Losing a pet is definately like losing a friend. My mom's dog passed away about 11/2 years ago and she still is waiting to get another. First she needed time to grieve, then she started to go on with everyday life without a pet. She is just starting to want another dog. It takes time, and energy to get a new pet. I would feel her out first before you get one for her. Although it is very thoughtful of you, she might not be ready.
  7. Hi everyone. So I am still trying to plan something to do with my guests Wednesday night when they all arrive. As you know, throughout the wedding planning process everything seems to be a couple hundred dollars....and soon my budget is thrown out the window. What group welcome activities is everyone planning? And not to be tacky (but I am) ..how much did it approximately cost? I want to plan something fun (and most likely revolving around drinking..haha). Any ideas?
  8. Just a question...why is everyone doing centerpieces at home and bringing them? I just got an e-mail from my WC at DReams. She gave me some ideas (which sound beautiful) and they seem fairly priced. Each one is only going to be $30. So I am having like 5 tables. I think $150 for everything is good, and I don't have to carry anything, or ship anything before hand which can be expensive. Why are so many doing it on their own?
  9. Ok..I can finally see the pictures! I love both dresses. They look beautiful on you. BUT the first one is .....AMAZING! Don't get me wrong they are both gorgeous and you look gorgeous in them, but the first one..WOW! It is so unique and unlike nothing I have ever seen. It's one of those dresses that you have to just stare at and admire. Good luck!
  10. hey...I tried to view the pictures of the dresses on photobucket and I can't get to them...HELP!
  11. I am so sorry! As they say one door closes and another one opens. At least you can fimnd comfort that you found out now instead of a month from now, or even a year from now. You are definately too good for him. One day he is going to kick himself in the ass for letting you go. Stay strong!

It's not fair that he tells you who you can & can't tell. This is extremely emotional time & you need your family's support! Remember, ultimately it's YOU & YOUR KIDS (period). Be strong. Have faith. You are young and beautiful and you have your ENTIRE life ahead of you!!!!! God put you on this earth for bigger and better things!!!!! You call the shots!! Right on! I second that!
  13. Quote: Originally Posted by xoxo1441 I definately feel both your headaches! I have done TONS of research. That is correct, that priests will only do it pretty much in an actual Catholic Church. There a couple cute Catholic Churches in the town of Cabo-so you can have your ceremony there and then reception at Dreams? Or you can do what I am doing....since I want to feel and have that "wow factor" of walking down to my fiance who is waiting for me.....I am going to have a symbolic ceremony at Dreams, on the beach (So, doesn't mean anything in regards to religion or law) then reception. EH THEN...go home and a few weeks later or something I am going to have an intimate ceremony, legit Catholic ceremony at my parish church. And then have a cocktail/appetizer party for people that couldn't come to Cabo! So, it is up to you what order you do things, or how...Don't forget that if you do the Catholic stuff here, you need to sign up for Precanon classes way in advance with your priest. Sorry lots of stuff, but I know exactly what STRESS you are going through!!! I had a feeling this was going to be the answer. I think it's time to sit mom down for a chat! Thanks for the info.
  14. Hey all! Has anyone gotten married by a Catholic Priest at Dreams? My mom really wants me to use a catholic officiant rather than a nondenominational one. I am getting married at the gazebo on 07/10/09. Yarai my planner said that a priest will only do the ceremony in certain places and times. How does this work? Why do I think this is going to be the one thing that causes me stress!URG!

How big is your wedding party? and how far along with planning are you? I'd love to chat more Sophie My wedding party is just my 2 sisters as maid and matron of honor, 2 nieces as jr. bridesmaids, and my FI's bro and best friend as best men. I just started really planning recently, and I have gotten a lot done I think. I finally just started talking to Yarai at DReams to plan colors and stuff. (well it's only been 2 emails so far, but hey its something) Are you having a reception at home when you get back? I am in August when we get back. I have that place booked, and got flowers, but thats it. I feel like we have so much time, but I guess its gonna breeze by. Hows your planning going?

  17. I CANNOT believe you are still going through this. It's not fair that he is changing his mind. Maybe you should go back to the original plan and ask him to leave for a bit. It will give him space to "decide" (which is complete bullshit in my eyes). He needs to get his act together and be mature about all this. How are your kids? Do you think they can sense something is up? Him not wanting to tell your parents is wierd. He really has no idea what he wants, until he opens up to you, its like everything is on hold. I really feel for you. You shouldnt be going through this. Good luck! BIG HUG!
  18. Welcome! I am a Dreams Los Cabos bride too! I am getting married July 10th...you?
  19. EWWW Chriss Angel! He's the one that was dating Cameron Diaz as he was still married! Not that dating someone that has 2 other girlfriends is my thing, but Chriss Angel is definately NOT a step up! Upgrade Holly! By the way though...I just got my US weekly (yes I said that), and it has a whole article that its not true!

I have already gotten so many ideas, and had so many questions answered from reading the posts here, and I am looking forward to reading more of them. I will leave you with my wedding details: I am marrying Matt, who is an officer in the Marine Corps, and we got engaged June 1st of this year, right before he deployed. He will be back in February, and is very excited that our wedding is going to be in Cabo! We live in San Diego, and have never been to Cabo, but I have been to Cancun and Cozumel. We have reserved our date and want to have our ceremony on the bottom part of the cascade terrace, and the reception on the top part. (The gazebo was already taken) We are expecting about 30 guests from California, Michigan, Florida, and Virginia. I was wondering how people found flights for their guests, and how expensive they were. So far, what I have found has been quite expensive! Other than that...I am currently in the process of selecting vendors, and doing some of the detail work for the wedding. I already bought my dress, and ordered the STD magnets today! I am so excited!!! It's nice to meet you all!! Talk with you soon Hi Kara I am getting married July 10, 2009 to my Matt. I booked the gazebo and Oceana Terrace for the reception. Other than that Ive been a pretty lazy bride. Now that I am thinking about it...maybe I'll FINALLY emial my WC. Ive been meaning to do it all week. Congrats and welcome!
  21. I am doing the Ultimate Package. I've read a lot of reviews and it seems split. I guess it depends what your looking for. I am doing it because I didnt want to do many outside vendors. I hear so many great things about DReams, so why try and change something thats already great. It's definately personal preference.
  22. I am so sorry you have to go through this. I agree with everyone, he is probably just stressed. Although, it isnt an excuse for him to do this to you....or your kids. He better start talking soon! Good luck. Remember we are all here for you.
  23. I just sent out my invitations yesterday. Our wedding is 9 months away but whoever wants to go has to put down a deposit by January. I am so happy you guys wrote this so I know what to expect (hopefully not) and what my repsonse will be. It is unbelievable how people invite other people to your wedding. I know its their vacation too, but they should understand it's your wedding. People should be more respectful of what this is about. This is the type of conversation that makes me drink! URG people make me so annoyed!
