  1. on the day pass thing....my dad and 2 other guests did not stay at Dreams. I had originally asked if they could waive the fee for my dad (he has a condo and lives in Cabo 6 months out of the year, and he was paying for the darn thing) and Yarai told me she would have to check on it, but it should be no problem. I never mentioned the other guests who were not staying there (and they came over to Dreams 3 nights). I was not charged a guest fee - I kind of did the don't ask, don't tell thing.
  2. Jess - Orignally I had Marco, however he became unavailble about 2 months prior to the wedding, so his brother Jorge did our ceremony. Jorge did an amazing job. I met Marco when I was in Cabo for my site visit. We already had made the switch to his brother, but he called my room after he finished a wedding to see if we were there. We were, so we went down and met him - he was very nice and very personable, and I thought it was so sweet of him to still want to meet us even though he was not perfroming our ceremony.
  3. Jess we did ours at Chileno bay. I see that someone already suggested it and you were going to google it, it was great! Lots of different back drops and only a 5 min drive from Dreams. It is a "locals" beach and croweded on the weekend (we did ours on a Saturday), so I would suggest doing your shoot on a weekday if you choose that location.
  4. Great Review Melinda! Everything sounds wonderful! I will say this with regards to Mango...I agree with Melinda, I think my group shots stink. It was windy on the beach and they had everyone looking into the sun, so you can imagine how our pics turned out - windblown and squinty eyed! I feel like they should have said - hey, the hotel has some great architechture (we got married at Dreams) lets go take some group shots in the hotel. They are professional photographers right?? I also have the same complaint about them choosing the photos that get turned black and white - if you are
  5. Taxi vans depart at 10:00, so if your reception is over at 10:30 (the standard time) you will miss it....Desires is a good option for after the wedding. Its on the property so if you want to go change or just freshen up you can go up to your room and take your time and do so. Thats what we did and it was nice for Bill and I to finally have a few moments to ourselves. Then we went down to Desires and joined the rest of our group. The place is kind of small, so its like your reception continues without the parents and those who are done for the night.
  6. They do the pub crawl on Wednesdays and Saturdays and it was $20 per person. This covered transportation to and from Cabo and cover charges into the bar and depending on the place there was maybe a "welcome" shot.
  7. Jess - the fire dancer was a last minute thing. First, let me say that I have seen the pics and read the reviews on this site that everyone says DO IT, it was AWESOME!!! Well it just wasn't in our budget. We were talking to one of the guys from the Dreams Entertainment Team (Miguel - We had met him on our site visit and then my step kids loved him when they went to the kids camp during the day) about the wedding and he mentioned that he would do a 5-8 minute fire show for $45 dollars!! Compared to the other prices I had seen on here, I knew it was a steal! I asked Yarai about it,
  8. Squid Roe is very popular and can be very fun, however it gets VERY crowded and A LOT of locals go there. Every time I have been there, if I didn't have any of my guy friends around me, I was getting touched and grabbed by drunk local guys... Next door to Squid Roe is a newer bar called Mandala. I LOVE that place. I live in Southern California and that club is very LA-ish. Light up dance floor inside, rooftop bar and light-up dancfloor up there as well, cabanas which you can rent with bottle service... my birthday was the day after the wedding and Dreams offered a Pub Crawl that ni
  9. Marco - Thank You! That is very sweet! We missed you, however you left us in good hands...Jorge did a great job! We hope you enjoyed your trip as you received you much deserved award! xoxo Deanna and Bill

Additionally, she forgot to put our funnel out, so I didn't know how we were going to get the sand in. We each just poured one layer for show- it took a long time - and then we were done with it.

Question about trash the dress shoots in Cabo .... is there ANYWHERE where you can actually get into the ocean where it's relatively calm for some good photos? I have been to Cabo once and I know people say Lover's Beach but I even found it a little rough over there. Isn't there one swimmable beach somewhere in Cabo? Is it at the Hilton or am I making things up?? Ange Hi Ange! The picture under the gazebo is my absol
  12. Okay Okay....the review is in progress. Its such a PITA to upload everything into photobucket and then cut and copy the image codes into BDW. With that being said, here is the link to some of my pro pics... Picasa Web Albums - MangoWeddings - Deanna+Bill (...
