New Cabo Dreams bride needs help!
Posted 19 January 2008 - 07:33 PM
After seeing all the stress and planning my sister (aka Bridezilla) went through with her wedding, I was determined to have a DW and was so excited when I booked Dreams.
Now I'm confused and am hoping that you fellow Dream brides can help... call me naive but I thought going into it with the Ultimate Wedding Package I would basically have everything taken care of. Now Yesica (who seems really sweet) is asking me what I'm be doing for a photographer, florist, decorations, cake, music ect. Isn't that included What is and what do I need to book myself?? I feel alittle out of mt league!
Please help... I'm from Canada and it is not likely that I will get a chance to do a site vist and get all this figured our in person.

According to the Dreams website this is what is included in the Ultimate package:
This package includes:
Services of Judge or Minister
Wedding organization and personalization of our wedding coordinator
Preparation and ironing of the wedding dress and grooms tuxedo/suit
Complimentary room for the groom the night before the wedding (based on availability)
Personal dressing assistant
Use of the wedding gazebo located in a romantic setting
Two boutonnieres and corsages for witnesses
Special Gold Wedding Dinner party (for 20 guests staying at the hotel)
Natural floral centerpiece for bride and groom’s dinner table
Natural floral centerpiece for ceremonial table
Wedding cake and sparkling wine for 20 guests
One hour Gold Cocktail party with hors d’oeuvres (for 20 guests staying at the hotel)
Special turn down service
Bride’s hairstyling for ceremony
Make-up application for bride
15% discount on all Spa treatments (Products not included)
50 full color photos and wedding album
Late check-out for bride and groom (based on availability)
Gazebo d©cor - chairs with white covers, ceremonial table & red carpeted walkway
Live Mexican music trio (1 set)
Video of the ceremony (30 min. DVD edited)
Choice from either a Swedish massage, European facial or Salt Glow Body Scrub for two
So, it looks like there are some flowers included but maybe not for the whole ceremony. That's probably what she is referring to, as well as any other decorations you might want.
It seems there is a cake included as well so you might want to ask her about that. There are some brides that want to do their own thing about cakes though.
It does mention 50 photos and photo album but according to their website, photo packages are extra. I'd ask her exactly what's included. You may want to consider using a non-resort photographer though as typically the photo packages that resorts have, don't have that much to offer and the photos are typically more traditional. It all depends on what want with your photos. There are some very talented local photographers that many brides here have hired, and many brides will fly in a photographer they really like from the U.S. That may seem like an expensive option, but many times you can get more for your money even with the cost of travel. Just make sure you check out all your options and see what the resort has to offer, as well as local, and non-local photographers offer.
Good luck and happy planning!!

Jonathan is right.. have Yessica clarify exactly what's included. Keep your emails simple. I found that was the best way to get answers to your questions. Don't freak if it takes awhile to hear back.. some vendors are truly on "Mexican time".
You have plenty of time and truthfully if you wanted to make all your wedding decisions when you get to Mexico.. everything will still turn out perfect!
How many guests are you expecting?
