How windy is Dreams/Cabo?

Recommended Posts

For my outdoor reception, I was envisioning a lot of candles, but I am wondering if will be too windy outdoors for candles.

 

For those of you that had outdoor receptions, how did your candles hold up, and what kind did you use?

 

It would be a bummer to have all kinds of candles and then not be able to keep them lit.

I know a lot of past brides use votive candles with the glass holders and I dont remember a lot of complaints about them. That is what I am planning on doing as well as some big hurricanes with pilar candles which will be protected as well.

Where's your reception being held? We were at Oceana and it wasn't windy at all.. in fact it was hot because there wasn't a breeze. We had glass votives, luminary bags with some sand, and pillars in a vase and floating candles as part of the center pieces.

Hi there...

 

For what I read, your wedding is in July, so don't worry... Believe it or not, Cabo has a weird weather, it's really windy from October through April - May.. Other than that is pretty fair or not even a breeze..

 

Cheers

I have read a lot of reviews that said May was pretty windy.

 

I went there in September and was praying for a breeze to come through to cool us down.

I think it depands on when you go but I wouldnt thing July would be that windy.

How about still having candles but just with a huricane around them.

How does everybody get the hurricanes and votives there? Do you take them in your luggage, ship them, or buy them in Cabo somewhere? I'm worried about going over on the weight of each of my luggage allowances, and would rather buy some of these things there, but if there's a better way that I should know the help and information would be appreciated!! Thanks!

I was just there this past March and there wasn't enough wind to worry about. It was great weather, not too hot. There was a little bit of dampness after sundown. I've been there twice now and each time, the weather has been spectacular. I have to yet to go in July though.

I bought small votives at Michaels that I am bringing down but I am having Dreams provide the hurricanes with the candles...3 of them (different sizes) including candles was $20/table. Way worth it and then you dont have to worry about things breaking in your luggage!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
