Dreams Cabo Wedding Review

Recommended Posts

Thanks so much to everyone on this forum. My wedding happened this past Sunday, and it was absolutely amazing. Hope this wedding review helps you future brides:

 

Friday - Casino night at Dreams

We did this at Barracuda Beach, which is the beach in front of the Oceana pool. The fee for this was about $800 I think, which included 2 poker tables, 2blackjack tables, dealers, and a full bar. This was a good event that gave everyone a place to get together. We didn't have prizes, but the resort gave a bottle of tequila to the biggest winner at each table.

 

Saturday - Sunset Cruise on the Sunrider

The bus arrived on time and the cruise was great. The boat itself was very nice and the guys who work on it made it really enjoyable. However, the bus which was supposed to take us back to the resort came about 1/2 hour later than it was supposed to. I'm not sure why this happened. I had a little bit of a meltdown since I had no cell phone on me, and no phone number of the bus, the hotel, or our wedding coordinator, Maye. Plus we had about 50 people, including 1 infant, all standing around waiting. Nobody else really minded since they were all just talking to each other, but I felt really badly for the wait. I'd recommend taking a cell and having important numbers with you in this situation. We told Maye about it and I think she was really surprised that the bus was not there when it was supposed to be. I don't think this is common, since I haven't read about it happening on this forum, but be prepared just in case.

 

Sunday - Wedding Day

Adriana from Suzanne Morel came in the morning to do hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids. Adriana is really good! She did not speak much English, but the translator was there to help. Plus, I had done a hair trial at their salon with her, so she knew what to do. (Note: Do not take your fiance to the salon for your hair trial unless he doesn't mind sitting in a hot, unairconditioned waiting room for a few hours. We thought there might be places for him to walk around, but there really wasn't.)

 

The fabulous Juan Carlos was our photographer, and we absoutely LOVED him, which I knew we would after reading all the great reviews on this forum. He was very good at giving some direction as to what to do, which we totally needed, since both me and DH are somewhat camera shy. Plus, he blended in perfectly. I can't wait to see his photos! Also, he really pulled through at the end of the night when we couldn't locate the sparklers that I ordered from the wedding coordinator. He happened to have Maye's number and let me call her on his cell. She showed up right away to save the day and bring the sparklers. Those things are the longest sparklers I had ever seen! Totally worth it and a great way to end the night.

 

Our DJ was Francisco (Paco) Davila. He was such a pleasure to work with! I HIGHLY recommend him. Apparently, in addition to doing weddings, he DJ's at the Mango Deck, so he knows how to get people out on the dance floor. His prices were far more reasonable than some of the other DJ's I contacted. In fact, Dreams was going to charge me 2 set up fees if I wanted to rent speakers from them to play my iPod (I think each set up was $200, so it would have been $400). It was not that much extra $ to get a DJ, but it was definitely worth it IMO. Francisco was fantastic.

 

Mariana was our wedding coordinator at Dreams and Maye Cortinas was the coordinator that we hired from outside. Maye was very nice and took care of the sunset cruise, transportation, flowers, petal cones, and sparklers. The centerpieces looked great (drowned orchids), but the bouquets of roses didn't seem the freshest. Maybe this was because my wedding was on a Sunday? Mariana was such a sweet person to work with. I had a bunch of last minute requests and she took care of everything with no problem at all. She was SO good! The hanging lanterns, which we got through Dreams, gave such a nice ambiance. We also lit the underneath of each table, but I wouldn't recommend it. You could hardly tell they were lit since it was pretty bright. The luminaries looked good. I brought the white paper bags and tea lights with me, and there was no charge for Dreams to set them up.

 

Hope that helps!

I'm holding my bouquet during the ceremony since I totally forgot to give it to my maid of honor. Nobody mentioned it to me during the wedding rehearsal, so it totally slipped my mind.

 

Also, I used a frame for the sand ceremony, and I was hoping that I could transport it back home in tact, but that didn't happen. The sand got all distorted. There's a possibility that TSA checked it (it was in my check in luggage). I'm still glad we did the sand ceremony though.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
