    Hi Everyone, I'm a Newbie!

    I'm getting married in Cabo San Lucas but I'm not sure exactly where yet. My top choices are the Imperial Suite at Fiesta Americana, Casa Del Mar, or Dreams. My guests will be staying at the Riu and we're aiming for the first week of November, 2009. Feel free to contact me with any tips about the above locations, I need all the help I can get!

      Welcome!

      I just was married at the Fiesta america imperial suite and we (me and guests )stayed at dreams. Both were absolutely AMAZING!!!

      I am curious though if all of your guests are staying at RIU why would you consider Dreams for your wedding?

      I only ask because you will have to pay a day pass for each wedding guest who isn't staying at Dreams and they are $85 each...maybe you are already aware of this...but if you are willing to pay that much...you might as well pay a little extra for the imperial suite!!! It's so private and beautiful and worth it... :)

          Well the AI prices at Dreams are so much higher than at the Riu, and I'm trying to keep the costs down for our guests (plus the cheaper it is, the more friends will be able to attend). Plus I've also heard that the Riu is a bit more of a party place than Dreams (I've been to the Riu and had a great time, but I haven't been to Dreams yet), and our guests will definitely be filled with partiers. If I could get Dreams for the same/similar price as the Riu for my guests, I would definitely consider it!

          You're right though...$85 per guest might add up to $4500 quicker than I think! Hmmmm....

            I have not been to the RIU but they do have a club there I guess and it's a lot larger and cheaper...

            Dreams is abolutely beautiful...smaller and perfect...but you are right if you have alot of partiers that want to dance at night and stuff then maybe riu is better for them to stay at. But if they are okay with stay up late and drinking in the bar area then Dreams is fine...but it's not extremely lively.

            Have you checked out the RIU's wedding facilities?

              I've checked it somewhat...but I don't want to have the reception at the Riu. I don't love the look of it, and also, I want something different for my guests. I want the wedding to be different from every other night that we're there, know what I mean? Plus I'd rather have it somewhere where it's a little bit more private. I know it's so much cheaper to do it there, but....

                I understand completely!! I actually had thought of that point prior (having something different for our guests) but afterward that is what my husband said...I'm glad we did it somewhere else too because then everyone got to have some different food other than what they had been eating during their trip and it was nice to get off the resort!!

                  Exactly! Figuring out the finances of it all is going to be a pain though! But totally worth it.
