    I have been spending the last 2 days reading this site! I am torn between Dreams Cabo and Cancun. Are there any Brides out there who had to make the same choice? what are some of the pros and cons. I do like that cancun is swimmable...but they are both gorgeous. I havent been to Mexico....

    HELP!

    PS. my wedding will be small (50 or less).
    in MAY/09
    things that are important to me are:
    everyone having laid back fun
    awesome pools /ocean fun
    not TOO much of a party (spring break) place
    a good coordinator! (still researching!)

    Thanks Everyone!

        You can post wherever you want..I am actually having the same problem! My mom and I are planning on taking a trip there in the next couple weeks to check out both Dreams Cabo and Cancun, I will for sure post pics...Dreams Cancun is where the beach is at, Dreams Cabo does not have a swimmable one, you have to walk to one, Dreams Cancun has that classic blue water...that is about all I know. I spoke to a photographer who is super popular with brides on this site and he said the Dreams Resorts do not attract spring breakers at all, so you don't have to worry about that....Have you set a date yet? I am thinking May 09 as well..

          One more thing, I have read HUNDREDS of bride reviews on this site, since i found BDW site this is pretty much all I have done, which is not good for my job....as I sit at my desk all day and do wedding stuff. I have heard all GREAT things about wedding coordinators at both Dreams Resorts, you will probably read the same.

              That is so crazy! That is exactly when we were thinking! I am having doubts because it is a HOliday weekend and some people on here have said that flights will be more expensive, etc...what do you think?

                i know...but then people might have that extra day off from work which means they could maybe stay an extra day? or we could do it on the sunday instead....i guess i need to talk to a travel agent -you're right -a huge price difference for guests would be awful

                    This may start to read a little something like a famous beer commercial from the eightees:

                    Cabo, CANCUN, CABO,... Cancun..., CABO, CANCUN..., well you get the picture.


                    I think posting in both places would give you a good perspective on different reasons from those who prefer one over the other. My recommendation is to start to make a list of the pros and cons of both to help you come to a decision.
