Dreams Huatulco are there anymore brides?
Posted 03 January 2009 - 05:10 PM
I hope everyone is doing well. I am needing a little advice/help. My fiancee and I want to have our rehersal dinner off site. Has anyone been down there and knows any local restaurants that could fit a wedding party of 12?
Also, I am not sure how this photographer thing works. Can anyone clarify this for me? Are we given a list of names when we get there and then we just choose one? We are not interested in finding one out here in Calgary and then flying them down because the hidden costs and small print of this wedding are starting to drive me insane (sorry, just needed to vent). Can anybody help me make sense of this photographer thing?

His name is Fabian Lasala, he is in the huatulco area and very reasonable. Check out his websites and you can make up your mind from there! We still keep going back and forth b/w him and bringing a guy from canada with us. I love his price but Im just nervous of the quality of the prints. If you want more info on him let me know.

I am not much help on the restaurants since I haven't been there yet....
One question I have - has anyone had any contacts with any florists? Thanks!

I just received some pictures of the gazebo area and a couple of the beach that I will try attaching. The gazebo looks very pretty and not a 'typical gazebo'. I think its too small for my wedding though

So I contacted the photographer, Fabian (I think that's his name?) and he was totally reasonable and free on our date and I was ok with his portfolio. I am just waiting for Anel (or whoever at the resort) to get back to me on whether he is the official hotel photographer, and if not, what is the cost to having him onsite for the day. The package we chose also includes some photography, so I am not sure how the whole thing works.
I know that once we get down there everything will be fine, but we are trying to keep our guests somewhat informed and not having any information is becoming frustrating!! augh!

So Fabian is the official hotel photographer. So that is all under control, thank goodness. I checked out the pics on trip advisor as well as some sent to me from the resort and we originally chose the gazebo, but our party is too large now, and we also decided that the beach is more our style. So that is another decision made!
We are now just getting last minute stuff together. We want to do welcome bags but we are unsure what to put in them and time is seriously running out. Any ideas?
Also, has anyone sent out an email or travel itinerary to their guests? We are getting one together and I just want to make sure I am not missing any details. So far we have information about the restaurants, climate, dress code, passport, wedding info, possible tours/day activites. Am I missing anything?

I found this thread while searching online for information on my upcoming wedding. I am getting married March 2, 2009 (we fly out Feb 27), at the Dreams Resort in Huatulco, Mexico. I have so many questions and am worried about running out of time.
We have our trip booked through my fiance's cousin, and I feel that I can identify with a lot of the feedback here - I haven't had direct communication with the resort, however once my TA got information to me, I found that things needed to be done immediately - ie. we only had about a week or two in July to get our deposits in, after not hearing from the resort for nearly 2 months. And we needed to have the $500 deposit for the actual wedding in the same day I got my contract, with a lot of TBD on it - I still have yet to confirm many details. I find it is taking a long time to get information / hear back from the resort, and I still don't know about flowers, music, time frame etc., however I am supposed to have more info later this week.
We are getting married on the beach, and picked a time of 5 pm - I was told this would give a nice amount of time for daytime and sunset pictures, as the sun sets around 6:10 pm this time of year. We have about 35 ppl, and for the reception have it set for the terrace by the pool, which is right off the beach. I am waiting to hear about setup there, for music etc., is this a nice location for the reception?
Another question I have is about the spa - I want to set up mani/peds, has anyone used the spa services here? My TA has contacted the resort to have it set up ahead of time, but this is something I am still waiting for an answer on.
My fiance was also wondering about deep sea fishing - does anyone know an approx cost, and is this something you book thru the resort / in advance, or is it just done once you get there?
I look forward to hearing from you!
