Dreams Cabo Questions

Recommended Posts

Ok for the life of me I can't find the thread that was started for all the Dreams Cabo brides, so I'm posting here. (Sorry). I have some questions that I hope everyone can help me with:

 

1. Does Dreams allow outside cakes? My FI and I don't like cake so we wanted to get cupcakes but I don't know if they allow outside vendors for cake. If they do, does anyone know if there is a cake cutting fee?

 

2. When you do a room block how much do you have to put down? I know that once people start booking rooms they will use the money towards your other stuff but I was wondering, if you block too many rooms and people don't book and use the room, do you lose your money? Or if you put down more money than you end up using towards your fee at Dreams will they refund you the money?

 

3. I know I have over a year to think about this but I was wondering. I know a lot of people bought water bottles for their OOT bags. Do you think I should even bother buying water bottles for OOT bags if the Dreams provides the guests with bottled water in their fridges anyway?

 

4. Does anyone know if the WC at dreams has aisle runners to rent? If so do you know how much they cost?

 

Thank you for all your help.

hi glenda! here are my answers:

1) we are bringing in an outside cake (got it thru jennifer hatton cakes in cabo - delicious!). she charges for the cake but dreams is not charging us. we got dreams to reduce the price of our reception dinner by $2 since we are eliminating the dessert course and bringing in our own.

2) i got my room block thru tammy host. she can help you with this question - depends on how many rooms you get and the going rate.

3) we are doing OOT bags but withOUT water. there is bottled water in the room and also you can get it from any bar / restaurant around the premises.

4) i think maye did quote me for an aisle runner, i will look up the price for you. we are having our ceremony on the sand with rose petals as our runner.

hope this helps!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Jen!!! I am also using Tammy so she'll probably answer the room block question for me when I do end up doing it. Your wedding is coming up so soon, I am so excited for you!!!

Or if you put down more money than you end up using towards your fee at Dreams will they refund you the money? usually $100-200 per room, yes the will credit your cc back for what you do not use.

Do you think I should even bother buying water bottles for OOT bags if the Dreams provides the guests with bottled water in their fridges anyway? no water for OOT bags because it is in the fridge for free

 

4. Does anyone know if the WC at dreams has aisle runners to rent? If so do you know how much they cost? i used rose petals

 

Thank you for all your help.

Glenda,

I had the same question about the isle runner.. I haven't gotten that far on planning, but saw somewhere, someone had colored sand (my ceremony is on the beach). I thought that would be cool, but heavy to transport.

 

How would an isle runner on the sand work? wouldn't the fabric just get tangled under your feet, ala a beach towel?

Glenda, you might ask Dreams if they can do cupcakes for you instead of cake. I'm having them do my cake because it will be much cheaper (we're small so we'll only end up spending about $50 for the cake for the 8 or so people over the 10 limit). I don't remember how big your wedding is, so it might be cheaper to have Dreams do them. When I was talking to Mariana, she told me to e-mail pictures of what I wanted and she'd see if they can do it, so you never know, maybe they can do cupcakes too!

    • 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
