Dreams Cabo Wedding Review

Recommended Posts

Ok, first off I really want to say thank you to the BDW forum. I gained so much valuable information on this forum and my wedding would never have been the same without it.

 

I got married at Dreams on July 22nd. It was amazing! It was a very intimate wedding with only 12 guests.

 

Flights/Shuttle - American Airlines. We got to the airport and our flight had been canceled. They got us on a direct flight to Cabo through Alaska. Excellent! We used Olympus Tours for our shuttle and they were on time, waiting for us. No problems getting back either. A+ for both services.

 

Sunrider Dinner Cruise - B-. I gave Sunrider a B- because the food was excellent. The cruise itself started out fun, but about 1.5 hours into it there were lots of drunken teenagers puking off the side of the boat and falling down the stairs. It was more like a booze cruise, which wasn't really my thing. Also, we didn't really get to see the beautiful Cabo sunset...not sure if we just weren't in the right spot or what. I kind of wish we had put up the extra cash and went on the Caborey. Oh well.

Flowers - A+ I used Florenta Flower Design. Lola was wonderful to work with and I felt her prices were reasonable. I sent her photos of what I wanted and she delivered. I really really loved my flowers. After the wedding I had them all delivered to my room cheesy.gif. The flowers were fresh and exactly what I had wanted. I got a brides bouquet, 2 huge ceremony arrangements, 4 table arrangements and 2 boutonniers. Lola also came to Dreams couple days before the wedding to confirm what I wanted and to go over the final details.

Thanks Lola!

 

Dreams - A+ The resort was gorgeous. We had a Governor's Suite which was fabulous and overlooked the main pool. The room was always clean, and we joked about how our cleaning lady was a ninja...I swear every time we came back to our room, it had been tidied up again. The wait and barstaff were so accomodating and we never felt pressured to tip, although we always did. The all inclusive food did get a bit old after a week, but hey, it was free. Himitsu was our favorite place to eat by far. I didn't like Portofino. The Italian food there was terrible, however the surf and turf there was yummy. The swim up bars are awesome, and they even have tables so you can have snacks/drinks inside the pool! Excellent!

 

Ceremony & Reception - A+ John Fagan did an amazing job as officiant. The flowers were perfect, there was a slight breeze, everything was set up exactly how I had hoped.

 

Yarai/Dreams Wedding Coordinator - A++++ Yarai was awesome. She was always responsive to emails and was super duper helpful along the entire way. She made sure everything was set up exactly how I wanted and made sure everything went smoothly. She was just so fabulous to work with.

 

Hair/Makeup - B+ I got my hair/makeup done through SunMex. Octavio was the stylist. I guess there had been some miscommunication and he thought he was doing a trial session. After I told him I was happy with it, he said great and started to pack up, LOL! I was like, no...TODAY is my wedding! He freaked out a bit because he didn't have any spray or anything, but was able to borrow some from the salon. When he first did my makeup, I looked like a Pussycat Doll...seriously. I asked him to make more bridal and to tone down the eye makeup, and I was happy with it in the end.

Photography/Jonilyn Photography - A. Jonilyn is a photographer out of LA. I don't have my photos back, but I was amazed with our engagement photos, and I know the wedding ones will be fabulous. I didn't give her an A+ because she missed her flight to photograph our civil ceremony at City Hall. She had a family emergency, but was able to find a local photographer to shoot it for us. She was professional, fun and just a pleasure to work with.

 

I don't have any of our professional photos back, but here are a couple that my sister took. She left her camera in her room right before the ceremony (GAH!) so I don't have any ceremony pics yet sad.gif

We had it at Pinata Terrace, and I'm glad we did because there was absolutely no breeze over by Oceana Terrace.

You looked beautiful!!!!! I LOVE your dress.

 

I also LOVE your hair and the flower in your hair is awesome. Did Lola provide the flower for your hair? I am also having Lola do my flowers. She is so nice, I am glad to hear/see her flowers are great.

Lola did not provide that flower. I purchased the flower from Etsy.

    • i was 100% happy with my cake! it was the most amazing cake and when i travel down again i will be requesting a smaller size cake than the one she made me for my 25th anniversary renewal.  I did everything by FB messanger and Paypal! she is on point with her cakes and running her business! I give her 5 Stars and then some! Thank you for making my day amazing!
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
