    So i've only just started planning for my big day in Fall/2009! I really got my mind set on a Cabo wedding. Dreams Cabo is beautiful, but also pricey. Did anyone else do research on other hotels (preferrably all-inclusive as well) that came in as a closes second that may have been cheaper than Dreams?

    Right now - we can handle costs for at least for the wedding party - but I want to have a back-up in the case that we want to subsidize some of the costs for our guests. Any suggestions would be helpful!

      I would use the "search" button on the other resorts in Cabo, their is a ton of information on the forum.

        I know the RIU hotels are all-inclusive, but some girls did not like them, but others loved them so I would ask for more opinions. The only thing I know is thet Dreams is well known and probably worth the price. At least that is what I'm hoping because I'm getting married there.

          What a gracious bride you are! Wow, well, my guests and wedding party are all staying at the Riu Los Cabos. They recently opened the Riu Santa Fe which is better for the budget conscious and it's beautiful..also close to downtown Cabo (Dreams is a good 20 minute drive from town).
          You could also consider a non-all inclusive like the Finesterra. It's in a great location, very nice but still easy on the pocketbook.

            This might not be what you're looking for, but my FI and are getting married on the rooftop of the Casa Contenta Bead and Breakfast. It's located at Land's End and has breathtaking 360 degree views of Cabo San Lucas. We rented out the entire place for a week at an awesome rate and are putting up our wedding party there. It's not right on the water, but fairly close and has pools and jacuzzi's and will make for a very memorable experience.

              For what I learned in my past 10 years living in Cabo, is that Cabo San Lucas hotels are more expensive than San Jose del Cabo ones. So if you're looking is for an all inclusive check Royal Solaris or Presidente Intercontinental in San Jose. They also have wedding packages and maybe they can adjust to you and your guests’ budget.
              There is also a small boutique hotel in downtown San Jose “El Encanto” perfect for small weddings. You should check it out. The web page it’s not working but check trip advisors review. Everytime we’ve worked with them, the brides seem to fall in love at first sight with the place. They have a little chapel inside the hotel so might be what you’re looking for.

              Let me know if there is something else I can help.

              Good luck and happy planning!

                I also second the El Encanto Inn. I am getting married there next April and have visited there twice before and can tell you it is absolutely beautiful and has the cutest chapel on the property. It is very intimate and romantic if that is what you are looking for, much more so than those big resorts! Best of luck in your planning!

                  I am getting married at the Riu Sante Fe in Oct. I also looked at dreams, but beacause of cost and location we chose the sante fe. I have been very pleased so far.

                    Hi! I had the same issue-really wanted dreams, still do, but due to cost for guests went with the Riu Palace which is beautiful. I have read mixed reviews about the wedding coordinator but over all I think it will all be great! check it out...
