      We had cocktails, dinner/reception at the Oceana Terrace and there were no guests in or around the pool...I think once people see the staff starting to set up, they get the picture...also, people usually clear the pool area fairly early to get ready for dinner...what pool area are you thinking of having your reception?

        Our ceremony on was on the beach at 6pm and after the cocktail hour everyone went over to Oceana by the small pool. There was no one at the pool the entire time we were over there. I would not worry about it, a few people might walk through but you will never know becuase you have enough going on and enjoying everything!!

          Thanks for the info!!! The larger pool, not sure what terrace that is. The pics on website show that one right on the beach! Did you have yours there??

            I think the only negitive, other than ocean swimming, is ending the party at 10:30-11:00= (
            Were going to try to have the cerimony a little early to leave some time to boogie!

              Dreams Cabo is VERY quiet in the evenings.. everyone is back at their room getting ready or already at the restaurants eating at that time. There will probably be people walking around the resort enjoying themselves but nothing to worry about..

              yes it does suck to end the party so early because time flies by BUT you can continue the party at the lobby bar or out by the fire pit near the lobby bar, go into town to continue the party or just may find yourself exhausted and looking for some alone time with your new hubby! :)

                When I went on a site visit last year I saw a few weddings in both areas, Oceana Terrace (place by the smaller pool) and la Cascada (area near the main pool). Once the staff set up and placed a sign designating that it was a private party, people kinda headed out. Oceana is way more private though if that's what you want.

                I'm having my reception at La Cascada b/c i have a larger group. I don't think there'll be a privacy issue. Plus, I think everyone will be too busy dancing and drinking to even notice!

                  Also, I just noticed that you are planning to get married in Nov.. By that time, it won't be so hot inthe late afternoon/evening time...i think you can start your ceremony much sooner. Say 4 or 5ish. I'm getting married this Oct. and am asking my guests to be at the Gazebo by 4:45pm b/c the ceremony will start at 5pm. Hope this helps!

                    We just had our dinner by the large pool (cascada) @ 7:00 and it was great! We had a few people walk by, but we felt like we were alone! We loved the breeze off the ocean and it worked perfect for us. I was nervous like you. We saw another wedding there while we were there and it was fine as well, people are very respectful and they'll be off eating! Good Luck!
