    Ladies - I searched the thread for this but did not see anything on it.

    What appetizers and entree's did you love for your wedding menu if you already had your wedding?? Which ones would you not recommend?

            My take on the food is that you are at an AI so if the dinner stinks your guests can find something else with little effort

            Also my FI is way picky on food so we mixed and matched for dinner and Rebeca said it was no problem.

            Poblano soup
            Crab and citrus salad in mango vinaigrette
            Chicken breast foretiere
            Mashed potatoes

            I'm curious if anyone posts that something was spectacular. It has been my experience at AIs (Riu Cabo & Sun Palace) that the food is almost always delish but never to die for...

              Did anyone offer two entree options? We were told we could do it but it might cost us extra but haven't heard word on how much extra it would cost.

                  i offered 2 w/o any cost, but we're talking 15 months ago. there's a pic of my menus in my planning thread (signature). the options for cocktail hour and dinner are the same as they were then.
                  i think i reviewed the wedding food in my review, but i don't remember. we didn't have any appetizers, as we were taking pictures. my father said they were all fantastic. the only thing that is NOT WORTH IT is the cake. get that elsewhere if you can (idk if it's allowed...? don't think it is...). i loved all of the food at dreams but there was not a single dessert that i enjoyed.

                    Well... I had initially planned on discussing the whole menu issue when I went to log on earlier... HOWEVER.

                    Air Canada Vacations has now cancelled my trip-- and consequently my Dreams wedding.

                    So... I'll be saying adios now.

                    Adios. Love you all! Good luck with everything!
