Riu v. Dreams....another one

Recommended Posts

Hey Y'all,

I am ready to book with Riu, but I keep reading these posts about how great Dreams is, so it is reallllly swaying me. How close is Dreams to downtown - would anyone know how much a cab would cost either? Also, I tried to make an online reservation at Riu and emailed Daniela, I know she is notorious for not returning emails though. Should I be worried about not having it reserved if it is not until August 15th? I am so clueless about this...Thank GOD for this site!!!!!

 

Thanks everyone!

I stayed at the Melia which is almost next door to dreams and it was a $25 each way cab ride. The first step for reserving the wedding goes thru the corp Riu then they send you to Daniella after you get a confiramtion number. I wouldn't be concerned. They have to make sure they can get you a minister the day you requested. It tool a couple days for us to hear back. Good luck!

Thanks Kelly! That 25 bucks might get annoying for a lot of my friends...since they are already forking out the money to come down there too! We are flying our priest down with us to perform the ceremony at San Jose del Cabo Catholic Church, so all I have to worry about is the reception (I hope!). I am just worried it is going to be super hot, but if its a dry heat, I'm from Dallas, so I can handle that : ) because the church has no ac.

 

I submitted that request over 2 weeks ago, but I might see if my travel agent can work something out to help me get in touch with her. I meet with him on Monday. Between work and grad-school 2 nights a week, this planning is a nightmare! And since we are paying for it ourselves, I really have to stay on budget and I don't think I can hire a WC just yet, but I might later on.

 

BTW- Shout out STL! I graduated from SLU in 2005 (Go Billikens!) did you find pretty good rates for everyone from there because a lot of my girlfriends from school and my entire extended family are flying out of there. Thanks again for your help and congratulations...you are almost married!!!

Megan, My TA is the one that pushed it thru for me, so I would definetly get them involved.

It will come together this is the hardest part. My guest are paying 1200 each for 7 days. which I dont think is bad at all. But that is at the Santa fe. I was more for the Palace, that is why we chose SF. We are flying thru dallas so maybe you can pick up with your guest on the way there. That would be cool. We have guest coming out of Chicago that we meet up with in Dallas.

 

Almost there!!! Im ready!!

Congratulations on your wedding!!
I am getting married at the Palace in just over 2 weeks (holy sh**t!! Lol.) and I thought I could give you some insight-I have not had any issues w/ Daniela taking too long to get back to me. She has actually really impressed me with her response time, so I have only positive things to say....(hopefully that won't change when we get there!) I have never been to Cabo, but I was told the resort is pretty close to town ($10 cab ride) or even walking along the beach. This was huge for me as I wanted our guests to have the option of being able to do "touristy" things if they so desire...

Like Kelly said-I would contact my TA to get things rolling to secure a date.

I have lots of info, so let me know if you'd like any more questions answered!

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
