    Hey ladies, we are starting to think about our menu selections eventhough we aren't getting married until July. Any Dreams brides... I am looking for suggestions on what everyone chose for each course (appetizers, salad, soup, and entree) What was excellent? What was just ok? etc... We unfortunately will not be able to fly to Cabo for a tasting so I am looking for some help from all of you! Thanks so much!

    Also...any suggestions on cakes? We chose the ultimate package so our cake will be provided by Dreams. What cakes are you choosing? or did you choose?

        I am a little confused when it comes to cocktail hour apps. I asked Yarai about it and she told me that the appetizer I am picking from the menu is for dinner. She never sent me a menu for picking my appetizers for cocktail hour.

        How did you girls pick your cocktail hour appetizers? How many are you allowed to pick? Is it extra or part of $28 pp.

        Thanks

          It is part of the $28pp. We got to pick as many appetizers as we wanted.

                I actually didn't get anyone commenting on them... I had the carpaccio and Patrick had the mushroom. My carpaccio was good. It reminded me of sushi. Sorry I'm not more helpful on this!

                    I still have to get my menu from Dreams to start choosing. I'm still thinking about whether or not I should let my guests choose their plate. All the appetizers everyone posts sounds great though. My FI are I are fans of ceviche so I hope it's delicious.
