        Food: The food overall at Dreams is good. There were some things I LOVED- Dreams Tacos, Chicken Kiev, Omelettes to order at El Patio, and the Chilaquiles. There were some things that were just so-so, but that’s totally expected in Mexico. Everyone on this forum talked about how bad Himitsu was, but some of my guests wanted to try it. I’m not a huge sushi or Asian person anyway, but what I had was tasty and my guests said it was good. I believe Edyta’s guests enjoyed it as well. So, I guess it depends on what you order- my friend loved the vegetarian rolls, but said the Pad Thai was nothing like it should have been. Just an FYI…
        i have to say the breakfast at Dreams is AMAZING! i mean an omelette bar and betty the omelette lady makes the best omelettes and fresh to order waffles. they also have a fresh smoothie section and the yummiest green chilaquiles...YUMMY!

September is very HOT, February was too COLD. This was just right. Seriously, I couldn't have ordered better weather if I wanted to. It was 89-91 every day and just perfect in the shade. If you wanted to lay out it was great. At night it was 65-70, and just perfect with a pashmina or cardigan. On my wedding day, I was actually comfortable in my wedding dress. The only time I was too warm, was when we were taking pics right on the beach and standing out there for a long time, and at the reception when I was dancing like a crazy drunk college girl! Ahhh...I want to go back!
        the weather in May is fantastic in CABO...my favorite time!!

        RECEPTION

        Our reception was at the Oceana Terrace. Tammy & Edyta were making fun of me because I went to check on the progress of the setup THREE times that day! Jeff & I didn’t stay together the night before the wedding, so it was hard to sneak around and make sure he didn’t see me, but I did.
        ok, edyta and i think sarah is lying about how many times she went to check on the set up...we think she went more than 3 times. she was cracking us up.

        I cannot say enough good things about Mariana. She gets an A++++++++++++++++.

        I can honestly say that Mariana did a PERFECT job- if you have Mariana there is no need to have an outside WC- she is awesome!
        mariana is great!

Now, you’d think she was a paid advertisement for Mexico destination weddings- she tells all her friends it’s the only way to go. We spent so much money paying for my family to be there, but I wouldn’t do it any differently now. My brother leaves for the Air Force this morning, and I would trade that 4 days in Mexico with him for anything. Not only did I have a perfect wedding, but also I had a perfect family vacation- there are memories that will last forever.
        this is exactly what i have been saying about DW's. yes, you will find resistence from family but in the end it is such a great time...not just wedding...for all. so worth the money and anxiety.

        Wow!~ What a review - I'm so glad that everything turned out so perfect for you... Now all of us June brides really have something to live up to. :-) I got a little teary eyed at the last comment about Jeff saying how terrific you are....

          Sarah - Phew I am tired after reading all that :)

          I am so impressed with your wedding and hope that writing the review was the final OCD touch and now you know you can just RELAX!

          And I mentioned this on the other thread but your makeup was FLAWLESS and so photogenic. Good choice on doing it yourself!

            Thanks Janet- I actually thought of you and heard your voice in the back of my mind telling me to relax and enjoy myself. You and Christa...I had to remember what both of you said about just letting things happen and enjoy every minute. Although, I had done so much ahead of time there really wasn't much to stress about! I had 3 days before the wedding to just hang out and have fun.
            Yes, I do feel much better now that I got this review done. I am just so excited to finally be married! woohoo!! Yes, hopefully now I can direct my OCD-ness to another area- like cleaning my house! lol
