Cabo Dreams Site Visit March 20th-24th

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies! Since I have gotten so many great ideas and options from this site I wanted to give back and do a little review of my site visit. My wedding is booked for October 26th, 2009 so we decided to do our site visit and stay at Dreams March 22nd through the 24th. It was my first time seeing and actually staying at Dreams and let me tell you, it was wonderful!

 

Dreams: Overall a great hotel. All-inclusive is the best way to go when you want to gather a variety of people like we are for our wedding. The rooms were HUGE, and I only had a Jr Suite, I cant imagine how big the honeymoon or onebr suites are. The room was very clean. Maid and turn down service twice a day. The food at the resort was way better than I expected. All the resturants had good quality, fresh food with alot of variety between all the resturants. We literally ate every 2 hours popcorn.gif, it was ridiculous! I ate more in 1 day than I do a whole week back home. Drinks were also very good. A little on the weak side, but then again all I kept ordering were pina coladas and blended mixed drinks. Once we started ordering mojitos and rum and cokes those were a different story. bunny_4.gif

 

We did our tasting for the reception and honestly we had such a hard time deciding on what we wanted to serve at the reception because everything was good. We ended up going for the ahi tuna for our salad, and the surf and turf and salmon/scallop for our entrees and the tiramisu for our dessert. I've craved that tiramisu everyday since we've left cabo.

 

WC Yarai: We met with Yarai to go over our wedding plans. To all the ladies that are working with Yarai: you are in very good hands. She is awesome! She gave us a variety of options and always kept our budget in mind. She is very organized, professional, and very easy to work.

 

DJs: We met with both DJ Ricardo and DJ Mijares during our site visit. We were torn because both were very nice and professional. We ended up going with DJ Ricardo. His experience was impressive, over 20 years as a DJ. We also felt that his style of DJ'ing was what we were going for.

 

Rev. Marco.: Rev. Marco has such a wonderful calming presence about him. We talked about incorporating our filipino wedding traditions into our wedding. He was very accommodating and was actually very familiar with all our filipino wedding traditions. Theres no doubt in our minds that he will be able to deliver a very memorable ceremony for us, as well as our guest.

 

And lastly, I know that with the crazyness going on in the news about Mexico right now safety is in the back of all our minds. Let me tell you, we felt totally safe the whole time we were in Cabo. Being an all inclusive, the Dreams resort had more security then other resorts we have stayed in. They really know who is coming and going at the resort at all times.

 

I have found all the vendors and people that i'am working with on this site, so thank you to all the brides that have taken the time to write their reviews and answer questions. Planning my wedding would be a million times harder and more time consuming without this site.

Hey Marise!

It looks like you had a great time in Los Cabos!

Your testimony is great, I really apreciate your chapter about the safety issue, Los Cabos is a great safe place for a destination wedding, and of course it is a beautiful region of mexico!

Good luck with the rest of your planning!

Thank you so much for your site review. It makes me happy that I chose a great resort. We share vendor Rev. Marco and he sounds great . I cannot wait to eat all the great food. Did you choose a package at Dreams or are you doing a la carte?

Thank you so much for the details you have shared. I will not be able to do a site vist before the wedding, so I value all the details in your review.

 

We will also share Rev Marco and DJ Ricardo, 11 days after your wedding!

Is Rev. Marco the person Dreams uses or did you ladies find him on your own? Yesica hasn't even mentioned who will do the ceremony. Maybe I need to get on that.

Hahaha, yeah after awhile we did ask to have our drinks made a little stronger, and we did taste and feel the difference.

Dreams has a different "drink of the day", all were sooo yummy!! If you don't like sweet drinks I recommend the blended mojito, sooo refreshing! Hmmm...maybe I should start a "What drinks to order at Dreams" thread...

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
