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 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...

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
