    We got married May 16th, 2009 @ Dreams!
    Our wedding turned out AMAZING. I was a bit stressed right before we left for Cabo because of the swine flu craze but everything turned out perfect once we got there. We had 80 guests attend our wedding and everyone had an awesome time. We had guests coming up to us all week thanking us for having our wedding in Cabo.

    Here is my review:
    Dreams Resort The resort is amazing and I already miss it. We knew what to expect because we had done our site visit in November. The only complaint my guests had was that they were given double beds instead of a king/queen beds. Some of my guests ended up with really great rooms on top floors and others ended up on the first and second floor in just OK rooms. Some of them were able to change their rooms and some of them weren't. It was just frustrating because the hotel was only 40% booked because most people had canceled because of the flu and they still kept telling my guests that they had no rooms. Ohterwise everything at Dreams was great. I feel like the food was better this time around.

    Weather Perfect! Sunny, Mid 80's with a little breeze

    Wedding Coordinator @ DreamsI worked with Yarrai and she was so good. She was organized, got back to my emails on time and was just so helpful. I gave her 2 suitcases with all of my stuff and she knew exactly what to do with everything. I loved her :-)

    Flowers I used Lola from Florenta Flower Design. I compared her prices with a bunch of other florists and her prices were the best. She is so friendly and sweet. She is really good at emailing right away and her flowers were great! I would recomend her for sure.

    Cake We used Deena/Sweet Dreams. She used my wedding invitation for the design of the cake. The cake looked AMAZING and tasted great. We actually brought the top of our cake home.

    DJ We used DJ Ricardo. He was awesome to work with. I could email him about anything. Even weather and other things and he would email me back in 2 seconds. Him and his wife are so friendly and he is so professional. We had him play lots of Persian music, I gave him the CD ahead of time and he had it all downloaded and ready to go. We loved working with him!

    Video We used Jorge Ibarra. We haven't seen our video but he was so easy to work with. He is really laid back and funny. I will post our video once we get it back. He was great!

    Photo We used Gilda Badillo. She was AWESOME!!!! We just got our pictures back. Here is the link: www.pictage.com/663811
    She was so good. She took us to San Jose for some city shots and she had us back in 20 minutes. She knows what she is doing and she is really fun to work with.

    Guitar player during ceremonyWe used Arturo. We didn't really get to hear him that much but everyone else said he was great.

    Hair/Make-up Suzanne Morales. She is expensive but well worth it. All of my girls LOVED their hair and make up.

    The fire Dancers We are so glad to have booked them. They made our wedding! Our guests were never the same after watching them. We only booked them for 15 minutes which was perfect. If you have the budget for it, book them!

    Our wedding turned out perfect!
    Our guests had so much fun and we were relaxed the entire time we were there. The frozen drinks really helped :-) I could have NEVER planned our wedding without this forum. Thank you all for your help and support. I hope my review will help future brides in Cabo. Please let me know if you have any questions.

      How much did you pay for your fire dancers? That would be a dream of mine but I know they are extremely expensive. Great review!

            Congratulations on your wedding Salomeh!!!!! You were a gorgeous bride and your smile was amazing in every picture!!!!! Few questions...you is the designer of your dress (you looked amazing in it and the material totally complemented your skin color!!). Do you remember the name of the company for the fire dancers?

            also, wanted to add regarding the beds.

            most of the rooms have 2 double beds. The only way to guarantee a king sized bed is to book the rooms with those beds (usually honeymoon suites) but of course that is more $$ than most want to spend. So if you are diligent and ask the front desk nicely, they really try to be accomodating. You may not get the king bed the first night, maybe the next night but they do try to work with you.
