    Advice: We are thinking of booking the location of our wedding at Dreams Cabo San Lucas; going with the "free" wedding package and then hiring a separate DW Coordinator to handle everything else, i.e. decorations, photography, music, makeup etc etc.
    Has anyone done it this way? If so, was it worth it or a hassle?
    On the other hand, if anyone did everything through the AI -- were you satisfied with the vendors they provided?

    Also -- is it worth it to get the biggest and most expensive package? Or better to go with the "free" on and just add on?

    welcome nancy...dreams has some of the best resort wedding coordinators so you may want to just start with them to see if that is sufficient and if not, hire an outside WC...there are many dreams cabo brides on here (i am one of them) and reviews so we really do have a ton of dreams cabo, vendor, pricing info on the forum..

    my review is in my sig...other dreams cabo reviews:

      Tammy offered some great advice about Dreams Wedding Planners. I have worked with Yarai, Yesica and Marianna the Dreams WP's and they are some of the best hotel WP's in Cabo. I always feel they have the clients best interest in mind. If you feel you need an 'outside' WP there are many fantastic ones doing great work here in Cabo.

        Thank you for the great advice. I guess my next question is: How can I find a listing/reviews of Cabo WC so that I can research the possibility of hiring an outside WC?

          I am just working with the dreams WC, and between the forum and Marianna I have had more than enough information. Def no need for an additional wedding coordinator in my opinion.

            Thanks for the information. I was wondering the exact same thing. This forum is so helpful!

              I am getting married at Dreams Cabo in just a few weeks. I have only worked with the onsite coordinatiors and they have been GREAT. I have to admit that when my wedding was several months away, emails were slower responded to, but they were always answered. As the time grew near for my wedding, the response time picked up and so did my confidence with choosing to use the onsite coordinators. I wouldn't waste the money on hiring someone to do the job that is included with the "free" package. I was able to choose the vendors that I wanted and I am confident that my wedding will be beautiful.
