First off, I apologize for my late review. It seemed I blinked and the wedding had come and gone and wow its already January!

 

DREAMS LOS CABOS GOLF RESORT AND SPA: A+++

The resort was absolutely breathtaking and exceeded my expectations and more. We spent the wedding week at Dreams and planned to switch to the Riu Palace for our honeymoon. We spent the night at the Riu and after being so impressed with Dreams we switched back! The Riu was such an oversized resort and couldnâ€t compare to the personal service and all the little things at Dreams that came standard!

From the airport we took a limo to Dreams where we were greeted with champagne, cool towels, the friendliest staff. From there on it proceeded to be one of the best times of my life. All of our guests could not say enough good things either about the resort, the food and the staff.

Our rooms were all amazing as well; beautiful décor, amazing views and to top it all off the turndown service. I all I can really say is that Dreams just went above and beyond to make every day of our stay was special.

MARIANA (DREAMS WEDDING COORDINATOR): A+++

Wow, what to say about Mariana, through the entire process of the wedding she was there and didnâ€t miss a beat! Our wedding day went flawlessly and everything I requested through a year of planning was there set up perfectly. She even added special touches to the things that I forgot. Mariana took all the stress off of me when we arrived and let me enjoy my vacation and visit with friends and family as she confirmed all the arrangements for the wedding day. I couldnâ€t have asked for a more professional, experienced, and caring wedding planner for my day! Thank you so much Mariana!

 

REV MARCO THROUGH DREAMS RESORT: A++

I had a few different ceremony reading to choose from and when I read #4 I knew it was perfect. I told Marco that was the one I wanted and didnâ€t think more of it, he did such a amazing job and put such a special touch to our day. Our parents and numerous guests said that he was the best they had ever heard! Marco not only read the ceremony I chose but he included our parents into it and added the vows we originally wrote. It was so personalized and special to our ceremony.

 

PHOTOGRAPHER- JUAN CARLOS TAPIA

I have not received my photos yet so I didnâ€t grade Juan, but if you simply take a look at his work you know he has such a talent in capturing the beauty of each wedding and looking at complete strangers wedding photos, gave me chills. This was an easy decision for me since with a destination wedding not every one was able to join us! I know the slideshow Juan would create will not leave any of our friends and family who couldnâ€t come missing anything.

Stay tooned for PRO pics from Juan!

 

HAIR AND MAKEUP- SUZANNE MOREL : A+

I had Suzanne Morel do the hair for my 5 bridesmaids, my mom and me … along with my makeup. The girls that came did an absolutely amazing job, every one of us was very happy with our hair. I have very long and curly hair that usually is quite a treat in humidity. This was something that I was very worried about when I decided to get married in Los Cabos, Suzanne phoned me numerous times throughout the year of planning to assure me everything would be fine and be sure we were still on the same page with what I wanted.

The wedding day the girls arrived early to go over what we all wanted for our hair and came in with the works! Curling irons, blow dryers, hair spray, etc. so FUN! We all enjoyed the morning getting ready together in the comfort of our room. My makeup looked amazing as well! Just what I wanted! Even with the high temperature of the day it lasted all night and I only had to reapply lip-gloss!

The only problem we had was Suzanneâ€s policy of prepaying for the service before the wedding day, which I was very nervous to do. Since it was her policy I did end up paying her prior for the entire service but didnâ€t have any problems… The girls arrived early and did a fantastic job! I would definitely recommend them to anyone with confidence.

FLOWERS- FLORENTA FLOWER DESIGN: (Rosio) A+

My flowers spoke for themselves, they were stunning! I had orchids, which had to be imported from Holland. They all looked just like the photos I had sent and so fresh! Rosio worked with me to incorporate local flowers in to the centerpieces so I could stay in budget and still have the orchids, just a delight to work with.

CAKE- SWEET DREAMS: (Deena) A+

I had Deena make us a carrot cake with a citrus cream cheese icing, this was so delicious!

I had some major communication problems with Sweet Dreams and my emails werenâ€t going through but Deena still made sure she knew exactly what I wanted and delivered without a hitch. She even brought samples for us to taste to the hotel and I knew I was in good hands! The cake looked and tasted amazing.

DJ- DJ RICARDO A+

DJ Ricardo did a fabulous job with our music, he had all the songs I requested and made the night our own. Even with our group being a little bit of a rowdy bunch spraying beer everywhere around all his equipment he managed to have fun with us and we danced the night away!

 

I can honestly say that there was nothing about this day I would have changed! It was the wedding I always dreamed about. It was such a special week with all our friends and family.

 

Here are some more photos for you all!

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions.
