    Hello ladies!

    FIrst off, I love this site and you all have given great advice!!!!

    My name is Latoya (got engaged June 30, 2007 in NYC) and I am a newbie! I have been racking my brain as to where I want to get married. Since my fiance and I visited Cabo this past March (we stayed at Pueblo Bonito Sunset --- the best resort I have ever been to but the resort is a little pricey for a wedding) we were thinking of having it somewhere in Cabo.

    I was thinking about Dreams Los Cabos after reading everyone's review. I do have a few questions:

    1. Is the wedding ceremony & reception area at Dreams Los Cabos private enough? (don't like the thought of half naked onlookers at my wedding)

    2. What about Dreams having two weddings at the same time? As a bride would I be affected (location, attention from WC)?

    3. If not Dreams, what other resorts would you recommend that has a private location for a ceremony & reception (budget friendly)!

    Thank you so much in advance for your help!

              Welcome Latoya! Don't worry...picking a location is one of the most stressful parts of planning a DW. It took my FI and I almost 5 months to make up our minds! I was a Dreams Cabo bride, so let me see if I can answer some of your questions... I answered in pink.

              The ceremony & reception areas are not private. However, as the beach is not swimmable, there are few bikini clad miscellaneous people around. They aren't in any of my photos, and although my ceremony was at the wedding gazebo, the people eating at the El Patio restaurant adjacent to my ceremony location were more than accomodating- quiet, respectful during the ceremony and all cheered loudly when it was done! I suppose this could be an issue, but it never was for us. Our reception was at the Oceana Terrace, which again, isn't private. We had minimal interruption during our reception, despite the fact that people would have to go severely out of their way to get to some of their rooms we had very very few (like 2-3 the whole night) walk through the reception area to get to their rooms. Most people went around the long way so as to not disturb us. There are very few places you will find that are totally "private" unless you go for somewhere private like Ann (akh- one of our mods) and a few others have gotten married like Las Caletas PV


              2. What about Dreams having two weddings at the same time? As a bride would I be affected (location, attention from WC)?
              I was told that you can request to be the only wedding on a particular date. I did, and there was no one else. There are multiple places (but not a TON) for different ceremonies/receptions so you could theoretically not see the other bride. They also have more than one WC, so you might not have an issue with being affected that way- depending on the size of your wedding you might consider an outside WC. I did not have one and Mariana at Dreams took care of my wedding perfectly, but I only had 14 guests.

              3. If not Dreams, what other resorts would you recommend that has a private location for a ceremony & reception (budget friendly)! Are you talking Cabo, or other locations? Another Cabo resort you might consider if Cabo Surf. Several of our brides have gotten married there. It's a smaller boutique-y hotel. Search for Janet, Natasha, and Christa's weddings on here...their's were beautiful! If you are thinking other locations, let us know where & we can help narrow it down for you.

              Thank you so much in advance for your help!
              You're welcome...happy planning!
              Latoya

                Thank you for your support and thank you NurseSarah for that advice. I hope I don't run you ladies off with all my never ending questions. As a bride, you all know how the planning stages can be very fun, very stressful. Ladies, you are a life (or wedding) saver!

                  Welcome to the forum Latoya and congratulations on your engagement. We're having our wedding at Dreams Los Cabos and so far the planning's been smooth (except for having all our guest hurry and get their rooms booked quickly because that resort fills up QUICK and we were still about 6 months out and had to hustle). My dealings with the WC there have been great and pretty easy.

                  Good luck with the planning and have fun!
