Dreams Cabo Brides

Recommended Posts

Thanks for your help/advice!! Obviously it's still early but we're planning on around 30-50 guests. Since it looks like we'll have to be getting outside vendors do you think I should do will that cheaper resort package to save money for vendors (we're on a budget)??

 

Also I'd rather not have to have a Spanish minister with a translator... do we have to have a legal ceremony before or is it possible to get an English speaking minister??

 

Thanks again, and I can't tell you how much I LOVE all the pictures/slideshows from the other Cabo wedding... they are all so beautiful and make me so excited!!

I think it depends what is important to you. For me, cake isn't a big deal, so I'll take whatever Dreams offeres. Photography, on the other hand, means a lot to me. I haven't heard the best things about resort photographers then again, there have been some that have had great resort photographers. If that's something that's important to you, you might want to consider hiring an outside vendor. I think you need to sit down and figure out the things that might be worth a little extra $$ for you and then consider what vendors to research.

For Dreams Los Cabos, I've only heard of spanish speaking w/translators - again, I could be wrong. Have you asked Yesica about this?

Well lets see what did I do so far...Well I lost 27 pounds!!! I was excited about that! I know that may sound crazy...but I really wanted to look the best I could. It has been my biggest "wedding planning challenge"

I have my dress...final fitting first week of February...No shoes yet! (not wearing them until dinner anyway)

We are getting married at 4pm at DREAMS. I am using Marianna. We have been planning for about a year and a half. We are taking his parents, my parents, and my 6 year old daughter. We are using the beach w/ canopy. Dinner on the terrace by the water, not the pool. I'm sorry I don't remember which one!!

Dinner is filet and lobster... I am using their standard cake. I like cake...but kinda splurged on the cake for our big reception at home. Hopefully I made the right decision!!!!! We booked Juan...I'm using Suzzane Morel....What else can I tell youhuh.gif I have a lot of loose ends...I keep thinking one more thing...it's getting out of hand!!!! Just bought grooms gift today.

What did you guys put in your OOT bagshuh.gif

I did a super cute one for my daughter...I bought a sand bucket vs a bag. I put small stuff in it to keep her busy in the "downtime" but I also bought the "wedding day" Barbie and Ken. It looks really cute!

The most stressful thing is being away for so long...10 days in Cabo (family there 5 of the 10) then fiance (husband at that point) fly to Vail for a 10 day honeymoon. Cabo to Vail crazy I know. We ski and snowboard though.

You guys are always so helpful!!! Any info you can give me would be great!!!!!

Thank you!

Hey everyone-

 

Thanks SO much for your help with the lanterns and lumineras. Yesica already has them confirmed and the prices you gave were completely accurate.

 

Question: Does anyone have any info on DJ Ricardo? Is he a good MC? What does he charge?

 

Thanks!
