Dreams Cabo Brides

Recommended Posts

Esperanza was fantastic! I am going through withdraws from both locations, Dreams and Esperanza. I think we planned that honeymoon perfectly! We had 7 days at Dreams, including our wedding day, and 4 days at Esperanza. The price of Esperanza is about double what you pay at Dreams but you definitely get what you pay for. I highly suggest you at least plan a dinner when you girls get there. The view is like nothing you have every seen and it is a 2 mile cab ride down the street from Dreams. We are already planning our trip next year to inlcude both locations.

 

I'll be working on my review this week!

YAY! We are already booking rooms and people are now getting excited about coming to Mexico! Of course people have not completely gotten over the price of rooms and air fare, but everyone we want to come is really making an effort to be able to come :)

 

I am thinking about making my own wedding invitations...Has anyone done this? I have no idea what I want to do, something tropical I guess. I don't like any of the ones I am finding in my price range, so that's why I decided to just do my own. If anyone has any advise please let me know...I am pretty much starting from scratch!

 

One more question...When you do a dreams wedding package, do you get upgraded to the honeymoon suite for free? What is you book a regular room now, can you still get upgraded for free when you decide on your wedding package? We are expecting about 30-40 people, and are doing the whole reception and everything, so which wedding package should we go with?

 

Thanks everybody, and happy planning to everyone!

I just got married at Dreams in October 20th and it was PERFECT. I will also work on a review in time. Yessica was great, so if you have heard she is the lesser of the wedding coordinators on this forum....she was wonderful.

 

On your question about packages. We booked the ultimate package and i would not do it any other way. Everything is just done and you do not have to worry about anything. It is their best package and it comes with everything you could possibly need. The food for the cocktail party was great (I was told...I was taking pic with Juan Carlos) and the dinner that we had was amazing (lobster and filet).

 

We booked a one bedroom suite and then we were upgraded for free to the honeymoon suite. I doubt very much that they will upgrade from a junior suite up to honeymoon suite but I could be wrong.

I will be getting married at Dreams in May! I am thinking about going with the Ultimate package, also.

Question though, is the "set-up" fee included in the price of the package, or do you have to pay that on top? I know it covers dinner for up to 20 guests, but I have heard so much about set-up fees for ceremony, cocktail reception & reception.

 

Also, has anyone gone with the Ultimate package, and gotten married on the beach? The package said it covers "Gazebo décor - chairs with white covers, ceremonial table, and carpeted walkway"-- will that apply to the beach, too?

It also includes "Use of the wedding gazebo or beach front arbor" -- does anyone know what the arbor looks like? Is it that green arch in their web pictures?

 

 

I am also using Yessica, and she has always replied to my e-mails within a couple days. She has been very kind and pleasant!!! I am soooo looking forward to this amazing resort!!

Hi Melissa,

 

I was charged only for my guests over the 20 that came included in the package for my reception/cocktail hour. The charge that they gave me was $68 per person which included the cocktail hour and dinner reception for my wedding. Again I had the ultimate package so I am not sure if they do things differently for different packages.

 

We did have a welcome dinner the night before and for this there was a fee per person. They do these special set ups for people but they charge a minimum fee per person. For example for us they stated they only do these private set ups for groups of 40. We just paid the fee of what it would be to have a private set up for forty people. We paid I think $1,200 or so for this welcome dinner but it was gorgeous. It was a private buffet right on the pinata terrace. They way the set it up and took care of us was amazing. They went all out with the buffet set up, exhibition style cooking right there, waiter service --3 guys for our party of 28 -- huge buffet station, salad station, and dessert station. My guests were VERY impressed as well. We also had a speaker system with microphone so that we could give speeches and play our own music during this event.

 

It does seem a bit steep and my wedding coordinator here in Milwaukee did not try to get the prices down as they were stated clearly in the literature the hotel gave her and me. I really feel you get whatyou pay for and we certainly got an amazing welcome dinner on Sunday and our reception on Monday was perfect!

 

I did not get married on the beach so I do not want to comment on your other questions. I do know you get the white covers on chairs for free and the ties are $2 each.

 

Hope this helps

Nancy

HI Nancy,

 

I arrived at Dreams on the 19th. I saw Juan Carlos running around the hotel taking pics of a wedding couple...it must've been you! You and your hubby looked beautiful! Congratulations!

Thanks Nancy!

 

I have been considering the ultimate package and you answered some questions I had.

 

If you dont mind my asking what did you do for music during the ceremony? Was it included in the package?

Thanks~Erika

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
