    Hi Everyone!  It has been so helpful to read everyone's posts!  My fiance and I are planning to get married at Dreams Cabo in May 2012.  We are still deciding on an exact date.  I was curious if anyone considered doing the actual reception on the beach.  We were in Punta Cana recently and we saw lots of wedding receptions on the beach.  David at Dreams told me that most people don't hold the reception on the beach there but I'm not really sure why.  Does anyone have any advice on this?  Thanks for your help!

      When we were at Dreams in April photographing weddings, neither of them were on the beach, HOWEVER we did see a party on the beach that had a DJ, dance floor, and dinner so it was basically a wedding.  Probably 75 people, so decent size.  It was right in front of the cascade terrace (that's the one by the infinity pool right?).  It was awesome and people were definitely dancing. 

      I think the reason a lot of people don't do it is that it's windy and in the sand, so you have the potential to get sand in your food.  But they definitely DO do them, at least in April they did!  They are also probably a little more expensive due to the stage rental and adding lighting out in that area, however it was a really cool dance stage with lights and the crowd seemed to love it.


      I will add pictures tonight.  I have a full review of the resort with a ton of pictures, it's just busy season so I haven't been able to post it.  I will make a note to do that this evening!
