    so here's what i started with, WAY back when! it looks like nothing...
    Wedding date: June 22, 2008, ceremony 5:00 pm
    Ceremony: Gazebo
    Cocktail Hour: on beach after the ceremony
    Music: Would like Mariachis for the ceremony & cocktail hour-Mexican trio booked through my WC
    Reception: Cascade Terrace
    food for reception: appetizer: Crab cake w/ avocado dressing
    salad: mixed lettice salad w/ cherry tomato
    main course: beef tenderloin w/ julienne vegetables OR penne pasta with shrimp and scallops
    dessert: tulip of strawberry with vanilla ice cream

    cake: probably just get whatever comes w/ Dreams package
    Wedding Cordinator: Mariana at Dreams and Katie Thompson from Weddings in Paradise

    what i have added/done:
    colors: fuscia and lime green (because i saw so many great ideas from other brides in this color scheme)
    booked photographer, Joel Maus Wedding Photography and Portraits by Eckman Maus Photography he is a friend of a friend so he is giving us a GREAT deal. He's here is So Cal and will coming to Cabo to shoot the wedding. He will also take us around Cabo the day after the wedding to do some candid shots

    bought my dress, waiting for it to come in

    booked rehearsal dinner at Pancho's

    booked all travel for FI and I, room block secured through TA Tammy
    sent out invites, you can view my invites on this thread My Prim & Pixie Invitations Arrived (pics)
    Hair & Make-up booked through WC
    DJ: Arturo Ortiz, booked through WC and cigar roller also booked through WC

    Flowers: we will be using the Flower Cart as that's who WIP uses. My boquet will be white & green cymbidium orchids with ivory roses. the bridesmaids will be fuchsia roses with green cymbidium orchids and green button mums. I'll have to post photos in a "flowers" thread.

    Centerpieces: drowned cymbidium orchids in a large glass cylinder with a floating candle on top, 4 small pink votives around the base of the tall cylinder. ivory tablecloths with lime green table runner and fuchsia napkins at each place setting. the napkins will be folded around a menu card. i'll have to post pics of this stuff too when i have more time.


    Still need to do:
    (pretty much everything for the OOT bags)
    Order canvas totes, plan on buying from cheap totes
    Order custom koozies, luggage tags, travel sizes of pepto, immodium, advil for bags-i DID make it to my local Target to snatch up the Spanish Phrases for Dummies though :)
    Find wedding day shoes
    Print menus
    Order votives for centerpieces
    Decide on & buy favors
    Pick out and purchase groom/groomsmen attire
    Order guestbook (Adesso Polaroid book, already have camera & film)
    Buy wedding day shoes
    Get wedding bands

    :SIGH: you know when I see it all on paper it doesn't look so bad! It actually makes me feel a lot better!

              I have definitly heard former dreams brides gals used Costco or the flower cart. They both got good reviews I think. Try searching the Cabo wedding reviews and look at some of the older brides reviews.

              Thanks hopefully it will be helpful to us Dreams brides because really the whole lay out is done you just have to change some dates and wording and most of us are also doing the sunrider cruise so it could work out well for a lot of the Dreams brides to borrow the template.

                  Hey ladies!
                  I got married at Dreams on Saturday, February 23, 2008. I just got back yesterday. I promise to write a full review (very tired) My advice is don't stress!!! Don't stress about all of the small stuff. You are in good hands with Dreams. Just enjoy it, it goes by so quick. Just savor every moment...the more you stress, plan and worry...the less fun you will have. Remember it's YOUR wedding. At the end of that day, what will really be important?? For me it was just being married to my husband.
                  I did use Juan Carlos Tapia, Suzanne Morel, and Marianna...just trust me everything will be beautiful. These people are professionals!!! I have pictures, however, not a huge fan of posting them on a website. I can email them to some of you if you are interested. I use snapfish. PM me and I will send them to your email.
                  Nicole

                      Does anyone happen to know the size of the rectangular reception tables at Dreams? Or, are ivory linens available at Dreams?
