    For me it came down to our budget. We anticipate having about 75 guests. Dreams may cost our guests more to stay at than a regular hotel, but I do expect that the majority of them will stay. Even if we have to pay for half of guests to get a day pass to come to the wedding, it is still working out cheaper than the Sheraton, Hilton, or other places we had looked at. Cabo in general is beautiful and I loved the dramatic look of the gazebo at Dreams, so I don't think I'm sacrificing anything by having our wedding there. The rooms are absolutely beautiful since they have been remodeled and I know my guests will fully take advantage of the all-inclusive aspect. Also, the extra money we'll have in our budget is gonna let us do things like Mariachis and upgrade our linens. I am looking forward to a gorgeous wedding there & can't wait!!

              I've been all over the place researching different destinations and just started looking into Cabo myself.... Loving it more and more... I'll be anxious to hear how your site visit goes!! Just out of curiosity, are you going to visit any other resorts while you are there or have you pretty much decided on the Dreams?

                  So we got back from our site visit and wanted to give an update on our plans. I have edited my first post with the changes. BUT...

                  The biggest two changes we had to make.

                  1. Food
                  2. Colors

                  1.Food
                  Marianna said that a buffet like we wanted was not such a good idea with only 20-30 guests. Damn I didnt even think of this or I would have done a taste test durring our site visit. But here is what we came up with for food at the Cocktail hour and Reception.
                  Cocktail Hour (you get to pick 3 cold appetizers and 3 hot appetizers)
                  COLD APPETIZERS
                  1. Choux with chikcen salad
                  2. Ceviche in Chalupa (fish)
                  3. Guacamole and salsa with tortilla chips

                  HOT APPETIZERS
                  1. Chile Popper (stuffed jalapenos)
                  2. Spinach quiche
                  3. Chicken Hot Wing (Ryan picked this one not my fav but had to let him)

                  Reception Dinner
                  (you get to choos one appetizer, one soup or salad, one main course, and one dessert)

                  APPETIZER =
                  Snow Crab Cake served with avocado and tomato dressing

                  Soup or Salad =
                  Tomato salad with basil and black olives

                  Main Course =
                  Sea bass fillet served with fresh asparagus and portobello mushroom with beurre sauce

                  Dessert =
                  Tulip of strawberry with grand marnier sauce and vanilla ice cream.


                  A little about the food in Cabo and the reasons we choose the menu we did.

                  First of all the fish is outstanding in Cabo. We were worried because we are from Cape Cod and relatively speaking are kind of fish snobs, but it was great.
                  As for the menu selecitons we werent sure of I just simply asked Marianna her honest opinion on what she thought was the best, and we went from there.

                  A review on some of our choices that we had while in Cabo;
                  Guacamole = so fresh and so good
                  Hot wings = not my favorite but a lot of meat and Ryan just loves chicken wings so I let him have the damn chicken wings as an Appetizer.
                  Snow Crab Cake = To die for
                  Sea Bass = incredible
                  Tulip of Strawberry dessert = YUMMIE and light which I love!


                  And as for colors. My colors were ivory and sage green. I told Marianna that we really wanted chair ties and she showed me the color green she had. YIKES it was lime green. NOPE no thanks, so after much deliberating we are going to do the
                  chair ties in Navy Blue
                  The table runners in Navy Blue
                  The BM's dresses in Sage Green
                  The flowers in green and ivory (orchids and roses)

                  So our colors are officially now Navy Blue and Sage Green.

                    So our colors are officially now Navy Blue and Sage Green.

                    Are the chair ties a $1/each? I also wanted to ask Yesica about tablecloths..using something besides white....did you by chance ask them that or know? I didnt know how much more then would be or not!

                    I had no idea we could choose so many appetizers for the cocktail hour...I will have to figure that out.

                    Your colors sound great by the way! I think it will look so good together!!
