    Hey everyone, my name is Kara and my wedding is at Dreams on April 11th, 2009. I found this thread and am beyond excited to be able to take part in it! I have already gotten so many ideas, and had so many questions answered from reading the posts here, and I am looking forward to reading more of them. I will leave you with my wedding details:

    I am marrying Matt, who is an officer in the Marine Corps, and we got engaged June 1st of this year, right before he deployed. He will be back in February, and is very excited that our wedding is going to be in Cabo!

    We live in San Diego, and have never been to Cabo, but I have been to Cancun and Cozumel.

    We have reserved our date and want to have our ceremony on the bottom part of the cascade terrace, and the reception on the top part. (The gazebo was already taken)

    We are expecting about 30 guests from California, Michigan, Florida, and Virginia. I was wondering how people found flights for their guests, and how expensive they were. So far, what I have found has been quite expensive!

    Other than that...I am currently in the process of selecting vendors, and doing some of the detail work for the wedding. I already bought my dress, and ordered the STD magnets today!

    I am so excited!!! It's nice to meet you all!! Talk with you soon :)

        Hi Kara

        I am getting married July 10, 2009 to my Matt. I booked the gazebo and Oceana Terrace for the reception. Other than that Ive been a pretty lazy bride. Now that I am thinking about it...maybe I'll FINALLY emial my WC. Ive been meaning to do it all week.

        Congrats and welcome!

              Tammy, I hear you are the person a lot of people use as their travel agent? I am looking for a travel agent who can help all of our family and friends get their rooms booked, find flights, and find out about room blocking and how we do that. We are also all wanting to get travel insurance, so that if we have to cancel for any reason, we can get our money back for rooms, flights, etc. Of course, Matt and I won't be canceling so the wedding stuff is all finalized.
              We have family coming from Detroit, Virginia Beach, Orlando, Sacramento, San Francisco, Canada, and San Diego!!! It's gonna be crazy, but so fun! We are estimating about 40 people will come.

              Thanks so much!

                      So our save the dates went out last week and we already have people complaining about how expensive everything is to fly to Cabo and stay at Dreams. Many of my friends don't understand that its a really nice resort...I am not really sure what to say to them?? We are willing to help some of our friends out with rooms if they really can't afford them, but not if they are going to be calling me and yelling at me about the price of the trip!

                      Has anyone else had this problem?? What did you do/say?? I was not happy when my maid of honor called and complained...but she has always been like that anyway I guess.
