Hello,

Im in the process of planning a wedding at dreams but dont know where to start...

I am getting in touch with a travel agent to see what rates we can get for flights and hotel. Is this the best way to go?

Also, I have emailed Dreams to get information about pricing/packages offered etc, but no one is getting back to me. Is there someone in particular i should call or email.

Please let me know.

I'm getting married in 2 months! January 14th, 2012! Any other January brides?  We have about 65-70 guests coming to our wedding.  We decided to get married at the gazebo and have our reception on the cascade terrace. I have finished most of the big details, but still need to work out some things regarding escort cards, music and the food.  I'd be interested in hearing if anyone has had the buffet at their wedding before. We were thinking of doing the BBQ buffet so if anyone has a review on that I'd love some feedback. Also has anyone used the The Mexican Trio (Los Mosquitos) before? One set came with our package and I plan on using them for our ceremony and possibly extending them for the cocktail hour. Lastly, if anyone has advice on the BEST excursions I'd love to hear about it. I was considering doing a kayak/snorkel tour, or whale watching.

 

Advice For Future Brides:

I have had a lot of issues with the coordinator (Magda). She is really very sweet, and when she does respond she is very helpful, but her responses are very limited and far and few between.  I know she is super busy (I believe she does a wedding every day), so I have tried to give her some time, but now that I am only 2 months away from the big day it's been quite frustrating.  Any new brides, just be prepared for the slow communication.  I have learned to not stress over it, but I have also read that once you are in Cabo, she is super helpful.  Just prepared to figure out some things on your own!

 

I chose to use a travel agent and get the group rate through the resort.  About half of my guests chose to use the travel agent (which they were very happy with) and the other half booked through the resort.  I believe using an agent will save you a lot of stress and money.  Most of the people who booked through Dreams did so because they have mileage for their flights.  If I could go back and just pick one way for guest booking I would def. say the travel agent is the way to go as it takes a lot of work off your hands!

 

The only other thing I can say added stress to me so far is a lot of the DIY projects I took on. But I like saving money and creating my own stuff, so it's my own fault! :)

 

Good luck to the girls who are just beginning the process.... I know it can be confusing and stressful! I'll post my review in a few months when i get back!

Shawna,

 

For decor, are you doing that yourself or did you outsource for decor and flowers. Aside from the bouquet in the large package, what else are you getting? I am just starting to plan, ours is May 4 2012. :)

Megan,

For the centerpieces I am bringing my own table lanterns (with votives) which I bought on a wholesale website (http://www.superwholesaler.com/merchandise/?q=lanterns&ad=10&gclid=CMrE7KPTuawCFQZThwodsDEPpg ).  I got 12 lanterns for $6 each. I have some mason jars (cheap on kmart.com) that i'm bringing just in case. I also made my own table numbers which I have attached a couple pictures of (The 2nd finished picture makes it look pink/yellow, but they are actually purple and ivory). I bought everything at Michael's for those. I decided to leave the centerpieces at that, as there is plenty of scenery and I felt that the resort cost for centerpieces was crazy!

For the rest of decor I am using the recommended floral vendor through dreams (Florenta i believe) - I am getting a few bags of rose petals and 4 kissing balls for the ceremony. (And of course the bridesmaid bouquets). I am paying the resort to set up the lighting- the hanging lanterns/string lights. I decided to keep the decor pretty simple, mostly out of frutration with the price. :)

 

Have you made any progress on your planning yet? I know the beginning is super crazy!

We are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in late June, 2012. I'm so excited. I don't have any questions just yet, but I love hearing all the great ideas everyone has. If I have any questions down the road I will definitely come back here and ask.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
