      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 (photo(1).JPGtablenumberJPG

               

              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.
