Dreams Los Cabos bride Roll Call

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.  I'm getting married at Dreams on May 27, 2012.  Does anyone know when I select flowers, decorations (chair bows, linens, etc), wedding arch, etc?  I've asked my wedding coordinator but I haven't received a straight answer.  I'm not sure if I should be picking these things out now or if I select them a few days before then wedding when I'm at the resort.  Thanks!

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.

may 27th is when i got married at dreams los cabos.  usually you will not decide the flowers, decor until a month out.  if you have a specific idea of what you want, you can send images to your coordinator and see if she can get quotes for you.

I went in for a site visit so I sat down and chose the colors with Magda but you can just ask her if they have the colors that you want.  She told me that they could find any color.

i just noticed in the price guide under decorations it says prices are per hour? so if i rent napkins they are gonna charge $2-$4 an hour???? did anyone rent napkins or tablecloths? if so do they actually charge per hour for them?

Hi. I am getting married at Dreams in June2012. I agree that Magda is not always on the ball about responding. But I have been able to do a lot on my own through a lot of research and hard work. Hopefully this will save other brides time and frustration.

 

Vendors we are using are as follows:

 

Ceremony and Cocktail Music- Spanish guitarist Arturo Santomayo. He is at least $200 cheaper to book on your own and not through Dreams. He has a website and you can hear his music on there. Couldn't be a nicer guy on the planet to deal with.

 

Flowers: Lola with Florenta. If you are picky about flowers- she can help you. Already we have emailed hundreds of times. She seems to be great.Go to Florenta Los Cabos on facebook to see her work. She is expensive. I paid $1900 for 4 huge centerpieces and ceremony decorations, bridal party flowers and a bag of roses. Crazy! But flowers are important to me.

 

Cake- Sweet Dreams Los Cabos. I am using the cake in the package for the rehearsal dinner because I wanted a three tier cake. I hear that Sweet Dreams is awesome. Response time is slow however so be prepared. Also a facebook page.

 

Decorations: Oxten- Hector Portugal- I got a dance floor, and fancy uplighting and dance floor lighting from Hector for the same price I would have gotten a dance floor and lanterns only from Dreams.

 

DJ Ricardo- Saved about $200 by booking on my own.

 

All in all, I didn't want to wait for the last minute for Magda to work with me on this stuff. So I booked these people on  my own, and ok'd it with Magda via email. Be prepared to wire deposits in advance when booking on your own. But I saved about $500 doing this and feel I found the best group of people to make my wedding great.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
