Florenta is high. Dreams just started added a new flower vendor called Emporium.

I looked into using that vendor. The owner was quite slow to respond to me and when I sent a photo of the flowers I was looking for he was not able to duplicate them. photo he sent back was missing some of the flowers and looked nothing like my photo. I think he does more classic flowers and I am looking for modern. It's true that florist is about half the cost of Florenta and may be a better choice for some.

That's interesting about the slow response, Alina always responded to me quickly. And I am only using calla lilies so I guess I was sort of simple.

To Dreams Los Cabos brides - Wondering if anyone has any advice - It looks like WAY more people are RSVP'ing yes than we expected to our November 2012 wedding. We had thought we'd have 35 - 40 and it looks like we may have over 60 *(which will likely be a huge strain on our budget and I'm a bit stressed about that). Does anyone know how Dreams Cabo charges for the wedding and how much per head I can expect? When we started this, I was picturing a smallish but super fun wedding. Apparently people are loving the location so everyone is getting on board. Lovely but Yikes!

I have the same situation going on. We expected no more than 25 people to come and we are up to 40! From what I see in our wedding package information, up to 20 guests are part of the package, beyond that each person can be an additional $62-75. I'm kinda hoping we can work something out for a better deal since that's pretty much two weddings worth of people according to the packages they offer. The worst part is some of our guests have a timeshare at a nearby hotel and they have opted not to stay at our hotel and their entrance fee to the hotel/wedding is $95!!
I'm with ya on worrying about budget. I had no idea so many people would be this excited to travel to another country! But I'm happy they can come and I'm sure everything will work out in the end.

Thanks Casi for your feedback! Are you serious- $95 per person who isn't staying on the resort? We have a bunch doing that also! Is that $95 + the $75 or whatever that you pay for the dinner? Are you covering the $95 cost of them entering the venue? Wow - I'm not sure how to handle that one. How has anyone else addressed that? Do you make the guests pay that part? And the $62-$75 - does that include linens etc? or is it just the dinner/cocktail?

Yes. $95 per person staying off resort. I have to say that I am finding that Dreams doesn't work with you at all or make ANY exceptions on these items. I have been pretty upset by the way I am treated- like just another number to them. Little care or concern is shown during planning.
Our package included a 1 hour music trio and come to find out if we don't want to use the trio-because we wanted a spanish guitarist we pick- they won't credit us the $350 for anything else- even though we are spending a lot of money on extra people and have about 35 guests staying at the resort as well as spending our entire honeymoon there. I guess that means nothing. Then you have to also use the in house photographer or guess what- again no credit from package!
Same thing with the cake. We wanted a professional cake- and if we since we aren't using the cake in the package- it's our loss- no credit or we have to use it at another event. So we spent money on the ultimate wedding package and at leat $500 has gone down the drain. We have to have an extra cake we don't even want. Too bad for us.
It's really sad. Nobody there seems to care. I am concerned about how this is going to turn out and how we and our guests will be treated when we get there. When I express concern or ask to escalate any issue- I get no response.
Good luck to everyone. It hasn't been a fun experience and much more stress than I ever anticipated.
