Morning!


I actually photographed a Cabo wedding in April for a couple from Australia.  They had guests flying from all over the world, including Australia, Bahamas, and NY (ironically).  The wedding was a Dreams Los Cabos and everyone LOVED it.  They actually all flew to LAX and met there.  They partied there for two days and then all flew to Cabo together.  From what I heard, it really added to the experience for everyone.

I have looked into having the wedding at the Dreams resort as well (its incredible), however my guests would have to pay a greater price

difference as oppose to the Riu resorts. So I had to eliminate that idea. However, having everyone met in LAX before hand is a terrific idea, I will look into that. Thanks you :-)

I hear the RIU is fantastic.  Especially because it's closer to town.  It really stunk that Dreams wasn't near and it cost a lot to go to and from town.  That was the only stinky thing about Dreams.

I will look into your vendors that you mentioned, especially the photographer. I want to have amazing pictures during that time.

Thanks again for helping me out. Hope you feel better.



Thanks! I am finally feeling much better. Yes, it probably makes a world of a difference to have a travel agent work with you, so that's great!!   And let me know if you have any other questions/concerns!

Wedding planning is indeed stressful, especially when you're doing a DW since you do not live there. BUT it will all be worth it in the end, so hang in there! And vent when you need to! :)

I think that's a great idea for your guests from Australia. Not sure about your guests from the East Coast though as it might be more costly. I thought about that as well since my family is from Southern California but it would have been more expensive for those of us flying in from the East Coast. So we just looked for flights directly there.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
