Just Booked 4/4/13 Dreams Los Cabos!!

Recommended Posts

Just booked today for 4/4/13 at Dreams - my original email came from Guillermo, anyone know how he is?  I'm still a year away and after reading so many posts about the WC, I'm sure I'll have a few over the next year!  I'm still torn about the reception, beach front or pool?  Any suggestions?   

 

Anyway, I'm super excited to get this planning going, and i can't wait to dig into this site and start getting ideas!!

Have you looked into group rates for your guests?  I haven't gotten a reply from the group salesperson. I think her name is Zitaly. I want to get an idea of nightly rates for my guests!  I plan to keep it under 20, hopefully!  I hope your planning is going well!

Hi ladies! I am considering doing my wedding there as well.  Would be about ~100 guests.  Please do share how much the guest rooms are costing your wedding party pp/per night.  Did you guys do a site visit before signing on? What about the menu tasting? 

 

Thanks for your help :)

Congratulations on booking your date!!! 

We were just there last April and we shot two weddings, one in each pool location.  I have a great photo tour here if you'd like to view it.  I hope it helps you!

Hi there!

 

I am a little over two month out before my wedding at Dreams!  Congrats on picking the place!  Have you chosen a travel agent?  I am working with TA Teresa, she is on this site and is amazing.  She got me the room block and the rates.  My wedding is in May, Memorial Day weekend, and for double occupancy we are paying 160/pppn for the Junior Suites.

 

Also included in that is a site visit which we did take advantage of.  It was a two night stay for my fiance and I and we went in December.  Before we went we let Magda, our WC know which two items we wanted to try from each course of the menu and she had that all set up for us.  I did not do a site visit before depositing but I did go before it was too late to cancel.  I was pretty sure I was sticking with Dreams because of the wealth of information located here but I still wanted to go see it, it doesn't take much for me to go on a vacation.

 

I hope this helps.  I am still in the planning stages but of course am towards the end so please don't hesitate to ask me anything!

 

Happy Planning!

thanks anichols8 for all the info!  I'm sure I will definitely have questions for you!  Zitlaly, the group coordinator got back to me and we got the contract worked out!  I was quoted as below:

 

 

 

 

GROUP RATES:

Junior Suite Ocean View $162 USD per person per night based in double occupancy x 2 persons = $324 USD per room per night based in double occupancy

 

Junior Suite Ocean View $156 USD per person per night based in triple occupancy x 3 persons = $468 USD per room per night based in triple occupancy

 

Junior Suite Ocean View $210 USD per room per night based in single occupancy

 

 

 

 

 I wasn't aware of the site visit being complimentary but that is awesome!  It is included in my contract as well. I definitely want to take advantage of that!  How was the weather in December?  I'm thinking we'll probably try to take it sometime this winter as well.  My room block cut off date is 11/10/12, so we may have to go before then.  I am waiting on a reply from Zitlaly to let me know when we have to use that - who wouldnt take 2 free nights in Cabo??!!! 

 

Which meals did you like?  Also, did you choose the beach wedding?  We chose the ceremony on the beach and the reception at the cascada pool terrace.  What about music?  I see alot of people just rent the sound system which I think is what we want to do also.  Do they provide music during the ceremony?  I keep forgetting about that part!!  See - i knew I was going to have a ton of q's for you!! 

 

We picked the wedding package that cost $2,199 - which includes quite a bit including my hair, makeup, etc.  I have no plans of adding too much fancy stuff so we'll probably just stick with what comes with it except for the sound system rental!!  We want to have a beach bonfire the night before the wedding and I want to do a trash the dress so with those extra charges, I think keeping the wedding package as is will be good enough!! 

 

I'm excited to hear your details!!  Happy planning!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
