    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 :)

            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!!
