Dreams Los Cabos Wedding 7/13/13

Recommended Posts

Hi All!!

 

I've got to say that after reading everyone's reviews, it comes as a comfort to know that there are so many people with great suggestions to ease the stress of planning a wedding; especially a destination wedding. I am getting married next July, 7/13/13 at Dreams and wanted your advice on a few things...

 

TA - After speaking with a few different TA's, I'm leaning towards Vacations for Less. I'm currently speaking with Teresa and was interested to know if anyone else has worked with her and if so, how was your experience? Pricing?

 

Photograghy - I booked the ultimate package with Dreams ($3,000) and I know it includes some photos but I was thinking of expanding on the package and using the photographer at the resort; Adventure Photos. Thoughts?

 

DJ - DJ Ricardo. I've only seen great reviews about him on BDW and he writes back to all of my e-mails promptly and his pricing is reasonable.

 

Any other suggestions/ideas are more than welcome!! I'm at the early stages here but want to get a big start now that I have some time.

Congratulations on your engagement and booking your wedding! I am also getting married at Dreams September 22, 2012! Thought I would share my feedback to your questions.

 

Travel Agent: We are using Teresa with Vacations for Less and she is just fabulous! Quick to respond, knowledgeable, and very helpful. Plus your guests can just email her to book their trip. Very convenient! Her pricing has matched, if not beat, most websites such as Expedia, Orbitz, etc. She can get great rates at Dreams and other hotels. She can book flights for you and guests, but the airline doesn't really give her a discounted rate. We kept an eye on airfare and booked when there was a sale. Highly recommend using Teresa.

 

Photography: We have the Dreams of Love package which does include the Adventure Photographer. I chose to use their services at the Rehearsal Dinner and I am in the process of hiring Daniel Jireh as our photographer. We decided to place emphasis on our photographer within our wedding budget. He has a great portfolio, quick to respond, and reasonably priced packages that do include videography.

 

DJ: We have booked DJ Ricardo as well. He has been wonderful to work with and super flexible. All his reviews are perfect and he seems like the best option for Cabo.

 

Flowers: Your wedding package does come with flowers, which youâ€ll most likely use Emporio Arte Floral. You can email them directly to receive pricing and floral ideas. Just check in with Magda to be sure.

 

Hair & Make up: Your package does include yours, but if youâ€re looking for someone for your bridesmaids or the moms, I am booking with Neysa Berman with Salon Blanc. She has great reviews, cheaper than other artists, and her work is amazing.

 

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. Wish you the best in planning!

Wow!!! We are getting married at Dreams one week apart from each other! :) My wedding date is 7/27/13. Isn't it all so exciting!?

 

I am still in the early planning stages but I can tell you that Teresa with Vacations for Less has been very helpful and really gave me peace of mind about booking room and flights.

 

I am really debating between a DJ and renting Dreams' sound system since my wedding will be on the smaller side. I am just concerned about who will operate the sound system and when. I am going to contact DJ Ricardo to be on the safe side.

 

I've been in contact with Lola from Florenta Flower Design and she is really helpful and sweet. I figure I need a few more flowers than what is included in our wedding package (The Love Package). Lola will give you a "credit" towards the flowers that are already included in the wedding package to equal what DREAMS would charge you for the flowers.

 

Hmmmm... what else??? There are so many details involved.

 

Photographer! I am still shopping around. My fiance really wants someone who can provide a photo booth.

 

I've been in contact with Rev. Artega too. He was referred by Yessica (wedding coordinator at DREAMS) and he is great to work with.

 

Keep in touch! I think we can really help each other out with our weddings being so close in time.

Hi Ladies,

 

Can anyone tell me about the Oceana Pool Terrace or the Cascada Pool Terrace.  I'm having a hard time deciding between the two and the two locations look so similar in the pictures. Which one is more private?  Does anyone have any pictures they can share??  I just secured June 14th, 2014 for my wedding date! woo hoo!!

 

Congrats to all the brides-to-be! ;)

Congratulations on securing your wedding date!!

 

Here is a photo tour of Dreams Los Cabos that I put together.  I think it'll help you out: http://faberphotography.com/dreams-los-cabos-wedding-photo-tour/

 

The Oceana Terrace is by the quiet pool, but it is directly overlooked by a large amount of hotel rooms (a picture in the photo tour is from our hotel room looking down at the terrace).

 

The Cascade Pool Terrace is really beautiful, and because it's at the lower level of the poo, it seems more private even though it's actually in the center of the resort. 

 

So one can be viewed by a lot of guests in their rooms, one people can walk past more easily... horse a piece.  Just choose whichever one you think is perfect for your wedding.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
