    Hello! I have booked Dreams Los Cabos for Sept 28, 2013 and need lots of HELP!

    My WC is Yesica & as i have seen on all the other posts, they are all very slow to respond. I have been looking around and I see a lot of great reviews on Yarai, and she has her own wedding planning co & i must say, I feel relieved to have someone who answers me within 24 hours!

    So now I have a lot of details to figure out & could use some advice.

    How did the gazebo turn out for your ceremony?

    How about the minister- did you book them through Dreams?

    In Sept, will it be really hot?

    I see a LOT of DIY stuff that i love on here, but how practical was it to bring things to Los Cabos? Do you really save money in the long run?

    how far ahead did you tell your guests about your plans?

    Recommendations on photographers/videographers?

    Hair and makeup?

    I dont even know where to begin & starting to panic! HELP! and thank you!!!

    First step, don't panic!  Your wedding will be amazing!

    Next, congratulations on setting your date!

    Dreams Los Cabos is a gorgeous resort and you'll be thrilled, I'm sure.


    The gazebo is beautiful.  If you have a lot of guests they will wrap the chairs more in a semi circle around it.  Everyone has a beautiful view of the gazebo and the beach.  It works lovely! 

     

    All of the brides that I've photographed have brought down DIY stuff.  Typically they will have an entire suitcase devoted to it, so depending on your airline, it could get costly, but I think it's still worth it.  Not only moneywise, but also in the personalized touches.  Your guests will appreciate them and it'll make your wedding day more memorable, if you ask me.


    I would send out Save the Dates ASAP as to give your guests plenty of time to save, but also to plan their vacation time for the year.  The earlier the better.

     

    There are FANTASTIC photographers in the Cabo area, and there is always the option of flying out a photographer too.  It really depends on your budget and your style.

     

    For Hair and Makeup, I recommend Neysa of Blanc Salon.  She did a fabulous job at one of the weddings I photographed and I highly recommend her.

     

    So, where to start... I would send out your save the dates so that your family and friends can join you!  Then I would nail down your ceremony location and the reception location and start planning the details from there.  Thankfully, with 10 months to plan, you have plenty of time.

        This is a very good resort, and you will really like the  pool area and find out a lot to do on the it, but everyone always wants to go Medano Beach and the nightclubs and the marina in Cabo.

        I'm 5 months away from my wedding at Dreams Los Cabos on 7/27/13 :) So exciting.

        Not sure how far you are NOW but feel free to contact me with any questions.

        Happy Planning!

          hola princym - welcome + Congrats!!! when looking for the right photographer, the key is to find one whose work touches your heart and resonates with you when you look at it :) then, to narrow it down to someone who is also within your budget.......that's the ONe for you :) 

          Best of luck, and happy research!.......Cheers :)
