DREAMS LOS CABOS BRIDE Sept 28, 2013- Need lots of advice!

Recommended Posts

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.

Congrats princym! yes, you're off to a great start already with choosing a gorgeous venue for your Big Day! and joining this forum community :) where you have access to all the resources of your fellow brides - both past + coming up - in their various planning stages.

 

I would also suggest booking your photographer asap - to capture all those magical wedding "moments that matter" - the culmination of all the detailed planning work you're putting in now! to create that picture perfect record of your wedding - which will carry you right back to it, every time you look at them :) and not only you and your partner-for-life, but for everyone who couldn't join you on that day, and all those for generations still to come...

 

........ can you imagine if you had shots like these of your grandparents?......Priceless!

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 :)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
