Hello fellow Dreams Cabo brides )
My fiance and I have booked our wedding at Dreams, our date is November 19th 2013!!! I tried to make contact with the photographer that is included in the wedding package by visiting their website to see if I can add more pics/time to our wedding package (Ultimate) but have not had a response. Can you tell me who you contacted to add extra photography time?
I am so glad I have joined BDW, I think this will be a great help in making some tough decisions. Thanks!

Hello Fellow Cabo Brides )
My fiance and I have booked our wedding at Dreams, our wedding date in November 19 2013!! So excited! I have a question regarding LeAnn's post about the extra hours for photography. I visited the photographer website (http://dreamsloscabo...ephotos.com.mx/) that is included in the wedding package to contact them about the option of adding additional photos (50 is just not enough!) and have yet to hear back from them. Can you tell me who you contacted to get the extra photo time?
Thanks so much! So glad I joined BDW, I think this will be extremely helpful in making all upcoming tough decisions!

I am having the same problem! I am getting married 10 days before you I just emailed Mariana because the photographers have not replied to me and they are the only vendor that this has happened with! (of course it's probably the most important one...grrr)
Le Ann did you have the same problem that we are having getting in touch with the photographers?

Looks like this happens often with them!! The first time I e-mailed them, they replied within a week giving me details on price and packages. The second time I e-mailed them telling them I would take the extra 3 hours, it seriosuly took them 2 months to reply. That is not a joke!!!! I continuously asked my wedding coordinator Yesica about it. She assured me that everything would be fine because they are on site and have more than one photographer for weddings. This I do know to be true since we did our site visit. It seemed like the photography booth was always busy. I have no idea why they take so long to reply.
When they replied finally, they told me that they had me down for a total of 4 hours on April 12, 2013. That was all the email said - after waiting 2 months for the reply!!!! I e-mailed them back to see how I would pay. We are trying to pay for our entire wedding before we get there. But there reply just said, you pay us when you get here. They scheduled an appointment with us 3 days before the wedding to go over details and that was it!!
So Ladies, it isn't only you!! I would definitely let your WC know that you plan on using them and ask her to verify that they have openings on your wedding days!!
It also took the spa about a month to reply to book my hair and makeup appointment!! It's just the way it is there! and when you get there, you'll see how slow things seem to go!! Which is good when you're there but not so good when we are trying to plan our weddings!!!
Hope this helped!!

Lauren, please keep us posted on your wedding planning. I recently booked my wedding for Dreams in Cabo for 6/14/14. I would really appreciate the updates on your vendors, as I will be going through the same process as you (we also chose the Ultimate package). I haven't exactly started to dive into the vendors - i feel like it's too early, but do you ladies think I need to get started on the soon? Any help would be appreciated!
Congrats to you Lauren and Happy Planning!

I am also getting married at Dream. My wedding date is 7/27/13, JUST SIX MONTHS AWAY!!!
My invitations are finally out and my guests have started RSVP'ing. Selecting an invitation was a process of it's own but feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My passport invitations were a big success!
We chose to go with the Love Package but added a few outside vendors. Gilda Badillo for extra pictures as my fiance and I love pictures and we want to have as many as possible. I plan on asking my WC Yesica if we can use the photographer included in our package for the rehearsal dinner. Not sure if it's possible but I'm going to ask. I chose Florenta Flowers as my florist because she works very closely with Dreams and offered me a credit on her total for the money I paid towards the flowers in my package. She takes a long time to reply but I love her work and her blog is updated on a regular basis. I also love her Facebook page Florenta Flower Design. We booked Ron Weber as our DJ. Anyone heard anything about him? I really thought about just plugging in our iPod but I don't want to bother any of my guests by making them the unofficial DJ, plus I think the announcements at a wedding are so important. I think that might be it for outside vendors.
Travel Agent - I'm working with Teresa Stauring of Vacations for Less, Inc. and she has been AMAZING! She always gets back to me quickly and answers all my questions clearly. We booked a 10 room block for our guests and she made everything easy and pain free. I highly recommend her.
I still have so many little things to take care of like booking hair and make-up, favors, and so on but for the most part the big things are all taken care of. Hope this was helpful! Feel free to contact me with questions.
