Dreams Los Cabos - Room Perks

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

My fiance and I are 95% sure we want to book our DW at Dreams Los Cabos next spring. Ive been communicating with a wedding coordinator for weeks and after reading what feels like HUNDREDS of posts, Im still confused. LOL! Someone please help....

 

I have a few issues:

 

1) I want my guests to get the best rate possible and even have the option to make monthly payments. From what Ive read so far, it seems that I would have to do a room block with the resort and my guests would have to reserve (and I assume pay) for their rooms DIRECTLY with the resort.  OR I'd have to get a travel agent, and possibly pay more for the travel package (air + room). 

 

2) What are the perks of using a travel agent? Are their rates comparible to Expedia or Priceline?   Is this the only way I can get the "free room" perks?

 

3) What questions should I be asking the wedding coordinator . Im worried about hidden costs or things I havent forseen.

 

4) Has anyone used the resort approved photographer? My wedding photos are probably at the top of the list of things that are most important to me. I dont want to pay the $200 fee for bringing in a new photographer and at thousands to my budget. But having goregous pictures are vital.

 

Ok. I'll stop rambling! Any info you can provide would be a HUGE help to me! It truly takes a village 8)

Hi there, Dreams Los Cabos is a great choice and it would be a pleasure to give you some onsite in how you can work with an agent and still get great rates! We at Eright travel actually have a great Bride and Groom fly free promo going right now as well as some specials with Dreams.

Investigate who the photographer is, check portfolio, don't forget the photographer background, many of those photographers were doing other jobs than photography. If I were you, knowing photography is the most important part of your wedding, because you said so, I wouldn't mind to spend the cost of another real photographer that handles pictures from beginning to end, an artist not a picture maker

Welcome to our forum community, dandi76, and Congrats on your upcoming destination wedding!!! 

We've had so many wedding couples asking similar questions, we've complied a webpage to respond. Here's the link: MTM FAQ webpage

 

We strongly recommend to our wedding couples that if photography is important to them, they'll be much happier with the results they'll get with a professional vs the resort photographer! 

 

You can see a comparison between the two options at this link to an album comparing what a professional photo looks like vs the resort guy wearing the "photographer" t-shirt.....Professional Photographer vs Resort Photographer

...here are a few samples:

You invest so much time + energy planning your Dream-perfect Wedding Day, and then in a few short hours, the party is over, the guests have left, and all that's remaining are your memories and the photo-record of your Big Day.

Choose the photography style that resonates with you and touches your heart.

It has the power to bring you right back -  and re-live those magical moments that matter!!!

 

Whom would you entrust with this responsibility, and which option would you choose for your Wedding Day Love Story Album?

 

Our wedding couples who've chosen the professional option rave about how happy they are with their choice, and the others frequently express real disappointment in what they were left with from the resort photographer.  

 

Your Wedding Celebration is a once-in-a-lifetime event - not a situation where there's a "do-over" possibility.

Choices ultimately come down to what it's worth to the individual couple, and what works best for them.

 

We've recently expanded our pricing structure to offer more options for a wide range of budgets - and even some breaks on outside vendor fees some resorts charge.

If photography is important to you, Invest in a professional photography Artist - you'll be so very happy you did!!!

 

Wishing you happy research, and all the best with your plans - cheers!!! team MTM :)

@@TammyWright thanks Tammy. Ive been emailing Teresa with my TA questions. Im still concerned with making things affordable and easy for my guests. But from reading some posts today I see the other side of it. Not just perks for me and my fiance, but guaranteeing rooms are available and not sold out and that they get the group discount. I really appreciate the brides on here and all of your help.

The guaranteed rooms is the most important thing IMHO.  I have heard so many horror stories of the resort selling out and half the wedding half to stay elsewhere which added so much more $$ in day pass fee and also really dilutes the experience you are trying to create for your guest.

    • 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?
