The more private location is Ocean Terrace (by the pool). Cascades is below the main pool and there are shows and music in the lobby area, which isn't too far from Cascades. However being right near the ocean, I'm sure you can't hear all of that going on. Oceana is on the other end of the property and it very quiet

I had 7 rounds at Oceana Terrace. We had 60 total (including us). The way the tables were sest up it was very intimate and they were circled around the dance floor so everyone could see us dance, etc.

I wanted the same thing for my reception. Candles, candles and more candles!! And with the tiki torches, white lights, chinese lanterns and the luminaries around the pool, my reception was well lit!

Funny you mentioning about your FI hating his picture taken, so does my husband!!! He ALWAYS blinks when there is a flash involved. Oh, but first he has to say "I'm gonna blink" just before the photo. WELL OF COURSE you are going to blink if you say it everytime just before the photo is snapped! SO ANNOYING! I'm curious to see how many photos Juan tricked him into NOT blinking in.
I forgot about tiki torches! I wonder if I should get those?

Ya my FI hates being center of attention and getting his picture taken! I was like umm we are getting married and we will be center of attention! So annoying! He just doesn't get it!! I hate when people say the are going to blink, it drives me crazy as well. That is the only thing they are concentrating on! Aren't there new cameras out that are suppose to prevent the blinking with certain flashes? I'm sure your photos came out great! I can't wait to see them!

I got the tiki torches from Dreams. They charged me $10 per torch and I think we had 10.

 

Marc hates to be the center of attention too (an so do I actually). But it was really different on our wedding day. Marc was really good about photos and listening to Juan. He didn't complain one bit. We were both just so happy, he probably would have done cartwheels if Juan asked (well maybe not..:)

I think I will probably get a couple tiki tourches from mariana! Thanks!

I'm sure my FI will be the same way~ well at least I hope. He knows how I am about that kind of stuff so I think he will suck it up for a day!!!

Hello - we have officially decided on Dreams (much thanks to Tammy host)!! We're getting married on June 3rd 2007. I still can't believe we actually have a date! We're going to Cabo for our site visit over New Yrs but I haven't organized anything yet for that visit! I was going to use Blanca as a coordinator but it sometimes takes a while for her to respond. Should I have her coordinate all of our vendor meetings during our site visit, or should I do it? There is so much info on this forum, I kind of have an idea of who we should meet with.

 

Also, how did you girls contact Juan? I keep reading the rave reviews and want to see if he is available on 6/3.

 

I will take TONS of pics when we are down there and post a review afterwards. Does anyone need me to do anything for them in Cabo? I'll be there 12/28-1/5 (with a trip to Todo Santos & La Paz as well if we can fit it in).

 

Do most Dreams brides do everything at Dreams (welcome dinner, rehearsal dinner...)? We want to do our wedding on the beach and will def have our reception there but I wasn't sure if we should go off site one of the nights for a welcome thing or our rehearsal dinner... Also, did anyone plan any daily activities for your guests? We may have ~80 people!

 

One other thing - I LOVE the lantern idea (rebecca)... maybe some of us could share since most of us are getting married in May/June...?

Also, how did you girls contact Juan? I keep reading the rave reviews and want to see if he is available on 6/3. you can email him but he is also on the forum alot...he was on last night and this morning...

 

juan@juancarlostapia.com

 

just a heads up, his prices have gotten higher

 

I will take TONS of pics when we are down there and post a review afterwards. Does anyone need me to do anything for them in Cabo? I'll be there 12/28-1/5 (with a trip to Todo Santos & La Paz as well if we can fit it in). dreams will give you a few days free at their resort if there is availibilty BUT that time is very busy so there may not be availibilty. do you already have arrangements made?

Also, did anyone plan any daily activities for your guests? We may have ~80 people! i did everything at dreams because there are enough locations on the resort so that it can feel like different types of events...like a did a more causal mexican/caribbean bbq buffet for my welcome dinner...it was really fun. you might as well take full advantage of AI...if you plan something off-site you will spend alot of $$ on food BUT also alot of $$ on transportation.

We don't have any arrangements for our site visit yet b/c we're also making it into a mini vacation (FI is off school). I don't think my FI realizes how much we're actually going to do when we're down there (wedding planning stuff)... :) He wants to go to Todos Santos / La Paz as well to surf, so we'll just somehow fit it all in. It would be GREAT if we could actually stay at Dreams for a few days to really get a feel for the resort and decide where we want to hold diff events!! How do I go about finding out if they have room for us any nights btwn 12/28-1/5?? Previously i have emailed with Yesica only, I've never been in contact with Mariana. Should I get in touch with her? Can you send me her info? thanks!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
