I don't know how much anything costs but I hope this amount would cover all expenses as far as the food, flowers, photographer, etc... If anyone can give me a ballpark figure as to what they are spending (including # of guests) it would be greatly appreciated. I am so new to this forum and the whole DW thing that It feels really overwhelming!

Thanks for all the help and quick responses I've been receiving since signing up just one day ago.

Lots of Cabo Love,

Rosa

Welcome, last I knew outside vendors for catering other than cake isn't an option. As someone who as tasted the food, it's top notch and isn't reminiscent of an AI. Besides, asking someone else to cook would bypass a perk of getting married at Dreams (only paying the set-up fee).

 

For 20-25 people, 10k will suffice! I know that planning can be overwhelming but we are all here to help. As I tell all brides, invision your day and then go ffrom there. I am also a Dreams bride and 85% finished planning so ask me whatever you'd like.

 

Good Luck!!!

Thanks for the tip. I did not know that u cannot use an outside caterer for the food, silly and naive of me to think that. I 'm learning so much from this forum and again, I'm so greatful for all the warm and wonderful responses I've been receiving from everyone, yourself included.
Lots of Cabos love.

Your right, that makes alot of sense. I have been a little concerned about the food from all the negative reviews I read on Tripadvisor.com, it can be very discouraging at times. Thanks for your help.

The idea that u did not use to many flowers for your wedding because the resort is already so beautiful really made alot of sense. I also loved your idea on using a flower submerged in water( I hope that was u Tammy, please correct me if I'm wrong) was awesome and elegant. I really think us brides are so brainwashed to spend so much money on overkill items for a wedding that it's no wonder a wedding in the states cost 40K and up!!!!

Cabo love,

Rosa, you are going to fit in on this forum just great. Pretty much all of the brides around here are of the same mind frame. If you look at all the wedding pictures and reviews in here the weddings are usually a fraction of the cost of a US wedding and in my opinion 10 times more gorgeous and meaningfull. There are so many posts and threads around here (ecspecially for cabo) to do things to make you wedding look elegant and buetifull without spending a gazillion dollars.

U are so right Tammy. I liked the fact that u did the flower submerged in water which made it look so unique and elegant as well as the tea candles for the ambiance which made it romantic and intimate(I took a look at your gallery pics and absoultely loved them). Also, u are right that the resort itself provides the decor of a beautiful backdrop. I am so much more comfortable with the DW thing that I'm so excited to get started and can't wait to show off to my friends that spent a fortune on their weddings(HEHE!!!).

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
