Los Cabos: Love on the Rocks

written by | Posted on June 1st, 2009

Let couples know that their special day at Dreams Los Cabos will be just theirs, as the resort doesn’t hold more than one wedding per day there—and they should be booked at least three months in advance (good advice when planning any destination wedding). The property can hold a ceremony of any size—up to 500 wedding guests!—with group rates available when booking nine or more rooms. There is no fee for the use of their wedding coordinators, and brides can even personalize the decor (at an additional charge) to their liking. Additionally, Dreams has an online bridal registry service that allows the bride and groom to register their honeymoon. Those bringing children along can take advantage of the resort’s Explorer’s Club, where the little ones can take part in a daily campout adventure and more.

Dreams Los Cabos has a number of enticing wedding packages, the most luxurious of which is its Ultimate Wedding. Priced at $2,650, it comes with the services of the justice of the peace (or minister) and coordinator, and both a pre-dinner cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres and a dinner party, sparkling wine and cake for up to 20 guests staying at the hotel. A personal dressing assistant helps the couple get ready for their walk down the aisle and his suit and her dress are tended to and ironed if needed. The groom receives, upon availability, a complimentary room the night before the big day, and the bride has her hair styled and make-up done; they also get a special spa treatment for two. They can choose to say “I do” at a gazebo or beachfront and enjoy a set of local tunes from a live Mexican trio. The bouquet and boutonniere are also included, as are up to 50 photos of their special day and a video.

For those clients still worried about the swine flu scare that had everyone scrambling in April, Secrets and Dreams Resorts and Spas are also offering a Flu-Free Guarantee: if a guest who books by June 30 for travel through Dec. 20 contracts Influenza A-H1N1 while staying at any of these resorts, their next three vacations will be free of charge.
