Hi,

I'm finding that it's still pretty expensive to do a wedding in Cabo. BUT, I think that if you are willing not to make your decor so fancy, Destination is the best way to go and save on your wedding. What I mean is that the beach is beautiful in itself so you don't need to go over the top on flowers and things, that can save you a lot of money. Also many quotes are priced per guest so if you are having less people come because you are going farther away that will help. Is your heart set on Cabo? If not I would look into places that aren't as expensive. Cabo seems (from my location tracking) to be on the higher side of things. I have looked into Puerto Vallarta and that seemed to be much more affordable. I looked in a small town called Sayluta and things were GREAT prices. My Fiance and I were just really set on Cabo since we have spent every summer there for the past 5 years. Anyway, I hope that helps and good luck with planning!

In my opinion the cost to have a wedding in Mexico and the US tends to be about the same, although it really shouldn't be given that prices in Mexico are way cheaper. What ends up making a big difference is in the number of guests that actually attend a DW.

 

Another thing to consider is that it also sounds like you have exactly an idea of what you want for your wedding. Many resorts have very strict rules about what types of decorations or types of vendors you can have. You are more restricted than if you were having it in a ballroom at your Hometown.

Welcome to the forum! we're getting married at Dreams Los Cabos as well. And like everyone has said, it kind of depends on what you want, and how detail oriented you are. You can easily spend the same amount of money that you would in Toronto, but factor in that you will also be there for a week, not a day. We initially were going to have a winter wedding in Lake Louise, and it was going to cost us about $30,000 just for the food, drinks, cake, etc...on the wedding day. We're now planning to spend close to that, but we're also getting the photographer, transportation etc...plus a whole week away with our family. Just do some research on this forum and with Dreams directly and see what you find.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
