I think many of the brides here have had issues with email responses in the beginning with wedding coordinators. I have learned that they really have their hands full. You may have better luck calling and speaking to someone to expedite the process and see if they can even offer you what you want.
Most resorts have packages even if it's just for the two of you so I don't really think that should be a problem. I am not a CABO bride but search around on that "accomodations" forum and you may find soome helpful info.

We are doing the same thing as you...going on a cruise to the Mexican Riveria. After much thought and research, we decided the best way to handle it was to get married on the ship (our legal ceremony)on embarkation day in Long Beach and then have our "beach" ceremony on the beach in Cabo. We felt it was the easiest way (although we are having to pay for two ceremonies---it is still way cheaper than a traditional wedding in AZ) and we couldn't be happier with our decisions so far. We are doing a trash the dress photo shoot while there also. Photos were very important to us so we will have our formals on the ship and then some beach formals and then the fun TTD photos as well. I did contact several of the WC in Cabo and some of them were too expensive for what we wanted but there was a couple of them that had pre-made packages which were reasonable....and they have handled cruise brides so they are aware of the time constraints that we have. What cruise line are you going on? We are going on Carnival so we are only in Cabo til 3pm so it will be a little tight but very do-able! Good luck---I am sure you will find a WC in Cabo that can help you out. There is another website that is cruise related and there is a great wedding forum there----great info/recommendations/reviews for cruise brides on there. If you would like the website, just let me know. I don't know if I am allowed to post it here.

We too are going to do the legal part before Cabo. I looked into and you have to have blood work done. And since I have a horrible fear of needles, that would be the last thing I want to do on the morning of my wedding. So we are looking for a simple beach ceremony for about 20 people with no reception. We are going to be going on NCL in March.
Do you mind me asking which wedding coordinator you are going through? And how much you guys are paying for a beach ceremony? I feel like some of the prices are kind of high, but then again I have never planned a wedding like this either.
Thanks for your help,
I send you a private message as well with my e-mail.

We are using Katie Thompson for Weddings in Paradise in Cabo. Our wedding is about 30 people (including us!!), and she is treating us like any other "big" wedding. Let me know if you need her information. Good luck, and you will love Cabo!
