Sunset Weddings? Any experience?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, First post after the newbie info here. My fiance and I have contracted Sunset Weddings to do our coordination for our wedding in less than 4 months in '09. We visited Cabo in September '08 and were won over by the owner of Sunset Weddings and her husband. We hired them and then were then transferred over to one of their sub coordinators for the planning. Since then, we havent got anything done except for signing the hotel contract for the reception. Our wedding is supposed to be held in the Cabo San Lucas Catholic Church as of now but we're thinking of switching to a beach wedding. We have zero other vendors hired. We're not sure if this is normal but we are totally freaked out because today is the 99 day mark until the wedding. Our budget is a big deal to us since we only have $10k to $12k to spend and no more. We are expecting about 40 to 50 guests. I am buying a business so I dont want to have additional debts after the wedding. We went last night and bought a bunch of materials to figure out a 'Do it yourself' wedding (and drop the WC).


Questions for the forum:

1) Anyone had similar experience?

2) Anyone have hints on dealing with Sunset Weddings?

3) Are we being unrealistic to get a great wedding done on our budget?

4) Any suggestions?

    • 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.
