    Just joined, and I am excited to get some opinions, advice, etc. My wedding is June 10, 2007, at the Sunset Mona Lisa. We will be staying at the Westin.
    Any advice about the Sunset? I just saw something about construction near the restaurant. I already signed a contract, so I am stuck. I am also using Amy Abbot as my coordinator, if anyone has comments/suggestions. She seems great so far -- we are currently working on her contract.

      Congrats on your upcoming wedding and welcome to the board.

      I would "hope" they would be finished with the construction before your wedding (your getting married 5 days after me BTW) I heard Sunset Mona Lisa is awesome, great food and GREAT views. I wanted our wedding dinner their but my FI didn't want like the name,, lol men..

        Welcome! You should be able to get lots of good info from Karla and other Sunset Da Mona Lisa brides on this board. As for Amy Abbot -- I think you are in good hands. She is part of a wedding planning firm in Cabo that gets rave reviews (although they are not cheap!). I don't know anything about her specifically but I am using one of her colleagues for my day-of coordination.

          Thanks for the replies! Yes, Amy is not cheap, but I am a bad bride, b/c I really don't have the time to do much of anything! So I guess I cut out some other things in order to be able to hire someone there that is able to prompt me on what to do. :-)
          Tammy - he didn't like the name?! Uh, men! It is just such great views, that I couldn't pass it up.
          We are also thinking of doing a snorkel/lunch catamaran thing the day before in lieu of a rehearsal dinner - there are only about 25 of us. Any thoughts on this?

            Hello and Welcome. There is a post under vendors about someone that did a cruise and the pricing involved. I am looking into this as well. I've seen photos of the Sunset and it is so beautiful!

                Welcome! The views are beautiful there. I had my engagement pics taken on the beach below the restaurant and I think they turned out great. If you want to see them, go to www.jeffreyandsarah.shutterfly.com
                Good luck with the planning!
