Just stumbled on this site today and already can't stop reading all the informative posts. We were engaged at Capella Pedregal in late July and are planning a small (likely only 20 people including us) destination wedding in Cabo for November 2011. We were originally planning on having the wedding at Capella Pedregal because it is so small we thought we might be able to fit it into our budget but after a little back and forth with the hotel we've discovered that we have to have at least half our guests staying there to hold the event and we just don't have enough people that can spend that kind of money on a hotel. I'll be paying off our engagement weekend for a while myself. So wondering if people have suggestions for more intimate small venues? I think the Sunset da Mona Lisa looks very nice. Anyway look forward to any help you guys can provide...with my girlfriend in school I'm left to do much of the research and bring her options. So I will need help, haha
Do you think I should inquire with a coordinator for such a small wedding or will it be too large a percentage of my budget per head?
