I have no clue how to plan a Cabo San Lucas wedding...HELP!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I am looking to have my wedding at Cabo San Lucas summer 2012. I decided to do a destination wedding in hopes of a small and intimate event. I also thought that destination weddings plan themselves, but I was horribly wrong. I'm so confused and not sure where to begin. I found beautiful resorts and contacted them for pricing. Some resorts seem great, but have high guest pass fees. Other resorts were very vague about their services. So I'm hoping some of you wouldn't mind sharing your process. I also don't know whether to go with a standard package all inclusive resorts offer or have outside vendors come in as well. Any and all advice is desperately needed and will be more than appreciated. Reading other blogs, I realized how wonderful and helpful you ladies are, so thank you in advance fro all your help.

 

Some facts about my wedding;

 

- I decided on a $25,000-30,000 budget, but I'm not sure if that is an appropriate budget.

- I'm guesstimating that about 50 people will be attending.

- I'm hoping to have the wedding sometime in July.

- Is a villa wedding possible on my budget or should I just stick to all inclusive resorts.

 

 

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You,

Yelena

After tons of back and forth, I decided to go with the Hilton resort. Now to figure out my vendors...Does anyone have any suggestions for a flower vendor, videographer and photographer?

Oh, when we stayed at Dreams we went down to the Hilton for a little bit.  It's beautiful!  Congratulations on your decision!

    • 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.
