I need Cabo San Lucas reception ideas!!

Recommended Posts

Hello my fellow brides!  confused.gif

 

   I need serious help! My fiance and I are set on a Cabo wedding. We have found a condo to rent in Cabo San Lucas but we are not sure were to have our ceremony/reception. We are on a lower budget. I try to look up places on their hotel websites but they all seem to say we have to stay there a certain amount of nights to get this price or that addition, etc. I'm not sure where to start/look at. Anyone have any suggestions on where to go. We will be having somewhere between 30-40 people- I'd like to have plated dinners and not buffet but I know that may not be an option with our budget. 

   We have looked into wedding planners but are too expensive and I tried www.destinationweddings.com but they would not allow us to book our own lodging. (NOT happy with our service with them, unfortunately)   blink.gif

   I'm RREEALLYYY looking forward to any advice because I feel like my head may spin off with all the information out there. Thank you for your help!

Hi Chelsea,

 

Congrats on your upcoming wedding! If you give me a little more information, I will happily help guide you in the right direction. 

 

Best,

Hi Chelsea,

 

First off, which condo did you book? We may be able to help through the management there or suggest a restaurant nearby.

 

I would suggest Sunset Di Mona Lisa for almost any wedding event. They do a fantastic job and it isn't over the top expensive. Tammy Wolff is the most reasonable (and down to earth fantastic) wedding coordinator in the area. I highly suggest contacting her at tammy@caboweddings.mx. She does a TON of weddings at this restaurant but can also help you with any other venue.

 

Good luck and do let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hi Chelsea!

 

I was so overwhelmed when I started planning that I wanted to cry every time I thought about it. I didn't want to spend money on a WC, but I finally found one for a good price, and she's helped me tremendously!! Illeana Reyes at Romantic Cabo weddings is awesome, she is really helpful, helped me find a place, and when I told her my budget was only 10k for everything, she worked with me on pricing. Honestly, I would start with a WC, b/c they will think of places you didn't even know about, or help you discover places that you don't think you can afford. That is how I found Casa Dorada- I didn't think I would be able to afford it, but Illeana got me great prices, and having your own WC allows you to skip the wedding pkg, which isn't necessarily cheapest for you. You can also search WCs on this Cabo forum, there are a few good ones I think.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi!

 

Do you mind also sending me a pm with her prices? I would love to know how much she charges in order to know if I should even contact her. Thanks so much!

    • 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.
