Hello Cabo Brides,


I am getting married at Esperanza Resort in Cabo, Mexico in June 2012.  I went with Esperanza's approved vendor lists for all my vendors.  I booked Suzanne Morel to do 2 Bridesmaids, MOB and myself.  I paid her in full 6 months before my wedding.  Yes, she is very pricey, however I thought that she was worth usng since she was on Esperanza's approved vendor list.  Well, I was completely wrong!   After fullfilling the balence on my make-up and hair, Suzanne and her team hounded me with emails and phone calls regarding linens.  I didn't even send my invites out and eventually I was pushed into a proposal for linens.  They are very pushy!  I decided to give her a deposit of $250 and then some family members who my fiance and I were counting on to be a solid #, said they could no longer come to our wedding.  I called Elsa to tell her I wanted to hold off from any further planning until I had a solid # and received all my RSVP's back.  They still wanted to secure a second deposit on the linens and I asked her to wait.  Well- I was then berated with email upon email and received several phone calls.  I called Suzanne and when she got on the phone she was very nasty.  I asked her to be understanding to our situation and hold off till we had a firm # and she hung up on me...3 times!  On the fourth attempt to speak to her she told me she was refusing to do services with me and I would be issued a full refund.  She issued me a partial and then decided to use the contract against me and tell me the trial and deposit I scheduled  was non-refundable!  I let her know she breached her own contract.  Then she had the nerve to tell me to go get married in my own hometown!  This woman has no class and she is extremely pushy and will haggle you to get every last penny of her money before your wedding.They take advantage of destination wedding brides.   I strongly advise all brides to run from this woman!   I've been refunded my money by my credit card company because she was in the complete wrong, she doesn't even take AMEX which is an obvious sign this woman charges brides and gets herself in issues where brides back out! 

  If you want to save yourselves money, aggravation and being haggled for extra services you are better off without this woman.  I've paid all my vendors- Esperanza Resort, Elena Damy Floral Design, Del Cabo Events...I've had no problems and these people are all wonderful and a pleasure to work with..its too bad that Suzanne Morel is such a greedy woman that can't run a business with professionalism and enjoys robbing brides while they are vulnerable.  If you ladies know what is best for you...run...I am now going with Neysa Burman and her wonderful team.  Her contract also reads better than Suzanne Morels!  If you would like to see both contracts, please contact me and I will be more than happy to share!  Wishing all of you a great wedding!

    • 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.
