location decision help!

Recommended Posts

Have you looked at Marbella's website? They have a pic gallery up so you can see what the pool/bar area looks like. It's actually pretty cool. There is a lot of meandering space around the pool and up to the restaurant/bar area. It's also pretty open to the beach, so you could spread out there if needed. I know when I visited the property, they were hosting a big frat boy retreat (ok, long story!)...any way, I'm pretty sure they had approx 100 guys that they were feeding, entertaining & packing into meeting rooms. That would be awesome if you could bring in your own liquor from Costco or something!

I fell in love with Melia San Lucas resort, the rooms were very nice and like I said it's on a beach you can swim in. However the only spot to really have a wedding is pool side and even then it would have to be a somewhat small ceremony becuase it's a thight spot. Wasn't the "look" we wanted for our wedding but its very pretty. I think Rebecca's suggestion of Villa La Estancia might be a good choice for you, it's a little pricy but might be worth it to get what your looking for.
Tammy,
The Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar is such a gorgeous spot! Some of our wedding guests stayed there and we got to see it when we dropped their welcome bag off. That will be a beautiful wedding!!

I dont' know if marbella is big enough for 90 people. It didn't seem like it to me but I guess if you did tables all around the pool it could work. It is a cute hotel and very affordable. Even their drink prices are affordable. I do have to say that the place does look better in the pictures than in real life though.

We're going with Dreams - June 3, 2007! With our varied group (lots of kids-nieces/nephews, our friends who just want to have fun & parents who are hesitant to travel), the all-inclusive seemed the best option. Plus we really want everyone to be in the same place for the entire weekend. I'll be down there 1/2-1/5 for our site visit. Can't wait to actually see it!!!!

Hi Tammy,

We think we may have ~80 people...(!) Save the Dates just went out yesterday. I'm hoping to do the starfish / shell theme for our centerpieces at the reception and maybe something citrus or brighter for the rehearsal / welcome dinner (maybe even bright paper flowers for the rehearsal dinner) - I'm trying not to do much for that but a few of my friends really want to help so I'm just going to delegate if I can. For the wedding reception, I want to do a lot of candles and the tiki torches or paper lanterns too, if we can. It depends on which place at Dreams that we decide to hold the reception. I'll know more once we see it (in 2 weeks - yay!). I'd LOVE to share anything with you!! I'm going to talk to Mariana and see what she has in terms of vases or glass bowls and then decide what I'd have to buy (& see what i can get down there). I haven't figured out flowers yet either (or my colors!), but I'm waiting until I do my site visit to get more inspiration. What ideas do you have so far for your decorations? talk to you soon - Jen

Jen is this the first time you'll be in Cabo? If so you'll love it.. I fell in love with the Sheraton, didn't look at dreams but I feel like I've been there with all the weddings from this forum.. :-) SO I'm sure you'll love it as well. Right now were having our dinner at De Cortez, which is located at the Sheraton, (see below for pic) they have a candle already on their tables so we are going to incorporate them in our decorations. I'm leaning towards the starfish and green sea glass on the table instead of rose pedals. I sent Maye an email to find out if I can but them there and at what price or if it's best for to get them before I arrive. Course I change my mind several times before I finally make a perm decision.. so who knows right now..lol

Congratulations on making a decision! I think Dreams and the other AIs are definitely more affordable. I love the Hilton (where we're getting married) but I do sometimes dream about paying AI prices!

We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white.
