    I emailed Claudia about a week ago and haven't heard anything back- normally she takes about 3-4 days. When I was at the resort I heard that they had over 75 weddings scheduled this month.

I would usually get a reply back from within 1 week, 1 week and a half.. but the last email I sent her was on Dec. 29th, and haven't heard back yet...? Just wondering if anyone else's email responses have been slower than usual?

          Hello ladies- This thread has been so helpful! I have a few questions- hoping someone can answer.
          1. Strawberry package dinner- Can you downgrade the food to buffet style or just more casual to try to cut back on costs? Has anyone tried to negotiate this? (I'll prob have approx 50 guests and at $64/person, the price will grow really quickly! And my FI and I would prefer more casual dining.)
          2. I would like a cocktail hour, but was hoping to use one the hotel bars (so we don't have to pay extra). Has anyone done this? And there a good bar to use near the gazebo/beach area?
          3. My wedding is at 4pm. I'm having a cocktail hour, but would not like to start the dinner/reception until about 7. What do you do in the meantime? Ceremony should last around 30 mins; Group pics about 30 mins; Cocktail hour...I'm only at about 6pm... (Thoughts? Feedback on timing?)

          Thanks ladies!

                Congratulations to everyone. I'm so glad I found this thread....I'm also planning a wedding there in November and am getting quite nervous that I have not heard back from Gabriela in 4wks. Last I spoke to her she said our date and time were on hold, and that they would be reserved as soon as we booked our rooms but I have not been able to get in touch with her to finalize plans. Did everyone else run into this problem? Who did you book your rooms through? Also, did they draft up a contract for you prior to reserving the rooms? Thanks!

                  Oh wow Sandra! Cannot wait to see more! Those photos look amazing. Did you fly your photographer out from Cabo? Did the hotel require that you pay for a guest pass for an outside photographer, or do they require that you book a room for him (and any assistants)? Also, what about the person who did your makeup? Did you have to buy a guest pass for him?

                  Thank you!!

                    Yay Sandra! The pics are gorgeous, can't wait to see more! I am also using Adrian for my wedding makeup, very glad to hear you were satisfied. You always feel better hearing more positive feedback about the vendors you've hired :)

                      I finally got through Sandra's review.....wow!!! It definitely helped me relax a bit about not having much communication from the WC. Thanks so much Sandra! I have another question....has anyone looked into providing guests transportation to the resort. I know cabs are super expensive and and were just looking into other options for our guests. We have a pretty big guest list and expect ~100-150 people who would all be arriving on diff't flights for the most part. Any thoughts? Thanks!
