    My bouquet

    No, no! Please steal it! LOL! Here is the website where I got it from: Welcome to Planetjill photo custom Jewelery and gifts - Photo bracelets, photo necklaces and photo accessories I was going to make it myself, and put a photo in a charm. But the charm from planetjill is really nice quality. And I think it looks better than doing it yourself. You basically send in a photo, and they shrink it to size. It is definitely something I will keep forever.

    My Palmilla Wedding Review

    Below is a link to some more pics of our wedding. Please ignore the drunken friends of my husband! I apologize for the pics that are just plain wrong...but they are funny! A lot of the pics are of our friends and family too. Wedding Pics - a photoset on Flickr

    My Palmilla Wedding Review

    For 100 guests, I think Baja Cantina would work for you. It is definitely reasonably priced. However, I peeked inside Mi Casa and Pancho's and I like the ambiance better. I was looking for something casual as well, and to me Baja Cantina looks more like a bar than a restaurant. I think the food was the deal breaker for me, I wasn't really impressed by it. I think I've had better Mexican food here in San Francisco...
  4. Since this forum saved me from insanity while planning my wedding, and I wanted to return the favor and post my review. Please let me know if you have questions on anything! I tried to include a picture of everything, cake, flowers, bouquet, dress etc. My wedding review – Sept 15th, 2007 at the One and Only Palmilla The O&O Palmilla – A + (times a million) Words cannot describe how unbelievably amazing this resort is. The service is unparalleled to any resort – from your personal butler, to complimentary tequila, water and snacks in your room, to the pool service, food, staff, spa, property etc…the list goes on. We had the welcome party, rehearsal dinner, wedding dinner, the cake and day after brunch - all at the Palmilla. I am grateful and glad I picked this resort. It is beautiful. I was afraid I was going to make my guests bankrupt after staying here, but they said it was worth it. (And I found out that the pool food is the same price as the Hilton in Cabo!!) My coordinator at the Palmilla, Katia Unger is a saint!! I am convinced she is the hardest working woman in Mexico. I was not nervous or stressed at all!! She is a brides’ dream coordinator. If you can swing the prices at the Palmilla – do it!! Flowers: Elema Damy A – This was the only think I wish I could have done differently. I have no idea why I spent the money I did on flowers – when no one really cares!! I could have done with out the flowers on the tables during dinner. It was dark outside, and no one could see them. Oh well. However, I loved the arch she did at my ceremony and my bouquet. She and Carlos are great to work with. I suggest providing ton of pictures of what you want. There was some confusion on a few details, but that’s because I was limited on what flowers I could get in Cabo in Sept. Oh yeah, and she is pricey – but open to negotiation!! Elena Damy | Contemporary Floral Design Ballroom Furniture: Oxten A+ We set up the ballroom like a lounge, and this was my favorite part of the wedding! It was worth the money. The room looked transformed into a lounge/club. Cost: $3500 OXTEN DJ: Ricardo Patino A+ I am so happy I chose Ricardo as our DJ. He really kept our party going. Our guests said it was the best wedding music ever! He is professional, and very responsive to emails. The best part about Ricardo, is that he will only play what you want at your wedding. We provided a list of songs, and he stuck to it. He can improvise too. He also wants to know what not to play during the party. His equipment is also state of the art. Cost: about $1000 for 4 ½ hours. DJ System - disc jockey entertainment in Mexico - dj services for your party in Mexico Bachelorette Party Dinner: Baja Cantina Dockside C I did not like this restaurant. I wanted a place that was low key, and had good Mexican food. The food was mediocre, and they gave way too little of it. The website is also deceiving!! The restaurant looks so different on their website, I thought we were in the wrong restaurant! I passed by Mi Casa, and wished we went there. Wedding Dress: Reem Acra A + I loved my wedding dress!! I think I might have to wear it once a month for a day, because I love it so much. Photograpy: Juan Carlos Tapia N/A I haven’t seen photos yet, but I really liked working with him. The man knows what he’s doing. Cost: about $2800 for 5 hours. Airport Transportation: Transcabo A+ To help alleviate with traveling costs, we paid for airport transportation for our guests. This company is great! I read a lot of good reviews on them, so I felt confident using them. I did everything over email. Even with all the changes with flight itineraries, they were on top of everything. Punctual, courteous service, and great to work with even over email.

    My bouquet

    Thank you all for your kind compliments...couldnt have done it without this forum! Here is a better pic of my bouquet. There is a charm with my dad's picture pinned to the bouquet to remember him by. I wanted him to walk with me down the aisle.

  8. Here is a pic of my bouquet. My wedding was at the O&O Palmilla in Cabo. My florist was Elena Damy. She is great, although a little pricey. There are red, magenta and yellow roses with green cymbidium orchids. I was supposed to have coral tipped yellow roses, but they died on the way to Cabo. The hardest part was picking flowers that could withstand the Sept heat in Cabo. (Ignore my niece in the pic)
  9. Just wanted to post what I gave to my guests in my OOT Bag: 1) Evian water mist (Sephora) 2) Peter Thomas Roth SPF (Sephora) 3) Snack Pack (Harry and David) 4) Emergency kit (Minimus - For All Your Travel Size Item Needs) 5) Photo cookie of my dog (rollingpinproductions.com) 6) Make up (Sephora - I work for them, and my brands hooked me up) 7) Bottled water (not pictured) I had my wedding at the Palmilla a week ago. I probably could have done without the snacks, water bottle and mist since the Palmilla provides these to all guests complimentary. The bag was a jute bag I purchased through a friend.

    DJ Ricardo

    I think you are thinking of DJ Ricardo Patino...? If so, I just used him for my Sept 15th wedding at the Palmilla...he was AWESOME! Very professional, and responsive with emails. The great thing about Ricardo, is that he will play whatever you want and what you don't want. We provided a playlist of about 40 songs to play - and he stuck to the list. I highly recommend giving him a list. Everyone said it was the best music they've heard at a wedding. We also told him songs not to play and if he wanted to improvise then he could. He is very interested in providing what music you want for your party. He also has state of the art equipment. His website: DJ System - disc jockey entertainment in Mexico - dj services for your party in Mexico Use him!

    Platinum Wedding in Cabo!

    I just came back from my wedding at the Palmilla....FABULOUS!! They are amazing over there. Everything was perfect (I plan on sending out an official review in a couple of days) I set up the ballroom like a lounge too, and let me tell you it was my most favorite part of the wedding...AWESOME! It was pricey, but well worth the money. I believe I paid $3,500 - which included a light up bar, draping, 4 light up tables, ottomans, lighting, and plants. Here is the vendor I used: OXTEN I attached a pic of how we set up the ballroom at the Palmilla, hopefully it posted.

    Hurricane watch for CABO!!

    I just got off the phone with my coordinator at the Palmilla, and she said that there is no sand on the beaches, I guess the hurricane washed the sand away. (this is at the Palmilla, not sure about the other resorts). She said that pictures on the beach are going to be ok, but there is no room to lay out on the beach... curious to see what exactly that looks like....
  15. Is anyone doing favors and/or placecards for their DW wedding? I am having 40 ppl, and feeling that it is not necessary.... Perhaps simple placecards, but not favors since I am giving an OOT bag. Thanks!
