  1. Hey Ladies, Thought I would quickly comment on the fabulous service I received from both Bradley Fraser, our photographer, and Mango Productions, as our videographer/photographer. Bradley Fraser is an extremely laid back, yet very attentive man. He made sure to contact me several times prior to the wedding date, and also showed up two hours before the ceremony to check out the resort and determine the best spots for photos. He caters to what YOU want from your special day. We were extremely happy with his photos and professionalism! Mango Productions - we hadn't planned on getting a videographer for our wedding but this last minute decision really paid off! It isn't your typical long winded wedding video that you sit and watch for hours. There are two versions, one is 24 minutes long, and the other is a recap of the day all in 3 minutes! The song selection is fantastic, and the video looks awesome. Mango also took pictures of our wedding ceremony as part of the Riu package and those were also stunning. Something to consider for upcoming Cabo brides!!! Nadia
  2. Hey Ladies! Congrats KAYLEE on your marriage! The last shot of whateveritwas at the club really put me over the edge LOL! It was a fantastic night, and really nice seeing you there! I too had my hair done with Suzanne and ironically met Kaylee at the salon! Her hair was gorgeous. I did not have a clue as to what I wanted done with my hair...I just imagined that it would be all up and have a messy curly look...well I totally didn't tell her what I wanted, and the end result was somewhat of a 'greek princess' look. I received tonnes of compliments on it, but it took me a while to get used to it (only because it was not what I imagined, which was TOTALLY my fault!!!!). Now when looking back at the pics, I absolutely LOVED it!!!! Her team is wonderful, and Suzanne won't let you leave the salon until your 100% satisfied. She is very honest and upfront. She doesn't take offense to any of your concerns either - she just corrects them for you. I would totally return to Suzanne if I ever needed to - fantastic job. I also had my makeup done there - again, great. I am not a makeup person, so it again was hard to get used to! But she knows exactly what shades to use, etc. Good luck to all the future Cabo brides!! Nadia
  3. Hey Cabo Residents! Any updates?! Bradley/Rev Marco - thanks for the links! We'll see you both on Thursday! Hopefully without Odlie!
  4. I'm thinking Sun - fiance is thinking 'damn, look how good the weather is going to be in Toronto and we're getting sloshed by Norbert in Mexico!!!'. Our temps in toronto are going to be fantastic next week LOL and we've been having crap weather this whole time! Ah well...still can't wait!!!

  7. Excited Kaylee?? Are you flying from your hometown? We're flying out of Toronto but I've got a couple friends coming from Alberta I believe on the Saturday! I'll probably run in to you on the resort Wishing you all the best!! Don't stress out about the weather...I'm more concerned with my music then the weather! LOL

  10. I never saw a 'free' option when you go to the riu weddings website, and when I checked yesterday, I saw it there. They had free wedding packages for Riu's in Mexico, but I remember seeing Los Cabos as an exception! My planner hasn't emailed me back yet about it lol.
  11. Don't let this ruin your day. Everyone you're talking about are adults. If his mother is going to act that way towards her own blood, then maybe shes better off not coming if she chooses to do so. If the father can handle the arrangement, then there is no reason why your FMIL should make a scene. Its your day, its your FH's day, not hers. Hope that helps
  12. OK - so they are starting this in November 2008! How clever - our wedding is the 16th LOL. They better pamper me with a room upgrade at least!!
  13. Hey! When I booked my wedding, there was no FREE option! Is this something new on the site? I booked a Royal package, but what makes it worth $1500 over FREE?! If anyone knows, please pass the info on Nadia
  14. Hey Kaylee, What time are you meeting Suzanne with your ceremony at 2pm? We have a 4pm ceremony, and I have contacted her to see if she can prep us when shes finished with you guys! Nadia
