  1. We were married at SDML on June 30, 2011 and it was amazing! David (the events manager) was amazing to work with and delivered on everything!! The food was amazing, the venue is gorgeous, and the service was awesome! We had our ceremony on the terrace, the dinner in the City Lights area, and then we rented out the Sunset Lounge upstairs privately for our party/dancing. Our guests were amazed at how beautiful SDML was and everyone raved about the food. We were originally going to get married at the resort we were staying at (Barcelo) but decided we didn't want the cookie cutter resort wedding and were not happy with how the wedding department there was treating us (never returning emails or phone calls, wedding coordinators quitting, etc). In the end we ended up spending more having the wedding at SDML, but it was totally worth it! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask
  2. We just got married on June 30th and we used Suzanne Morel's company for our hair and makeup. The day before the wedding I went into Cabo to her salon/spa and had my hair and makeup trial as well as a manicure and pedicure for myself and my sister (Maid of Honor). On the day of the wedding 3 lovely ladies came to our resort to do our hair and makeup. One lady did hair, one did makeup, and the other was the coordinator who translated for us and ensured things ran smoothly. I could not have been more impressed with both the work they did and with the service they provided! They were great to work with and my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself were blown away with the quality of their work. My sister is a makeup artist and hair stylist so we have pretty high standards, and we were completely impressed. They use high quality makeup (MAC, Bobbi Brown) and are very talented and skilled. Our hair and makeup held up well through the night and we got a lot of compliments. I would definitely highly recommend using Suzanne Morel's company for your wedding day!

  3. I bought this wedding dress in October and it just recently came in. We decided to change venues and this dress no longer works for what we are going for in terms of the style of the wedding. http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/26534/Paloma-Blanca-4106-Size-6.html This dress is beautiful- natural raw silk in a cream color. The sash with the flower is not attached so you can wear it or go without it, or even add a different one. The dress is surprisingly light weight and is very figure flattering. I had originally spoken with the seamstress about the option of making the bottom part detachable, which I thought would be a fun option (it can be done)! A beautiful dress that I hope goes to a good home. It's a size 10 but I typically wear a 4-6 in street clothes. All I have are pictures from the internet as I don't even have any of me in it. You can see better pictures if you go to www.palomablanca.com and search for dress 4106.

  7. Hi cl2001, My fiance and I are getting married in Cabo this June. Us and our 40 guests are staying at the Barcelo resort, but we aren't having our wedding there. We're going to have our wedding at Sunset Da Mona Lisa (sunsetmonalisa.com) which has a beautiful terrace overlooking the ocean! Worth checking out if this is what you're looking for. If you and your guests aren't going to be staying at a resort then it would not be cost effective to have your wedding at a resort- you would have to pay for a guest pass for each person on top of the cost of the wedding. There are lots of great venues in Cabo that I discovered in my research. If you're planning it from afar it may be worth your money to hire a wedding coordinator to help you out. It may seem like a lot to spend on one, but their expertise and knowledge of good vendors (for flowers, cake, etc etc) will save you headache, time, and money in the end. That's been my experience anyways! Happy planning
  8. I'm using Rachel Hansen and she has been amazing!! Hiring her has definitely the best decision we've made! http://www.infinity-cabo.com/ rachel@infinity-cabo.com

  11. Hi Zahra! Welcome to the forum! I must say that I am so so so happy we hired Rachel to help us coordinate the wedding! She has been amazing! Our venue is 20-25 minutes from Barcelo. We hired transportation to drive guests back and forth from the venue to the resort. There are a few different transportation companies in Cabo from what I understand. There are a variety of different vehicles you can rent- vans, suburbans, escalades, limos, and cars, and obviously varying prices. If you have more questions feel free to contact me!
  12. Thank you Victoria! I am much happier now that we've changed venues- I can finally be excited instead of stressed out! Where are you getting married at now?
