  1. Our priest recommended a musician to us for church music. When we called her we found out it was her and her husband, and a third guy. Between them all, they played- keyboard, harp, flute, drums, and singing. They charge $250/hr which was an amazing deal. We were a little reluctant to hire them for our cocktail music as well at the hotel. This was a great decision. They played for an hour at the hotel and they sounded beautiful. The husband and wife are music teachers and really have a passion for music. They played traditional songs at the church and then also "All you need is love" by the Beatles, and Disney's "A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes". She also sang quite possibly the prettiest rendition of "Ave Maria" ever. Both sounded really good. At the cocktail hour it was Sinatra and such. For the church and cocktail hour, it came out to less than $500. Her name is Esperanza and she is such a sweet heart. She wanted to meet us before the wedding to get a sense of our style and just say hi. She ended up showing us around town too because she was so nice. Luckily my husband is fluent in Spanish, but she does speak a little English. Her email is esperanzacabos@hotmail.com
  2. Senza Salon- I posed something in the vendor reviews. The other options for hair and makeup are WAY overpriced.

  4. DJ Ron was great. He also did our wedding. He is super easy to work with and very thorough.
  5. I brought a TON of candles in my carryon and I had a bit of an issue getting through Mexican customs. They didn't end up charging us, but we had to explain quite a bit.
  6. I've seen so many reviews for Neysa Berman and Suzanne Morel, but these people are totally taking advantage of brides thinking that the need to spend a million bucks to look perfect. I got my hair and makeup done at Senza salon right across from the Home Depot. They also will come to the hotel, but then it turns in to almost double the price. The salon manager, Leslie, let my bridesmaids and I use a spa room to get ready before the wedding. It was great. She was so accommodating. I was easily able to email her with any questions leading up to the wedding. She always responded within 24 hours. I did a hair trial a few days beforehand for $60 and then my hair and makeup on my wedding day came to around $125. During my hair trial I brought pictures and explained how I wanted it just slightly different on my wedding day. It came out exactly like I wanted it. This was WAY less expensive than the other two people. I am sure Neysa and Suzanne do excellent work, but if you put a model from Senza, Suzanne, and Senza together there is no way you could tell the difference. Senza was great. The email for the salon is info@senza.com.mx
  7. Hi! The wedding person to talk to is Ana Guajardo at weddings@haciendaencantada.com. She can help. I am trying to find out more. She isn't the best at responding to emails so resend it if you don't hear back from her within 48 hours. Good luck!
  8. Blissloscabos, it's been a while since anyone posted here. I am also looking for a reasonably priced welcome/rehearsal dinner. I am hoping for under $50 per person for food and drink. I am definitely not looking for anything fancy, although an ocean view would be nice. I would most appreciate any ideas you have. Thanks!
  9. Has anyone brought their own linens to Cabo? It seems super cheap to buy online, but when you get there- what do you do? Do you rent a steamer somewhere to get the wrinkles out or iron them in your hotel room? I can't seem to figure out logistics, but it is SO cheap to order online.
  10. My Wonderful Hacienda Encantada Wedding

    Pros: Absolutely stunning resort, Staff learned your name and I think better than Ritz Carlton staff which means a lot, stunning views
    Cons: Food was just ok, Slow service
    My wedding was better than I could have hoped for.  I did a lot of research using this site, tripadvisor and a few other websites.  I looked for the best value that I could find in Cabo and I am positive that this was it.  For 2 people my guests paid $230 for a room and some people even found better package deals on travelocity.  The resort was all inclusive which we definitely got our value from the pool and tequila bar drinking.  I am so glad all our guests stayed at the HE.  We loved running
