    I just booked him for my wedding at Hyatt Ziva on 5/24/2014. He was very quick to respond and his pricing was within our budget. Hoping for the best!
  2. 5/24/2014 at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos (currently Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe but changing over November 2013)!!! Sending out invitations this week and now starting to look at photographers (Alec & T maybe?) and hair/makeup (Suzanne Morel?). Got my dress but need to get my fiance and bridesmaids/groomsman dressed!

    Barcelo Los Cabos

    My fiance and I are negotiating a contract with the Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe for our wedding in May of 2014. I am so excited! A friend of mine was married here in April of 2012 and said it was like a fairy tale and she would not have changed a thing. I'll provide more details once we get our contract signed! The resort is beautiful, close to the airport (had a friend that recently attended a destination wedding at Dreams in Tulum and really disliked the 2 hour ride from the airport to the resort), welcomes all ages, singles and couples and has great food and bars (from what I have been told).
  4. Good question Tiffany! So my fiance and I are considering Barcelo Maya Palace for our wedding. I LOVE the gazebo but are concerned that the location will not be very private. Any advice on that? Will there be random guests standing around watching our ceremony? And what's the story with Azul Beach? I have read that they no longer offer that location? Did most of your guests stay at the Palace or at one of the other resorts? Were you able to see everyone and hang out during the day?
  5. Anyone still following this thread? My fiance and I are very close (hopefully within a week) to booking our wedding at either Sandals Negril or Beaches Negril. The reason we are debating between the two is because we will have some "singles" attending the wedding and possibly some younger children. My TA told me that the children would be allowed over at Sandals only for the private functions, which is fine. But I don't want anyone to feel out of place... Anyways, the date we want is January 11, 2014. We are going to be inviting quite a few people (maybe 200?) because my fiance has a huge family. There are people we know won't go but feel we have to send an invitation to anyways. Hoping to keep total guest count around 50. Here is what I am thinking: Private rehearsal dinner (should get this free due to # of rooms likely to be booked) Ceremony on the beach or gazebo overlooking beach @ 4 p.m. (beautiful beginnings package is just fine - keeping things simple) 1 hour cocktail reception (should get this free due to # of rooms likely to be booked) - Steel drum band for 1 hour? 2 hour private dinner reception (should be $45/person for the buffet if my TA is correct) - iPod/speakers for music Hit up the piano bar to party the night away! *Out of town bags (personalized best of Bob Marley CD, personalized can coozies, etc.) *Hair and makeup...might do on my own but I have read good reviews about their stylists and would like airbrush makeup if possible Any tips? Anything I should add? Anything I shouldn't do?
