Hilton Los Cabos and hiring a Trio

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

 

Hope everyone is well. Its been about a month since I did my site visit at the Hilton Los Cabos and I'm less than two months out from the wedding....everything is going by so quickly and I am definitely stressing out!

 

Not sure about the other Hilton brides...but I'm beginning to feel as though the hotel only cares about money and is discouraging the use of outside vendors...even though it will save me tons of money. The "we're not responsible for outside vendors" line is getting old...I get that los cabos is expensive...but $4K for flowers for a wedding of 30 guests...that seems crazy! I guess this is why people hire wedding planners!

 

Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox now....does anyone have any recommendations /contact info for a good trio? I'm looking for a group that is professional and classy.

 

Appreciate your help!

 

Mia

Congratulations... What's going on in Cabo is this...

 

All the hotels who never did weddings before saw all the money being made... they want a piece of it. They all think it's easy to do weddings. They DON'T KNOW OR UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH. JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY YOU CAN DO WEDDINGS DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN DO THEM WELL!!

 

I see this problem ALL THE TIME. Example... of course you can bring in you own vendors... they just don't make their "kick back" that way. etc, etc.

we have quite a few brides who have gotten married at the hilton. If you go to the advanced search feature (third from the right on the very top menu) you can search who they used and what all they did. Congrats on your wedding coming up so soon.

Hi Mia,

 

I am getting married at the Hilton in May, and yes, I'm getting stressed, too--I feel your pain. I am am happy to trade our Hilton experiences off-list...i'm at chicagopuja@gmail.com....

 

But I have decided that I'm not using any of their vendors. What I've found is that the Hilton keeps telling me that this and that will be taken care of and that at my site visit they will go over everything....but i know the catch is if i wait til then:

 

1--all other vendors will be booked

 

2- if they don't help me now by email, they think i will wait til the site visit, and be left with no other choice than to go with their vendors and break the bank. why? b/c they assume i won't do my own homework.

 

we have to be smart and go on our own. i found out today they had booked a dj for my wedding without telling me and without telling me the price.

 

i don't know why they assume we have endless amount of money...they sent me cake photos with no prices? it is ridiculous.

 

really frustrated,

Hi Puja--

 

Sorry for the delayed response...I work overseas and never get much of a chance to sign on or check email....and I have a wedding in 45 days....ahhhh! Not sure what i was thinking when I set the date.

 

Anyway, I agree with you on the RIDICULOUS pricing...I have used this forum to locate my own vendors and am only using the Hilton's contacts for the minister and DJ because I was so impressed with both...so in the end, they are worth it.

 

I will touch base with you via email to give you more specific information...but I TOTALLY feel your pain. Which wedding planner are you working with?

 

Talk to you soon,

Mia

I was married at the Hilton in November and only used outside venders. I hired Maye as my WC, and paid $675 TOTAL for all her services. She got us venders for all three nights of events, plus did all the day of coordination. She saved me WAY more than $675 because she got such good prices. My trio for the beach bonfire hired through her was great, and I think they were $300/hr, which was 50% cheaper than the Hiltons.

I did the same and it was money well spent (and saved!). The Hilton's vendors have ridiculously high prices and in some cases they may actually be the same vendors that Maye gets for less. They mentioned a few times about the "we're not responsible for outside vendors" and I was like - "I know. Maye is responsible for them and it's going to be great!" And it was. wink.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
