wedding details??

Recommended Posts

HELLO

 

i was just wondering how much do you have to have planned and booked before you get down to the resort. I am completely overwhelmed because i hear that you wait until you get down there to make most of the plans but i don't want to wait and not get what i wanted. if anyone has any suggestions i would really appreciate it. Thanks so much

Hmm not sure what you mean by "wait till you get down there" are you doing a site visit soon? Anyway the first think I booked was the photog then the WC then she booked the judge. I would say if you already know the resort your going to get married at and the date is reserved I would look for a photog asap, they go quick, even more so if your wedding is on a weekend. it worked out wall for us because we wanted to get married on our anniversay which happen to fall on a Tuesday so we haven't really ran into any problems.... Yet...

i agree with tammy..

 

book your photographer...do not wait, the better ones book early.

 

also, ask the WC at riu to send you a menu so you can pick out possible dinner choices and have a tasting when you get there.

 

also, send them pics of flowers and cakes you want and see if they can do it and how much.

We tried to have all of our appointments scheduled before the site visit. We met with two photographers to meet them. If you can, I would highly recommend this. We met with 2 that are both very popular on this board, but after meeting with them, only really connected with one. We also did our cake tasting (which I dont know if you need at an AI). We went to ton of restaurants so that we could find one for the RD, and we arranged the tastings with the hotel.

I did a site visit in May 2006 for a June 2007 wedding. Prior to the site visit, I had selected 3/4 properties and had looked over all of the packages etc. While in Cabo we met with just one planner, visited a florist (whom we are not using), dj, photographer (whom we are not using), baker, and videographer. I had pretty much decided prior to arriving in Cabo what I wanted to it was very easy. Now I am just working on the fine details like linen, stationary, favors etc.

 

So, if you are planning a trip at least one year out then you can wait. If not then I suggest that you book some vendors now. Cabo is also becoming an increasingly popular destination. I also agree with Tammy and Tammy, photographers book first followed by bakers. We're bringing a photographer with us so that wasn't an issue. depending upon the date and location that may be booked as well.

 

By using this site, a lot of the hard work is done for you. There is a wealth of information here... you almost don't have to visit. Granted that I had never been to Mexico I wasn't going to let my first visit be the week of my wedding.

 

Good luck and hope that helps.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
