Cabo OR Bust

Newbie Hilton or Villa or ?? Decisions!?!

Recommended Posts

I do not think $10k is feasible for 40-60 people at the Hilton. That $100pp is JUST food (there's a 10% tax and an additional 15% service fee) and that's basically one of the cheaper menus as well and no apps!

 

Sorry sad.gif

 

BUT there are tons of other great places that are more affordable. What about an AI like Dreams, Cabo Real, RUI?

After setting a date with Hilton, FI looked at prices and asked me to get quotes from Dreams Los Cabos.

 

UGH! I feel like I've taken 3 steps back due to budget...I wish it were easier but i guess it's part of the planning. I think after reading the thread that Dreams would be more suitable for my budget...apprx. 40-50 ppl, stay at 10k (if possible), 15k max. Do you think that's possible?

Welcome to the forum, everything can be crazy overwhelming at first, Once you pick a place things should be a little more under control haha or atleast thats how its went for me!

Dreams will be cheaper for you, maybe more expensive for your guests (just because of the nature of all-inclusive), but I guess it depends on your room rates. There are lots of girls on the board who had amazing Dreams weddings for the kind of budget you're talking about. The Hilton is gorgeous but more $$? More current brides should be able to help you out...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
