      Of course I have to plug my location- Dreams Cabo. It's very popular, but it's popular for a reason! They do an incredible job, the location is fab, the food and service are awesome and the onsite wedding coordinators are on top of their game. Even after learning all the cool places there are to get married, if I had to do it again I'd still pick Dreams.

      Good luck with your search!

        Las Caletas, Mexico of course!! (BTW I'm pretty sure we're all biased and will all vote for our own..lol)

        There are lots of pretty places but how many can you take a private open-bar boat to and from and feel like you are on a deserted island?

        A few selling points:

        ~ Unparalelled privacy (no onlookers, the only people at your wedding are your guests/staff)

        ~ No roads = no city noise/traffic

        ~ Nature!! Look left - no hotels...look right - no hotels...look straight - ocean!

        ~ Jungle & beach in one

        ~ Bridal casita - high up in the jungle, it's yours for the day complete w/jacuzzi and next door to the spa

        ~ Surprisingly affordable and consistently the best wedding coordinators I hear about here


        I'm sure Ann will be here soon to echo these points and make some of her own :o)

          I think everyone picks their wedding location based on their needs, family needs and the "feel" they got of the resort. With that said, we decided on "Sheraton, Cabo" because the over all feel was exactly what I was looking for.

          I know when I was in the beginning stages of my planning I read many reviews and in pictures all the resorts looked great, but it wasn't until I actually went their that I was able to find the perfect one for me. My point is, everyone is attracted to different things which is why everyone choices a different places

              Thanks guys!
              The link helped starchild! I forgot to mention i'm having a very private wedding, preferably on beach or cliff/close to water. One most important factor is not busy or "tourist" location. Also, finances is a must for my family to be able to travel, only 20-30 family/friends, would love a private beautiful modern villa to bunk immediate family the night of?

              Keep em comin!

                Sounds like my wedding!
                Start looking for small resorts. I purposely chose a small resort because I didnt want people walking through my wedding. My resort only allows 38 people at once and its the only resort on the entire island. Rent a Villa or something like that. Here are some places in the South Pacific for you to think about . It is quite expensive but during certain seasons you can get great airfare from CA

                    I would have LOVED to have gotten married in Fiji! But coming from the east coast I think I would have spent more time flying than anything else. And I know my family wouldn't have been able to afford it, but it looks beautiful!!
