    Hello ladies! I would like to ask the Cabo brides -- why did you pick Cabo San Lucas over Hawaii, Dominican Republic, Jamaica?

    There are so many CAbo brides on this website and I am just dying to know -- why Cabo?

    I am still deciding on a location and any help would be most appreciated!

      I believe this site started out as a Cabo only forum. Eventually brides who were wanting to get married other places came and it expanded. Eventually it will probably have sections for any place you could ever want to get married if it keeps growing as fast as it is.

      Kudos to Tammy for such a great site!

        welcome-I am not getting married in Cabo, but Jonathon is right, this started out as a cabo forum and has grown to many other places.

          I am originally going to get married in the DR but it was too hard for me to plan a wedding there well at least my hotel of choice...just bad communication, no one would ever get back to me so i got fed up and than found this site when it was cabo still...met tammy and saw her pics at of dreams and knew this was the exact place i wanted to pick....also since ive never been to cabo i wanted something new and exciting as i have been to the DR so many times and cuba, jamaica etc....

          good luck with picking ur location...what have u narrowed it down 2?

            Our original choice was Hawaii. But, it's very expensive and also far away for the people from NY/NJ. My fiance and I chose Los Cabos by first looking at flights from both the east coast and west coast. (His friends are in CA and mine are in NY.) We ruled out Bahamas, Puerto Rico, DR, and Maya Riviera because the flights from Cali were just awful. There were non-stop flights from either coast to Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, but we finally decided on Cabos because the pictures just look so beautiful. I haven't spoken to anyone who has anything bad to say about Cabo, so we're pretty happy with our choice. Hope that helps!

              We choose Cabo based on flights and how easy it was for everyone to get too. Also, when we got married you didn't need a passport to go to Mexico so that was another bonus. Most of my family is in Dallas, and there are daily flights out of there, and its a short flight. Cabo just worked out the best and it was a new place for both of us!

                  My fiance loves Cabo and we both love the idea of getting married near the beach. We're from San Diego (by the beach), but thought it would be fun to have DW with everyone we love...sort of a group honeymoon. We never thought of Jamaica, and Hawaii (though we didn't research it too much) seemed like it would be a lot more expensive for us and our guests. But, after planning a Cabo wedding, it still seems really expensive. ....Mexico isn't cheap anymore! :)

                  Good luck with your decision!
