Most Amazing Wedding EVER at Cabo Surf!
Posted 10 April 2008 - 11:16 PM
Cabo Surf- I cannot stress enough how wonderful this place was. Let's just say I have been a little high maintenance as a bride but Armando and his crew took it all in stride. The people who work there could not have been nicer. They will bend over backwards for you to make it happen. The place is awesome! We were lucky enough to have rented out the entire place from Thursday-Sunday so it was a huge private party all weekend! On Thursday night we threw a welcome party on the lawn area. I had mexican appetizers from 7:00-8:00 and margaritas and beers from 7:00-9:00. This was such a great way to kick off the wedding festivities! If it's in your budget, go for it! The guys at Cabo Surf totally set it up like a lounge with their beach furniture, candles and lighting. I was really surprised and so happy. Everyone had a blast! The margaritas are really strong there too so everyone had a good time to say the least. After, we hung out at the bar. The waiters totally stayed late and they let us be as loud as we wanted. The food at Cabo Surf is AMAZING. One of my moms biggest worries was that people would get tired of the food and spending the money to eat there. This was so NOT the case. No one ever got tired of it. There's quesadillas, blt's, salads and the most amazing breakfast ever. I gained a few pounds there! The only complaint I had was with the wedding food. We had gone over the menu prior and decided on filet and jumbo prawns. I don't know if we ran over on time for the cocktail hour but our food was a little on the cool side when it got to us. The filet was really tender but it was a lot smaller and flatter than what I had anticipated. SO, kind of disappointed with the wedding food but no one seemed to mind and I didn't let it bother me. If you have any other questions about Cabo Surf, please let me know! This will definitely be a vacation spot for us in years to come!!

DJ Ricardo- Super nice guy. I left Patrick in charge of talking to him about the music. He met with us Thursday and went over the music. He even came early to set up his speakers at the ceremony because I wanted a specific song to walk down the aisle to. Patrick is super picky about music so he had this whole playlist on his ipod ready for Ricardo. Turns out, Patrick lost his IPOD at the pool so Ricardo was on his own. Sooo, the music was great wedding music. All your typical stuff. It kept people dancing so I guess that's all we cared about. He did take requests from people and one request was a song no one really knew. I told him to cut it and he went into something else. If you don't want people to request songs, tell your DJ! He was really nice though and you can tell he only wanted to please the bride and groom. Patrick even planned a surprise for me where he sang to me in the middle of his speech and Ricardo helped him organize it. Super mello, wonderful guy.

So, once again as I'm in my room getting ready I see my flowers go by. Well first my mom brings in MY bouquet and she had a weird look on her face. (You can probably tell by now my mom has had her own ideas about how things should look) She tells me it's really small but pretty. Initial thought, wow that is small but looking at it more, it was gorgeous. First, I'm a small girl so if I had a big bouquet it would have overwhelmed me. Second, I forgot to add that I had brought my own ostrich feathers and ribbon to make my bouquet with. It sounds funny but the feathers went with my whole wedding look and turned out to make the bouquet. The orchids were gorgeous in it. I wish the white roses were a little more open instead of so closed but all in all, I loved it!
My BM bouquets were also VERY small. However, the colors of the flowers were gorgeous. Word to the wise: my BM's bouquets were wilting before we walked down the aisle. It's so true about the heat. It was only about 83 degrees too!! They had to hold them super high so the hydrangaes wouldn't fall over. The table centerpieces were also gorgeous in color but once again small. It was fine because there's so much glassware that really takes up the whole table. Bottom line: Flowers in Cabo are SUPER expensive. If you can do it where you use the beach elements instead (sand, shells, coral) I would do it! I probably spent $1500 on flowers and there were not even that many! Towards the end I also cut off things like mother bouquets, father boutinierre etc. and was so glad I did!
