Hello ladies,

I'm going to need a lot of help! We just found out fiance has gotten a company trip for two to the Marquis Los Cabos arriving Feb 25 and leaving March 1, 2007. That's less than a month away! We were wondering if we could turn this into an elopement wedding, just the two of us! We don't have a lot of $'s but were hoping we could do something! There's just the two of us...I was hoping for a pretty place, a small bouquet, perhaps a cake for two of us in the room (my wishes) and perhaps someone to snap a couple pictures to prove we actually finally managed to get married (his wish). We've been engaged since Aug '03- we're older than the typical couple with college age children and 2 sets of aging parents with medical issues-need we say more! Any help would be greatly appreciated in trying to make this happen.

Thanks, Leslie

WOW, I would be stressed if I were in your shoes.. lol

 

Have you contacted the resort yet to see what wedding packages they have? Also if your wanting a legal wedding you will have to hire a WC so that they can handle the paperwork, booking of judge and blood work. You'll also need to send them some info ahead of time.

 

We can recommend photographers and WC if you need that.

Wow - this sounds like fun! I am sure you can pull something like this off -the trick might be to make it a legal ceremony, since the paperwork can be a little tricky. I am making mine legal in the US, so I don't have a ton of advice there, but some girls might.

 

I'd definitely contact the wedding coordinator at the resort and tell her what you'd like to do - she should be able to help. Also, the Cabo brides on here should be able to offer more tips as well.

 

Let us know how it turns out!

Leslie-

I think that is so much fun and totally doable! Just contact the resort ASAP to see if they have a coordinator. The first thing you need to do right away is line up the judge. If you do it on a day other than Saturday, you should be able to get one. Here is the info on their website. I am sure it would be less than they quote since you already have your room.

I'd love to know who you're using as a WC and a photographer...unfortunately the coordinator at the Marquis is being less than helpful. It has me VERY frustrated right from the beginning! I was hoping they'd have a nice little package to work with and I'd go from there...no such luck so far.
Thanks!

Leslie...WELCOME!
I am getting married in Cancun in October.....I'm sure that your frustrated, but hang in there and it will all play out! I would prob. start by hiring a wedding cord. That will ease your mind a bit!
Good luck and let me know if there is anything that I can help with!

    • 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?
