    I did enough research on here to know that Lunas De Fuego are the best fire dancers in Cabo. I am trying really hard to do all of my vendor bookings myself and not hire a WC (thanks to all of the information on this forum ). So far so good...I have booked my own photographer, video, sweet Dreams for cake and Suzanne Morel for hair/make-up.

    I am getting really nervous about the fire dancers though. I contacted them on my own and they are telling me my date is reserved (5/16/09) but every time I email them to ask about signing a contract to guarantee my date I never hear back from them!

    I remember reading on here from a while ago that Lunas De Fuego can be kind of flaky. Do you guys think I should give in and hire a WC? or do you think they will show? I still need to hire a really fun DJ and hire someone for flowers (if any of you have suggestions please share).

    Thanks!

      I hired cabo flowers and Dj ricardo. Both have very good reviews. Good luck!

        Seems like you have your wedding planned! I don't think you need to hire a WC just for that reason. I hired them too and didn't sign a contract. But I did hire them thru Maye...

          DJ Ricardo seems very popular with Cabo brides. I just emailed him to find out his rates. Thanks ladies.

          As far as your flowers. Did you like their work? Were their prices reasonable?

          we booked dj ricardo too :) Also I booked Lunas de Fuego on my own, and just had Maye contact them after they had already secured a rate with me directly. I don't think you need a wc, we got one just because on the wedding day itself I didn't want to have to be in charge of anything.

            I heard back from DJ Ricardo. He quoted me $225/hour. I guess that's pretty standard. I am going to book him....I think.

            Ana, I remember you telling me you were only using Maye for the day of your wedding. Do you mind me asking how much she charging you for the day? I think you told me but I have lost track of numbers during the entire wedding planning process.

              Um I can't remember the exact amount...I have to check my spreadsheet at home but I think its about $1250. :) I'm losing track of everything...even my mind apparently ha ha!

                You are right! She emailed me today. It's $1250 plus 10% tax. It has been pretty easy to book all my vendors on my own so far but I am worried about the day of. I feel like it's going to be so stressful and I am not sure I can handle the extra stress of making sure all my vendors are paid and on time.

                I need to decide soon if I am going to use her!

                Thanks for your help!
