Steph's Westin Los Cabos Wedding Review (Long) w/pics

Recommended Posts

Steph- The pictures are great and you look fabulous! Thanks so much for writing the review. It was very helpful, especially since our wedding is next Sunday. I will not let the cake out of my sight! I am using Suzane Morel as well so I am glad you had such nice things to say about them. Its also wonderful that you thought the food was so good. I am going to use an Ipod at my reception dinner, we have a guitartist coming for the ceremony. I guess I can just keep my fingers crossed and hope all goes well!

Thanks!

The sea bass was really good. I even asked for a to go box. The waiter looked at me like I was crazy, but it was so good, and of course, I could hardly eat that day.

We did have food during cocktail. We did passed appetizers, and I had been worried it wasn't enough, and there left overs. We had bruschetta (didn't try it), sausage in a pastry puff (didn't try), the baguette crouton with blue cheese and candied walnuts (so good!), and chicken wing with mango dip (also very good).

Yes, the drinks were good. The bar, we did a basic bar, that I negotiated with Lorena. We had wine, beer, pina coladas, and margaritas, soft drinks, and water. We did this for 4 hours. We had a lot of drinkers in our group, and it turned out perfectly. Everyone drank for the 4 hours and beyond. And, most everyone just drinks beer and wine, so there was not really any reason to have the full on bar there.

Thanks for such a detailed review, it really helps so many brides with decisions when it comes to their own wedding day. Thanks for the tip on Volaris airlines. I live in San Diego too and had no idea this was an option...very exciting! As for the venue, I had the Westin on my list of possible venues for my wedding...knowing what you know now which venue would you have chosen?

Thanks! :) Nicole
Hi Nicole,

I don't know what venue I would have chosen. We really didn't look around because we just fell in love with the Westin!

Volaris is awesome. I was looking into flights to acapulco and puerto vallarta, and you can fly there for less than 200! I can't wait to try them out.

two quick things though:
1) are you glad you used the bamboo to cordon off the ceremony site?

Yes, they left the front open so we could have the ocean view, but it was nice to have that sense of privacy. It was funny, when we were saying our vows, there was someone at the pool yelping whohoo for us!

2) i dont remember seeing the flower petals for the aisle on your BOE - how much were they? they looked absolutely gorgeous!
No, the petals were last minute, and I"m glad I got them. They added some nice color. They were $50.00 for the box or maybe $54.00, but totally worth it.

I'm so happy the food was good. We will go with the sea bass and the chicken one...Did the Westin want to know ahead of time how many wanted the pork and how many the sea bass?

We got basic bar as well and had to really BEG for it! I don't think we got wine in ours?!? Was the wine in the basic bar? wow, that's amazing if it was!

I'm looking into sweet dreams for my cake now..I really want a nice cake and the icing really looks whipped!

Yes, I had to guarantee numbers one month prior.

Yes, I had to beg for our basic bar too. It did come with wine, and the servers served our basic wine instead of us having to come to the bar for it.

Yes, the icing was really whipped, it wasn't buttercream, but they did offer to do a fondant, but I thought we were getting buttercream, so I opted for the no fondant..

Ya cause that looks like whipped cream not butter cream. I think I will ask for fondant. Do you know what the cutting fee is if you bring in a cake?

oh and was your wedding the only wedding of the day at the westin?
