Hello,

I'm planning a wedding in Mexico for February 2009. I have been reviewing all the great info on this site regarding locations, but I am now stuck between Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. My FH loves the gazebo at the Riu Jalisco in PV, but I really love some of the sites/resorts in Cabo.

The other issue is expenses for our guests because we want to do an all inclusive. From my research it looks like PV may be a little cheaper for our guests. Any information you can offer on AI's in Cabo or PV would be great. Is it even realistic to think that we can get rates for about $800-$1000 per person for say 3 nights?

I'm running out of time and need to make decision soon, I look forward to your feedback.

Well I am sure you can't go wrong with either one of them judging by pictures! I went to Cabo for my friends wedding. We stayed at the Dreams Resort and it was by far the best place I have ever been. There was nothing that I could complain about. She had 22 guest and everyone fell in love. Hope that where ever you pick is wonderful for you.

Hey there- You are correct I looked into this option also.

We are staying at the Dreams Resort in PV which is running $130 pp a night all-inclusive. I believe in Feb it runs a little more. We are having our ceremony at the resort then shuttling everyone to a private villa on the beach about 3 mins away from the resort. If you would like more information on pricing and such please PM me. Best of luck.

 

Check out thedazzlingdetails.com and plushcatering.com those are who we are using for our wedding and we are very pleased with teh costs.

 

Best

I think you will find that PV is a tad cheaper than Cabo. I think it's primarily due to the popularity of Cabo.

 

We stayed at Barcelo de la Jolla Mismaloya. While it's further away from town, (just south of Dreams) my guests were able to say for 7 days ranging $1200-1500 pp. This includes airfare.

 

The food was good- although Dreams has more variety of A la Cartes. But the price is under what Dreams charges. We originally wanted to stay at Dreams, but we decided on Barcelo because it was more affordable for our guests.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

You can work with that budget in Cabo, our wedding is at Dreams... I know rates change, but there are a ton of choices. I would read wedding reviews and look at pics. That worked for us, we just researched this site and read trip advisor reviews! Go on u-tube as well! Lot of wedding videos! You'll know what you want when you see it! Both locations are G-R-E-A-T! Best of luck to you!

Thanks for all of the great information, I really appreciate it. I will keep all this in mind and be in touch if any other questions come up. I am glad to know that $800-$1000 (including air) is reasonable for both locations.

 

Thanks again!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
