It seems to have gotten better since, so if you have any friends (or you) that are fluent give that a try!
    Hi KatyR, thanks for the idea I have an aunt who is fluent, but I won't see her until Christmas and I can ask her if she wouldn't mind calling Gretel later this weekend, since Christmas Eve and Christmas day are in the middle of the week. But in the meantime, I heard back from Cindy from Signature Weddings Mexico (Signature Weddings : Los Cabos wedding consultation and design). She was really quick to respond when I PM'd her. Glad to hear things got better for you when your friend called. The last time I heard anything from Gretel was last Wednesday and it was just to let me know they would be working on the wedding contract and would let me know when it is finished.

    I hope my date doesn't get booked in the meantime...but I'd like to think she wouldn't do that.

I highly recommend having your own wedding coordinator in addition to Gretel, as she really is swamped all the time and travels a lot. She also tends to only answer some of the questions you ask. It helps when I list out my questions and number them. I also call when I feel like its been too long since I have gotten a reply.
      Overall, they have a reputation of not being that easy to work with (I have heard this from multiple coordinators, my hair and makeup person, and other vendors LOL), but things do get done, so don't dispair!
      I've planning on getting married at the Villa Group Resort, April 16th, 2009. Gretel has been great with inital information, now I'm just waiting for the contract, which I hope doesn't take too long. We're having the beach ceremony by Villa Del Palmar, and then the reception either at California Terrace or the terrace at La Perla or El Faro (del Arco). LOL can you tell we're still in the decision mode?

      Thanks for the info about Gretel's schedule. Helps to understand what's going on ..on their side of things, so I can be a bit more patient.

      I know I'm way behind compared to other brides getting married. But this forum really helps a lot!

      Can anyone recommend a good outside wedding coordinator to help?
