Casa Del Mar Bride
Posted 20 February 2007 - 01:31 AM
I'm new to the site and I'm getting married on 10/27/07 at Casa Del Mar.
Here is what I have so far...
WC- Amy Abbot- Fiesta Los Cabos
Photographer- Juan Carlos Tapia
Site- Casa Del Mar
I have yet to pick out my flowers, cake, welcome dinner site, dj, videograhper, trio... yeah- I'm way behind!!
Anyone have any suggestions for flowers- I don't want to go for anything to elaborate, since the guests will not be able to take them home.
Thanks for your help!!!

What colors are you thinking? We kept our flowers really simple and used limes in our centerpieces because they are cheap and vibrant (and Mexico-y!). For video I'd recommend Marcie - her screen name on this board is BVP.
Do you want your welcome dinner in Cabo, San Jose, or on the corridor?

I think she may have done pink gerber daisies (which match the bougainvilla)... but I can't remember if that's true or not!

Yes - Dino photographed my wedding. He was absolutely wonderful to work with and he knows Casa Del Mar and the lighting very well. I did not have a video done but I can highly recommend him for photography.
As Kash said, I had my wedding at CDM. I did pink gerber daisies and did like how they blended with the plants around the hotel. You really don't need a lot of decorations or flowers.
Here's my advice:
-Do the cake via the hotel. They have a great tres leches and they replicated the cake style that I wanted. I had it included in the cost for dinner by removing a bunch of hte other dessert offerings (totally didn't need those).
-If you can afford $675 - have firedancers.
-See if you can get CDM to do your welcome dinner there for $40-50 per person. If you pay just a bit more, they'll decorate the area with very cool stuff (tell them you want their Mexican fiesta look). Plus, they'll include a bonfire and your guests can roast their own marshmellows. Here's a picture - we didn't pay extra for any of this nor did we have to involve ourselves in any decisions - they did it all.
-Do pay per drink - it saved us A TON - especially for the welcome dinner as our guests were so liquered up by that time they didn't want anything else to drink.
-You can get CDM to agree to a $40 pp menu and the food is really good.
