Post Here if You Are Getting Married in Cabo!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

My name is Crystal. I got engaged to my fiance Trey in November of 2010. We are having a long engagement and plan on getting marries in Los Cabos in November of 2012.

 

But of course I'm totally clueless on how to get started! I am particularly not interested in staying at a resort, so considering that I'm not sure how to go about a wedding in Cabo. I'm okay with having the wedding itself at a resort but if it's more cost effective to have it elsewhere I'd much prefer that! A terrace is what I am hoping for most, but the beach with a deck would be great as well.

 

Any tips or help is much appreciated! Getting married in Cabo makes me excited but nervous because I don't know anyone with experience getting married outside of a resort. undecided.gif

Congratulations Crystal! I totally understand because I'm getting married outside a resort as well. But you've given yourself plenty of time to plan, which is good!! I started with a lot of researching - on the internet and looking through this forum. There's a lot of information here and a lot of reviews for resorts as well as individual vendors. Send me a PM if you have specific questions. Good luck and happy planning!

Hi cl2001,

 

My fiance and I are getting married in Cabo this June. Us and our 40 guests are staying at the Barcelo resort, but we aren't having our wedding there. We're going to have our wedding at Sunset Da Mona Lisa (sunsetmonalisa.com) which has a beautiful terrace overlooking the ocean! Worth checking out if this is what you're looking for.

 

If you and your guests aren't going to be staying at a resort then it would not be cost effective to have your wedding at a resort- you would have to pay for a guest pass for each person on top of the cost of the wedding. There are lots of great venues in Cabo that I discovered in my research. If you're planning it from afar it may be worth your money to hire a wedding coordinator to help you out. It may seem like a lot to spend on one, but their expertise and knowledge of good vendors (for flowers, cake, etc etc) will save you headache, time, and money in the end. That's been my experience anyways!

 

Happy planning :)

I just checked out the website for the venue you are using and it is incredible! So different than a typical resort DW! I cannot wait to see your wedding pictures, your guests are going to love this setting!

Hi!!!!  Would you be willing to sell your wedding dress? My client wants this dress and I was thinking of saving her money by finding someone who has it!  If so, we can explore this - you can call me at veronica@blueivyevents.com or call 617 642 0448. Thanks!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
