    Thanks for letting me know! I'll keep your florist in mind. I was referred to Floreria Rayen by another bride here on BDW so we're emailing her. She seems really nice, and we're waiting on an estimate from her. Hopefully that'll work out for us!

    Okay so I was referred by my resort a florist called Floreria Colores Del Desierto, Margarita Alarcon (margarita@coloresdeldesierto.com). I contacted the Margarita and it has been so easy to get a quote from her. I first ask how much it would be to by flowers by the stem. Margarita quote was well priced and she didn't overcharge me. Usually my experience with other florist was that overcharge me so they can do the flower arrangements themselves but she didn't do that. So then I had asked her how much it would be if she would make my arrangements. She made a list of how much each individual item would be and how much flowers I needed if I wanted to make them myself.  Overall I am so happy with her quote and she gave me a really really good price. Believe me when I say this because I have called numerous florists (about 15), thought about doing fake flowers, and price how much it would be to fly in my flowers. Hope this helps.

      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.

        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 :)

               


              Getting married June 30, 2011 :)

                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!
