    I love the idea of very person vows to each other and a sunset cruise. I think that would be so romantic!

      Ooh I LOVE Glenda's idea. Except I would do the whole thing AT the One & Only if it was me. I'm totally wishing that was what we were doing instead of bringing our stupid families...omg- did I just say that? Bad bride, bad bride...lol

        You guys would have the dinner at the one and only? hmm do they allow you to just do dinner there? Anyone have pictures of their resturants?

          I think what you want to do is an awesome idea. One of our reasons for going alone is that I always say "on the day after our wedding I dont want to be sitting poolside with my father. I want to be with my wife". We figured that the best way to make such an important day be all about us is to have just the two of us there. No distractions or other people to worry about or cater to.

          Our plans are................. Ceremony at 10. Cake/lunch/etc right after. Beach time during the afternoon. And then probably a dinner for the two of us on the beach in the evening.

            Jason are you doing a small wedding cake or are you ordering off the menu for your cake?

              Not exactly sure yet Tammy. I believe we have a few cake types to choose from that are included in our wedding package. We are not too picky about it since its just us. We just want a little cake for us to cut.

                See Tammy? Jason and Karen's private ceremony sounds so wonderful. What if you did it at the One & Only? You could ride up in the little carriage ride. So romantic. Did you ever see the couple on Juan's slideshow (on his webpage) that had a private 2 person ceremony at the One & Only? There is one couple that is older and then there is a younger couple who exchanged vows in the chapel. It is terribly romantic. I love it. I'm such a sap when it comes to things like this. And Sarah is right the one & only is stunning!!! You would love it.

                  Okay I found the link to the gallery:

                  I love this slideshow b/c it is just the two of them and I think it's so romantic. Plus I love the color of the groom's suit, it's so different, it's great. Also look how cute the last pic is with the "Thank You" cards held behind their backs. Adorable.

                    Tammy,

                    I am in a totally different boat than you because we had a huge guest list and for us our wedding was as much about our families and friends as it was about us. The day after the wedding we hung by the pool with our guests at the Cabo Surf but then we transferred to the Marquis and it was wonderful. We arrived to choc dipped strawberries, champagne, and a drawn bath full of rose petals. We did choose to see our fam/friends a few times over the next few days, but it was totally our choice to do so. I say if you want to have your guests there, just be sure to switch hotels and tell the hotel to hold all calls once you get there.

                    Otherwise, do something really romantic with the two (or four) of you. We went to the Esperanza resort for dinner one night and there was a group of about 12 that were there celebrating the wedding. I do not recommend the restaurant (review later) but think that would be a great, fun intimate way to celebrate your day - perhaps at the Palmilla or one of the other fine dining restaurants.

                    A lot of the resorts set up beachfront dining. I saw the setup at the Marquis the first night that we were there and it was terribly romantic. A table surrounded by tiki torches, and a fire pit and a musical duo playing.

                      I've heard really good things about One & Only & the resort is awesome. We really wanted to have our wedding there, but their rules for weekend weddings didn't work for a group of our size. But their rules for a 2-person non-weekend wedding are more doable. Sometimes I wish that we'd chosen that instead. :)

                      I'm attaching their rules along with their wedding dinner & cake information, just in case you're interested! I have a ton more information (like entertainment, photographers, etc, etc) but I didn't want to overload you with things you didn't want. Let me know if you do.
