    Hi Ladies,
    This is my 1st posting. I'm in the beginning phases of planning a DW in Cabo. Engaged last summer in Italy and have been planning since Sept '06 but have yet to pick a location/date. Have switched from local (SF bay area) to Italy to Hawaii to, finally, Cabo!! (I'm sure most of you can relate Anyways, FI and I are leaving on Sunday for a scouting trip and to meet with the WP we may use--Amy Abbott of Fiestas Los Cabos, a.k.a. Earth, Sea, Sky Vacations--any feedback on Amy? She was referred by a Knottie bride whose wedding looked fabulous! Any advice anyone could provide w/b much appreciated, ie., what to look for while we're down there, ?'s to ask WP and hotel staff, etc. Stats: We're looking into late Oct/early Nov '07 timeframe with app. 50-60 guests. We're looking at resorts and private villas.

          First of all - wow, engagement in Italy?! Lucky you!

          And no, unfortunately I don't know who that is. I've actually never heard of Earth, Sea, Sky Vacations (did I get that right?). Do you have a link for them?

          P.S. Welcome to the forum! :)

            Welcome & congrats! I have heard of Amy Abbott of Earth,Sea,Sky...I can't really recall whether it was positive or negative.

            I think you'll do just great on your scouting trip - it sounds like you are pretty on top of it. Do you have a list of potential venues you are going to visit?

              how many people are you expecting?
              what resorts are you looking at?

                Hi there,

                I spoke with Amy about our wedding but ended up hiring Lovely Weddings (Rosy and Carla) because they were more affordable. They did a fabulous job.

                anyhow, have a great trip & good luck finding a location!

                    Welcome to the forum! I know that Janet (Janet1111) used Lisa and she had nothing but fantastic things to say about her. I think that you are in good hands with her. I'm sure Janet will pop into this thread and offer her experience.

                    Which resorts are you considering?

                      Is this thread posted twice or am I just so tired I can't see straight?! anyway...

                      I swear I just wrote this, but WELCOME!

                      I think you are in great hands with anyone from Fiestas Los Cabos. I worked with Lisa who was A++++++++

                      Other hotels you might want to look at are: Cabo Surf Hotel (duh I am biased but at least Christa and Tasha confirmed my love for this place!), Las Ventanas, and maybe the Hilton?

                      Good luck and make sure to come back and tell us all about it!
