    Hello beautiful ladies!

    My fiance and I finally set a date for our wedding on June 21, 2010 @ The Hilton in Los Cabos. I would love to find out what other lucky ladies have chosen The Hilton for their wedding so we can share ideas.

    So far I only have set the date and have decided on colors: Navy accented with turquoise and lime green.

    I can't wait to hear from everyone!

    :) Nicole

          Congrats! I am getting married at the Hilton this May and I'm very excited - can't believe it's less than 4 months away.

            Hi Nicole

            The Hilton is a great resort to get married, it's very private and the service is top quality.
            The restaurants, the sites and the staff are so attentive, you are in for a great time.

                Hi - I'm a newbie! We've narrowed our ceremony down to either Hilton los Cabos or Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach!! I think the Hilton is my top choice! We haven't yet set a date but most likely early Oct or Nov of this year! I'm so excited to have found this site/thread so I can get the real scoop on these hotels :-) I've sent emails to the coordinator at Hilton I belive her name is Carolina Solis. So far she seems to be very slow at returing my emails. I've asked her to call me and have yet to speak with her. So, that makes me a bit worried! :-(

                  Hi Leobunny!

                  Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I am excited you might choose the Hilton as your venue, it is SO beautiful! My fiance and I went to Cabo this past November (wonderful weather btw) and looked at about 6 different resorts and as soon as we walked on the premises of the Hilton we knew it was the one for us.

                  Carolina Solis is the name of the coordinator/manager of weddings at the resort and I did deal with her to set my date and met with her in person when we visited the Hilton this November. She was great! I never had a problem getting a response from her, she was always very prompt with her emails (about a day or two) - she was always the quickest to respond to me out of all of the resorts. Maybe is is super busy right now? Hang in there, I promise it will be worth it!

                  Good luck with planning and let me know if you need any help. I have menus but they are 2010 pricing...if you would like to see them though just PM me and I can send them to you.

                  Cheers,
                  Nicole

                  PS - I live in San Diego too! :)

                    Carolina is usually pretty good about getting back to you, so I would hang in there. Once you've booked a date, you're done with Carolina and you deal with the WC Jaira. She is not always immediately resposnsive but it's what I expected for the most part based upon this forum. I think she prioritizes and if you're wedding is 8 months away, she doesn't view things as an immediate priority to respond, but she does eventually respond. Everyone is extremely nice. Everything I read on this forum said that the Hilton may not always be the most responsive but on the day of, it's all worth it - I'll let you know in 3 months if that's true - I think it will be.

                    My approach (and this would have been with any place I booked) was to do my own research on vendors (mostly thanks to this site) and negotiate and book things directly with them. I did ask Jaira for recommendations, but it took awhile for her to get back to me and by then I had already decided on photographer, my main concern. Since I felt the Hilton (like any other hotel) would be biased towards their own vendors and pricing, I wanted to do my own research and talk directly to people - this approach is not for everyone! I did use Hilton vendors for cake and flowers and musicians, though they are outside vendors that are also had good reputations on this forum and I never use the EC as an intermediary to explain my wants - I spoke directly to bakery and florist to plan out what I wanted.

                    The Hilton was our No. 1 choice and we can't wait!

                    Good luck!

                      Hello Nicole!!

                      That makes me feel a little better about not getting a response to my last 2 emails I sent her last week. She did send me the menues and pics of the ceremony locations etc and a rough quote in her initial (first & only) email. It was quite pricey! But she added all kind of things in it, that we most likely will not need. I was thinking to save $$ maybe we could just have dinner at one of their restaurants?? What do you think is that a bad idea? Will it be too noisy or no privacy? It'll be a small group about 20ppl. Have you booked any of your other vendors yet? I've been contacting photogs and have gotten a few quotes back but still weighing my options. You still have some time left for your planning so that's good :-) I'm ALMOST contemplating on moving it to Jan of 2010 just so we'll have more time and also more $$ saved (we're paying for it all ourselves).
                      Good luck to you also with your planning!! What part of SD are you from??
