Carly, I'm not sure!! I guess I need to look into that! haha!

Welcome Maybride! Your big day is coming up soon!!

 

Here are some questions and answers from Erika from the other day...I thought some of you may be interested! Is the Baja California restaurant on the resort?

 

 

Hi Erika,

 

Just a few more questions that popped into my brain :)

 

1) When do you need to have the final number of guests?

 

Like one week before you arrive to Cabo

 

2) Is the ceremony in Spanish or English? I have heard that it may be in Spanish and I was wondering who translates it into English?

 

if you are having a legal ceremony this one is at Spanish and I make the transduction to English if you have a simbolic ceremony that one is on English

 

3) We arrive on September 21 and the wedding is on the 25th, on what day do you think will we be meeting with you to discuss details? We are trying to arrange a couple off-resort excursions (horseback riding, zip lining) and we would like to book them soon but we do not want it to interfere withour meeting with you :)

 

Thi9s can vbe the next they of your arrival at 9:00 am

 

4) Did the photographer respond if 7:30pm-8:30pm will be ok for our hour of photography?

 

I am still waitting for the response

 

5) Can wedding rehearsals be arranged the night before? How long does it take and what happens?

this rehersal at the beach took around 10 minutes and I explain were is the ceremony how to acomodate and if it is for dinner this can be at the Baja California restaurant and you can check with your guest what you need. For a rehersal in a speciality restaurant this one can only be up to 10 people and the services at the restaurantas is around 2 hours.

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to our questions. We are under 6 months away and getting very excited!!

 

Sincerely,

Lisa Garner

Hi Ladies! I would love some help from you guys! I am getting married May 21st 2009, and have not been contacted by Erika. I see here that some have been contacted months and months out. I am only 5 weeks away and have not heard a word. We are having an extremely small wedding, 10 guests. I assume that is why she has not contacted me, but starting to worry. It's not a legal ceremony, our ceremony is at 6pm and requested dinner at the steak house following. But that has not been confirmed. Anyway, any thoughts would be wonderful!!!

 

Thanks,

Lisa

Have you tried calling the resort? I started emailing her about 8 months prior and never heard back until I called. Once that first contact has been made everything will be ok, but if i were you...I would call as soon as possible! Good luck!

She never contacted us, I contacted her actually. And she has always been prompt about returning my emails...have you been emailing her? If you haven't yet then i would asap: weddings.loscabos01@riu.com And if she doesn't respond within a day or so then I would call her. Everything will fall into place though, I'm sure! Good luck!

Lisa, the Baja California is the buffet. Thats the restraunt that Erika is refering to.

 

Goosie52 -Lisa, I would email her. I never had to call her. She always responded to my emails. I think her one day off a week is Tuesday.

Thank you! I emailed Paola in Sales, and she contacted Erika. Apparently, Sales confirmed my package, but never sent it to Erika. But everything is still the same!! Beach at 6, Steakhouse at 745!!!

    • 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.
