    My fiance proposed to me in Cabo San Lucas and now we are thinking about gettting married there. We fell in love with Cabo when we went for one day (on a cruise ship). I have been doing lots of searching for places to have a ceremony and reception. I really like what the Riu has to offer and with the economy the way it is, we do not want to spend 10k for our wedding. Any advise?

          Dear sjfreimark,

          Welcome to the forum! I know for a fact that RIU has many great things when it comes to weddings :) There's many opinions in here about the RIU. I have been in hundreds of weddings there myself :) Have fun planning your wedding. Congratulations!

              Welcome! Cabo is a great location - lots of brides choose Cabo for the great weather and beautiful resorts. Most brides in Cabo choose either the Riu or Dreams if they are doing all inclusives - you'll find tons of info on both here! Congrats on your engagement!

              Welcome to the forum!
              There is a great budget thread (just type it in on the search bar at the top) and go through that looking at other Cabo weddings. That should help you feel at ease about your budget.
              Good luck :)

                  Thank you all for the warming welcome!! I have heard that Dreams and Riu are pretty popular. I really enjoy Riu's location and if guests want to head into Cabo for a day it's a little cheaper to catch a taxi at the Riu. Thanks again for everything and if your have any more comments, please keep them coming
