Using the IS, we are going to bring in our snacks, we might hire a bartender for the night just to serve (depends on how many people we get), and this way, we can hang out with our guests that arrive on Thursday as long as we want. And we can get rowdy and get in the pool later! Also, since we have to rent the villa for the night, we will have it from 3pm or so (check-in) until noon that next day.

We're not really changing rooms, b/c it'll be too complicated to unpack, etc, so we're just adding it our Master Account block. We'll probably end up having some friends that stay in it, but I don't want to have to worry about checking out, checking in, etc.
Oh, that makes sense!!! Sounds like a better plan to have the welcome party there!

let me butt in to answer. wink.gif

We did eat breakfast, and/or lunch at the hotel. We went to Costco and stocked up on food & snacks but did not end up eating much. We provided all of the dinners off-site.

For the most part, people were very busy since most of our guests arrived on Thursday afternoon and departed Sunday. Friday about 16 of the guys went off to play golf. And Saturday was the wedding and I didn't really leave my room/the suite where we got ready until we did pictures.


I think that some of our guests went elsewhere to eat, but to be honest the food at the hotel was really good, and it was so convenient!

ditto most of what Tasha said. Honestly, I was so busy and running around chatting with people I don't think I ate much food all weekend, but I know my guests loved the hotel's breakfast! We had a welcome dinner off site the night before the wedding, and lots of people just went to the grocery to get snacks. It was a mixed bag, really.

Thanks Janet and Tasha....great info!! However, sucks for me but Armando said that my date isn't available, that someone is getting married ther on Sunday May 25, 2008 and I want Saturday May 24, 2008. He said they rented out all the rooms for their party for the weekend but that if I want he can check w/ them to see if they mind a wedding there the night before theirs.

 

I don't think that is righthuh.gif The point of them renting the whole place out was probably so that it would be just them, not some other group having a wedding there!

 

So I guess I am out of luck! sad.gif I appreciate all the info though!!! You guys are wonderful! :)

Oh, sorry, one more question...were they good about letting you change up the menu's like add or remove things and alter the price? Thanks!
HI Michelle!
I am getting married at Cabo surf on May 10th 08. I tried to do the 24th there and it was taken! sad.gif I was super bummed. But so far I am really happy with my choice. I think it will be great and Armando has been helpful. We are going to go to do a site visit in August so I will let you know how it goes. Thats when we are picking the menus for dinner and reception.

Thanks!!! I would love to hear how things go but I can't have it there now because the 24th is taken and I have some date conflicts with some of the family (both sides) so we can't really be too flexible with our date! sad.gif

I would say that if you are willing to have some flexibility it will be worth it in the end. We ended up choosing our date solely based upon the availability of the cabo surf. In the end, it all worked out. We booked our wedding 9 months out and we had 135 guests - way more than the 70 that we had originally planned on! I guess that my point is that your friends and family will make it. Rather than driving yourself batty trying to coordinate schedules, just pick a date and give everyone ample time to make their travel arrangements. We had all sorts of barriers for our guests - teachers, accountants during tax season, guests from Hong Kong and Singapore - you name it. But they all made the trip in the end.


the most important thing is that you get what you want out of our location. I really do believe that the location makes the party and I can say with great confidence that our party was a huge success thanks to this hotel (and the Twins and fireworks, and a TON of booze!!!)

Thank you!!! I did ask Armando what dates around there they had available and when the other group was checking in and checking out...so we will see! :)

hi km that is great that you chose the fa. we are thinking we are going to do that in feb next year. thanks for the pic. we were thinking the imperial suite for a rehersal dinner and then the whale terrace for the ceremony cocktails and dinner. is there a ballroom that you are going to have a band or dj in for dancing after dinner? i am trying to understand the set up there. it is great to hear that you love the rooms, food, and service when you went there. i have heard the prices are pretty steep, but probably comparable to here in chicago..nonetheless, pricy. thanks for any info you have. i would love to hear more and see more pics if you have them.
