I booked my date!

Recommended Posts

Oh believe me, I am not leaving this site! I will be on here constantly for the next year. :) It will be nice to go from being new and knowing nothing, to being a pro next year and helping all the new people!


We did not book the individual rooms yet, but at the Cabo Surf, the deposit ($6,000) guarantees all the rooms in the whole hotel for the days around the wedding date. We can release any rooms that aren't booked 60 days before the wedding for no penalty, and the deposit just gets applied to our reception costs. We're definitely booking the whole thing, though, we're going to have 80 - 100+ guests, and the hotel only has 22 rooms, so we'll have lots of spillover at other nearby hotels.


Next on my list is booking the photographer (I'm contacting the ones everyone's been recommending) and finalizing Maye as my planner. And finishing our wedding website and save the dates. And getting a travel agent and room blocks at other hotels. I guess there is actually a lot more to do still.... smile35.gif but it's so nice to have the date settled!!

Woo hoo!! congrats! You will love it, I promise. Let me know if I can help with anything too.


PS we stayed in room 19 and it was perfect for us. It's on the quieter side of the hotel and has the closest balcony to the ocean, so it seemed really private.

    • 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.
