Cabo site visit, Nov 14-16th

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I think I'm going to do a site visit next month. Cain's Ma has a good chance on getting free airfare tickets (she's a corporate TA and gets two tickets a year and never used hers this year) She was also making some calls yesterday and got a killer rate on the Sheraton for two nights, (cheaper then staying at a resort in downtown) The only catch, she has to travel with me,, UGH and if anyone has heard all my stories about the trouble with her lately you can see why it's a bit stressful. BUT I'm going to have to bite me tongue and deal with it because I think it would really help me in finalizing our vendors.

 

SO, I'm now in a panic mode of trying to list out all the vendors I want to talk to in the very short amount of time we will be there.

 

Flower cart & other flower vendors (pricing on flowers and canopy rental)

Wedding coordinator (I may just smack her around a little in hopes she starts working for me) :-)

Melia San Lucas (check out site and secure our dinner reservations and wedding night suite)

Villa Del Palmar (check out hotel and grounds)

Pedregal Beach (view with WC on where the ceremony will be held)

 

 

I'm going to be checking the previous site visit thread in hopes to get a good list of questions for each of my vendors, but if anyone can think of some things for me I would appreciate it.

 

BTW do you think I should set up a meeting with Juan our photographer? We talked on the phone and over email, and he's great so I don't know if I need to meet him or should we just meet up to actually meet face to face before the wedding?

Even if you have to go with your not-so-favorite person in the world, I think you will be glad you made the trip. For me, the most valuable part was just getting familiar with the area (airport, roads, landscape) so that I can give my guests good advice about things.

 

Because Juan is so good, I'm not sure you need to meet with him. When your wedding gets closer you will want to give him a list of any pictures you want (combinations of people, etc), but if I were you I'd spend that extra hour laying by the pool sipping a margarita :)

 

PS Ill be in Cabo honeymooning away those days!!!!!!!!

Good tip on the stylist/spa Janet. I'll have to check that part out, it would relieve a TON of stress if I knew I liked what they did. Plus Cain's Ma speaks spanish so there will be no language barrier. I was hoping I would catch a wedding while I'm there but I know it was a stretch.. :-) WHy don't you postpone your wedding for a couple of days.. lol.. J/K

Yeah Tammy! You will feel so much better after you go!

I agree with what Janet said about Juan. He does such a great job is (at least for me so far) has been extremely reliable and timely. Is Cain going with you? You could always get some awesome engagement pics like someone else I know...lol

In addition to what the other girls have suggested, I would recommend checking out the entertainment vendors you will plan to use (if any). I know some girls are chartering sunset cruises and things like that- you could try it out and see if it's something you want to do.

I'm so excited for you, although it's just pretty much par for the course for you to have to bring the FMIL. Again- you are the world's most patient person!

I think we'll check out the resort spa and maybe a couple activites if we have the time. Cain's not coming with.. :-((( We need someone at home taking care of the 4 dogs.. Plus his Ma can only get two tickets and Cain said he doesn't want to meet with all the vendors in fear that he might make a bad decision.. lol.. Smart man.. lol..

hehe, yes he is a smart man- you know if you give them too much freedom in the decision making process you can create a monster! Jeff has backed off now and says I can just do whatever I want- thank GOD!!

Congratulations, hey if you can deal with her at your house you can deal with her sun bathing by the pool right? I'm so excited for you, your going to come back so happy and relieved that you got to see things with you own two eyes.

    • 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.
