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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
