excited about cabos...

Recommended Posts

hello,

 

my name is jessica and my fiance and i are planning to get married on february 2, 2007 at casa del mar in los cabos. so happy to see that natasha recently got married there! it's a little unnerving booking everything online. i have spoken to claudia and she does seem very helpful and responsive.

 

feb is considered high season so the blocked room rates are higher, i hear comments about condos and villas, but has anyone organized group travel packages from sources like expedia or orbitz that include airfare and hotel for their wedding party and guests?

 

nice to meet you fellow destination wedding brides, looking forward to exchanging thoughts...

Hey,

Welcome!

I tried to discourage our guests from booking through expedia or orbitz for our wedding. Hotels give these bookings a lower priority, so for high season, if the hotel is overbooked, who do you think they'll bump?

Hopefully Tammy will read this soon... she's a travel agent that specializes in dest. weddings.... (Tammy, not TammyM that replied above.) She can probably help you and your guests out.

Let us know if you need anything else!

Welcome Jes!

 

Personally, I would avoid trying to arrange travel packages for your whole group thru Expedia or Orbitz. The reason I say this is that generally any travel arrangements made through these sites are very restrictive - so if people need to alter their plans after travel has been booked, they will not have much luck doing so without stiff penalties. My 2 cents :)

Welcome!

 

I'd recommend looking into renting condos at Casa del Mar for some of your guests. They are often cheaper than the hotel rooms, and right there on the same grounds. I'll try to find some links for you.

 

Our fellow bride Ylan got married there last weekend; I'm sure she'll be back to post a review soon -- and I know she ended up renting condos and booking hotel rooms both

hey there,

 

it is def. easier to do a room block than to try to scramble to get rooms via expedia/orbitz...that way you have the security in knowing the x amount of rooms will be set aside for your guests. cabo is a popular destination so it is not uncommon for hotels to book out months in advance. we have had brides find out their hotel was booked and have to scramble to find rooms for their guests at the last minute...def. not what you want to do the month before your wedding.

 

let me know if you need any help.
