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.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
