Cabo Wedding HELP please!!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I went to the Sheraton Hacienda in December with my Mother who flew over from Australia to help me, I loved the resort and Anne was great, I was already to book and then my Fiance was suddenly made redundant! I had my menu, photographer, florist and d.j all chosen! We then decided to push the wedding back from Nov this year to March of 2011 because we are in the middle of moving from New York to Melbourne, Australia. I told the Sheraton that i now want to have the wedding in March next year and they have increased the room rates by nearly $100 a night! I find this so frustrating as it is only 4 months later and now means we probably can't have our wedding at the Sheraton which i was really looking forward to as it is a beautiful property!! I am now looking for a new Hotel and am hoping someone can offer me some advice as I am not going to be able to do a site visit.

 

I met with the photographer Gabriel Garcia and thought he was great, he took a few photos for me and they turned out great, I look forward to working with him.

 

I also met with the florist Claudia from Floreria Rayen, she is fantastic she came with her husband as she does not speak perfect english but they are both great.

Are you flexible as far as the date? I remember reading somewhere that rates in March can be higher because of Spring Break. Maybe you can ask them if it will be any less for a different month, like February or April.

I got married in February at Dreams and the resort is beautiful and everyone there was fantastic. If you are considering changing the venue, look into Dreams. Good luck!

I was married in April at Dreams, and I found the rates to be reasonable. Like others have already said, March coincides with March Break for elementary schools so rates are usually higher, late Feburary coincides with Spring Break for Universities so rates are also higher then. April is a good choice and the weather is amazing at that time.

Hi Ana,

I just read your review on Dreams and it all sounds fantastic! Your photos are amazing, I am starting to get excited about Dreams and spoke with David from Dreams today. I am going to look into having it in April.
Thanks for your advice.

Hi,

I got married at Villa del Arco last December 1st. I am sure if you make a deal now they can give you excellent rates. And also keep all your vendors. My WC was Gretel, she did a great Job.

We are getting married at the Villa La Estancia which is next door to Villa del Arco, and I couldn't say enough great things about their wc's and how wonderful and easy to work with they all seem to be. It's really been an effortless process!

 

I am having a rough time picking a photographer, but think I'm down to Gilda or Manuel Bourgoin. I love Gilda's photos, personality and rates; Manuel just seems to have a more artistic edge that draws me back to his site. Going to be a coin toss!

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
