    Hello Ladies.. (2 part question)
    1 - I have a question for all you October Cabo brides out there.. because I can't seem to find anyone with my same wedding date. I know there's a big fishing tournament in Cabo the weekend of my wedding, but since we're at a Villa I wasn't too worried about it. Is there anything else going on I should be worried about? Why does it seem people aren't getting married that weekend? or .. am I being paranoid?

    2 - Where are you all having your rehersal dinner? We were going to do Baja Cantina, but just to 'set up' a table for 15 (ie push together 4, 4tops) they require a 500$ deposit!! It's rediculous!! All I wanted to do is make a reservation for dinner for 15 people near Cabo.. I don't want a special menu, my guests will order off the menu.. but this isn't turning out to be as easy as I thought. Oh.. and my first choice.. Mi Casa.. is sold out that night for a special event. ARGH!!

      It sounds crazy, but I didn't pick the rehearsal dinner place until I got there.....I wanted to test it out first. So we checked out a few places and talked to a couple of managers....and voila....$750 for dinner, drinks, and desert for 30.....The Stoplight.....right next to El Squid Row and super casual!! But we had our tables right next to the sidewalk and the veiw of the Cabo nightlife was fantastic! The trick was to send out rehearsal invitations that invited people to meet us at the ceremony site and then said something like "dinner to follow"....Our WC just arrange taxis for us and away we went!

        The huge Cabo Wabo birthday bash is around October 9-13. I read to not have your wedding around then because there are tons of people in town trying to score tickets for the event.

          We picked our date and then found out about the Cabo Wabo thing. With that said our hotel is 5 minutes away from the hustle and bustle so I am not that worried. One of my co-workers has also stayed in Cabo that same week and said that it is only really crowded if you are trying to get into Cabo Wabo. Our WC also assured me that it will not be a problem as far as vendors for the wedding and that is all I really care about!

          Our rehersal dinner is at Edith's.

              Amy - Have you tried calling places and noty mentioning anything about it being a wedding. Just basically that you and a group of friends will be in town and you'd love to all have dinner there (meaning wherever). People may still want a deposit because it's so far in advance but maybe that could help?

                I actually did after I heard about the Baja Cantina thing..
                They told me (Baja Catina) that it doesn't matter the occasion.. they require a deposit if they have to push any tables together! And we were planning on ordering off the menu. I've found a new place.. La Fonda.. they're being great!!

                  I am getting married on Oct 24 but we are being cheap and having our dinner at Riu since it is all inclusive and all of our guest are staying there. I hope that the tournament doesnt make it too crazy --- well just have to wait and see. :)
