Planning Wedding At the Capella Pedregal

Recommended Posts

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind trying to find vendors and negotiate prices.

 

Here is what I have so far:

Resort-Booked at the Capella

Airline tickets purchased

Florist booked-Arete Floral Design (Ana is fabulous)

DJ- Pacific Sound booked and great to work with

Cake-Jennifer Hatton

Photographer- Enrique Morales-Booked and very easy to correspond with

Officiant-Ivonne at Capella is working on it

Getting Blood work scheduled for legal ceremony.

Purchased sand ceremony vases and some OOT bag items

 

I feel like I am forgetting so much!!

I still need to book a ceremony musician, chair rentals, decide on food and bev menu, favors....

 

WHAT AM I MISSING?!?!

Hi, I see you are a fellow Houstonian getting married in Cabo. Congrats and what a wonderful choice! I just got married there at the end of April. We visited Capella and had dinner at their cliffside restaurant, what an amazing place!! Especially at Sunset! Magnificent choice! Hope you have an amazing wedding - kinda hard not to when you do it in Cabo!!

Thank you so much and congratulations! Where did you get married? Our date is 7 months from today and I feel so overwhelmed with things to do! How was your planning process?

Congrats on the wedding.  Are you getting married this December 2010..?  If so then I think we may be getting married about two weeks before you guys..!  12/4/10 is our date..!  We are doing a site visit at the end of August to finalize vendors but it seems like you are far ahead of us.  Any advice on who you have been dealing with thus far...?  Thanks.

Hi, I am about to book flowers with Arete Floral Design, can you tell me how it went?

I'm going through the same things, so much to wrap up at the last minute.  My wed is in January in Todos Santos, everything has to be picked up there or shipped, so hard to plan!

 

Anyway, good luck and let me know about those flowers. Thanks!

Hello to all on here and congrats on your weddings.  I stumbled on this place from a website and I honestly would love to get married here.  It would mean even more to my fiance because she loves Mexico.  My first question is how much was it?  I want to do but need to plan this right.  Can anyone give me around what they paid and what it included?  Thanks in advance

Hi!  I noticed you said you did a lot of price negotiation while picking your vendors.  Our wedding coordinator at Capella is arranging most of the vendors for us (florist, DJ, live music, etc).  Were you able to negotiate with vendors recommended by the resort, or did you find your own vendors?  We are starting to put our deposits down on some of these services, so it would be great to know if there is wiggle room with some of the prices we were quoted.  Thanks in advance!

Hi, I think I'm deciding on Capella as site fir my destination wedding also! It is a beautiful place! I wanted to ask from those of you with experience. Did u feel the hotel complimentary wedding coordinator Cecilia was enough? Or did you hire an additional wedding coordinator from outside? Thanks so much! And would love to hear about ur experiences about getting married there! Shihfan

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
