Site ... check! (Hardest part almost done)
Date ... nail one down soon... (this was the next hardest for me)
Budget... decide if you are going to pay for it, or if parents will help. Decide on a round number - write it down and all expenses as you go.
Next is the dress. A dress can take a while, so start looking!
Next are colours and all that good stuff...
I have a sheet I have been going by. (
(I can post it later, I have a half hour until I have to go to an all day meeting).
Let us know how else we can help!

Perhaps this will help you get a feel for what others have done budget-wise:

By adding all of these things up, you'll start to realize how much money you'll have for the wedding itself and for transportation and lodging. This could help narrow down dates for you.

So, do not stress, it can happen without a budget, but you might spend a lot more. For us, its easier cause everything at our resort is included, except for a few extra's that I want, and we don't pay till we get there. So, I have not had to put down deposits or anything like that. (I also had no job till a month ago, so that helped with the spending )

On the other hand, I think a site visit in SUCH an advantage. We were at Dreams Cancun, but before we were planning a wedding, so we never did an official site visit. Everytime you think of something you want to ask the WC, write it down and bring the list with you! You will forget some things if you don't.
-Take a look at their chair/table linens and maybe get a feel for what colors you'd like. Maybe you can even get a little swatch to take back with you so you can coordinate when it comes to invites, BM dresses, etc.
-Look into all the "hidden" fees, if Cabo is anything like Cancun, there are lots of them (especially if you have over 20 guests). For cocktail hour and dinner we are spending over $60 per person, and that doesn't include linens. All decorations cost extra, sound systems, dance floors, centerpieces, bouquets, boutenieres.... I am lucky and extremely fortunate in that my parents are able and willing to foot the bill, but otherwise, I'd say a budget is essential...otherwise it would be VERY easy to get out of control. Also when budgeting, make sure to overestimate the number of guests that will be attending. We were guessing 50, maybe 60, at the most. Now we have 100...that about doubles the budget. So better to overstimate that underestimate!
-Seems, like you are going to your site visit at about the same time of year you plan on having your wedding. I think that's very helpful too, because you can get a general idea of how the weather will be. That should really help when planning too.
Remember, we are here for you and will help you every step of the way! There are lots of Cabo brides that have been there, done that, ... that's the best advantage you can get!
