Hi there!  We are getting married in San Jose in Feb 2011.  Church wedding followed by a reception at the Melia Cabo Real.  The church in San Jose is called:  The Mission de San Jose del Cabo Anuiti and you can contact Padre Juvencio at padrejuve@hotmail.com .


It is a gorgeous church!  My Fiance and I went on a site visit to Cabo in May and met with the Padre.  We attended a bilingual mass on Sunday and it was so special and moving.  This church is a perfect place for a wedding. 


Just as an FYI, in addition to your church's Pre-Cana you will have to complete paperwork and obtain Bishop approval to marry in Mexico.  You can find that information here:  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/57866/misson-de-san-jose-del-cabo-marriage-requirements#post_1254789.


Good luck!  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks!  Stephanie

Thanks for the post stephanie!  How far is this church from Cabo San Lucas?  Did you get a chance to visit the Catholic church in Cabo?  I am wondering what the inside of the Cabo Church looks like to see which one I prefer.  The San Jose looks beautiful!  I guess I am just torn because I am having the reception In Cabo and want to make it easy for all of the guests.  If we chose the San Jose Church we will just provide transportation for our guest.

Hi!  The Mission is about 11 mintues from the Melia (the hotel we're having our recpetion at)--which is about 25 mintues or so from Cabo San Lucas...so, you're looking at a 30/35-ish minute ride...give or take.  But don't quote me! 


The Mission is in the town-sqaure of San Jose.  It's so cute!  You can take a look at my site visit pics.  The town square has the best places to take pictures!  Colorful buildings and a lot of charm.  There are pics in this post:  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/59869/melia-cabo-real-site-visit-amazing


The Mission is amazing.  But, I met a couple during out site visit that married at the Cabo church and they loved it.  I think it's smaller, but still very nice!


We are providing transportation for our guests.  I felt that it was appropriate--I didn't want my guest to have to hail a cab, potentially get lost OR BE LATE and have to pay for a ride to our wedding.  It's an added cost, but it will be greatly appreciated.  Go with the Mission!  It's amazing...unique and very, very authentic!  And the Padre is very nice!


Good luck--let me know if you need more info!  Adios!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
