Thanks ladies!  I don't know what I would have done without this site, so I'm just hoping I can help someone as well.  Plus, with the wedding over, I have nothing else to do except working on this --> smile02.gif  LOL

Have you guys been reading the recent reviews on Trip Advisor? For some reason I find it hilarious haha. The resort manager has a rebuttal to everything, even kind of nasty at times! Not professional .... worries me that if I have a bad experience, they won't take any responsibility!

 

But for the most part, I know that the bad reviews are just bitter people ranting. We experienced a few minor issues when we stayed there in 2010 and they were just that, MINOR! We didn't let them ruin our vacation.

 

If anyone wants to read my review that I wrote after we got back, it's here:

Question for you ladies, are you having a welcome dinner/ rehearsal dinner at the resort?  I want to have dinner with all of our guests the night before the wedding, and since we have over 20 people, the only restaurant that we can choose is Poseiden (sp?), the seafood restaurant.  My wedding planner originally told me that I need to book the dinner 2 weeks ahead of time, but now she is saying to wait until I get to the resort.  The thought of not having a reservation ahead of time makes me nervous.  Especially since I am sure that the other 9-10-11 weddings will be planning the same sort of dinner, and they will most likely have over 20 guests.  Does anyone have more information on this?  Can I make the reservation before we get there? 

 

Thanks!

Hey hindsmor,

 

I don't have specific info on your hotel in regards to your question but I wanted to touch on the idea/concept of a welcome dinner. I did one for my guests and I have to tell you it was one of the most fun things that we did. Everyone came in on different days and it was our first chance to really get everyone together in a room, thank them for flying thousands of miles and for taking time out of their lives to be with us on such a special week. I think it meant a lot to people. This is where we also presented our wedding party with personalized shirts that said "Best Man/MOH/Bridesmaid/Groomsmen" with sayings on the back as well as their names. It got everyone really excited for everything and I was really happy that we did it. It also gave us a chance to introduce everyone in the wedding party and their relation to us. Since the big day is all about the two of you (as it should be), this gives you an opportunity to shout out your wedding party and just give an overall "Thank you so much for coming, it means the world to us" type of gratitude to all of your guests. Hope that helps a little!

I know.  I was originally told I could book ahead of time, but then was told I had to wait until I get to the resort.  I'm planning on having a rehearsal dinner but I've told the family we might just be stuck at the buffet.

Wedding dec 3 Have almost 30 people booked and have not sent out invitations yet. (sending 150 out tomorrow) Does resort lower resort prices with larger group? Not sure what to do for reception..... Was thinking extended cocktail hour..... Our friends and family are easy going. Travel agent quoted us 125 for room with 2 guest and is booking all separate flights for guest with no discount.... Normal? We are using liberty travel.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
