    Thanks Ducker!

     

    Glad to hear your wedding went well.

     

    Can you tell me who did your #5 & #6?  Also, did their spa do you hair and makeup?  I am trying to get a brides feed back on them.

     

    I am only have 35 ppl total so I don't think I would need an additional planner :)

      Hi,

       

      Yeah with 35 people, you should be fine with Larisa.

       

      Yes, for #5 we used Ambar Productions through the hotel. They were not cheap, but set up everything for us and it looked so beautiful.

       

      For #6, I'm not sure who Maye Cortinas got the chairs and table coverings and vases from. But her prices beat the prices Larisa quoted us quite significantly. We brought the silk flowers and floating candles with us from the States. We only used Cabo Flowers for our bouquets, corsages, flower girls, etc. We spent a total of around $500 on real flowers.

       

      Larisa had a local lady come to do hair. I can't remember her name. She was a blonde Canadian lady who lived nearby. She did a very good job. I did my own make-up...I'm an amateur make-up artist, :-), so I ended up doing my own as well as my mom and sister.

       

      Also, I highly recommend that you ask Larisa to do the floating lanterns on the beach after the reception. That was amazing and definitely one of the highlights of the evening. All of my family and friends are still talking about it. Everything turned out so much better than I thought..it was such an amazing time.

       

      Good luck and please let me know if you have any more questions.

          Well we decided to check out other wedding planners due to larisas lack of communication and the a co-ordinator at another hotel has been very timely in her emails and great to work with thus far, the beach is swimmable and all around it seems like a better choice for us! Good luck with your wedding I am sure it will be absolutely amazing! 8 weeks and we will be in los cabos and 6 days later our wedding at Melia! :)

            I got married in the DR in June of 2011. I know how hard it is to try to look your best for your wedding day.I don't know how to post this without it saying or looking like a scam, lol. But I wish I had known about this before my wedding and it really does work. I'm a stay at home wife and this is what I do on the side. If you want to tighten, tone and lose inches for your big day, check out my Ultimate Body applicator wrap and some really other great products that promote healthy living! http://www.skinnyin45.com/

                How is everyone planning going I am thinking of having my wedding at Hola next June. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I don't have package information other then what is one their website. Do you know how much per person if you have more then 30 ppl? Is there a dinner included in the reception? Do they have a hook-up for music or do I have to have a DJ or bring my own speakers? What kind of color or flower options do they offer?

                Thank You

                Heidi

                      I am about to hire Maye Cortinas as my WC for a Hacienda location in SJ Del Cabo.

                      We have about 25 ppl and she is charging $1,150. I've read some negative posts about her from 2008-9 on this forum and skeptical.

                      I suppose I could add in the contract if I'm not happy with her services I can be refunded...anyone else have experience w her other than Ducker?
