Hello and Congrats!!

 

This site is wonderful when planning for a destination wedding because you can see pictures of other weddings at your venue, read several reviews on different vendors, and get lots of cool ideas and suggestions along the way. Have you began to look at different venue sites?  Cabo's most popular and main beach (and one of the only swimmable beaches) is Medano beach. If you are hoping for a really private beach ceremony, I would suggest looking into hotels that are not located right on the Medano strip. Are you and your fiance able to make a site visit? I know for me this was not only helpful, but necessary before deciding on a resort and photographer.  (But I am a HUGE planner.)

 

What have you done so far? And do you have a date and budget in mind? Even early on, those are two things you MUST know before making any decisions.

Mari has wonderful starting off points.

 

I think the key is

1. Budget.  Make a budget.  Know the budget.  Stick to the budget.  This will help narrow down resorts.

2.  Do you want to get married on the beach or in a gazebo.  Some resorts don't have one of the options, so that'll help

3.  Do you want an outdoor private reception?

4.  Do you want all-inclusive?

5.  Will kids be invited?

6.  Do you want a large resort with a ton of things to do, or a more botique resort for an intimate time?

 

When you start answering questions like that the list of resorts will get smaller and smaller until you're left with the perfect one for you and your fiance!

Something that helped us make our decision was the proximity of the resort to the downtown/marina.  We definitely knew we wanted to be close to the marina so if guests/we wanted to go out to dinner or go shopping for the day they would not be paying outrageous amounts in taxi fair.  We ended up choosing Riu Palace.  It is a really nice hotel and is also about a 15 minute beach walk or a 5 minute cab drive from the marina.  Other resorts may be a 30 or 45 minute drive to the marina.  Just something to think about.  Hope this helps :)

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.    
    • Hello!  We are getting married at El Dorado Royale in August 2019.  We are trying to decide between La Salon Royale and Los Tucanes for the reception. I vastly prefer Tucanes but I’m worried everyone will be hot and miserable since I’ve been told it doesn’t have AC. Does anyone have experience with either location? If Tucanes, is there a way to get fans or cool it down? If La Salon, I’d love tips on how to decorate inexpensively so that it doesn’t look so “ballroom”-y. Thank you very much!
