    Thanks for the advice everyone, I really appreciate it. I didn't know how stressful this wedding planning can be :-)

     

    Good luck and Congrats to everyone!

    Morning!


    I actually photographed a Cabo wedding in April for a couple from Australia.  They had guests flying from all over the world, including Australia, Bahamas, and NY (ironically).  The wedding was a Dreams Los Cabos and everyone LOVED it.  They actually all flew to LAX and met there.  They partied there for two days and then all flew to Cabo together.  From what I heard, it really added to the experience for everyone.

      I have looked into having the wedding at the Dreams resort as well (its incredible), however my guests would have to pay a greater price

      difference as oppose to the Riu resorts. So I had to eliminate that idea. However, having everyone met in LAX before hand is a terrific idea, I will look into that. Thanks you :-)

      I hear the RIU is fantastic.  Especially because it's closer to town.  It really stunk that Dreams wasn't near and it cost a lot to go to and from town.  That was the only stinky thing about Dreams.

        I will look into your vendors that you mentioned, especially the photographer. I want to have amazing pictures during that time.

        Thanks again for helping me out. Hope you feel better.



        Thanks! I am finally feeling much better. Yes, it probably makes a world of a difference to have a travel agent work with you, so that's great!!   And let me know if you have any other questions/concerns!

        Wedding planning is indeed stressful, especially when you're doing a DW since you do not live there. BUT it will all be worth it in the end, so hang in there! And vent when you need to! :)

        I think that's a great idea for your guests from Australia. Not sure about your guests from the East Coast though as it might be more costly. I thought about that as well since my family is from Southern California but it would have been more expensive for those of us flying in from the East Coast. So we just looked for flights directly there.
