    Hello all,


    I am looking to have my wedding at Cabo San Lucas summer 2012. I decided to do a destination wedding in hopes of a small and intimate event. I also thought that destination weddings plan themselves, but I was horribly wrong. I'm so confused and not sure where to begin. I found beautiful resorts and contacted them for pricing. Some resorts seem great, but have high guest pass fees. Other resorts were very vague about their services. So I'm hoping some of you wouldn't mind sharing your process. I also don't know whether to go with a standard package all inclusive resorts offer or have outside vendors come in as well. Any and all advice is desperately needed and will be more than appreciated. Reading other blogs, I realized how wonderful and helpful you ladies are, so thank you in advance fro all your help.


    Some facts about my wedding;


    - I decided on a $25,000-30,000 budget, but I'm not sure if that is an appropriate budget.

    - I'm guesstimating that about 50 people will be attending.

    - I'm hoping to have the wedding sometime in July.

    - Is a villa wedding possible on my budget or should I just stick to all inclusive resorts.



    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You,

          After tons of back and forth, I decided to go with the Hilton resort. Now to figure out my vendors...Does anyone have any suggestions for a flower vendor, videographer and photographer?
