    Hi ladies! I'm new to this forum and was wondering if you could help me out. My fiance and I are considering having our wedding in Oaxaca City next fall but the problem is I've never been! He used to vacation there when he was younger and thinks it will be a perfect place for the kind of wedding we want- small, intimate, and relaxed. 

     

    What do you think? We're planning a trip there to investigate the situation before I can officially give it the OK, but do you have suggestions for locations for the reception, caterers, or the like that I should look into while I'm there? 

     

    Thanks for you help!

      I live here is Oaxaca and I very often meet Americans that have come down for a wedding.  It is beautiful place, full of charm.

      If the wedding is small perhaps working with a B&B would work for you.  Many of them have wonderful gardens.

      I would consider

      http://oaxacabedandbreakfast.org

      The ones I know and would suggest would be adobe, bugmavillas, casa linda and Ollin

       

      I know a lot of great chefs that are always looking for money.  I have had a Thai restaurant here and my chef recently graduated from culinary school.  so if you want some catering you can email me.  I can give you some names.  2oaxaca@gmail.com

       

      Oaxaca is simply unique and sunny and a wonderful place.  I can't think of a better place to get married.

       

      best of luck

          Ah this is wonderful! Thank you so much! I know it's an unorthodox choice since most people go for a beach wedding in Mexico, so thanks for helping me look!
