Thanks for the good weather wishes! Planning is going! We hired extra photography through the hotel.  How is your wedding planning going? Who is your coordinator? I have Magda!

I started out with Guillermo, but I have been switched to Yesica. I have read a lot of reviews where people have had Magda, sounds like she is good! Planning is going okay, I hadn't thought about a lot of things at all, then I just attended my cousins wedding and realized there were all these things I had never considered. I was going to have a relative simple wedding, but now things just got more complicated lol.

How did you book additional photography through the hotel? I mean is it like an additional charge per hour or per certain number of photographs? I have been debating whether or not to hire somebody as my package includes I think 50 free photos and I have 2 really good cameras which I was going to give to my sister and brothers' girlfriend. I didn't know if the resort would take significantly more photos and just let me choose 50 prints, or if I would have the option to purchase more at that time. This may be a question for my coordinator, but since it takes a while for them to reply, if you know anything please let me know.

 

Also, what are you doing for your centerpieces? I asked if they could send me photographs of some options but they never did. I don't know if I just need to find a picture of what I want and send it to them. It also sounds like we have to go through an outside florist, but I would think the resort would handle this?

 

Also, if you need any help/advice etc. let me know! I'm excited to be in touch with another bride who will be there at the same time!!

Shalane,

 

For photography, we also get 1 hour (50 photos) plus a 30 min DVD included in our Ultimate Wedding package.  I have added on extra photography from Adventure Photos at Dreams Los Cabos.  We have Danielle.  We picked the +3 hour coverage for $799.00.  Our total photography will include:

-total of 4 hours of coverage including getting ready, ceremony, photo session and cocktail party

-50 edited photos + 60 edited photos (they emailed me to say that they usually take apprx. 500 images and then we get to pick the ones we like best.

- digital images + slide show (online) + album (photo book). The Photo book is a coffee table book with 40 pages & 65 images in it. We receive this in the mail 5-6 weeks after we make our favorite selections.

The contact info is:

Adventure Photos at Dreams Los Cabos, drelcphoto@cabo-adventures.com, www.cabo-adventures.com

 

I have no idea what we are doing for our centerpieces yet.  They do have a Costco in Cabo (about a 15 minute drive from the resort) and they have flowers there... just something I have considered.  I cannot afford too many flowers outside of what is included in our package so I am trying to come up with other neat ideas for centerpieces but nothing yet.  You?

 

How many people are you having to your wedding?  Ours will probably be about 35.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
