    Hi Everyone,

    After 10 years together, we got married in New York last month and are planning a wedding in Cabo for August. This weekend we're going to Cabo for a little celebration and to pick a venue for our special day. Dreams does not perform same-sex weddings, but so far we're considering Riu Palace & Pueblo Bonita Pacifico. Any other ideas for places to scout out?

        Hey there! Congratulations!


        I love the Barcelo and Playa Grande in Cabo San Lucas. Playa del Arco is also nice, though I don't know what their all-inclusive or wedding packages are like. It might be mostly owners...

        I didn't even realize there were resorts not doing same-sex weddings (come on Mexico, you used to be cool) so I don't know for sure about if those three will. Sure hope so.

        Holla at me if you have photography questions!

        Gooooooood luck! :)

              Sun, sand, beaches, and beautiful people.  :)  Have fun on your recon trip.  Hopefully you can find a resort that fits your needs.  :)

                Congratulations!  Mine is a same-sex wedding, as well.  Dreams resort was the first place I really fell in love with, so I was crushed when they said they wouldn't perform a same-sex ceremony.  I found an amazing place in Playa del Carmen that I'm even happier with, so while I don't have any suggestions for you in Cabo, I offer my support & confidence that you'll find an amazing venue!  I had to research from afar, so it took me a while, but you have the wonderful benefit of being there in person, so I bet it will be a breeze.  Can't wait to hear what you decide!

                    I didn't even know that same sex weddings were an issue in Mexico.  Sometimes people are so backwards.


                    Congrats, and welcome to the forums.
