I just got engaged, and am planning my destination wedding to Cabo. I have never been to Cabo(But fiance has been 5+ times) and wont' be having a big elaborate wedding. It will only be immediate family/friends (8-12 people total including groom and bride!).
I just booked our lodgings (We are renting the penthouse apartment at Terrasol - that used to be owned by Oscar de la hoya - it is absolutely breathtaking 3 bed 3 bath penthouse apartment with oceanfront view to the Pacific ocean.
I am a DIY simple bride, in my 40's, and this isn't my first wedding (3rd both both groom and I). They say 3rd time's the charm! We want an intimate symbolic wedding ceremony and a fun dinner/reception (with plans to have our civil ceremony when we return from cabo). I am thinking about having the ceremony on the deck at our penthouse, and then dinner/reception at one of the local oceanview restaurants. Although I may be persuaded to a beach ceremony near the restaurant or in combination with the restaurant (Mona lisa looks amazing! I have emailed them but haven't heard back yet.
I need just the basics (Officiant, restaurant recommendations, transportation to and from restaurant, hair/makeup for bride and bride's sister, flowers, acoustic guitar trio and that is it.
Any suggestions? I could really use the guidance. I don't think I need a coordinator for such a simple small event, but I have reached otu to Karla, and another local coordinator requesting help and proposal - but also haven't heard back from them... how come people are so slow to respond? probably because they can see I am not a big budget bride....
Therefore I am relying on all of you - if you have any tips, tricks, suggestions that can help me I would really appreciate it!
