2013 Cabo Bride - Newbie - Need help planning very tiny wedding (10 people!)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

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!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned.
