    Hello! I am hoping for some good recommendations :)

     

    We have decided to get married in Cabo San Lucas in October 2013. I have been doing research and now I feeling overwhelmed! I have looked at many resorts and I think I have it narrowed down to 3, Rui Palace, Dreams, and the Pueblo Bonito Resorts.

    It will be just me and my fiance. We wanted something small, private, relaxing, and romantic. We are interested in a sunset beach ceremony. What would you ladies recommend from prior experience or research? I also heard if either of us have been divorced before we will need a copy of the divorce decree to be in Spanish? I think the actual hotel will be the most important because it will be just us there and the ceremony will small and quick!

     

    What would the recommendations be to start gathering information from the hotels on what they offer wedding wise? Do you find that you get good responses from them? Also looking for a good reliable photographer.... any help would be so greatly appreciated!!

      Hi deedrz,

      First of all congrats on your engagement and secondly congrats on deciding on Cabo. I am not getting married in Cabo but I am getting married in Riviera Maya. As far as Mexico marriage requirements go they do have a 4 day in country residency policy AND a required blood test. The FI and I were NOT too keen on having our blood drawn in a foreign country. Instead we have opted to get our marriage lic state side and take care of all the legalities here than deal with international legalities. So while we may have a marriage lic dated whatever date our real wedding and anniv date will be celebrate May 31, 2013. As far as the divorce decree goes that's another reason we're getting "married" legally here and doing a symbolic in Mexico. My FI was married years ago and if you are wanting a Catholic ceremony you seriously need written letters of rec from your Archbishop and what not. Too much for me! We're both Catholic by name but not by choice and we weren't going to jump through their hoops to prove we're good enough or competent enough to get married. But that's neither here nor there. As far as places to get married we're getting married at Now Sapphire which it part of the Dreams/AMResorts properties. If it's just you and your FI and no kiddos you may also want to consider a Secrets Resort. It's an adults only resort. No screaming children and families clogging up the beaches and pools. Just something to consider. We went with Now instead of the Secrets because they offered more guests/people included in their packages (ie 25 vs 20) but since it's just you two I say go for it. Get something super nice and spoil yourselves. BTW the AMResorts offer a Complimentary wedding package if you book a certain category of room for a min of 7 nights or something like that. Anyways, hope this was a bit helpful and happy planning!

      Best,

      Melissa
