Cabo Weddings...any bride need recos or pics?

Recommended Posts

So, I'm putting myself out there to help all future bride planning their wedding in Cabo. I know I wished to have an unbiased, detailed bride-to-be or wedding planner in Cabo as I planned our wedding to either do a site check, meet with vendors or simply take pics of a venue. I'm getting married at the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar next month and will be in Cabo for 10 days. If anyone needs a reco or to be 'their eyes' for something related to your wedding, please let me know and I'll do my best to take pics and send you info. I'm also keeping notes on my experience with all vendors I contacted or am working with and plan to share this after the wedding as well. Happy planning ladies! Cheers to us

I'd love to hear your insights and thoughts. I am going to Cabo to look at venues next month and the Sheraton is one of the venues we are looking at. Why did you choose it? Are you working with a planner? Thank you

Hi Marina, I chose the Sheraton because I love the mexican hacienda look and feel. They were also flexible in me choosing my own vendors without a fee and they have a cute little chapel in their hotel which can have Catholic ceremonies (these are usually done at a church, priests won't marry elsewhere). Also, their in-house event planner (Jose) is sooo helpful and good at recommending vendors that I didn't need to hire an event planner. He will be my day-of event contact for a small charge and will deal with managing the vendors. They also offer paying the vendors directly so you as a bride don't have to pay a random vendor that you don't even know. We only have to pay the Sheraton which we're comfortable doing. I'll definitely share my feedback and lessons learned with you once I'm back in mid Nov.

I'm getting married in Cabo in June 2014. I would love to hear your thoughts on your vendors you used so far. Are they responsive? So far dealing with hotel has been a drag, so I booked a flight to go and meet w/vendors so I can get the ball rolling.... Please advise....

Hi @clynn. Majority of Cabo vendors are horrible at responding in a timely manner or they don't respond by the day they say they will. I can't believe how much business they get that they don't feel the need to respond or provide much detail to anything. Honestly, it's been like pulling teeth for everything. It's clear they get irritated at the multie questions and emails but they should put themselves in our shoes...most of us don't live in Cabo and are trusting a total stranger not only with our money (most require 50% deposit) but with one of thee most important days of all our lives. This is why I want to help future brides as much as possible. I'll share as much as I can!! Good luck and congrats on your upcoming wedding!!

Thanks! I'm making some progress now, hotel is being more responsive. Sometimes I find it easier to just pick up the phone and call.

I think I found a DJ & photographer, but am still looking for florist, minister, & violinist or trio.

I got my dress and location booked, so I got 2 big ones outta the way ;) I'm sure it'll all come together slowly but surely.

Good luck with your wedding next month, I look fwd to hearing your reviews after and if you have any vendors that have been a pleasure to work with thus far please let me know!! THanks!

Hi,  My daughter wants to get married in Cabo.  We have been vacationing at Hacienda Del Mar for years so that is our thoughts for the wedding.  The Cabo Del Sol golf club there would be perfect but maybe too pricey?

There would be about 50 guests.  Any cost and referral information would be appreciated.  Just got engaged so next year would be the time.   Thanks, Susan

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
