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

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
