    Hi! Thanks for your message! Congratulations on your wedding!!! I contacted Marci and she seems great, with awesome prices! Who did you end up using for photography? So many of the photographers seem awesome, but their prices are quite high! I'm definitely a bride on a budget!
    Also, I don't need elaborate decorations, but I would, of course, like a bouquet for myself and my girls, and boutineers. Do you have anyone you could recommend?
    Thanks!

      Hi Tammy! We haven't really thought about the legal side of things...but I guess we will probably end up getting married first here. Do you think that will ruin the special day at all? Due to a fairly tight budget, we won't be inviting that many people. Just immediate family and close friends...probably around 20 people. But, we plan on have the whole gang for a party when we get back-around 150 people. I looked at Pedregal Beach, and it looked pretty online, but then again, doesn't everything? Were you disappointed when you saw it? My fiance's family owns a timeshare at Pueblo Bonito, so it just made since to plan it there. I've never been though. What will your wedding be like?
      BTW-You're a really cute couple! I'll get a pic of John and I up here soon...

        Pedregal Beach is really pretty, but really hard to get to as most places in cabo most things are poorly marked and it takes a couple of days just to figure out where things are. I know many brides on here who get married in the states before their cabo wedding and they said it doesn't take away from their Cabo wedding at all. We choose to have a real legal wedding in Cabo because in our mind we always wanted it to be legal in Cabo.

        Our friend had a timeshare as well that we purchased from him for Villa Del Palmar so were staying there, but for our wedding night were staying at the Sheraton and having our wedding ceremony on their beach and dinner there. I kind of wanted our ceremony and dinner to be at a different location then where everyone was staying so that it's new and exciting for everyone. (I know I'm a big dork..lol)

        Are you planning on hiring a wedding coordinator? If your having a non-legal wedding it would be pretty easy (with the help of this board) to plan it on your own, that way you can save money there. If I weren't doing a legal wedding I wouldn't have hired a WC.

        Please feel free to ask questions, you'll learn a great deal from the ladies on this forum.

          Ho Heather welcome to the best wedding forum EVER!!! so glad you joined the Cabo team, there's tons of us here...good luck with all the planning. As for photographers I am using Juan Carlostapia but since yo are on a budget he might be a little too much for you, not too sure as what you want to spend on a photographer....if you are looking to save some cash trying looking into the resorts photographer he might be a lot cheaper

            Hi Heather! Welcome to the forum- you will find all the info you need and more:) I also am using Juan Carlos Tapia as my photographer, check out his website at Juan Carlos Tapia Photography if you haven't already. I'm not sure what your budget is, but I am also a bride on a budget and decided that pictures were something I was willing to splurge on. After all, when the wedding is over, the pictures are all you have left to remember the day!
            Here are my engagement pics Juan took while we were in Cabo on our site visit: http://www.jeffreyan...fly.com/action/

            Here are two other weddings Juan has done for brides on this forum:
            http://share.shutter....8ActWbdq0bt3Ew
            http://www.reasbecks...fly.com/action/

            There are other great photographers in the Cabo area- but I just love Juan's work and he is sooo fun to work with!
