    1. Elaine & Rich
    2. 08.08.08
    3. Cabo - possibly Riu or Dreams

    With the target being 08.08.08 (only approximately 8 months from now), we would appreciate any ideas or suggested links to threads that anyone has to share. We've never even helped planned anyone else's wedding so basically we have zero experience regarding this.

    More specifically, topics regarding the following:
    1) travel agents
    2) planning tips for family/friends coming from different locations
    3) obstacles to avoid
    4) oversights
    5) paperwork needed

        Welcome to th forum!! Well first of all, there are LOTS and LOTS of us Cabo brides on this forum, especially Dreams!

        But specifically:

        1) travel agents The host of this forum is a TA. I know she's busy, so I'm not sure if she's accepting new clients, but I'm sure she'd be able to point you in the right direction if not.
        2) planning tips for family/friends coming from different locationsNot sure what kind of tips you're looking for here. This is where a TA comes in handy (rather than organizing it yourself). You'll find a popular suggestion of sending out Save-The-Dates (aka STD's) to give your guests plenty of information to keep them satisfied before the formal invites. You can find some helpful threads here: Invitations, STDs, photos & website
        3) obstacles to avoid Hmm, can't think of anything offhand. But you may find some good advice in some post-wedding reviews, or there are some threads entitled "what I would and wouldn't do again", those are helpful. Try looking here: Wedding Reviews
        4) oversightsAgain, i think those thread ideas listed above may help
        5) paperwork neededI'll see if I can dig up some good threads for ya...

              You will definitely get a lot of advice here.

              I am photographing two weddings at the Rio Palace in Los Cabos, one is this December and one is next year in April - I will share my pictures when I return.
