Sooooooo overwhelmed....

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I can't believe how much information is on this site and I can't decide where to begin!

 

I'm so overwhelmed right now!!! I don't have a date or a place yet and I have been having the hardest time finding one. Every where I look it seems they are just about to start construction! Argh!

 

Does anyone know if the Sheraton has any flexability with their menu options?? Did they like the food?

 

Thank you!!

Welcome Shannon! Are you looking into Cabo? I can send you the Sheraton's menu when I get home tonight - I have it on my home cmputer if you're interested. It's a gorgeous hotel - really lovely.
Tell us what aspects are most important and we can make suggestions!

All Inclusive or Not:
Ceremony Location: Waterfront or church
Food: Most important or only kinda important
Atmosphere: Party, elegant, family friendly

I have my sight review up here somewhere and we went to go see a million places... let me see if I can find it.

Welcome! I know the feeling - I finally just booked a location last week after stressing about it for weeks. This site has DEFINITELY helped. Ask any questions you have, and you're sure to get an answer. Most of the girls here are Cabo brides, but there's many Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Maya, Cancun, etc. as well.

welcome1.gif Hi Shannon! You have come to the right place! There is so much info here about a multitude of locales and venues. Take your time & don't freak out! (Well, go ahead, we understand).

 

Remeber, we've all been in the same boat at one time or another. Picking your geographical location & selecting a venue will definitely be one of the more stressful & time consuming things to do. Once that part is done you will be relieved!

Shannon,

 

I LOVE the Sheraton. I just got back from Cabo on Friday, and originally I wanted to be married on Pedregal beach, but after visiting the Sheraton I changed it to there. They have to restaurants that would be great for a dinner / reception. De Cortez and Pitahayas, both are located right next to the beach with lights shining on the water (very pretty) De Cortez is a little bit more money and slower service but I absolutely love the restaurant. Pitahayas, the service was fast and the food was great as well. You really can't go wrong with either place.

 

I'm having a small wedding, about 10 or so people so I asked both places if their menu was flexible (I wanted our guests to pick from their actual dinner menu) and they said it wouldn't be a problem. Both places said it was ok to bring in your own cake (but they can make the cake as well) I have pricing for both places if your interested. I also have some pics, but I suck at taking pictures so I'm sure you can find better ones online.. lol

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Welcome Shannon!

 

Like Tammy said, picking the place is the hardest thing!!

If you have chosen Cabo for your destination, then you just have to narrow down to what hotel, probably based on budget, size of wedding, etc.... and then go from there! Any questions, ask away!!

Welcome Shannon- just take it one thing at a time. Decide on a venue, then start weeding through all the info on here piece by piece. The Search function is a lifesaver!

Hi Shannon,

 

I know how overwhelming it seems at first. What helped me the most was to envision the type of event that we wanted to have, and then look for locations that fit what we were looking for and were in our budget range. I promise, it's not as difficult as it looks, and this board is an absolutely invaluable resource for information on vendors in Cabo and elsewhere.

 

Good luck and please feel free to ask questions. We were all in your shoes at one point :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
