      Natasha- WOW! Everything looked so nice, thanks for sharing so many of your pictures with us, they are wonderful!
      I love all the candid pictures of your guests, everyone looks so happy. You and your husband look radiant on the beach- you can truly see the love and happiness shared between you on that day.
      Your reception looks beautiful- I love that you had firedancers and fireworks, my FI and I have been debating those, now I think we should do both.
      Who were the couple in black leading your group in dance? That looks like tons of fun!
      I'm sure you'll answer all that in your review...I'll wait!
      Congratulations Natasha- everything looked perfect!

        I'm working on a "what I would do/what I wouldn't do" post, but here's a preview.

        Here's the number one piece of advice. I would definitely have the firedancers. If the budget is tight, cut out flowers. Honestly, the properties in Cabo are beautiful and adding flowers goes unnoticed. I cut a few flowers but, looking back, could have removed another $230 from the flower budget without even noticing it. The firedances were $675 and Maye did not recommend tipping them. TOTALLY worth it as it makes your wedding so different than any other wedding you have attended and they were there for a long time.

        The fireworks are $2000 for 2 minutes. We loved them and so did all of our guests (makes weddings more fun for guys who all came up to me and claimed they were pyrotechnic fanatics). However, if you are budget conscious - 1 minute would have worked just fine. They are really nice fireworks - very professional and impressive. NOTE TO BRIDES - you will get a bit of soot on your dress. Not a big deal to me, but should be noted.

        i agree with the firedancers...i really wanted them but we decided to do casino night which was fun and worked out for us because they had the firedancers at the resort for dinner the night before and they were great!

          G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S-!!! The love between the 2 of you is soooo evident in those pics. Very inspiring! Also, thanks for the tips regarding flowers vs. fire dancers - very helpful.

              Wow Natasha, your pics are so great!

              I had been waiting to see how everything went. And Tammy is right, you do look like a combination of Shania and Finola. She hit it right on the money with that comparison! You look so beautiful.

              We saw your fireworks the night of your wedding. We were at Las Ventanas having a drink when they went off. All the people at the Ventanas restaurant and bar got up to go see your fireworks. They were great!

                I need a bigger buget so I can do fireworks. I think it would be really cool, but it just seems like everytime we turn around the wedding cost more and more.

                  No kidding! I liked the fireworks, but I really liked the fire dancers. TammyM - how many attendees are you at now? Maybe there are other things we can dream up.

                  BTW - sparklers are really pretty dramatic in photos (see Meaghan's photos).

                    Congrats again Natasha your pics were a great to view. You and your guests looked like you had a great time on the dance floor. I loved all of the details and extras (i.e. dance instructors, fireworks) your friends and family will be talking about your wedding for many years to come.

                    Has anyone ever told you that you favor Shania Twain?
