    Hi Everyone,

    I could use some advice. Just as a quick note, I have to re-plan my wedding.

    We've decided to get marry just the two of us in Cabo and have a reception in Los Angeles later.

    We decided we wanted to be married on 09/01/08. The photographer we REALLY want to work with is only available in 10/08.

    Here's my question:

    Should I move our date to October? I'm worried about the weather in Cabo.

    or

    An alternative is to keep our date use another photog and fly back down for a trash the dress session with the photog we want to work with.

    Keep in mind I am in the planning stages so nothing is definite yet except my fi.


    TIA,
    Marguerite

      Have you considered getting married during the week? Maybe the photographer you want to hire has a week day open. IMO if you love the photographer, and if it's just the two of you, I would work around his/her open dates. Unless of course the date you picked holds meaning to the both of you.

        I agree with Tammy!!

        If the date isn't a special one for you.... I would work around the photographer's schedule. :)

          I think I would be more nervous about bad weather in September than in October.. we were married Oct 28.. sunny and 93 every day. :)

          The second trip for the TTD is a good idea if that's what you really want the photog for. But otherwise I agree with Tammy - unless the date is special, work with his open dates.

          Happily married since 2008

            Thanks everyone. I will talk to my fi and see how he feels about it. The date doesn't have too much meaning. We wanted a date we could remember and would be good timing to travel on our anniversaries.

            I will talk to to both Las Ventanas and One and Only Palmilla. We're down to picking those two locations.

            i have to echo angela -- sept 1 is smackdab in the middle of the hurricane season in cabo, so the liklihood that you'd be totally rain-free is pretty low. october is a much safter bet for clear weather.
