Cabo 101

Recommended Posts

Hi there! I am recently engaged and looking to get married in July 2008 in Los Cabos. I am in the process of emailing around to different venues--but do like Dreams (am waiting to hear back from them).


In the meantime, can anyone help with the following:

1) Venues, if I book 7 day stay a wedding package is included. I read that some of you are using ipods and paying for speaker rental. What about mariachi bands, reception etc? Is this all additional?

2) How long did it take for you to receive your marriage certificate?

3) I have read rave reviews about Wedding Planners from Fiesta Los Cabos. I have also sent them an email, but can anyone provide an estimate based on their experience of approx cost?


Thanks so much in advance--really appreciate any help you can provide.

Yes, any live music is an additional cost... ceremony prices range from $300 for one hour to $550 for one hour, this was like guitar trio, mariachi, sax, guitar, flute, etc...


Bands for the reception ran anywhere from $800 per hour with minimum of 3 hours... to $1200 an hour min 3 hours. DJs seemed to be about $300 an hour min of 3 hours. Hope that helps. We went with a live band and the cost was $5,000 for 4 hour set, but we are huge music junkies-this was extremely important to us.

    • 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.
