2016 wedding specials

Well sometimes brides are in the right place/right time or flexible, and when hotels have space sitting open they are looking to fill them.

Here are a couple of great offerings that I can help you with if you are willing to play:

Want to get married prior to the end of June and just haven’t done anything about it, well this may light the fire.  One of the top hotels/locations in the OC is offering their premium space at very reasonable F&B minimums if you are open to a Mon-Thursday wedding.  Now it may seem strange, but if most of the guests are travelling too and taking extra time, then doing it during the week is not going to be a bother for the guests, in fact air can be cheaper than flying on weekends and I know that a lot of vendors see a weekday wedding as a bonus and are quite flexible with their fees, with the exception of florists of course, they have product that still needs to be paid for.  So small or large, consider a weekday it is really a benefit to you. And if they have Fri-Sundays open yes sirree they are wanting to make it work.  Give me a call, lets chat and see what we can do.

If S CA is not really for you, or you are looking for June-October, then lets head to Mexico, so many great locations, ie Cabo, Cancun, and some of the resorts in the Playa del Carmen region are pretty fabulous, very spread out and you get the beach as well as vegetation to not feel like you are in a concrete jungle like Cancun (which is absolutely fabulous for those wanting action) and you are close to the really quaint restaurant row area of Playa which is what you kind of hope you are going to experience while in Mexico.  So let me know if any of this sounds like you and lets get it going:

If you are 30 people total or under, $15,500 gives you:

For the B&G, airport transfers, Comp room on the wedding night, room upgrade, late checkout, 1 50 minute massage each, access to the lounge, brides hair and makeup on wedding day/including a trial, bouquet and bout

Your ceremony is held at an oceanview gazebo decorated with fabric and flowers, petal aisle, and an officiant/English.

A violinist is included for cocktail time, as well as, 4 hour bar, and a dj

Hors D’oevures and dinner and wedding cake.  They do different levels of food/beverage offerings, so based on your personal preference you could end up at $18,300 for the same size group, and of course they would never turn anyone away, there is a per person rate you can add on if you are 31 or more total.

Your guests get 15% off spa services, 10% off breakfast the morning after the wedding, arse a special wedding rate for accommodations.

Till next time

Destination wedding – Cabo

IMG_1808 IMG_1876

Well as someone who probably has 100% of my weddings being destination to S CA, either the B&G, and  one or all guests, I understand for sure the appeal and romance of doing a wedding in a location that creates great memories for you and the guests, and possibly has some personal connection as well.

A big part of being able to plan a destination wedding and do it calmly/enjoy the process is to have someone on the ground at the location you can trust and work well with, however when going to destinations where your language is not their first language or if you are an A type personality their culture is more relaxed/laid back in communication, theprocess for you may not be enjoyable, I met a couple once who were on their 3rd trip to their hotel in Cabo because their contact who was handling everything for them and being their co-ordinator had changed twice and they from the beginning never felt a comfort level that everyone was on the same page.  Could have saved a lot of money by having a planner in their area or somewhere else who handles the communication for them, a lot less stressful and overwhelming.

From an American couple’s perspective most want their destination wedding to be accessible to most guests they want to invite, have English spoken, be reasonably priced in air and costs once there.  So Hawaii, islands in the Caribbean, Mexico, ie Cancun and Cabo are top choices.  This blog is on Cabo as it really encompasses all those wants.

The great thing with Cabo is, from a floral/décor aspect they are on top of it and sometimes I think have ideas/do things we have not even seen anyone do here in S CA.

The two pics above are the view from a suite (at one of my fave Cabo resorts) of the Pacific Ocean, I loved watching cruise ships going by, whales, and the local fishing boats and tourist boats.  Some of the suites have really large balconies so great place to have a small get together pre wedding, they have lounge areas and kitchens so you can have food/beverages you bring in to keep peeps happy pre and post wedding to keep costs down if you want. The other pic is one of the areas at this resort you could have a ceremony or cocktails at sunset, pretty awesome view/backdrop.

Of course a lot of couples want the ‘rock’ as their backdrop, so sunset ceremonies on the main beach on the Sea of Cortez is no problem.

You could have a pre or even wedding reception outdoors looking out the sea, this group looked right out to the ‘rock’ all event.   You can all be staying in this area or guests can come in from wherever they are staying to where you are having the event if for budgets that works out better.

The chapel is at the resort I was referencing at the beginning and the patio with the loungers on it are on a really secluded spa/zen resort where the area gets cleared and after a sand ceremony you have cocktails/dinner/dancing right there.

I love Cabo and have been many times and would love to help you with your destination wedding here.

Till tomorrow
