The Most Important Day of Your Life – Planning the Perfect Wedding in Cabo San Lucas
It’s fairy tale time, the day you walk down the aisle into an everlasting commitment with your true love. We like to say it’s the most important day of your life, but even if you believe that celebratory events like the birth of children are more important, it is undeniable that all such future happiness begins on this day, the day of your wedding.
Not only is it the most important day of your life, it’s also the most romantic. This is princess time for brides, who finally get to fulfill the dream scenario they’ve imagined a thousand times, hand-in-hand with their charming princes.
From commitment and kisses to dinner and dancing, your wedding day is a celebration of love and romance generally, and of your love for each other specifically. And unlike serendipitous and play-it-by-ear celebrations, this is one you can plan for, and absolutely should plan for to ensure every single detail is exactly as you’ve imagined.
If you are planning a destination wedding–and given the option, why wouldn’t you choose to get married in one of the most spectacularly beautiful places on earth–then you’ll definitely need an ally to help in the planning process, even if you have a passing familiarity with the place from previous vacations or visits. There are simply too many details, such as knowledge of local venues and vendors, that require professional help, a trusted ally.
If you’re planning a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas–and why wouldn’t you, given that even among gorgeous tropical locales it’s a standout, with a spectacular variety of mountain, desert, beach and ocean vistas–then that ally should be Creative Destination Events.
The CDE Advantage
Creative Destination Events is the premier full-service planning and production company in Cabo San Lucas, and there’s nothing our talented team likes more than working with couples to plan and execute their dream wedding.
Our process at CDE starts with a one-on-one consultation in which your dedicated planner will tease out your vision for the perfect wedding. From there, we’ll start the transition from vision to reality by means of timelines, digital renderings and three-dimensional floorplans, before finally helping you pull off the biggest moment of your life with smooth precision and seamless production.
Along the way, however, there are a lot of other decisions that have to be made. But we’re committed to close working relationships with our clients, and take pride in our quick responses to queries and questions
Site venue is among of the biggest of the pre-wedding planning decisions. It may be that you ultimately choose different venues for the ceremony, reception, and even the rehearsal dinner, but for simplicity’s sake let’s assume it is merely one all-purpose venue.
Even so, there are many factors to consider. How many people are you expecting to attend? What is your budget? Does the venue work well with your style and vision? Is the venue appropriately equipped and provisioned for all of the vendors you have in mind?
Luckily for those planning a wedding in Cabo San Lucas, it and sister city San José del Cabo each offer a wealth of well-appointed and picturesque venues, in a variety of sizes, locations and rental price points.
An early site visit will be necessary for couples so you can choose and inspect the venue, but once this has been accomplished and the venue has been rented for the date in question, the rest of the details can be handled by your dedicated wedding planner at CDE, who will remain in contact regarding the continued refining of floorplans for your chosen venue, as well as all other details, including…
Yes, you’ll need more than the professional planners of CDE to pull off your perfect wedding in Cabo San Lucas, but we’re happy to help you assemble your dream team of vendors. We have years of experience working will all the top local vendors in Los Cabos, from ministers and other officiants to caterers, florist, musicians, photographers and videographers, and more.
The most important thing in this regard is to find the vendors you want and then lock them in for the wedding date you’ve chosen. Like the locking in of your preferred venue, this is essential, and the earlier it’s accomplished the better.
We mentioned earlier that Cabo San Lucas is a standout even among gorgeous tropical wedding destinations, and this fact has not gone unnoticed by others. The Los Cabos region has been and continues to be a very popular spot for destination weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries and renewal of vows ceremonies, which means there is always competition for the best venues and the best vendors. The sooner you start planning, the easier it will be to get exactly what (and who) you want.
Attention to Details
Those are the major decisions to make when planning your Cabo San Lucas wedding, but of course there are myriad other smaller details to consider, from invitations and travel plans to accommodations and local transportation.
As a wise man once said: “The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail.”
When it comes to planning a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, you might as well make that “attention to details.” But don’t get the idea that planning a destination wedding is overly difficult or troublesome.
You’re planning for the day of your dreams, so of course you want it to be perfect, but the process itself can be and should be enjoyable. That operative words “should be” are in large part, however, dependent upon whom you choose to be your ally in this endeavor.
The obvious but paramount item in regards destination weddings is that they generally take place far away from where you actually live. For destination weddings in Cabo San Lucas, that means U.S. and Canadian couples will be planning a wedding in another country. So finding the right ally in terms of wedding planners is truly the most important thing of all. Don’t worry, though. It as easy as AB…well, you know what letters come next. Right? CDE.
