3 Tips from Cabo Pacific Tours for Planning Your Destination Beach Wedding in Cabo San Lucas


July 13, 2016

Located in the southern tip of Baja California, Cabo San Lucas is one of Mexico’s top destinations for a beach wedding. Cabo weddings provide you with top-rate amenities and services, along with some of the country’s best spas. The area boasts a wide variety of locations and places to host your destination celebration – whether large or small. And Cabo Pacific Tours has already scouted out those best venues, so don’t worry about that part of the plan. Let us help you find that perfect spot for the ceremony.  

1. Picking that Perfect Spot
The location of your wedding determines not only the mood but also the travel, time and budget required to make it happen. You could go for a rustic feeling, sophisticated, sporty, etc. Your wedding elements should say something about your personal style and your passions. Did he propose on the beach? Think about gathering your crew in Cabo San Lucas for a beach wedding, where guests can zipline through the treetops before the rehearsal dinner.

2. Timing
If you're wondering how to plan a stress-free destination wedding, keep in mind that you need to get things moving as soon as possible. If you choose to marry during high (tourist) season, you'll want to reserve hotel blocks and venues right now and send out save-the-date info 10 to 12 months in advance, so guests can book their flights and accommodations before prices skyrocket. Keep in mind that the best weather in popular vacation destinations tends to correlate with tourist season, when there are typically more crowds, fewer hotel and venue availabilities, and higher rates all around. If you choose to go right after high season, you may be able to save yourself and your guests some money and still enjoy great weather. While off-season will mean fewer crowds, the weather can be sketchy, and you may find that many stores, venues, and vendors close up shop.

3. Take a Recon Trip  
Plan on visiting Cabo at least one time well before the wedding. Let Cabo Pacific Tours scout and secure your key venues for the ceremony and reception. They can also take care of securing hotels for guests and a rehearsal dinner venue. Ask their advise also about local suppliers such as caterers, florists and photographers. Don't forget to schedule tastings with a local caterer, see sample bouquets from the florist, and plan a hair and makeup session with a local salon. Last but not least, organize activities – golf, skyboarding, swimming with dolphins, etc. – for your guests.
