Located at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, Cabo brims with sand and sun, activities, and life. It is also a picturesque location for a destination dream wedding. When searching for wedding venues in Cabo, most wedding planners will suggest looking at wedding villas as an option. Villas are a great way to host an intimate wedding and have an unforgettable experience with all of your closest friends and family.
Cabo is home to a plethora of beautiful locations to tie the knot. Follow this guide, and you will be well on your way to booking the best wedding venues in Cabo.
Reasons to Book a Wedding in Cabo San Lucas
There’s a certain magic to a destination wedding that’s hard to come by in more traditional wedding settings. Destination weddings are often smaller and more intimate and they provide a unique experience. You will have more time with your guests, new activities, and beautiful scenery to enjoy, both at the event and later when looking at photos.
A Cabo wedding villa will provide the ideal setting for an intimate weekend with those who are closest to you. You will all be able to stay at the same location and enjoy each other’s company. It’s the excuse of a lifetime to have all your favorite people in the same place. Once you decide to have your weeding in Cabo San Lucas, you can leave the rest to us…
Choosing the Date
When choosing the perfect date for your wedding, be sure to account for weather and crowd trends during the season of your wedding in Cabo San Lucas. The best months for visiting Cabo are May and June because the crowd of Spring Breakers has dissipated and the Summer season has not yet begun. This also means that prices are a bit more convenient, when compared to high season.
October and November are nice in Cabo as well considering sunny days and cool nights, but you will need to book as soon as possible because villas book as soon as it gets cold up north; snowbirds love Cabo!
If you are considering Cabo because you want to participate in a particular activity, check the calendar to find the best time to do so. If you want to go snorkeling, for example, the best time to see fish is at the end of the summer or during the fall. The best time for whale watching is between the second half of December and the first half of April. And if you are a cautious planner, be advised that although hurricanes don’t hit Cabo often, the Pacific hurricane season lasts from May to October.
Finding a Wedding Villa
Reserving a wedding villa is a big commitment, so you’ll want to be absolutely certain you have made the right decision. There’s nothing like seeing a place with your own eyes, so book a trip to Mexico to scout out some locations in person. Once you’ve booked your trip, put together a guest list so you have an idea of what size villa you will need to accommodate everyone.
Start researching wedding venues Cabo San Lucas before you go on your scouting trip to get an idea of your options and to guide your search once you arrive. Then, determine your ideal setting: do you want a beach view or a pool on the premises? This will also help narrow down the list of options.
When you visit Cabo to look at venues, it will also give you a chance to meet vendors in person. Take this opportunity to do a food tasting and a hair and makeup trial as well. We’ve heard from a Wedding Planner Cabo that venues such as Breathless Cabo San Lucas Wedding will charge for the venue visit and require a minimum night stay during your research trip. Make sure you have the conversations before you get on the plane.
Let Everyone Know that you are looking to have a Wedding in Cabo San Lucas
First of all, it’s a good idea to tell the bridal party that you are considering a destination wedding before you request their presence at your wedding. This will give them a chance to figure out whether their financial situations will permit the expense before they commit to attendance.
Once you have locked in your date and location, let your guests know. When it comes to save-the-dates, a general rule of the thumb will be to send them out 8 months prior to the wedding to give your guests ample official notice. It is important to inform them as far in advance as possible so they can start looking into flights and take advantage of good travel deals. It will also give them time to organize their work schedules and take time off if necessary. Try to help your group by searching for special Wedding Packages Cabo.
Local Marriage Requirements
If you decide to tie the knot in Cabo, you will need to get a Mexican marriage license before getting married. Luckily, it isn’t hard to do. You should, however, consult with local authorities and a wedding planner Cabo before arriving in Mexico to make sure you bring all the required documentation.
In general, the process goes as follows: Once in Mexico, you will need to go to the local registry office and fill out an application. You should go equipped with a photo ID, copy of your birth certificates, visas, information about both sets of parents (names, occupations, ages, nationalities, addresses), and four witnesses over the age of 18 and who have valid photo IDs (witnesses cannot be biological parents). You may also have to provide a blood sample. In most cases, civil marriage in Mexico will also be valid in the United States.
