Congratulations on your engagement! We are thrilled that you are considering a destination wedding to celebrate this special occasion with loved ones.
We understand that it can be overwhelming to plan a wedding and especially during these uncertain times. Here is some advice we like to share with you to guarantee the safety and well-being of your wedding guests. Please note these points are based on current information and resources we have regarding Covid19 and may change as we learn more about the virus.
We advise you to look for a secluded venue or remote location. Baja offers many options from luxury villas to small boutique hotels from Todos Santos to the East Cape. You are sure to find the perfect spot.
There are also countless farm-to-table restaurants providing you with a safe environment for you and your guests. To name a few of our couples favorites for the delicious food we recommend Flora Farms, Acre, Tamarindos, and Jazamango.
Don’t give up on your wedding dream in Mexico as elopement is a good alternative. Providing it will give you peace knowing your loved ones are in the comfort of their home. The best news is that we now have available in Cabo videographers offering professional live streaming so no one misses a moment of your celebration.
- FOOD SERVICE:
In this current situation buffets are unfortunately not recommended at this time due to health regulations. Luckily we have very creative chefs in Los Cabos and we know they will come up with tasty plated options for all our events.
- LAYOUTS & SETUPS:
Our design esthetic currently situates tables at the recommended six feet of social distancing to allow easy service flow. We will recommend a private area such as a terrace if you are staying in a hotel, for example, to avoid any outsiders approaching your setup.
- VENDORS POLICIES:
Please carefully read over all vendor contracts as much can be overlooked in all of the excitement and with working with so many different vendors.
Does the contract include a cancellation or postponing clause? Are the details of the refunds clear? Note some deposits may not be refundable or partially refundable. Most of the time it will depend on the time or supplies your vendor has already invested in your wedding.
Also during this time new vendors’ contracts should include a hygiene and sanitization clause, especially vendors such as hairstylists and makeup artists. But also caters, cake vendors, rental companies, or any vendor in direct contact with your guests food and beverage. Make sure you are aware of their policies protocol.
As wedding and events coordinators we are currently reviewing all this information with our vendors to make sure that they all fulfill the new health and hygiene requirements.
- OUTSIDE VENDORS:
As much as we love working with our outside vendors from all over the World, at this time we need to take a closer look at safety measures and what is best for you and your guests. Please check with the airlines for the most up-to-date information prior to travel as new policies may have been instilled such as no carry-on luggage which will inhibit professional photographers from carrying their equipment.
We would love the opportunity to make your dream wedding come true. Let us know how we can further service you. firstname.lastname@example.org
