  1. I was quoted $500 when I started planning with them over a year ago. That was for any type of outside vendor (makeup/hair, dj, photographer, etc.). I can't remember if there was any fee or a small fee if the outside vendor stayed as a guest at the resort. I thought it was pretty outrageous too but after doing a lot of research, most resorts do this that I looked into. That is why we just decided to do everything at the resort. It was cheap and easier.
  2. I am using the resort photographer. It just wasn't in our budget to fly someone to Puerto Vallarta or pay the outside vendor fee for a local photographer. With that being said, I've seen the resort photographers work (which is great) and have heard nothing but good things about them. Hope that helps.
  3. This is a great idea. Do you know if there is any additional charge by the resort to do this?
  4. Thanks! This is super helpful. I guess I will just have to bite the bullet and pay for some furniture. The cocktail hour and reception are at the same place. I think because of the popularity of my wedding date, there wasn't any other option but to have it in the same location. I definitely don't want them sitting at the reception tables just yet so it looks like I will have to pay for tables and maybe some lounge furniture. Thanks for your help!
  5. I really enjoyed the fiesta. It was probably one of my favorite nights at the resort. The food is good. It is buffet style. So they had fresh salsa, guacomole, meat being cooked right in front of you, a carving station, dessert table (with churros, fruit, etc.). It was nice, a good selection. I would say that I wasn't wowed by the entertainment. They tried to get audience interaction but it seemed like people were coming to eat, staying for awhile and then leaving. For the hour or so we were there, they had a man walking around making balloons (that was actually really entertaining what he came up with), dancers, and a comedian. I would say it is worth checking out but I would probably go with doing dinner at Oceana (more intimate feel) and then maybe heading over to the Mexican Fiesta afterwards. Hope that helps!
  6. I really like this setup. Do you know how much she quoted you? Because I got pricing about tables and lounge furniture prices. I'm going with the ultimate package but I really don't want to pay for the furniture. I'm wondering if any tables/chairs are included with the package or if everything is extra?!
  7. Is there anyone who is having a cocktail hour or had one? I'm looking for some insight on what the setup is like. We are getting married at Oceana and having our recption at Las Palmas. I really don't want to pay for the cocktail tables/furniture but I'm not sure how the cocktail hour would work without that stuff. Any help is appreciated!
  8. We went to the Mexican Fiesta when we visited the resort. There were 2 weddings that night. One bride had her reception at Las Palmas and the other bride that was there just had her group all meet up at the Mexican Fiesta. They have vendors, tons of food and performances. My wedding is the same night as the Mexican Fiesta as well. I don't plan on incorporating it at all since we will be having a cocktail hour and dinner. By the time we are done, it would be 10:30 and the Fiesta would be over with. Hope that helps!
  9. Thanks sooooo much for your detailed review! Sorry to hear about the rain and what happened with Fatima!
  10. Thanks so much for sharing this! Can't wait until I get to enough posts to open it!
  11. Thanks so much for posting that schedule. Very helpful!
  12. Such a great idea. Will definitely have to check if it is in our budget.
