  1. Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has gotten married at the Hilton Puerto Vallarta or have attended a wedding there? Puerto Vallarta wasn't originally in my scope of plans but I do have family members who travel with Hilton often and have some perks that can help us with our stay I don't see much on their website but wanted to get an idea if anyone knows! Thanks!
  2. Love my Fiance and ring Being engaged is such a great feeling!
  3. Hi @@dreamweddings, I really appreciate you starting this threat! I just wrote a new forum about this. I am newly engaged and actively looking for an all inclusive resort for about 35-50 guests. We would like to get married in either May or August 2016 (not very much time!). I thought wedding packages included everything but I am slowly beginning to realize that there are really important items missing from some of these packages such as - DJ, Reception, Photography, Videography. I am slowly beginning to worry that my tight budget (of $10K) may not be very realistic. Could you please help share some of the common additional costs that a destination bride would experience? Thank you very much!
  4. Thanks! Does anyone have a good recommendation for a travel agent? I have been working with a local one but I am getting the feeling they are not very experienced in DW.
  5. Hi Everyone, I am a newbie and I am completely overwhelmed during my search for a resort. I do not know where to begin! Right now I am looking at getting married either in May or August 2016 with approximately 35-50 guests. I am looking at places in Mexico (still trying to decide where). While looking at wedding packages online, I wanted to know what are some additional costs that you can expect? I always thought that packages included everything you need (I REALLY WISH!) but I am slowly beginning to notice that some really important items are missing from packages such as photography, videography, DJ, and reception! For those experienced brides, how much did you incur in additional expenses? It is worth working with a complimentary wedding package and then working to upgrade or input extra costs towards all the extras? Thanks so much
  6. Thank you everyone for the wonderful advice. I think the hardest part is trying to figure out how and where to start my destination wedding planning There seems to be a lot of useful information on here!
  7. Hi All, Last Saturday, I was engaged to the man of my dreams and I couldn't be any happier. Out situation is tough because we have a large family, not much money to spend, and we are in a long distance relationship so we opted for a Destination wedding. I do not really know where to begin and have been trying to do some research on my own. Here are some details: - We want to get married end of July/ August 2016 (tight deadline). - We are thinking of having about 40 - 50 guests. - We really want an all inclusive resort. - We are thinking Mexico but are open to ideas Is a $7K budget really doable? This would include our wedding packages, resort, and travel. We would have the guests pay for their travel and resort costs and would ideally love to find something affordable for the, We are young and inlove and unfortunately not rich. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
  8. I just got engaged and I have no idea where to begin. I am open to all places, not just Mexico. However I'm under a pretty tight budget under $10k. Ideally $7k. Is it doable? For an all inclusive ?
