Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I'm so glad I found this site. I am trying to plan our destination wedding in less than three months!!!!!! Talk about stress. I'm looking for a nice, affordable, adult only, all inclusive in the Riveria or Puerto Vallarta (still not sure). Any help would be appreciated!

wow, 3 months is super short...PV and riviera maya are very different.


if you answer these questions we might be able to help you pick a spot that is right for you.


1. how many people will be at your wedding?

2. AI or non-AI?

3. what are you trying to keep the budget under for the per night room cost?

4. legal or symbolic wedding?

5. would you be willing to do a weekday event (most sats. and sundays are gone)


welcome to the forum...sarah (awharider) is also in your enck of the woods!

It can be done....I think! One of the girls on the board planned her wedding in 6 weeks :)


I think the key is to be flexible, especially with dates.

Welcome to the forum! I live in Lansing too:)

I'm getting married in Cabo, so I'm not too much help in terms of location, but there's tons of other stuff we can help you out with.

Let us know what questions you have!

You are very brave to plan a DW in 3 months!

Welcom, like Tammy said If you are flexible with your dates I am sure you can do it. I would think the number one priority would be to book your site first! Take a look around here there are some really good resorts in both the PV and RM area. Good luck! let us know how we can help. :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
