    Hello all! This looks like a great site to help me get information on having a wedding in Mexico. Got engaged last November 13 in Negril Jamaica and now that the holidays are almost over, need to start planning! We are planning for a Spring 2008 wedding (April/May) in Mazatlan Mexico. One main reason is that I have a girlfriend that lives there that will hopefully be a great help to us. Also, we are not going the "resort wedding package" route... but I'm nervous and worried about getting guests there (from Toronto), securing suppliers (flowers, photography, etc etc). Anyways, can't wait to get started and hearing from ANYONE who has gotten married or will be married in Mazatlan.

    Thanks!
    Darlene

      Welcome Darlene! I don't have any friends who have gotten married there, but I have family members who recently went to a wedding their (a relative of theirs lives in that area). What I do know is that if your not going the resort wedding, and you are using local vendors, etc. it is very affordable. If your friend speaks spanish (I'm assuming she does) I'm sure she can ask around as to which vendors have a good reputation. If you want to know something specific I would be more than happy to ask my aunt if she could get the names of vendors that her niece used, etc. Hope some of this helps and good luck with the planning.

        welcome darlene! I don't think we have any Mazatlan brides yet but I'm sure you'll find other info which will pertain to your wedding. I think I've exhausted my search for PV locatations, so now that I'm bored (and waiting for the hotels to reply) I'll look at some Mazatlan locations for you!

          Wow, such quick responses!! Glenda, a list of any vendors is a great start for me since I have nothing yet! I am planning to fly down to Mazatlan this Spring sometime to start the bookings and planning... so the more info I have to go down with, the better!! It will be a full week of meeting planners, vendors, etc.!! I'm curious to know what seasonal flowers will be available in April/May in mazatlan.
