PV caterers - my first post!

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

Finally joined the fourm after my future sister-in-law kept sending me such great info that she had found here (she was married in Florence in May, and has total post-destination-wedding depression, so she stalks the forum non-stop).

 

I need help with catering in PV. I have spent some time looking around at previous threads, but it looks like many of you are getting married at resorts where I assume catering is included. We have opted for the villa route, and I am hoping some of you might have suggestions. We go to Vallarta every year, and avoid the touristy hang-outs like the plague. We stay at the Sheraton Buganvilias so we can walk into downtown and get out of the resort environment as often as possible. And we always rent a car and drive to different towns up and down the coast. We chose a villa so that we could have an intimate environment without any of the limitations of a resort wedding, especially concerning food. We are total foodies, and prefer an authentic taco stand on the side of the road to a lot of the poor attempts at fancy cuisine we have found in Vallarta over the years.

 

We found a planner that we really like, but the catering options he sent us are disappointing. Everything seems like typical American wedding food - lots of Italian/French/Asian influence. I am not having 125 people fly all the way to Mexico just to feed them bad mushroom ravioli or fried wontons. My fiance's family is originally from Mexico, so they are expecting a real Mexican feast. I want ceviche and roast suckling pig and homemade tortillas etc. etc. I am waiting for more suggestions from my planner, but I thought maybe some of you had used a caterer/restaurant for your wedding or even rehearsal dinner that you could recommend.

 

Thanks - can't wait to get planning with all of your help!

Sorry I wish I could help. I am getting married at Las Caletas and food is included.

 

I totally understand how you want some yummy Mexican food, instead of the typical chicken cordon bleu.

 

Maybe you should try asking restaurants if they cater. That might be a good start.

Hi,

 

I too am a PV bride and getting married in a private villa. I had a hard time finding a caterer, but finally found one that met my expectations. We're having a Mexican buffet.

I can send you our buffet menu (we also had the option of a sit down dinner, if you prefer)

If you like what you see, let's combine forces and leverage the prices?

When are you getting married?

Feel free to shoot me a email directly at judy_alamars@yahoo.com

 

Thanks!

I just started receiving some of the catering options from the potential WC and i know what you mean -- BORING! I would be much happier with an actual taco stand at the villa then caprese salad. Anyway, I would love to know more about your process of picking a villa, WC and caterer. I saw that you are in SF -- I'm in pac heights till end of May if you want to join forces for a little while.

 

Best of luck!

    • 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?
