    Hi everyone-
    I'm fairly new to this forum (I just joined last week), but my fiance and I traveled to Vallarta last weekend to start the whole wedding planning process, so I figured I'd share.
    First of all, we met Priscilla and Hector (Prisar Vallarta), and we're definitely going to go with them as our wedding planners. They're super nice (and their kids are adorable too-- the baby actually puked on me a little), and they seem to really know what they're talking about when it comes to weddings in Vallarta. We actually got to see 2 weddings they did on Saturday night-- one at Krystal Vallarta, and the other at Mayan Palace (which I'm pretty sure was the wedding of Adrienne, who posts to this site). They were absolutely beautiful!
    Besides finding our wedding planner, we're also pretty sure we're settled on a site for the reception...a villa called Las Palapas in Nuevo Vallarta. We'll be staying there with our immediate families for the week leading up to the wedding, and then the reception will be held on the lawn and beach areas. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the inside, because there was a honeymoon couple occupying it, but it looks fantastic from the outside. The plan is to construct a dance floor right there on the beach, which should be awesome (that's what they did at the Mayan Palace wedding, and it looked great). It's exciting to finally have a picture in my mind of what it will all look like!
    The next step is to decide on a date...we looked at our calendars, and tentatively came up with March 21, 2009. We were thinking maybe late March would be a little bit warmer than February (it got kind chilly in the evenings, especially with the cold breeze coming off the water). I kind of wish we could do it earlier, (partially because I don't want to wait any longer, and also because I turn 29 on March 4th '09, and for some reason it sounds better saying I got married at 28 instead of 29...I know, it sounds really stupid!), but I also want the best weather conditions, so I guess it's okay to wait.
    Anyway, that's a wrap-up of my Vallarta trip. There's SOOO much more to say, but I barely know you people, so I won't bore you with the details (I'll wait until we know each other a little better before I do that ). Thanks for indulging me!

        Congratulations, Lisa!
        Puerto Vallarta has to be one of my favorite places and I can't wait to get there in April for my site visit at Las Caletas. Your details are encouraging and you can never be too long on details - especially when it comes to PV. Can't wait to hear more as you go along in your planning process.

                  Thanks for your review Lisa! Priscilla emailed me some pics from a wedding at the Krystal this weekend. I’m pretty sure that was the wedding you attended.

                  She mentioned that they had a Marimba band but she wasn’t to excited about them. Did you get a chance to listen to them (during the cocktail hour)? If so, what are your thoughts? And we are planning to get the chocolate brown place mats, did you get a chance to see them on the tables?

                  Sorry, so many questions, but I didn’t get a chance for a site visit L and would love some feedback!
