The Dazzling Details Contact: Kristin

Recommended Posts

Hi, Jenetta. I am trying to decide between getting married in Cabo or Puerto Vallarta (Las Caletas, specifically). Can I ask why you decided NOT to get married in PV? Or just tell me if it was something bad about getting married in PV that made you change your mind!

I initially wanted a boutique type of resort. PV have alot of massive properties or highrises. I selected the Quinta Real initially but it was too expensive for guests. Followed by Villa Amor in Salyulita but they wouldn't budge on pricing since I would reserve the entire property. I also liked the villa idea but family chose against that. In addition, PV is older so when looking at the rooms I thought it looked more outdated. PV is a great value right now especially with Cabo's popularity. Also, knowing what I know now, if we decided on PV I would've used the Dreams property. Great value, nice rooms, beach front.

 

Let me know what you decide...good luck!

I contacted The Dazzling Details, and Kristin responded almost immediately. However, it sounds like she's very busy! Since I am looking into a wedding in April or June 2007 - she wasn't able to fit me in. Here was her respose ...

she did the same to me. she was the first i vender i contacted. She told me she couldn't plan that far in advance (June 200cool.gif and to contact her next summer! That kind of turned me off!

 

I'm starting to get the feeling that I should go with the coordinator at the hotel we choose instead of going through an outside agency. It seems like its best to go with an outside agency if your planning to have your wedding at a villa.

 

 

I'm so confused!

amy,

i would hold off on getting a coord until you decide what you want...most of the time, the larger resorts have in-house WC so you can start there...if you want something more complicated, then you can think of hiring another WC but you will waste $$ doing it the other way around...some WC will sometimes sway you from getting married at a resort so they can make more commission...i had a WC in PV in fact email me there info and they alluded to that so we both got higher commissions...that really turned me off.

just do research...start jotting down what you envision your DW as...if you need feedback or want someone to bounce ideas off, we are here...is you have random questions...we are here.

Amy I am so excited that you found this site. I have been a fan of Kristin since day one! I really wish that she were in Cabo. Each wedding is different, not cookie cutter at all.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
