    Hello Ladies! I am so excited I found this website. I just got engaged a week ago and am planning a destination wedding to Mexico in April/May 08! Not sure of where yet, but I'm hoping to get some help. I would be curious to know if anyone has considered renting out a villa versus having a wedding at a hotel/resort? -Amy

      Welcome Amy!!

      Although I'm not having my wedding at a villa there are other brides who are. I'm not sure who, but if you are considering Puerto Vallarta you can view weddings on thedazzlingdetails.com and just search the name of the villa on google.

      Good luck!

        Welcome to the forum!

        We actually planned on having a villa wedding for awhile in PV. I think it is awesome because you have your accomodations / wedding / reception at one private place. We only decided against it because the villas we really liked had strict event capacity guidelines that we could not meet. But I say if you find one that works for you, it is a great idea. Good place for a welcome dinner or coctail party too.

          I think a few Cabo brides have done it. I considered it for awhile but in the end it was just a little too expensive for me. How many people are you thinking of? Check out Cabo San Lucas Vacation Villas, Resorts & Hotels, Los Cabos Mexico - try Villa Miguel or maybe something in the Pedregal neighborhood?

              Amy! I did look into renting villas...they are very nice and much more private. But we opt to do the resort since the wedding package was included and there were many activies and all-inclusive drinks and food at the resort. We have a tight budget and couldn't afford the extras that might come with the villas...however, I do believe there villas that have room service and food prepared for you each day. Worth checking into.

                  I think just the main difference between a resort and a villa is that at a resort you can go All inclusive so if you're on a budget and you're having a large group Id totally recommend going the Resort AI way...but there are also some beautiful villas in Cabo
