    Misters come in all shapes and forms- I've seen them at restaurants, hotel pool areas, and there are some cheaper, smaller scale ones that I've seen at people's homes. They release a cool and sheer water mist to help bring down the overall temperature and provide comfort for the outdoors. I'm looking into other alternatives and will speak to my wedding planner (the woman who owns Villa Mia) about other options. Like I said, the best weddings I have ever been to are those wherein the bride and groom really took care of their guests comforts and needs and so I am most concerned about a great experience for my guests. What "fans" are you referring to and are there places in PV to rent them from? Are they "pretty" or will they clash with a formal wedding?

    I'm glad you're familiar with the Villa Mia as no one on this message board seems to have mentioned it. What do you know about it, esp. with reference to weddings? Are you a wedding planner? I went to your website but unfortunately, my Spanish is not good enough to understand it fully.
    Ahhh ... I see what you're talking about. I've never seen those in PV, but that's not to say they aren't available in PV. Before becoming too worried about the weather, I would wait and see what it's like one to two weeks out from your wedding date - I think, as long as you provide cool things for your guests to drink, fans, and, perhaps, umbrellas, you should be fine and I think your guests will have a great time. But that's just my opinion . Last year the weather was really nice the end of October. The year before it was warm. It just depends.

    I'm talking about individual fans - PV has a lot of sandalwood fans which you could dress-up with accents, or you could have hand-made fans which could be really pretty with your decor, depending on what you're doing (we do all of those things, if you want - or you could probably order from a company in the States). I have fans in my galleries, but here's more direct link to ones in flickr:

    fans with accents: Mexico Chic! Sandalwood Fan Details on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
    same fans on chairs: Mexico Chic! Ceremony chairs on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    hand-painted fans: Mexican Villa Simplicity-Fans on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    natural hand-made fans: South African Elegance-Ceremony Fans on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    I have oodles more ideas for fans, but it just depends on the couple and the wedding and the decor as to what sortof design we choose to do/make.

    RE: Villa Mia
    I think it's an amazing villa - the only problem with Villa Mia is for your providers/vendors because there are oodles and oodles of stairs and it's hard hard work to get down and back up - I wouldn't be surprised if your vendors don't charge you a trifle more because of the stairs. Other than that, I think it has a great lay-out for a wedding. How many people are you expecting??

    I have photos I took of Villa Mia when I went there to investigate for another wedding - so, in case you want some untouched photos of that villa, my link to that is here: Villa-Villa Mia - a set on Flickr

    I'm not a wedding planner - I'm a designer - which means I handle everything that has to do with wedding decor - from flowers to placement of tables, selection of chairs, placecards/escort cards/table markers, fans, candles, etc. My website is in English and Spanish - to read the English part, you just choose "enter", and not "entrar". I think this will take you directly to the English portion. Puerto Vallarta Wedding Planners :: Wedding Design

    Any other questions, just let me know :).

          You know, it really depends. Saturday I did a ceremony and it was really overcast and cloudy, we had a 6 p.m. ceremony and everything was fine but it did start raining around 7:30. Today it's rained ALL DAY long.

          I think my best advice would be to have a back-up plan in the chance that it does rain, rather than trying to adjust your ceremony time to miss it - June is still the "iffy" month - it's really July/Aug/Sept when the rain starts to hit at a regular time every day.
