Okay!!! So, I have almost been deadset on Puerto Vallarta (maybe Villa Celeste , Villa Mystique or something along those lines). However, my fiance is from Mexico and says it's too "toursity" for him. Are there any locations nearby that are just as unique...maybe a private villa or spa...in Nuevo Vallarta or the surrounding areas? I don't really dig big resorts.

 

I've also considered Costa Careyes because it is AMAZING!!! But I think it's too far out considering the budget. Plus, I don't want guests to have to travel too far out from the airport.

 

Thanks in advance for responses!

This is one of the real estate agents that's famous in Nuevo Vallarta for having some of the best villa rentals ... Casa China Blanca - El Farallon - Costa Banderas - North Shore Puerto Vallarta - La Punta Realty, Punta de Mita luxury real estate and vacation rentals - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The one villa I've worked at several times in Nuevo Vallarta is China Blanca - I like the villa but it is very stark/modern. But I'm sure, if that's not your style, La Punta Realty can help you find something else.

 

You might also consider looking at villa rentals in Sayulita and San Pancho (it's also called San Francisco). Sayulita is about an hour north of Vallarta and San Pancho is about 5 minutes further north. Some really beautiful villas in both places. Sayulita is sortof a hippie community and has some great artistic shops - slightly "touristy" but not overly. San Pancho is definitely more rustic - but we drove by some amazing villas (at least from the outside!).

Yes, I think he probably does have some suggestions. He has mentioned Cabo, which, to me, seems just as "touristy" as PV. Also, his sister-in-law lived in Cabo with her ex-husband. I really don't want to drag her there and bring up negative memories. The problem is:

 

He is Catholic (even though he doesn't attend church on a regular basis) and he sort of wants to get married in a Catholic church. I think Catholic churches (especially in Mexico) are gorgeous and I think Catholicism is a beautiful! But, when it comes down to it, I am non-denominational and would prefer to get married in nature.

 

I think he understands and he LOVES, LOVES, LOVES the beach, so I think it is the "next best thing" to him. In fact, he might even prefer it. He kind of swings back and forth on this issue. Of course, in a way, I feel guilty and don't want to pester him on locations. But I probably will once we get "officially" engaged. LOL!

You just made me think of something .... I know your guy doesn't like PV .... but a good compromise (to the whole catholic thing) would be the chapel at Hacienda San Angel - it is absolutely gorgeous. You could get married there and then go to the Botanical Gardens (outside of town, really pretty) or even go back up north for the reception. Anyway, just a thought wink.gif.

I had another thought! You could recreate a "chapel" outside ... one time we did this wedding where we created two stained glass (they weren't stained glass - but we painted them to look like they were) pieces at the front of the ceremony - you could have something similar done and, then, have additional ones on each side to give it an "outdoor chapel" feel.

 

I was thinking about this glass church we saw one time in Arkansas - even the ceiling was made of glass!

 

Anyway, just a thought! :)

You are so creative Mishka! I checked out Hacienda San Angel...it really is beautiful. I love how the chapel opens up to a view of the ocean. It's religious, but still with a natural element. I also love your "outdoor chapel" idea.

 

I spent some time viewing your galleries and I can see how you make such a wonderful event designer. Your events are absolutely gorgeous!!!

    • 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?
