    FYI Peanuty468 - San Pancho or San Francisco is probably a lot further than 45 minutes north of PV. They like to seriously under estimate the travel time everywhere. It is north of Sayulita which is at least 45 minutes north of PV. I have been told it is a quaint fishing village (aka very small town). It will be perfect if that is what you want. If you or your guest will want a town with lots of clubs, resturants, and other amenities this may not be the best location. I don't want to scare you off because I have heard great things about San Pancho and really want to visit there on my next trip to the PV area.

     

    Also, if your wedding is in the hot season May-Oct, you might want to consider finding some place with air conditioning. Trade winds can not be guaranteed to be constant and it gets awfully warm during those months even directly on the coast. It is not pleasant getting ready for your wedding while dripping in sweat. The door to my bathroom was closed the day of my wedding so my bathroom was very warm even though it was ocean front. We had a problem with our a/c one night and I don't think I could have spent another night without a/c. I would have had to go find a hotel room. It was miserable.

      I just booked my villa! We are getting married in Sayulita (north of PV) hopefully on the beach and then we will have our reception at our villa. It's called Casa Vela www.velasayulita.com.

        I´m also gettng married at a private villa called Casa Perla in Cancun!

         

         

        The villa is a great choice as it has six of us put for all our stay and are celebrating the ceremony there.

        There is a Wedding fee and the extras would be hiring the setup for reception, and that is it, as all the rest, you also pay in the hotels!

        But privacy pays, this time for us!


        Nan and Erik forever!!!

          adcarter41...what a small world! I am in the process of selecting whether to book my small wedding at Casa Vela or Villa Amor in Sayulita. Have you had your wedding at Vela yet? It looks beautiful but I'm rather torn...would love to hear from someone who has already had the experience.

            We're getting married at Villa Encanto in Bucerias www.villaencantomexico.com. It's an adorable 7 bedroom villa on the beach. We knew from the very beginning that a hotel and ballroom were never going to work for us.

              Can't wait to hear your feed back on Villa Encanto. I just got my quote today and I think this is the one I'm going to book.

               

              However it is only 5 bedrooms - it has 7 beds though (2 day beds in a common area).

                jmred,

                 

                Villa Encanto is awesome. We are friends with one of the owners and have stayed there before.  There are only five bedrooms in the main house, but they also have a media room downstairs with a couch that pulls out into a bed and a two bedroom guest house behind the pool so it actually sleeps 16. You may want to ask about these options and what the price adjustment would be. My only suggestion is that you may want to work with a local planner to save yourself the headache that goes along with all of the extra details of a villa wedding in Mexico. Depending on your number of guests you may be able to rent your place settings and glassware directly from the villa and have Maria cater for you. She is an amazing cook. The villa is also very close the The Royal Decameron, an all inclusive resort; The Four Seasons and a few other smaller hotels if you have guests that are not staying with you but would like to be close. The Daxxling Details has done several weddings there and if you search their blog you can see some great pictures. They've even put dance floors on the beach to maximize space.  Let me know if you have any questions. I also have photos of our last stay there.

                  Thank you!

                   

                  I'd love to see your photos...it would be a big help. I doubt we'll be doing a site visit so I would be nice to see some photos of the villa. Thank you :)

                    Oh yeah,

                     

                    I heard Villa Encanto has some electrical issues - especially given all the power needed for vendors? Is this true - did you have any problems at all?

                      No electrical problems what so ever. They actually updated their wiring the day we left. It's an amazing place right on the beach. If you'd like I can put you in touch with Greg who runs the villa and he can answer any questions you have.
