    so... i'm on fall break from school, which means being completely and utterly lazy. i've spent most of the day in bed with my mom in our pj's, sweet tea in hand and surrounded by junk food - ah, this is the good life. we've almost literally been on the internet all day looking at wedding venues. my #1 option right now is playa fiesta in puerto vallarta. the owner has my name and dates down for a tentative booking, but FI wants some options. he's not quite as impulsive as me (which is probably a good thing). as we began looking we saw resort after huge resort and i just couldn't see myself marrying there. i have nothing against resorts - that works perfectly for most DW brides. i just want something more intimate. something special and private... just for us. AND THEN... i came across my very first mexican villa. love at first site. they are all so beautiful and perfect and i'm definitely lusting. while i love pf, i have some worries... in fact, some pretty significant worries. pf is still a major contender, but my little lusty heart wants a villa! i've emailed about a billion companies and i'm hoping i'll have some answers tomorrow, so i guess we'll see how doable this is tomorrow.

    sorry for the novel, i just wanted to share my new obsession. ALSO, if anyone got married in a villa in mexico or elsewhere, i'd LOVE to hear about it. you can PM me or just leave a comment.

    eeeeee.. i'm so excited about getting married!!!

      I can't help with the villa situation, but I am so happy that you found what you would love for your wedding venue. You are so right about the different things that work for different brides. There are many different options out there for wedding venues, and that is evidenced here on this site. Hope you get some great answers from the different places tomorrow!

        i was interested in the idea of a villa, but our families really wanted an all-inclusive resort, and our guest list (or at least the number we *thought* would be coming) was a little too large for a villa. turns out we might have been able to get away with it after all!

        if a resort just isn't your thing for the wedding, have you looked at las caletas? there are a lot of brides on here who went that route and i think it's beautiful and more private/intimate than the huge resorts.

        choose what suits you! obsessions are ok!

              I'm not getting married at a villa, but I am betting married at Playa Fiesta! I just met with Lindsay in San Francisco last week and she is awesome. I can't wait for my wedding at PF, but villas are a wonderful option as well. If you are looking in PV, make sure to call Jennifer at Casa Bay Villas and Kristin at Dazzling Details. They are both great. Good Luck!!!
