    Hi Everyone,

    I am engaged and working on trying to narrow down the date and location for my wedding for next year. My fiance and I would love to have the wedding in a nice beach location in Mexico that will not leave us in crazy debt. We would love for our wedding to be very classy, laid back and not too intense in regards to the planning involved.

    Do any of you have any suggestions as to where we would consider having our wedding along some beautiful beach in Mexico? Also, the dates when the weather is just right is very important (I would hate to be caught in their storm/rainy season)?

    If you know of any sites that are useful, please pass them along this way!

      Hi Chocolat. I just got married in Cabo at the Cabo Surf hotel. For a non-all-inclusive resort in Mexico it was very reasonable and just beautiful. you can check out some photos here:

      the best advice I've seen is here, actually. there are a ton of brides and vendors here and everyone is extremely helpful.

      good luck & happy planning!

            I'm a Las Caletas bride as well, and it's a great option - something different than a resort wedding if you're looking for that. There are so many great options out there - maybe you can tell us more about what you're looking for, here are some thikngs to think about ...

            1) where all of your guests will be coming from
            2) how big of a group will you have
            3) All Inclusive or not
            4) wedding and ceremony on teh beach, or in a gazebo, or a lawn?
            5) what's your general budget
            6) time of year you're looking to get married (end of June starts the rainy season in Puerto Vallarta, goes until the Fall, maybe Sept, i'd have to check)

            Welcome! Coming from LA, I'd say that your most economical bet would be Cabo. There are plenty of brides that will give you A TON of information! I'm sure you'll find everything you're looking for right here.

                    Congrats on the upcoming wedding! We went to Riviera Maya/Cancun and stayed at Moon Palace. The beach was beautiful and the water... ahh amazing! However if you want a small resort I wouldn't recomment Moon Palace... it's huge. But the service, rooms, food, staff, everything is amazing there!

                    Good luck with the planning!
