Playa Fiesta Weddings

Recommended Posts

Just emailed Blaire!!! I thought maybe I was taking it a bittttttt overboard with the planning a whole two years in advance (even tho FI asked me to figure it all out so we can give everyone a year or so headsup). So I just thought maybe it was too soon but this is why I love this site! Alllllll of the helpful info!

Hi Kristy,

 

Welcome to the PF message board! Don't feel bad about contacting PF if your wedding is 2 years away... we were in the same boat & booked PF in November 2009 for December 2011! Even though we are over 1.5 years out now, Lindsay, Adam & Blaire have already got the wheels rolling & it feels great that we have so much done already! And as you can already see, the ladies on here are AWESOME and offer invaluable help & insight on your PF wedding! Happy planning!!

 

Vanessa

Awesome!!! Let us know how it goes. It's never to early to at least pay a visit and meet the Playa Fiesta crew. wink.gif I have to warn you, though, you'll probably be hooked once you get there!

Thanks so much for the welcome Vanessa & Mel!

 

Did either of you do a site visit? What did it consist of? We are staying at the Velas (casa velas & velas vallarta) so we won't be spending the night there.

I didn't do a site visit, but I think it would consist of a tour, food tasting, a drink at the bar, meeting Adam and Lindsay... I think it would be fun! I'm not exactly sure of all the details...

Congrats Magalie!!!

Hi Kristy,

 

We have not yet done a site visit - we'd love to go but I feel like we should forgo the visit and instead put that money down towards the wedding since we already signed the contract! If you're able to go though, I would definitely do it! Couldn't hurt, right?

 

We just felt really comfortable with all of the reviews & the information the girls on this message board gave so we had no qualms about signing a contact before seeing the actual place. So far we've been really pleased with working with the PF crew!

 

Good luck!

Congrats Magalie!!!! Hope you are having an amazing time!

 

Kristy, we didn't do a site visit either. When we were there for our anniversary this year there were a few couples doing a site visit. It mainly consists of a food tasting lunch with Adam and Lindsay. You have a chance to visit with them, taste the food, ask questions, etc. 2 of the couples actually stayed at the hotel so they got a good idea of what to expect as well. If other rooms are unoccupied, they'll open them for you as well.

Hi ladies!

 

We just got back last night, we were so sad to leave! It was amazing, 1000 times better than expected and worth every stress and added expense. It was perfect, and even better than that. It's soooo worth it! Everyone had an amazing time.

 

I will try to post a review soon. Pro shots should start coming in about two weeks from now.

 

I got to meet Kodi & Sara, it was really nice! Sara and her mom were the only other people staying in the hotel while we were there, we got super lucky. We did a 15-room booking and had the whole hotel to ourselves!

 

I went through the posts that I missed while I was gone, so a big hello to the new ladies on here! I totally get your stress and concerns, but trust that in the end it all works out. We did not do a site visit and we did not regret it - in fact it really wasn't necessary. It's better than the photos. The food really is that great. The reviews don't lie! We did a 15-room booking, and I think that Adam said that we were the first ever to do so. We ended up having to pay for half of the total room cost to make sure that friends could attend, but it was $ worth spending. The room booking was the most stressful part of it all, but it was worth the stress. Good luck in your planning!

Ahhh Magalie! I am SO happy to hear everything you just said! I am SO anticipating your photos!

 

We are also thinking about doing the 15 room booking so hearing that you did it and it all worked out is great! I'll save other questions until I read your review!

 

I bet you were a beautiful bride. =) Congratulations!!

    • 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?
