    Hi girlies. We were almost decided on a locatoin when Joe said he really wanted to consider Puerto Vallarta because he liked it so much the first time. He likes the looks of Dreams but I read the other threads about how the WC sucked. Did you choose other hotels? And if so, which ones?

    Thanks!!

      I'm getting married at Dreams in PV and I am really excited about it. It is a bit hectic getting in touch with her but she does email you within a week. I have sent her several e-mails and she has gotten back to me on all of them. It depends on how laid back you are. To me, I don't really care much for the small details. I will take care of a lot of that once I get down there. Dreams wedding only go till 11 pm but Im sure they will let you hang out by the bar afterward. All the reviews I have read about the weddings there have been really good. They say Marilu goes far and beyond to make it great. It all depends on what you are looking for... I would recommend it.

        would you mind emailing me what info you have on pricing and what not? I'll PM you my email address. I'm glad to hear that things are going well for you. I'm a total planner (and it's my job) but we really want a simple wedding and aren't very concerned with the small stuff. I'd love to hear more. Joe is really gung ho about this resort - the first one he's really been excited about.

        the WC can be a little difficult to get a hold of but i have always heard the weddings go off perfectly...it is the slow communication that can be a pain.

        i think the beach is really beautiful.

        Dreams is gorgeous, this was my first choice but they only have 70 rooms and I'm having close to 70 guests so in fear of being sold out we opted for a larger resort. I love ths resort!!! Good luck Tara!! I can see why your FH likes it so much.

          yikes - sounds like you have a different experience! i emailed her last Mon to finalize some things for my WD at Dreams (wedding is offsite), and just emailed her again to remind her that i need a response. it always takes a couple weeks to get back to me, and usually a gentle reminder from Tammy! and i am so low maintenance, i haven't talked to her for months!

            Didn't have our wedding there, but stayed there and loved the property. I've only heard rave reviews from brides that come back from weddings there.

              I had my date reserved but decided to change venues and went with the Mayan instead. http://bestdestinati...g.com/forum/t34 I LOVE Dreams as a vacation get-a-way, but I always had reservations since they would only allow us to stay untill 11pm. Then trying to get answers from the WC drove me nuts. With that said, if are not into the little details then you should be okay with Dreams. However, if you are, I would def consider contacting an outside WC. I loved Kristin at Puerto Vallarta Wedding Coordinator - Wedding in Puerto Vallarta - The Dazzling Details but I couldn't afford her. But you HAVE to check out her weddings. She has done quite a few at Dreams. Another reason why we opted out was due to the fact that most brides finalize their decisions once they arrive to Dreams (cake, flowers, dinner, location). We are expecting over 150 ppl and there was not way I could that.

              I have to agree with Amanda and Tammy though, I've read a ton of reviews of weddings at Dreams and everyone has been happy with the results.

              this is a video of a wedding at dreams pv

              In the ideal world, I would have Marco (our WC at the Mayan), a wedding until 2am (as we are now) and Dreams as our resort/ wedding location. But a girl can't have it all

                Um WOW. That place looks AMAZING! I noticed in the other thread that you'd be willing to PM pricing info? Still true?
