    Hello I am new and trying to plan a wedding before July. I know, crazy, but if it doesn't work out we are open for doing something in 2010. But if it does work out great.

    I have read so many different opinions on Dreams Resort, Villa Premiere and Nueva Vallarta, was wondering if anyone could lead me in a particular direction.

    I have just stared the process, but after reading posts on this site I am also concidering a villa wedding.

    My wedding will, or so I think, be around 80 guests. I don't have a lot of time if I can pull it off this year so I am thinking about wedding coordinators any suggestions out there.

    For a bride just starting the process any information would be so very helpfull. You all seem to have a good handle on things.

    Wish me luck


    PS step one is getting my wedding website up:)

      It is possible if you are flexible on the date/day of the week. Details in Mexico are easy, it is reigning in the family and at home details like dress, invites and travel that are the challenge.
      Do you have a budget or vision in mind?
      We are really happy with our Playa Fiesta wedding. Check out the website and let me know if you would like more info on that. Other ideas are Le Kliff, Las Caletas or one of the mega resorts. Im sure the other girls will chime in but the more info you post the better!

        I think you could pull it off! Have you found a WC yet? I am working with Vallarta Wedd Planners Puerto Vallarta Wedding Planners - Beach Wedding Planners in Puerto Vallarta I am working with Johanna. They have been great. They also do a lot of weddings at Villas. Johanna has been very helpful and is not push at all. I don't think anyone on here has used them. But so far I am very happy with their services. She is quick to reply to my emails. There are so many locations in PV. Good luck
        WE ARE MARRIED!!

          Hi Klila,

          We have shot a lot of weddings in Puerto Vallarta and cannot tell you how important it is to find a good wedding planner. That is the ONLY way to maintain your sanity.

          We recommend Kristin from The Dazzling Details. The Dazzling Details

          Let her know that we sent you her way as we have worked together for about four years now.

          Hang in there and enjoy the moment!

            I agree that a WC is well worth it. FYI Playa Fiesta has an awesome wedding coordinator, Lindsay that is originally from San Fran, they own the resort, and she gets back to you within an hour a lot of times. It was really stress free other than being my groups travel agent in the begining!

              Yeah, I agree, the most involved thing is to get all the travel arrangements to your family and get them to book their trip etc. I know there's tons of recommendations for TA's on here, I would definitely recommend contacting them if you haven't already. The wedding website shouldn't take too long if you use one of those templates. Good luck and congrats!

                The most difficult part about planning a destination wedding to meis getting all the travel arrangements together. Other than that the resort will handle most of the arrangements.

                Im getting married at the Riu Vallarta and having a private reception with about 60 guests. Let me know if you want additional information.

                  Congratulations! I bet you will be able to find something pretty quick.

                  I just confirmed my date two weeks ago at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita and they are comping us 2 nights to go down and visit the sight! They assign you a wedding coordinator once you sign the contract and when you go down to visit, you meet with the florist/cateror/hair stylist/photographer/etc. Although you are only required to use their services for food and drinks, they offer these services for you as well.

                  I have already seen so many great ideas from other brides on this site - I am sure you will have no problem!
