Hotel Casa Velas??

Recommended Posts

Is anyone getting married at Casa Velas? It's a beautiful property. Would love to see pictures of past events that have taken place there.

I originally looked into it - I think it is adults only so that may be something to consider if you have any children at your wedding. It is a beautiful property - all the Velas in Vallarta are.

Just wanted to bump this up. I would love to see another brides pictures of a wedding tat Casa Velas. Also, is anyone concerned about safety for guests who are going to party at the clubs in town? In the past I have had a great time going out in PV at night but lately I have been hearing scary stories about shady situations at night clubs (counterfeit money being passed around, credit card number theft, robberies etc..). I dont want to worry about any of my guests getting robbed or worse trying to get a cab back to the hotel late a night.

No. Your question doesn't have to do with Casa Velas, but PV in general. Puerto Vallarta is amazing. If you are scared, please think hard about having a DW. It might cause you a lot of stress.

Sorry! I thing my post sounded a little harsh. I think I should explain. There's a lot of bad press about Mexico right now, so if you decide to have a DW in Mexico, you'll have to be prepared to defend your decision to a lot of your guests that may not understand it. You'll have to be your weddings biggest cheerleader!!! So if you are really worried about traveling to Mexico, your guests will be too.

However, this is the right place to get all of the info you need. smile03.gif

Thanks for explaining Mel&B. :)

 

Edna, those pictures look GREAT! Thanks for sending them. My future husband and i discussed everything last night and we have decided to move forward with Casa Velas and plan our wedding for April. The staff has been incredibly friendly and when we visited the property in Feb we fell in love with it so we are VERY excited!

Hi Andi,

The ceremony will be in the atrium area of Casa Velas, the cocktail hour will be by the pool and the reception will be at the private beach club. I am soooo excited! :) We have hired Incredible Weddings for the event design and planning and so far things have been really easy. I am hiring Paulina for photography. I am a little worried about the cost of rooms for my guests but Im sure it will all work out. Velas Vallarta is right there and the marriott is across the street.

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
