    We were planning for an August wedding in Puerto Vallarta or Sayulita. We were getting really excited, but the more we read, the more we hear about the rainy season. Are we crazy to still want to do it? We really can't move the date up or back any more. Any advice?

      Just find an amazing rain friendly location. I have seen some really beautiful pictures of weddings with rain falling around them. It was really romantic. And the rain let up right at sunset and it was the most beautiful colors because of the rain clouds in the area. And don't forget, it can rain any day of any season.

      Also, you will have the pick of the litter at that time because it is the off season. That means cheaper rates and more negotiating power. This August, a lot of the villas had huge discounts including free days. Your guests will enjoy the discounted rates.

      I think there is a big palapa up in the Sayulita or Buceries areas that hold a lot of weddings. If I come across it again I will give you more info. You can probably rent out a great beach front resturant or ball room for a great deal at that time of the year. I think it is a little warm in August so something with air conditioning might be a good idea.

        I hear that August is REALLY humid and yes there is a huge chance it will rain. If you can move you date I would try to push it to September. If you cant move your date just be sure to warn your guests about the humidity, make sure you have bug spray/wipes in the welcome bags. I know someone who planned an event in islands during rainy season, what she did was have her ceremony in and am, around 11:00 so that she and the bridal party wasn't dieing in the heat and she wasn't sweating in her dress. She then provided a nice breakfast, they took some picks and then spent the rest of the day hanging on the beach and then had a great party at night. She and her guests were able to dress more comfortably for the party and just focus on having a good time. That could be an option?
        So far 68 RSVP's and 56 people are booked to stay at the resort!
