Hello! WC or Not?

Recommended Posts

My name is Martha, and plan to get married in Puerto Vallarta next May, hopefully at a villa. We hope to finalize our date this week, and hence begins the planning!

 

I am curious if any out there getting married in Puerto Vallarta at a villa is choosing not to use a WC? I do not intend to use one, so curious if anyone else out there is that adventurous?

Congratulations on your engagement! Welcome to the forum.

 

If you are super detail oriented and speak spanish, I say go for it. However, I knew I would be too stressed doing that so that's why I decided on my location, Playa Fiesta b/c it's small like a villa but has a WC and all the details already figured out.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

Congratulations Martha,

 

I'm not using a WC but I have a very small wedding party. Depending on what your situation is it might be easier to do it yourself but if you have a big group or lots of special requests it might help to work with someone more local. Check some of the wedding reviews for your resorts and that might help you get some ideas.

 

Happy planning!

As a wedding photographer, I photograph a lot of weddings with and without a WC. I have to say that there are benefits to having a wedding coordinator that if you have the money to spend, it's really worth it.

 

Basically if anything goes wrong on your day, like your sister forgot her shoes at the hotel, or the dj can't find your first song, or a whole group of your guests are late to the ceremony, and there is an un-ended amount of things that can go wrong, people will be coming to you for the answers on what to do.

 

What a "good" wedding coordinator does, is take care of those things for you. So that you get to enjoy your time with your bridesmaids or family before the ceremony, and so that you get to enjoy your reception too. No matter how much planning that you do, or organization, something is bound to come-up on the wedding day that will require your attention. For example, my sister had a really nice wedding, but didn't go with a coordinator, and there was a problem with the lighting that she had to deal with right before the ceremony. Do you really want to be thinking about how to solve an electrical problem on your wedding day? If you hire a coordinator, that's what they do, is solve that problem for you so that you're not.

 

All that said, if you have good vendors, perhaps a dj that is really good with keeping your reception on time, or a photographer that will create a flexible day of timeline for you, and a friend or family member that will be that go to person for you, you can have a wedding without a WC.

 

Good luck!

Congrats and Welcome!!

 

If you have $ in the budget- get a planner. It will take a lot of pressure off of you. You can share your ideas and have someone else work to execute them. Good Luck!!
