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!

    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
    • Hi Oleg. Thank you for such a cool app. I advise you to add an item there: ftara weddings | toronto wedding photographer. It would help me a lot. I myself recently came to Canada and it was difficult to find good photographers. It would be much easier with your application.
