I know we have been getting rediculous quotes as well, which is why I am deciding on whether to use a travel agent or not at all. I have been reviewing prices for dreams PV for over a year now and I have a pretty good idea of what the prices should be (between $1500-$1700 per person for a deluxe room, in Feb since it is high season), So when I get quotes for over $2000, I have to wonder how accurate that is. I think because it is so far out they just give you any old number and then once all the companies come out with prices it forces them to become competitive and the prices drop. Atleast this is what I am hoping for.
That's awesome that you know people in the business, Dazzling details works with Plush sometimes, their work is amazing. It was a toss up between Dazzling Details and Mishka, but I had fallen in love with Dazzling Details before I had come across Mishka and I just think my mind was already set on them.
I am going to the Bridal Center in March, haven't been there yet but my sister got her dress there and loved it.
I haven't been to Puerto Vallarta before. I have been to the Mayan 4 times and we wanted something we knew but also a different location then we'd been to. I just did some research and the reviews speak wonders. I like the idea of smaller resorts better. I have been to both large and small resorts and I didn't like having to walk a mile to get from your room to the beach at the large resorts. I am hoping that I made the right decision as we won't be able to do a site visit.
We don't start planning until the spring time with DD, I can't wait to start!! So excited!!

We've been looking at Dreams Villamagna, however the one travel agent I spoke to claimed it was going to be about $2,000/ person - which seemed bizarrely expensive for "off-season", especially when Expedia is saying about $1,100 a person for this May. I am also determined to use WestJet as I've had terrible experiences with Air Transat and SunWing in the past.
A friend of mine from Calgary works in PV as a event coordinator - her name is Blaire, she used to work for Playa Fiesta and now is with Plush Catering and Events, so she has offered to do all of the coordination pieces for us and I am hoping to make my budget work to hire Mishka for the design, I just absolutely love her work. For the actual wedding location right now we are torn between Terra Noble Spa, the Martoca Beach Garden or perhaps something in Sayulita if we can make it work.
I bought my dress this weekend at the Bridal Centre and despite hearing some terrible reviews from friends I was quite impressed. Lets just hope my dress arrives in one piece!
Have you been to Dreams in Puerto Vallarta before? or are you planning to do a site visit before next Feb? We've been considering this hotel as another option as well.
