Since we won't be doing a site visit, I asked Blanca about this option and she told me that if we wanted to do that, he would have to be picked up at Boca de Tomatlan, which is 30 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta and we are staying in Nuevo Vallarta, so almost an hour drive! Did anyone else that had the groom come over early get that same information? Was that drive worth it?
Makes me wonder if the groom should just come over with the guests and we will take all of our pictures after the ceremony, which I really don't want to do!
Thanks for any info!
I can't speak from experience but after reading through this thread and speaking to Blanca about this, it's seems that it is the only way for the groom to come over early (he would come with the adventure weddings staff). That is unless he came over with you in the morning. That would definitely be an expensive cab ride though. Maybe his groomsmen could come with him, so the ride wouldn't seem as long. Keep in mind that they have to pay for the boat ride also...I think it is $30/person? I could be wrong though--just a guess.
I'm having the same issue with daylight as we are getting married in November...but we have decided to keep the tradition and wait until the ceremony to see each other. (One of the only things that is traditional about our wedding! LOL) There will only be about 10-15 mins of day light after the ceremony, so keep that in mind. Are you doing a trash the dress session? Maybe those could serve as your beach pictures. I know it's a tough decision...good luck!
