HI everyone! Newbie from Washington here.

 

I'm getting married in January 2011. I've been researching Puerto Vallarta resorts for about 3 months now, and think that I like Vallarta Palace the best.

 

I've noticed that I can't find a lot of brides on here that have been or are getting married there. Is there something I should know? Is it a cost issue? The resort has really good reviews, and the wedding package seems to be comprehensive. I'd love to find out your reasons for choosing the resort that you chose.

 

And if there are any Vallarta Palace brides out there, please give me your thoughts!

 

Thanks everyone. Have a great Wednesday!

I think it's mostly because it's such a new resort.

 

Have you checked out the RIU PV thread in the PV section? I believe we have at least one former bride from the Palace. It looks gorgeous though!

I had the opportunity to stay at Vallarta Palace two years ago and found the resort to be excellent! We were there in the summertime so it was particularly hot but really enjoyable! The hotel has an on-site coordinator but I did recently hear that they are opening their doors to outside coordinators as well, so that may be something to ask about if you aren't completely satisfied with the service through the hotel! Best wishes!

Tye, I see your getting married at Las Caletas in May of 2011. That's great! I'm also getting married there in June of 2011. Have you heard any further regarding group rates for The Vallarta Palace?

Thanks!

Hi there...I actually got engaged at Vallarta Palace in 2007:) It is absolutely beautiful!

 

We are going back to PV for our wedding, but are actually staying at Dreams and getting married at a beach house south of PV.

 

For us, there were three reasons we didn't pick Vallarta Palace for us and our guests to stay at. One was price (Dreams PV was more affordable for our guests). The second was distance. It is about a 35-40 min drive north of the PV airport and our ceremony will be 1 hour south of PV, so it would be about 90 min to get our guests to the ceremony. The third was that the beach at Dreams is more private and sheltered in a cove, not as many people or vendors on the beach as there were at Vallarta Palace.

 

It is absolutely gorgeous, though. We had no complaints, food was decent, service was AMAZING!. Good luck making your decision. Feel free to PM me if you want to talk more:)

Andi - Thank you for all of your helpful tips for Vallarta Palace.  Besides the Triton Pool Terrace where you had your welcome dinner, do you know of options for reception locations etc?  We'll have over the 25 people so we can't do a sit down dinner (and that's okay with us).  I don't have a WC yet - and won't for another month!  Our date is Feb '11. 

Also, did you upgrade on your transportation from the airport to the resort?

 

Thanks again for all of your GREAT tips!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
