Hi from excited PV bride

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to the forum. My name is Kris and we are planning a wedding in Puerto Vallarta for May 2011. I'm originally from the Chicago area but currently live in Perth, Australia because my fiance is from here. So we opted to have our wedding closer to my family because of little neices and nephews. We are still in the process of finalizing our date, but we've finally decided to book a private casa (Casa Angela-please let me know if anyone here has anything to say about it) where both our intermediate families will stay and we'll have the reception. We are planning to have the ceremony on a nearby beach in the Conchas Chinas area.


I'm trying to figure out the best photographer and florist-our wedding is going to be pretty small (30ish), so I wasn't planning on hiring a wedding coordinator so that I could use that money to go towards other things-I'm just hoping I can find all the information I need on my own.


If anyone has any advice/tips for getting married in that area please let me know! I would really appreciate it :)

Hi Kris, congratulations & welcome to the forum! I'm originally from Chicago & am getting married in PV too! I don't have any info about Casa Angela, but PV is beautiful! It'll be gorgeous no matter where you have it!


For a photographer I have to recommend Fer Juaristi. He is absolutely amazing & I can't wait to have him shoot our wedding & trash-the-dress session the next day! I know Heather & a couple other girls on the forum used him too and had nothing but rave reviews.

Here's his website

Good luck planning & definitely check out the PV sub-forum!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
