    Welcome!!! Like I just told another Newbie - do a search for some of the site and wedding day review threads that were posted by other brides. You may get some ideas or narrow your search a bit. Good luck and let us know what we can do to help.

              Wow, I can't believe how friendly of a welcome this is. After I posted, I started reading some of the other threads to get more info on WCs and locations. Thanks for all of your warm wishes and suggestions already.

              I'm really leaning towards somewhere in PV. It sounds like Cabo might be too expensive (for us and our guests). Part of the reason we are doing a DW is because we wanted to lower the cost of the wedding and the number of guests that would actually make it--not to mention I wanted a beautiful local and only semi-formal. I'm from the Washington DC metro area and weddings in this area easily cost $20K and up just for a small affair.

              We want to try to keep everything to less than $12K and I think we will only have between 25-45 people actually make it down to Mexico.

              Anyone have any recommendations for wedding planners in PV that you've used (and are priced less than $1500)?

                I live in DC too! Cabo is a longer trip for people on the eat coast too. We had most of our guests from the west/west coast so that is why we chose it, but it's not exactly close to DC :)

                  What sort of wedding do you want? How many guests will you have?

                    you might want to check Puerto Vallarta Weddings, Event Planning and Catering Services and look at the site Casa China Blanca. My girlfriend had her wedding there and it was truly amazing.
