Hi! I'm new to the forum and after going back and forth about locations (considered DR and Jamaica) I have fallen in love with Sayulita Mexico. I've never been there but it seems perfect for what we are looking for in a wedding location (we aren't into the big resorts).

Is anyone else planning a wedding there or been there? I would love any info on ceremony/reception locations, coordinators, etc.

Thanks!

Hi there!

I'm doing a wedding in San Pancho, which is just 15min north of Sayulita. We decided to do San Pancho after finding the ceremony/reception place, not the other way around, so I don't know much about other locations. We're using Bungalows Lydia. I know in Sayulita, Don Pedro's palapa is very popular and there are a lot of villas. 

As for coordinators, I contacted a bunch of them and got preliminary budgets. We were going to go with Kerry Moeller of Sayulita Wave because she charged the lowest fee and I wanted to do most of the planning anyway, but then there were long periods where she kind of dropped the ball on communication when we really needed to get in touch with her. Apparently her daughter had medical issues and she was going on vacation....so bad luck for us? I heard great things about Yazmin Gizeh of Sea of Dreams. Priscilla of Prisarvallarta.com gave us the best deals for all the items on our budget. Mishka of Mishka Designs is a bit pricier, but she's also a designer and can make your wedding personalized and incredible. Those were the main planners I contacted who are local to that area. Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for the info! We are leaning towards Don Pedros's right now. I contacted about 7 coordinators and Kerry Moeller was one that never responded to my inquiry. Yazmin got back to me quickly but her fee was almost double what Marweddings and Sayulita Weddings quoted me for a group of about 30. I hadn't heard of Priscilla though- have to check her out. It seems like the negative I hear about most of the coordinators in the area is that they are very slow to get back to you- especially once you have signed a contract. So I guess I'm just preparing myself for that.

Have you looked into DJ's yet? That's one thing I'm worried about.

BTW, San Pancho seems like a great place to get married. We considered doing our wedding there too. I'm sure yours will be amazing!

Hi girls... I got married at Playa Fiesta in Puerto Vallarta. But I used Mishka from Mishka Designs for customized maracas, placecards, menus and she was fabulous to work with! And she gets back in a timely manner... especially for down there. That, to me, is invaluable when planning a DW. Good luck with planning! We are going to Sayulita in March for the first time and cannot wait!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
