I would start by looking at their wedding locations at each of those resorts and see if any of them is THE place you want to get married.  Also, I would make a list of what you want from the resort you stay at (ie.luxurious rooms, spa discounts, lots of activities, intimate atmosphere, comp. wedding, beautiful beach, etc.). That should help you narrow them down one by one.. hopefully :) good luck and happy planning!!!

If you have ANY questions about the resort or the wedding please let me know.  My sister in law was married there in August of 2009 and it was a wonderful event.  I am planning my wedding in Mexico for this August and am jealous we will not be able to go back to the same resort (we just don't want everyone to have to go back to the same resort 2 times in a row).  So, we chose to be married at another place and the wedding packages are not NEAR as inclusive as what the Marival was.  Most other resorts put a cap on how many people you can have for your dinner, toast, and cake.  Marival did not. 


The only thing I can say was slightly disappointing was the ceremony.  It was done by a Spanish speaking judge and one of the wedding coordinators translated.  But, it was just kindof strange because she was translating while the judge was still talking.  I know you have to be married by a judge legally but I would suggest maybe having the ceremony done by an enlglish speaking minister if you want an intimate/personal ceremony and not just a judge talking about the legality of it. 


Her pictures were awesome also!  The photographer did alot of them on the resort and several on the beach. 


The dinner seemed like a full blown reception dinner with a head table, decorations, a cake table.  We did it in the Italian restaurant and the food was wonderful.  We were in a semi private are but truthfully we had 50 people and I don't ever remember any other people around.  We all went to the bar after and had a few drinks.  The entire day was wonderful.  It seemed like they paid alot of money for a ceremony/reception and they did not because the resort offers it free if so many people book in the hotel.   


If you have kids, I did not see very much for them to do.  When we were there they did not have a full blown kids area with slides and pools and fun stuff for them.  We didn't have any kids so it wasn't that big of a deal.  But since there was no place for the kids to be they were always around the alcohol swim up bar (only one of the swim up bars serves alcohol FYI).  It wasnt that nig of a deal but if you want to get away from kids this is not the resort to do it. 


The beach was decent.  It's puerto vallarta so you can't expect the water to be clear or the sand to be white.  But, it was still a gorgeous beach even without the white sand and clear water. 


Like I said feel free to msg me or email me if you have any questions.  I know how it is to be booking a resort and not know how the wedding is going to turn out!  Happy planning!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
