If you have ANY questions about the resort (Marival Resort & Suites) 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!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
