Hi everyone!! I'm a brandie-newbie to this site and LOVE it so far, but I'm trying to find locations for a garden wedding and simply haven't narrowed it down to "the one" yet. Would really appreciate any advice I can get!!!
So the wedding is slated for the first weekend of June 2012, and I have a couple of concerns:
1.) I don't really want to do this thing on the sand. (I know, I know....I'm nuts) If we do it on the beach, we definitely want to rent a tent, which I assume will be expensive. But this still just isn't the way that we really want to go.
2.) I really, really want the actual ceremony to have a garden-esque feeling, feet on the grass, hopefully some shade for the bridal party and guests. It's just going to be so hot in June, and I'm from Texas so I totally get the heat and humidity. Not a fan.
Since FI can't get off work anytime soon, my mom and I are heading down to good ol' PV/NV for a few days at the end of July to scout out some places. So far, at the top of my list are: Dreams VillaMagna, Dreams PV, and Las Caletas (don't know if a garden thing at LC is possible??). Budget is relatively limited, so a private villa is pretty much out the window (I think.) I absolutely DREAD the thought of having to use an outside wedding coordinator / planner, that is why Dreams and Las Caletas both appeal to me, kind of all-part-of-the-package places.
Anyway! We have 4 days there and I'm just wondering, does anyone have experience with having a wedding that was kind of garden-ish? Something not on the sand? And if so, do you have any recommendations of places / AI resorts that I haven't thought of yet?
ANYYYY advice would be so helpful. I'm 1000% overwhelmed right now. It gets better right???
Yall have a great week! Thanks so much!
