    AAAHHH! I just sent Prisar an email for a quote! Hans is going to kill me! I really thought I could plan myself, but i just noticed she posted another wedding and it looked so nice!

    I let her know that we had already booked the location, band and photographer, so hopefully she'll give us a good deal.. ( I can dream right!)

      AAAHHHH here too! lol

      I just sent them a request for more info. Hopefully we will get to meet them in December! :)

      Christine, thanks for the tips! And yes you are our first Mayan Palace bride (thus why you're having so many questions fired at you ). Thanks for being so helpful!

      We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

I chose the Mayan because Priscilla really impressed upon me that it was exactly what I was looking for. When I got to PV and saw the Mayan I knew she was right. I have recommended the Mayan to so many girls now. They and myself have Priscilla to thank for it. As far as I know no one else has gotten married at the Mayan yet on the forums, so I think I was the first? I wouldn't have ever heard about the Mayan if it werent for Priscilla, and I found her on a mexican wedding site equivalent to theknot.com.

        The Westin is really beautiful too but the Westin is not appropriate for a small wedding like mine. I went to a gorgeous wedding that Prisar did at the Westin on the patio, but there were about 150 people there and the space seemed awfully big for that amount of people. The Westin's spaces are better for large weddings. They dont have any intimate spaces. The Mayan can accomodate both small and large weddings. I havent posted any pics/video yet. I used the same company for photography and videography and the pics are finished but my husband and I just finished choosing our wedding video songs so we should be getting it all together shortly.


        JaimeLynne- I chose to use an outside WC for several reasons. First, I have seen weddings that Marco did by himself and I was not very impressed. Secondly, Priscilla ended up planning not just my wedding but two welcome parties and a brunch, which were all great. In the end she also saved me an unbelieveable amount of money. She took care of details like champagne being delivered to my bridal suite, getting my hair extensions done at a great place, driving me all over to appointments when neccessary, getting me special gifts for my guests, and being the contact go-to person for my guests in Vallarta when they needed something. She would have done the welcome bags too if I didnt want to do them myself, and Im leaving out a ton of other details I cant even think of or list them all now. An in-house planner wont do those things for you. Priscilla and Hector even recommended the cool after hours clubs to our group so we didnt end up at the cheesy tourist PV nightlife places. They really formed our wedding experience into something spectacular. I would definitely hire them again!!


        thank ou very much Christine!!! I am so glad I am using Prisar too, with your comments I feel much much better and happy!!!!

            Christine, you don't have to answer if you are not comfortable, however I am curious, how much were your centerpeices? I'm trying to gage myself and I have no clue how much they are in PV.

            Thanks!

                  Have you guys looked into this any further? Do you think you will hire them as an outside WC or just stick with Marco?

                    I think I'll stick with Marco. I can't justify the $2000. I've found so many vendors myself that I think we can handle it. I mean, I already booked our band, photog, location. We've been in contact with the Church, I have vendor contacts for the beach lounge, all I need are flowers, lol! And Ann posted the florist she used and I loved her flowers. Plus my cousin in Mexico is helping me out with this too.

                    So, I decided to email prisar and said thanks, but no thanks.
