    Hi! I just found this forum on TripAdvisor, so I'm brand new! My wedding is on October 2012 at the Vallarta Palace. Anyone having/had their wedding there? I chose the complimentary package but I'm not sure what to do for my reception yet, I'm having about 30 guests. Any tips?? I don't want to spend a lot of money and the complimentary dinner is only for 25 people! I need help!!!

        Hi Mahga I started with complementary as well, but I changes to sapphire because we are staying 9 days so we got the resort credit and put it towards the wedding , hope this helps. I am expecting 215 people as well.

            Hello ladies! My sister is getting married at Vallarta Palace in October 2012 as well. I'm doing all of the research and planning the whole event for her. I came across this forum and I must say, its really helpful! I've been reading a lot of and noticed that there were a lot of complaints about the Florida office. Surprisingly, I have been getting really quick replies whenever I email them. Anyway, if you don't already know this, the resort offers 1500 credits and that can be used towards the Wedding Collections. Speaking of the Collections, did any of you see the Colin Cowie Collections? I personally don't like any of them and they cost more than the original Collections. If you can share some infos, tips, pictures, etc... PLEASE DO!!! Thank you :]

                We are thinking of changing from Beach Palace to Vallarta Palace, since we live on the west coast, but we have not been to VP so I don't know what to expect. There doesn't seem to be many wedding photos on the site.  I'd love to see some real wedding photos @ VP.  Anybody have any to share? Thanks.  :)

                  I wish you all the luck in the world with that resort. I had no luck at all. It took three months to hear back form anyone affiliated with the resort. My weding planner discovered if we used a US address (we are canadian) the Palace office in Florida would respond. To my disappointment, with not much info. They were willing to take my deposit, but nformed me the planner wouldn't be n touch with me to plan the wedding until 90 days before our wedding!!!! OMG, and thy were going to charge us for drinks at the reception AT AN ALL INCLUSIVE RESORT!!! I have a bad taste left from these guys. If you didn't pay much already or any at all, you may wannna back out! I chose another resort, who has been so amazng and we've been planning since day one! Good luck!

                    Wow!  That's terrible.  We have been to other Palace Resorts to stay and they have been great!  I'm sorry that you had that experience with them.
