New December 2012 Bride

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,


This website was suggested to me recently so I thought I'd check it out! My fiance and I are looking to have our wedding in Mexico, preferably on the West Coast. We have December 8, 2012 reserved at the Riu Emerald Bay Resort in Mazatlan, but have been reading and hearing from guests that the food quality has gone downhill in recent months. As well, a few aspects of the wedding ceremony were not very appealing, for example the distance from the resort to the wedding ceremony site was very far and would involve our guests and us to cross volleyball courts and a big part of the beach before arriving at the alter! For these reasons, we started looking seriously at the Dreams Resort in Villamanga Nuevo Vallarta. We've read reviews that the food is amazing and the wedding packages suit our needs more than the ones at the Riu. I know it's almost March, so we need to make up our minds quickly!


Looking forward to getting tips, advice, and checking out destination wedding 2012 trends!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
