Now Amber Resort in Puerto Vallarta Brides

Recommended Posts

I swear I can't find ANYONE who's been/is getting married at Now Amber Resort in Puerto Vallarta.  Is there anyone out there?  

 

I've booked my wedding at Now Amber for May 2013!  Fingers crossed that it's wonderful, but I'd love to hear from someone who has experience.

Hi,

 

We are getting married at Now Amber in november. We can't wait, we have been looking for people who have gotten married, or getting married there. How are you finding the planning going with them? We do know people who have stayed there and they said it was wonderful. We booked the divine package. You will have to let us know how your wedding goes.

Hello, My wedding date at Now Amber is in November also. I have not found much information on previous brides getting married there. I assume the reason is that it is a new resort? I really liked the Now Sapphire but Puerto Vallarta was a much more convenient location so I was happy to see they opened a resort there.

Hello ladies! I'm happy someone started a thread for us :) we are getting married December 5 2013! We have just booked our trip, and I am working on invitations as we speak! Candyb when are you sending out your invitations? I don't think I will send out save the dates. (I'm trying to save money and postage) so we thought we would just send out invitations really early. Thoughts??

We are also booking our destination wedding at Now Amber for June 2013.  Please send updates and how the process is going.  So far working with Edith via email. But so far so good!

Well so far it looks like I'll be the first of us!  I'll make sure to post a follow up after the wedding in May.

 

I haven't been to the resort before, but when we were choosing resorts my parents were in PV so they visited a few and the NOW took their breath away.  They said that if we were having it anywhere it had to be the NOW.  My parents aren't easy to please, so I've got a lot of confidence that it'll be gorgeous.  I've also heard only great things about the food, which is of primary important in my opinion.

 

So far planning with Edith is going well.  She's responsive. I will say I"m a bit disappointed with the menu options - I mean $95/head for a three course meal?  (We're going with the Divine package as well but we'll be adding about 25 extra people). I"m going to try to negotiate to see if I can get a fourth course added for that price (soup, salad, main, dessert).  

 

Right now it looks like we'll plan to do the ceremony under the gazebo thing and the reception on the poolside deck (between the pool and the beach).  

 

Ladies  - has anyone figured out what they are going to do for a photographer?

Hi Ladies,

 

Kykai, we have already sent out our invitations and already have people booking with our travel agent. We figured the sooner the better, so people can have time to save if they need to. We are going to have around 50 people so we are also paying the extra 95 a head. Anything you want to upgrade is definitely going to cost you. We are thinking of getting an outside dj because we found one with pretty good reviews for quite a bit less. As for a photographer we are flying down our own and videographer as well. They will follow us around the whole time we are there taking pictures and video until we ask them to stop lol. They're staying for one week but we are staying for two. We are quite excited, Edith has been pretty good to deal with and usually gets back in a timely fashion.

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
