Now Amber Resort in Puerto Vallarta Brides

Recommended Posts

Wow! I had not realized it was that much extra per person for dinner! Eek....that seems crazy.

 

has anyone asked where the rain out location is? For the ceremony and the reception?

 

I'm just going to use the photographer in the package. I don't really have any extra money, so I'm crossing my fingers he will be good.

Now Amber was my number one choice for accomodation for my wedding consisting of about 60-70 guests.  I got a quote from my travel agent with some great prices--about $1500 including flights, but i realized afterwards that the quotes they gave me were for April 2013 instead of April 2014...So i went to the NOW amber website to check prices and it appears that the prices almost double from 2013 to 2014!!  Eg. a room for 2 is around $1900 in 2013 and $3400 in 2014!!!  Does anyone know why this is?  If i book over a  year in advance do you think i could still get the 2013 rates? help! :(

We are just starting planning for oct/nov 2014! I definitely want to stay at the Now Amber but am really loving the beach at the Dreams Puerto Vallarta for the actually wedding. I just dont know if logistically it makes any sense. I have been googling like crazy to see wedding pictures at the Now Amber to help me decide!

Hi there!  We have also booked the Now Amber for our Nov 14th wedding.  We are getting married at the gazebo and having our reception on the pool deck area.  We are having around 50 guests so Im thinking about going with the buffet, only $70 dollers extra a head,  and Im hoping for better choices.  I wasn't impressed with the plated options.  What does everyone think of the prices on the decorations?  Is anyone bringing their own?  I am thinking of going with their DJ and dance floor and renting lighting,  but doing my own center pieces etc.  Would love to hear what other people are doing!

I am not sure if this is an appropriate thing to ask, but my fiance and I also fell in love with NOW Amber but the pricing is coming in way too expensive for 2014, so far. How is the pricing for you ladies been for 2013?

Has anyone whose date is coming up soon discussed in more detail some of the extra costs they have? I'm wondering specifically about the dance floor, I e-mailed them and was told the cost for a dance floor is $800 which seems expensive in comparison to other resorts I have been talking to in the area (usually around $300). Has anyone else come across this? We are thinking maybe the dance floor isn't necessary.

lmah - it's just way too early to look for that time frame.  The prices will come down.  

 

Where are you coming from?  All of my guests seemed to be able to go for between 1000-1500 for 6-7 night (this includes flight, hotel based on double occupancy, and all taxes).  We were coming from all over the western USA and from Vancouver.

heidimarie - whaaa??? They only quoted you $70/head per extra person for the buffet?  I'm going with that since we ended up being more than 50 people and Edith quoted me $85...what the heck, am I getting ripped off?

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
