    Hello!  :)

     

    We are getting married at the end of April this year! We initially booked our wedding at Dreams Puerto Vallarta, but had to scramble and completely change everything once we found out that Dreams was sold. We are now staying at NOW Amber Puerto Vallarta.

    For our wedding, we have two ceremonies planned: one at the resort, and the other at Las Caletas =)

     

    As a ‘thank you’ to our guests, we were thinking of doing ‘Thank You’ bags (similar idea to ‘Welcome bags’). Wondering if anyone has any tips on items that would be good to include, and also any good places to get these items from in Puerto Vallarta (good quality paired with good price of course!). We will have about 60 people in our group, so would prefer to get most items locally in Mexico.

    * I know that we can get these from the resort, but they tend to be pretty $$, so we're looking into putting these together ourselves. And I think it's also kind of fun to make these more personalized. Some of the items we had in mind:

    - Smaller tequila bottles

    - Mexico themed shot glasses

    - Salsa & chips

    - Mexico themed souvenir bottle of hot sauce

    - Coffee

    - Souvenir coasters

    *** Any other ideas are welcome! =)

     

    We also wanted to put maracas on everyone’s dinner plate as a wedding favor. Has anyone purchased these for their wedding? I know that Las Caletas offers these, but was trying to see if, again, we can save some $ on these, and buy our own. We’re looking to get these shipped to the resort, since we would need them very shortly after our arrival in Mexico and won’t have any time to go get them in person. So, getting these online is probably our best option.

     

    The other thing that we're looking into is bringing our own freeze dried rose petals. There are various websites that these can be ordered from. However, we are trying to figure out whether we are actually allowed to bring these into Mexico. Does anyone have any experience with these??

     

    Any other tips and pointers with wedding and decor items for NOW Amber and Las Caletas are obviously welcome!

    Thanks a bunch in advance =)

      Hi Anya,

       

      Congrats on choosing your plans! I'm getting married at Los Caletas and staying at the Now in 2015 :) I actually don't have an answer for you on your questions, but a question for you - have you heard of any fairly priced photographers in the PV area? Have you chosen yours yet? Everyone I find is either way on the low-end or more pricey than bringing someone from home so just looking for some tips. Thanks and good luck with your flower petal/maraca search, I'm also interested to see what people tell you!

       

      Thanks,
      Ashley

        Hi Ashley!

         

        Congrats to you as well! =))

         

        We actually very recently booked our photographer. We considered various options, and also preferred to get a local PV photographer to save on their travel costs. We looked at the photographer provided by Vallarta Adventures as that's the 'in-house' photograher for Las Caletas and NOW, but after some research felt that Daniel Diaz Photography had more creative photos and similar pricing (we needed them for 3 days, so the weekend package was great value for us).

         

        Daniel is very nice, and has been great to work with so far! And plus, he covers his own travel and accommodations costs in PV.

         

        A link to their packages:

        Good luck with the planning!!

                We're from Toronto. How about you?

                Have you gotten into any of the planning details with Las Caletas?

                Are you bringing any decoration items with you?
