Deciding between the resorts for a wedding or honeymoon? How many guests are you looking at having?

    Hi Raeka,
    We are trying to pick a wedding location. It seems like Buenaventura and Riu Jalisco have so many pros and cons. Just not sure. What would you recommend?

    I would recommend the Jalisco hands down over the Buenaventura. The Jalisco is 10 times the size of the Buenaventura. But that is my opinion, I'm not sure what you're totally looking for in a venue.

      Hi Raeka,

      I'm also looking at doing my wedding at the Jalisco. I took a look at your pics, which btw are stunning! I was wondering, is the gazebo the only other alternative to not doing it on the beach? I wanted a gazebo setting and its a little difficult to see what the set up would be like. For example, where would the guests be seated? on either side? I'm so confused. haha. Please help. Thanks!

      Yes unfortunately the beach is the only other option the Jalisco offers besides the Gazebo. They have a beautiful garden which I tried so hard to use but management said no.

      We sat 30 guests seated INSIDE the gazebo with us and about 10 people stood behind the chairs. We also had people sitting outside of the gazebo who had a great view as well. Theres a speaker system so there's no trouble with not hearing the vows and music.

        Thanks for the input on the gazebo.

        Just one other quick question...what restaurant did you have your reception at? was it outdoors?

        we had our reception dinner at the Brazillian Nayarit restaurant in doors. It was a greta meal - just a little rushed. We had our welcome dinner at the restaurant along the beach outside. Sorry i can't remember the name.

          Hi Raeka,

          Thanks again for the AWESOME review. I just sent an email to Tammy at Wright Travel to see if she can help get my reservations set up and can coordinate the travel for our guests.

          Thank you!

              Thank you for posting your wedding and critique, it is extremely helpful to those of us still planning! Your wedding was beautiful

              We are getting married on February 4, 2009 at the Riu Jalisco. I had a couple questions for anyone who may know the answers

              1. We wanted our ceremony on the beach and I was wondering if there were options for the type of "covering" for ministers table and our wedding party. I was hoping for more than just a couple palm fronds, more like white fabric and a little more substance

              2. We really want a string trio/quartet and I have seen on another site that it was an option in PV, but I wanted to be sure we could really get that as I have my heart set on it =)

              3. Was your cake easy to choose, meaning a number of options?

              Thank you so much for any information you can provide
