    Hi Ladies,

    We're in the very early stages in planning our wedding. 11-02-07 is the date of choice.

    Any positive/negative details any of you can provide on the Westin or Dreams would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    Warmest Regards,
    Erika

      While i have never been to either location when I was planning I looked at both. Easily said your decision will come down to price. If you are footing the bill for more than the reception then an AI is the way to go. The Westin looked beautiful online and was remodeled recently (room decor) but the catering/ bar charges were a bit steep for us. We wanted a group meal each day. Keep that in mind. Other than that I haven't heard bad things about either.

      I think the Westin has the cool peninsula to have a ceremony on

        Thanks for your feedback. I have gathered pricing on the Westin, but I'm still waiting to hear back from Dreams to compare.

        a coworker i know just got married at dreams in nuevo and said it was fantastic. there is a private beach to have your ceremony or reception.

        also, it is a pretty good deal (about $225 per night).

        westin is also a good deal (about $190-195) per night but not AI.

        i guess you really need to figure out what the best situation for your group is in terms of what you want out of your wedding and what your budget it. if you are on a tighter budget AI's are easier.

            Welcome Erika! I'm a PV bride too. Hopefully we can share info here on the fourm. Well I love the Westin sets their receptions on the beach, i.e. the table set up inside of the cabanas. However I love where Dreams is situated. Its more private and you have the backdrop of the mountain/ jungle (not the right term but you know what I mean.)

            If you haven't already checked, these sites have pictures of both places

                  Welcome, Erika! You will definitely find this site helpful, not only for planning your wedding, but also just for keeping you sane! It's great just to bounce an idea around, or vent about anything!

                  I am getting married in PV as well, but not at a resort. I've just begun looking at resorts to stay at and hold my welcome dinner. I'll be sure to post any information I find! I haven't stayed there personally, but a friend has stayed at the Westin and loved it.

                  Happy planning!
