        FYI - they cannot get raffia fans down in LC. Well, they can but they have to get them from freakin' Guadalajara!!

        I'm going with a fan more like this (which will fit much better in my suitcase!):

        I found some like this at World Market for $3.99, but they are teal. Which would actually work out beautifully for me since my color scheme is fuschia, lime green, with a hint of teal. YAY! :)

          I don't mean to sound tacky, but is it really necessary to tip Brad (or whoever the minister will be)?? I mean, Nicole & Kelley do a TON of work and we definitely plan to tip them as well as our budgets will allow (probably $150 for Nicole, $100 for Kelley), but Brad only comes into the picture at the very end. Does anyone know if he makes a decent paycheck off of these weddings? We are just really having to conserve money (like everyone else!) and are trying to think about all these little things that really start to add up. Originally we had thought a $50 tip for him, but is that really necessary? If a tip is necessary, do you think $20-25 would be OK?? I know tipping has already been discussed, but the economy is really changing.

          Thanks girls...

          P.S. Andi your wedding is in DAYS now! OMG I am so excited for you!!!! :)

              He does a great job, but you know what, I didnt tip him at all. He left right after the ceremony and the photographers were all over me and DH and our wedding party, and by the time all that was done, I think he was gone. I didnt think about it again until this thread brought it up! I feel kind of bad. We tipped Nicole, my hair and makeup guys, and my photographers, but never did do anything for Brad.

              We probably should have given him something. I am sure he gets paid by Vallarta Adventures, but something would have been nice of us!

                Hello Ladies!

                I was wondering if anyone here has done or thought of doing a Las Caletas wedding via a Mexican Riviera Cruise. My FI and I really want to take a cruise and get married while in port. Does anyone know if they are flexible with their wedding time schedules?

                Thanks!

                Jaime

                  Hello, welcome!

                  as far as getting married while in PV on a cruise, I haven't heard of anyone else doing that.

                  for times on weddings, most weddings are around 5/6 because they don't do weddings until after the tourists on the day trip leave LC. that time is sort of in between the day trip crowd and the rhythms of the night show crowd.

                  I think though it depends on the size of your wedding, Nicole (one of the coordinators there) told me that she has arranged a ceremony during the day, of course though it wasn't on the beach, because of the day trippers and was very small and intimate away from the tourists.

                  I do know though that they recently started doing weddings on sundays, they might be more flexible for wedding times on that day because there is not a day trip.

                  Long story short... check with Nicole and/or Kelly they of course will know better...I am sure they could work something out for you! Good luck!

                    I agree with andi - check with nicole and/or kelley. They will know much more about this than us! Don't think I've ever heard of this being done yet, but they are pretty eager & willing to help and if anyone could pull it off they could!

                      I don't think they do tours on Sunday, so that might be your best bet if you need that flexibility.
