Thanks to TwitterI have found so many amazing people in the wedding industry, from photographersand wedding planners, to invitation designersand bloggers just like me! They have all been so warm and inviting like Kristen from Savy Deets Bridal blog, who will soon be celebrating her 2 year wedding anniversary!
"My husband and I had just married, had a day to pause, rest and pack, and were off on our honeymoon to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Neither of us had been to PVR, however I had been to other Mexican **hotspots before, so we had no idea what to expect from our honeymoon, except for us to enjoy and **celebrate our love and new marriage.
4. Do Your Research...
Mexican sunsets, hammocks made for two swaying in the ocean breeze,
a candlelit dinner for two on the beach, a beautiful resort flanked by cliffs....it must be a Honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta.
We chose to stay at Dreams Puerto Vallarta, and had spent 3 weeks of research to decide to go with this porperty. Myself coming from a travel industry background, I fished out places we didn't want to go with, and made of list of the desired options. Further research of reviews and the like pin pointed to Dreamsand it won in a landslide! We are so glad we made this decision. We booked with Apple Vacations, which I promote a lot because they are an excellent company to work with when planning vacations. We didn't have to pay all upfront either, we paid for air and a deposit on the "land" package, and then made monthly installments until it was paid in full. We appreciated this, as we were planning our wedding afterall, and not having to put the whole amount up front furthered our committing to the package.
The nice thing about the resort is they had a car service waiting for us at the airport, we just had to not talk to do the** timeshare sharks** at the exit doors-oh they are there, teeth gnashing, greedy buggers! There is no surgar coating going through that mess and maze, we did get lured into a conversation, and then I saw the Apple Vacationsreps hanging outside the airport, and we escaped! From there, it was smooth sailing!
