  1. I don't have Sascha's current pricing, but we recently hired him for our wedding in Akumal, Mexico in June, 2010. I remember looking for photographer's and being overwhelmed, but I couldn't be happier with the outcome. When i was searching for photographers, I certainly remember Sascha having extremely reasonable prices. He was phenomenal, and for half the price of some of the pricier photographers out there!
  2. Unfortunately, I can't explain why she hasn't been responding, but I just wanted to write a quick note to say that I'm one of the brides mariesam turned over to Jenn to do my wedding cake and she did a phenomenal job! I didn't give much for requirements, just chocolate cake on the inside and cream-colored frosting on the outside with a few of our pink wedding flowers for decoration. She fulfilled every request, and our guests all thought it tasted amazing. Â As others have said on the forum, she can likely fill just about any request, so I really hope you're able to get a hold of her. Good luck!
  3. Hey ladies!! Just got back from Akumal last night, and I can definitely reinforce what MarieSam has been saying all along - Akumal is absolutely amazing!! Although the sun didn't shine as much as i had hoped, we got alot done!! We are getting married at Las Villas Akumal, and i feel so much better knowing we've made the right decision. We did get to visit Yal-Ku lagoo, and I saw Casa Romero from the outside and it looks amazing, though I'm sure MarieSam can tell you more about it. Now I'm just hoping the next four months pass quickly!!!
  4. Hey Shannon, Congrats on the engagement and welcome to the forum! Glad it's already been helpful for you! I'm getting married in mexico, but to avoid getting our blood drawn, translating a marriage license and all the additional costs, we are going down to the local courthouse and getting legally married a few days beforehand (but not telling anyone)! That seems to be relatively popular thing to do.
  5. I like the idea of having it made by someone else for a much cheaper price, but do you have time give that your wedding is in January? Not sure how long it would take to recreate, but it's a good idea! If that's not possible, honestly, I say go with the dress that you really want. It's your one day to shine, when all eyes are on you! Good luck!
  6. Congrats and welcome. By now, you've likely picked out the resort, but I agree with the other brides, it was definitely the most difficult decision! I ended up choosing Mexico as well. Good luck with the rest of the planning!
  7. Welcome! Like others have said, Mexico is relatively easy to get to and because there are so many flights that go there, it makes it relatively cheap as well! I'm in MPLS, and I'm planning my wedding in Akumal, Mexico. Good luck!
  8. I have the same dilemma! I'm less worried about headcount numbers than I am about people booking. I sent out STD's in late October and will be sending out invitations in early January and a response by mid-February I think. I also toyed with the idea of sending out packets of information, but am now thinking that all that information is available on the website...
  9. I'm getting married in Akumal, and our wedding coordinator suggested Alfonzo De Malaga as a ceremony guitarist, and he is charging $275 for 45 min. For an extra charge, my DJ is providing the equipment for the beach ceremony. Try using the search function for more helpful threads too! Hope this helps!
  10. I'm getting married in Akumal, as well! I only check in here every once in a while, but there are a few other brides out there that have either gotten married or are getting married in Akumal. I'm getting married at Las Villas Akumal on June 5th, 2010. Congrats and Welcome!
  11. Personally, I would not put the pricing on the STD. I think you'll be able to provide more detailed information on a website, and it will still look elegant if you have the website on the STD. That way you can still provide your guests all the information they need, plus more since you'll have endless room on a website!!
