  1. Hello brides! I've been scouting this forum quite a bit - I'm getting married in July 2015 but have been getting so much useful information from this forum that i thought I'd share some as well! I asked the hotel directly about outside vendor fees and here's what i've gathered: 1. Photographer: $500 or 2 nights at the hotel. Note that if you have more than one photographer though, I think it's probably a better deal to pay the $500 fee because you'd need to pay the entrance fee for each guest for 2 nights (since the room fee includes food/drink etc). I don't think you could get away w
  2. Absolutely Amazing - Do yourself a favor, hire Sascha for your wedding!

    Pros: Extremely talented, responsive, great prices, pleasant
    Cons: None!

    MVP Hair and Makeup Artistry

    Melissa & her team are truly the best! Do yourself a favor and hire them!

    Pros: Great service, responsive, beautiful end result!
    Cons: None!
    I got married at the Barcelo Maya Palace on July 1st, 2015. One of the first things I looked for when we decided on a destination wedding was a great hair & makeup artist - I was extremely nervous about finding someone, and Melissa immediately put all my worries to rest! They were extremely responsive from the very beginning - which, when dealing with vendors for a destination wedding is SO helpful and important. All emails were typically answered within an hour - an impressive feat! Once th
