Hello,

 

 

 

I have two questions for the people that have already gotten married.

 

 

 

1. How long did it take for your photog to take pics of the wedding? I'm trying to figure out how long to hire one for, my wedding is going to be very small with not MOH or Best Man.

 

 

 

2. I read somewhere that if you are getting legally married in Cabo that you should plan on being there at least two days in advance of your wedding. Anyone know why? We were thinking of arriving in Cabo on June 3rd and getting married on the 5th, since the 3rd is a Sunday do you think that give whoever enough time to do what they have to do?

 

 

 

Thanks in advance for your replies

i can't tell you about the legal stuff but may help with your photog quetsion...

 

 

 

the photog i had scheduled originally said he would have my pics on a disk within 2 days...the new photog still hasnt gotten them to me and i am PISSED because he has promised he would have them by __________ date and those dates came and went with no pics...it has been almost 3 weeks and no pics.

 

 

 

the pics better be FABULOUS or i will be so annoyed...to make it worse because he was so slow to get my pics, it delayed videographer who was waiting for like 4 pics to put in the video...

We got legally married in the states first so I can't help you with that either. Our photographer (we hired a LA photographer and brought him with us) was ALL over the place so I can't wait to see the pix. He says it will take him two weeks from today so I will keep you posted. He started pre-pictures around 4 ...my wedding was at 6:15.

I got married legally in Mexico and you need to go to a clinic or have someone come to you to get your blood taken. At Dreams the only option given to us was to have the blood taken at a local clinic. It was pretty easy and painless. The only problem we had was picking up the results the next day, I was told someone else could do it and sent my dad and it ended up that I had to be there. I think it was $50 per couple.

 

 

 

I had my photographer for an hour before and 3 hours after. We took a ton of photos on the beach. It just depends on what you want. We wanted him to stay to take some of us dancing. Felissa

i used him and was annoyed because it was taking so long to get the pics back...just got them this morning and they are FANTASTIC!!!! i mean so much better than i imagined. it was so worth the extra time he took to process them. i highly recommend him and will post some of his pics when i get the disk!

 

 

 

ps. i used to be an assistant photog at weddings so had a very high expectations. also, steves mom is a professional photog she loves them. i didn't think he caught ANY candids because i didn't see him during the reception but he is very STEALTH and took some really great candids.

 

 

 

A+++

Thanks for giving an update on how his pictures turned out. I can't wait to see them. His prices went up to $400.00 an hour.

    • Hi! Thanks for sharing this story. Happy married life! If you once will need a website, here are the tips to choose a proper style and purpose. What is the purpose of a website?  Everyone finds a good reason to create a website! But in general, we can say that the websites are being created to offer a useful service that others will use. It can even be free, although if this is something really cool, you can always make money on it!
    • Hello All.. I am new to this forum and I am here to learn and share wedding clothing, jewellery tips. Hope my journey will be great here!!
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
