Hi Ottawa Bride! Congrats on your wedding and I'm so glad everything went extremely well! I'm that much more excited now after seeing how smoothly everything went for you and how much you enjoyed yourself. I'm even thinking now that we should think about booking the sunset cruise for our guests. I was wondering if you have any photos of the night portion of your wedding from the restaurant and beach party? My FI and I can't decide if we want to rent out a seperate venue for the party or do the beach party thing. How was the band? What type of music did they play? Had it not been for the band do you think it still would have been fun to have an ipod stereo playing the music? Thanks so much!

Hi Seaprincess!

Not sure if you're still checking the site or not, but was hoping you could help put me in touch with PhotoSouvenir!? I saw your review of them and checked out their website. I've emailed 3 times using their 'contact us' section and have tried calling a number of times. I haven't heard anything back. I would love to use them, but I'm worried that they're booked up now. My wedding is January 16, 2010 at the Grand Palladium Bavaro.

 

Thanks!

Amanda

Hi Amanda,
I had the same problem with them, haha I still haven't heard from them!
I contacted HCD, I got a reply in minutes. I've seen his work and it looks amazing. Might want to contact Arnaud. His amazing and his price are reasonable (actually they are amazing)

Hi Amanda, I also booked with HCD. They're pics and video are spectacular. I received a quote from them within a few hours. (If you get pics, video and Trash the Dress session Arnaud gives you a discount as well). His packages offer sooo many pictures and even a photo book is mailed to you afterwards.

Hi Amanda,
I'm still on here occasionally, but I'm sorry I don't have any advice for getting in touch with PhotoSouveir. I booked them in Sept 2008 (for my Jan 2009 wedding) by email. I never had trouble getting a reply from them, but apparently they are SUPER busy now. I highly doubt they will have your date available less than 2 months out from your wedding...sorry. You can always try emailing them again (with your date in the subject line) or maybe follow Carribean's advice and see if HDC is available?

cherrybomb, what kind of deal did you get? I got pics, video, and ttd, but i'm not sure we are getting a discount, so far i've only paid the deposit, which for me was $400 USD.

Sooo I have a dilemma... I picked a photographer here in MTL back when we were planning our wedding here (before we changed our minds to a DW) we had left a deposit. She was nice enough to give our deposit as engagement photos. The end of Oct we finally went and took the pics. I've heard from her once since saying I'd recieve them in a few weeks. Ok, fine... I recently e-mailed her asking her roughly when does she think she would be sending them (by mail) and to inform me more in detail about the boudoir photo session. Well I still haven't heard back from her, and still have no idea when she'd be free to do the session. So I'm freaking out!!! Do I find another photographer?!? I've looked around sent a few e-mails few weeks ago and no reply's.

Anyone know of a photographer that works in this area?!

Hi Beachbum

 

We are paying $1926 USD for Gold Photo package (5 hours) + Platinum Video Package + Trash the Dress Session. I think we got a 10% discount on that. Our deposit was $385 USD. Sounds like you're paying around the same?

CarribeanLover that totally sucks! Does your photographer have an office that you can just show up at? There's no excuse for her to not return your calls, especially since she's already taken the time to take your photos! If it were me I'd just go to her office in person or call her every day until she calls you back!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
