    A few answers

    Carolina's new email ( I got this right before I left, so early December) weddings.bavaro@fiestahotelgroup.com

    The resort photographer: There is a company called Bazaar and Co. That run the shops, and photography at the resort. The photography company is also called "Jalu". The guy in the office is Jose. There are several actual photographers, some more experienced then others. The two that I know do weddings are Andres Cantera (my photog) and Peter Reilly.

    How you are feeling pressured right now by this HDC guy is similar to the way you will be pressured by all the vendors in the area, the excursion sellers, the shop owners etc. I even found the non-wedding photographers to be pushy, however in the Bazaar and co shops they are not pushy. Andres, Jose, Peter, our Videographer, all not pushy.

    Hope this helps

      That's the e-mail add I've been using which gets bounced back.
      I used another add, that went through, I had posted I think? but not sure if an actual Wedding Coordinator got it.

        I'm just taking a look at the website, I paid less for the silver renewal of vows package, the trio band, and the DJ. Also the included cake serves way more then 8 ppl, I'd say any less then 35 and you'll be fine. Maybe they think us North Americans want huge slices

        Oh, I saw the horse and carriage. Last I heard the hose had died, but they got a new one. A beautiful white horse and a white carriage

              acliente.bavaro@fiestahotelgroup.com

              that's the new e-mail address that is on the website to get in contact with Carolina!

              you'd think they would contact thier brides and let them know their e-mail has changed!

              Who's getting married next, and are you having a legal or symbolic wedding? I am freaking out a bit again, over the fact I haven't sign a single paper saying I'd be there, or put a deposit.
              Now no one can get in contact with her, I guess I've had some time on my hands and the nervousness has officially kicked in lol!!!

                I never signed anything either. Just make sure you have confirmed the day with her and asked for a time (if legal, confirmed a time). I never had to put down a deposit. Mind you, I did a symbolic wedding

                  I am just nervous because I want to start dealing with Carolina - I am sure her assistant is fine, but I have heard so many great things about Carolina and would prefer to work with her. Mostly because Kenia has not returned our emails for 2.5 weeks.

                  Who is the next to get married?? I'm curious too!

                    the next 3 months are going to fly by, i am so ready to relax for 2 weeks and party!!
                    Hey we are getting married on the same date :)

                    I ordered my FI and 4 GM suits from studio suit online, I ordered them on the 30th of november and got them on the 30th of december. They are perfect!!!!
                    we do have to do some ajustements but that is because my FI and BM lost weight, but the other 2 GM are perfect, no touch up.
                    no place will beat 99$ for a suit that's for sure. We're even gonna order more in different colors for that price, can't go wrong :)

                    The next 3 months are gonna go by so fast, it's crazy, but exciting!!!!!
