She was adamant about this. I will post the band info when I get it. I figure even if it's their rate plus the $300 outside vendor fee it may still be less....
    Thank you so much that would be a tremendous help.

Search the net for AJUA weddings.
      I am definitely going to look into them. Thank You!!!!

        Hello,
        So my next question is about photography.
        The packages the Paradisus offers for photography are very high for what you get.

        I am all for paying $ for the photographer but I want to get my $’s worth and it doesn’t seem like you do w/ the company they use. At least I don’t think so………

        Does anybody have any photographers they could recommend?

        Thanks 

          You should use the search function for this. There are a lot of good photographers down there and some are members of the forum. I'm sure you will find dozens of threads so you can check out different photogs. Also, check out other brides wedding reviews. They sometimes contain some professional pics so you can get an idea of different styles and decide what you like!

              HI Missy!

              I've been in Utah, hiking thru the national parks w/ my FI (our last active getaway before the wedding :) ). I just wanted to send a quick post to you- you must be getting so excited!!! You have been so helpful to everyone w/ the information you have provided. Thanks again. I also like the new pic of you and your FI.

              My mom and I are going to be down for a site visit Nov 14-18: It's probably too early, but will you be there yet?

                Aweee thanks! We are getting super excited - hard to believe that we are less than 6 weeks away! Just working on the last few DIY projects - Welcome Books, Menu Cards etc. and the details of the day!

                I will post a planning thread in the next couple of weeks ladies! I promise! And of course a detailed review - since I know how helpful this forum has been for me in my planning!

                We will just miss you RobinHood! We don't arrive until the 23rd unfortunately -I am soo excited for your site visit - it's going to be awesome!

                  Hello all! So, I am another one of those displaced DT brides going to PRC. Not that I'm complaining, I heard it's fabulous.

                  The one question I have is....is anyone getting married on 10/27/08...or is there some other thread I should go to that show all wedding days?

                  Thanks!

                    I am sorry for your displacement (that sounds weird). I will tell you from someone who has been to the PRC - you have nothing to worry about.

                    As far as I know there is no one on here getting married on 10/27. I believe that I am the next PRC original bride - I think there are a couple others that have moved over since DT closed.. but I dont think any have that date!

                    If you need any help let us know!

                      As another relocated Dreams Tulum bride, Im wondering if some one can point me in the direction of some Paradisus reviews, with pictures :) please :) and Thank you! :)

                      One other question... How far is Paradisus from Cancun? 30 min? more? less?

                      THANK YOU!!!!
