2. IF you used an outside photographer AND you package included the resort photographer, did you still get pictures from the resort photographer in addition to the one you hired since it was included in your package?
We used an outside vendor for photography but didn't do a TTD. However, what we did was pay for Elizabeth and her assistant to stay overnight at the resort. Booking a room for her there was cheaper than paying for a room in Playa del Carmen and then paying for day passes. Checkout the next day wasn't until 12pm so if we did do a TTD, we would have had plenty of time.

We had the new Luxury Package and made use of the resort photographer as well; I wasn't happy with the quality of their photos and was really glad I hired someone else. Nonetheless, the package came with 24 photos and we picked those out. Any additional photos were $10 each and they took 88 in total.

Yes, we had ours on the beach. However, the new 'beach packages' only allow for 3 hours of reception time and we wanted the party to last until 11pm. Because of this, we paid $15 per guest per every extra hour to have the bar open until the end.

Stephanie, when we met with our WC, I mentioned that we were having an outside photographer for our wedding and she never ended up charging us for day passes. We actually should have been charged for 3 day passes because we had the photographer, the videographer, and his assistant. Zulma never mentioned a thing about paying extra and we were all prepared to pay it.

I'm really glad that I didn't have the resort photographers for my wedding because I found them extremely annoying. They kept bugging people relaxing by the pool to take their pictures. And, it wasn't just ONE picture they wanted. They wanted all kinds of poses. I just wanted them to go away and buzz off!

I used the resorts photographer (I had Ceasar) and I thought he was really good. We loved our photos!! I did see them walking around taking photo shoots of people, but it didn't bother us - I thought it would be cool to have a session like that on the beach ( if we weren't getting married there I might have done it!!) We bought our parents each a private dinner on the beach as a thank you and they came over and took pictures. Our parents ended up buying a few and thought it was so neat!! They loved it! :-)

So, your wedding was under the new packages that just came out, correct...
So you guys had to get the package that had the "private wedding reception" so you could get the full 3 hours? or is there something else on the website that I don't see?

Also, with the new packages, when it says 15 guests, 30 guests, etc...does that mean food/drinks are covered for that many people?
The previous packages did not cover food...

I am sooooo confused!

Hi traceyfranzel!

Yes, we changed our package from the old Classic Wedding to the new Luxury Package. It included a 3 hour private reception, which we wanted over having a semi-private in the restaurant. We chose the beach as our location. Our reception began around 6pm and we wanted the bar open until 11pm so we had to pay $15 per person per hour for any extra time we wanted.

When the package lists an amount for guests, it includes food and drinks for them. Anything over, you'll have to pay extra. Our package was for 35 people and we had 31 in total.

Hope this helps!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
