Hi celine!
I'm using Vicotor and so are a few other ladies on BDW (see below), but he doesn't have any reviews on here, yet. I randomly stumbled upon him while searching online for a photog in our budget. He seems like a super sweet guy, very responsive, very good pricing and his pics are beautiful so I would definitely recommend him from what I've experienced up to this point msnwink.gif Good luck!

We're using Victor Herrera (Victor Herrera Wedding Photographer Cancun and Riviera Maya | Mexico Destination Wedding Photographers | International Wedding Photographer). We booked before the rate change, though, so luckily we're still at the $100 outside vendor fee. Here's his pricing info http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...ography-53033/

First i was told that the oct. date that i wanted was totally open according to their sheet, so i was sent all the paperwork incl. booking sheet, credit authorization etc..I filled it out and sent it right back and was told the date will be confirmed with the resort by the next day. Waited and waited to no avail. I called the office and was told sorry they overlooked a wedding of 500 people on that same weekend that somehow was deleted off their sheet. Okay so looked at another date in November and was told i needed to await confirmation again from the resort. The weekend came and went and finally after hearing nothing by late Monday, I called and they acted like they had no idea who I was or what I was calling about. I had to re-explain and at that point I said after the lack of response I have received both times now, I am getting ready to go elsewhere. Well, after they apoligized she promised to email me the date and times and locations of my request and that I should hear for sure by today!!!

Still havent heard a thing..... Is this standard for them b/c im sorry this is rambling on but I am not trying to plan my wedding overnight :), I just want to nail down a date with times of ceremony and venue choices. Any and all input will be appreciated.
Oh man, I'm sorry that has been happening to you rant.gif I would definitely not be happy, either.
Have they assigned you a WC, yet? If you look back over the last 20 or so pgs of the thread, you'll see that their best WC (Kimberly R) up and quit a couple weeks ago and left them (and us!) high and dry. So that might be why its taking them so long to get back to you (on top of their slow communication in general).
I would suggest emailing rather than phone calls. I haven't called the WC office once and haven't had any problems w/them not knowing who I was at any point. Plus you'll have everything in writing that way and you won't have to remind them who you are everytime you speak to someone new. They aren't the fastest w/communication, even via email, but I have found (and many other ladies on here) that if you send the same email to them once a day (being polite but stern) they'll get back to you. Hope that helps!

I, too, worked with a TA to secure my date. It took her weeks to get them to finalize and to even cash my check. My TA had to follow up each day and sometimes several times a day to finally get the official ok and check cashed.

Thanks in advance.
I was told Mexico runs on standard US. So no adapters needed. I looked it up online to make sure and it was right.

Oh, one more thing. I haven't been able to find anything on this forum so far but does anyone know anything about Mike Cantarell, he's a videographer/photographer. I can't seem to find any threads on him. His work seems good on his webpage.

I just thought of something- We have the Luxury Pkg which includes 1 HR cocktail- what are the location options for this? Do you get to choose (because I don't remember that being a selection on any of the sheets)

 

Oh and Jesmcan, I totally love your website and TOTALLY copied stuff from you and candicemarie (hope you don't mind). **tee hee** it was just so well done!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
