Do you have the prices for the Funever? I might get them to do just the ceremony or something...

Shay - I actually have 2008 rates.. 2009 prices might be higher. The list I have offers 1:15 hrs for $390, 3 hrs for $550, and 6 hrs for $790. Fairly reasonable compared to other rates I've seen.. though I'd still like to get a sense of the video quality. If it's not great.. I might as well have a friend or family member video tape. I agree slide shows are great, but I too would like to capture more of the day on live footage.

While we're on the topic of videos.. i came across a really cool trash the dress video on the forum.. thought i'd share with you guys. I wish I could afford something like this!

Hi Shay,

 

I've attached the 2009 price list. We're torn about hiring a videographer too. Do any former brides have input or suggestions? Is it worth it?

 

Also, we found out that our WC is Zulma. Does anyone have her information? Also, does anyone have suggestions on mariachis to hire? Should I go through the RPDC or through another vendor?

 

Thanks,

V.

THANK YOU!!

Yah...$500US for an hour of video...CRAP! The more I think about it, the more I would like video...but honestly...for $500...I think I'll just try to rig my little HD camcorder on a tripod...hook up a Mic...and hope it turns out! cheesy.gif LOL

I think since the Canadian dollar starting falling again, and all of our wedding stuff in Mexico is now costing us about 30% MORE than it was a month ago...I'm going to try to save EVERYWHERE I can!

FYI: We are using the Mariachi Band associated with RPDC. I've heard good things!

Hi Ladies! I am so excited to find someone else who is getting married at the Gran Porto! We really wanted the Royal but I have family with small children and my dad is coming in from Afghanistan so I really didn't want to be away from everyone after they made the trip for us.

I have been reading and can't get off the computer now!

Steph

We are currently working w/ Laura. I sent her my $300 deposit (via credit card authorization form) and she told me that I will have to make 2 more payments...one in 30 days and another in 60 days. Maybe she is just more strict b/c she is the wedding manager...

Pics-who is this Rachel person? Does she have a website? I love Elizabeth Medina, but she is pricey. I will have about 40 people at my wedding, so I will already be spending a lot of money on food, etc...

Food-Can you guys recommend a menu for the 3 course dinner? We wanted buffet style, but I think you have to have 50+ people for that.

DJ-the DJ that is provided by RPDC...has anyone used them? If so, who was it and how was the music?

Has anyone been to RPDC in October? I am wondering what the weather will be like there. I live in Louisiana and it is 40 degrees here right now...

I am also interested in finding out about a DJ? I am having a bunch of friends coming and definitely want everyone to have a goodtime and I feel like the music will make the difference.
Any suggestions?

Dcheung,

 

In regards to your FunEver question...from the research I have done:

 

FunEver basically contracts out photographers, they do not have 1 or 2 specific photographers...I think one that they use is Vanessa Vargas. I think you can google her name and her website will come up...I think I may use her...I LOVE Elizabeth Medina, but she is a bit pricey. I have also heard that it is cheaper to book Vargas through the resort.

 

I hope this helps.

If you do a search on the forum, you will find out that Vanessa Vargas (amazing, yes), no longer works with FunEver. She is on "her own" now...doing the solo thing.

I cannot find any up to date information on who FunEver has contracted now.

Just FYI!

Thanks Tracey.. actually I already booked Elizabeth Medina for photography. Her work is really amazing.. definitely pricier that average but I know it'll be worth it! I'm trying to find out who FunEver will be contracting for videography.. so far, I haven't seen anything on the forum... :oT

    • 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!
