    Hi Ladies,

     

    I just booked my date at Royal PDC yesterday for 11/18/11! I booked the gazebo for the ceremony and haven't decided on a reception site yet.

     

    I'm just starting my planning today, which doesn't give me much time. I'm going to start by looking for a photographer. Do you ladies have any advice? Is there a place I can find a list of websites for good photographers?

     

    I've never booked a photographer before. What's the price range? Do they charge per picture or per hour or per day? Are the prices negotiable?

     

    Thank you! I appreciate any advice!!

      Hey Ladies,

      I have some questions regarding Makeup!! :) 

      I was wanting to go to the M-A-C store on 5th ave to have my makeup done day of the wedding.

      I called the number that is on M-A-C's website and I just get a recorded message in Spanish.. Does anyone know if this service is even provided or know of any M-A-C makeup artists I could get in touch with. 

      Thanks a bunch!!

      3 weeks to go !!!!!

        Hello fellow BDW Brides!!

         

        Happy Easter!! Hope you are all doing well... it's been a few months since my last post. I spent a couple hours reading yesterday with a glass of wine so I'm all caught up!

         

        Congratulations to all recent brides... so exciting!! Can't wait to read the reviews! I didn't see Jesmcan's wedding review, did I miss it?

         

        We sent out our wedding invitations on April 13th and already have 9 booked and counting!!

         

        Oh we just came back from a friends wedding in punta cana, it was so great to see how it all comes together. All I can say is that it justified all my reasons for wanting a wedding away, it was so relaxing and perfect!!!!!!!!!

          Girls,

          I am currently in Puerto Moreles for an Easter escape!  The weather is beautiful and perfect!  Not too hot, but warm enough to dip in the water.  Perfect for weddings! ah°°°° I wish I ve picked a May wedding!

           

          Happy Easter!


          Bonnie

          Married to Mr. El Khaiat on July 4th, 2011 @ Royal Playa Del Carmen

            RGWedding,

            Congratulations!! Time will fly for you. My wedding is May 19th, 2011 and I can't believe it is so soon. I have booked Gonzalo Nunez as my photographer. He seems to be much cheaper then most I had looked at. He is also very quick to respond, and seems very professional. He charges by the hour (different packages will include more hours.) I didn't negotiate the price as it was by far the cheapest I found. His website will show some of his work: nunezgonzalo.com

            I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please let me know. and good luck!!

                  I booked michelle and Justin from artistique photographie they are awesome and experienced destination wedding photographers and you and I are in the same month so I think we would get some referral credit .

                    RG Wedding- I also booked Gonzalo Nunez as my photographer and he has been wonderful to work with.  :)

                    He is very quick to respond and has the best prices I could find.

                      Hi ladies so I leave tomorrow morning, 8am flight!!!!  I'll come on as soon as I get back to let you all know how everything went!

                      I'm going crazy but hoping that everything falls into place I keep thinking to myself just breath...

                       

                      I just went to do the online check in and they have us down for the wrong room so emailed my TA and just hoping this gets worked out.  We spent A LOT of money and booked our room over 6 months ago so The Royal will be hearing from me BIG time if they don't get this straightened out.  Granted it's an upgrade on the room but we wanted oceanfront and the upgraded room is oceanview.  No thanks.

                       

                      Thanks for all the helpful advice this forum was a life saver!


                      Had the most AMAZING wedding at The Royal PDC on May 1, 2011
