WOW, $4000 for the band?? I would definetely spend the $4200 on the photographer to have great photos to look back on . . . no questions asked. You can't go wrong with Del Sol from what I've seen of their work.

I'm one of the few brides out there who is not into photography, so we are not spending a ton on it. I am personally not really interested in much professional photography. I'm truly happy with what my family will take and the candids we get. So we are getting a very basic photography package that is around $1000.

How'd you find a band?? I've been so nervous about finding a band in Cancun! Did you get a chance to listen to them before you booked? I'm afraid to book one without hearing them first...

We are getting married in Costa Rica and I had friend that lives there recommended a great young photographer. I really like her work and she has been very responsive and extremely enthusiastic.

 

Our package is $2000.00 and includes:

Engagement Session 2 hrs -$300.00/45 images high and low res.

Rehearsal Dinner 3 hrs-$300.00/ 200 images

Bride Prep - Ceremony, Couples Session and Reception 8 hours - $1200.00/ 300 images

Expenses - $200.00 includes, trans, accommodation and food for 2 days.

 

I also added a provision to our contract limiting the use of the wedding photo's on photographer's website. Establishing that they need to be approved by us and no more than four images.

 

Good Luck!

our friends got married outside of Cancun last year and recomended the band Kiko and Carlos. they have a website where you can see their song list and hear their music. They charge $900/hr but if you compare that to what you would spend in the US, its a bargan! The couple were very pleased and had a great time! I'll have to look up their web address but you could try googling them.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
