As with everything in life people have different opinions on Arrecife photos so please can I pick your brain . . . . .  we get married 20 June and have booked through a UK Tour Operator our holiday and wedding package altogether - we get 10 photos with the package but clearly will want more.  

I want to be organised and would prefer to have an idea of how much photos are going to be etc, the prices on this forum are from 2010 so there will have been an increase of some size I am sure.  

Do you get the option of colour and  black & white photos?

Did you buy the CD with all the photos  - if you did are they free from watermark so you can print at home also can the photos on CD be enlarged etc with no problem due to pixel size.

How soon do we get to see the photos after the wedding ?

How long are the photographers with you, or are there different options available?

Is there more than 1 photographer taking photos on the day?

How much was the videographer and how long were they with you? 


It would make sense that Arrecife had on their website a pricelist with a breakdown of all the services they offer!


Many thanks in advance.


I have a up to date price list if you want to pm me your email address ill send it over for you!

I sent you a PM so I could hopefully get the updated price list and update the official thread.  Thanks!


As for rain predicted on your wedding date, it typically rains at night so it shouldn't be a problem.  You never know, and sometimes we just have to roll with the punches, but I'm sure it'll be beautiful no matter what.

The Tulum rain location is really pretty, but I'm sure you won't need to use it :)

Hey girls,

Just wondering what the rooms are like for the bride and groom. Is there a sofa bed or anything? Wondering if I can have all my girls stay in the room with me the night before the wedding.

It depends if you got a suite or the normal room.  The normal room only has a table and chairs.  The suites have a couch which doubles as a twin bed.  So about five people can sleep in the room.

Tlseege - I can't remember if it was you or someone else - that had posted about the sand ceremony including the moms of the bride and groom
Was that you? Do you by chance have the wording for that?

It was me that had the moms involved, but there wasn't really any specific wording.


The moms walked my husband down the aisle.  One on each arm.  Then before they were seated, the dumped a "foundation" into our sand ceremony kit.  It's just like how the mom's light the unity candles during a church wedding. 


The part of the ceremony that we thought fit is this: Before each of you there is a container of sand. Each container represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families that once were apart.


Here is the whole thing:


There is a song that speaks of “a long and winding road†and before you met, your lives were on such a road... each going in different directions and seemingly leading to different destinations. But somewhere along the way you took a fork in the road to a destination called “love†and today you find yourselves standing together at the entrance of a new path that will join your once separate journeys into one. 
Before each of you there is a container of sand. Each container represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families that once were apart. I will ask that in a moment you both blend your individual container of sand together... representing the coming together of your friends and family, through your marriage, into one. And as the sand is blended into one container, your once solitary journeys will now be one of companionship, as you walk a single path together into your future.
I now ask that you blend your containers of sand together. 
The couple  picks up their individual containers of sand and blend them together. - Bless Broken Road Plays
As the sand has blended together, your lives are now joined. Your friends and family are as one as well, for now you will share those who are in your lives and will walk hand-in-hand along the path of your marriage - united and strong as husband and wife.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
