Sorry I've been gone for so long ladies.  As far as the photographer goes you absolutely cannot have a photographer from Mexico photograph your wedding. 

You CAN fly in your own photographer.  Your photographer should work out a price with you that includes either a five night stay or includes the $400 fee.  For instance, all of my pricing already includes this and it makes it worry free for you.  Dealing with the resort photographer should be the last of your worries.

Hi Ladies so I also recieved my email and was dissapointed about couple of things so just wanted to clarify. My friend is doing our photos as she is a photographer in her spare time and will be staying at the resort 5 night so this is ok?

Also in the unforgettable package we get so many free photos if I dont want them can I switch this for something else or put the cost towards decorations?

My sister is making me a brooch bouquet as a gift so I asked if I can have 3 small bridesmaids bouquets instead of my bouquet and she said no...... I think this is bit crazy as I said I would pay the difference......

We have been given the ceremony option of 3pm has anyone managed to get it later or is this a good time?  Then the meal at 5 30pm so im a bit concerned guests will be hanging around to long????

We are having a private cocktail reception and I think the cost of the lounge seating is crazy so we are just going with the high tables and chairs I hope this will look nice still. Are we able to add more decorations to the space like candles etc????

Has any past brides had the 3milk cake is it nice?

Also is the surf and turf menu option nice theres nothing worse than getting a tough steak ..

Thanks Ladies its getting exciting now

Also in the unforgettable package we get so many free photos if I dont want them can I switch this for something else or put the cost towards decorations? Nope.  And I'd have them not show up at all.  free photos aren't worth having them IN your good photos

My sister is making me a brooch bouquet as a gift so I asked if I can have 3 small bridesmaids bouquets instead of my bouquet and she said no...... I think this is bit crazy as I said I would pay the difference...... stinks, but plan on giving the bridal bouquet to your maid of honor and then when you meet in person, attempt to get her to swap once again

We have been given the ceremony option of 3pm has anyone managed to get it later or is this a good time?  Then the meal at 5 30pm so im a bit concerned guests will be hanging around to long???? Perfect time.  You'll be done at 330.  Pictures with family until 4, bridal party until 445, bride and groom until 515 and then dinner starts on time,  Your guests will most certainly find something to do.

We are having a private cocktail reception and I think the cost of the lounge seating is crazy so we are just going with the high tables and chairs I hope this will look nice still. Are we able to add more decorations to the space like candles etc????  Candles are often pointless because of the wind.  Maybe just a pretty and simple centerpiece or even just a table runner.

Has any past brides had the 3milk cake is it nice? It's amazing.  super moist

Also is the surf and turf menu option nice theres nothing worse than getting a tough steak .. That I've never had, sorry

Thanks Ladies its getting exciting now

I've finally got a reply.......that the wedding coordinator is out of the office til 16th oct! I'm relieved that I have been acknowledged but it's worrying that brides getting married a few months after mine are getting everything organised with them : ( Can anyone let me know how payment is arranged for the extras ie, reception, extra flowers etc?? Do we pay at the resort when we arrive, or before?? As we have paid for the wedding package already i was curious as we haven't got any prices yet to budget for.

You paid for your wedding package already? We were told by another couple who got married here that the wedding cost gets charged to the room. We're getting married in 1.5 months and we haven't given them any money.. I guess I should look into this! lol

re: candles.. we really wanted candles but since it's so windy we figured it would be a waste so we got flameless votives from ebay, they were about $30 for 48. After I purchased ours, I found them at Target for even cheaper

We booked the wedding package through our travel agents with the flights aswell so it was charged altogether so maybe they do it a different way elsewhere? Any other extras maybe get charged to our room?

Hello, 

 

We wanted to do a poolside reception following dinner. Is this included in the romance extravaganza package? It looks like 2 hours of cocktail hour is included, but we want 3. I dont know if we are going to get a DJ, or just use our ipod and rent out speakers and equipment. I feel like if we do the IPOD then we can make sure all of our songs get played... And I'm sure I could just have my cousin do the names of bridesmaids and groomsmen and bride and groom for the entrance, as well as lead the garter and bouquet toss... Any thoughts?
