      Wow. It has taken me a couple weeks of reading to get through this. My fiance has called me "obsessed" LOL.

      We are officially booked at GBP -Tulum for February 25, 2010! I am pretty excited and we have a bunch of guests already booked!

      This forum has been great for info. I have never been on a forum before (not a super computer person) so hopefully this works!

          Thanks! We have just finished finalizing a bunch of stuff and as of today 31 adults and 4 kids are booked!

          I know the resort will do a lot of the stuff, but figuring out photographers (still trying to find out if they will let us bring in our own) and the OOT bags! Flowers I think will be easy. Bright, fresh pretty.....should be ok:)

              Thank u Raykel...And Yes the resort allows u to bring a photographer in. The cost is $90.00 USD. Karla at the Bahia says nothing so far has changed, they`ll def. give notice before making changes.

                See that is where I am confused. Jazmin just sent me a message saying no....I have been in touch with Claudia Rodriguez and she says she has a meeting with the resort on Friday and will let me know the decision. I know they are not using that Conrado any longer, but I am not sure how I feel about the resort choosing my photographer....or the packages they offer.
                I guess I will have to wait and see after Friday! I am so impatient though!

                  Please post whatever you find out. I haven't been able to get straight answers from the resort. I asked claudia to ask as well. I emailed them and said that if they are going to change the policy than they have to let brides know at the time of booking the date. Because everyone else hasn't had a problem until now.

                    well it's good to know that not everyone did a group rate. i am still deciding...just waiting 'impatiently' for the save the dates! i think sending those out will start to make things feel more official too!

                    so what's this info about conrad not being the resort photog anymore? or about bringing in local photographers? does anyone have the contact info or website for the new photog? i am just trying to figure out our budget now for that.

                    thanks!

                      I got an email from Jazmin last week and this is exactly what she wrote about the photographer:

                      In case you required photo services, the one authorized to shot the weddings is amazing, as follow you can see his main packages, just let me know what you decide to can book him,
                      v DVD 25 minutes, with edition 400.00 USD
                      v Photo Packages (Have to be paid directly to the Photographer)

                      the contact is with Ms Russe Pla, she´s the wedding photo & video manager assistance, and she has 2 emails where you can try to contact her, russ.pla@arrecifestudio.com photorp@yahoo.com.
                      m

                      So I'm not sure if she's saying this is the only photographer authorized to shoot on the resort? It's kind of vague. The website doesn't show a lot of variety either... so I'm really confused too! If anyone finds anything out please post :)
