    Hello all,

    I am so grateful to have this resource available and meet you all. We are getting married Nov 18, 2010 and are still trying to decide between Akumal and Tulum - basically it is down to which one is cheaper :)

    So unfortunately I have heard that there is no longer outside photographers allowed at the resort but I can't seem to find any information as to whether Conrado Gonzalez is still the resort photographer? I am curious what kind of experience the previous brides had with the resort photographer?

    I asked Claudia Rodriguez to be our photographer prior to finding this out and offered to check her in so we could still use her, she said that she was not willing to go against resort policy. Any suggestions?

    Also, did anyone have live music for their ceremony? What did you think? Would you change anything?

    haha. I know this is a lot.
    Can't wait to get to know you all :)

    Angelina

            Angelina - Conrad has not been their photographer for some time. I think his name is still in everything they email out for some reason. A couple people on here have used the resort photographer now and I think they were happy with the results. Ask them to email you a package.

            If you want Claudia really badly, you will have to either switch resorts or look at doing the wedding and photos off site. Of course that kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it!

            Good luck!

              Question for you lovely ladies who have been married at the resort. Did any of you have your hair done by the salon on site? I do not want to have mine done, but my MOH would like to because she never does up do's etc and wants the help. Were you happy with the service or should we plan to do her hair for her amongst ourselves?

              ......

              Okay I posted this and then watched your video Wendy! It was wonderful and you looked beautiful! It looks like you had your hair done at the salon....I gather you were happy with it? What were their prices like?

                I was just wondering this! I think my girls would like their hair done... I was thinking of paying for it but based on the price list that I got from Eugenia just for styling, I may be changing my mind.

                750 pesos to style... seems a little much to me?

                    750 pesos? That is about $57 USD? Is that really expensive....hair always seems to cost so much these days!

                    I was thinking of you the other day HereFishie....we should try hook up again before I go:)
