        As for the bars, they are all included, except the Corona bar... well, unless that has changed.

It isn't that big of a restaurant, again it really is classy and the salad bar certianly could feed people quite easliy. please have a few for me lol
            The Gran Tortoga is nice and the food is great... A little older and overused, not as classy... you have gotten the better one...
            well karla got back to me today and said we can have two menu options to accommodate the guests so i think we're going to go with the other one now mediterrio (sp?) instead. i really like shrimp and FI likes chicken...and she said if one of the guests can't eat either then we can get the chef to make something else up (although there may be an extra cost).

            now i just have to decide on cake she said...haha.

            we did already pick out the flowers, only because we are trying to co-ordinate because we got real touch flower bouquets for the bridesmaids and peacock boutinerries for the guys. we got our florist friend to pick out from the catalogue what would work best cuz i have no idea about flowers.

              PHOTOGRAPHER AT BAHIA PRINCIPE

              Ladies, I just talked to Jose who was my photographer at Bahia Principe Akumal...He was amazing...Im still trying to figure out how to post my pictures on here but anyways, he is available and he said the best way to reach him is

              josephotographer@gmail.com

              I absolutely loved him. We flew down our photographer from Canada and I was very disappointed in their work....Jose took some random shots for free as part of our wedding package and I absolutely LOVED his work...very funky, sexy, vintage, cool....if that's what you're looking for....I'm not a posey pose kind of bride so he captured everything perfectly....fave pic is me laughing and clapping and my new husband bawling....awwwwww....I wish I could post the pics so you could see!!!

              Email me at wendyalana@yahoo.ca if you want me to show you pics.
              I have to totally agree about Jose! We loved his work as well and ended up buying all the photos that he took of our ceremony instead of just getting the free ones that came with our package. Anyone concerned about the hotel photographer should be rest assured that he is wonderful, fun and professional.

              Jose Insunza
              josephotographer@gmail.com

              Facebook: Arrecife Studio to see his work

              Happy planning!

              Sunnyee

              Sunnyee, do you think you could help the ladies out and let them know how much it was to purchase the pictures? I understand if you're not comfortable with that.

              Also, were they digital images? 4x6, 5x7
