      What about a videographer? I don't want a DVD slideshow of pictures. I would like an actual videographer. Are we allowed to hire someone to do this if they don't offer the service on the resort? I want a video just as much if not more than pictures.  Did anyone have a videographer? Thanks!

              We used the resort photographer and I wish I could rave about the video but I was left feeling a little disappointed. The quality wasn't that great and there are few awkwardly long still shots (like my mom and I smiling into the camera for a whole 30 seconds). The only part of our ceremony you actually hear are our vows since the wind made it difficult for the mic to pick up the sound but she did some cool effects like pausing it when the bridal party is mid-jump on the beach. The worst part was she put the wrong date at the end and we didn't have the heart to tell her. She was super sweet and we could tell she really wanted to make this special for us. I would suggest meeting with her before hand to discuss what you want. If we had done that I'm sure it would have turned out closer to what we had in mind!

                    I am getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe on January 6, 2011 and I have a few questions you may be able to help me with. 

                     

                    Karla is my wedding coordinator and I am having some difficulty getting the ceremony time I want.  They want my ceremony to be at 4:00 but I really want it earlier, at 2:00.  I have a relative coming with me who is a wedding photographer, and she usually needs around 2 hours for pictures.  Looking at sunset times, it doesn’t seem like enough time for us.  Just wondering if anyone out there was able to have an earlier ceremony time??

                     

                    Is it possible to rent speakers from the resort instead of hiring a DJ?  We like the idea of just using our IPOD for the reception instead of paying for a DJ.

                     

                    Does anyone have a link or any maps of the resorts they can share?  My ceremony is at the beach palapas area (I am not sure exactly where that is) and I am going with the Mediterranean restaurant for dinner and the Jacuzzi Bar for the reception.  However, I don’t know where any of these locations are!

                     

                    I do appreciate any thoughts or input you have!

                     

                    Andrea


                    Here is the resort map:



                    I think we're just having a small wedding...just 13 of us total. So far, I think probably another 2-4 people will book though. Any suggestions on what we should do for after dinner? I don't know if I see the point in having a 'reception'. Unless we can bring our own ipod and speakers? Do you know if the plugs are the same as north america? Would they allow us to play our own music? Would it be silly having a little reception for just us...I'm just not sure where else we'd be able to go with children after dinner.

                    Thanks!


                    SOME plugs are the same and some are the same but have a weird outlet cover which requires an adaptor. Bring a few from home (even for the rooms) or you can buy them in the shops for less than a buck.

                     

                    If you want to play your own music you will most likely need to bring your own speakers, look into renting from a vendor outside the resort or hire a DJ. I would guess that playing your own music will require you to have a private reception.. which is not a bad idea... even for 15 people. However, if kids are your concern, don't be... kids are allowed at all the bars with the exception of the disco in the hacienda. My 11 year old daughter was with us at every bar and I saw several other kids of all ages. They're not like regular bars you're used to. Good luck!
