      Hi Ladies!

       

      Just wondering if any of you have taken or will be taking your own photographer with you? I am getting married April of this year and we have our photographer from home coming with us for a week, as a guest.

       

      The resort Arrecife Studio (resort photographer) says that is fine, but they are wanting to know all of the details about our photographer. I am starting to worry just a little bit because I do not know why they need to know that...They are also saying they will still be coming to photograph our ceremony even though we have said we do not need them....any feedback???

        We are brining our photographer as well, but I am not tell them... she is just a guest who is doing her portfolio and is taking pictures as a present for us.  That is what I am telling the resort photographers.  Too bad if they want to know more.  She is your guest and why would they want to know personal information about your guest?  Just don't tell them anything, they can be pushy from what I understand.

          I have a question re drinking mugs.  Are resort drinks come in small cups or why would people bring their own mugs to the resort?  (I've never been to an all-inclusive resort... :( )

              I would be careful with giving them information about your photographer.  And really, that's just because a lot of photographers don't get the correct visas to work in Mexico.  So if you're bringing your photographer with you and they fill out the paperwork properly, it shouldn't be a problem.

                Hi Gemma,

                 

                I am having my brother & cousin & Jazmin has said this is fine, she has also asked me to email her copies of their passports in advance.  See if you can do this & that way they might not have to be there four days before....worth a try!!  I'll fb you as well xx

                What will happen as apart from the other 2 witnesses who fly with us the rest of our guests are my immediate family!

                Any knowlege from past or brides to be would be fab, thanks!

                  melady24,

                   

                  We like to bring our own insulated travel mugs to the resort because they keep your drink nice and cold. Also, they are environmentally friendly! Some of the bartenders will remember your cup and the last drink you ordered too. I prefer using a straw with my travel mug and I bring my own supply because they are very hard to come by at the Bahia.

                   

                  Hope that helps!

                  Sunnyee

                    crystalz,

                     

                    I was at the Bahia the last week in October of 2010 and can tell you that the weather was great. We had only a bit of rain, mostly at night and the days were very hot and humid. Perfect!

                     

                    If you would like to see some pics, give me your email address and I can send you some. Been there 8 times and am heading back in 19 more sleeps!

                     

                    Cheers,

                     

                    Sunnyee
