    Arrecife can provide you with the letter saying that you have purchased copyrights from them.  You can save, print, e-mail whatever you want - it's all yours.

     

    Vidiographer is also available, but we did not use them.  I think Arrecife's website has some samples or I saw them here somewhere.

    Did the photographs have a copyright on them? or does arrecife allow you to save them to your own computer from a DVD and print them on your own wherever you wish????

    Did they offer you a videographer in addition to your photographer???

     

    Thanks!

        Hi girls - I have just recieve an email from Karla stating that she is still my WC even though the last email I got was from Maria about 4 weeks ago!  Its 2 weeks tomorrow til we fly out.  She has just emailed me the spa brochure and pics of the flower options which i requested months ago!

         

        Like some of you, I was told by Karla months ago that I was staying in Coba, but she has just told me we are now staying in Akumel as it is exclusive to First Choice in the UK, even though it wasnt in April 2010 when we booked it.

         

        Is Akumel just as nice as coba??  Im sure it is, but jsut panicing a little now as its not long til we go!!

          Hi Girls.....just wanted to say we booked Tulum as right from the start I wanted to get married in the Gazebo, I even contacted the resort before I booked the holiday to confirm I could have the venue I wanted.  However 2 months ago I get an email from Jasmin at Tulum to say that as of May 2011 all First Choice bookings would be now allocated in Akumal section....I got straight on the phone as that isn't what I booked....long story short....stick to your guns if you dead set on where you want to stay, I did & now have confirmation that all of our party (51 people) will be staying in Tulum, I don't think any part is any better than the other, they all look beautiful but if its what you booked & what you want then you have to let them know.

           

          Oh & guess what??  OUR TICKETS CAME TODAY......eeeeek so excited!!

            Alrighty girls who have been there already for your weddings, I have a few questions. I know when we get there we should have. Letter from the WC stating when we are to meet the next day. Is it just me and my fiancĀ© that meet or do our witnesses come too? Also, do we get to have a rehearsal? Or do we have to wing it? I'm not really a wing it kind of girl so I'm just curious if I need to prepare myself for that. Also, when we do meet with the WC is that when we let her know how many bouquets we want and flowers forthe guys and everything? How do we save our music if we are bringing our own? She's so slow to reply I figured I would just ask you girls here! We are wanting to do a welcome dinner the first night in one of the buffets, how do we get seating for 50 peole together at the buffet? Do we need to give the buffet some notice so they can reserve an area or what? Well I think those are all of my questions for you ladies today! Thanks in advance!! Amy

              Hello ladies!

               

              About 3 weeks to go until I head down to the Riviera Maya. I just had a question about what I should do with my reception/ceremony decor, favors, guest book.  Do we give those things to the WC on the day of the ceremony or give it to her beforehand?

               

              Thanks in advance!

                futurewifey2011,

                 

                If you are having a legal ceremony, your witnesses will attend your meeting with the WC, otherwise, it is just you and your fiance.

                 

                There are no rehearsals...but don't be concerned. Your WC will guide you along the way and everything will be fine.

                 

                Have all the info for the WC ready for your meeting. She will have a file with all of your email correspondences and decisions and will go over everything with you. If you have photos of your desired bouquets, decorations, cake toppers, place cards, seating charts, music, sand ceremony kit, whatever...bring it to your meeting.

                 

                Save your music on a CD...be sure to test it in various players just to be sure it works. Label the CD and the case!

                 

                Email your WC and ask her to reserve a place in the Buffet for your welcome dinner. Confirm that she has done this at your meeting.

                 

                Happy planning!!!

                Sunnyee

                  Linzi,

                  Omg Karla is back??!! whats going on??

                  I had Karla originally and found out through here that she had left. I now Have Maria.

                   

                  I would LOVE  to have Karla back she was great at responding and sending info etc..(fingers crossed i do to) Maria to be honest hasn't been as great in responding quickly -but she does seem very sweet and I'm sure will be great also-but you kinda get comfortable communicating with someone at those early stages and i was upset to lose Karla.

                   

                  I was confirmed in Coba by Karla but after Paloma confirmed Karla had left and passed me Maria  etc.. she informed to check with my tour operator which hotel we were in as we may be in Akumal, i emailed her back saying we were confirmed in Coba and forwarded the confirmation from Karla which i had received-

                  Paloma then informed me that 'First Choice' are contracted to Akumal as of MAY 2011 Irrelevant as we have this booked since May 2010, anyway long story short- First choice emailed Paloma confirming our request of Akumal and 'okaying' it etc.. so i had thought it was all sorted then a few days ago Maria emailed to say we are Akumal?? I replied immediately questing this and expressed i was upset and concerned as it was understanding i had all been sorted and that all my ringing and emailing around had been a waste of my time.

                  Haven't heard anything back-Surprise!

                  So also emailed Paloma who responded almost immediately telling we she had Previously  passed on my request to reservations and that maybe we are still in system as Akumal and she would get back to me etc..

                  Since then i have researched Akumal more and honestly do think it's just as Great so I've since had a word with myself not to get upset ,

                  i know from our previous holiday to here the whole resort is amazing but we stayed Coba club Premier last time and loved it so we got comfortable knowing we were to be in the same area.

                   

                  I'm sure you will love Akumal as much as Coba The whole place is great but I'm with you with how annoying it is when things change this close to going- If your anything like me i like to know in my head everything so it's hard when i dont know whats going on lol :0)

                   

                  I just cant believe Karla is back- Whats going on?!  Maybe i will get an email too :0)

                   

                  D xx

                    HI Ladies- reading a lot about people being moved to Akumal over their original bookings with Coba and/or Tulum
                    What is up with this? Do you not get to stay at the hotel you booked at? I dont understand this whole 'First Choice'

                    deal -?
                    We've booked for Tulum for Nov 2012 - does this mean closer to the date I shoudnt be surprised if they try to move us?

                      i dunno bout the other girls but i requested a rehearsal at the ceremony site. it's set for the day before my wedding, after my hair trial.. then were all booked in at the main buffet as our rehearsal dinner. my wedidng planner set all this up with my WC. so i'm sure it can be done if you ask well in advance.
