    Okay so myself and my wedding planner have been emailing arrecife and not getting a clear answer back. when the manager finally emailed me (we were inquiring about booking the video of ceremony) he told me they could do video service from 2pm of me getting ready, the ceremony and photo session "behind the scenes" with a 5% discount it'd be $700USD!!!!!! Are you effin crazy?! That's not what I want nor what I was orignally told. I emailed him back and said I ONLY want a video/DVD of the ceremony and was quoted before at $400USD. and asked if he could honor that price and JUST film the ceremony to show our friends and family at home. he hasn't gotten back to me yet (i realize their busy and take awhile-- it is mexico afterall ha ha) but will they let me just book it in person when I get down there on Oct 28th?? Or do i need to book in advance? i just feel like explaining in person will be much easier than emailing back and forth and not getting a clear answer outta them. Also, I DO NOT want to pay 700 bucks for a video when I only want like 25 min of coverage not 3 or 4 hours whatever it was, I was only expecting to pay 400!!! grrr! please if any of you did the video let me know how much it was and what they covered, and can i wait til oct 28 to book it in person?? [my wedding is nov 2nd]

     

    thanks!!!

          Hey, dunno why my first quote didn't work! 

          Awesome aquamanic!  I am booked for a May 26th ceremony, but I will be arriving at the resort on May 21st.  I reserved my wedding day back in May, luckily I was the first person to do so.  Jazmin is my wedding coordinator and she has been GREAT so far and has answered my emails within 24 to 48 hrs....but there have been some days where she has answered several emails within a couple of hours.

          I would just be as detailed when you do ask questions and when the answer that is given doesn't make sense ask again! LOL  Basically from reading this thread I came up with a bunch of questions to ask and she did a good job in answering them.

            Have you tried sending a message to the sellers on etsy? a lot of times they can do multiple ones but only show 1 available on the listing

              I had a video done of just the ceremony (keep in mind this was over a year ago now!) I had inquired about price with the WC and she told me $400. When we arrived, we confirmed with Arrecife what we wanted and they told us it was $500. We mentioned that we were quoted $400 and they honoured that price. They arrived about 15 minutes before the tram picked us up and did a couple of shots of me getting ready, filmed the ceremony and a few shots of us getting our pictures taken after the ceremony. Just thinking about it makes me want to go home and watch it again! Definitely worth the money...although not for $700!

                Thats awesome. And ya $700 is way over my budget. See I don't want any shots of me getting ready or pictures afterwards, just the ceremony. I'm hoping he gets back to me soon, making me nervous lol

                  What about them wilting in the heat?  Are real flowers the way to go?

                    StylishmeNC - Eugenia is my co-ordinator as well I am booked to get married the day before you - March 30, 2012 at 3pm and I am having the same problems.

                    My last 4 emails over the last 3 weeks are still not responded to... and yes I am getting nervous too.

                     

                    I just keep hearing that she is amazing at pulling everything togther on the day and try to let that settle my worries... but it is hard to wait.

                     

                    I have all of the info she sent me - and have booked everything - am just waiting on a couple answers and confirmation everything is booked and a go. So if you need any information let me know - I can forward it to you too.

                     

                    Good luck in your planning LindsayDS

                      Hey Lindsay,

                      Its at least good to know that I am not the only one with this issue! And like you said, its just really hard to wait.

                       

                      If you don't mind sending me the information you have that would be fantastic! My email is jillblecha@gmail.com

                       

                      If you don't mind me asking, what are all your plans? Wedding location? Dinner? Are you doing a pool side reception? etc etc :)

                       

                      Thanks,

                      Jill
