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!

Gemma xx

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!

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

    • this topic is so nice. the sikh wedding cards are most important. when the wedding ceremony in Sikh.
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
