So, I was going to chance it and use the resort photographer.

However, after seeing the pics and showing them to FI, I wasn't very impressed. They just seemed OK (won't tell you what FI thought of them). Anyways, yesterday, with just 8 days before we leave for Cancun, I decided to try to find a photographer. Thanks to everyone who has ever posted about photographers. I sent a bunch of inquiries and ended up booking Agustin Murillo from Cancun Studios (Jill's husband). Jill is going to charm Claudia for me since they've worked together before and I haven't told Claudia my change in plans. It's not like she would even respond before I get there anyways!!!

Thanks everyone for all your reviews. When I get back, I will post a full review (sorry, probably won't get around to doing a planning thread in the next week).

On a side note, I can't wait to be in Mexico. I've been SO stressed the last few weeks with last minute details. Unfortunately, that has caused me to eat more lately and break out! Also, the 10 day forecast is showing showers for the next Wed - Fri. I really pray it doesn't rain the entire time we are down there. That will SUCK.
Good luck with the wedding. i am sure the weather will be fine. The showers are usually brief if any at all. Just concern yourself with things you can control!! Anyway, we will be thinking of you and look forward to your review...

Hopefully they don't give you trouble with your Photgrapher!! Something tells me you will make them see it your way! hahahaha :-)
Too right she's got until Friday before I start bugging my TA to sort it lol

My thoughts exactly!!! Let me know how you get on with the outside photographer you'll probably be back and let me know before Claudia replies lol

You can rent a screen and projector and of course they charge an arm and a leg, I can't remember how much though.

Hey, I dont know if anyone covered this yet, but has anyone tipped the wedding coordinator (Claudia or Gaby?) For those who have not had a wedding there yet, have you thought about tipping them? If so, how much would you recommend. I hate to say this, but the WC's at Dreams Cancun seem more like sales people that you cant get ahold of rather than a WC who is trying to HELP you plan a wedding on a certain budget. Honestly, I was thinking that if they dont negotiate with me at all, then they will get no tip at all. However, if they knock off like $1000 bucks somehow, then the WC may get a nice hefty tip. What do you all think?

From what I have read on the forum, most WCs do not get paid much at all and are SO overworked and overwhelmed. I have gotten for Gaby a Clinique Happy gift set and then I will probably tip her between $75-$100 depending on how things are once we get there. Hope this helps a little bit.

Thanks so much for sharing!! They have a ton of things to do. I didn't realize it was that much.

Also, did you get your makeup done by the spa? Do you know if you need to bring your own makeup or if they have it? My MOH is wondering if she should make sure to bring everything or not.

Thanks Again!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
