I also have a question. We are using the resort photog for our pictures of the wedding day and it is included in the package we are getting. I'm wondering if it is just his & the videographers time that is included in the package or do you get pictures & the video as well....or is it extra to purchase the pics & vid??

Thanks!!
it depends on your package...we are using the ultimate package and it includes two hours of photog time, a 30 min edited video, and 50 pics. you can also purchase the rest of your pics on a cd.

we are adding one or two hours of photog time at $250/hour...each hour includes an extra 50 pics.

mrs. timpone...i'm wearing a veil....when else can you do it?? :) :)

Im gettin married on the beach and if i do go with a veil its gonna be a cathderal veil. Although Im ok with the idea of just wearing flowers in my hair, but at the same time I really feel like a bride with the veil?! so confused! sad.gif

Did you ladies wear veils? Do you recommend I wear a veil?

I wore a veil, but it was very very windy. It kept flying over my head, so before I walked down the isle we tried to pin it to my dress. But once I got to the gazebo it was so windy it came undone. About half way through the ceremony my maid of honor ended up tucking the veil into the back of my dress. It was actually pretty funny.

We also used the resort photog, and our photos and video came with the package. The video guy deliverd our video to us the next morning, and the photog delieverd our photos a few days later to our honey moon resort. I forget how maby photos we got, but it was a pretty big album, and he also gave us like 8 big photos.

Hope that helps

Did you talk to Juan about the extra photo time or Cecilia? I have emailed Juan a few times and he told me the ultimate wedding package included 90 min of photo time, so I wanted to add more time but he hasn't e-mailed me back.

I had a death in the family and have not been on the destination forum for a while. I am excited to get back on!! Please excuse my choppy comments to previous postings.

 

When I saw the new beach I was so upset. I feel like it ruins the gazebo. So I completely understand! I am going to ask my photographer to angle the photos in a different direction and hopefully we won’t be able to see the rocks. I was even thinking asking them to set the chairs different (not quite centered) to keep it out of the photos. (I love the bridesmaid as a buffer idea)

 

We did a sight visit last November and although the Himitsu beach location is not as large or as intimate I liked it best for three reasons. It is right next to the beach bar. This means there are restrooms and a bar within a few feet. This is good for our fast drinkers and the elderly who can not walk all the way up to the hotel for the restroom. And secondly the sun sets on that side.

 

My wedding photographer is Pierre Violle. I am extremely excited about him. My fiancé “knows everything” about photography and so he picked him based on equipment and knowledge. We are also using him for a connote trash the dress session and I must say I am most excited about the trash the dress session. Pierre Visual Studio - Wedding Photography- Mayan Riviera- Playa del Carmen - Home - Wedding Photographer. He does have a lot of fish eye on his web sight but has a lot of equipment and is ok with little to no fish eye.

 

Lastly: Congratulations to all the new brides on here. There are some amazing ladies that come back after getting married to help us out. Thanks to them we can have the best weddings ever. I have also posted the link here that is for Dreams Brides to post their dates; I think its fun to see who is getting married the same month as you.

In regards to the Veil thing, I think it just depends on the day. I got married in June and some days it was Crazy windy up there...But on the day I got married, it wasn't bad at all. My veil was blowing around, but not too bad.

The one thing I did do was, I made sure I bought an inexpensive veil so if I couldn't wear it, it wasn't a big deal. You can always sell it on here if anything.

 

Sorry I didn't multiquote, But how much more time were you looking to get for Juan? He may have pricing on his website. You;d probably have to pay for a package of his, in addition to the one that comes with your wedding package.

He was with us for a little over 2 hours, most of which was his fault and he didn't charge us extra. We did wind up buying all 600 pictures that he took that day for $350.00.

Unless you are doing a TTD or you want him there for your reception, then I think you'll have plenty of time with him. Just don't expect to be at your Cocktail hour :)

I think what matters most is what YOU want. Don't let the weather make your decision. Do you guys remember ever seeing royal weddings. The maids sometimes would stand on each side of the bride behind her holding the veil/train. You could always do that while you walk up (if it doesn't seem too pretentious) if it's too windy and while you are saying your vows, wear it long enough to sneak some pics. Then take it off. And put it back on once you get somewhere where there's a break in the wind.

Same with Dream Flyers, these are like lanterns with candles you light up with a dream in and let fly away into the sky - does anyone know if you can bring them and set them off on the beach?

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
