Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Ok so here is my dilema...... A friend of mine is a semi-pro photographer who is trying to build her resume so i suggested flying her in the day before my September 25 wedding and having her be my photographer for the wedding.

 

I guess my question is should I pay for the wedding package with the prints included and just use Juan as my photographer?? How long does Juan usually stay with his brides? I would love for my friend to come and take the pics that way we get a few days worth of pics. OR should i just save the $$ and go with Juan??

 

What do you Dreams brides think?

I sent an email to Claudia a few months back telling her I didn't want to use Juan because i was going to fly my own photog in from Canada & Claudia responded back telling me there were NO outside vendors allowed & told me how great of a photographer Juan is. I was very disappointed as i am pretty sure i wouldn't have been the first to bring in a photographer. Weird how they always have different responses for different brides? sad.gif

Regardless I cancelled my photographer...

 

Anyway, before you cancel out Juan i would check with Claudia about briniging in your own. She may let it happen but she didn't for me so I am using Juan for the wedding day & a Cancun photographer for my TTD a couple days later.

I'm not positive, but I think if the photographer is also a guest at the hotel, they can't stop them from taking pictures. I believe StarfishBride2010 said she flew in a photographer for 4 days and used her instead of Juan.

Yes I told Cecilia that my photographer was a paying guest and she didn't make me pay a vendor fee at all. No one told me I couldn't have her there. They actually were really accommodating with my photographer...letting her go back into areas of the resort to get shots for my book, etc. Cecilia was very accommodating. Not sure why Claudia would tell you that.

Hi Ladies,

 

I flew my photographers down there so I'm also quite confused why Claudia would have said that. I had Claudia as my WC and I told her I was opting out the photography, but I didn't tell her why and if anyone asked I would tell them that they are my friends just taking pictures. They didn't say anything during the ceremony or reception about them taking pictures.

I don't know why she told me no outside vendors...they seem to be so random with the answers to requests we have. She didn't even give me the option of paying an outside vendor fee. It was "No outside vendors, We have a great resort photographer" with a link to juans website. Bizarre but all water under the bridge as i could care less anymore....I just want to be in Mexico NOW!!!!! :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
