I'm in the same boat as you, we have a tight budget but want to stay at least a week after. You actually have to be there FIVE days b4 w/ legal. 4 full business days and the day your arrive does not count! Do you know if the day you arrive counts for symbolic? Meaning, do you arrive 2 or 3 days before?
    i belive 2 days...we're getting there 9-22 and getting married 9-24 BUT now that you say that i'm gonna email cecilia just in case, wouldnt want to do all this planning and miss it bc of a day, lol!! hot siggy btw

      Just wondering if anyone has used the resort photographer?? Our plan was to take a photographer with us but now due to some problems that won't be happening so I have to use the photographer that comes with the package

      I still would like to have a TTD shoot the next day. Does anyone know any photographers in Mexico that would do a beach TTD for around $1000??

      Thanks :)

        we're doing the resort photog...there are reviews on here about him and they're all good. as for the TTD, I've gotten several quotes for beach sessions around 500-700. of course it depends on the photog. i love love love del sol but they are way out of our price range!! there are a few helpful threads on here for you!

          Would you possibly be able to email me a couple of the beach session quotes for 5-700 so i can try contacting some of the phototgraphers.....thats about all we can spend and I really want to do the TTD. If its too much trouble, no worries...i'll do some searching. My email is melbc80@hotmail.com just incase...thanks!

            Nevermind...I had nothing better to do at work & googled some photographers. Has anyone heard of or used Cancun Wedding Photography or all-about-photography? I think they are the same company...anyway, they do a TTD session for under $1000 so i'm stoked. I hope they are good :)

              Ok, let me know ok? Thank you for the compliment! You have Cecilia? Claudia is the one that replied to my request, does that mean I'm probably with her? It's just that I hear Cecilia does better trades, so I was kind of hoping for her. I guess who knows, Claudia may do some good trades too. Does everybody seem to like all the coordinators the same?

              Wow, August huh, that seems like it will creep right up on you before you know it! Can't wait to see pics. Oooh, if you get the video will you try to show it on here? Thanks again!

                I asked TA Jill and you don't have any time requirements when doing a symbolic wedding so thats good!! Yeah I think the WC who contacts you is your WC, but from what I've read lately, neither one really do much trading so we'll have to hassel a bit

                It's actually Sept but I will definately post tons of pics and give a link to the video :) :)

                  I have been working with Cecilia and she has been awesome as far as trades. I haven't worked with Claudia at all. I'm not sure why you ladies aren't getting the trades you have asked for. Maybe you have to spend a certain dollar amount on your wedding before they become more flexible I don't know just a guess.

                    I think i read on here that you traded your photog for stuff, but we're using the resort photog so thats a no go for us. we have the ultimate package...what else have you been able to trade if you dont mind me asking?

                    BTW ladies, I've noticed that since the new year Cecilia is very quick in responding to questions, so don't worry once your wedding gets closer the communication is great!

                      I agree communication has been great. We have also gotten some additional guests over 20 at no additional cost for not using the mexican trio. We chose to eliminate the Mexican trio and we also are upgrading our cake to a larger cake and she isn't charging us anything additional. The photographer was a huge cost and trade in as we got the sound system from 6-11 at no cost for not using the resort photographer. Hope that helps.
