Everyone, thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it and it helps me sort some things out.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions about resources for writing up the ceremony??

 

 

 

 

 

 

how exciting!!

 

I actually used the forum to write my ceremony.  this thread is AMAZING!!  it took me awhile to get through it all but it was well worth it!

I am getting married next saturday 8.28 at Dreams Cancun and I have a question about the photographer.  We have the Ultimate package and didn't purchase an additional package.  This apparently includes 50 photos and an album.  How long is Juan Navarro there with you?  Do you get photos when you are getting ready or just of the ceremony?  Does he stay throughout the reception?  When I meet with Claudia when I arrive, can I request additional photos or get a CD of all the pictures added on?

 

That is the only thing that I am really worried about.  I was very relaxed with it up front and now I am thinking that maybe I should have asked a few more questions.  :)

 

Any advice you have would be very much appreciated!!

I think there are a couple of options for additional hours.  We are adding two hours as well, but we chose the ones that don't include as many pics as posted above.  Our's is $250 per additional hour.  Also many of the brides on here comment that once they receive their pics and album, they are offered the cd with all of the pics for $500...DONT pay this amount!!  EVERYONE i've talked to says to negotiate, and most brides get the cd for around $300

Thank you!  That is very good advice.  I also think once I tip him I will have a little more negotiating power.  I apprecaite all the advice.  This really helps me make a decision.

Thank you so much! I am just a little confused in how it works. I am sending my save the dates tomorrow and my wedding isn't till May of next year. If people start booking before i send out my invites i should still send them an invite right? Hope it's not to much to ask. Thanks in advance!!

Yes!  For sure send them an invite!  In fact, I was arguing the other way around, our wedding is in 3 months and I only wanted to send the invite to those who booked.  I figured if they're not going, why spend the $4 each invite is costing me....in the end I compromised.   Those that are going get the whole invitation suite, maps, reception details, etc.  Those who haven't mentioned anything about going at this point, only get a flat card announcing our invite.

 

What I learned though, is that irregardless of if they're going or not, people will be offended if they don't get an invite.

To who it may concern, I got 10 extra guests for not having cocktail, but I've heard of girls getting more guests for other things (not using mariachi).  I didn't get that option however (I got two hours of sound system though).

 

I am also on the fence about the invites.  I am not sure who to send them too.  I don't want to offend people, but I also don't want to push people who really do not want or cannot afford to go.

 

More weddings!  Congrats ladies.  I have to keep living vicariously through all of you lucky soon to be brides!

I know they get a full they package which includes a CD with all pictures taken, then you do not have to pay additional charges for CD, extra hours, or something else, you must look for a full package and then you won't worry about if the photographer will be while you are getting ready, at the end of the ceremony, etc!

 

Good luck!! Claudia is amazing!

 

Ivan!

I can't say enough great things about her!  She responds to emails the same day, no matter how many millions of emails I send.  Her prices are awesome.  I'm getting really tall flowers for each table for $50 each, the resort quoted me $150 each.... she gets good reviews on here too and can basically find and figure out anything your heart desires...she's awesome <3

 

Thank you so much ... I sent her an email.. cecilia quoted me 280 for the centerpieces i want.. thats insane!!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
