I'm actually bringing one from home now. I originally was going to use one in the area and when I asked the WC if it was at all possible to use an outside photographer she said only if they are a guests. So you have to have whoever you are using be staying at the resort so they (or you actually) are a paying guest. They get outside photographers there all the time and she said it's never a problem as long as they are a "guest" at the resort.

Thanks! Did you just ask the WC? When do I have to make the reservation?

Erica,

 

Thank you so much for all of your valuable information. I def feel I am grasping what items need to be addressed earlier on and what not to worry about...trying not to stress..but you have been there so I am sure I will survive as you did :) You and your guests looked full of smiles and happiness and that is all I want for my day :)

 

We are getting married Jan 16th, 2010. Many people are booking so it is really getting even more exciting. We are looking at around 45 like your group.

 

You did not discouarge me at all about the wedding beach party... I would totally love to have such a lovely party...it really looked like you guys had tons of fun. I just know we don't have to funds. Still not sure what we are working with as far as numbers so have to keep it simple until I get the final guest count, etc.

 

Now you said Gabriela made reservations for you and your party of 35-45 people at the a la cartes...how far in advance did you contact her to plan that out? Do you recommend certain restaurants over others? I was just thinking of making a reservation on Friday night and then having the wedding saturday. Let people make their own selection on Thurs and Sunday? What do you think of should I make them for everyone for all the nights? As for the welcome dinner...I don't mind everyone not sitting at the same tables...I just want to be together and make some announcements and give out our presents for the bridal party. Will they let us do that??

 

Let me know your thoughts?? Thanks again :)

Does anyone know how Barcelo does the pricing for a day guest? If we do choose to bring in a local photog from the area, do we only have to pay for the day pass, or do we have to pay for them to stay overnight?

You have to pay for them to stay overnight.

T&K--I haven't decided on my site just yet. I'm not going to get too terribly worked up about it, because Xhail will be showing us around the property when we meet with her, and I'm sure I'll know my wedding site when I see it. We have a small wedding party, 3 BMs and 3 Groomsmen, and a relatively small number of people going..roughly 20 or so.

I'm just ready to get married! I've decided not to stress the details too much, because I'm having a destination wedding for that precise reason, so I don't have to worry about things! I'll start panicking on the small stuff for my AHR. As long as my groom shows up, the way I see it, I'm in good shape!

To be honest.... I have no idea what was played :) How bad is that! I hired Kiko and Carlos Band and I left it in their hands... All I can say is that they were incredible!! I left it all up to them.. since they were the experts in the music department... but my one request was that Cannon in D was played as I walked doen the isle with my Dad.
