    Hi Elisha

    I am using Playa Weddings (Playa Weddings - Video and Photography in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya). I felt their packages were quite reasonable. They were only a couple hundred more than the resort photographer and I get the negatives of my pictures which was important for me. They have been quick in resonding and seem very nice. They offer videography as well.
    Let me know if you decide to use them!

          Kind of a random question, but what are your mother's wearing? I wanted to buy my Mom her dress as a gift, and trying to find one for a destination wedding is harder than I thought!

              I have hired an outside photographer as well. Now am looking into booking a room for her. I am, along with all of my other guests, are all staying at the Palace. Do you think I need to book her a room at the palace as well or i can book her into the less expensive hotel, the beach/caribe? Anybody have any thoughts to this? Also, I havent heard from my Wedding coordinator for over a month now, anybody else hear from theirs yet?

                I debated on where to book my photographer as well, but decided the Palace. We decided for a little more money for him not to have to travel back and forth on the train he would probably be around to take more pictures...maybe not, but went back and forth on this one, but just felt better about it.

                  I am very confused of the hotel's policy on external photographer. Some brides said we need to pay $300, some said just book a room for 1 or 2 nights.

                    Hi ya

                    I had an email this week from Victoria it came from email address Bodas@barcelomaya.com. I replied and she came back to me on the same address so maybe its her direct email??

                    Dont know if this helps any of you trying to contact the hotel. I emailed Gabriela on weddings1@barcelomaya.com back in January but had no reply from this email!

                      I worked with Victoria for our wedding just last week and she was awesome. I didn't receive emails back for about a week each time, the 6 weeks before the wedding...It was hard, but patience was key. Even when we arrived I felt like I didn't have certain questions answered, but in the end it was all okay! Let me know if you have any questions.
