Yes - However, only if your group is adventurous. The ziplining is high above the jungles - we had a 9-yr old part of our group and he had a blast!
Another great trip was Xel-ha - it's an eco-park...siteseeing, tubing, snorkeling, cliff jumping, etc!

Both are GREAT!

I have a picture of my cake. I'll upload it when I get home. It was like a sheet cake with another rectangle on top. Nothing fancy at all. Mine was vanilla with strawberries. it tasted good. I didn't care much at all about the cake and just wanted whatever was in the package.

There are pictures of the cakes in all the documents uploaded in this thread.

What is your question about the photos?

Ooh thanks Morgan I would love to see your cake, I'm just really interested in seeing what it will be like as I don't tend to like surprises - I'm a bit boring like that ;-)

 

My question about photos? I am looking for a wedding photographer if that what you mean or I was asking about seeing a photo of the wedding cake the Hotel does?

 

Thanks

are you asking about the hotel photographer? Or looking for another wedding photographer? I don't suggest the hotel photographer at all.

I ended up flying someone in for my wedding. It was a great way to get a lot of coverage of the weekend. We had a blast with pictures.

I don't recommend my photographer though. She is known as <photographer named removed> around here.

Have you checked out the BDW photographers? There are some great ones.

Or are you looking for someone local?

The cake looks yummy and you both look lovely - beautiful dress.

 

Oh what a shame the name of the photographer has been removed. I have received an excellent quote from Bluelenscaribe Photography and their pictures look beautiful but no-one including the Hotel seems to have heard of them which worries me! I am getting quotes in at the moment and am awaiting one from Cecilia Dumas. I had one from Mellisa Green and would LOVE her to shoot our wedding but she is just out of our budget sadly. It;s quite difficult chossing when you are so far away.

oh no, it's not a shame. I would not recommend this photographer to anyone. the pictures were great but she was too difficult to deal with.

I wrote something about blue lens caribe on another thread where you posted their site. i would be cautious dealling with them because you don't know who you will get. They have a whole team of people. You don't know whos work you are seeing on the site. the person they send to your wedding could be bad.

Flying someone in was way out of my budget. I finally increased the budget & I'm so happy I did. Pictures were just too important to me. Flying someone in was also a great way to get a whole lot of coverage. We got pictures of our guests on a trip to coba. then we did a trash the dress in a cenote. we had pictures from the whole day at the wedding, and a trash the dress with my friends the next day. it was a blast. Before increasing my budget, I was going to have 3 hours of photography. I know I wouldn't have been happy after the wedding. Going cheap on photography was the only regret I was having. I did everything else cheaply (no reception, $200 dress, DIY everything, non-upgraded hotel room, etc.) Once I increased my photography budget I had a huge sense of relief. So i could tell it had really been bugging me.

But, it varies by person. Photography is something I really love so for me it was worth upping the budget. I had gone under budget on so many things, too.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
