    Hi, I'm considering iberostar for my DW and was wondering what kind of outside vendor fees for photography/hair/makeup. Thanks!

      The outside vendor fee for a photographer is $500.  I booked Fine Art Studio so I will be paying the outside vendor fee.  The Iberostar switched to a new photography company called Photo Pro (www.photo-pro.com.mx) in December but I didn't check them out since I already booked my photographer. 

       

      I'm not sure about the outside vendor fee for hair and makeup.  Alejandra is the wc and you can contact her at weddings.playacar@iberostar.com.mx

        If the hotel offers the service, then they will apply an outside vendor fee. Since they have a hair salon and spa at the hotel, I am positive that having an outside vendor come onto the presmises will either cost you the outside vendor fee, OR you just have to pay the day pass for your stylist (I think it's $50 or $100).

         

        I know a lot of girls have just gotten their stuff done on 5th avenue (5 min. cab ride from hotel). There are a lot of really nice salons there

            I had to buy my hair/make up day passes which were $50. Also had to buy for the DJ in case you are hiring outside for that too!

              Hi! I am trying to decide whether to book at the Grand Palladium Colonial, OR Iberostar Tucan. Wedding package costs are the next factor we need to look at, would you mind sending me a copy? Would be very much appreciated! :)

                  That is Alejandra's e-mail address.  She is my wedding coordinater at the Quetzal.  She has been extremely helpful with every question I have had (and there have been a ton!  LOL!)  I would send you my list, but I booked last year and from my understanding the prices have gone up so it's probably best you get the proper pricing directly from the source. 

                  I was really nervous about doing a destination wedding for fear of communication problems, but I can't say enough how extremely helpful she has been.  If there is anything you want that they do not have she will get you pricing for it from an outside vendor that they work with (like our light up dance floor!!).  We are getting married on June 1st, so if you have any questions about planning or small details I will happy to fill you in, but my prices may be a little less since they are 2012 prices!

                  Congratulations and happy hotel hunting!

                    Hi Ladies,

                    So we want to do maracas for our favor, but I am planning on buying them in Playa del Carmen when we get there so I do not have to travel with them.  Anyone have any advice on this?  Do you think I will find them easily and reasonably priced? 

                    Any info will help!

                    Thanks!

                      Hi Future Mrs. Thomas!

                       

                      I'm the future Mrs. Berg (fiance is from chi-town like you). We're getting married there on the 15th and I concur...i LOVE Alejandra. Our travel agent went and did a site visit, met Connie and Alejandra and said they were a dream. I can't wait to meet them in person.

                       

                      Anyways, my fi and I are planning on gathering everything from 5th Ave. like yourself in regards to Maracas and little nic-nacs. from what I've read, there are vendors everywhere on 5th and you can negotiate prices. It's only a 5 minute cab ride (or 20 min walk) from the resort.

                       

                      Question: Are you mailing stuff down to Alejandra or are you just packing it and flying with it? I've been collecting a ton of stuff to bring down there (it keeps accumulating...haha), but can't decide which would be better.

                       

                      Take care! It's so close I'm so excited :)

                       

                       

                      -Jessica
