We actually purchased our own organza and it was about 50 buxs. Its more than enough to cover the gazebo from the measurements they gave us ....heres the website we used

Photographers- who are you using and what coverage time are you having? I'm really not sure how long they are needed for can you help?huh.gif?

 

Also does anybody know the dimensions for the sheer for the gazebo near pier? As i'm thinking of taking my own, to get the right colour and save money, Is anyone else doing this?

 

What other things are people taking to cut the costs?

 

Chong can you send me the templates- michellec76@btinternet.com

 

Thanks ladies msnwink.gif

Thanks ladies you've been helpful, as I'm from the uk bringing a photographer with me is out of the question (too expensive), our wedding is at 3pm so it very early and will need photographer for along time so I get the getting ready shots.

Maggie I know what you mean about the expensive for half hour, but hay-ho the things we do for good photos!

I remember talking about the sheers a long time ago - don't forget to check what they charge you to put them up.  I can't remember what it was but it may affect your decision.

I used Moments that Matter photography (forum members).  I did a review on them and highly recommend them.  I had them for the day and 3 hours for a TTD the following day.

Hi Herbie - Bringing your own photographer doesnt necessarily mean bringing them from home, it just means youre not using someone based in Cancun.  For example, a few of us are "bringing a photographer", but she lives in Florida (none of us live there or have even met her).  I'm pretty sure this is the same thing Taylor and some of the other girls did with Andrew.  I thought bringing our own would be too expensive also, but its amazing some of the deals photographers are willing to make when they are working on extending their clientele and experience.  Or if they just love to travel!!

I just booked for July 30, 2011 at Azul Beach!  We're anticipating about 30 guests.  Does anyone have recommendations on when to reserve rooms?  We aren't working with a travel agent.

welcome4.gif  I was married at AB in April!  You will LOVE it!  So small and intimate.

 

Is there a specific reason you're not working with a TA?  They're a bride's best friend when it comes to the travel portion of things.  The TA can probably get you better rates and promos than you can get on your own, and they'll be the liaison between you and your guests when it comes to travel stuff.  The last thing you'll have time to deal with are guests' room changes, date changes, flight changes, and nit-picky requests.  Trust me, all those things will happen!  Just trying to save you some stress down the road... 

 

AB is tiny, so reserve your rooms as far in advance as possible or it WILL sell out.  Happy planning!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
