We have a family friend who happens to be a photog! Thank god! We are paying for his trip for the week and like MrsVaughn2B have him at our disposal for the full week including a TTD session the next day! He is also super stoked which is really nice!

 

Final payment went in today, and it was a month yesterday to our I Do's! Yipee!

I know this is sorta off topic but Katie do you know any details about the Sky Deck?

 

Are guests allowed to hang out there while we do our photos? I don't want to do a separate cocktail hour due to $$$. I just can't figure out what to do with everyone in between ceremony (pictures) then reception?

 

Suggestions?

hmmm photos, you will soon discover on here, are a topic of hot conversation!! no-one can find out why Claudio is not on the approved list anymore but everyone is gutted. I have just emailed Tiffany (my WC) and asked her to provide me with a list of their approved photographers so I don't build my hopes up looking at lots of lovely photos by people we can't have!

did you go for the silver or gold package? we went for the gold as we thought it would work out cheaper because of the blood tests and photographer but if we don't like who's approved it could work out stupidly expensive if we have to pay the gold package and then the photographer on top!!

Cecilia Dumas has been spoken very highly of in another thread on this site - http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t35088 so take a look at that, but I have no idea if they are approved at the moment or not!!

plans are going slowly! as soon as I do something another 10 things I need to do seem to appear! I am dress shopping on Saturday (and hopefully buying), we've just put down a deposit for our reception when we come back to the UK, we're getting married on the Sky Deck so that bit of the wedding is sorted, and everyone (pretty much) is booked to come! but that's about it!!

how are your plans going??

hi Katie

We receivedan email from claudia to say the hotel have banned her from the site as clients were using her photography services over the resident hotel ones, as hers were miles better. After looking at the hotel ones she is so right they are rubbish. If you have at look at the karisma website on the wedding section it lists the two phoptographers they "prefer" have a look and see what you think.
We booked the silver package only because it was approx 700 pounds more for only 36 photos and blood test, we at the time though we could get a better deal.
At this moment in time we have our tour operator "thomson" fighting with the hotel to get us permission to use an outside photographer, i will keep you posted of how we are getting on.
We have them confirming also about the decorated wedding location included in the package we chose, according to the hotel all that is included in the price is a wooden isle runner, 12 chairs and a table with white linen, not the decorated location we hoped for. Apparently according to other people decorations are extra, such as sheers, hanging corsages for gazebo etc.
I wait in anticipation of a favoured response from thomson, then i will be one very happy b2b

I am going to have my hair done... I am useless at hair! LOL But I will do my own make up, I am super fair and though I wear a little on a daily basis, it is super easy to overdo it on me. I thought it would be safer to do it myself. Besides, i have heard mixed reviews on the make up. Some thought it was great, some didn't like it at all, so I'm playing it safe. Besides, what a great reason to take a trp to the newly opened Sephora!!!!smile72.gif

We fly from bristol on 8th. Our wedding is 14th May, getting excited now...

Who are you using for your photos !!

We looked at claudiaphoto.com and really liked her worked so we tried to engage her services but were told us she is no longer allowed to work on the azul hotel site.
We then looked at elizabeath medina who has excellent work, unfortunatley she proved to be too expensive for us.
At the moment we have enquired about the services of Cecilia Dumas, but are awaiting a reply from the hotel.

How are your plans going !!!


Claudia is allowed to photograph at Azul, you just have to pay Azul a $500 fee.

Hi ladies,

Tiffany sent me this info about the dimensions of the fabric. Is this the same thing? I'm not really a math person!

"The sheets of fabric for the Beach Gazebo and Canopy should measure 42.65 feet. The set up fee is $100 and is payable on site with cash only."

    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
