Amy F - I know you liked your cigar bar. Do you recommend it for the price? I'm thinking about surprising FI with it but I'm not sure how many people actually smoke. We don't regularly smoke but he does partake for special occasions and I thought they'd make great photo props. What comes with the package? Do they supply something to carry them in to take them home/save for later?

 

Also, you keep saying you're bored and all, but I can give you lots to do!!! wink.gif You can plan a get together for all us girls to vent and take shots since you missed that! Wouldn't that be something?!

Yeah, I'm totally compassionate when it comes to personal issues but in the end.....business is business and one business you don't mess with is a bride's business. :-( I'm hoping she turns things around for you. I've been more of a nervous wreck than usual, so I think I'll just keep searching. I was pulling for a US photog now more than ever since I see how accomodating they are. Most of their packages include 2 hrs the day before, the day of (8-12 hrs), and a TTD the following day. I haven't seen any Mexico based photogs offer anything remotely close yet. Big business in every country, I guess! :-)

If you want champagne just for the toast you can have that in addition to your signature drink which should be free for both.
Its so funny how everything is different. They brought me 2 glasses of white wine when I was getting ready for my wedding. Even down there - you might order a salad one night and its just mixed greens and dressing and the next night it has avocado, tomatoes, cheese, etc!

I would do it for that price savings! And if your Mom volunteered, let her work her magic! Just bring a couple spares and some tape & scissors in case you need to do any fixes. I cant wait to see this! You should defo post a thread in DIY for other brides too. Such a great cost savings.

I would totally suggest this! Then you would certainly get all of the pictures you want. I am still remembering things I wanted pictures of that I forgot - and I even had the Gold package w/ 8 hours of photos. The TTD is awesome b/c then you dont have to take so many pix after the wedding and you can mingle w/ your guests and get more wedding day pix with them. Probably the only thing I worry about is whether I got enough pix w/ family & friends.

AmyB, I meant to tell you earlier, I LOVED the dress you wore! I know you had two dresses, and I think you made an awesome decision--you looked gorgeous! :)

I have also hear many great things about Maroma Beach. I have a few friends who've gone to Secrets Maroma for their honeymoon and loved it. El Dorado (Azul's adult-only sister) also has a resort there that looks really nice.

Wow, AmyB is right, my how different things can be! We had glasses of champagne delivered to our room every single day! Usually 3 glasses at a time. And when I was getting ready they delivered us mimosas.

We brought ours with us and got a ton of coverage. When you take what we got and compare it to what the resort photogs offer, we came out at least the same and, in the case of one of their choices, better price wise. Andrew shot for us the entire wedding day (noon-11pm) and did a 4 hour TTD session the day after. If we'd had other events we wanted him at, he would have done those too. We also got all our pics on CD and a photo book was included.

You get so much more bang for your buck when you bring one!
