Meghan! I am sending my best and strongest positive thoughts of NO rain and a clear, perfect and gorgeous wedding day for you! Just stay positive and know everything will be amazing!

 

Sounds like everything is going great so far, minor mistake with the name, the harpist must have been totally worth a spelling error!

 

We'll all be thinking about you on your wedding day!!

Has anyone used the photographers the resort suggests? I hate to pay the 500 extra just to use one from outside. Also, my girls are wearing blue sapphire short dresses and I'm having a hard time deciding on the guys. My DH wants them to wear linen pants. Any thoughts?
I did the pearl package and built on to it. I'm having a welcome/cocktail reception and a reception after the wedding. I didn't use their flowers for the wedding party but I got hanging bouquets for the ceremony site. I got real touch flowers from Sharon Nagassar designs. I'm not using their centerpieces either.

I'm bringing a photographer from home. I had to pay for his trip and give him $1000 so all together we're paying like $2,200 for him to shoot for the whole weekend. We were going with one of the hotel photographers at first but it was going to cost $1,300 for 5 hours of coverage. If your photographer stays at the resort for 3 or more nights you don't have to pay teh $500 fee.

Maybe your GMs can wear Sapphire colored shirts and linen pants.

Is everyone getting married next year? Are there any 2012 brides around? I just emailed my TA and gave her al the info I needed to get me booked and started...I can't wait till that stuff is out of the way and I can start real planning. I'm reading a lot about people bringing their own photographers...are the resort people bad or is it just so people can have more pics?

YAY! You are going to be SO happy with Sharon! I love, love, love her work and she is so great to work with!

That is an amazing price for photography and not too big a difference price wise for a photographer you love.

Or Sapphire ties would be really cool!

I think that the packages with the resort photographers aren't too great for the price, at least that was my experience last year when I was looking into photography options. I have seen pictures of Caribe that are good, although I don't even know if they are still offered as an option for the resort.
