Like everyone else suggested... you should really TELL them what you want. Also try to use your TA as much as possible. My TA was awesome and talked to the resort directly rather than having me in the middle.

quick question about photogs
are we allowed to use a mexico photographer(not on their list) if we pay the 500??
i read somewhere that the outside photog cannot be mexico based?
but then i saw weddings with mexico photogs, like elizabeth medina
also, who are their photogs? caribe, matias and claudia? some ppl are saying shes on, others say she's not.
Thanks a bunch!

The reception was scheduled for 4:30 but we didn't get it started until around 5 because we were still taking pictures. We took pictures for about an hour but that felt rushed so I'd say anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours is enough time.
3) I would say start everything as early as possible. My ceremony was scheduled for 3pm and I started getting ready at 9am and was still late! My MOH started my hair at 10 (I had a weave done). She finished that around 12. Then I got my eyelashes done which took about 45 minutes to an hour. I then left the room and went to the spa to get a polish change. That took an hour and 15 minutes. I got back to the room at 2:15 and still had to get my hair styled, make-up done and get dressed. We finally walked out the room at 3:20. So all that to say while it seems like nothing should really take a long time, everything takes longer than it normally does on your wedding day. So for a 5:30 ceremony I'd say you should get started no later than noon.
Us women have it so bad. The day before our wedding there was another wedding at 4pm. The groom and groomsmen from that wedding were in the pool taking shots with us until 3:15. There's absolutely no way we could get ready for a wedding in 45 minutes!!!!
