1. We used Sarani Photography/Videography. They are amazing and professional. She gave us a $4000 discount and an extra hour to make up for the cost of the outside vendor fee.

Here's my pics and video...

2. We did a group excursion to Xcaret which is absolutely amazing. Make sure to stay for the night show. We used the excursion Kiosk near the exit at Sensatori.

3. We stayed 5 extra days after our wedding and did not switch hotels .

 

Lastly, if your looking to rent decor or purchase party favors, stuff to put in welcome bags and so on. Everyone including me uses Katy. She lives in Playa del CARMEN and has great prices . Here's her Facebook link.

Hope this helps.

@@LRosario Thank you so much! Your photos are beautiful! You said they discounted you 4000? Do you mind if I ask what package you had and what the cost was? Trying to budget appropriately for photos!

@@kat5849 I'm also a May, 2017 bride!

 

I'm flying my phorographer down with me.. it is a much cheaper option for me and it makes me comfortable to know I'll be getting quality photos :) the resort waives the vendor fee if they stay for three nights.

 

My FH and I are staying 7 nights at the resort - 3 nights after the wedding for our honeymoon.

 

I've been to Riviera Maya several times and highly recommend the Mayan ruins in Tulum as an excursion! Also loved Xcaret.

@@kat5849 we might as well plug ourselves. check out our website at http://www.jasminandmatt.com

 

OH and just to clarify, the resort doesn't waive the outside vendor fee if your photographer is a guest. They AREN'T allowed to charge it. We've stayed at resorts for the minimum 2 night stay because it ended up being cheaper than the outside vendor fee. This was at Barcelo though and not Azul.

 

*edit* the reason we wanted to clarify this ^^^ is because we truly feel that a lot of the times certain resorts take advantage of their clients, whether it be brides or just standard guests. We've NEVER had a bad experience at any of the Azul resorts. They are beautiful hotels and the staff are incredible but some of their policies are "unfavorable" in our opinion.

@@kat5849 The resort is very nice. I visited last October before booking and it is very kid friendly if you plan to have children at your wedding. That was the main reason I chose this resort out of the others. The one downside to the resort is that the beach is very small and is rocky at some parts. My wedding is in May 2017 as well and i am in the process of figuring out decor which many of the ladies have suggested using Katy from Love and Lace

Thank you! I dont mind your plug at all I love to know photographers personal experiences with the hotel as obviously I dont want to run into any problems! I have added you to my research list :) My sister in law is a wedding photographer here so she is going to be my "artistic eyes" as Im kind of clueless! I appreciate your input! 

 

@@LRosario $400 makes way more sense! Thank you! 

 

@@Sweetness14 Thank you! Yes we will have some kids. I have heard about the beach but sadly my options were quite limited. I have celiac disease as does about half my family among other allergies to we very much wanted to pick a resort that would be safe for us to eat at, which is quite the challenge! Do you mind if I ask how long you have been planning? We just landed on may 2017 this week as the fiances dads health isnt great and we did not want to risk waiting till 2018. Hoping I can pull it all together in 7 months!

@@sarahjayne07 I just received the email regarding the outside vendors. They didn't mention Love and Lace or any Florists by name but it's obvious who they are talking about

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
