Jannae, I thought you would like to know this info. I heard from Ael about using outside photographer.

 

What she said the guest pass for one day for him will be $100 plus $200 (the $200 is a penalty fee for using an outside photographer) so in total $300! this seems crazy. so looks like even if we pay for Daniel Aguilar's stay at the Riu I would still have to pay the $200 penalty fee. I am emailing her asking for more clarification will let you know what she says.

 

Also I was not able to get any earlier dinner time than 8:30pm, whatever I wont stress over it, I will just have a cocktail hr with the mariachi band and then do the dinner at 8:30 pm. Right now I just see $$$ flying but I guess a wedding does cost a lot at the end of the day.

I'm not even telling her that we have an outside photographer...he is staying there for 4 days and I am absolutely not paying an extra amount. I am just going to tell her that one of our guests is a photographer if she asks.

Sammysgirl now that I think of it I should have said the same, pls let me know how it works out with your photographer and if you can get away not paying the extra amt!

 

Also where are you having your dinner and what time? just curious since the only option Ael is giving me is the brazilian restaurant.

I didn't mention that we had a photographer, since he was a hotel guest for 4 days. At the meeting the wedding coordinators didn't seem to care at all. They asked if I wanted the photographer and i said "no i have a friend who will take pictures" and they moved on to the next question, they didn't even blink.

 

Regarding the legal day- ours was fun: we went to city hall and both wore suits (i had a feminine white pinstripe skirt suit). We had our parents, grandparents and siblings. We didn't actually sign any paperwork but we said vows and exchanged rings. Then we popped champagne and went out to a fun dinner. It had a wedding-y feel to it, but i PROMISE you that it didn't make the actual wedding in mexico any less special. I think it added to the excitement!

Thanks for the honeymoon link Samira! I'm going to make that my mission to do this weekend. I cannot believe the inconsistencies of this resort. So frustrating. I have an email not from Ael, but the first contact gal that says if the photog is a guest, no fee applies. I would love to hear how it goes Sammysgirl, with you not saying anything about yours!

 

I would be more willing to do that, but ours is only staying the night... confused and a little pissed.... I already had to pay more per night for her only staying one night. Oh well, as you said Samira, wedding=money.

I well def. let you girls know how my meeting goes with Ael, I am planning to say exactly what Kimmy said. I will let you know if there is an extra charge or anything, but I plan to fight it tooth and nail if she tries to make us pay extra because we are paying for our guy to be there for 3 nights!

Hi Everyone!

 

hope you are all doing well

 

Katie your pictures are awesome-- very excited!

 

Sammysgirl - please do let us know how it goes with the outside photographer business...

 

I'm starting to freak out because when i originally asked them they said it was $100 outside fee per person, so $200 total.. not a big deal.. but now with all these added penalty fees.... its totally adding up! i have already booked and paid my deposit with Moments that Matter Photography based in Playa del Carmen so they don't need a room at the resort.. but i definitely DO NOT want to pay the 200 pentaly plus 100 or whatever it is for each them. I'm hoping to play dumb and just bring the email that Ael originally sent and say thats what you told me thats what i am paying... fingers crossed.

 

I'm also completely frustrated because my FI's family is being very reluctant about going to Mexico now.. saying they were afraid of the violence and that it wasn't a real wedding since its not legal. And to complicate matters even more me and my FI are going to Thailand in 2 weeks for our Thai blessing ceremony so people are like ohh well then you are already married.......

 

its just frustrating.

 

anyways hope you are all doing well.. take care!

Hi, I've been reading through this thread after I heard such good things about RPRM. Originally I was thinking of Iberostar Rose Hall in Jamaica, but they have been terrible at getting back to me and my TA. If any of the RPRM brides could provide me with a very general budget for their wedding, I would greatly appreciate it. Feel free to pm me. I think I'm ready to make the switch to Mexico :) Best of luck with all your weddings.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
