I have a question about deposits with the photographer specifically. How did you make your deposit: check, cash, other? Our photographer suggested making the deposit in cash, but I wanted to check if this is common. Thanks!Click the image to open in full size.

Ali I paid my photog via paypal. That was the only form of payment that he accepted. I don't feel comfortable giving cash. How will you get a receipt? Will he send you an e-mail confirmation stating that you paid? I would just make sure that he gives me something stating that I paid a deposit.

I sent mine a check...I would not feel comfortable with cash unless I was actually there and could get a receipt

hi ali - all of my clients pay their retainers with check, cashiers check or cc. ive never had anyone pay with cash, but ive never asked. i have my ideas as to why someone would want cash but of course i dont have all the info - may just be cause it goes in as available money right away in their bank account, who knows. maybe theyve had some bad luck with retainer checks bouncing. thats never fun!

 

i would feel comfortable paying in cash but just make sure you get a receipt the moment you hand the cash to them - in person. this is with anyone, ever. i got ripped off once by my daycare. handed the gal cash and she later claimed i never gave it to her. hope she and her hubby had a nice dinner and a movie on me sad.gif popcorn.gif

 

hth. congrats on getting that big thing checked off your list!!!

I made my deposit via paypal. How would you even do cash? Do you mean like a wire transfer?? I would do something that is traceable that will generate a receipt.

I used Paypal as well. Its probably a good idea to ask them if they will accept another form of payment and suggest something like Paypal.

 

With the way the postal service runs in Mexico, the chance of an envelope with cash in it actually getting to them anyway is pretty slim.

We are meeting the photgrapher in person. It is someone who is reputable according to this forum. He gave a few options for paying including by check, but said he prefers cash. I just wanted to see if anyone else had ever paid like this before. We will probably pay by check. Thanks ladies.Click the image to open in full size.

Is it Juan? B/c if it's Juan then I would say okay. I am using Juan and he let me pay through paypal. But if I met with him in person I would have no problem giving him cash. If it's him then I'm sure he will give you a receipt if you ask.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
