Thanks for the info! I wish they provided more information about the reception areas.  I have seen some pics on previous posts so that has helped! this website is such a lifesaver!

 

on another note, i just booked Gonzalo Nunez as my photographer.  Although the outside vendor fee is ridiculous! Was anyone able to get that waived?

 

Also thanks to NikkiT for the cake and flowers catalogue, the options seem kinda plain tho! I will have to find a picture of something i like since they said they can pretty much do whatever we ask for. 

 

Do they also have a catalogue for centerpieces?

 

I tried on a couple wedding dresses today for the first time. Found some that were absolutely beautiful! Are you girls going with a full gown?

MrsAl -

 

I am having an outside photographer come in too. First she quoted me like 200 bucks or something crazy like that. When I complained, she said I would only have to pay the guest day pass which was like 75 or 90.. something like that. I will have to print out my emails and take them with me to make sure she dosent charge us!!

Well she told me that "that is cost" so i asked her about the day pass. That's awesome that you don't have to pay as much. hopefully she will do the same for me! Yes print those emails!

 

She hasn't responded back yet so im keeping my fingers crossed

If she tells me it's $300, I'm going to take some screen shots from this website and send them to her - if other people are paying $90, why should we pay $200?

Ariadna quoted me 400$ for the outside vendor fee when I first asked her about it last year in June... suddenly, they're down to about 90$ for the day pass so that's not too bad!

 

We are flying down our photographer with us... we have to pay for her package (which is about 1600$) plus her travel. Since we have over 22 guests, our travel agent got us her trip for free, but we have to pay for the taxes on her trip (297$) plus the extra for her to have a room to herself (which was  another 360$) ... so really it's expensive but not nearly as expensive as hiring a photographer in Mexico, paying their package PLUS the outside vendor fee.

 

I'm telling you.. it's all about money down there!

 

Today I just came back from a party store that was offering 20% off all wedding accessories so I got 6 white pom pom decorations and I also ordered 12 paper lanterns (purple and fushia) for 3.60$ each minus the 20%.. So I think I got a decent deal!

 

Here's a pic of the pom pom decorations... I got 3 in a pack for $6.39 plus tx. I know I could have made them myself but I couldn't be bothered!!

Ana quoted me $300 for the vendor fee.  I'm really annoyed that different prices are being quoted to different people.  I guess they don't think we all communicate with eachother. 

 

I'm in flower mode right now and I'm starting to question the prices they're giving.  i sent her a few pictures of orchid bouquets and she said she would have to ask her florist for a quote but she thinks its going to be expensive.  It's alittle upsetting to think I won't be able to get exactly what I want.  However, I refuse to pay more than $60 per bouquet.  It's just way too much money to spend on flowers that are just going to get thrown away. 

 

Also, I'm not sure if they have new centerpiece photos.  I wasn't thrilled with any of the pictures they sent me last time.  We're thinking of designing our own and just bringing the supplies down with us.  It will save us a ton of money and at least we will be able to do what we want.

Ok ladies..

 

Here is a copy of the email between me and Ariadna about the outside vendor fee... this was around the time that the resort put a surcharge on the lobster and I was pissed! Her response is first then my first email is under it.

 

 

 

Dear Alison,
Don´t worry if you booked your Wedding before, you donâ€t have this fee.
About the outside photographer only you need to pay the day pass $95usd per person no the fee $200usd.

Ariadna,
I am very dissapointed that the surcharge for the lobster dishes is not going to be waived for my fiance and I. We have not booked out trip yet but we did book our wedding package. We booked this package at your resort  based on amenities that the Valentin offered. Now those amenities are being taken away after I booked my wedding.
And I agreed to pay the outside photographer fee with no problems. Even though I know Lupita waived the fee for other brides recently. That is not fair but I didn't argue.  I am extreamly dissapointed and upset and hope the Valentin will reconsider and waive the fee for the lobster pot for my fiance and I since we already put money down.

Ugh, we just booked our photographer. I thought the fee was $90. Fi will not be happy if it's 200 or 300, nor will I! I hope she sticks to the $90 for everyone.

I too am getting annoyed of the inconsistency from wedding to wedding, although I am happy for those who don't have to pay the high vendor fee.  It's just that it is an outrageous price regardless. Anyway, this is the email Ariadna sent me, below it is the email i sent her:

 

Yes, this is right but right now all the weddings reserved in 2011, need to pay a fee because we have a contract with Blue Lens.

 

Best Regards

Ariadna,

I have read that you allowed some people to pay for a guest past for their outside photographers.  Would you allow this for me?

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
