We also looked at Del Sol, Cecilia Dumas, Dino Gomez, and Claudia Rodriguez. You could also consider bringing your own photographer down with you.

I was able to find a recent list of mayan photogs on here awhile ago but can't seem to find it right now. I'll keep looking and I'll post the link if I find it.

I originally wanted Claudia & she had our date open but my fiance isn't into the pictures as much as me so he was having trouble paying that much...he actually wanted the resort photog. So, we comprimised and found a less expensive photographer. But, I absolutely love Claudia's work!! I originally hired a videographer but to get them for the ceremony & the reception I had to hire them for the whole day, which wasn't cheap, but it seemed like a waste cause there's not much to videotape while we're getting photos done & eating supper etc., so I decided I'd just get someone in the family to do it instead.

That's funny! I'm having the same issues with my FI, right now we are thinking we may go with Sascha Gluck. And I agree, the resort photogs seem to make everyone who gets married at the Iberostar do the same cheesy poses ALL THE TIME! It is not something I want at all lol.

Funny ya'll should say that!!! I was the one that had a problem with the price of Claudia my Fiance didn't care... But when I put it into perspective of what we would pay in Illinois (or what my 2 friends that just got married paid), it really wasn't all that bad! Don't get me wrong it's expensive I think we are paying like $3g's but we aren't doing a videographer and my pics besides the judge showing up are the most important things on our wedding - hehehe!!! All I asked for is my judge and photographer and I am all good!

We attended a wedding last Dec at the Lindo and had a wonderful time as guests! We were really impressed. I do know that their coordinator didn't turn up for the rehearsal so the day of the wedding was a little confused. And she HATED how they did her hair at the salon there so some friends did it for her. But otherwise the hiccups were few and everyone had a wonderful time. I will say that I didn't care for the ceremony too much because it was right on the middle of the beach and there were lots of onlookers (and a jet ski in the background). It was very nice, just not very private.

 

We even considered having our wedding there! (but have decided on PV).

Hey there! We're having a civil ceremony at paraiso beach (same side as del mar), Gabriela told me that all we need are our passports and our un-translated long form birth certificates. There is a blood test that will be done when you meet with Gabriela a few days prior to the wedding date. I think it's $100 each but not 100% sure of that cost.

Also, if anyone getting married (civil ceremony) at Del Mar/Beach wants to see some of the stuff that Gabriela has you fill out prior to the wedding, let me know and I'll email em to you. :) She sent me some forms the other day requesting bride & groom information as well as witness in and another document requesting our preferences for the ceremony location, cake flavour, reception restaurant, etc.

I am getting married at Del Mar the day after you! You are way ahead of me on planning though....i still need to get a final count on guests. How many guests did you have? Is it true they only let you reserve the tropical restaurant if you have more than 50 guests?

Thanks Ladies! I am back and the wedding was AWESOME!!! I am working on my review now, but I did just read through the thread and saw some questions I can answer here. I will say though that you will be very happy with the Iberostar hotels. The wedding coordinators (Araceli and Tony) are great to work with, all the staff is super friendly, the hotels are clean, and all our guests had a great time and are already talking about going back.

    • 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?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
