    Yes, we have a photographer! My friends Carol and Chris of Benchwerk Photography, NYC. Luckily they have a timeshare in the Riviera Maya. They'll also be staying in GP for the week. We have DJ Doremixx booked, Lit dance floor and cold fireworks for 5 hours. 

    Our cinematographer is Augustin Lira of Cinematic Riviera Maya. I'm getting the centerpieces and church flowers from the recommended florist Casa Narciso. I had prices and pictures emailed by Vanessa Roldan so we can choose what we like.

    The bouquet I wanted is crazy expensive! I wanted cattleya orchids. You would think a tropical nation would have cheaper tropical flowers but no!  So I think I'm going with Alquimia Events to do my bridal bouquet and  5 bridesmaids bouquet of red roses and pink orchids. They gave me a better quote.

    Haha! Yes we do have a large wedding party! I have a large family and he has a small family. We wanted a traditional wedding in a very non traditional setting.

    You are so organised that's great!  Would you mind forwarding me the florist info from the GP and from Alquimia Events ... I hadn't even thought about the bouquet had just assumed they would be beautiful considering the gorgeous flowers we saw all around last time we were in Mexico! My email is claire0701@hotmail.co.uk.  That would be really helpful thanks! 

    I love this forum for reminding me of all the little things I might not have considered.

    That's really great you have some photographer friends who will be abkle to celebrate with you as well as capture all the special moments :)

        Does anyone know any musicians and vocalists for a Church wedding?

          Mikeycelle, I want to do live musicians for my ceremony as well. I should get information back this week from a couple of them and I'll pass it on to you.

            I'm leaving for the wedding in 40 days!!! So exciting! I got everything booked except musicians for the ceremony. We got a photographer, videographer and DJ for the reception so that should be fun. I decided to skip OOT bags because we have 50 people coming and I already went over budget. I got really cute favors that will work as place cards too. I found this company Maracas Mexico online and they do awesome custom made maracas. You can pick from so many different colors of base paint and design paint and give them the design and the wording you want. Mine go with the wedding colors: turquoise maracas with coral flower (I sent them an image of our invitations) and our names and the date. And the best part is they will ship it directly to the resort so I don't have to take up extra space in the suitcase. Speaking of suitcase, how are you all transporting your dresses?

                Oh my gosh!! 40 days! Creeps up on you doesn't it? That's awesome you found Maracas Mexico online. I'm interested in having our maracas made too.  Please let us know how they work out for you.We're allowed two carryon items  I'm going to let my airline know that I have a wedding dress and tux to be transported. I'll ask if they can store our apparel in the first class cabin closet so we don't take up overhead cabin space. The second carryon will my fiance's clothing. ( shirts, pants, shorts, flipflops and 2 pairs of shoes, and my wedding shoes.). The 1st check- in bag will be my ceremony supplies: candles, veil cord, guestbook, champagne flutes, ring pillow, bridal party presents ,out of town bags, thank you cards. 2nd check in bag will my clothes and make up. I plan on taking a trip to the local Walmart with my friend so we can buy stuff for the OOT bags( sunscreen, Tylenol,Imodium, bugspray, candy, snacks), also mosquito coils, shampoo, conditioner and other hair products that would take up too much room in the luggage and stuff TSA would confiscate. We will arrive on a Saturday and getting married on the following Friday which gives us ample time to shop for last minute things.

                So far, that's the scenario I've planned for. I'm sure there's many scenarios that can happen! Just hope and pray for the best!

                    Did anyone use the FunPic Photobooth at Grand Palladium? How much did they charge for how long?
