    Ditto!
    Could you email me recommendations (what you would have done different, what you are glad you chose) and pics, that would be awesome! I'm getting married here on 11/26/10!! I picked Mamma Mia and was wondering if anyone who got married picked that restaurant and were they happy with it? and how did it look? Also did you book an mexican photographer?

    Thanks
    Liz

As for deciding which to do, thats a personal one since it has a fairly large price tag attached to it. We have decided on Thai Beach Club but as a private reception (after much back and forth) and can send you some pics if you pm me your email address :)
      Hi,
      I'm getting married there in November of this year. I'd appreciate it if you could send me pics as well. I was thinking of doing the private reception at the thai beach club but they quoted me a $100/per person price tag (becaue apparently the thai beach club is closed on fridays and that's the day of my wedding)!! Seems crazy! Were you charged the same thing?

      My email is liz.goncalves@autodesk.com ...thanks a bunch!!!

        Hi ladies. That is what I was quoted too...I didn't get the $45/person option because they said it's closed on fridays and my wedding is on a friday darn! I've seen some pics on photographer sites of the thai beach club reception...and it looks super nice....

          And yes the on site photographer is pricey. I have been looking at Moments that Matter Photography, very nice work and pretty good pricing for what you get. I was last quoted 4 hours for $2000 and you get all the pictures.

          Has anyone received pictures of the wedding cakes they make at the resort?
          Hi ladies...

          i've been researching photographers for a while. MTM photography def looks nice but I think they're pricey...So here's what I have found out so far, figured I'd share the wealth :

          www.fineartstudiomexico.com....they also charge $2k..but it includes 2 photographers for 8 hours & 3 hour TTD session included....you get all pics (over 1,000)...catch is...they require a 50% deposit upfront...that's the only reason I'm not going with them....

          other options I''m looking at:
          www.octaviomontes.com....he is the cheapest I have found so far $1399 for 8 hours, 180 edited prints plus DVD with all pics....only 1 photographer though (people say sometimes it's better to have 2 so they can catch different angles).

          Another option: www.luckiephotography.com....$1500 UNLIMITED time..2 photographers....although I find that it looks like 1 of the photographers is really good but the 2nd one doesn't seem to have a good idea of composition....

          Enjoy! :)

              It is a lot of $$$$$ especially considering that you're at an all inclusive. But for me in the end the way I looked at it was that it was my wedding day and I'm not going to Mexico to have my reception in a la carte restaurant. In the end I'm sooo glad I'm going prvate as I have heard that the resort is going to be busy. I did consider the beach reception, but my finace wasn't so hot on the idea of having sand everywhere. Also I decided to cut back and have a renewal of vows ceremony and am only paying 1/2 price for kids and empty seats since I only have 35 people total coming.

                Hi girls. Just wondering what you all are doing for your honeymoon. Are you staying at the resort, or going to a new one? We just got a quote to stay an extra week and per person it is $1250! That seems high to me considering we are getting married there and bringing in a lot of money for the resort. Does this seem right? I thought there might have been a honeymooner's deal or something...
