I'm pretty sure you can bring in a photographer. I believe if they are not staying at the hotel then you need to buy them a day pass. I would email Damarys and ask she usually will get back to you within a couple of days.

Hello all!

I'm currently in planning mode for this resort too. At first Damarys will tell you flat out 'no outside photographers', but I kept pestering her after hearing of others that have had outside photographers at the resort and here was her reply... "The Hotel policy does not allowed outside photographers, and the photographers that have come show up on the same day and we should let them in paying a day pass of $70.00 USD per person and it is valid for 8 hours, dinner or private receptions are not included."

I also asked about if the photographer stays at the resort as a guest, and she said it would "not be a problem".

 

Hope this helps!

Hey everyone!!

 

Just wanted to give you a rundown on the wedding - absolutely wonderful!! I was worried beforehand with some of the negative reviews on the resort itself, but we had no problems and our group of 27 had a wonderful time!

Diana was our coordinator (Sunset side) and was so helpful!

We got married at the gazebo, and the standard decorations were gorgeous with the flowers and white tulling. All the bouquets were gorgeous and I was able to change the colour ribbon for each of the bouquets since all the bridesmaids were a different colour! They have a CD player and speakers for when you walk down the aisle which is loud enough for everyone to hear. As well there is a microphone that is used during the ceremony so all the guests can hear!

After the ceremony we had dinner at La Hacienda (Mexican) and the food was wonderful and the staff did an excellent job -it couldn't have been better!

The sunset lobby was so busy after dinner (8pm) that we decided that we didnt' want to do our dance in front of the couple hundred people in the area - a little shy perhaps :) After the dinner, we went up to the lobby bar where we pulled enough table and chairs together, and Anthony took care of us the whole night - a wonderful man! We also managed to do a bouquet toss there an everyone had a wonderful time. Originally, we had booked the private reception, but decided against it in the end - and we're glad we did - we had just as much fun on our own! :) The wedding ended up being $870USD (we paid $10/pp extra for the dinner over 20ppl) Plus, it gets chilly at night and most of us moved into the Sports Bar and then Disco when the temps started to drop! Its totally personal preference though, and I am sure that the private reception would be beautiful as well!

 

That's all I have - I have a few pics if anyone wants, I can email them of the gazebo, flowers, etc.

 

No worries about your weddings everyone - its absolutely perfect and all taken care of when you get there!

Hi Tinaczar!

One quick question... so the white veils are included aas standard decorations on the Gazebohuh.gif? I was told by Damarys that it was an extra $340 USD....

 

By the way, I'm getting married on the sunset side on April 29th 2009 so I wrote an email to Damarys to confirm my final flower and cake choices and she hasn't replyed in almost 3 weeks.... is she still around? Did you pick your stuff once you got down there or had you picked it before you left?

 

I would love to see pictures too! Can you please email me some at valerie.normand@gmail.com. Thanks!

Hi Tinaczar!

 

First of all, Congratulations and a big "THANK YOU" for sharing your wedding experience with us all!

 

I would love for you to send me the pics if possible. My email is: roxyk05@yahoo.ca

 

My question for you is regarding the reception menu. I've been told that you have to choose a set menu for the whole group. What menu items did you choose and how was your meal? Did you get a chance to eat at any of the other ala carte restaurants and if so can you recommend any specific dishes? This so far is one of my biggest struggles with the planning process.

 

Thank you,

 

Roxane

Hey there nscheatham! I picked the BASIC renewal of vows package and we did the legal part back here in Canada as there are just a bunch of pesky things that you need to get done to have it legally in Mexico - the thing is they do the vow renewal ceremony exactly as a marriage ceremony - the exchange of vows, rings, "I dos" and the kiss at the end - we even got a marriage certificate at the end of it - though its not legally binding, it was really nice to have it that way since we didn't take the legal ceremony back here in Canada to mean much to us other than it was a legality :) I'm sending pics shortly - let me know if you have any other questions! Tina

    • Hey. Well, I would say that for a honeymoon, Florida is not a particularly good option. My preference in such cases is the paradise islands where you can actually to be alone. If I chose where to fly, my recommendations about choice were Seychelles. Just look at the reviews of these islands, and you will immediately fall in love with them. Also, there are only great hotels such as (https://savoy.sc/blog/honeymoon-in-seychelles/) and many others. My wife and I visit this country every year and try to combine different hotels, and this one is very worthy.
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
