    Gah!! Not sure what happened above - sorry! Nanilu, I also am getting married in March, the 23rd actually. I had been planning on using resort photographers, but a friend who is coming has offered to do our pics as well. I'll probably get both to work together. I've seen resort pics on the Sandos playacar Facebook page, if that helps! Good luck!

      We'll be getting married in less than a month and using the resort photographer. That might be a little long for you to wait, but I'll happily report back when we return!

        I am back and married!  I just wanted to quickly let you all know about the photographer situation out there.  I know people have had questions about the flowers and salon options as well.  We used the resort photographer, and he got some beautiful shots.  It was pretty affordable, with packages starting at $500.  We ended up getting more pictures, so we upgraded to a package that ran $800.  They don't touch up the photos very much, so there are a couple of shots in which --gasp-- blemishes are visible on my face. Also a couple of almost-perfect shots that have beachgoers visible in the background.  I have friends who are proficient with Photoshop so it shouldn't be an issue.  I had my hair done at the salon, and Martha did a fabulous job on that.  Expect to pay about $100 if you do this.  To me it was worth it to be onsite.  The flowers were gorgeous.  When I first saw my bouquet, I started to cry a little because it was my first "OMG I'm a Bride" moment.  Lupita was phenomenal.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about her.  She was on top of everything, so organized and professional.

            i cant seem to find parasols here in mexico (i live here) and if you order things from abroad customs can charge you a massive tax bill.  i was charged several hundred dollars when my mum sent me a dress and a few bits and bobs from england. so if you do find them, i would definitely try to pack them rather than send them directly to the hotel

             

            its a pity as i thought theyd look awesome, guess im going with flowers now!

              do they decorate for the more private dinners in the restaurants? Or did you have to provide decorations?

                They brought the flower arrangement from our ceremony to our table, but I don't recall any other decorations. It was just nicely set with white tablecloths. We brought personalized wine glasses with us. They're pretty accommodating if you have special requests.

                  Posted Image Scratch that, no tablecloths. But they had candles and we put our flowers there as well. It was very simple and elegant.
