Even if I bring my friend to shoot our wedding, I am also thinking about meeting with Cecilia Dumas the next day in Isla Mujeres where all the colorful buildings are and take photos there as well. I'm just brainstorming right now, but I was just wondering if I have to pay for the room/flight, then it will be just cheaper to get a local photographer...
Hi ReeRee!
If he is your friend, I would talk to him about the fee and travel expenses. From my experience, when you fly someone in for a service, you would generally pay for their air, hotel and fee - but if he is your friend, maybe u can work something out.
Depending on the local photographer - they may ask for an overnight accomidation too - so you might want to double check that. "Local" doesn't always mean that they live in the area - they could live in mexico city.

Good luck!

We just got back from our weddingmoon/ scheduled elopement at Secrets Maroma Beach. It was truly amazing. We were treated like royalty. The service at the resort was stellar. I plan to post a full review with our teaser shots from Sascha Gluck of Cancun Photos. We LOVED him and can't stop looking at the photos. He and Lars made everything relaxed and easy. I'm happy to answer any questions for SMB brides. If you are worried about getting your hair and nails done, don't be. Blanca did a fabulous job on both for me. I gave her a picture of what I wanted for my hair and she did EXACTLY what I asked for and did in 40 minutes!

Now my ceremony is at 2 pm, the other lady is on this forum and her ceremony is at 3:30. Mine is at Secrets Maroma and hers is at The Royal, PDC. We are both freaking out, I called him and he had indicated that this Saturday he has 3 and that this is typical. I just don’t know what to do, I thought I would splurge as hair is super important to me and now I am worried its going to be a rush job for multiple of what I would have paid else where.

Yikes this is just too stressful.
I'd ask him exactly how much time he's planning on spending on you to do your hair and makeup and at what time he is coming. If you don't think he has enough time to take care of your needs, you may want to look elsewhere. Also, is he planning on doing a trial run through with you before the wedding? If so, it won't take him as long the day of. (BTW, I'm not married yet--I just do makeup for wedding parties here in the States)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
