    I hope this can answer your question... I am getting Juan (The resort Photographer) for five hours with every single picture he takes on a CD with NO printed pictures and all reprinting rights. For this he is charging me a total of $1611.00. However, I have a credit of $724.00 with my ultimate wedding package. So outside of the wedding package I am paying. $887.
     

    Was he trying to charge you more than 1600 total?

      He was trying to charge me more, but I think he did not understand that I did not want any prints as well. He said that I should first contact the resort and then I guess she would contact him to work out the upgrade.  Is that what you did?

        Yes, That is exactly what I did. I setup my wedding package with Valeria (my wedding coordinator) and then contacted juan to work out a deal with him.

         

        It worked pretty well. At least so far. I will see when we arrive next week how everything flows!! I will let you know how it goes

              Oooo What a question to ask me since I have been working on my welcome bag ideas and buying things for MONTHS and MONTHS!

               

              I don't have pictures, yet. I was going to wait to assemble them all down in mexico (they are in pieces right now).

               

              But an overview of them. I bought canvas bags for about $3 a piece. ( I will post where I got everything from in my planning thread)

               

              Ironed on my Logo by Allurements by Rebecca (found her on this forum)

               

              I have done a Beach & Hangover kit that includes Chapstick, Sunscreen, Tums, Bug Spray, Advil, a first aid kit (bandaids, antibactieral..etc) Hand sanitizer. I have a few other things in there but can't think of them off the top of my head.

               

              I am putting in a welcome booklet that has all the info about the resort, a schedule of events, a welcome letter, and a crossword and wordsearch all about Bride & Groom.  We have pens and pens with the welcome letters.

               

              I also have pashimas in each bag, one for each lady that has a tag on it "to have and to hold and to keep you from the cold"

               

              We included a tervis tumbler w/ hammock on front (the #1 thing we splurged on, but they are really nice and have a life time guarentee)

               

              I have a few other things that I have put in there, but I am at work and I can't remember everything! I will be sure to post my planning thread on here for everyone :)

               

              We leave Monday!!!! Woooooooooo

                Those are great party favors.  I especially love the crossword and wordsearch about the Bride & Groom idea.  It's a great way for everyone to get to know the Bride and Groom. =)  Very excited for you.  Look forward to hearing about your whole experience there when you get back. =)

                    I'm not sure how it works, but maybe you have to book it through Secrets directly? I hope it works out for you!

                      I am not quite sure how it works either. We have always booked our airfare and resort separately and have been to SMB twice now, just booked our third trip, and that has worked out best price wise for us. But I would suggest maybe contacting a travel agent and have them do the leg work for you to get more information about it. I know it can be difficult getting information from Secrets directly.
