So we are renting a tent, and a dance-floor. Since we have more than 30 that is our only option, but happens to be exactly what we want! I am using Carolina for my WC, she seems great, i actually need to get back in touch with her since i am in a bit of a wedding planning lull lately...
We are not using one of their photographers, though i almost did... it just depends what you want. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but i wanted all my pictures (1 of the options doesn't give you them), I also wanted more than a couple hours, and booked with moments that matter photography. They are actually from Calgary, moving down to riviera maya (They are on this forum all the time!), and they were really reasonable, figured it was worth the $500 fee to the resort to have someone that has an interest in taking amazing photos! Anyways, i thought the resort photogs were good, but the options i wanted were too expensive, i felt like i was getting ripped off!
I am not doing a TTD, because we are leaving the day after the wedding! I would have loved to do one, and if i did, i think i would have just worn my same dress... it would have been fun!
Oh, and i think most of the stuff at the resort is ridiculously overpriced, so centerpieces are definitely something i shall make up beforehand... I am also using fake flowers (i was quoted $25/calla!).
What are you planning? How many guests?
I haven't been quoted anything for flowers or anything like that, but if we do the private beach dinner thing I won't even worry all that much about centerpieces unless like you we bring them from home premade.
As for our photographer we haven't quite decided yet, but I am looking more and more at Mexican Wedding Photos, its one of the approved ones, she has some pretty cool shots that I think she would do a pretty good job at our wedding. Thing is her pricing is in US and I am trying to get one of her packages for the same price as shes got quoted in US, I will see how that goes. That sucks that you are leaving the day after your wedding so you can't do the TTD... I may even do mine if I do it the day before in the second dress... haven't decided on that.
What are your colors and do you have official bridesmaids and all the good stuff? Ours is sort of laid back I have asked my sister to be a witness, but I am not picking out their dresses just the color and material so they all at least look the same in pictures. My fiance's two sisters are probably going to be in the other color I have chosen. I can't wait to start all the planning! Mine is still a ways away but I am super excited!
