Hello All!!!

 

WE SET OUR DATE!!!! April 29, 2011!!!

 

Does anyone know if they are able to adjust the Gold or Silver package menus at all? They are just too fancy for my guests. My dad is a meat and potatos man, so a filet with mashed potatos for something more simplified would be ideal.

 

So far, cooresponding with Yamina has been great. We've usually given her a couple of days to respond to emails, but call if we haven't heard anything by then.

 

Also, does anyone have any pictures of the reception sites to choose from?

 

We are so excited and happy to have this message board to talk to all of you!

 

Thanks,

 

Mary

Hello everyone! I am so excited that I found this forum. All of you have been so helpful! My fiance and I will be getting married there 10/28/2010. After pouring through this thread over the past 3 hours I feel pretty good about our decision to have our wedding at EPM! If any of you have links to pictures or information/documents that Yamina has sent you please send them my way. Anything would help! Thanks a bunch!

Hello ladies,

 

We got back from our wedding just a few weeks ago and had a really great time! We had 44 people with us over Memorial Day weekend and I think our guests had an amazing time. It was definitely a busy weekend for the resort but they did a great job overall. Get to know the staff (and tip upfront) we felt it really paid off.

 

If I could say one thing about Yamina... it would be that we all pick destination weddings for one reason or another... and the greatest benefit of a destination wedding is that you can trust someone else to take care of the details. I sent her ideas (and to be honest over-thought so much of it) but she did an incredible job. I didn't go into any of this with a super-specific idea in mind- I just wanted it to be nice and to have a great time- what I realized as soon as we got there was that Yamina is more of a quality person than her emails could ever describe... she has high standards so no matter what you ask for I am sure she will do her absolute best to deliver. I will post pictures tomorrow but if I could change two things, the first would have been the timing from the ceremony to dinner. We had our ceremony at 5:30 and tried to dinner at 6:30... it was way too soon. We should have done dinner at 7pm. And the only other thing to keep in mind is that unless humidity is your friend be cautious about how you do your hair. :) You know how your hair behaves best and let that drive how you do your hair. :)

 

I would say... all in all - don't worry - you will have a wonderful time!

Ladies!!!

 

I need help! Does anyone have any info on the average cost of a great photographer? Who did you or are you using? It is the most important aspect to me, but I can't spend a fortune. Help!

 

Thanks,

I am using William Sanchez. He is about the cheapest that I have found without taking cheezy prom-like photos on the beach. He is $1000 for 4 hours. I am signing my contract and booking him as we speak. His photos are beautiful!

Destination Wedding Photographer Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Cancun | William Sánchez

You will also have to pay for him and his lighting assistants event pass which is $70 each.

Good luck!

Hey ladies,

I'm new to the forum. I've read all your posts and it's been really helpful. The date I wanted at EPM for a Saturday in August 2011 is already booked and I was wondering if it was possible to hold a non-legal ceremony on a Sunday. Does anyone know if EPM allows weddings on Sundays? I just don't want to have a Friday wedding and have my guests take off 2 days to come. Many are in grad school and it would be nearly impossible to do that. Thanks!
