AnaS Would you mind to email what info you have as well?  I am JUST starting to get resorts narrowed down and this one is def. sticking out to me but I'd like to know as mh as I can about what type of investment I'm in for :)

 

My email: greenlime_7@hotmail.com   Thank-you!!.

 

Question about photography:  I saw a ways back someone mentioned buying their photog a room for the night to avoid fees....What about if your photograper truly is a guest?  I plan to fly my photographer fromhere in Alberta, so she would stay for a week just like my other guests.  Does she still get pegged as a 'vendor" I wonder?

 

Hope I'll be joing you ladies soon on this forum as an offical "planning" bride :)

@sgreen99, good luck with your planning! If your photographer travels down and stays with you, she would not be considered a vendor and you wouldn't have to pay any fees.

Hey sgreen99,

 

We've just been through the whole "vendor/non-vendor" thing ... we were quoted $300 for a vendor fee, but if we have our photographer stay over night (very handy for TTD the next day), we only pay $132pp (double occupancy).  I think that's the way we're going to go - haven't totally decided yet.  We've only booked the photographer until 6pm, so I feel badly that they're going to have nothing to do all night!  Well, I guess there are worse places in the world to have nothing to do all night ... ;)

 

Bottom line - if your photographer is a 'guest', no matter for how long, you don't need to pay the vendor fee.  Or, at least that's how I understand my particuar arrangement.

 

Hope that helps!

 

Cheers,

Hi Ladies, I wanted to point you to some great pictures our travel agent took in Sept when she was down in the Myan for some site inspections. If you use Facebook, search for Blue Petal Destination Weddings - then search through their albums for Ocean Coral Turquesa by H10. They've posted over 100 photos of the resort, and have albums for many other resorts with helpful comments. Good Luck!

Hey!  I've been a little MIA on the forum lately, but have been following the thread....I was sooooooooo pleased to read the menu tasting review!  Anyway I'm writing about the Officiant information.  I haven't seen anything from the hotel, but I'm wondering if that's because I'm doing a symbolic ceremony???  What about you?  Are you doing a legal or symbolic ceremony?  Thanks!

I also wanted to share this information that our wedding planner just got from the officiant's that OCT uses, I found it very helpful and great to hear that they really tailor the ceremony to the couple:

 

In our web page you and the bride will find the different tipes of ceremonies that we officiate.
It is:
www.cancunweddingofficiant.com
There is An info sheet to be filled up by tha bride and the groom.
According to that, we design a tailor made wording which varies in every event, depending on their beliefs, time together, special interests, etc.
All this within the structure called Wedding Format.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
