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.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
