The fee she will give you is $400 USD.... but you can negotiate with her.... the lowest i've heard her give is $200 USD so i quoted her that, and she agreed to that price for me too! Our photographer will be coming from 2pm-6pm, so it's not over any meals.... if you plan on feeding him/her, you have to buy your photographer and their assistant a day pass... which i believe is around the 80 USD mark each. My brother got married down in the mayan aswell, and after seeing there pictures (a hired professional from outside the resort) compared to the hotel photographer, as well as previoius brides head aches with the hotel photographer... there is no way the extra 200 USD is not worth it....

 

Ana called me at work on friday morning, and we confirmed every detail... she was wonderful on the phone, and i feel like all the worry and stress is gone.... now i can enjoy shopping for my last few things and meet her the day before the wedding to finalize things!!!!

 

4 weeks from today i'll be departing!!!! :)

But if I bring my pwn photographer with me from home, and pay for them as a guest, there is no extra fee, correct?  Because they are a "paying guest"?

 

Thanks so much!

Jacquelyn thanks for the info! I agree it is totally worth the extra money. I am going to hire Sascha Gluck, his work looks amazing! You must be getting so excited! I still have just about 5 months to go. I cant wait to hear how the last two weddings went!

Hey Jacquelyn!

thats awesome!!! you must be counting the minutes, I know I will be! 46 people, that's great. What a surreal and amazing experience it will be to have everyone together for a whole week! or two! I can't wait. where are you from? I am originally from Calgary but my fiance is Norwegian so I live in Norway now. But I have not forgotten the wonderful Canadian winters!!! lol -33 is pretty nasty. thinking about Mexico probably helps!!

Thats funny, I grew up in Bonnyville AB so I am well aware! I guess it's a 4 hour drive from Slave lake but pretty much as far north. I miss home, just not the snow :) I tried to find you on facebook, I found one Jacquelyn Penner but she had blonds hair, maybe that was you? I am pretty easy to find, Lise Weinberger.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
