    Hi Girls!

    I hear Litzy is the person to go to for makeup and hair.  I would suggest asking for her!

        Hey ladies!

         

        So I'm wondering what some of you are doing for wine at dinner.  I have the Paradise Package and I'm not sure if wine is included with dinner.  I know Ana sent me the wine upgrade list and the prices were ridiculous.  For the ladies that have been to the resort how would you rate the house wine?  Btw I'm not a wine connoisseur or anything, lol, but I just want make sure it doesn't taste like feet or something haha.

         

        Thanks!

          Well, that last post didn't come out exactly as planned lol.  This is what I meant to post:

           

          Hi ladies, this is my first post, hopefully it works!

           

          I am getting married at the OCT on April 12th. I'm having a tough time swallowing the 300 + 80pp day pass vendor fee that the resort charges for external photographers.. I've seen on here that some people have been able to talk Ana down, but so far she's been firm on that quote for us. Any ideas? 

           

          Friends of our had their photos done by Sascha Gluck and they turned out beautifully. To anyone going with him: His work is amazing, I'm sure you'll love your photos!

           

          Also, did anyone do a slideshow at their reception? If so, did you bring your own projector or does the resort have one we can use?

           

          Thanks for all your help everyone!

            Awesome! Congrats! I'm excited to hear the good news about Sascha because he's our photographer :-)

             

            The vendor fee is brutal isn't it?  We haven't been able to budge with it either.  If it makes you feel better we were originally quoted $400 and then I saw the $380 online so we were able to change it. 
             

            I'm not doing a projector, but the hotel will charge you to rent one.  I received an audio visual pricing list not too long ago and I think the projector's range from $70 - 200.  I'll look around for it and pm you.

              I wasnt a huge fan of the wine from the previous times we have been to the resort. I found that if we were drinking at dinner usually we always ended up ordering a mixed drink and skipped the wine.

                Thanks for the feedback!  What are you doing for dinner wine?  Are you skipping it or upgrading?

                  My fiance and I had the house wine at the mexican restaurant I remember and it was not good.  We skipped wine at the resort altogether and ordered mixed drinks (the mojitos were exceptional).

                  I would upgrade the wine if that is what you think your wedding guests will opt for.  Could you PM me the Audio Visual price list?

                    We are skipping on upgrading the wine, we'll just tell our guests to steer clear of it. I don't think they will opt for wine when in Mexico though.

                      Thanks Sandy!  With two people saying stay away I think I might just do that ;-)

                       

                      I'll send you the list asap.
