I'm sure there's some certifications or something he'd have to look into, and I've inquired with the resort but haven't heard back just yet so I thought I'd check with you ladies!

 

I'm not really sure how that works actually ... I originally was going to say yes you could, however the minister the resort provides has all the paperwork and stuff for your marriage license and is responsible for getting everything filed.

Please please invest in an outside photographer so you have pretty pictures of your special day!

 

 

I am with kfarkas26 !!! Misha Earle is AMAZING !!! She photographed our wedding and TTD session as well ... waiting anxiously for the pics !! We didn't buy a single picture from DigiPix, not only were they ridiculously expensive, but I took better pictures with my camera ! We had considered buying a group pic they took the night of the rehearsal dinner, but I wasn't willing to spend the $15 they wanted for one 5x7 picture ! I will say however ... we did use Digipix to do our video for the ceremony, and we really loved it. If you don't want to spend $1000 + (and that's the cheap end) on a photographer, you should consider the resort videographer :)

Bah, lol. Yeah I wasn't sure either. Other resorts had told us you had to pay the minister fees regardless, and Iberostar did tell me before that he could perform a symbolic ceremony, but I hadn't specified about legal at the time. We were originally going to the legal thing beforehand with my uncle, but since he's coming now anyways, I figured down there would be better. :)

Thanks for that info! I was considering them for the videography. Do you mind sharing what your charge was for the pictures? Did she have 2 photographers?

Hi Lauray, I actually sent out informal invites as my save the date via email. I had a graphic designer create a really nice one (looked as formal as paper would have). I have her creating the passport invites now as my formal invite. What did you choose?

Hi Ladies, I think I read this somewhere before but I can't for the life of me find it again. We have an extra day of shooting with our photographer and are trying to decide what the best way to use it will be... if we can afford an excursion for our guests it will be that and our welcome dinner.

 

But, otherwise we are thinking about nearby venues where we could go and take some pictures like the Great Rose Hall House or the Aqueducts. Did anyone else contact them about just taking photos there... I think I read that they charge a pretty large fee. Anyone have any other suggestions of places that might make for some awesome photos? I might be open to TTD, not sure yet because our extra day of shooting might end up being the day beforeee the wedding which wouldn't work out so well! :)

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
