Hello Grand GSRM Brides!

I'm getting married on April 24th, 2014.  I was wondring if anyone decided to go with an outside photographer from Mexico for their wedding.  I was looking a the packages available through Adventure Photos, did anyone use their services.

thanks!

any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Shera,

We opted to go with an outside photographer and we are willing to pay the penalty.  I looked at the company they provide and honestly I think it looks terrible and I'm not willing to compromise on something I will have forever!  We are using PlayaWeddings I believe is what they are called.

are any of you planning any sort of excursions for your guests? we are going to offer Tulum and Xplore or Xcaret!

 

Hi Janelle -we just got married in Aug and we asked all our guests to join us for an optional excursion to Tulum. So we did the walk around the site, and then we went swimming in the ocean there - most beautiful beach I've been on hands down. The sand is soooo soft and the water is perfect. And the tour guide told us that they are closing it off for swimming beginning next year so take advantage! Then we went off to another beach and swam with sea turtles - sooo awesome. Then to end off the day he drove us to a local ocean front restaurant for some local food and it was delicious. The restaurant was super cool, there were swings at the bar for seating, super colorful, giant sandbags and hammocks on the beach. Tree houses with a pail you can send down to the server and he'll rope drinks up to you in your treehouse. I would def do it again we had so much fun. Our parents and the older folks went for the half day, so their trip ended after the Tulum swimming. But our gang did the full day. I'd highly recommend this excursion bc it's great for all ages and it's only a 20 min ride from Grand Sirenis.

Hey Shera - I would not recommend their photographer. They're the same ones that walk around all day taking photos of you with their exotic animals. We stayed there a year before our wedding and took some engagement photos with them and was pretty disappointed with the photos. But whether you use them or not they will still charge you that $300USD give or take. I would ask them not to come as they might get in your photographer's way.

Hi Ladies,

 

I am having some mixed feelings and troubles with deciding one a photographer. I have looked at Del Sol, Dean Sanderson and Maya Weddings. Has anyone used any of these or are going to? Its such an important decision and I am confused!

    • 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.
