    I am getting married December 30, 2013 at this resort and have finally decided it is time to buckle down and get my act together! We haven't really started planning anything yet...! I am so nervous about the photographer!! At first the photos I seen were actually quite nice, but now that photographer is no longer a part of their team! The new photographer sent me photos of previous weddings he has done there and they are not quite what I was expecting for my wedding day! They looked like my father had taken the pictures (no offense to my dad!) - no retouching and definitely did not look professionally down. It’s down to the wire and I am trying to find a photographer that is not too pricey just in case we are left stuck paying the $300 vendor fee. I have emailed a few photographers but so far 1 is available and they do absolutely beautiful pictures however they come with a very hefty price tag ... ($3000 -$3500 for 5 hours)!! There is just no way I am willing to pay that much for pictures! I need some help from you ladies! Who did you use for a photographer or who are you planning on using?

      Hi Chantelle,

       

      I think its because we're getting married at the Palapa location (the one included in the presidential package) as its about 5/6 mins on golf cart from the resort it doesn't get WIFI. Marcela has been helpful though and offered her phone if needed, but my step-dad is going to log his work iPad onto 3G (I'm not sure about you but this costs a fortune from the UK - but he'll be charging it back to work hopefully!)

       

      Anyway we fly out tomorrow, and the wedding is this time next week so I will let you know how we manage to get around it!

       

      I will also scope out the bars and let you know.

       

      We just got confirmation today that we have the Mexican restaurant for our rehersal dinner, we gave our top 3 (about 2 months ago) and this was our number one, thought we'd keep it authentic as it will be our first night there!

       

      Will get some piccies up and full review when I return!!

       

      Yasmin

        Did any of the previous brides use the DJ that comes with the Presidential Package? I can't decide if we should stick with him or outsource someone. Thanks for your help!

          We did...it was a member of the entertainment crew from the resort who was brought in and he was HORRIBLE. If you've got a big/younger group in particular who is looking to really whoop it up, I would outsource!!! : )

            I also used the DJ provided by the resort, I was scared as many other past brides have said they were horrible.  I guess I got lucky b/c the guy we had was great, he played a nice mix of music some really current stuff as well as some great oldies.

                    I would imagine you can just bring a playlist for the party though can't you?

                      That's what we did...we had it all ready to go on our iPad...but he had other ideas I guess. Just make it very clear to your wedding planner that their DJ is being asked to play ONLY the songs on your playlist.
