Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I also did not get a list of photographers from Ana. I just emailed her with the name of the photographer and she approved it. I looked into all of those photographers that SDBeachGirl just listed except Cecilia Dumas. I have emails with pricing and packages from all of them if anyone is interested. They were all really nice and responded to my emails quickly and I read good reviews also!

I am not doing a group booking. I sent out my invitation and just told everyone to book through our TA. Our TA held a group of seats (I think 20) on a flight - I had to put out the money (I think $50 per seat) but if they don't get booked, I will still be reimbursed and after everyone books, my TA will refund the money I put out. We also reserved a block of rooms at the resort (did not have to put any money out for that). So, hopefully everyone goes through the TA to book!

Is anyone having a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, or any other kind of organized event for everyone? If so, what are you doing? I am lost here and not sure what to do!

I think we will have something, but I am not sure what yet. I will take a look at the various restaurants while on our site visit. I was just planning on doing a rehearsal dinner, but now it sounds like everyone is going to arrive a few days early and I guess it would be nice to have some sort of welcome dinner or event. I also want to look into the option of having a sunset catamaran cruise. Maybe this can be in place of a welcome dinner. Or I may just try to organize that so that everyone pays for their own ticket, versus having that be on us. But we'll see...

Basically, I haven't done much planning on this part...as you can see.

Hi Laura,

Would you mind emailing the price sheets you got from the other photographers? I just want to make sure that the prices that Cecilia has are comparible. I'll send my email address to you in a private message.

Thanks,

Elizabeth Medina - I have heard great things about her but she is a little more pricey.

Claudia Rodriquez - She is supposed to be really good, but not available on my date.

Moments That Matter - They looked good and got good reviews...not available on my date

Dino Gomez - Good reviews...not available on my date

Citilli (sp?) - one of Claudia Rodriguez's photogs...good reviews but not available for me.

Cecilia Dumas - Good reviews and available...yeah! I plan to meet with her while I am at my site visit in November.
Thanks for the suggestions. I have not started to do the research yet, feeling a little overwhelmed with this part as well. As if choosing a resort was not hard enough! The photographer is very important to me but at the same time, I don't want to pay exorbitant fees! Sounds like your wedding date is a popular one. I hope you like Cecilia Dumas and it all works out.
