Does anyone have any recommendations for the resort photographer adventure photos? A name would be great! April 3,2011 Brooke n Rasheed
I have booked Anel from Adventure Photos and she is very sweet. There is a recent review and slideshow of photos she took a few pages back...she has a great eye and her pictures turn out better then some of the other ones I've seen from Adventures.

Hello,

Can anyone recommend  Wedding Planner/Coordinators that supports the Riviera Maya area?

 

We still have not made up our minds on whether we should use hotel's coordinator or hire an independent coordinator to work with us and the hotel coordinator, but would like to know who we should consider (great work/communication, reasonably priced) if we do go that route.

 

Thanks!

@ JKHOWELL - I would suggest if the resort DJ is horrible, to have an IPOD reception.  I have read tons of reviews that the technician is very good and he will know when to "fade out" the songs for the speeches etc. - The package comes with a technician, speakers/equipment, and a microphone ( 180/hr)   We personally have always wanted the IPOD wedding due to our pickiness of songs- LOL - We are also burning the songs onto CD's for backup.  They say 90-110 songs for a 3 hr reception is plenty.

Just wanted to check to see if this info is accurate.

 

In order to get married (legal) in Mexico, you have to be there 4 full days prior to the wedding? Meaning, if the wedding is on a Fri, you have to get there the Sunday prior to?

 

Is this true? Have seen different info on a few different sites and just wanted to confirm with the experts :)

 

Is this also a requirement if you do a symbolic ceremony in Mexico?

Hello,

 

We are getting married on 2/25/2011 and are using DJ Neri as well.

 

Question for everyone:

 

Are you providing a full list of all the songs you want the DJ to play or rather a list of songs you want to have played and trusting that the DJ can take that information and play music that keeps people dancing?  We have created a list of songs but I don't know that we have the time to come up with every song that should be played on our wedding night.  Thoughts? 

 

If anyone has a list of songs they are providing and wouldn't mind sharing could you please send that list to BAWeddingPlans@gmail.com

I had a call with Ana this afternoon, she was very prompt in calling on time and even rescheduled with me for later in the day when I mentioned I had to finish up something at work. She called again on time at the rescheduled time. I was impressed. Firstly, she was very warm and kind...you can tell she's a nice lady. Although it was only over the phone, I got a good vibe from her. I went over my timeline with her (my wedding is on the beach at 4pm, dinner at 6pm on the pool deck) and then told her I wanted to opt out of having the cocktail party. No need for it really...my group will simply gather at the beach bar from 4:30 to 6 or change, or relax or watch our photos...who cares?! LOL...She told me that she would apply that credit ($26=15%=10% for 20 ppl = $657.80) to the extra dinners that we will be subject to paying for the extra 25 guests we are having, I LOVED this...I think it's fantastic that they will allow for those credits to be applied. Amazing news! I then asked her about the DJ and confirmed the free dance floor to which she said they'd take care of that. I asked if DJ Mauricio Neri was the only vendor approved to work with the hotel and she said yes for now. I guess they are reviewing other DJ's but as of yet, Visual Sound is the only approved vendor, meaning, the only one willing to sign the contract. Fair enough...after reading a bad review we know we need to be cautious working with him, so I will have a long list of songs ready to email in advance to him...I'll keep them on IPod as a back up in case he screws up...and maybe bring along an adapting cable just to be safe. LOL...We may sound crazy but for most of us, the DJ can make or break the party so as long as we're prepared, I'm thinking we can avoid disasters with the DJ. I also asked her about lighting on the pool deck. Ana said that she had some paper lanterns that I could use at no charge, she would set them up for me...she said she'd send pictures. There are two towers of lights for the pool deck, plus the DJ lights but she said the paper lanterns would add some light and some decor. I was happy about that. It would be nice to not have to bring in an outside vendor for lighting... Lastly the menu and the flowers she said she'd email to me so when I receive the details I will do my best to post the pictures of what she sends on here for you to see. She recommends the buffet for group over 40 and I think it's the safest bet as I do not want guests being served cold food because it's too large of a group for a plated dinner...so I will go with the buffet as per her suggestion. She is going to send me a full estimate on the total cost prior to our arrival which is great so I have an idea of what to expect when we get there and where we can afford to add extras once we arrive, if we decide to add anything? Overall, after speaking with her and reading so many reviews, I'm truly excited now and feeling like everything is starting to fall into place. I'm so excited to work with Anel from Adventure Photography and I know that regardless of the small details, the day will be perfect and the rest of the planning will be stress free now that the big questions are out of the way. Phew! I would recommend that everyone has this type of call with her prior to the wedding. But, do it 3 months or so before the big day...it'll help those last crazy weeks of planning seem a lot more calm and organized.

    • 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.
