You will not at all be disappointed using Anel from Adventure Photos, she is amazing!  I also did my research prior to selecting a photographer and knew immediately when I saw her work that she was the one I wanted to have capture my special day.  Truthfully, the entire experience at Dreams Riviera Cancun was flawless but Anel really made it extremely exciting and special.

 

I had her for the complete coverage as well and she was worth more then every penny we paid.

 

Here is our slideshow and her impressive work.

Hello Everyone:

 

This is our first time writing in the forum after several months of snooping around getting some GREAT insight :)

 

First off thanks to all brides and grooms who have taken the time to inform us all of any unknown details regarding a destination wedding!!! It is such a relief and has prepared us for all of the upcoming details.  We are getting married at Dreams Riviera Cancun on June 30, 2012 and have a few questions of our very own. 

 

We are purchasing the ultimate wedding package and our coordinator is Georgina aka Gina (who has been very quick at responding to all of our emails since day 1).

 

1) Has anyone received the 2012 pricing for all the add ons?  We are slightly concerned since we want to budget ourselves for the additional expenses.  Gina has not given us the pricing as she said it is not yet available.  However we're wondering if perhaps any January/February couples have received the pricing being that it is not so far away.  Originally we thought that since we gave a deposit in 2011, we'd get the 2011 pricing but if we are understanding correctly that is NOT the case.

 

2)  We are working with the following vendors. Does anyone have ANY FEEDBACK on any of these guys?  Originally we were considering a different photographer but Anels photo quality seems very nice.  So as of right now we will keep her.  However, We'd like to know what you guys may have to say about any of the vendors listed below as they will help complete our special day and we want everything to go smoothly.  We are also concerned about the DJ since we had no other option as per resort policy (we originally wanted DJ Doremixx).

 

- Photography- Adventure Photo (Anel Fuentes) - Complete wedding coverage

- Videography- Cancun wedding video (Mike Cantarell) - We hired him as we weren't so thrilled with the samples provided by resort videographer. - 5 hrs HD traditional coverage

- Resort Videographer- Videowedd (Cecilia Torres) - Since its included in ultimate package we will use this for rehearsal dinner coverage instead (which has been approved by the resort.)

- Photobooth- Photofacebook (Cecilia Dumas) - We plan to use this as part of our wedding favors to our guest. - 2 hrs

- DJ Entertainment (DJ Mauricio Neri) - We will hire for 3 Hrs

 

3) Also, If its not a problem, can someone update us on payments? Is there a payment plan after we have made the reservation deposit? Do we pay it in installments or do we pay entire cost upon arrival at the resort? If so, how is that final payment made as we understand only a certain amount of cash is allowed to be received per guest per stay?

 

I hope you guys can assist with some of our questions if not all :)

 

Thanks so much for all the insight!

Rachel & Allen

You still only get 50 pics with the ultimate package and I think its only the ceremony and not the reception... it definitely isn't the whole day.

I've talked to a few brides who also upgraded theirs as pictures were on the top of their lists as well and so far they all thought it was worth it and some others who didn't but were extremely happy with the shots they received so it really depends on how important they are to you and how many pictures you want. :)

You may want to contact a travel agent, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! Here is who I've used and they are FANTASTIC!  The rate we have for our group is very competitive. 

 

I haven't recieved the 2012 pricing yet, but was told that there aren't exactly payment plans set up....HOWEVER, our travel agent told us that we can make payments to them and they can send it to the resort with a record so we know what we've paid. 

 

There is a less expensive DJ option as well...someone on here recommended him and I've already paid him for the services....6 hours, including ceremony is:

Please take a look at my Price/Gear list

 

Wedding Reception for 20 to 100 pax.

Gear:

 

1 Wireless Mic Shure SM 58. (For Speeches).

2 Powered Loudspeakers QSC K10.

1 Dj Mixer & Macbook.

4 Par 64 Led lighting.

Up to 5 Hours of Music.

$ 600.00 Usd.

Overtime $ 100.00 US. Per Hour.

 

Ceremony Set Up. (Optional)

1 Powered LoudSpeaker Q.S.C K 10 .

1 8 Channel Mixer

1 Shure ULXS Wireless Mic

$150 usd.

 

We have just been saving away. Depending on what you select, it could be as much as between 9k-15k....its all in what you select... It could just be the Ultimate package and what's included...just depends on who is invited and how much you have to spend

Yamina also told me that outside vendors are no longer allowed at the resort because they have had too many problems... Be careful!!!

    • 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.
