      Kym - I haven't really narrowed it down! I love Elizabeth Medina but price wise she doesn't fit what I'm looking for (still jealous of boo though, she does great work!) So I'm going to sit down today and compare the quotes I got from Del Sol, Claudia Rodriguez & Cecilia Dumas. I'll let you know when I pick one!

      Boo - I can't believe how expensive the albums are! WOW! Personally I would make one myself.. but that's just me :)

      Diana - Welcome!

        Thanks girls, with this wedding stuff I find sometimes its hard to know whether my sticker shock is justified or not, but I just could not see myself spending the 2+ grand on an album - whew glad I am not alone. I am at work right now and it wont let me open Picaboo but I cant wait to hop on to their site once I get home, thanks for the tip!

          Just to throw my two cents in here, I found that Del Sol the two principals were not really much cheaper than E M, our second choice was Cecilia Dumas (dont let me sway you though) most of her pictures on her website however are not in the area of DRC, I loved loved loved the bright colors and how playful it all seemed, but you have to take a fairy off of Cancun to get there

            Boo - I hear what you're saying. I need to just print out all of the photographer estimates and look at them side by side. And as far as the sticker shock - YES!! Sometimes my jaw just hits the floor when I see some of the prices. Seriously!! And some of the little fees that DRC sticks the brides with for simple things (like tablecloths) is crazy!

            I think it's the whole "wedding mark-up" thing... like if you were to order an album of just some photos in general it would be half the price. But because they know you're a bride the cost skyrockets cause they know how crazy we all are about having the perfect wedding

              I know I can't believe how much they mark everything up it is ridiculous!!!

              Personally I like the idea of making my own album that way it is more personalized to Bryan and I. Also I am very detail oriented and picky so I don't think someone else could stand to do an album for me hahaha

                oh yeah totally, its like you want this flower then its this much, oh wait you want these for a wedding, well then its double, ha ha - yeah our cost for linen has definitely exceeded expectations, that being said I think I might have to go light on the flowers / centre pieces - I figure the beach the sand should be 'enough' d©cor

                      Ashly so far I am renting them from the resort, we are renting 3 sheets of material for the wedding gazeebo on the beach, cocktail table linen as it urks me not to have the linen go all the way to the sand, then linen for the dinner tables and cake table - I think thats it...plus chairs for the ceremony, and I am right now against renting chairs for dinner, it just adds up too quick and I dont know that anyone will even notice
