    It has prices for the videographer, although I'm not sure what is included in each price point.
    Sorry I guess I should have said what are the prices and what does it include. We are bringing a photographer and we are able to get a videographer instead with our package.

      You have to have 150 posts to be able to download attachments. If you start a post and you are active with it you get a point every time you respond to your own post. Hope that helps.
      Wow! Thanks for letting us know. I did not realize that.
      I am having Juan Navarro as my photographer but the pricing took a long time to get to me. He just quoted me a price and I am wondering about how that would compare to possible other packages out there. I did not get a whole list from him.
      Thanks for the heads up!

        Does anyone know what comes with the basic free package as far a decorations for the wedding ceremony or do we need to supply that? In a e-mail I have a while ago from Ana it seems they do some kind of basic set up but have not been informed what they do. I am getting married at the gazebo with just a very small amount of close family and really don't need anything fancy but was wondering about maybe a flower arrangement or something or if there is a table there. Some of the set ups I have seen have shown a table with flowers but not sure if the brides supplied that. Anyone know?

          This complimentary package includes:

          * Service of justice of peace or minister
          * Wedding Organization and personalization of our Wedding coordinator
          * Preferential location of the room in the category reserved
          * Preparation and ironing of the wedding dress and grooms tuxedo/suit
          * Complimentary room for the groom the night before the wedding (based on availability)
          * Bride's Bouquet
          * Boutonniere for the groom
          * Wedding cake and sparkling wine for 10 guests
          * Special turn down service at night
          * 15% discount on all Spa treatments (product purchases not included)
          * Honeymoon Package
          * Late check-out for Bride and Groom (based on availability)
          * Use of the wedding gazebo or beach front casita
          * Complimentary anniversary nights (2 free nights when staying a minimum of 5 nights over first anniversary date or 1 nights free when staying a minimum of 4 nights over first anniversary date)*

          This is what is listed on there website. I do not think you will get any flowers except for your bouquet. The pictures that I have seen for just the free wedding was the one on the beach. I have never seen any pics of it under the gazebo. You can always buy additional add on's at the resort. There is a price list a view pages back with pictures I think.

I made sure to attach the look of what I want, a heavy looking satin with a big satin bow that goes all the way to the sand. Once I got confirmation that we are on the same page I have been asking every vendor including Ana to send me back a picture of what out of their stock they think of using to fill my request. The pictures I have been getting clearly indicate that there is a break down in communication. That is why I have contacted a # of vendors. I am most likely being silly I am just supe worried that we only really get one chance to get it 'right'
            Ohhhh I see! Okay - I totally don't blame you at all and actually I appreciate you mentioning that because I should really ask her to send me pictures of exactly what they have - see I'm doing pink and orange but the pink is more raspberry and I should probably make sure thier interpertations match my expectations!

                Hey ladies - you can also pay $25 for membership which allows you to open attachments before you reach 150 points...which is what I did :)
                There's instructions in the general forum information thread - but I believe the option is under vbPlazaMenu.

Ana does not really answer all of the questions you ask. What I have learned to do in writing a email with wedding related things.

                      I will number my questions example
                      1) Is there a additional price to have a outside photographer?
                      2) If so how much would the cost be?

                      When they do not answer your question send the email back and say you did not answer number 1 lol

                      This seems to work for some reason. Good luck girl I know it is frustrating it will all work out.
                      just to answer your question about outside photographer. if you bring your own from home no additional cost. If you bring a local depending who it is it could be an additional charge of 300.
