          i really liked it... im not sure if i like it enough to change my ceremony location, but we will see!

          also- speaking of flowers, i really need some opinions on mine. my bridesmaids are wearing marine (davids bridal's name for a navy blue) and our flowers are going to be bright pink. however, since i am also having a reception at home, i decided to opt for flowers that are not real. i hope that im not making a mistake... since i am having issues posting the picture, i will just ask if you think it is going to make a huge difference, whether anyone will be able to tell just from pictures? what do you think? I appreciate any thoughts!

            Hey Ladies,
            Who took the photos posted..."Stephanie and Raoul" etc? They did a great job! Is this Juan Navarro's work?

              I haven't actually sorted out all the details of my package with Ana yet. Actually I think I'm still just booked with the free package, but will upgrade this. Just not sure yet whether I will do the Ultimate package, or the middle one.

              But, I've heard that you can:
              - substitute the photographer for a longer video
              - substitute cocktail hour for additional people for dinner (or reduced rates for "extra" people for dinner)

              I think it really is at her discretion though, so it needs to be something similar in nature (and equal or less than in value). There are a few things I would like to scrap also and just put the value towards food and beverage, but I'm pretty sure that won't happen! I'm not sure what you could substitute for the minister, but you should be able to get a longer video instead of a photographer, and maybe you could get some DJ service instead of the mexican music set? Not sure about that tho...

We were able to substitute the cocktail hour for additional guests at the reception because they are both food/beverage items. She also has said that I can substitute a bridal bouquet for a centerpiece, but it has to be the same service provider (salon, florist, photographer, ect)
              This makes sense to me, and this is the impression that I got also.

                Are you going with the fake flowers down in Mexico or at your reception at home? I think I'm going to go with real touch flowers too, b/c they are cheaper! there is a good forum on here about flowers and stuff, and alot of girls are doing the real touch flowers. I have never seen them , but I read alot of people saying that they are beautiful, and you definately can't see them in the pictures. So either way, I don't think it would make a difference.

                  This is actually taken by the in house photographer at DRC "Adventure Photos". I believe they are the new photographers for weddings. I honestly think they did a pretty good job! For the price, you really can't beat it! Also, one of the brides said in her review that the photographers let her do her photo session the next day because it rained on her day.... just an added bonus for using the resort photographer because they are there EVERY day!

                    My thought was that I would use them for both, Mexico, and our reception back home. that way I am not paying twice for flowers... for our reception centerpieces though i will do real flowers on half of the tables, and on the other half i am doing kind of a candle display with a vase and some sand... so at least the fake flowers wont be right under their noses:) i am definitely going to look for that flower forum. and thank you! i really appreciate your opinion=)

                      So, maybe I am just confused, but I thought that you could not have your wedding reception in one of the restaurants..... it looks like several of the recent weddings were indeed in the restaurant Anyone know the facts about this? I am still having the pool deck, but I am thinking about my plan B.
