    I think it's just the resort photographer and your coordinator will do that.  All I did was tell Yamina I want Anel at Adventure Photos for the full day for $999.  She confirmed it.  :)  I'm told you meet with them when you get there.

      Thanks!!!  That's all my sister in law right there.  We knew we wanted a post card but she's amazing!  She's doing our invites too!

        NO WAY!  That's so late.  I'm sending the STDs now...which is 11 months.  Invites by January 15th.  Wedding is July 20th.  I think 6 months for invitations!

        Speaking of invitations, I have read that the etiquette for destination weddings is to send the save the dates about 6 months ahead of your wedding (I sent mine out a year and a half early to give plenty of notice) and invitations 2 months... I just don't see that being enough time for the people who wait til the last minute to decide if they are going to come or not, or enough notice for my fiance and I to have the final guest list. 

         

        When do you all plan to send out invitations?

          I want to say we paid around $370 each, including taxes.  

           

          The time really does fly by, especially once you get to the year of your wedding. It will be here before you know it!

            I've spoken with Anel from Adventure quite a few times through email.

             

            I think we are getting the $1499 package to do the TTD session as well. I can't decide, but right now that's what we are booked for.

An absolute dream. I just loved Yamina. She is wonderful!

                Ok, I thought that was ridiculous but just wanted to make sure!  I was thinking sending ours around April or May for a November wedding.

                      Our wedding is September 1st, 2012. So far we think there will be a minimum of 60 and a maximum of 130. I just don't know how great they will be at accomodating such a large group or if we'll all fit in certain areas. Fingers crossed it all works out
