Yep, I have heard about it and I can't believe they have yet to send out any flights! My husband is deployed in Iraq right now and waiting for the volcanic ash to clear to come back home. I am hoping it will be cleared up by the end of this week!

The ash is terrible!! we go away to spain in 10days so to miss that would be bad but if it was our wedding time I don't know what we would do! i hope it clears up soon and stays that way (everything crossed!!!)

I'm so excited I just had to share my fun!

 

We have been working hard on our OOT bags and just got our Koozies ordered this weekend!!

 

We got the great idea from someone else on here and they say, "To Have and To Hold, To Keep My Beer Cold."

 

I know everyone is going to get a kick out of them!!!!

 

Anyone have any other good ideas or finds for OOT bags they would like to share?

Hi everyone!

 

I am planning a wedding for April 2011 and am considering Moon Palace. I did correspond with a wedding coordinator about using an outside photographer (but from Mexico since it is beyond our budget to fly one in). She told me that Mexican photographers weren't allowed because they have an exclusivity contract with one photography company.

 

I am just wondering what people's thoughts are on the in house photos?

 

Thanks!feedback.gif

From what I understand, if you pay for a room for a photographer they are not consider an outside vendor but rather a guest and as a guest they can take photos just as other guests will be doing. However that does increase the cost of the photographer.

In regards to the in house photographer, they are not bad, however, I wouldn't say they are really great. When you looks at the quality of photos from other photographers in the area, they seem to be much outstanding. Where as the house photographers just seem to be okay. This is just my opinion, as well as, I haven't seen all the photograhers work from MP, only 1 or 2. Having said this, I will still probably go with the MP photographers. It just gets to be too expensive after you add in the room and photography packages.

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • Does he still work?
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
