Wow, speech language pathology, that's awesome! One of my bridesmaids is going to school for that, too. I don't think we're doing a videographer. Is it around the same price as a photographer? That is a long time not to get your video, especially the couple that got married in Jan. If they're well known and have good reviews, I would go for it still. I would talk to them about the time frame of them sending you the video though. Maybe you can make an agreement with them in your contract, that if they don't send it in 4 months you get partial money back.
You're going to have a great time at your site visit in October! Are you doing the tasting too? Will this be your first time there?
Sara is normally pretty quick at emailing back. If you're still waiting I can send you the prices. I know she does normally require at least 4 bridesmaids to get make-up done since she has to fly there. I did get Adrian from Styling Trio Riviera Maya to go down a little in price since I had 4 bridesmaids doing hair and make-up.
I'm still trying to choose between Juan Navarro and Gonzalo Nunez for photography. So many decisions!
I did e-mail the woman you mentioned for the lanterns and she sent me the same prices. I just have to see if she'll only do the lanterns without doing our flowers. Thanks again for her e-mail!

Lot's going on Are you two getting a videographer? I have been in contact with mediamorfosis (who did marisa and luis's wedding in 2009 on the H3R website). I LOVE their work... check out their blog, i have spent hours upon hours watching the videos!!) I told Luis I was planning on booking them, but he warned me that two couples, one from Jan and one from May, still have not received their videos from their weddings... so it made me worry a little.
Just booked our trip in Oct. to talk to vendors and sign contracts with everyone! YAY! We will be going Oct6th-Oct9th can't wait!!
I emailed Sara the make up artist and am waiting on a response.
As far as renting the lanterns from Saku... u should email her and ask. It seems like she has a lot more then just flowers.
