    Hello everyone! I'm Jess and from Western Ma. My fiance and I are getting married at the Gran Caribe Real Resort in Cancun,Mexico on August 7, 2010! I am a gluten free bride and our destination wedding is proving to be tricky! However, thanks to boards like these I have learned a bunch of tricks!

    We are currently looking to book a photographer and I'm wondering if most brides fly their photographers in? We have a GREAT photographer we are interested in, but unsure if we should just go with the on-site guy?

    Any suggestions welcome... any other Gran Caribe brides out there? =)

      OMG...I just posted a Celiac Bride thread!!!! How funny. I am looking for a wedding cake recipe written in spanish so I can give the WC. I sent her my list of restrictions..but I still feel nervous. I am also, researching for a photographer. Usually you would fly them down and pay for their services.

        That is too funny! We ended up getting a cake topped with chocolate covered strawberries... that way they can put some aside (not touching the cake) and I can have those while the guests have the cake. I guess I was not confident in the cake tasting good so that was my solution! =)

        I will have to look up your thread!

          Congrats and to the forum! I researched and hired a photographer from the area I was getting married in. I actually found them on here as they are members of the forum, but its definitely not uncommon to fly your own down. I guess it depends on your budget. Good luck and happy planning!

          Welcome to the forum!
          I too have a gluten allergy. How funny! I didn't really think much about it, I just avoided the foods that I couldn't eat. But, my allergy isn't that bad. My tummy just bloats out to about 5 month pregnant (not an exaggeration either, I have pictures of my tummy when I WAS pregnant to prove it!).
          Anyway, welcome to the forum. I hope you are able to find a lot of helpful information.
