One of the girls also posted a photographer comparision a while back with what you get for roughly what price which I found quite useful I still have the doc with a few additional that I added myself if you want to have a look?

That would be so awesome of you! Can you e-mail it to celinadrake at gmail.com? Thank you!

Here is the doc girls. Remember this isnt my original document so kudos goes to RaychelRae for this i've just added 2 on that werent originally listed.

 

I also removed some annotations from the original poster.

 

Found this very useful when looking for my photographer as the prices gave me an idea who was in my budget range

Boooo...I have to get 38 more posts before I can download attachments sad.gif Maybe I'll go comment on everyone's thread with just a smiley face to get there...ha! just kidding! I did e-mail Ivan Luckie though, and he has ALREADY e-mailed me back (literally 10 minutes after I e-mailed him) so hopefully will know prices soon. His photos are AMAZING! And he seems like such a nice guy!

So frustrating...but oh well wink.gif


I so know what you mean! Although, Sean (my FI) doesn't even remember to close the cupboard doors and drawers when he's done with them, so I'm not holding out too much hope that he'll remember to put his ring on after work. Hence, getting a cheap-o ring! Ten bucks says he loses it within 6 months wink.gif
Im not making any decisions yet either as at the mo its only us 2 who have booked!!!! As soon as i know a number, like you thats when we will start to arrange the rest, i think at the mo im jst happy to have it booked :-) But it is frustrating though!

Sounds as if i'm lucky with my FI then, hes looking forward to wearing his ring he's a business analyst so no worries with him being electrocuted lol x
Awwww, your rings are beautiful... no wonder you both want to wear them, they are lovely.... dont really know what i want yet to be honest but you ladies will be the first to see when i do :-)
Oooo you are lucky, im just hoping FI changes his mind A) when we buy them or B) after getting used to it after the wedding!!!! LOL x

Hey aella, Oooo, Dom Rep, we have been there twice and love it. Both times we stayed at an Iberostar resort and we love them. We just chose a different resort for our wedding so it was something new to us :-) Didnt stay at the Iberostar Bavaro though but if you choose that and its anything like the ones we have stayed in then you'll love it :-) We also stayed in an Iberostar resort in Cuba.... Let us know what you decide coz im nosey that way :-)

Hey Ladies,

 

Just noticed the ring chatter :)

I just wanted to quickly mention ebay as an option for rings! We got my ring made but got my husbands titanium stove pipe comfort fit band on ebay for about $20! You cant always find what you are looking for but its worth a try!

 

Oh and on the photographer thing, there are lots of photographers who are willing to travel for destination weddings (there are a tonne on the forum) if there are any you really like it doesn't hurt to message them because if they already have a wedding down there around your wedding date, they might be able to make a deal!

 

Gosh I wish I was planning a wedding again! (am I sickhuh.gif I love this stuff!!!)

Hope you've started reading the many many pages of the dreams riviera cancun thread loads of useful info there, esp info that'll take you at least a month to get from Ana!

Have you arranged anything else yet?

21aholden - Welcome and congrats!! Dreams Riviera Cancun was one on our short list. Beautiful resort! Look forward to hearing your wedding storeys :o)

 

As for photos our resort hotel pic's are OK. I think anyhow. I can't justify spending out £££'s on Elizabeth Medina but if money were no issue i would defo go for her!

 

The deal we looked at our hotel includes for $1450 - 100 printed pictures (6X8”) placed

in an album, the same 100 pictures placed digitally on a CD for future prints

And an edited DVD of approximately 40 minutes

 

This is what our friend had and she was really pleased. I know resort photographers are not the best but to be honest i will prob only have 3/4 photos on the wall when we get home so i'm sure i'll find that out of 100 prints. Plus we get the DVD which will be nice to watch!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
