Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Arg ladies I have a vent! I just heard back from the wedding coordinator for our resort. Apparently, their policy for off-site photographers is that they must come from outside Mexico, and they must stay a minimum of three nights.

 

So, not only would we have to pay for the package, we'd also have to pay for their flight and room stay. This is the single most ridiculous policy EVER. Why on earth would they require someone from outside Mexico?? The resort photographers are not really that great, to be honest. I REALLY like Ivan Luckie, and think he would be amazing, but according to our resort we can't use him!

 

 

Grrrrrr!

Vent away.......

That is so stupid, whats the difference if your photog is from Mexico or not?
Sorry i really dont know what to say, but like you say that is the single most ridiculous policy EVER!!! Never heard anything like it!!!
Are they flexable with this @ all? maybe worth emailing back just to see if there is any way they could bend the "rules"

Yeah, super stupid. Why would they be ok with someone from the US but not from Mexico? Don't you think they'd want to support the local economy?

They used to let off-site photographers come for a $500 entry fee...apparently, no more. I am beyond mad about this, simply because it doesn't make any sense to me.

Thanks ladies, don't know what I'd do without you all!

I e-mailed Ivan to see if he was familiar with this policy, and see if he had any "sway" with Karisma resorts to get around it. I would e-mail the coordinator about it, but she's kind of a flake (I've heard from other Karisma resort brides) and something tells me she won't be that responsive...

this is completely wrong because they might as well say 'use our photographer only' cause that is basically what they are telling you. I really feel for you especially if you have your heart set on someone. I know at the Barcelo hotels you have to use their own photographers but at least they make it clear from day one.

I havent raised the question at our hotel yet; but i think from what other brides say you just have to by them a day pass.

It might be worth looking at some photographers who will fly out as i know other girls on the forum have done this and it worked out at the same price as hiring someone from Mexico.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
