    roxmysockz - where did you get your rings from? We looked in Ernest Jones (MIL works in there so we would get 30% off if we get them there)! But i have seen some nice ones in Goldsmiths. My ering was from Fraser Hart but was expensive so we are tightening our budget for the wedding rings.

      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
      These are the photo packages we have been quoted :

      * $350 20 Pix or $450 20 Pix + Video
      * $450 30 Pix or $550 30 Pix + Video
      * $550 40 Pix or $650 40 Pix + Video

      Now I havent a clue if these are good prices at all, I only got these last week from TA. Now we will be having the resotrt photog as we just cant afford to bring in an outside vendor, we can-not afford to pay for them to stay at the resort. I think my resorts photog is Juan Carlos and i have been to his website to have a nosey at his work and to be honset I really like it so i have no problems at all using him what so ever,.

      I was just wondering if anyone here knows if the prices ive quoted are any good?
      Now i have emailed Juan Carlos myself and got a reply saying he was busy and would send me a price list but that was ages ago.... so i need to see what he comes back with.....

      xoxo

          I would have loved Elizabeth Media however her prices would have cost me more than my wedding package!!! Ivan was almost as good as her for 1/3 of the price!

          We went to Hatton Gardens in London mine was a custom made ring as I hadnt seen anything that I liked with the right cut of diamond they also can be quite flexible on cost! Have you considered palladium rings?? our bands are both palladium and its a much cheaper metal really helped keep our budget as close as possible and let me have some bling!

          Nicyx - those prices seem pretty good to me! esp if you like their work x

              Hi Nicy

              I've just checked our photographers lowest packages and this is what it says.....

              Package 1:
              *60 printed pictures (6X8”) placed on an album and an edited DVD of approximately 40 minutes
              $ 770.00 USD
              *60 digital pictures placed on a CD for future prints and an edited DVD of approximately 40 minutes
              $1,010.00 USD

              So i think your prices are quite good and if your happy with the photographer on site i wouldn't worry hun!

                I was talking to my sis in the week and she said for her wedding they got about 80 pix, that was until she brought out her album and counted 40, she was laughing her head off she said she really thought she had LOADS AND LOADS... which she has at 40 but it goes to show that 40 could actually be enough.
                Also i know guests will be taking pix (even if it is just stephens sis n hubby) and if we like any they take we can have them too so im sure we would be ok with pix. I think i definatly want the dvd too :-)
                I just wish TA could be more definate about the weddng package and photog package etc, as soon as the weddng date is confirmed in the next few weeks i will just email WC at the resort and try to deal straight with her, i believe though mine is reluctant to dal with us this far in advance but i will just pester until i can confirm 1 or 2 things!!! haha :)

                Sorry i hope i havent confused you with what to do? Personally i think 100 pix is definatly a lot, but if thats what you want go for it.... like you say yours and FI family would also benefit :-) Even with 80 pix i think FMIL and your mum would still benefit :-) xoxo

                  Ooooo, im getting good vibes from you lovelys about the pix, that can only be a good thing :-) I just hope when i talk to WC she quotes the same prices as what the TA quoted, :-)

                  Michelle im sure there are more packages our photog would do but it may work out roughly about the same for 60 pix as yours?!!
                  i think we would prob go for the 30 or the 40 package.

                  FI was laughing at me yesterday as i was going on and on about allsorts and he was saying why do i need to sort everyting now and need to know everytihng now, and i was saying coz in my head im panicking.. i hate not knowing EVERYTHING there is to know and also not knowing for definate....

                  honestly my head hurts sometimes, i was trying to tell him it must be a bride thing as im sure the girls on BDW are the same as me.... I wish i was just laid back and let it all happen and i know on the day i will prob look back at all my stressing and laugh and FI will say "told you so" haha xox

                    Have you guys seen the legal ceremony that some have posted saying it must have included??

                    Mexican Civil Marriage Advices

                    Ladies and gentlemen, according to the laws of this country we are gathered here to join the bonds of Matrimony which is an honorable status:

                    _____________ (groom) and _______________________ (bride)

                    Seeing it is a very important act, I would kindly ask everybody to remain in silence.
                    As witnesses of this important act, there are present here:

                    1. ____________________________ 2. _______________________

                    3. ____________________________ 4. _______________________

                    Who will sign the marriage document.

                    A great Mexian philosopher of the nineteenth century, Mr. Melchor Ocampo, wrote in his legendary letter, the following words that until today are always read in our
                    wedding ceremonies, "marriage", it says is the only legal and moral way to found a family, to preserve mankind and avoid imperfections of the human being who are only able to obtain the perfection of the human race through matrimony in a conjugal duality. Men and women have the same rights, but it is important to observe their respective obligations. Both of you should have respect, fidelity, trust and assistance to one another and also tenderness and love, much love. Do not fight with one another, use your heads and your hearts to correct something wrong.
                    Both of you should be aware of the great responsibility of being parents, because you should provide your children with attention, good example to follow during the rest of their lives. I now ask two questions to your witnesses.

                    1. Are ________________ (groom) and __________________ (bride) persons you know well?
                    2. And are there any objections for them to be joined in legal marriage in Mexico?

                    __________________ (groom) do you accept ____________________ (bride) as your beloved and wedded wife, __________________ (bride) do you accept _____________ (groom)
                    as your beloved and wedded husband?

                    _________________ (groom) and __________________ (bride) after ratifying your wish to get legally married by means of your signature and your witnesses' signature and in the presence of your family and friends in the name of the law and the society and with the authority from the Solidaridad Municipal, here in Quintana Roo, Mexico, I now declare you husband and wife.

                    You may kiss the bride.


                    CONGRATULATIONS!


                    Playa del Carmen, Solidaridad, Quintana Roo. The _____________ (day/month) of _________ (year)

                    El C. Oficial 07 del Registro Civil.
