        I am getting married in November 2011 at Dreams Tulum, has anyone got their dress yet? Or booked their photographer?

          I am a November 2011 bride at Dreams Cancun and I do have my dress and my photographer.  I don't think those things need to be done at this point, but I have been engaged since this past June and there was no way I could not start planning/buying.  The dress was ordered in July and has already arrived and is being stored at my parents' house.  I have to limit myself to one visit per month to try on the dress :-)  As for the photographer - I am brining a local one to Mexico with me.  We had him do engagment pictures at a couple of weeks ago and once we loved his work we went ahead and booked him for the trip.

           

          I have heard about some of the best photographers in the Riviera Maya (like Del Sol) can get booked pretty far out in advanace.  However, those types of photographers are often out of most couples' price range.  If you stick with the photographer provided by the resort (if getting one of the packages), then you won't have a problem reserving your date.

            Wow you are super organised. Doesnt November seem like such a long time away I dont know how I'm going to be able to stand it. What date are you getting married? I have found a few photographers I like and who are available just trying to make the decision now, I am swaying towards Sascha Gluck.

             

            You must be so thrilled to have your dress - I bet it is stunning. I am going shopping for mine next week!!

              November does seem like a long time off - but it seemed like forever when I got engaged back in June.  So I am just happy to be under the 1 year mark.  We are getting married on Saturday November 5th and are having our At Home Party (drinking, dancing, and cupcakes) on Friday November 18th.  We are having the party so soon after because we wanted to get everything in before the holidays.

               

              This site has so many reviews and examples of photography by all of the major photographers in the Riviera Maya - so there should be plenty of info to help you make your decision.  You might even be able to ask a bride what price she was charged to see if there is room to negotiate!

               

              Here are pictures of me in the sample of my dress taken at the dress shop .  Pardon the look of the bridal store - it is one of those places where you don't get a personal assistant, but it keeps the proces down.  If you are able to go to one of those on a week day you still get personal service while benefiting from the lower prices.  I am not a very ornate person, so this dress was perfect for me...

                  Thanks!  I don't have much of a figure (esp up top), so this dress was able to follow my curves on the bottom and disguise the top.  I am not terribly girly, so the ruffles on the bottom were perfect for me - just a touch of feminine.
