    I started researching some of the resorts at Punta Cana and the prices are very reasonable. I would like to contact the wedding coordinator at Ocean Blue/Sands and the Iberostar Punta Cana, but I cannot find a direct email. Does anyone have this info? Also, any information on these resorts would be greatly appreciated!

      I am getting married at the Ocean Sands/Blue resort in a month, any info just ask, I have ton's. I am happy with my choice, except for the photographer dillemma, they only seem to have resort photogs in the DR.

      My wedding is for 45 people so I can help with info on the cost of things. What date are you looking at?

      You want to direct it to Julisa Fiqueroa, she is the wc at the resort an she is wonderful.

        Kelly,
        Thanks for the info. A travel agent I contacted yesterday suggested that I stay closer to Texas (ie. Playa or Cancun). She has a point because some of our family will only be joining us for 2 or 3 nights. Ocean sounds like a great resort, I will definitely contact Julisa once I can straighten out where we are going to get married.

          Well let me know if you want cost comparitive's for the wedding aspect of it, I can give you the number's. I can tell you that compared to what some of the girls are paying in Mexico, compared to what I am paying are huge differences, the Ocean Blue is extremely reasonable. I do not feel I have had to downgrade anything, except the photographer, but as I said before I can better tell you after my wedding (not long now) if the quality is all I hope.

          I happen to love Mexico though, I don't believe you can go wrong in that choice, happy deciding!

            Hi Kelly,

            I saw your post and the dilemma you are having with the photographer. I am in the same boat not sure what to do. I have someone who will shoot for me. He shoots for the CFL, NFL, Maxium Magazine, so he does good work and only wants me to pay for his trip - 1500. However, I am just a bit skeptical as he is going to put everything to disk and we have to print frame and create our own album so that is a lot of work.
            I got a qoute from Juan Carlos Tapia photgraphy and for 12 hours in total of shoot he wanted $8000. He does great work but $8000 is soooooooo expensive. So I feel sick on what to do, since I want fabulous pics.
            Are you getting the resort to do the video portion of it too??
            Do you have direct email to the photographer at all.

              I am going to get the resort to video the ceremoy, I am going to have the resort photographer take pics, I am going to bring examples of what I want. My daughter, Kenda, who is a fairly good photographer is going ot also take pictures, I have promised her a really good camera next week, so her quality will be better. Kenda is good, but I need a photographer, I am just crossing my fingers that one of the three they have will be pretty good.

              I agree I think $8000.00 is too much money, no matter how good you are, I promise that I will e-mail you my pictures from the photographer, and if you can hold off till the end of August to make decisions, you will be better advised by me.

              I think E and I are going to head to Mexico for our honeymoon, next pril/may and I will do a ttd session with one of the wonderful photographers there, but I will decide that after I see how my photographer will be.

                    I would love to just have all my pictures on a disc. Then you have the freedom to do whatever you want with them. But I really love playing with pictures on the computer.
