I'm using TA also. I'm also considering Azul Beach. Are either of you dealing with Cecile Alix as the wedding coordinator at AB? Are you using Caribe as the photographer? I would really like to use Claudia Rodriquez but they are charging $500 to bring her in. What are you ladies using for music--are you contracting a DJ?

Thanks for your replies--

BTW---we're looking at 7/2/11.

No, I have Tiffany as my WC. I am using Claudia for the extra $500 and now that I am getting closer to the date (and when the money is due - haha) I think I might be paying too much for pictures. They are amazing, but really, how can you screw pictures up there?

 

I am doing a beach wedding, private reception and cocktail hour - for about 40 people its less than $10k.

 

The hotel is more expensive, $3k for a week per couple, so see if you can get some good deals for your guests and room prices.

 

I liked the small inimate property but also loved Hacidenda Tres Rios as well. They have some good deals going on now too.

 

Good luck!

I'm curious as to how you got Claudia Rodriguez? Maybe the rules had changed by the time I booked at AB (last fall) but they told me that the only two photographers I could have from Mexico had to be Caribe or Matias Cano since that's who they were contracted with. Any other photographer had to come from outside Mexico. We're bringing ours from the US and paying the $500 fee. I love him and wouldn't want to change photogs but would be annoyed if Karisma gave me the wrong info.

japonick: We are also doing a private reception, though not a cocktail hour. We are bringing our own music. We would love to have a band but they're sooo expensive there! As for WC, I've never heard of yours, sorry!

I got Claudia RIGHT AFTER they changed their procedures. Tiffany sent me all of the info with Claudia then told me I could not have her. But once they realized they sent me the wrong info, they let me keep her. This was May 2009.

 

I bet flying in your photog is cheaper - I cant now that the hotel is booked!!!

You could if you had my photog!! He has a house in Puerto Morelos. That's why we chose the $500 fee versus the 3 night stay. $500 is a lot cheaper than 3 nights at AB!

I have no idea what Claudia Rodriguez's packages look like, so I can't say for sure. All we're paying for ours is his airfare plus the $500 to Karisma. And the picture money, of course! It's extra money we weren't counting on but worth it in our opinion.

Now I see how you got her. Way back almost a year ago. Makes sense since I didn't book with Karisma until Sept. 2009.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • 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.
