    Hi Tammy...can you tell me where I would sign up for this? I've looked around and I'm stumped. Thank you!

        Celina -

        If you have not used a TA yet, I would defo put her on your short list to consider.

          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.

                      Oh yeah that's so handy! Claudia for 8 hours is around $4k. Eh, I'll find a way. Her work is amazing.
