    Small world!!

     

    We looked into a lot of photographers in Mexico. We ended up going with one from home just because we wanted to have our engagement session in NYC. Have you looked at Sascha Gluck or Samuel Luna? There's also another one we reached out to named Alejandro Aguirre, Fine Art Studio (WE loved their work and prices!).
     

    Nora Bohanon also has great prices even though she's based out of Chicago. Check her out! Also check out Ron Soliman who does destination weddings. He's based in the US but works with you on budget.

    We are getting married at the GPR on Nov 26, 2010... I have so much to do still! We have about 21 people coming but there may be a few more. Bought my dress and should be getting it at the beginning of Oct. Still need to buy our rings, bridesmaids and groomsmen attire, finish OOT bags.... eeeek! 

     

    I haven't even booked a photographer yet, just can't decide! We want to bring a photog from our hometown but it's just not in the budget. I'm having a hard time picking one in Mexico without meeting them first.

            I live in Branford CT :) lots of us from the Northeast here

             

             

            Ughhh this Mexicana thing has me totally stressed out to. Some of my guests who booked through Expedia got calls today letting them know that even though Mexicana says they are honoring all their flights so far they have been canceling them when you arrive at the airport.

             

            They told our guests that Expedia tried to get refunds back from Mexicana but they are refusing to. So they told my guests to dispute it with their credit card companies. I don't even know what to do. Even if we all got our money back flights are three times more than what we paid in Jan/Feb last year. I have 85 guests who are all flying Mexicana.

             

            I called my TA and I am just praying for good news. I don't understand how its not Mexicana's responsibility to transfer you to another plane and it should be at no cost to us.

              I just got that sick feeling in my stomach .... how the F can you show up and they tell you your flight it canceled? Im going to wait until September, apparently only "august flights" are messed up according to Mexicana.

                Ya I feel sick to. This is def not the stress any of us need so close to our dates. Lets pray they get bailed out. I am trying to stay calm but with all my guests calling me its making the situation far worse.

                 

                I will let you guys know what advice my TA offers.

                    I really hope Mexicana fixes everything that's going on. It makes NO sense that they can't figure out a way to transfer you to another flight from like a sister company or something. And they should definitely have to pay you back if they completely cancelled your flight. At least we still have a few months to go, imagine if you were getting married in 2 weeks and flying through them! How frustrating...

                    I'm sure they'll have it figured out soon. They'll have to. But I'd still keep looking on kayak.com for cheap flights. I know Delta was having RT flights for around $300 from CA the other day. Which is a GREAT deal. Usually the best prices are released Mon-Wed. Good luck girls!!
