    The responses will get more prompt as you wedding approaches.  They are paying close attention to the weddings coming up now.  I found response time to be weeks, then days, then hours as my wedding approached.  Most everything is done when you get there anyway...stop worrying and let relax (that what makes destination weddings so much nicer )- it will be beautiful.

      Thanks! :)


      Depends how many guests...there are several bar/lounges that are great for passing the time.  Check them all out when you get there, then have your guests meet there while you are taking pictures with your new husband...then you two can meet them there, have some pre-wedding cocktails, then head to the reception.

          I'd just like to say that the communication between myself and my coordinator, Evelyn, has been wonderful. She is so friendly, answers all of my questions, and her responses are very prompt. I cannot wait to meet her and arrive at the resort in 10 DAYS!!!!!!

              Hi ... best wishes for your upcoming wedding.. can't wait to hear all about it.. I just sent a few emails to different photographers.. and got a message that the Melia was charging a big fee to outside photographers.. and that they didn't want to go to the Melia Caribe anymore. If ever you know anything about this.. if it's a new policy or not .. i'd love to find out !

               

              Best of luck Michele

                  They did this for a very short time before they realized it would not fly.  There is no longer a fee outside of the day pass price.

                    The fee is back.  I confirmed it with three people at the resort last week - including my WC.  Luckily my photographer returned my deposit since I had no control over this new policy.  How frustrating...

                      The fee is most definitely back, ladies. Day passes are no longer provided for photographers.
