Saza - Yes, I got my photos while I was still there with my hubby on our "honeymoon". Our wedding was on Friday, and we received our pictures on Tuesday. If you are leaving soon after your wedding, they may need to mail them. But make sure they know when you're flying out, and they may be able to accomodate a quicker turnaround time if needed.

Boo - I loved Elizabeth Medina's portfolio too! I think she required for the client to pay for one night's stay at the resort since she lives so far away, and there just wasn't enough in our budget for that. She's going to be amazing!

Oh wow, so beautiful and close! thanks so much!

 

Mlynnea - did you find other cool spots to shoot? Anything with a Mexican feel or unique? I felt in love with the area of Maroma beach, we actually chose the beach first then the hotel :) so def. looking forward to beach pictures and TTD in the water, but I would also love some unique local. I love the pictures of the quient mexican multi-colourful town but that is a fairy ride away so too far, but wonder if there is anything close with bright buildings? Thanks!!!

its two different charges. USD 180 if I remember correctly just for the ceremony but I believe most ladies say its worth it so that you could hear. I wonder if the resort videographer takes audio straight from the speakers or he just have a mike on the video camera... in any case its another USD 180 per hour for the reception - so it adds up quick!

Lynnea--

 

Does the videographer have a microphone on his camera? It's just going to me and my fiance, so we're not going to have the sound system, but I wonder if the videographer won't be able to hear us?

Sound System - For the ceremony it was $180 plus tax, I don't remember exactly what it was for the reception, but it was an hourly charge, and I know it was over $100/hr. It was definitely worth it both for the ceremony and reception. It was quite windy on the day of our ceremony, so I don't think our guests would've been able to hear us without it. We didn't hire a DJ for our reception, we just had an Ipod, so we had to rent the speakers to play our music then as well.

 

Photo locations - (Boo) We didn't use anything else for our photos besides the hacienda down the beach and the resort. I really liked the colorful buildings on Isla Mujeres as well, but it just wasn't going to work out with timing and money. There are actually quite a few different locations within the resort that can be nice backgrounds. We used the hammocks, the stairs to the lobby, the coffee cafe, the lobby - we made the rounds ;-)

 

 

Videographer microphone - Our videographer did have a separate microphone that he used to capture the sound from the ceremony. He actually taped it to the sound system microphone. If you're not going to use the sound system, he'll probably either clip it to someone's shirt, or just have you guys hold it.

    • 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.
