No i havent booked anything yet... are you using their photographer, or is it better to get your own?? help

If you dont use their photographer you have to pay $500 for using an outside vendor. The one they use (Aldo Tovar) looks super though and his package prices are totally decent. What day is yours? Mine is Nov 29, soooooooooooooon but not soon enough:)

Hey, my wedding is on November 18th,, so that is reasaonable prices for photography.... right, i am so disallusioned that everything is so cheap... wrong! hah,
My wedding is at 1pm, then the dinner starts at 6:30, dont know what to do with guests between? I think we will have the toast and pics on the beach, then... i dont know... let everyone loose to go to the bars? Confused.

Well, the photographers packages start around $800 but if you decide to go with another photographer you need to pay the $500 (which is only a FEE) plus the charges of the outside photographer. Thus, it is cheaper to use Aldo! His pics look awesome too so i am excited about it.
Are you dead set on having your wedding ceremony that early in the afternoon? Honestly...I would suggest diong it later in the day if you can. 1pm is the hottest part of the day and that does leave a super long gap for your guests. They would have to get ready (dresses, hair, makeup) for the ceremony and then they would likely not want to stay in their formal clothes all day in the heat so would go to the beach and or pool and then have to get ready for dinner again. Obviously this is just my opinon...... I am having my cermeony at 4pm, then I am renting the pool bar from 730 to 830 where we will do cocktails, first dance, etc. and then dinner is at 845pm. Technically yes though...you could just set your guests loose in between:) It is your special day and you are the boss, lol.
