    I'm using the resort videographer- comes with the package. And then maybe seeing if he can stay a bit longer. My FI wants to hire someone but a video is a video and you watch it MAYBE 1x every few years so I think a mediocre one will suffice- but it all depends on priorities!!

    On a side note- I want to make a signature drink or two (rename it after a thing or place of meaning to me and my FI) but use one of their drinks and just rename it, so i emailed the concierge to get their bar menu. See attached for a list of their specialty drinks and the liquor that they have.

      I'm going with the photographer that is included in the ultimate wedding package. I read somewhere on this post that he does decent work. And I would agree with others by saying I would probably watch it once every few years. Good luck! Let us know how it goes since your wedding is 8 months before mine!

        We also used the resort photographer. I thought he did a very good job at capturing everything we wanted. He came to my room and videod some while the photog was there and also visited the guys as they were taking shots and preparing for the ceremony.
        Since we've been married, all of almost 7 months, we've watched it once, and that was right when we got home from our trip.

        o.k., and here are my favs on the drinks.....Ticket to Fly is one they push - it has a ton of alcohol in it and it is yuuumy!! Riviera Maya is the red, green and white one and it's pretty darn good and my all time fav was the Bahama Mama! That was the one I drank alllllllll day at the pool!!
        Also, the Absolut Mandarin was a really good option if you were tired of all the fruity frozen drinks. I drank that at night. Well there you go - - that was my 2 cents

          Amy thank you so much for the menus!

          Lisa we need your 2 cents that’s why we’re here! The coffee I so looked forward to this morning just isn’t doing it for me now…maybe a little Kahlua?

            I'll be showing the video at our 3 post-wedding parties (my home town, his home town, and where we currently live) so I'll be getting good use out of it. I'm happy to hear that everybody has had good experience with the resort videographer, but I'm just hesitant about spending 380$ or more (I've got the free package with no video) until I've seen some examples of his work, and there are none on the website! I've emailed him asking for some but no answer yet.

              Yea, from what I heard, he does decent work. Not really sure why his website sucks so much... oh well!

              We tossed around which wedding package we were going to get and because we are doing a reception afterwards with dinner and everything, we decided on the Ultimate package.

                  I am also looking for a vidiographer service. Lookint to spend about $2000 for the service, but I want some footage outside the wedding as well to be included - does anyone have some contact info that you have investigated?

                    This might be addressed in the drink menu...but I don't have enough points to open it. What kind of liquor is included, do you have to pay more for top shelf booze? That is a great idea about renaming a drink for the cocktail hour!

                      So I'm already married, happily for 4 years LOL I didn't get my husband a gift on our wedding day. I wanted to, I just never got around to it. Some things that friends of mine did were golf pkg for him or for him and his guys to do sometime before the wedding. Another friend did engraved cuff links. I've also heard of jewlery and "guy" stuff like electronics....
