It's funny you mentioned being scared of the number of people that will come.  I'm the same.  I really wanted the pier, but Susana told me only 50 people can fit (it's really 55), but then we kept adding people to our guestlist,  I'm almost hoping people will decline. haha.  

 

Well the chillout terrace is $500/hour which is what we wanted as cocktail hour, if we have it. Plus per person, it just gets so expensive all of a sudden lol.................For the welcome party, you have to pay as well unless it's like 20 people then they can just make reservations.

 

Girl I will be happy with 50 people but his family is dominican and well it's alot of them lol .... I love them so we'll see next month when we send the save the dates lol

Yea, it is an extra cost.  Well, at least you'll get to see his family.  As my mom says, "the more the merrier!"      And you're lucky with the photography.  Right now, that's what I'm looking into.  Either bring someone or use Tropical.

Well figure out the cost of the flight and min 3 night stay for 2 and look at that versus Tropical Pictures. Their packages are so expensive and I heard good things about them but you only get a certain amount of pictures and time and I'm so OCD with making sure everything flows that putting me on a time constraint will make me Bridezilla, guaranteed.

 

At least with the guys I'm flying over they will do as I please lol - or my brother will give them orders for me (they are good friends) lol lol

I am actually flying out 2 guys who are photographers/videographers and have their own company (friends of my brothers)

It's cheaper to fly them out and pay for a 3 night stay and I get everything I want and then some.

 

Tropical is so limited and I was getting frustrated like you and thought about this plan and my brother is backing me up so so far they accepted and I will get all my pictures, not a certain amount and certain time. Since they are staying as my guests then I don't have to pay any fee because they are part of my wedding regardless and them being professionals is just a perk!

 

I have a photographer willing to fly out with us from here for free (just in exchange for a free vacay) but the video thing is annoying me.

The photographer doesn't know any videographers willing to do the same?

 

The only thing I can think of is getting a tripod/stand for a camcorder and have someone do it for you if you want to save some $$$

MrsD and Jali,  do you girls have the details on what's included in the packages they offer at Tropical Pictures?  I think I only have the price list for them, but Susana never e-mailed me anything else on them.  For some reason I have a file on my computer that has Coresfilms video and photo.  The whole time I thought it was Tropical Pictures, but I'm thinking I got this file from another resort when I was looking at their wedding packages. LOL.

And have you girls notice the "option to personalize wedding dessert for reception?"  Does anyone know what that is?  If not I will e-mail WC.

no, it's a family friend who's done all of my parties. I wouldn't trust anyone to do the video for me, so i might have to pay TP

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
