If so where (possible name) and did you order it once you were there or arrange ahead of time?

    Thanks!

    Hi there!!!  I actually used Simply Classic Creations.  No one could tell that they were fake!!!  We just wrapped the bouquets in plastic bags and packed them with light light clothing on top.  They were perfect.  And for my bouquet, the MOH bouquet and the two bouts we paid 115 and that included the shipping.  We were able to use the complimentary bouquet and bout as an altar piece instead.

      Congratulations! I haven't been on on forum in forever. I just got back from Mexico and was able to check out Playacar for my wedding coming up in Nov. 2012. I loved the hotel but the only thing is that it's too small for the amount of people that are coming. :( I fell in love with the resort right away. I hope you had an amazing wedding :)

        Far, it was amazing!  Are you sure it's too small?

          Hi Everyone!

           

          So - taking some of your advice, we e-mailed Wilma just to confirm that we were able to use an outside vendor for photography & she said that we have 3 options.  A.) use the Smile Market, who is contracted through the resort B.) Use La Luna or Del Sol - with a purchased day pass, or C) use an outside vendor, but that person(s) must stay two nights at the hotel?????  

           

          We're really stressing out now because we read that many of you all were able to use an outside photographer without any problem -  have any of you heard this??   We are currently trying to book Ivan Luckie - we really don't want to use the resort photographers because their photos look a little - cheesy......  Del Sol's pricing was a little too much - Ivan Luckie seems to be EXACTLY what we are looking for.

           

          Help?????

            Hi Chelsea,

             

            I'm sorry but I'm really not sure.  Our photog was my best friend who was staying with us for 4 nights. Wish I could help!

              Hey Chelsea,

               

              We are getting married July 2nd at Playacar Palace and are using Derek and Lorena from PhotosinCancun.  (They have been fabulous and we love their photography is beautiful!)  The Miami WC put it in our contract that we would be using them and would just need to purchase a day pass for each of them.  I wouldn't stress about it just yet.  I am sure  if you let your WC know that photography is very important to you and you can only afford to purchase the day pass for him they may budge.  Good Luck!

                Hi Bethany!

                 

                That's soo nice to hear & very reassuring.   Do you have the email address for Derek @ Photos in Cancun?   They're one we haven't heard of and in looking at their website, they look awesome & very reasonably priced.  We'd love to get in touch with them!

                 

                Thanks!

                  Believe me...Photography is really important to us as well, but we're on a budget too.  His email is mrderekcampbell@gmail.com  They are really good with communication and have shot at Playacar Palace a lot.  You should check out their underwater photography.  It is so cool, but I want to re-sell my dress, so no TTD session for me.  Oh just to let you know, Lorena is also going to do my make-up.  I am a professional make-up artist and she uses great products and her work looks great in photos.

                      hey all...just wanted to pass along a recommendation for a photographer in the Mayan Riviera.... Lori Lemieux at Sweet Fire Photography. 

                       

                      Unfortunately she is booked for our wedding, but check out her website - www.sweetfirephotography.com.  

                       

                      Her work is incredible & she seems super nice!
