    Yep, Smile Market is the resort's photographer. So far, I've noticed most of the brides who use them end up loving them. I just couldn't pass up Gonzalo Nunez's work and prices.

        Thank You!!! I just sent an email and I hope they get back to me soon so I can figure all this out :)  Was the pricing the same as on the resorts brochure? Because I really only want the Photos on a disk that I can make into my own album and prints when I get home. Thanks again!!!

        Yes, the photography through the resort is Smile Market and I actually talked directly to them to book my photo package. They worked really quick and emailed back so quickly.

          Yikes!  I am sooo sorry my dear!  You know what you should ask, is if you can still have a cocktail hour?  But have it after dinner and extend it to 2 hours!?!?  Or of course you could try this option before dinner too.  I totally know what you mean about wanting a "real" reception.  There are 20 of us and I didn't want to just do the dinner either.  If the cocktail hour doesn't work, I am sure you can head to the swing bar or one of the bars in the one of the lobbies.  For our cocktail hour, we are bringing our Bose player down, so we don't have to pay extra for the speaker we are renting for the reception.

          I finally got an email from Joannis.....but I have a feeling it is only because I contacted my TA and she called MP and told them they need to get going on things and stop leaving us brides that are leaving in less than a month hanging. My reply from Joannis is in my opinion half-assed. I had asked in my previous email to her what my options were for my reception since I noticed that you have to have a minimum of 20 people for a private reception outside. I asked if I could do dinner in a restaurant and rent a terrace for dancing and she replied that I would have to do dinner in a restaurant and that I could not have a private function because 12 people isn't enough. She didn't offer any other suggestions or anything. I literally felt like crying when I saw that reply. I don't know what I am going to do or if there are any hopes of having any type of event that will feel as close to a reception as I can get. I am not impressed with no suggestions as to what my options were. I guess its back to the drawing board and I will have to figure out what we are going to do for a reception. I leave in 21 days and feel like my miami coordinator has not helped me at all. She has just made me more stressed leaving me in the dark. I really hope that my on-site coordinator contacts me soon since I don't even know who that is either. :(



           

          No, you do not.  I have been to 2 destination weddings and didn't receive them.  I am doing them because it will be a surprise for everyone and I really wanted to show our appreciation with them.  However, we are not doing "favors" at the reception.  It's mostly family, so they won't even notice.

          I'm asking because it's not like any of my guests haven't travelled before and, well, they should know what to bring. I find it more of a pain than anything. I've never been to a destination wedding so I don't know if I am expected to make them. HELP!



           


          YAY!!  Can't wait to read it!!!

          I have posted my wedding review for anyone who is interested...whew, it took forever but I wanted to write it while everything was still fresh in my mind.

           

          The one thing that I forgot when I posted it was about customs and forms. When you complete the customs forms you need to ensure that you keep that little stub of paper with you because they will collect it when you board the plane back to the US. We went down as 4 (mom, our son, hubs and I) but my Mom came back with our son the day after the wedding so we could have some grown up time. The customs agent when we came through mixed up my husband and son's slip of paper and it lead to lots of delays for my Mom and for us when we came back through. So just keep that in mind!

           

          You all have been the greatest support network and I have loved this process feeling like we were all in it together. Best of luck to everyone and may you all have long, happy, and joyous marriages!

            Hi Del Mar,

             

            This may be a stupid question, but I just thought I'd ask!  I'm thinking of using Zuniga as well and it's great news that you don't have to pay the $200/table set up fee if you just pay their set up fee.  Does that mean that you have to order tables and chairs from them though as well?  Or will they just use the tables and chairs from the resort?

             

            Thanks so much!

             

            Kristin

            I have just been in contact with Katie from Zu±iga and she said as long as you purchase something from them (like they got better centre pieces than MP), and pay the set up fee, they will set up decorations for you. YAY! No $200/per table for me baby :D


            I have been reading the threads and thought I could share the good news!

             

            Thank you to who ever posted to contact them, saved my sanity and my pocket :D

              Hello everyone!

               

              So, I start a new job on Monday so I am trying my best to print off some last minute stuff at work while I can for free :)

               

              Here are my OOT bag tags and my maraca tags. Couples get one OOT bag and singles get their own.IMAG0275.jpg

                    Sometimes they can arrange the transportation for you with the resort credits.  But they were all booked by the time we booked our dolphin swim (I would recommend booking it right away just in case).  We got a taxi there and back, and I believe we paid $20 each way.  Wet and Wild is at the same location as the Dolphin Swim, so you don't need separate transport there.  Hope this helps!

                    Both would be a great choice!!  We loved the privacy of El Caribeno, and the food was great... and the meat at Arrecifes was worth LIVING for!!  Lol!  You can't go wrong! :)

                      Zuniga can both decorate the stock tables and chairs that are available at the resort, or they have other option of different styles of chairs and tables you can rent at a cost.  If you just wanted to rent chair sashes, or table runners for the stock talbes and chairs at the resort, Zuniga is willing to do that for you.  Katie from Zuniga is very good, and will contact you back almost immediately with any answers to questions you may have.
