When we met in Cancun with our WC, I told her that we had friends that would be taking pictures. She asked if they were staying at the resort and I said yes, no further questions. They actually were part of our guest list for 5 nights, so I wasn't too worried. But we did have a couple that came with a day pass and they could have just as easily been the photographers.

I never expected this many problems..Still have not heard from WC? how long does that take? I was told could NOT use any credits towards purchase of dvd...but seeing others say different. This is really getting ridiculous. Our experience with some of the people in Miami was insane. The resort is gorgeous and the staff is amazing, I can't understand how their wedding department is such a mess. Please inform of any news you guys have. We'll have to meet for a drink! We'll be there same time! Jackie & George
We are members, so automatically got a superior deluxe room. The wedding group was all located at the far end of the Sunrise section, close to the wedding gazebo and and Nizuc. Some of us upgraded to "executive suites" which were basically the same aside from a pillow menu, extended room service menu, and being located next to the pool. I would definitely suggest requesting a specific section that is near the pool. I found it to be a pain walking back and forth each day. On the wedding day, they gave us access to a nearby room for facilities. It cost us $200 to upgrade the room.
I would definitely make a list before you go of how you plan on spending your palace money. Most of our guests left with extra, but we completely wiped out ours. We were able to put three rounds of golf on our room. I don't see why they would limit it to $300, since it costs $260 for one round. Hubby brought his own shoes and it was definitely worth saving $15 a round.
