Thanks for your comments on my engagement pictures. My fiance and I are not photogenic people, so when we saw our engagement pictures we knew we wanted to bring this guy with us to Cancun. I feel like photography is the single most important aspect of a wedding, because 20 years down the road that is what you are going to have to remember the day by.
I have gotten so much out of the planning threads and wedding reviews from this thread, that you can be sure I will be putting up very detailed ones when it is my turn. In fact, I have been composing my planning thread in Word as I go along so it isn't as much effort right before the wedding.
The main thing about planning your wedding at most any of the resorts, and it is true for Dreams, is that the coordinators have a lot of brides to work with. So don't expect a quick response from them until your wedding is just a few months out. The frustration you feel now will turn to appreciation when they focus on you and your wedding when it is your turn. Also, I know that Dreams recently changed their photographer, but most (if not all) of the brides on this forum reserved their wedding long enough ago that they are still contracted to get the old photographer (Juan Navarro). So you might want to check out the work of the new photographer and see if the quality and style are what you want for your wedding.
