I am! We just tried to get something different at every stage. two hot and two cold apps, we did chicken and beef apps and fish for dinner. That way we can try a little of everything. Also if you have a large portion of people who are allergic to fish or something it might be easier to go with the chicken or beef. Thats really the only thought I put into it. I can't go down and sample the food so its pretty much a guessing game. I'm hoping the atmosphere will be what people remember!

good point, its so hard to make a choice for everyone. I was wondering if we could mix hot and cold  hors d'oeuvres , I'm glad we can. When is your wedding, magirl?

I visited the Now Sapphire in the beginning of June.  My Fiance and I were there celebrating an anniversary so we got a private dinner on the beach.  The hotel photographer took pictures of us.  We viewed the pictures, and personally, I did not like any of them.  I felt that the pictures we took ourselves were better.  I was not impressed and for my wedding, we are hiring La Luna photography.  I like the photojournalistic approach though, and she did not seem to do that.  It may just be my personal preference.

Hey Vanessa56,

 

I am using the hotel photographer since I am getting the Divine Package and it comes with it.  My sister is a photographer and she will be attending my wedding there so she will be doing candid shots throughout the week and during the reception.  I will mainly use the hotel photographer for the ceremony.  I have seen some of their pics and I thought they were nice.  I guess it depends on your budget and what you expect out of the quanity of photos taken.

Ladies, Thanks so much for the feedback. We're trying to do the wedding on a tight budget, so the feedback is very helpful. We are also going with the Divine package, so we were considering using the hotel photographer to save some money. I guess we'll have to wait to see how many people are coming or work a photographer into the budget otherwise. I have also heard good things about La Luna photographers from some of the other ladies on the board.

    • 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.
