    Hey Everyone!

    I read in here that others were having trouble getting through to Ramon as well.  I sent my planning form almost a month ago and have emailed it several times, but I don't even get a response back at least saying he or Anel received it. I know they are busy but a simple email at least letting me know they have it would be nice!   I also was hoping to get an estimate of the total cost of the wedding, so that my fiance and I know how much to prepare for.  Did others get an estimate before they went down there?  Thanks ladies!

      Llkrik1010, I didn't receive a response when I sent in my planning form either. Ramon was a lot more responsive closer to my wedding date. I just had my wedding here yesterday. Everything worked out well and Ramon did a great job putting all the details together for our reception.

        Congrats maytai5dh2! Very exciting!

        Thank you for your response!  It makes me feel better!  Did you find that the price that you paid was similar to what you priced it out as?  Were you able to negotiate?  

        Enjoy the rest of your trip!

            It appears that all the time slots are available for the day we're looking for but I don't consider that a great resource as it seems they take a while to confirm time slots so someone could potentially have their info in already. I'm having a tough time deciding on whether to use the legal ceremony or to get the paperwork done here and just have the spiritual ceremony down there. Any thoughts on that? What have/are other people doing?

              We have definitely decided on doing the legal ceremony at home. I could be wrong but it just looks like such a hassle ~ paperwork, blood work, how far in advance you and your witnesses have to arrive, etc. I'd rather go to the courthouse back home and not have to worry about any of that "technical" stuff once I get to Mexico!! What day are you looking at??

                Right now we're hoping for February 20, 2013 but we're still waiting to see if we can get a better deal traveling at a different time in February.

                  I am not sure about bringing a make-up artist in as I used the one at the resort, but for the photographers they only charged for a day pass each. Much better than a lot of the other resorts in the area! And I had a photographer included in the wedding package and was able to use him for our welcome cocktail party instead of at the wedding, which was great.

                    Thanks Joda! We're going to do the same thing, use the photographer from the package at our Welcome Party. Were you happy with the way your hair and makeup turned out??

                      Have you booked the photographer for your wedding yet? Who are you going to use? We hired del Sol, we loved them!

                       

                      I was happy with my hair and make-up, overall I thought it looked great. I will be honest my hair did have a few curls that escaped the bobby pins so it wasn't perfectly neat. I don't mind, and also my hair is super fine and super thin, so it is hard to manage in cases like this where I have it done up, and it was also extremely windy on our wedding day. If you hair is more normal, it wouldn't be a problem though, haha! I also did a trial so that I knew what it would look like for the wedding.

                       

                      I have included some pictures in different lighting and from different angles so you can see what she did.
