I was just looking for some info on Juan's prices so this is helpful!

Make sure to ask him for his most recent prices, we used him November of 2012 but I believe his prices were going up slightly. As for that being said, yes we would have paid much more for him as we loved his work and working with him that much!

As you can see by my response to kimmystew above I did love working with him and his assistant! Every person who was there at our wedding or has seen our pictures since we have been back have had nothing but major compliments on his work on our photos! He was fantastic to work with and we had our pictures all on dvd's SO quick! it's a different resort but in the fine print for the Barcelo it says they do not allow outside vendors but of course once you ask around they do, but for a fee! lol! My hubby and I both agree that what we paid for photos was well worth it and even more!

Hey ladies ! We are still in beautiful Jamaica, but I do plan on posting when we get back. Although I really wanted to note the before we get back that although online it says ROR has alarm clocks, we are staying in the Junior Suite and it definitely does not have one. dazeydawl, we ended up bringing enough Oit stuff for 19 guests and we were able to fit it in our luggage and we were underweight! I should note thought that we have a 5 year old who also had a medium size suitcase and she got the same upgraded luggage weight we did (30kgs each). I just split everything between our 3 bags. Since we got married off resort and had a decorator, we did not have to worry about bringing extra decor items. The wedding was Amazing and it was definitely the right choice for us to get married off resort at Firefly. It is unbelievably beautiful there! Even though our wedding is done, I am still enjoying reading everyone's planning activities!

Have you tried online? I found teeny starfish and shells online and had them shipped to me. They'll probably be too small for you as they went in our wedding favor bottles. I just googled 'starfish Canada' and then made sure any site that came up in my search I double checked the shipping policy and if they shipped to Canada. Good luck!

Congrats! What resorts are you looking into. I'm two months into planning and keep changing my mind, so interested in what others are choosing. I'm planning for Jan 2014, so I need to make a decision soon! This site is definitely helpful!
