    Has anyone heard anything of MVP hair and makeup? The site looks good as far as the galleries and the reviews have been very good??

        I am getting Delsol as my photographers, I don't think I have to pay the outside vendor fee..I think just the day pass?? 350 bucks for them to come in is crazy. I might just get them a room if that is the case.. which I saw on the forum that's what some brides did.

The hair and makeup artist that you got quotes from seem expensive? I was hoping to honestly only spend $200-$250 on hair? and the resort still charges $350 to get an outside hair and makeup artist?!! That is insane. I have not seen or hear anything about the hair and makeup at the resort. I am very particular about that.   What are you thinking about flowers? Are the resorts flowers really expensive do you know? So, you are making your own invitations? I do not have the time for that and was wondering if you had come across any nice inexpensive one's in your travels?  I feel like I am so far behind in getting my invitations out. My fiance' and I sent out a mass email to all of our family and friends about our date. July 28th 2012!! Who are you working with Pilar? I just have had a hard time getting in touch with her sometimes. It does become frustrating. 


        KThun, if you do an outside florist is the resort going to set up the flowers? or does the florist. I know that I do not have the imagination skills to do that. :( I just do not want to pay an arm and leg for flowers if that is what the resort charges. I know that I want a lot of elegant pretty flowers too.  YOu also mentioned that the photographer did not seem that great. Have you seen samples of their photography? I would love to see samples.  How much is Del Sol or Luluna photography? Is it worth it to pay their price along with the $350 outside vendor fee? Also, you mentioned that they are replacing the DJ fee? Does that mean with the Divine package we are going to have to pay an additional fee for a DJ?


        Anymore help people can provide please do so!! I appreciate it more than you know! Heather

          oh..I just saw a thread that Dreams  does not charge for outside photographers..if they are under the same company...maybe they won't charge it either!!!..I'm keeping my fingers crossed:)

            I'm not positive but I think that you just have to pay the fee for a day resort pass for a photographer instead of the $350.  I still haven't decided on a photographer yet, but I'll let you know what I decide! Ana sent me 5 different weddings and I really wasn't impressed with the photographer.  There is one review on here and I must say that her pics are the exception.  I just really don't want to risk having pictures that I don't love.  I might even bring someone from home.  We'll see.   As for flowers, if you use an outside florist but meet them outside the resort to bring in the flowers, then you don't have to pay the fee.  The resort will put out all of the decorations that you bring in, however I'm sure there is a service fee.  The florist will put everything together for you though.  Another idea is do go to the market in Playa del Carmen and get your own but then you'd have to get a little creative with floral tape etc.  :)  I am positive that I can come up with gorgeous center pieces at a fraction of what they are charging!!  As for the Divine pkg...I almost went with that instead of the Eternity until I read the fine print.  It says that in 2012 they are replacing the DJ with a 45 minute soloist or guitar player, etc.  After seeing that, I decided that there really wasn't much of a benefit to paying $1000 more for that package.  I think we are just going to put together playlists on my ipad and then have my niece "dj".  I think you can get away with being a little more casual with things like that when it's such a small group and in Mexico!  My niece is so excited so I think everyone will have fun with it.

                  Where are you departing from and how many. the reason that it is so high right now is because the air schedules are not out yet so they are quoting you high just in case.

                  You can send me a personal e-mail and I can explain this more in length if you like.

                  I will be visiting the Jade next week so I will ask alot of the questions I see here and let you all know.
