    I am so excited!! I just booked my photographer for my 5-12-12 wedding @ the Riu Palace!  I seriously must have looked at 25 photographers, and it feels good to have made a decision.   I understand that he is not really listed very much on this blog, but he was very responsive, and very reasonable in price so I have a good feeling about him.  I did see he was a photographer several times at the Dreams Resort, so if you have a review of him, I would really appreciate any feedback. 

     

    Happy Planning!

        Hi Leahnv!

         

        Congrats on your engagement!

        I am going with the Royal Package. Our wedding is @ 4:00...Yes I am getting really excited!  So far we have booked:

         

        -The hotel

        -Hair and Make up with Suzanne Morel

        -Photo with Glez Photography

         

        The only problem with the RIU is that they don't contact you until 2 months before to see where/what time you want your reception.  We will probably end up going with a private event at one of the resturants. 

         

        If you want info, the wedding coordinators have been great so far.  I can also try to answer questions you may have since I have been planning for awhile.

          Congrats! Not sure if you've already made a deposit for this or not, but I would seriously suggest booking hair/makeup with Neysa Berman. From the reviews I've read and pictures I've seen of Suzanne Morel, her style is a bit dated, and many have had communication issues with her and her staff. You can take a look here for photos of what Neysa has done (my photos are on the last page!).

                Hey Kari,

                 

                I too, am still trying to figure out a photographer, I think I may look into Glez as well. I like his style. I really really really want Cinematic touch to do our wedding videography but am having a very hard time convincing fiance ( extremely $$$$ ) but  I keep telling him its the one thing that matters the most to me because some of our close fam and friends will not be able to make it and  I  would love to have a keepsake from our day - especially because so many brides say that your day flies by and you miss and forget some of things that happen.

                I will still try to convince him. If anyone has any advice on what to say to him, please help!!! :)

                 

                Leahnv, I have looked into the Monalisa as well when I first got engaged and it was WAY out of our price range, its a beautiful spot though if you decide to go with it.

                 

                Kari, I also booked Suzanne Morel, I don't think you have anything to worry about , I have seen many previous brides pictures and they always look fab!  Everyone is entitled to their tastes !    Keep in touch!! Have you decided what you are doing for centrepieces or are you purchasing the flowers from the RIu once you get there?

                  Hello mishele81 I strongly advice you to get a good photographer and videographer. It's a moment we all want to have as a memory and share it with our loved ones and next generation ..kids ect hehe. So many friends and family I've talked to regret not having put morr money towards it since some don't have that good photos or videos tpo go back to. Tell him how much it means to you to have a good video to look back to and if its way outta ur budget maybe you can cut off o± something else. Good luck best wishes ...I hope you convince him

Did you decide on the Sunset Mona Lisa? if so how is the planning going? how many bridesmaids are you having? What are your colors?

                      Hi mishele81, That's great!! I saw there work online and there great. Your wedding video and everything else is gonna be beautiful!. We've set on SDML yay! I will have 7 bridesmaid and colors I'm not entirely convinced I'm in between a white wedding or a soft pink peach and gold. What about you ? Also what's the pricing on cinematic touch? I think I might want them too haha
