2013 Melia Caribe Tropical Brides

Recommended Posts

Getting married there Jan 15th 2013, Garden Gazebo, Tropical Fairy Tale package, and reception at the Tropical Convention Centre with about 50 guests.  Karem is my "romance specialist" and even though they advise 4 business days for a reply this far in advance he seems to get back to me within a business day so I am happy with him. 

 

Debating on whether or not to use the onsite wedding photographers, you don't get much for what you pay for and I am unsure about the quality.  Anyone have pics they can share or advise on this? 

 

Also wondering about the hair and make up job they do at the salon!

We are using HDC for our photgrapher.  The resort prices were too much for too little..  HDC is giving 2 extra hours to help compenstate for the $1,000 copyright fee charged by melia to use an outside photographer.  HDC is also set up with paypal so you do not have to the international wire fee $40 for the deposit. 

 

I plan on using the hair and make-up at the resort spa., I have not heard any negative,  plus their bridal salon package includes a trial run for the hair.

Hello Brides!

I've been reading about this photography charge of $1000 for outsiders! That is insane!

I have a bit different of a situation...I have a close friend who is getting into photography, and I want to ask her to shoot our wedding. Do you think the resort would care if one of our guests had a nice big professional camera and were taking pictures during our wedding? LOL

This sucks that we can't choose our own photographer without the hefty price tag!

Good luck planning!

Yes this is my understanding as well... as long as they are a guest staying for a minimum of 3 days.

 

We are bringing our photographer "family" and they will be staying for 5 days and I was told that as long as they were a guest it was ok

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
