    I've booked Octavio Montes. @mariposa6102 helped out a lot in helping me find a photographer by making this wonderful comparison spreadsheet with different photographers and price ranges. She's probably still enjoying Cancun right now, but I think she would be willing to share this info. PM me your email and I will send it your way.

    Hello! I'm looking for a photographer as well. May I have a copy of the spreadsheet? If so, my email address is ana_steele58@yahoo.com Thanks!

      Hi, I am also in the process of looking for a photographer and videographer. Can someone please send me a copy of the spreadsheet chalonda26@yahoo.com. Also, has anyone used a cigar roller? The one offered by the resort is expensive. Thanks!!!

      So I'm getting a head start on plugging in my confirmed guest into the Rooming List spreadsheet that my WC sent me (it's due 2 months before the wedding, so for me that's in a few weeks) and I noticed that in addition to the guests names, children's ages, and hotel they're staying at, they are also asking for HOTEL CONFIRMATION NUMBERS!! WTF?! Who has time to get confirmation numbers for everyone??! Previous brides, did you absolutely have to have this for the WC to accept your Rooming List?? I find this ridiculous as they can just as easily look for this with the guest's last name.

        We had a couple confirmations numbers missing when we sent in our rooming list and they just asked us to get back to them, it didn't seem to be a big deal. Since we are having a small wedding it wasn't a huge deal for us BUT I can see with a bigger wedding this would be a real PAIN! Did you use a travel agent? They should have everyone's confirmation numbers if you did.

        They are called Floreira Riviera Maya. 

        email: info@floresrivieramaya.com

         

        I am currently in contact with Alina. Mind you, it took awhile for them to get back to me as well.

        But when they emailed me back, they just kept answering my questions.

        It feels good to get the ball rolling instead of waiting months in between emails :)

        Hope they're a good match for you too! 

        Hi! I am also in contact with Alina with Floreira Riviera Maya, just waiting on quotes. I have also been in contact with Julieta from Cherry Blossom Flowers art decor in Cancun. She has been great answering my questions and sending me quotes that are within my budget, this is their email address sales@cherryblossom.com.mx. Hope you can find this helpful =)

        Good to know--thanks! We are going to have about 60 people and some have used our travel agent, but others have not/will not.  I guess I will just give them the ones from my travel agent and then attempt to get the others little by little. Also, how strict are they about adding more guests after the rooming list in confirmed? I would think they would welcome the additional business, and that we would just pay the extra at that time, even if it's after we have paid our final invoice, but who knows.

          We asked that when we paid our final invoice and they said to just let them know. We have had a couple more people added to the group but I will let her know this week. I can let you know how that goes.....but I think it will be fine.

            Hi All, So most of you seem to be doing what we are doing and getting married before you head down. I'm Irish and we married in March and now my family is asking when are we going to get married in NY as they all want to fly over. How did you let family know that you already did the deed ans they should just enjoy the destination ceremony?? Stressed!!!
