    To ease the mind of your FMIL, it may take some research on your end to enlighten her.  

    I completely agree! I had so many people say negative comments to me and it is all just because they were uneducated to the area. There are safety risks no matter where you go, and you should always use common sense, but for the most part Cancun and Riviera Maya are safe. The resorts are their money makers down there and so they keep those areas pretty safe. 

     

    You should have no issues switching resorts...I know several people that have done this with no issues.

        Great article to read and share on Mexico travel safety.

        Is anyone else using an outside photographer?

         

        Included in the Devine package is an hour of service and 24 prints plus a photo book.  I have been talking directly to the resort photographer trying to get him to swap the hour for a photobooth or off site shoot later in the week but I am not having much luck.

            I decided not to use the resort photographer and booked Sascha Gluck. His work is awesome!

              @khunt- I think the girl who is selling it had it cleaned and those stains remained. I will keep searching. My wedding isn't until October so hopefully I find it or something similar!

                  I'm excited to see how the photos turn put. Etiquette question- we should include him in our number for dinner correct? We booked him for 6 hours so he has to eat!

                    We are including our photographer for dinner.  You don't have to, but it's very thoughtful and they will appreciate it.

                      i was just looking on trip advisor at Now Jade (now that my date has been confirmed for 19/02/2014 im getting a little obsessed with it all).... anyway, in the forum a few people are saying that there is major building work going on next door.... a new hotel I guess... does anyone know when the work is to be completed.... I cant think of nothing worse than being on a relaxing holiday... and not to mention wedding... with loads of banging going on in the background...

                      any info would be great!!!
