    It helps that we're travelling during more of an "off" season. I will definitely give a review when I get back so you will know if it's worth it for the anniversary.

      We are leaving tomorrow for Now Jade.. did our legal paperwork this morning and our wedding is on Monday, April 29th! I can't believe it is finally here :) I will share my review when we return. My biggest concern is getting through the airport with my wedding dress and 6 month old son.

        I spoke with Pilar and she said she I could use the hour of photography for rehearsal dinner. If she did not provide it in writing still be willing to force your request. I had her put it in writing, but I called everyday until I spoke with her directly( 2days). She was very unresponsive via email.

Then, what pissed me off the most is that you have to pay $40 if you want them to re-use your chair sashes for the reception or you have to provide double. Super annoying. Oh, and you can't use your hour photography whenever, only for the ceremony. WTF! The rest I forget but I will post it later. 

           

          As a tip for everyone, I put numbers in front of all my questions and Pilar answered every single one of them. :)

                Just booked our honeymoon week... Secrets Maroma. We're so excited. Hopefully it's as nice as all of the reviews have said.

                So exciting! A friend of mine went in Feb and lovvvvvved it. We just booked at Paradisus La Perla :) Hi! I just booked there for our honeymoon as well! I heard it is a gorgeous resort! Congrats!

                    eeeeek we leave in 4 weeks from yesterday!!! Had a half hour call w Pilar yesterday and I'm feeling pretty good. A word of advice, her written communication is far worse than her verbal, so I highly recommend arranging a phone call with her to hash out details. She is very thorough and followed up with an email. I have found that if I have been very directive in my emails, she is very clear. One thing about the resort photog, as I have seen a few posts lately...we have hired Derek Campbell (PIC)

                      Oops clicked too early We have hired PIC for our photos so we aren't using the resort photog for the wedding. Pilar said we could use him for something else but for one hour only. So we're thinking of having him cover one hour of our dancing, or if not then she suggested a photo shoot another time, either for us or for our guests. Just something to think about, she said he has done beach "photo shoots" with guests in the past, so that's an option..
