Im so excited I found this site! You lovely ladies are so helpful with all of your reviews!!
As of right now, Im looking for an outside photographer that can do the whole day for under $3000. Is that reasonable or should I stick with the resort photographer (just worried about the less than impressive reviews)
one post down, 149 to go
We brought a photographer down with us and she charged us less than this! I don't think you should have any problem finding someone under this budget.
For those who have already had their wedding, I was just wondering what the ceremony was like. Is it in Spanish with an interpreter or did they have someone who spoke English? Also, did you get to meet the officiant before to give them details of you to make it personal? How long was the ceremony?
Also, do you choose the time of your ceremony? Mine is in April and I wasn't sure if I should do 4 or 5 pm.
Lastly, does anyone have prices for the rehearsal dinner and do you get to actually walk through the wedding with your party the night before?
So many questions!!
We did a symbolic ceremony and I was concerned about not being able to understand the officiant, so we asked one of my brothers to do it! I loved it, as it was so much more personal and we got to write the entire ceremony ourselves.
Where did you purchase your paper lanterns??
We purchased our lanterns from justartifacts as well. We also bought the LED lights for them from the same website, and in Castaways the lights made a HUGE difference.
You all have been so helpful!
Does anyone know how long the aisle is for the pergola location? I'm trying to see how many rose petals to buy.
I've posted some photos below with the dimensions. I have no idea where these originally came from though.
That is very detailed! I just got a bag of petals and let my flower girl do the rest!
Just tried to swap out photo package...I was very flexible and just wanted to trade for SOMETHING...she said absolutely nothing can be swapped...my travel agent even sent her screen shots of this site of previous brides saying she would! ...still no luck :/
We had no luck swapping things either. The only thing they did offer for us was for the private shuttle to bring us to a different resort where we went for a mini-honeymoon after, rather than back to the airport.
We didn't use the videographer at all, and since we brought down our own photographer we had the package photographer take pictures during cocktail hour, since we were off taking our own photos. After seeing the resort photographers pictures I'm happy we brought our own down with us.
