We hired an outside photographer, for a few reasons... Getting great photos is really important to us, and something we are willing to spend a bit more of our budget on.
When I was reading the fine print of the wedding package, the photos included stated something like "24 photos from the ceremony" so I took this as ceremony only, and not including the getting ready, recpetion, etc. This might not be the case (I didn't check with the wedding coordinator), but I just went ahead and booked an outsider anyways...but now I am worried, because I thought the fee for getting a non-guest onto the resort for the day was $65, not $300! I better check!!
Also a question for all...any experience with ordering from Etsy? They have really awesome stuff for great prices, but I've never used them...are they reputable? Worth looking at?? Thanks!!
etsy is great!!!! What are you planning on getting from there?
You'd have to message Gonzalo about exact prices, but it's the slow season so you could probably get some kind of discount.. and if the photographer is willing to do all that you should probably just do it, lol. Our prices for the photographer was a third of that price if that helps (:
are you doing a trash the dress session also with gonzalo? Or did you just hire him for the wedding day?
Is anyone having their reception on the terrace?? I am, and it seems like nobody else is! LOL everyone seems to go with the bamboo room or castaways.. Hoping i made the right decision
Also, for brides that have done TTD, i bought a second dress that was cheap to go in the water with. It is flowy and silky which i figured would look really pretty underwater. The problem is now that im thinking of it im pretty sure its going to be see through once i get out of the water! lol Has anyone had issues with this? What are your suggestions? Also what type of shoes did you wear when you went to the cenote (if you did).
Do they have fresh flowers to wear in your hair at now jade? If so, how well do they stay in??
