    I'm using cinematic riviera maya for video! Not much more than the resort video and I'm sure way better.

    Send me your email and I can send the info for Zuniga!

    Less than 2 weeks to go, can't believe the wedding is so soon!

    I sent you a PM.....OMG 2 weeks, so exciting!!!!!

      AmandaPierson! Omg, your wedding is this weekend! So exciting! Cant wait to hear all about it and see pictures! =)

       

      Lynz797, your wedding is the Monday right before mine! :) We are getting married on the 25th.

      For make-up i have decided on Styling Trio! I really loved his work and really wanted the airbrusing done. I still don't know what i am going to do about flowers and deocrations. I contacted some florists outside of the resort, but they all seemed comparable to to resort florists. To make my life easier, i might go with the flowers the resort is quoting me. Unless anyone recommends a diferent option?

      For photography, i decided on Sascha Gluck. I really liked his pictures best.

      For videography, i still have no idea. We are on a tight budget, so i am still looking for someone i love, but that can work with our budget. Do you have a videogrpaher yet?

      Hey Fareda! If you would like I could send you a list of some of the decorations that I'm renting out now that my wedding is done. I live down here in Playa Del Carmen, so I bought a lot of the decor rather than renting. I have lanterns, tables runners, vases, etc. Send me a PM if you'd like to see some photos and pricing. Congrats on your wedding a happy planning!


      Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.

      Have any of the other brides used Ocean Photo Studio? I was comparing all the prices and they seem to be the most reasobly priced. Has anyone used them and loved their work? Are they easy to work with? Obviously, pictures are so important and i want them to be stunning, but we are also on a budget =/

       

      Any help or advice would be much appreciated! :)

      I'm not sure about Ocean Photo Studio, but the photographer, Susana, that I posted a couple of pages back from My Adorable Bridal is around $1500 USD. :) www.myadorablebridal.com

       

      Sorry I can't be of more help!

            The following message I posted to my June Playacar Palace Brides thread.

             

            I used Photos In Cancun and to make a long story short I actually booked them the DAY OF o_0 . Thankfully they sent a a wonderful photographer and his assistant and they worked out something that fit our budget... The non-wedding pics are not their work, but they took all of the pics shown for the wedding and reception. Stuart was who they sent to do the work, but I worked everything out with Derek and he's AWESOME.


            Hey guys haven't sent the photographer the edits I want to have done yet but I'm going to post a few pics of the wedding. It was awesome! :-) The following pics are of the resort (Playacar Palace), cocktail hour and rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, reception and the photo shoot we did with our resort credits before we went to Secrets Silversands for our honeymoon. Epic wedding and honeymoon!! woot.gif

                Did any brides use your resort credits for spa services or golf? was there any issues?

                  Hi,

                   

                  I used resort credits for the spa - we got a couples massage for $28 total! You can only use up to a maximum amount at the spa - we had $1500 credits per couple, and you could use up to $300 at the spa. You pay tax in cash on any credits you use (and tip if you want) and thats it. 

                  You cannot use credits to golf at the course next door - you can only use the credits at Moon Palace to golf. You can take transportation there, it is about 50 mins away, a few of our guests did that.

                  We also used credits on a trip to tulum and to upgrade wine at dinner.
