I will have to check out Photos in Cancun. I know Samuel Luna also splits or covers the $800 outside vendor fee (depending on the package you book with him). If you hire a videographer as well, would they charge you the $800 for that if it is a different company? You would think the resort would give us a deal considering we're bring 60-100 people to the hotel for a weekend who otherwise wouldn't be there! Never mind charge us these fees.
I'm also planning on the Blue Terrace for the reception. Do you need a to rent a dance floor in there? I hope not.
We reserved 30 rooms but my fianc© keeps inviting people so I hope we have enough rooms for everybody. We were quoted $505 per person for 3 nights (I booked in June with the 30% discount promotion).
I really want to bring down ribbon for the chairs, welcome bags, and some kind of lighting because the fees charged by Lomas to rent anything are outrageous in my opinion. Did you see the "Mexican doves" you can rent for $250 to release at the ceremony? They are PIGEONS! In case anyone missed it:
I laughed my ass off when I saw that. The one thing I do really want are the white Tiffany chairs for the ceremony and reception (if that's possible). They look beautiful in all the photos I've seen them in.
I am researching photo and video packages now and will probably go with DJ Doremixx since he's gotten amazing reviews. I was also thinking about the Mariachi Band for the cocktail hour after the ceremony... hmm so many choices!
