    They are definitely one of my top contenders!  We will see who is available and who I can afford after we secure a venue!

          When I was talking to wedding planners here in the U.S., they really emphasized the importance of bringing in an outside photographer. I'm not sure if you're going with a resort or not, but they said that every bride that used a resort photographer tends to be really disappointed.  Each planner suggested flying in your own photographer that you feel comfortable with.  I get the sense that there are proportionately more good wedding photographers in Mexico compared to some of the Caribbean islands, but I'm sure you can find someone down there that is great if you do your research.  Who are you thinking about using?

            Your right because my resort photographers have the worst review and are pricey too on top of that. I was looking into tropical imaging aka brilliant. They have great reviews. However my resort also does not allow outside vendors which sucks. But I saw on the boards that there were a couple of brides who were able to use them by paying for them as guest. Illena went solo from them i contacted her for a quote Just yesterday however I saw on the board that the resort has now contracted her .BUT they charge way more than she did on her own..

                  I got my dress Sunday, I can't wait to wear it!!! When I ordered it they told me it could take up to 6 months to ship and they like 4 months for alterations but if they only had 2 for mine it'd be okay. They called me yesterday though and luckily my dress is shipping from the designer Sept 30 so I'll have about 4 months for my alterations!
