I searched high and low and didn't find a thread for December 2013 brides so I thought I'd create one. This can be a great place for us to share ideas, plans, templates, stresses, etc.
I'm getting married at Marival Residences in Puerto Vallarta. Right now we have our venue booked and finally secured group pricing with our travel agent.
Today we bought some goodies to start working on our 2nd STD. Our 1st STD we sent a little less than 2 years in advance to get people to save (not sure that worked). For our 2nd STD, we are sending a DVD w/ a little video introduction from us, followed by a video of our resort (thanks youtube) and then pricing information from our travel agent.
I'm also having my dress made and think I finally came up w/ a design that I like and sent off for fabric samples today.
I'm really struggling though with photography. Dang, it's expensive!! I'm not sure if we should pay the money for a photographer in Mexico or try to negotiate w/ a local photographer for some sort of trade-off (pics for free vaca). Any suggestions?
I hope this thread helps because I've found so much useful information on this site.
