      Who did you guys choose for photography?  Are you going with the resort photographers?

      I have not booked my photographer yet but will most likely go with Del Sol Photography.  They did our engagement pictures in Playa Del Carmen and they were great to work with.  We will hopefully book them soon.  Photography is very important to my fiance and I so we chose to look outside the resort.  I've read mixed reviews on the resort photographers you can read them on here I believe they are called Ocean Photo Studio.  Just a tip if you go with an outside photopragher there is an outside vendor fee which is $800.00.

        I've never been to Le Blanc, so that makes me feel really great!  I'm really going off of reviews from TripAdvisor and this forum!  I just finally decided to post since I have an actual wedding date now!

         

        Did you find out anything extra from the site visit?

          I was reading reviews on Ocean Photo and was having the same problem.  Del Sol is outside of my price range.  I'm looking at Sascha Gluck now, and I really love his work, and he's more affordable for me.  I JUST emailed my wedding consultant today to ask about a charge for an outside photographer, and here you answered my question.  That $800 is steep.  Geez.....

            Oh!  I have another question.  I bought my dress, and it's ivory.  It's very, very light ivory, but it's noticeably ivory when put up against white.  Now that I'm booked at Le Blanc (where everything is WHITE), I'm second-guessing whether I should get a pure white dress instead.  What are you guys' thoughts?  Did you get a pure white dress or opt for ivory?

            Yeah the $800 outside vendor fee is kinda nuts but if you can get a good deal with Sascha Gluck then it may be worth it.  Del Sol is a big part of our budget but we just love their work and LeBlanc will only charge us the day pass fee for them instead of the $800 outside vendor fee because they have worked with LeBlanc so much in the past.  If I had to pay the fee I dont' think I could do it that would be $500 more on top of Del Sol's price.

            I've been to Le Blanc 3 times and its amazing we fell in love with it back in 2009 and knew that's where we would get married.  I have so much information and took so many pictures on our last visit i'll post them later so you can see locations and real pictures.  Who is your wedding planner and wedding coordinator?  The reivews don't lie you picked the right place.  It can be pricey but you can use your resort credits to help pay for the wedding and they have great incentives if you book a lot of people.  How many people are you expecting?

            I didn't buy my dress yet (I'm actually going to a trunk show this weekend) but I was leaning more towards a white dress.  Everything there is white, clean and modern but I thinnk Ivory will look great, if you are in love with your dress I wouldn't change it.
