Wow thanks everyone! So much support and guidance on this forum - love it!
The TA we spoke to specializes in DW's, she has done so many I am was just probably hard to work with since I had NO knowledge of DW's going in lol. I've done a bunch of research and am also sort of liking the Iberostar Paraiso in Riviera Maya as well (either the Lindo or Maya)... but having much more trouble finding info on that pertaining to weddings vs. the GBC.
- Does anyone have any feedback on the Iberostar, especially vs. the GBP?
We are going to see another TA tomorrow to sort of shop around and see if the quote's differ by a lot or a little and go from there.
Honestly one of the biggest stressors so far for me is knowing I will have a good photographer during my DW *WITHOUT* breaking the bank! I love some of the photographers I have seen online but at the same time am also saving up for a down payment for a house so it's hard to balance my want for an excellent photographer vs. my want to move out of an apartment with loud neighbors... lol. Especially since some resorts charge fee's to have other photographers come in.
-Does anyone have any photographers they can recommend?
Thanks again everyone!
Congratulations!!! Looking forward to hear all about it when you get back!
Welcome and congrats from another Canadian bride!
I agree that starting with a good travel agent will be so valuable. The one I used was phenomenal, if you have any troubles finding one and want her info just let me know.
I totally recommend you do a lot of your own research to ensure her suggestion for you is what you want. My travel agent recommended quite a few throughout Mexico for us and we did end up with one of hers, but we also priced a lot of our own. You also want to look into their wedding packages, etc. to ensure they are a fit for your wedding as well - it's double sided now, not only do you need a good resort but also a good wedding department & packages.
I leave in 2 sleeps for my wedding - heheh I love saying that now.
