    I am not an EDR bride and do not think that this sticky is harsh......

    I can understand if the outside vendor is "the caterer" but all other vendors should be up to the bride and groom especially the photographer.......I am all for the boycott....I would never chose a venue that I was not allowed to have my own photographer or was charges a vendor fee for one.......

      Hopefully we can get the EDR to see that their policy is turning brides off, and get them to change their minds!

        I can tell you for sure that when I have been searching online or in travel mags for resorts if I see "Karisma" in the title I move on to the next resort.

          Hey everyone!!

          So I'm back :)
          I have saved the date now to April 5th, 2009. (Palm Sunday), I wonder if that will raise any eyebrows. But oh well. Anyway, I need some help, Especially from those of you who just got married or are very close to getting married at EDR. WHAT IS THEIR CURRENT PHOTOGRAPHER POLICY....now? Unfortunetly, their policy changes way to often for me to keep up . What other fees have you guys been told of, besides reserving a room for your photographer for X number of nights?? My wedding coordinator there is Valeria Martinez.

          Thanks so much

            This whole thread is in regards to EDR's policy, if you read through the posts you'll find the information regarding the fees, which I believe are $500 plus a 3 night stay.

            If you have other EDR questions they would be better posted in one of the other EDR threads, since this is just a thread regarding policies.

              Wow, that fee seems like RIDICULOUS....!!!!!
              What if I only need my photographer for one night?

                  Exactly- its ridiculous. That is the reason for the boycott. Even if you just need them one night, the 3 night stay is another way for them to charge you more money.

                  Also, just because that is the policy now, you can trust is won't change by next year. They change their policy all the time. If you are not wanting to use their photographer you might want to consider a different hotel. Girls have gotten around the policy, but it keeps getting harder to do that.
