    I looked at the sample of "Mexican wedding photos" on their website, and it looks great! Check it out.

    Can someone do a thread like this for Royal Playa Del Carmen. Before they had no fees, then they became a bit stiff and made a $100 day pass for an outside vendor.

    But apparently now, no outside vendors are allowed anymore. That sucks 'cause I was thinking of getting Elizabeth Medina and bringing in a salsa band and don't want to settle with what the hotel offers.

      Hi. I asked Valeria, the wedding coordinator at EDR about recent photographer policy. I asked if
      -$500 vendor fee covers photographer's meal and drinks
      -How many nights he must stay in order to waiver the $500 fee. I think it used to be 3 nights, but apparently they now changed it to 2 nights. Here's the copy of the email:


      To sum everything up, If the photographer is staying at the hotel
      -He must stay 2 nights
      -There is no $500 vendor fee
      -There is no day pass fee
      -There is charge for his dinner at private reception
      yes for his meal (if he's having dinner with all of you) Correct, and: He needs to show the Hotel (DORADO MAROMA) his working documents, this is called “RFC”(in order to declare taxes)


      If he's not staying at the hotel
      -There is $500 vendor fee
      -There is additional $72 day pass fee for 8HR for my wedding day if he wants food besides the time of the wedding
      -There is charge for his dinner at private reception
      yes for his meal (if he's having dinner with all of you) Correct, and: He needs to show the Hotel (DORADO MAROMA) his working documents, this is called “RFC”(in order to declare taxes)
      I hope this is helpful

        Thanks for the clarification. I did not know about the day pass fee for the photographer. Is that ONLY if he/she wants to eat other than reception meal?

          Hi Rhonda. Yes, it's only if s/he needs food or drinks besides the reception meal. I wish that $500 fee would at least cover drinks since photographers will be working under the hot weather!

            Ok, thanks.
            I'm assuming they could have water at least, right?! :)

              I just noticed this thread but read through all 17 pages since I'll be doing a wedding at Azul in May. I had no idea any of this was going on but I am happy to see it changing little by little. Also, will definitely have all my paperwork ready :)

                I'm thankful for this post. I'm starting my wedding planning on my own, and it's helpful to know the facts. Now I can be more informed of my choices, and what to ask. Thank you.

                I am very glad that this sticky was posted. I think the more information the better. Hopefully they will change their ridiculous policy.

                  They have changed their policy to something more reasonable, thanks to this thread and this forum!
