      I think the service charge is more like a "required tip". I know it's an all-inclusive resort, but some people choose to tip while others refuse to tip. The 15% off basically balances it out, but if the bride pays for their BMs hair to be done in the salon, the bride cannot use the 15% off. The discount is only for services performed for the bride and groom only.

        I seem to be putting a lot more stock into the music, but I dont want to make any decisions on something I find so important without him... anyone else going through this?

         


        This is my 1st post on this thread. I'm considering EDR for my wedding next year and am going on a site visit to see it next week so I'm super excited! My FH told me he did his part (buying the ring) and said that's what your mom and friends are for (planning the wedding)...I'm kind of glad I can just make decisions without having to wait to get his ok first! LOL

          I cant believe we leave in 16 days!

           

          I still dont have my dress back yet... hopefully my last fitting is this upcoming Monday. My fiance wont get his suite back until the weekend before we leave either haha.

           

          Mainly we only need to get the menus printed, welcome letters written, and finalize all of the music (which we have almost finished). I am just trying to decide what I want one of my BMs to be introduced to at the reception.

           

          My plan is to pack the weekend before we leave, so that all of the clothes that we are taking on the trip are clean and ready to go. Plus I  have hair, mani/pedi and waxing appointments during the week before we leave. Also I am sure I will think of last minute things I forgot!

            Ladies can anyone tell me what the choices are for photographers at EDR? We would rather not pay the fee if we don't have to and I'd like to look at the work for any that are already approved. Thanks!

              Well, I'm not a lady. ;)

              BUT... What has been done at other resorts (and EDR if you read way back in this thread) is add your photographer to your guest list and put them up in the hotel one night, making them your guest.

              We haven't had any problems using this method yet. :)

               

              Good luck!

                Even if your photographer is one of your guests, as ours is, there is a 3 night minimum the guest as to stay in order for the fee to be waived.

                  That was what I had heard that's why I didn't really think that was an option considering if we were going to do that, we might as well just pay the outside vendor fee.

                    My cousin got married at EDR and had Claudia Photo do her photography. She is an approved vendor so no fee and she did a great job! Claudia Photo has a lot of good reviews on this site if you wanted to take a look.

                      From what I can tell on Lomas' website (that's the company that you will be assigned to for your wedding arrangements) I see they have Caribe Photo, Magic Vision, Sarani, Mexican Wedding photography and Royale Photography. Go to weddingsbylomastravel.com and the planning and ideas sections will breakdown pricing.

                      Ladies can anyone tell me what the choices are for photographers at EDR? We would rather not pay the fee if we don't have to and I'd like to look at the work for any that are already approved. Thanks!
