Melissa you can definately bring in your own vendors just be aware that you will have to pay an additional $300 for any outside vendors. Ridiculous if you ask me, apparently a lot of resorts do this. They actually only use to charge the day/night pass fees but things changed for 2008. Maybe there is a way to get around this but I couldnt find one.

Anyone know any good MAriachis?
On another note - what kind of contract did you girls sign with the resort?

i would think you could find a mariachi band for $250/hour...i'll do some researching...i'm not particularly motivated at the office today anyway

I'm working out the details of my contract currently, but it's really not that overwhelming. Mostly it talks about attrition rates for the food and beverage expenses and how to make payment for the deposit. It also includes a basic outline of the event - ceremony - cocktail hour - dinner - dancing and drinking.
Frankly, it doesn't even tell me for sure what the deposit amount is.
Some of the things I want cleaned up before I sign include the impact of changes to the menu, verifying use of certain facilities, and a clause about credit or refund of prepayment in the event of a hurricane/natural disaster (wedding is in August).
Once I get it finalized, I'll post a copy.
Happily married since 2008

'"Good afternoon! You can customize the packages, but a surcharge will apply on every change or add that you do. Please let me know!
Yes you can change the appetizers or the menu, a surcharge will apply and it depends on the items you pick.
No we donâ€™t give any kind of discount on the weddings even though all of you stay at the resort or book through the hotel."
I could have sworn that Monica got a discount on the food b/c she arranged a room block with the hotel
