    I know, right?! I can't believe it. This is the problem with not having a signed contract...they can just up the prices, and even though you have entered into discussions about how the day will be...there is nothing you can do.

    I'm just really frustrated...

    It is DEFINITELY not going over well with me. Have you seen the photography the hotel guy offers? It's not the quality we here at BDW have come to expect!! AND...they charge a freakin fortune for that too...I want the professional I picked...

      You think, though, that they should honor the prices they first told you - especially if you've already booked your date.
      Let us know when you hear back from Michaela... crossing my fingers for you to hear something positive... big hug your way!

        I can't believe that! I am planning on having an associate from Del Sol Photography... and if they won't let us have outside photographers then we'll have to find a new location... that's ridiculous!

            I have just heard from Micaela. They are going to honor the package price that was posted when we booked our date. As for the photographer, so far, she apologized, but, their policies have changed, and there are no longer outside vendors allowed. She seems like such a sweet lady, so I'm hoping that she will think of something!

            I'm happy about the price...

                Hi Girls,
                Yay, I'm so happy for you that they're honoring the rate they initially had when you booked! Honestly, Zulma and Michaela are the sweetest, and I couldn't have seen them doing otherwise (unless coming from above)... Shay, hopefully Michaela will be able to do something about the outside photographer...
                Kriswim, we didn't do group rates for rooms - we made it easy for ourselves and everyone just did their own bookings (plus in Canada and Germany where our group was coming from we do package deals with air and hotel included together and not separately as in the States).

                  I emailed with the reservation people and they give discounts for groups of 10 or more. The discount was not substantial by any means; I think we got a better group discount through the travel agent. Mine was for the Gran Porto though. If you want to book through the hotel directly, just call their reservations line to find out. Or PM me if you want the email of the reservations guy that I spoke to there.

                    That really sucks about the no outside vendor rule! Is it just for photographers or ALL vendors? Do you know how the hotel photographer is? Are you able to see a portfolio or anything? I wonder if they have just one photographer or a bunch that they choose from.

                      It's very professional of them to honour the previous prices! I'm rather upset about their new outside vendor policy...for some reason the work of mos tresort photographers seems to be a bit sub-par for wedding photography!

                      I'm sure things will sort themselves out :)
