    If you have a room for your photogs I would argue this. This was one of the first questions I asked. It is actually a family friend of ours who is a photog who is coming with us and attending the wedding. My WC said there was no charge for this.

      So, today I turned in my checklist, guest list, and wedding information sheet. This kind of makes things feel real, and makes me nervous, all at once. I wanted to add that today Aja has been EXTREMELY quick to get back to me. I'm talking within minutes I have a response. Hopefully, this is how things will be from here on out. I really don't have too many more questions, though, so it shouldn't be too bad. And sadly, I'm thinking I will be a Noob on this site until the day I get married. Seems like it takes forever to gain status in this place.

        Def. argue them with it. I hope they will give you a refund. I think once we pay for everything, they're not refundable.

          I'm working w/ her for my Oct. 4 2010 wedding at The Royal Cancun and she's been really responsive lately :)

          How exciting that everything is "set" for your big day now!

            That would really make me angry. If you are paying for their room they are a guest not a vendor. I would really argue that!

              Makeup artist or Hair Stylists - You don't have to tip them if they come to you. If you go to the salon, then you should tip them 15%. Why you ask, well the salon makes the money, not the individual. If you have received a good job, and you would tip normally, then go ahead.

              DJ - If your DJ owns the company then the tip is optional but if the DJ is an employee $50-100.00. If you have 2 DJs (DJ & MC), give each person $50.00 in separate envelopes. When your guests rave about your reception later, it's the DJ that had everything to do with the fun.

              Photographer and Videographer - If these vendors own the company, then the tip is optional. If they are employees $50.00 goes to the main photographer and he/she can give a split to the assistant.


              Officiant - To tip them is to trivialize their profession and extremely bad etiquette. Generally you pay your fee and that's it. If you wish to make a financial contribution to the church, you can do that separately.

              Florist - You don't need to tip the florist for making your arrangements but you can tip them an extra $5.00 per delivery location (3 locations=$15.00) or $10-20.00 per staff member in one lump sum, for set-up and delivery.

              Your Wedding Coordinator - If this vendor owns the company, then the tip is optional. If they are an employee = $50.00

              Ceremony or Reception Musicians - $5-10/hr per person, in one lump sum given to the person in charge.


              Again, I don't know that you need to tip all of these people, it is just what I saw online.

              On another note...I am having a horrible morning and need to vent. Someone used those little black box things on our ATM card and we got taken to the cleaners
              They took all of our wedding money. The bank is saying they will refund it but they need to investigate first. I told them that I leave in 12 days and they really need to get on this fast! Just what I need now, more stress. Hold onto your ATM's ladies...they are NOT SAFE!!!
              So sorry to hear that! I hope they get that sorted out for you quickly! Just follow up on the status of things closely. Good luck!

              Try not to let this dampen your excitement - few more days to go!!

                You should definately have that looked at!

                I was worried about this too, but have just received (finally) an email from my WC that if they are a staying at a Real Resort then there is no vendor fee charged.

                    So... the funniest thing happened today. Well... I guess it's a good thing that I'm one of those brides who is like "sure whatever" because otherwise it wouldn't be too funny. Anyways, My fiancee and I have a friend who is kind of like Dupree in the movie "You, Me, and Dupree". So it's an ongoing joke with our friends that they call all three of us that. Well, I ordered a personalized cake knife and server from theknot.com and they definitely got the personalization wrong. My last name is Dupre, but they definitely put Kristen and Dupree June 18, 2010. At first I was like WTF? Then, I just laughed. I thought about keeping it as a gag joke, but then realized I actually wanted a server set personalized to keep in a china cabinet. You know one day show your kids or something. I guess that's wierd, but anyways I DEFINITELY sent it back. So ladies, watch out when ordering things personalized from theknot.com
