Also my package includes upto 35 "real" guests, not sure if I will have any guests staying at the royal/sister so if for example I had no "real" guests would I still have to pay extra for all non real guests, am I best trying to get my guests that have children/ want a cheaper alternative to the royal to stay at the sister,
Thanks ladies x
Yes kate112 you still would have to pay extra for the people not staying at the royal or any of the sister resorts. and I believe the price is double what it is for "real" guests. I asked everyone to stay at certain hotels, but I'm only having like 15-20 people at my wedding. Also, I just found out if your having a private reception you have to pay for 20 people whether you have them there or not. Just keep that in mind. I remember someone using both the royal photographer and an outside photog. It was also included in their package but they were iffy on the resort photog and had both. They said it worked out ok, they used the resort photog to take pictures of the guests after the ceremony while the bride and groom had their wedding pictures taken around the resort. Worked out good they said, but you can see the photogs in pics here and there. Another bride had just the photog from the resort and said her pictures were good. Personally we went with an outside photog, we are doing the "free"wedding package so nothing was included. Their are a lot of good photogs around the area, I'd research and contact as many as you can, review their work and base your decision on that. A lot of brides have gotten around the vendor fee by adding them to the guest list. Good Luck!
