I truly do not understand the outside vendor fee. It's just extra money in the Royal's pocket for no reason. Like you said we and our guests are giving the hotel thousands of dollars. I'm doing my best to get around this and have not mentioned the names of my vendors to WC. It seems the onsite coordinators are more lenient with the rules and fees so I'm hoping once I get down there I won't be charged.
Another idea I had was just buying them day passes, it may work out cheaper. Did any past brides get away with this?
ChicagoBride - That is a great idea! Anyone - definitely let us know if that works. That is so weird about the vendor/photography issue. I told my WC about mine a long time ago and she was fine with it. So strange that they are changing everything.
You ladies have empowered me to ask for the tres leches wedding cake! Our reception is inside so hopefully we can get it!
