    I just wanted to update that Karisma Hotels listened to the concerns of their brides and they did update their outside vendor policy.


    There outside vendor policy is (this is only if you do not use a vendor from their approved vendor list):


    Your vendor needs to stay at the resort as a guest for a minimum 3 nights




    Pay an $800 outside vendor fee.




    i thought this would be a good place to post warnings about resorts in Cancun and Riviera Maya.

    Right now i am not happy with El Dorado Royale Suites and the Karisma resorts and will not send any of my wedding business there until they change their vendor policies. It is a high end resort and not a cheap place to get married and they are making it nearly impossible for brides and grooms to bring in outside vendors.

    Some of the most beautiful wedding pictures i have seen taken at El Dorado were done by outside wedding photographers.

    Why would you spend tens of thousands of dollars to get married there just to have mediocre pictures?

    if you are in support of boycotting El Dorado Royale and Karisma resorts because if their outside vendor policy, post here and tell them what you think of their policy!

    Tammy thank you!!! this is great! Iberostar also has a out of this world policy fee of $1,000US per outside vendor, do you know if Brides did complain about this?

    I didnt finish reading, but can we do something similar for Palace? Their outside vendor fee is ridiculous. $800 for vendors is crazy too. Especially since their preferred vendors dont offer as much as outside vendors and the preferred vendors prices are extremely high for what they offer.

    So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.
