I don't know what you hope to get out of a BOYCOTT?
My location is beautiful, but provides a minimial level (virtually none) of communication before the wedding and charges $300 fees for EVERY outside vendor. I have to keep my fingers crossed that once I arrive things will go smoothly since I can't really talk to them beforehand AND I have to pay for my own uncle to officate my wedding, but that is the choice I made to have a lush, intimate property to myself and my guests for the weekend. I could have chosen something else but weighed my options. That is what you have to do too!
As others have mentioned, not all resorts charge for vendors. And this is not Tammy trying to boycott EDR, its a lot of brides trying to ban together to make them realize that their policies are crazy and that there are lots of other beautiful places to get married that aren't trying to extort more money from their brides.
