I think I'm going the route of "easier to ask forgiveness thatpn permission" and I'm not going to mention it and ill just "tell" my on site coordinator when I get there vs "asking" now and risking them telling me I have to pay a fee.
Since you already mentioned it to your WC I would just be firm that you refuse to basically "pay twice" since you are already paying a vendor fee.
I will probably run into a similar issue with my photographer since I'm doing my TTD pics the day after the wedding....
For all future brides I totally agree with MK0386 about this better-to-just-not-ask policy -- i really think that's where people are running into problems with not being "allowed" to have DJ doremixx -- i just didn't ask, and no one said anything to me when i told them who my dj was. definitely wish I'd gone that route when it came to asking about the day pass!
