    I just looked up my contract...it says nothing about a minimum stay, only that it must be pre-approved by the hotel, and I must pay $500 per day for each day they are there.

    I'm asking my TA to get involved. Honestly, if I can't get the photographer I want, I'll have to go through Caribe, because I just can't afford flying someone in .
    Oh wow... that's exactly what I am going through. no wonder Tiffany didn't email me back with the same question. i didn't realized that we can't have photographer from Mexico. I guess all my inquires must stop That really sucks. I am sure they are not making much money by doing this. i am lost what to do...Caribe? I have to sit on it more...

      I guess I'll just have to try to get more comfortable with Caribe. At least I'll save some money...silver lining, right?

      I am flying in a friend who is professional photog and shooting for me. I am putting her up for 3 nights and do not have to pay the $500 fee. (It is almost the same because I think the 3 night room rate is like $469 or something like that.) But Tiffany is my WC and she's fine with that. Already marked it on my detail sheet and everything.

      Sometimes I wonder how much Tiffany and the other much hate this forum. I find out such useful information on it and armed with that info I often go back to her and push the issue. She's got to know I am referring to the girls on this forum when I say I "talked" to other brides and they were approved for XY and Z. Ha. Sometimes I wonder if they come on here and see what we are posting. Ha. I doubt it...too busy with all the weddings I suppose but funny to think about.Oh well.

        Seriously? Wow, I've got to take a better look at what they have to offer. The guys were going to purchase but it was about 260 before tax. (That's just the pants, jacket and vest.) Hmm...might have to reconsder renting but the problem is they have to rent for so long since many people are comeing for 4+ days. Did you have to deal with that or did they just charge you $60 flat?

          That's so sweet of you to want a good photographer so your FI will be proud of his photos.



          You will love your photos either way and they are not bad photographers...you can always have something better no matter who you get. Keep thinking of the positive that you will be saving a lot of money and you will still have beautiful photos in the end.

          You are so sweet, and very right. Here I am complaining about photographers and you had to change your entire wedding day, and go with a different photographer because of it! I need to stop being such a whiny baby and try to be positive. Thank you for the encouraging words :)

            Haha yeah...they HAVE to be irritated with this forum, but honestly I would go insane if it wasn't here! I learn so much from everyone.

            Honestly, some of the rules and stipulations they have just plain don't make sense to me. They have to be making an arm and a leg from every wedding, not to mention just the normal $ they make from people staying at the resort...they could probably book a LOT more weddings if they changed some of their rules.

              LOL amanda, Tiffany knows all about this forum and comes on it. She's told me personally hahaha.. Iv'e already got married and had her as my wc so I don't care what "i" say, some girls are just more comfortable sending private messages so there's less drama lol...

                Well, actually we had to send some of the guys tuxs back with guest that didn't stay more than 4days. And then they actually fd up the grooms package so we didn't even bother to care when we returned his tux because it was that or them refunding a sh*t load of money for our group. Long story short we got to mexico and it wasn't until a few days after when one of our groomsmen showed up with the grooms pants, WE DIDNT EVEN REALIZE HIS PANTS WEREN"T IN OUR PACKAGE. Thank god they contacted a person in our group that had not yet left for mexico to come pick up the grooms pants and bring them to us :)

                  Merideth,

                  Thank you again for booking me, I am looking forward to November!

                  I will likely be down a few days before and after if anyone else is interested during that week.
