OK, for the life of me, I cannot remember where I heard about the fee for outside photographers. It could be for another resort for all I know, I found that information very early in my planning (before we had 100% decided on a place). But, I was able to find a few sources for info about booking a room for the photographer for the night. Unfortunatly I don't have anything concrete, as they are not the greatest communicators. I got all my info from other BDW users.

 

Carrieo- I don't think it matters if the Riu sees through your plan or not. If you look at a user Evonut's review of her wedding, she says that she used Elizabeth Medina and paid for a room for 1 night for her and her assistant so they would be considered guests.

 

This thread also mentions outside photographers at the RPRM...

so does this one...

Destinationbridegina- It just depends on what the rate is for that particular day. To get a ballpark fiqure, you could just look it up on their website, but it would prob be cheaper to book their room through your TA.

 

If anyone hears anything different, please let me know. I'm bringing a photographer down from the states, and definately would not like it if they were prohibited from taking photos on my wedding day.

I think with shipping and everything I am paying around 1.50 per chair cover. Way cheaper than the $4 at the RIU....and we get to keep them for our at home reception! Does anyone know if they offer a cocktail hour after the ceremonyhuh.gif Does anyone have a price list for this? Let me know! Thanks girls!!! I have less than 6 months to go!
I'm also thinking of getting married at a RIU location. If we buy our own bows, how will it fit in the schedule to put them on? Is there time before the ceremony when the chairs are set up for us to decorate? Thanks!!

I just want to say hi to all the new RPRM Brides! wink.gif

 

Nessa-You are getting married soon! Can't wait to hear all about it.

 

Just a note-I am with Archie510-I am using the hotel's photographer. He is really good. I think that some brides had bad experiences with a previous photographer, but the current photographer seems to be doing a great job.

 

aqua32marine-I have the chair bows and I think that we just hand them to the WC and she will put them on for us when she is decorating. I don't think we have to help at all!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
