    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 ceremony 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!

          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!

            chloe55-Evonut's review was a long time ago and I am pretty sure the RIU has changed their outside vendor policy. I would check to make sure! Contact the WC at weddings02@riu.com

              I GOT MARRIED AT THE RRM IN OCTOBER 2008. YES WE WENT DURING HURRICANE SEASON AND STILL HAD A BLAST. WE HAD ABOUT 40 GUEST THAT JOINED US AND I THINK GOD EVERYDAY THAT I CHOSE THIS PLACE. I DID HAVE THOSE GUEST THAT COMPLAINED ABOUT GOING AND THE PRICE... WELL NOW THEY ALL WANT TO GO BACK. I POSTED MY PICTURES... ENJOY.

                  quick question...if someone purchased guest passes even for a photographer.. why would they not be considered a guest.. cause they do have use of the food. or facilities.. I know a lot of the bride and grooms here getting married at the riu have said it's only if they stay the night.....what photograph package is everyone getting that have used the hotel photographer??
