Warning ROR!

Recommended Posts

Yes you will definitely have to buy him a day pass. From all of the posts on here, you might also get suckered into paying the $200 "loss of sales" fee since the hotel isn't making any money from your photographer staying there. I'm not sure whether that makes you more of a target, but it's something to keep in mind!

Is that really legal for the resort to make you pay a fee for a service w/ the photoshop that I don't have a contract with? It just seems very idiotic to me to simply give away 200 bucks b/c the photographers there are not cooperating based on logic... [sorry just real pissed that this may be an issue]

Has this happened to other photographers?


Seeing as how the bride who hired Robin had full clearance ahead of time to bring an outside photographer and things still went crazy, I would think it would be a good idea to bring the incident to the wedding planners attention. Letting them know that you know of incidents like that carry a lot more weight than just asking the basic question. Know what I mean?

Very helpful post ladies. I friend of mine wanted to get married there and was going to do a site visit while in JA for my wedding. I think she has now changed her mind reading this plus having 80% of the wedding party staying at the hotel. Too many policies! With Iberostar Rose Hall Suites you just have to get a usual Day pass or wedding pass for photog or extra guest

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
