totally unfair to be charging outside vendor fee...The services aren't as good because they don't have to try and get our business...at least that's how I see it!

    Welcome to our forum community cfinkenbine, and Congrats on your Barcelo wedding in May!!! 


    Outside vendor fees are certainly a consideration for wedding couples when choosing the venue for their Big Day. Thx for sharing the charges your WC gave you. 

    We've shared our experience with some other resorts' charges on our webpage here: Resort Policies to give wedding couples that info to consider when choosing their venue. 


    Here's an interesting comparison between the results you can expect from the resort photographer, compared with what a professional can deliver.....Professional Photographer vs Resort Photographer photos ....with an example here:





    You can see that if photography is important to you at all, it's well worth the investment to have a professional capture your Wedding Day Love Story in an amazing photo record to cherish for your lifetime!!!


    Wishing you all the best with your plans - team MTM :)
