2012BeachBride Do you know how much it would cost for a room for 1 night for a photographer and an assistant? Thanks for the info!
Regarding a Travel Agent:
We have 16 guests plus us and I would totally recommend Nichole at
I have been reading this forum and there is just so much helpful info on here for brides to be! My FI and I are getting married November 17, 2012 at EPM and seriously you girls are my source to the most updated resort info. We have been planning the wedding since July-ish and I just want to contribute any info I have so far to you girls.
With regard to photography, we were told there is that $500 vendor fee per day that a vendor is present; however, with the exception of whether the vendor/photographer is staying at the resort. (Then it would only be what $261 for a room for one person and the photographer can eat and relax/enjoy the resort while she is not working.) We are actually going w this option to have our photographer stay at EPM for 2 nights so she can shoot most of the wedding day and our TTD shoot the morning after, before check-out. Her name is Daniela Garza and from the reviews I've heard, we are very excited to have her shoot our wedding.
As of now, we do not have a TA and I'm starting to wonder if we should. We don't plan on doing a group booking and instead are directing our guests to book themselves (to avoid us having to front all the money & risk ppl not coming etc). We are inviting 60 people & are realistically expecting around 20, and no more than 30. I feel like if the group isnt too large then there is no need for a TA. But IDK, what are some reasons that brides chose to use a TA??
