Leah22, that's not the case at the Beach Resort. It does seem that the rules are different at every resort. At the Beach resort you pay a $100 VENDOR fee for an outside dj, photographer, band etc. PLUS you pay a pass $75 for EACH person in the group... so if I have a photographer with an assistant, its going to cost $250 to get them on site. This is in the agreement you sign:
6) VENDORS OFF PROPERTY:
If the couple desires to hire any other supplier, for a service that it is provided by the hotel,each vendor will be assess separately to verify that they comply with the hotel policies & standards. This in this case will attract an additional cost of $100usd
_ FLOWER SHOP: the hotel works with an outside flower shop called â€œTai Floraâ€.
All flowers services should be hired though this flower shop.
The hotel will not allow any other flower vendor to be used on property.
_ PHOTOGRAPHER: the hotel has an exclusivity agreement with the Photoshop on
property â€œDigipix Ltd.â€.
_ If you decide to hire an outside photographer, please note that you will have to
pay the hotel the vendorâ€™s fee of $100usd and also you will have to purchase a
day pass of $75usd per person for every photographer.
_ WEDDING PLANNERS: The hotel does not allow any outside wedding
coordinators. If the wedding couple is using the services of a local wedding planner,
she must be advised about our policies and that all wedding details will be
dealt with and confirmed directly to the wedding couple.
The outside wedding planner will be considered as another guest of the
wedding and she will not be allowed to address or give instructions to any
Iberostar staff. She must only address the hotel wedding coordinator for
suggestions, comments or corrections, which the hotel wedding coordinator
will double check with the couple.
If the wedding planner should come on property on the wedding day or any
other day during the coupleâ€™s stay, a day pass fee will apply.
If the wedding couple is using the services of an overseas wedding
planner, the hotel wedding coordinator could confirm and arrange wedding
details with her (through emails or phone calls) but all final decisions must
be confirm directly by the couple.
If this wedding planner is staying at the hotel she can be involve as a
witness in all the wedding planning but she can only address the hotel
wedding coordinator for any suggestions, comments or corrections
regarding the wedding events, which will be confirmed directly with the

Hope that clears it up for you!!!
I hope you are right about the vendor fee. It would suck to have to pay for each band member when they will only be there for 2 hours or so.
