I will be booking my wedding soon at the Couples Negril. I just found out that they have changed there policy for outside vendors. They are now charging 500 for an outside photographer!!!!! I can't afford that!!! What I am going to do. I don't want the resort photographer, not the best pictures in my opinon.

 

What can I do, any suggestions? This is making me reconsider Couples!!

WOW! That's pretty steep.

 

Were you planning to hire someone in JA or bring a photog with you.

 

I got married at CSA under the old policy, but my understand was that as long as that person was a guest of the resort for 3 days or more you wouldn't have to pay any extra.

I was going to hire a photographer in jamaica. Now I just wrote to one of them to know if maybe we could do just the TTD outside the resort.

 

Don't know what else to do

I would ask them if you still have to pay the fee if a guest of your wedding takes the photos for you. Explain it to them as a dear friend of yours is a pretty good photographer and they have graciously given their services to you as a wedding present. They will be staying at the resort and attending all wedding festivities. Do you still have to pay the fee? AKA... you fly in your new "best friend photographer" for your wedding and they take your photos.

I think those types of fees are more for if you hire a photographer from jamaica. I would double check with the resort.

It is a shame you are not gonna be on the other side of the island. I saw some AMAZING TTD pic from Dunns River falls. They were beautiful but too bad they were from after my wedding or I would have stolen the idea!

All is now well. The photographer says she is paying half of the vendor fees. So I was able to convince my hubby to be that it wasn't so bad... So everything is now booked and we are laeving in 83 days...Now gotta find a dress!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
