If you have an outside photog they will charge you $200 for the day pass and you can't allow them in your room. My daughter is working on the review as I feel it would be fair for her to give her review as the bride rather than me being the mothe of the bride. The wedding was beautiful and she had a good weather. I loved Negril and can't wait to go back!
**Calling all Riu Negril brides**

I'll definitely have to look in to the free wedding package. The WC at the head office told me I could so I will clarify that with Dionne at the Riu Negril.
Thanks for the info ladies...definitely good to be prepared!

As far as the photographer not being allowed in the rooms, you might want to clarify that with Dionne, cause I just got the email this week stating no outsider vendors are allowed in the rooms, this is hotel policy.

Here is the deal if you have someone as a guest staying at the resort this person is a family friend taking pictures and not an outside vendor so you should be able to take those key pictures. I would just recommend having them leave before Dion gets to the room because she really prompt when she comes to get you. Also, if you are getting married outside I would recommend building three as it is right where they have the ceromony. Now if you have an outside photog and you tell Dionne she will want his/her name and will charge $200 vendor day pass fee vs. if you have a friend wink wink that is coming to the vendor and happens to bring their camera as a good friend would do this fee is less I think it is $90 again have them get out of the way before Dionne comes to pick you up if she ask it is just a family friend. We had to pay $200 vendor day pass fee which was not cool and I think very expensive but at least they still let outside photogs come to resort were some resorts will not allow an outside photog. We just took our own pictures of my daughter getting married we were bummed by this but they day did turn out to be beautiful so my daughter did not get hung up on that. Also, the photog did not want to break any rules so he did not come to the room. She hired G.B. from SunGold and he was so nice she said she loved him. When she writes her review I will post our personal pictures and then will post the professional pictures. Also, we had a friend video tape the ceromony and she was so happy she did as she looked at at least 30 times lol. I highly recommend that you have a family friend video tape the ceromony you wont regret it. Just make sure they are good at this. She used the flip camera and our friend was out of the way. More to come from my daughter's review. We believe in paying it forward as this site was so helpful in our planning.
