One thing I have learned from this site is that I am not playing any games! I feel like I have spent the last three months battling with the resort .. But here's the deal, it's my wedding and they will do what I want or I will go somewhere else! I have read so many conflicting posts about whether you can book seaside grill or not whether outside vendors are allowed or not .. Some brides are paying extra, some are booking rooms, some have purchased day passes, some have paid a 30% commission fee! I am not paying a thing. I told them what I want and who I am booking and got them to agree. Period. I will print all the emails and bring them with me and if they try and charge me a penny I will say absolutely not. Right now my latest and greatest drama is they are telling me I can not use the photo and video services included in the package for the trash the dress session. Who are they to tell me what I can have them take pictures of ?! I paid for one hour and I will not forfeit those services. I think my point is .. This is Mexico .. And I think it is important to be very direct with them and don't let them tell you what you can or can't do. It would be one thing if their policies were clearly stated and they followed them, I absolutely believe they have the right to call the shots .. But not when they are making exceptions and bending the rules left and right! It's obnoxious! And as much as I do not want to have to change resorts, we are nine months out and we will do what we have to do. My advice is to be aggressive with what you want and get the things that are important to you locked in up front. I am not taking any chances, and let me tell you it has been a battle, but so far I have gotten everything I want.
