That SUCKS about not getting all of your free rooms. We have a TA who has organized it all, and everyone is supposed to be paid by March 30th for our June 3rd wedding, so I think she has taken tha into account already. I know she had told me baout if people booked directly through the hotel that it would be a problem. I think we have enough for 6 free nights which is exactly what we are staying so phew! Then we are goign to Secrets Capri for a few nights after that:)
I think that's the way to do it with the photog. if you have someone you want to use. It just worked out better for me (financially and because of the ease) to use the resort photog. Anel is her name and her stuff is really great, so I feel good about it:)
Good luck with getting your free rooms, girl! FIGHT! :)

I JUST found this out and my wedding is in like 4 weeks... we JUST missed the 'deadline.' It's screwy, because as guests book on their own or thru a TA, the room isn't charged yet. For my guests who booked direct thru the hotel, only a credit card number was taken, and the room price is due upon checkin. I'm trying to throw a fit with Jorge Arelle (the groups guy) right now because their terms and conditions have TOTALLY changed and now they're saying I'd only get a max of 3 nights free anyway, even though I'm staying a week I hope they don't do this to you, or any other bride who was told they'd get their 5th room free! PS with my photog, I said "tough luck, I'm buying a day-pass for a guest who isn't staying at the resort, and if they happen to bring their own camera and take pictures, I don't see a policy against that" and they kind of dropped it, but the principle is the same, they can't really tell you that your "guests" cant take photos and they DO have day-passes 'wedding guests' who aren't at the resort can purchase! Hope that helps, I'm using the photog that comes with my package for "family photos" the week of my wedding.
