      I can't believe that! I am emailing Rebeca right now about this. I booked well over a year ago so hopefully she won't give me an issue. Good luck girls!!!!!!

        I booked last year in like March or April & was told we have the 2009 rates even though the wedding isn't until this May. A while back (maybe a month?) I emailed Rebeca about the possibility of paying for a day-pass for our photog & she said we wouldn't have to.

        Come to think of it, when I first booked they didn't even have a photographer to offer, and we booked the Ultimate package. When I asked Rebeca about photogs, said that they didn't provide that service so we could bring in someone. I even asked for recommendations but she didn't provide any. hmm.

        That sucks they've changed their policy!

          Good news ladies, I just spoke to Rebecca & since she said I booked my wedding in 2009 for May 2010, that I would not have to pay the fees. Woo hoo! I also kept my emails where I inquired about outside vendors & she never mentioned anything, so ladies keep them emails!

            Rebeca must of gotten a ton of emails- I also emailed her and I am so glad I booked early and in 2009 so the fees do not apply to me either....that made my day! What a relief!
            Now we just need to make sure to save all our emails/correspondence with Rebeca... just in case. =)

                they pulled this right after my wedding too. idk if they'll stick with it this time but there were plenty of rumors flying and lots of people threatening to cancel their weddings....hope it works out for all of you.
