    Wow! Some of the outside vendor fees are very hefty

    What if I have a "friend" in the Cancun area who happens to be a photographer as well?? Do I have to pay the vendor fee or outside guest fee?

    Or, what if the vendor was a paying guest (the nightly rate at the resort is half the cost of the vendor fee). Would we still have to pay the vendor fee?

    I don't mind paying for services, but I feel these vendor fees are outrageous. Why should we be stuck with a resort photographer for such an important day?!

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

      Depends on the resort. My resort also has a hefty vendor fee but since our photographer is staying at the resort there is no fee. Check with your WC and see if there is a minimum # of nights they need to stay.

      Usually you will not have to pay the fee if they are a guest at the resort (not just for the day), however there is usually a 2 or 3 night minimum stay.
