    Hey ladies!

    I am having a photographer in Jamaica come in to take pictures for our wedding instead of Michael. In september 2009 i emailed nora at the riu montego bay and asked if it was okay to do that. She said it was fine and the only fee there would be is a 100 dollar day pass. I guess Nora is no longer working there. When i spoke with sherika she said there is a 200 dollar vendor fee for the photographer. I didnt put budget for that extra 100 dollars. I went to look for the email nora sent me stating that we only had to pay for the 100 dollar day pass, but my fiance deleted it from his email account ( go figure). Just wondered if any of you other ladies ran into this 200 dollar vendor fee? I emailed Sherika and asked if she could waive the 200 dollar vendor fee since we were only told about the 100 dollar day pass as the only fee. Hopefully she waives it and we only have to pay the day pass.....

        That's great that she's going to honor the $100 day pass. An extra $100 makes a big difference when you didn't budget for it!!

          I have been reading this forum and sherika seems to be hard to get a long with she may want to look at what she say to people or they may lose weddings, I would not want to have her as my WC

            I've read a lot of things too about her, I read that Chandelyn....i think thats her name (the coordinator before) was excellent. I'm not saying the new coordinator is bad, but maybe she just needs to get situated in her position. I'm just crossing my fingers that she is nice and easy to work with. *Fingers Crossed*

                Ohhh okay! Well I've read a lot of great things about Chandlyn! Thanks for letting me know Maureen! I considered the RIU Ocho Rios, but decided on montego bay because of the short distance from the airport.

                  just an update on Sherika......so far she has been great to work with in my opinion. She responds promptly to my emails, she seems very pleasant, and also accomodating. The only thing I don't like is the new RIU vendor policy that charges $200 to use outside vendors (off the RIU's list), but that is not anything that has to do with Sherika. I'm very satisfied with Sherika's help so far!

                    I also think it's not Sherika, she always responds promptly, but the resorts policies changed. She has to work within the rules of her employer, she doesn't make up the rules. And, a lot of brides really loved their weddings that Sherika coordinated. I am really exited for mine, just a few weeks to go!
