RMB ladies...question about vendor fee

Recommended Posts

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.....

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!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
