It is definitely like pulling teeth to get answers quickly. This website helps sooo much with that! I was told we couldn't use a day pass for the photog. So, we are buying a room for him that night. I had that put into my contract too, so there are no surprises that day.

I see many questions about their fee when it comes to an outside photographer, which I am using, but have not booked a room as I am going to try to just get them in with a guest pass.
I put something along those lines on my website too! I don't think there is anything wrong with doing pay pal or having them leave something at the front desk for you in an envelope. We don't want to pay for people offsite either.....

*IMPORTANT NOTE*: If you are NOT a guest of ANY of the Palace Resorts Sites on the day of the wedding you WILL BE required to purchase a Day Pass to have access to the resort. They charge $88/per person for full access to the resort amenities from 7am-11pm (you will not be allowed back on the resort grounds for any reason after the day of the wedding).
If you plan on staying off the resort, you need to inform us ASAP because there is a limit to the amount of day passes that the hotel will give out -- anyone over that limit will not be allowed on the resort.
How would you suggest I ask the people who book offsite for their $88? We are definitely not going to pay for that. We'll know mid-December our final count for bookings. I was thinking of calling those that booked offsite and asking for them to paypal me or something? Sounds so bad though!!
Hmmm. For some reason, I have $250 marked down in my budget for iPod set-up. I think I saw somewhere on here that that's how much it costs to have the minimal iPod set-up with speakers. Does anyone else have this info? I was wanting to do the iPod set-up for ceremony and cocktail hour as well. I'm not sure if I'd want a technician or if I'll just have someone from our wedding party press play, etc.
I was also considering an extended cocktail hour as well if we have the dinner instead of a reception.
