    That just proves it is not a "Vendor" issue or something to do with paying the proper taxes. They just know where they can hit brides for extra money and they can't do much about it.

My TA also got the owner involved and is suppose to talk with the owner of Karisma resorts and the EDR about these ridiculous fees to bring in an outside photographer. What is boils down to is they want us to use their photographer that isn't very good. The owner of TA is well known to the resort and they sent over 1 million dollars in business there. They were also named one of the top TA with Karisma resorts. So hopefully we should get somewhere with this. The owner of Berman travel does not agree with this & says they need to know this when booking other brides wedding destinations there. It is a big factor when planning and expense.

      I also received email from Cancun Studios who is doing my phots and told me we can report this to Mexican govt. kinda like our BBB that they are doing unfair charges which limits outside vendors. Anyone interested in the info let me know and I can forward you the email. It may help with some of you that are paying more than the $500 also future brides we can help out.
      So you just received an email that said 2 nights plus $500?? Why the change in number of nights required all of a sudden? Did you receive it from Valeria or Monica, and can you please post it?

        On a total side note, I got these floating candles for our reception at Tucanes:

          as I understand it the taxes issue and the $500 fee are 2 separate issues.
          The taxes issue relates to making sure the outside vendors have appropriate approval to be doing work in Mexico. I was told I had to provide this documentation, regardless of the fact that I didn't have to pay the $500 (based on an earlier agmt I had with the resort). What the resort has been doing however is melding these 2 issues together when they bring it to the attn of the brides - not cool!

              Are those candles from EDR or are you bringing them?

                  How is everyone transporting their wedding favors, OOT bags, and other decorations you are bringing from home. I'm hoping to have an empty suitcase to fill up and then cushion really well so that hopefully nothing breaks. Also, do most airlines let you bring your wedding dress on the plane with you?

                    I am bringing those candles. They have floating candle boat type things that you can pay for and put votives on them.

                    I am bringing my centerpieces and packing them in a suitcase. I will have a wedding suitcase filled with all the OOT and favors and stuff.

                    I think you can bring your wedding dress on the plane but you probably have to lay it across some suitcases in the top compartment.
