    Oxana,

     

    We didn't have any outside vendors, but I am really surprised they are charging you the outside vendor fee + more for an assistant. I'd have a hard time justifying that cost in your shoes. Let us know how it turns out!!

She said that the assistant is not a guest, and she will find out how much they will charge me for letting him in... I heard that DJ Doremixx usually comes with his assistant (MC). Did you girls pay anything in addition to outside vendor fee???

      one way around the outside vendor fee is to have them as a guest staying 3 nights as part of your party.  I'm not sure how much your rates were that you got.  But one option is to reserve a room for them instead, you might be able to save some money that way.  Also, if you have someone going solo you could put them in that room too, which wouldn't be a problem since they aren't really staying in the room with you.. and you could save the person coming solo a bit of money too.  When we were going to bring our own photographer that was how we were going to get around it.  Since it cost way less to do that then to pay the fee.

        Gail, I'm not sure what your fire place looks like layout wise.  But there might be a big difference look wise if you put a vertical hanging print there vs. a horizontal.  I'd take a piece of poster board or cardboard, cut it to the dimensions and hold it up both ways to see which will look better in the space.  You might have a real preference between the two when you do.   Here are my two favorites in each orientation.  Personally #3 is my favorite of the two.  I like things that are subtle as decoration, a reminder of what it is about without having a huge picture of my face on the wall.  I have a picture from our engagement that is really similar to this shot and it's my favorite of our engagement photos for that reason.  Either way I think all your photos are great... you might be able to crop a couple of these to fit the direction too... if say you're partial to a vertical picture but love the shot of you in #1 for instance.  Wish my pictures would come in so that I could start playing with kind of stuff.

            I did a BBQ buffet, which was set up like a buffet and it had lots of food, it was almost family style. Everyone really enjoyed it because they all went back up for second's and it was like 26 pp. We had Chicken, Shrimp,Steak, Ribs and fish. For sides we had veggies,salad, rolls, mash potato's, baked potato's and more. It also came with mini dessert table. All the meats came fresh off the grill straight from the cook himself. Everyone could go up for seconds if they wanted and alot of the guests said it was one of there favorite meals. It was really awesome.  I posted a picture below across you can see the chefs and behind us was the dessert table it was great. I recommend thisthi=.

              We did family style for our rehearsal dinner and it was my favorite meal of the entire trip! The food was all very fresh and tasty and our guests loved it! I definitely recommend it!

                We used DJ Doremixx and he brought an assistant. We only incurred the $800 outside vendor fee. I dont think EDR can charge a per person fee, as its one vendor coming in to provide service. If they do tack on extra, I would definitely fight the charge!
