Are you doing a private dinner? Did you pick any colors?

As far as the photographers they had the resort fee when I had mine too. It had just started then. So my photographer took off $250 to compensate the cost. I know they have added several photographers you can choose from without paying a fee. I had Cancun Studios for 3-4 hrs which was plenty of time for $1200. They did a beautiful job and Agustyn the owner was our photographer & he is great.
We did a reception for 4 hrs and had a great time. Actually better then our at home reception. I would of been happy with just doing the one at EDR. They again did a beautiful job setting it up and the staff was entertaining and great food. It was well worth it and we only had 16 people with us. I did white sashes and scarves because my color was difficult to match. Then once I arrived at EDR they go over everything and you can make changes. They also suggested some changes to my flowers which I did and they were absolutely beautiful ...the purple iris's
Hopefully that helped you or anyone else. It helps to talk with people that have already done their wedding there.

Thanks for the input everyone. I am trying not to freak out about all the extras but our budget is ever-expanding. The photography really worries me, what if the quality of the recomended companies aren't good? I feel I would rather pay more and rest assured they will be awesome shots - the photos are all we have!

Don't go crazy with all the extras as I mentioned. They do such a great job and will help you with last minute changes if needed. I know what you mean about the photographer and not knowing the quality. They are very important to get great pictures especially being your wedding. I know there are alot of great ones there. I went by what other brides recommended on this site. I seen what their experiences were and the quality of pictures they put on along with the websites of the photographers. That too helped me decide. I went in the middle as far as cost and was very pleased with our pictures. I could try to put some of them on here tomorrow so you can see and others how they turned out. You definitely want some awesome photos. I did hear Elizabeth? is one of the best. I cant recall her name at the moment. I can check in to some of the ones that were recommended to us.
Good luck. Tracy

Elizabeth Medina Photography, Mexico Destination Wedding Photographer, Wedding Photojournalism throughout the Riviera Maya, Yucatan and Mexico
The final product is definitely important, but the experience in dealing with the photographer that you choose also matters. The chemistry with Elizabeth was fantastic. She was having fun shooting the pics, which in turn loosens everyone up and makes the pictures that much better.
She knew how to deal with the resort and the policies, so I think that you should just talk to her about that if there are still issues with that. She lives in Mexico, so that should help with some of the issues it seems.

I am so overwhelmed with the costs - I jsut paid a photographer, invitations and dress and don't have an extra $6K! HELP!
Have you talked to a travel agent to see if they can offer you a better deal?
