I would think that if you have already put down a deposit, prior to January 1, 2012, that this policy would not apply to you. I am curious as to whether this $1000 is for a year as previously mentioned. This is frustrating as I booked my wedding at PPC in October and am also using HDC. I have deposits down for both. Please keep us posted on any news.

Also, I highly recommend you talk to your coordinator. They cant force you to use Arrecife because they are the preferred vendor of the resort. This is a very personal decision and an important one, your photographs are all you will have left of your wedding day and perhaps Arrecife style and photography is not to your liking and perhaps you are not satisfied with their packages. If they are going to charge $1000.00 they better be prepared to be REALLY flexible with their packages or a lot of brides will be walking away from having their weddings at PPC. And also, I dont think its up to Arrecife to dictate what the charges will be if you dont book with them. I would be livid and fighting this battle to the nines.
