Le Blanc policy on bringing outside photographer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am planning a wedding in december at Le blanc, anyone had a wedding there?  If so, what's their policy like?  I am trying to contact the resort but takes forever to hear back from them.  Thanks a bunch!!  Also any good makeup and hair recommendation?

Well most resorts in the Riviera Maya who do have in -house photographers usually charge a basic fee for outside vendors but as I read on their website they don't permit outside vendors. you might just have to wait to contact somebody from the hotel. Good luck!

Le Blanc had no problem when we showed up for this May 2010 wedding.   http://delsolphotography.com/blog/post-736/Trish-Suhr-Dave-McCoul-Wedding-Photos-by-Sol-Tamargo-and-Vincent


This event was filmed by Style TV network and is still on TV in many countries....   I think there is an outside vendor fee, for sure likely to pay in most cases.  Palace has a big "no outside vendors" policy, however out of the dozen of personal experiences with palace resorts the client has done a few things:

 

1.  Purchase daypasses (most of the time, this works).

 

2.  Purchase rooms (several times in Moon Palace).

 

Good luck!

I am getting married at Le Blanc in May 2011.  So good to see someone else getting married there!! We are VERY few!

 

I had a hard time contacting Le Blanc when I first started planning.  After several attempts at contacting them through their website, I ended up calling them.  Turns out they never got my information from their website which is why they never contacted me.  I would call them if you don't hear back from them in a day or two.  If you end up having to call them, let them know that you attempted to contact them through their website. 

 

Good Luck and Welcome!!

Thanks Pazzesca!  I just called Le blanc after I never received any reply from them, the date I initially requested is closed now :(, now I have to rearrange everything!  Also they do not allow outside photographer, from the girl I spoke with, they just signed a contract with Kodak about two weeks ago she said.   :(

Ok, I called the resort directly and Sandra(very nice and helpful) from the wedding department said she will make an exception for me to bring outside photographer which I have to pay for day pass which is ok, but why Miami office is so strict?  I am kind of disappointed, Sandra is going to confirm back to me on details, keeping my fingers crossed....

i found that the miami office and the resort were telling me two different things as well.  i decided to just use one of the resort vendors for photography just so i wouldn't stress about whether or not they would allow it.

 

when you receive your contract make sure you really really read it.  they had the dates and years wrong on mine and i made them change teh number of guests from 25 or whatever it was to 32 which was supposed to be what it should have said since i am paying for the signature package. make sure everything you want is in your contract. 

 

good luck and let us know how everything progresses. 

 

i'm so excited to see another Le Blanc Bride!

Hey girls!!!  I got married at Le Blanc in August and had about 50 guests!  I PROMISE I will be posting a review soon...just been so busy.  If you guys will make a list of questions, I will be glad to answer them.  The resort is AMAZING and they will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to accomodate you, so don't worry if the miami office is giving you conflicting answers.  You will get an on-site wedding planning (Diana) who is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS about 2-3 months before the wedding.  You will do 99% of your planning at that time.  Let me know how I can help!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
