    So I finally got billed and I see that the Catholic Wedding gets charged a separate $550.  Do you guys know if this is applicable to all packages?  I have the Strawberry package.

     

    I too was assigned to Aris!  Whoohoo with her track record on this thread, I think I'm in good hands. 

     

    Yeah the catholic wedding fee is for every package the same price,l I just find it amazing how it went up from $200 this year to such a big jump in 2014. She's my WC and she's on point, I love her, my wedding is about a year away and she's asking me questions to make sure I get all I want.

        So depending on the DJ Mannia package you choose it could be $236 or $433, just for the extra hour. I might do it since everyone keeps telling me its worth it but it's so much money lol

            $1000 for outside vendor?! That's the most expensive outside vendor fee I have heard so far...

             

            Yes, I understand by inviting the HDC photographer to be my "guest" they have to stay at the hotel, and that's what I intend to ask them to do... I am willing to pay for photographer's lodging for 2 nights, on top of the photography package. I was wondering though if BBPD would be unhappy about that and kick the photographer out claiming that he is outside vendor..

              Well with my experience at first my WC said no outside people as I wanted to use HDC then when I said I'm flying in my own photo/video which will be cheaper anyway she then claimed the fee for outside vendor is $1000. 

               

              You will not be able to have them as a guest because they will need to stay at the hotel and if they are staying elsewhere she stated they needed to know where they are staying. It seems its not as easy as it use to be but go and try!

                    On top of the DJ, you have to pay $15/pp for the extra hour. Supposedly it's to cover the cost of drinks or whatever. I'm definitely doing the extra hour as well, even though it's gonna run us about $2k just for that ONE extra hour. :o Even a reception hall in the US gives you at least 4 hours, they sure know how to get every extra penny from us destination brides! LOL
