    Well if you get the Tangerine package I was told the draping is included as well as Bar Higuey and small centerpieces

     

    I have to email Hildebranda and ask her, I was told differently... I'll let you girls know what she says.

    Yessi,

     

    The crazy draping that's everywhere was in the email for "extras"

     

    SoonMrsD,

     

    There is the basic draping that's included.  But now that I've seen what they can do, I am torn.  But $1800 is a lot.

I just want someone familiar with the resort b/c I dont want to be giving anyone a tour of great locations to take my photos.

         

        Oh that's so true that can get very annoying.

        True!  Partying is much more memorable than draping.

          Okay ladies, so this photographer thing is really driving me nuts at this point so I asked my WC, Aris, what is the policy for outside photographers and if I could bring someone from the states instead. This was her response:

           

          "El punto es que no aceptamos proveedores externos, y aunque usted lo traiga de su pa­s sigue siendo un profesional externo."

           

          ****Basic translation for my non-Spanish-speaking brides: HELL NO*****

           

           

          WTF?! It is my understanding, from this forum and other brides who HAVE brought someone from the states or anywhere else, that as long as they are included as a guest of your wedding that there are no consequences. 

           

          In my inquiry, I mentioned to HDC that I would have to speak the BBPD to verify their policy on external photographers. HDC replied back saying that BBPD does allow outside photographers but they charge a fee of $1000. This could be simply because they don't want to lose business from us, but even still, I was leaning more towards flying someone out from my local NYC area for a couple of days. 

           

          :BangHead:

          My TA confirmed I was able to bring my photographer from home with NO extra fees. He is staying as a guest.  This better not all of a sudden change.  Or they shouldn't give different information to different brides.  They should know we all talk!

            Right, this doesn't make sense to me at all. If they're part of my guest list, and I'm paying for them to stay at the resort, there should be no issues. They are technically a guest of the resort! I'm even in the process of possibly booking a photographer that a previous bride on here used without any problems back in May. I really don't understand what their problem is.

              She doesn't know what she's talking about. Your guest is YOUR GUEST. You can certainly bring someone from here. Don't even bother confirming that with her. Just do it!

                Are you using TRivera's photographer? Heather did a great job on her wedding. You should have no problem
