Most if not all contracts have that clause written in them. Some fight to have it remove and/or reworded. The bottom line is you can use an outside vendor however; you will end up either paying a day pass $88 or a vendor fee $388 (approximate).
I don't have a complete list, however; I think ndivdul asked and I belive the coordinator forgot to attach. However; Zuniga/Deco Cancun is an approved vendor for decor (and the team that actually arranges the sapphire etc.. wedding packages). I also know that Del Sol/La Luna has a good report with them and otherwise will access a day pass versus the vendor fee.
Del Sol prices do not compare to the resorts photog nor can you even begun to compare their pictures to those offered. They are quite expensive, however; their pictures are worth every penny from what I have seen. Personally, if FI and I haven't purchased our home admist wedding planning I would have hired them. But will undoubtely plan to work with them in the not so distance future (probably for a one year boudoir shoot).
Hope this helps

Also, can anyone give me a ballpark as to how Del Sol's prices compare to the packages offered by the resort? It sounds like I'd have to book a room for them to stay so they could come on site but a lot of the reviews I read make them sound like they're worth it!
