    You can defintely bring in your own photographer. You guest need to say he is a guest of your wedding. That is waht we are doing and what other Hard Rock brides have done. I di dnot like the resorts photographer so I am 100% bringing my own. Michael Steingard. He's great!

      r n k - thanks for the info. However, I am a little bit confuse as to what you mean about being cost efficient? I only remember paying an additional of $20 if lobster was chosen.

       

      Ginamapi - thanks to your suggestion, we have decided to go with Michael Steingard as well. We are actually even able to meet him and go over the details since we're from Ontario. May I ask what package you have chosen?

          No they have not sent me any forms or anything... They are based out of Miami (the wedding planners) and I live in Orlando... Honestly I'm tempted to take a day and drive down there. For now I have emailed once again inquiring for more information.  Have any of you asked about how close your rooms are to the actual ceremony site?  What packages did you choose and what should I expect in addition to the package costs?

            See, this is the area that I am getting confused on...what are the extra costs? I cannot figure that out. How much is a private party for the reception? I may not be looking at the right things though. Who knows, I am getting frustrated. LOL. Picking the hotel is so hard, especially when you heart it set on a speicific one.

              they should send you a contract and wedding guide.

              all extra costs?

              well - if you have civil ceremony that's $500, you have cost of translating all docs into Spanish in DR embassy.

               

              - you have to pick one of the wedding collections and that's extra unless you pick the free one.

              - then depending on how many guests you have you might qualify for unlimited private functions or some (like cocktail hour only or reception only) - that's in the wedding guide. (private party - reception i believe is $50/ per person in free collection package or $300  per 8 people in other collections - that's my understanding) you need at lease 20 guests to have private reception and at lease 10 guests to have cocktail party.) the best thing would be to talk to WC and based on the number of people and all things you want (DJ etc) she can come up with the price.

              - you have to pay for photographer / video

               

              and i'm sure everytime you want to change something that is included in the collection it will be extra.

              hope this helps a little bit.

                @Ashli - don't waist you time going to Miami.

                 

                this is what i did - i called wedding department (number from their website) and i asked for specific date - she took my info and emailed me a paper (formal request for the date) i faxed it back and she sent me wedding guide and contract that had to be returned in 14 days. i faxed that back and then she emailed me that the judge was confirmed.

                since i had her number i called her few times with questions - i guess she didn't want to be bother so she scheduled conference call.

                  Perfect!  That is good advice.  I'll call during my lunch break today.  I turned in the request paper and got a confirmation number for the date I just haven't heard anything since so I was becoming a little concerned.  Also the information you gave me regarding additional costs was very helpful.  I picked the insignia package so I'll just have to see what that includes.  Which package if any did you select?

                    I picked free collection - i will have only about 4- 6 people besides myself my fiance, his son and my son. we will not have private reception - not enough people and most likely we are not having cocktail party - it will be very casual.

                      Sorry reason why I say this is I want my reception on the terrace therefore I cannot choose the plated dinner....I was under the impression it would be extra to have the plated dinner versus the buffet...
