Would you get married at a resort that did not allow you to chose your own vendors?

Recommended Posts

I would not go to a resort that did not allow me to use my own vendors.  I am getting re-married at the Majestic Colonial and although they have fees for outside vendors, you still have the option to  use someone else.

in terms of photography- it would be a huge deal breaker for me; if i can't get their person to understand my vision/ if i didn't like his style there would be no way they could get me to use him.. these pictures are forever.

in terms of decor, it wouldn't matter to me, example: i am deathly allergic to flowers, and the resorts vendors have flowers in almost every aspect; so i opted to go for the simple options in the package, made it clear i want no flowers or decorations and I'm bringing my own with us, this way its personalized without having to have more conversations about why i dont want any flowers.

I would definitely not choose a resort that does not allow outside vendors. Although I have not decided on a resort or vendors, my vote is based on principal alone. I feel that if a couple is generating business for a resort in the form of multiple bookings for their guests, that the couple should be entitled to have their wedding day exactly as they imagined - INCLUDING vendors and extras. Not to mention, most resorts boast the ability to "help you achieve the wedding of your dreams" and to stay true to that I feel the resorts should allow the couple to remain in control of the decisions, That being said, would anyone happen to have an updated list of resorts in the Riviera Maya/Cancun area that DO allow outside vendors? Im having such a hard time comparing resorts and making a decision! Thanks girlies! Kat

When we first started planning our wedding there were some resorts we absolutely loved and would have loved to hold our wedding there, however, we decided against them because they would not allow outside vendors.

Absolutely not!  From what I've been reading, not only is the hotel markup on vendors often ludicrous, but the quality is often mediocre in comparison.  (To be fair, some brides have gotten great work from their resort vendors.)  I personally have a particular vision for my photography that a resort vendor isn't likely going to be able to carry out.  Thus, I'll be going to a venue that values my business enough to work with me on bringing in outside vendors.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
