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

    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 agree!  If it is a new policy...in now way should it apply to her.

            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.
