I believe the quote you were getting was probably the day pass at $65. Outside vendor fee is $300 for each, but Anel can and did give us the flat rate $300 fee. Since I last posted she gave us the ok and was not charging us 2 day passes for our wedding planner and her assistant. I am working with Yazmin because I don't wanna stress anymore then what I am with travel agent, bookings, decor, etc. By hiring Yazmin we will have the price of our decor and extras downpacked and we're already counting roughly $100/ea (since we're not doing the ceremony seat cover set up charge cause we have different chairs we're using. We're (me and the fiance) are saving a bunch because we have about 15 rooms we put deposits on so we're definitely bringing plenty of service. Our travel agent got great rates, but also got the Now to give us complimentary rooms so our 7 night stay is paid for (hotel only!). But we have so many family going we're going to stay there the full trip and we may not have time to take a honeymoon since most guests are coming back to the state before they leave back to Europe, we're going to upgrade to the Gouverneur Suite for the price we would've paid if we were paying for our stay. Hopefully then I can give my (upgrade based on availability) to my sister (M.O.H). I sent an email last week to Anel regarding the price per person extra cause we have a handful of kids and since they get a special menu, I would like to know if they have a "special" price. Also if the florist they use have black magic roses, cause we get the bouquet, corsages, one centerpiece, and boutonniere as part of the Divine Package. ALSO found out I can request my photographer because although he isn't primarily for that resort, he is still employed with Adventure Photos so I spoke to him on facebook and he told me to email and request him and now it's confirmed! Thank goodness!! Photography is a big thing for me. Right now we're getting a lot more reservations that we expected and we expanded our guest list a tad and wow! We had a guarantee of 23 or so, now we're at a definite 40. Our budget is starting to seem low for the amount of people, but I'll try to gear away from the amount we're spending and just looking forward to everyone taking the time to be there for us on our special day!

I just haven't asked yet because people on here have consistently stated they were quoted $65 for an outside photographer. Did they 'change' their prices for 2012 (like they did for their packages) or do you think it's because of the revolving door of coordinators?
