They did not confirm yet that we are 'excluded' from that fee....

    Uh oh- what fee is this? I simply emailed Arrecife back saying i wouldnt be needing their services for the wedding day...did i miss something?

      Well it's a fee that you have to pay if your photographer is not staying at the resort ( 5 days minimum.. So I should be fine, but I still don't like to receive such an email!

      What about you, who is your photographer?

      It's a three day minimum, but yeah.  There is a fee if you bring in a local photographer

            The bar is $5 and then $3 per each additional hour.  However, the DJ is $350+ an hour.  So if you have the typical 3 hour reception, that'd be just about right.
