    Has anyone got married at the Ocean Blue and Sands resort recently?

    Yinette just emailed me back and said they no longer offer outside photographers since they now have there own.. but the prices are $$$$$. Anyone know?!

     

    Also - heads up the 2013 prices are not posted on the website and for the Sand Extravagzna package have increased.

      Outside photographers are not allowed? When I booked a few months ago for April 2013 I was told outside photographers were allowed and that they just had to pay the day pass. I already have my photographer booked (Caribbean emotions) so I would be pretty upset if they are no longer allowed!


       

      What is the new Sand Ext. Price?

        DominicanAlly - Yinette emailed me the "new" wedding package prices for 2013. All the prices went up except for the Ocean Romance and they added a ton more to the Blue Affair. The price was $2300 for the Sand Ext and is now $2530.. and the Blue affair went from $950 to $1750.00 they are no including a 2 hr cocktail reception etc.. whats your email I can send you the new packages?  They told me no outside photographers are allowed as they have there own photographers. In the meantime I was communicating with HDC Photos and Caribbean Emotions and they both told me that they recently did wedding at the ocean blue and that the Ocean blue is probably just saying they don't allow outside as they want u to use there photographers. The people they are using do really nice work but are honestly double the price then HDC. When are u getting married in April 2013? We are looking at April 13 aswell.

        I'm with Alicia--- the policy may have changed but I booked a few months ago for April 2013 and have Yinette's email that the outside photographer just needs to pay the day pass. I have HDC booked.

         

        Also, she told me that when I was booking the 2013 prices weren't out yet but they would honor the 2012 prices.

         

        It sounds like we got lucky booking early. I hope you can get them to work with you for whichever photographer you want!

          Seriously??
          I was just quoted the outside vendor fee 2 days ago, and booked Caribbean Emotions today!

          Sent an inquiry out to be on the safe side...

            Yeah I confirmed with Ada after reading this, and she repeated to me that my outside photographer (Caribbean Emotions) is ok, and it was the outside vendor fee of $70. Is that what you were told too Jade?

              I have her email quoting $50 per person for outside vendor so I'm going to try and hold her to that.

                Agreed!!  I'll pay it if I have to but I am absolutely bringing my emails quoting me $50 and also that they would honor 2012 prices. It's only fair for booking early plus I have the email backup.
