I suppose what is most important now is what the resort is going to include in your package. At the very least, the price should be lower, since they seem to figure in $300 or so for the priest or preacher for an official ceremony.
Are you happy with the resort otherwise? Can you change resorts or dates? My guess is that they are not going to be as responsive to you as they will to the bride who is booking 10 - 20 rooms with her wedding party. Just simple economics.
If you are not already confirmed, there are a lot of boutique, smaller, more personal places for your ceremony like La Reve or Al Cielo.
Thanks for the compliments on our photos. We love what we do!
Best of luck. We are not on here everyday, so send us a PM if you need any further advice.
Thanks again for your response. Its not that I am getting locked into package titles, its more that I thought we were getting something, which we booked, only for the confirmation invoice to say we are getting something less. I just want our day to be special and a wedding coordinator performing the ceremony, just doesn't feel right. It feels like, as you say, we are not bringing in guests etc, and therefore are not as important. But its supposed to be the most important day in our lives!
We have already paid a deposit to the travel agent based on the 'wedding package'. Anyway, as was suggested to me, I have emailed the WC.
Take care & keep shooting
