@NJBride2014 Thank you so much for your response, yes, the rates my guest are giving me already include the airport transfers, they are actually getting the information directly from the moonpalace website, so I don't know how to encourage them to use my link, how can I to explain the difference in price, we are talking about $80 a night and most of them are looking to stay 4 to 5 nights, I went to the moon palace website and checked myself and the information they gave me was correct. I wish there was something I could do to make them lower the price, our room is already paid but at least my guest will have a better rate and will be motivated to use the link the resort gave for the so called "special group rate" I will check the photographers in the forums, hopefully I'll find one that I like.
Does the rate online include airport transfers if it doesn't it might actually come out to the same as booking through you. People forget that with the online travel websites transfers are extra and sometimes those reservations are not priority like booking directly with the resort or a TA so they have the risk of being bumped. Encourage them to book with your rate/wedding group that way you don't have to pay extra for them not being part of your wedding group. DW are definitely not less stressful unfortunately but it will all be worth it in the end.
As for a photographers there a lot of great photographers that you can find on this forum look them up in the vendor section. You will need to pay a $400 vendor fee for them though since they are outside vendor. I personally think its worth the vendor fee if you want great pics. I booked Del Sol photography for my wedding.
