The vendor fees at the Gran Porto are $350.00 per vendor... SO not excessively high, but a little ridiculous if you ask me... I think any outside vendor fee is crazy! It's my wedding and I may not want your resorts services!! You'd think they would be happy with all the $$ they're making on me having my wedding there!!
Ok Rant over!! LOL
Did you make a decision on the photog and video?
We ended up at Beach Palace, and we're going to get over 75 room nights so we won't have to pay extra to have the reception. But Palace has vendor fees of $800! Completely ridiculous, I agree with you! The vendor fees is one of the reasons I was seriously going off resort for a while.
We are going with Lancelotti for photography, and I'm looking between Gallardo and Indigo Weddings for cinematography. Mike Cantarall is out of our price range unfortunately. We want our vendors for 8-10 hours
For photographer and videographer, I'm going to have them come in under the same company name and see if I can just pay the vendor fee once for them. Twice is really ridiculous. All the parties have agreed to this - hopefully I can get the hotel to agree
We also are going with DJ Discomovil - even WITH the vendor fee, they are still cheaper than the resort djs and offer more with better reviews. Have you booked your DJ yet? We looked at Doremixx, Discomovil and Mannia
