hi Feath07,

I was told by the photographer that if I book him for a minimum three night stay then I would just have to pay for that because they would then be my guest. I am pretty sure if your guests are staying there and taking your pictures and staying there longer than three nights then they don't have to pay that fee. Check into it anyway because I am not 100% sure.

 

I was considering quite a few resorts actually and not only in Punta Cana. I was originally planning on getting married in Mexico but when I was getting pricing back it just seemed too high. So then I started looking in Dominican just to have more options and this resort happened to pop up in my searches and I am glad it did. I am glad and very happy with my selection and am hoping all of my guests will be too.

That's so exciting. I have never noticed anyone getting married the same date either, until now. What resort are you getting married on?

I have my invites in for printing. someone else is doing them for me. The lady doing my invites brought them to the printers on Monday and she said they usually take 7-10 days. I will have my invites out in May to everyone, which still gives people plenty of time. I didn't do STD's just the invites. I figure if I sent them out early enough then that would be fine.

Gotcha. I'm going to design save the dates online and email them, and send formal invites by August.

That's a good idea too at least people will know they are invited and can start saving if they need to.

Wow! $1000 is high. Grand Palladium charges $500 for outside photographer. Luckily 3 photographers are family members with my group.

LOL...that makes 3 of us! April 17, 2015!!! So excited! Congrats everyone! My fiance and I chose Paradisus Palma Real in DR....I fell in love with it! they too have a $1000 fee for outside vendors. But you also have the option to pay for a three night stay. However, I was looking at their home photographer and their work looks great.
