Resorts That Don't Charge Outside Vendor Fees?

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies!

 

Does anyone know of any resorts that won't charge outside vendor fees or tends to be lenient on the charge? I'm trying to factor in all of my costs when making a decision and ultimately things such as photography, hair/makeup are extremely important so it HAS to be done right. From the reviews it looks as if a lot of ppl use outside vendors.

Unfortunately most resorts do charge vendor fees!  It's a way to price gouge us brides.  I know some brides have gone off resort successfully - I do sometimes wish I had explored that option more, but I was in a time crunch

We've made a list of our wedding couples' experiences with resort charges for outside vendor fees here: Resort Policies

 

We've also recently revised our price packages to give wedding couples a break to assist them in dealing with those outside vendor fees :) 

Wishing everyone happy research, and all the best with their plans - cheers! team MTM :)

 

...and some photos of magical wedding "moments that matter" for added inspiration...with more at the album link here: Barcelo Maya Colonial Wedding Album....enjoy!!!

@@Moments That Matter

Thanks for sharing I knew that I had seen a list out there, perhaps one from yourself. It was very helpful to me when I was in the early stages of planning!!

 

Ultimately, we decided off resort and couldn't be happier!

Surprisingly it has been mostly easy planning and allows for me to have a wedding I truly envisioned at a price point we can afford!

One way I got out of the vendor fee at my resort was booking my vendors a one night stay. It cost me $400 for my photographer and his assistant to stay at the resort for the night, as opposed to the $800 vendor fee + $100 each day pass ($1000)

I'm getting married at Palace also (Moon, not Beach). How did this work since theyre telling me anyone that is part of the wedding has to stay a 3-night min? 

thanks

yeah, I don't know if I've ever seen a resort that didn't charge for an outside vendor. depending on how good your room rates are, though, usually if they stay 3 nights, they waive the fee. for my wedding, the 3 night price is $250 less than the vendor fee so it works out well!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
