|Yes, absolutely! The first thing you can do is get married off site instead, or choose a different resort.|
|The second thing you can do is to harness the power of the internet! Reviews and testimonials are every company’s bread and butter down here in Cancun and the Riviera Maya, and bad reviews can be your demise. If you are unhappy about a resort’s outside vendor fee policies, shout it from the rooftops to anyone who will listen! Warn future engaged couples, and cause a stir! The world wide web is a very influential place, and with it you have the ability to create change. So speak up!|
Our prices are non-negotiable. Our videographers have set prices. For that reason, it’s not possible for us to discount prices. Again, we insist you do your research and negotiate the vendor fee before signing the contract with your chosen resort.
I wish I had a straightforward answer for you on this one. My best research says that the fees go in part to the onsite vendors who’s service you have chosen not to use. It may also go straight into the pocket of the resort. With certainty I can tell you where it does not go: It does not go in any part to your chosen off site vendor, and it does not reflect in any increased value to you, the paying customer.
I’m afraid you might be out of luck on this one. 🙁 Although I am not suggesting that it isn’t worth a try to ask for a discount, I certainly would not hold my breath for your resort to be open to negotiation. We can´t insist to much in the fact that you need to do your research before you sign a contract with your resort.
The only time you will hold any negotiating power is before you sign a contract with your hotel. This is why it is SO important that you do your homework and ask important wedding planning questions when exploring the multitudes of Cancun or Riviera Maya All-inclusive options. If you do not like their vendor fee policy, work your negotiation skills to have it reduced or eliminated, or do not get married there! And please, if you do manage to work out a fair deal, then make sure to get it in writing on your contract.
|Insider Tip: One option that is worth exploring is booking a night for your wedding photographer at your resort. In some cases the vendor fee would be waived if they are a guest of the resort, and this can be end up being cheaper than the vendor fee.|
|There is no regulation or standard fee. Vendor fees are totally at the discretion of each particular resort. You might luck out and not have to pay anything, but at the very least expect that the cost of a day pass will be required.|
|If you choose to get married at an All-inclusive resort in Cancun or the Riviera Maya, and you want control over what wedding vendors you hire, be prepared to pay an additional fee. Let’s say that you are less than thrilled by the onsite wedding videographer that your resort insists you pay for, and you have found a local wedding videographer (outside vendor) who’s style you absolutely love and must have. It is common practice for All-inclusive resorts to tack on their own fee, over and above your chosen vendor’s fee, just for the privilege of having that individual on the resort’s grounds.|
