Hey guys I need some advice. I booked my destination wedding threw destinationweddings.com. travel wedding planner has been great. I booked grand bahia san juan in domincan republic.
Got put in touch with wedding planner from the resort. My goodness it's been a nightmare since. Already have 25 guests booked for there so couldnt change it.
Anyways my question is if anyone has ever been made to pay a photographer fee. I ended up bringing/paying for a friend who is a photographer to come with the group. He is also bringing his wife. So they are guests of the resort for the full 7 days like all my other guests. I mentioned this to the resort because my package came with a photographer and i said i didnt need their service because i was bringing my own. Well it all went downhill from there.. they informed me that would cost me 500$ more because I'm not permitted to do that because resort gas a contract with a photographer. I informed them that he is a guest not a local and that they can still charge me for what's included in the package.. no deal still have to pay the 500$
I'm pretty much at the point with the horrible customer service because everything has been a nightmare dealing with them but I feel like I'm not going to pay it I just dont want the drama. I'm spending 2000 on the package 1500 on extras and having 23 guests staying there for 7 days and me and hubby for 10.
What's everyone's opinion on this. What would you guys do?
