    What are your plans? What is your wedding package?

    What is the extra hours for the reception? We are hoping to have a private reception and would love to book an extended time past the 10pm cutoff - Can you offer any assistance with this?

    Thank so much!!!

        Hi =)

        How were you able to reserve the Chapel Gazebo so far ahead of time?

        Are you having a Catholic Ceremony? If so they automatically reserve the Chapel Gazebo for them unless otherwise requested.

        We are hoping to have the Chapel Gazebo as well.

        Thanks

            Thanx

            Try having your TA contact the Miami office and see if they are willing to do a contract. I don't know how my TA did it, but she did. Don't tell them I told you about it though - LOL - wouldn't want my group contract to get cancelled :)!!!!

              Yudelka's email address is ykok@palaceresorts.com.

              Her email turnaround time is pretty quick - less than 24 hours typically.

                Thanks so much for posting this. I didn't realize that there was an extra charge per hour to extend the indoor reception past 10:30. Although $60 per table of 10 an hour doesn't seem like too bad a deal.

                  Hello Everyone,

                  Just a quick post to introduce myself. My name is Camie and my fiance, Pete, and I are getting married on May 2, 2009. We arrive on 04/29 and depart on 05/05.

                  I've just spent the past 5+ hours reading all 102 pages of this thread and I'm thankful for all the information provided between members, yet frustrated to find that there are some who have a wedding date following ours yet have been assigned an onsite WC. I've been asking for an onsite WC for awhile now and Yudelka (Miami) will not budge. I'm taking the advice of everyone here and am going to start sending her all my questions in bunches to annoy her and hopefully she will move me to the onsite WC.

                  Anyway, I must now carefully craft my first 'persist yet not harsh' email to Yudelka which will hopefully lead to my onsite WC.

                  Thanks to all for all the helpful information!
                  Camie

                    One last post for today...

                    A read a post somewhere during my 5+ hours of catching up regarding tipping and what the rules of engagement are. I did not see a reply to that question and I found an old article that I had bookmarked from theknot.com that may be helpful so I thought I would share. I believe its intent was for US weddings, however, it should give you a starting point of what to consider.

                      Great question! I have no idea what the protocol is. Any advice from others?
