Hey Ladies :)  I have booked the Palace for April 25th and I'm pretty excited.  Does anyone know what package you are required to purchase in order to have your reception in one of the grills though?  I really want to do the mint breeze package so that I don't get dinged $66 extra per person above the 15 included in the strawberry passion package .... but the only issue is that I don't want to use a banquet room.  Has anyone else had this kind of conversation with their WC?  Having a hard time getting responses back.  Thanks!

Hi Cheepers,

So to have your reception in on of the open air grills you can either go with the Strawberry Passion package and yes after 15 people then you pay $66 per person. Or if you are booked with Transat holidays they have a Euphoira package and you can up grade to have the open air grill for $27.50 per person. So for me we did that and that package I think includes 24 people which works better for us as we are going to have about 21 ppl. This package is $1500 and you pay your TA. Not sure where you are from USA, or Canada but check it out... they are different packages meaning you do get more with the Strawberry Passion but you can always upgrade what you want as we are doing! ;)

Hope this helps. Carla

The music is pretty good, but the club is hit or miss.  It really depends on who is staying at the resort and goes there that night.  Sometimes it's totally empty.  One night they played all Mexican music and seemed like everyone in there was Mexican, too. :)  They play requests if you want to give them.  It's the only place on the property to dance.  The only other options for drinking into the late hours would be one of the lobby bars...they are set up more like lounges...and they are air conditioned.

Is there a DJ? Or is it a live band? And by requests, I'm assuming I can ask for particular American songs?  With our package we get 50% off for the wedding party in the VIP lounge so I'm hoping it's not too expensive to take everyone. We will have about 35- 40 people, so I'd be ok with it being empty! Mor fun for us! lol

Thanks Carla...that's really good to know.  Gabriela told me that I could upgrade the mint breeze package but it's $27.50 per person, and then $24.00 for each person above 20.  I'm going to check out whether the Euphoria package is a better deal, because you get the upgraded menu and a few more amenities and whatnot :)

I'm right there with you I'm planning my wedding for April 23rd and I want the Strawberry Package.  From what I've learned from a friend who was married there she had to suck it up and pay the extra per person. :(

No they are allowed in La Luna told me it was $500 fee but it looks like it has been $300 and you need to pay ahead of the wedding or they won't let them in.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
