We are definitely having the Mariachi band. I wish we could have them for both the ceremony and reception. But $800 seems a little steep. I'm so sad they took them out of the 2010 package for the ceremony.crybaby2.gif

I know, eh! I was upset about that too... Are you going to have them for the ceremony or at the reception??

I'm not 100% sure yet, I'm thinking maybe the reception so they can get the group excited and dancing. But I really wanted to walk in to the mariachi's playing the wedding march at the ceremony. What are you thinking of doing?

I was thinking of getting them for the reception.. but not sure at what point during the reception I would want them to come in...during dessert? earlier? later?

I had actually inquired about the fire dancers that they suggested. Victoria gave me a quote for about $1500 (I think the performance is also just around 20 minutes). There's no way I can splurge for that much. I was really sad when I found out because I've always wanted to have them at the reception. I'm still trying to look around for rates from someone outside the resort to see if they might be a little cheaper. Fingers crossed...

I was reading the Barcelo blog on the site and it said that the palace is no longer 1 a la carte per day, but pretty much fhe same number as tropical/colonial

Has any one us heard of this?

Info on this?

That was one reason we were telling people they should stay at the Palace besides the fact that it is new and awesome, but they wouldnt have to have buffet dinners every night when they arrived before the wedding events started

I've read this also.. I believe you get 4 A-la-Carte restaurant tickets for a 7 night stay.. I saw this on the Unoffical Barcelo Maya Forum/website..

that is a real bummer. The unlimited A la Carte option was one of the best features of the Palace.
