    As far as the DJ, we used them from the resort, and they were great! They kept everyone up and dancing the whole night (we had a 5 hour reception 6:30-11:30). Because we could not get in direct contact with them before we went down to Mexico (despite several attempts through the WC) we made sure to download songs onto our iphone that we needed for our special dances (first dance, father-daughter, etc) and ones our friends/we love, and he gladly played them for us. It was $580 for the first two hours and $110 each additional hour.

    For outside DJ vendors, do double check with outside prices. I have heard they need a day pass purchase and I have heard something about "electricity" prices. Not to scare you, just a heads up.

    As far as the room situation. I had sent a request for room blocks for certain groups (ie. younger friend party group, parent groups-separate areas for divorced parents, and our room-which we wanted away from others). In the end they kind of accommodated. All the rooms that needed separate beds had them, but a few "couple" rooms had two doubles instead of a king. If you feel that it is imperative that elderly guests, or special accommodation guests need the one bed or any special arrangements, my suggestion would be to detail that in their room booking notes, as well as call down to the resort and speak with the front desk/reservations manager. Of course, still send that information to the WC when they ask for it (she requested ours approximately a month before we were heading down).

    Hope that helps!

      I think there are way less King size beds than rooms with two doubles. At least on the Beach side. My parents were stuck with a room with two doubles, LOL. There was nothing the resort could do, the place was booked.
      I am sure your friends won't end up sleeping together.

              Hi Ladies, I am sooo happy i stumbled across this forum!!

              I too am getting married at the Palace, My wedding date is set for July 7/ 2010.
              As I have chosen to have a destination wedding a few of my close friends and family members are unable to attend. I am looking into a way we can have our wedding posted live on-line. Have any of you heard of this I am open to opinions and suggestions and look forward to hearing from you.

              FYI- I have hired style-ish.com from seattle to photograph my wedding, Take a look if your looking for a photographer. There prices are very very reasonable and you get two photographers as they are a married couple- not just one:)

              Happy Wedding Planning!!!

                Thanks breens for the helpful info.
                I am going to let my guests know that they may have to deal with double beds but tell them to go ahead and request what they want. We will see what happens!!!!!

                Ok... that is off my list of things to worry about.
                Thanks girls!

                  Hey ladies, just wanted to let you know I finally heard back from my WC Gabriella... I actually had my travel agent contact the resort for me, and the same day I asked for her help, I got an email from Gabriella... I should've asked for help a lot sooner!! So my day is coming up really soon but I feel a whole lot better now that I've confirmed some of the last few details.. :-)
