      Did you have to bring the lights around the tress for the reception? I have posted under you on this board and the UBarcelo Board. You are so beautiful. You look GREAT!!!!

        We had 34 total. Only 1 slice of cake was eaten because everyone was so full after the appetizers at our cocktail hour and a four course meal. The lights were already on the trees at Coral Beach, so no extra charge there. I love how my pics turned out! Thanks!

          sfrench0621, as I was looking for your pics I thought of a few questions. Now for some reason I can only remember one.

          Did you tip Claudia? If so, how much?

            sfrench, great review! Thanks so much! I can't wait till next week when we have a couple more girls coming back with more reviews! Glad to know you wouldn't pay for the coctail hour as Im not paying for it either. So, they were ok with non-Palace guests drinking in the Palace lobby till the wedding? I'm nervous they will be asked to leave and come back when the reception starts.

              sfrench--thanks so much for the review and photos. They are great. Did you have any problems communicating with your photographers? Were they easy to work with?

                Oh and I wanted to ask how you did your programs. Did you buy the heart paper or did you cut it all yourself and how?

                  We ended up tipping Claudia $50 and each server $20 (we tipped the one server we really like extra)... we weren't really sure what to do there.

                    The only guests we had that didn't stay at the Palace were our photographers and they were taking our photos during the cocktail hour, so I'm not really sure about that. I'd say if it was a problem you could always sit out on the terrace of the lobby bar and have someone with a Palace wristband go up and get their drinks and bring them out.

                      We didn't have any problems communicating with them. Lupe is better with English than her boyfriend. The only thing really noticeable is through email- sometimes her spelling is off- similar to what I noticed with the wedding coordinators. We had worked with them before and they were well organized, scoped out different sites for the wedding photos the day before, and were really easy to work with.
