    Also, she told me about the fire there that week! Someone flicked a cigarette off a public balcony onto a thatched roof and the whole thing blew up in flames!
    So about that fire...that happened the day after our wedding!! And my husband is a firefighter at home....so when we smelled smoke he ran to help. Turns out we ended up being given a voucher to come back to stay for 1 week for free since he helped put it out! Crazy! I will be posting my review soon....the wedding was FABULOUS :)

      Good deeds equal good things. That's awesome that your husband was willing to help, and I'm glad nobody was hurt!

        Hi, I am new to this site and haven't exactly figured out how it works yet! Has anyone gotten married during the 6:00 time slot? I am considering it! Is it dark at 6? I was really hoping someone could tell me how it worked out for them at the palace! Thanks!

          it's usually dark around 530-6 ish... so the ceremony/reception would be completely dark... which would be fab with lots of candles/lanterns ETC!!
          jan 11 cant come soon enough...

            Depending on when you get married, it will change. Currently in Cancun, the sun sets at 7:30 pm. By the end of August it's 7pm. So it really depends on when you get married.

                  For everyone who has hired an outside photographer, what has the resort told you their policy is to have them at the resort. I have heard many different things. I have heard they want you to pay for 1 or 2 nights stay at the resort for the photog or 300.00 to have them at the resort.

                  I am going to contact my WC but I am just curious.
