      The fee for the justice of the peace must be in cash, everything else can be paid by credit card. We paid with our Canadian visa with no issue, the exchange rate we got was fantastic too. There was confusion when they kept hitting ok and handing me the machine and I could read it so I would hit ok then it would say declined. The girl didn't speak much English so she just said 'declined, new card' and so after the wedding coordinator got involved I realized when they handed it to me I was to just put in my pin and then hit ok! All was good after that! Another thing we did in cash was we tipped the coordinator and staff who served us with cash. Cheers!

        I can't say that I know the name of it but I do know its not Coral beach (its down in front of the restaurants at the Palace) or Coco Beach (its in front of the pool area and two buildings of the Palace) or Playa Azul (it's the complete opposite of Coral and is located way down by the Beach/Caribe)...if you have a list of beaches you may be able to knock 3 off and figure it out by process of elimination.

            Hello ladies, I wanted to throw an idea out there and if anyone is interested let me know! I originally had my wedding booked for Punta Cana but due to soo many people becoming sick (violently ill) I changed my destination to Mexico. I fell in love with a photographers work from there and was pretty disappointed that I would have to find someone else, especially realizing how much more photographers costs in Mexico. Anyway, rather than rambling on, I'll get to my point......I contacted the photographer from the DR and I am going to fly him in and have him stay as a guest. Amazing is an understatement for his work and his prices are very reasonable ($2,100 for 12 hours over 700 pics, $2,600 including TTD). I found these prices to be great especially for his work! My thought was if anyone had a wedding the same week as mine (May 5th) they could book him as well and we could even split the cost of having him come to Mexico, it would probably end up costing less than the $500 vendor fee! Pm me if your interested and I'll give his info/ page to check out his work.

              Hello fellow brides!! 

               

              I am getting married in July 2014 at the Palace and I am very excited since I have been to this resort before and LOVED it. I have a question regarding a cocktail hour. Our package (strawberry passion) seems to be getting pretty expensive with all of the 'extra' costs and having lots of food before our reception dinner is something that I am not sure about. Any suggestions or ideas from past brides about having a cocktail hour? If you had one, was it worth it? And if you didn't, perhaps you could let me know what you did so that I can plan something similar. 

               

              Thanks so much! :)

                Hello, 

                Does anyone have pictures of the hurricane vases you can rent? Just trying to plan out our centrepieces. Thanks!

                  Hello Ladies,

                   

                  Can someone tell me if there is a place in or close by the Palace Resort to buy sparklers, maracas, mini tequila bottles and a pinata? 

                   

                  Thanks!

                  Lauren

                    I'm not sure how far cancun or any of the down town shops are but I plan on going a few days early and hitting up the shops for the same studd. If there isn't something in the Barcelo you can jump on a shuttle for pretty cheap.
