      I cant wait to read your review and see your pictures! Congrats!!! I am sure it will be amazing

          Ktrant, that is so exciting and hope you have a wonderful wedding! Let us know how it all goes. Also could you let us know how the $1500 vacation dollars go as well and if they give you any problems? I'm just curious when we get there they will say we dont qualify, etc...

          I've been working with Dulce and she has been pretty good but hasnt responded to my emails in the past couple of weeks.... I hope she is still around! You would think with two weeks away they would be more responsive but it's the opposite!

                I'd give you ideas but I havnt even thought about mine. As I see good ideas on this site I have been saving them in a file, but thats about it. I saw some really cute beach towls with the person's name embroidered on them...but i was thinking...If your at a resort, don't you have a beach towl? Not to mention packing 30 of them would take a lot of space.

                  Hello gals!

                  I leave for Mexico in less than two weeks! I cant wait until I'm on vacation and spending some quality time with my peps!

                  I do have to vent though... On and off through this whole process I have been told that I would get certain perks then later Palace or my TA will say something different!!! Very frustrating... urgggh!
                  Also my onsite coordinator has been good for the most part (Dulce) but lately she hasnt been responding to my emails or just certain emails. Of course she avoids the emails about the promotions!

                  I have 61 room nights and 32 people coming to our wedding but for some reason I dont feel that they are working with me on the perks! On my contract through Destination Weddings it says I qualify for the following but my TA told me we don't since one of my friends booked just two nights at the resort so they are not counting my friends room nights in the total and just saying we are at 59 room nights! Also we booked 10 nights in a concierge level room and a few couples are staying 6 or more nights!

                  The Hotel agrees to provide one complimentary private function plus 4 complimentary nights, with 20-24 rooms paid nightly for 3 nights or 60 room nights. Complimentary nights have a $10 per person per night non refundable charge for tips & gratuities applied. Should the group require additional functions there will be a surcharge of $15 per person per event. Destination Weddings, INC Exclusive Offer: $100.00 golf/spa credit for bride and groom.

                  Does anyone know if they work with you when you actually get down there?

                    I'm so jealous, I just had my wedding 2 weeks ago and I want to go back and do it allll over again. I know its stressful but everything will work out fine. You will have your meeting with Dulce when you get there and she will answer any questions you have.

                    I'm not quite sure abou the promotions. But I do know that I booked enough rooms to get the free cocktail hour (the promo posted on the palace website) but since we did not book a "group contract" they would not honor it. That was a bummer but what can you do.

                    Good choice on the concierge level, that we we stayed in and it was great. They really bent over backwards for us. I loved the extra room service menu you get with the concierge level.

                      I know there was discussion a few posts back about ASP wedding cakes. So I thought I would chime in, my cake was fantastic! Actually my guests said the wedding cake at ASP was better then my wedding cake at my at home reception.

                      We did not upgrade the cake we just pick from what ever was in the complimentary package.
                      So your choices are: Heart, Square or Round. (We chose square)
                      Vanilla, Chocolate or Strawberry (We chose Vanilla)
                      Cantilly Frosting or Fondant (We chose chantilly-it didnt melt or droop and it was yummy like a buttercream/whip cream mix)
                      And there were about 5 choices for a design we chose the ivory seashell design, looked great!

                      The vanilla cake was moist and tasted like it was almost soaked in a rum or something it was delicious.

                      I'm trying to post a picture of it, can anyone tell me how to do this?
