I can answer any questions you have on Beach Palace, but honestly, the wedding coordinator there Rebeca is sooo amazing. I never had contact problems like I hear from some of the Moon Palace brides, and she did everything in her power to make us happy. haha, actually, whenever she wanted to ask a question she would ALWAYS just find me, not my hubby (I think she knows who makes the REAL decisions for these weddings!).
If there are things you'd like to bring, instead of rent from the hotel, they are very accommodating. I was trying to keep my budget really low, so I brought my own chair bows, table runners, centerpieces, ring holders, cake topper, etc and Rebeca set it up all beautifully! My luggage there was quite heavy, but it was mostly the OOT bag, esp 'cause of the bulky travel mugs.
The reviews you hear on tripadvisor sound too good to be true, but they're not. All the staff is constantly checking to make sure you're happy and everything is going the way you want it.
I also got a pic of my wedding set up today for those who are curious. I did the complimentary wedding, and think it ended up looking beautiful!
I'm not sure if you are getting the $1500 Palace Dollars for your guests or not, but my guests really took advantage of the perks. Some of your vacation gets eaten up waiting at the booking tables to reserve tours and spas, but after you've swam with the dolphins, got a body wrap at the spa, or taken a complimentary limo around Cancun, you realize it's worth the wait! DH and I were too busy to use the promotions, but it was really comforting to know our guests would have lots of activities to do, at no extra cost to them.
The big thing there is, if you want something, just ask. The worst they can say is no, and usually they say yes.
"Can I get purple flowers in my complimentary bouquet?" "Sure, no problem!"
"Can I get extra appys at our dinner and a vegetarian option" "Yes, of course"
I asked for rose petals to throw on the night before our wedding, and they were able to get them last minute, and even verified the colour I wanted.
*sigh* take me back!!
Any questions though, ask away!
Thats what I figured. Hopefully it won't be too bad in June and if it is maybe we can make arrangements to have a tent to block out some of the sun.
Any otehr tips now that you've gone through the whole process?
