    I think we will probably end up getting the raffia fans in turquoise and printing programs to attach to them on a metallic orange paper. Link for the fans is attached.

    Colored Medium Palm-leaf Hand Fans / Pack of 10 : Unique Wedding Favors - Wedding Reception Favors - Bridal Shower Favors


    So~ An update for everyone- maybe a slight kink in the Beach Palace plans! We are struggling with the guest list and may end up changing resorts based on the price. When we booked the group contract, they assured us that we got the cheapest rates that we would be able to find. Unfortunately, this is very far from the truth since we are not able to package the air for our guests. We are finding much cheaper rates through normal travel sites and are in negotiation to cancel our contract and move to a different resort.

    I am slightly panicked, just because we are in limbo and will not know anything until Monday. If we move, I think it will be to Dreams Cancun, which I am kind of sad about, but it will be close to $1000 cheaper per couple to stay at Dreams!!! I am positive it will work out, but it is just a bit nerve-racking to not know with the wedding being 5 months away!!!

    I will let everyone know what happens!!!!!

      Lindsey-
      Have you or your guests checked out buying your vacation from a palace member? We are staying at Cancun Palace and paid $2084 for the week. That also includes a bunch of free stuff. I know that it's the same price at Beach Palace. Those members can also sell nights at Beach Palace for $340 a night with a three night minimum stay. If you want me to forward you the website from the member that we bought from, please let me know. If you have to switch resorts, it will all work out! Your wedding day will be perfect. Regardless of the resort you will be with your husband, family and friends. I like the idea of the fan too.

        Laura,
        Thanks for the info! If you could send me the website, I would really appreciate it!

        Thanks for the encouragement, too!!! Still haven't heard back from Beach Palace. They seem to be avoiding my travel agency...hmmm.

              Did you try calling them direct in FL?? I don't know but it is worth a try.

                    What is the name of your onsite wedding cord? Since I have not heard from mine, I think that I am going to call the FL office and see if I can find out who it is. I am just under three months away!

                      Laura-

                      Sorry! I have been a little MIA as well- dealing with all of the drama. The onsite coordinator is Valeria and she is an angel! I would email her directly. So- I got news today that we are moving the wedding to Dreams. We are still staying 7 nights at the Beach Palace, which I am pumped about, but will actually be having the wedding at Dreams. Guess I will go check out the Dreams forum! Thank you guys for your help!!!
