I believe the $1500 promotion ends in less than a month.  From what I've been told you need to have your contract worked out and signed before it ends to get those perks.  I believe you can put it towards the wedding, but I'm not sure about the photography specifically.  I did a site visit down there and met with the wedding planner 2 months ago and from what he told me it has to be put towards a wedding collection.  (Diamond, Emerald, Saphhire, Ruby, Amber, etc)

I am getting married at Cancun Palace (switched from Beach Palace) on May 21 - I'm putting my dollars towards the spa and excursions.

Hi ladies,

 

Good news, the promotion has been extended! There has been one change though.

The change is to the 3 night credit amount:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new promotion dates are:

 

Booking window: from december 1, 2010 through may 31, 2011

travel: december 1, 2010 through December 23, 2011

 

Also, while on our site visit a couple weeks ago we learned that if you make ANY changes to a wedding collection, it is no longer considered a collection and the $1500 credit cannot be applied to it. We witnessed a couple go through this as they were checking out the day after their wedding and spoke with them about it. They did not know this before hand. If you upgrade anything in the collection or use another vendor for a service, etc. it is no longer valid to apply the credit.

 

Soo, as we aremaking some changes to our collection (we're upgrading the hoopa fabric) we will probably use our credit toward a night out with a limo, the spa and maybe excursions!

Ladies, thanks for sharing all of that information. I am sure a bride and groom would be quite upset to receive a 1,500 bill at the end of thier stay due to making changes to the wedding collection!  Very helpful info. 

 

I anyone is planning on booking a wedding with the palace resorts in the future please email me, I am a member and happy to share my benefits(20% off spa treatments, 1 mani, 1 pedi, 1 back massage included per person per room, and lower rates.  I know each little bit helps. 

 

Have a great day.

 

Please send me a private message!

 

Good luck ladies.

Hi AshleyNicole

 

I was just wondering what it was about the Beach Palace that you liked more than the Cancun Palace, was it just the sky terrace that swayed you?

I highly recommend a site visit to any bride that wants to get married at any destination location. It's a priceless experience to see it first hand and meet some kep people that you will be working with for several months.

 

We also were able to see two wedding set ups over the weekend which gave us great ideas and we got some invaluable infomation from the couples getting married. We also saw what took place if it began to rain on a outdoor reception. :(

 

One of the most important things that the couples reiterated was to GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING. You cannot hold anyone accountable for anything that was verbal or not specifically written.

 

As for the hotel, it's beautiful, clean, and the staff is extremely courteous. The beach is out of this world!! Wow. I love it. I'm actually tempted to have my ceremony on the beach but the Sky Terrace is breathtaking! I can't say enough great things about this place.

Hi ladies!

 

I can see that nobody has been on this thread for a while, but I just had to say hello and how happy I was to find it!  We are getting married at the Beach Palace on June 18th (see you there, ThisIsIt!!).  I'm a major list-maker/planner, and I have been dying for more information than we've been provided so far.  This forum has been a godsend!  The pictures that some of you have posted have seriously almost brought me tears of joy!  I finally feel calm and even more excited than I already was to get married...it's wonderful hearing so many glowing reviews.  Thanks a million for all of the info!

 

The one question I do still have, if any of you who are already married are still reading this board, by chance...if you chose the complimentary package and then purchased add ons and/or brought some of your own decorations, did you ever feel like you were low on the priority list because you were spending less than other brides?  That's really the only worry I have at this point, but I'm guessing from what some of you have already said that it won't be a problem.

 

Hope everyone's doing well, and seriously thanks SO much for all of the pictures and info that have been shared already!!

By now I am sure you are married so Congrats! I noticed you got married in July and I am getting married at the very end of June so I thought you might be able to give me some pointers on the weather. I also am trying to choose between Beach Palace and Playacar Palace. I really want a beach wedding and some people have said there is no beach at beach palace. Let me know if you could help me with any of this, I would really appreciate it.

Can I ask how you book through a member? I am assuming that they are timeshare members but can it be anyone of just someone in your wedding party?

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda   
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again
