I am looking at possibly booking my wedding at the Grand Palladium in Riviera Maya as well. When I was looking over their packages it seems like they do not have the free wedding options as many other resorts have. Does anyone have any information on this? We don't want to add a lot of additional expenses onto the trip itself since we will also be having a reception at home.

Ya, Rocio can be a little hit or miss on the discounts. I think she is pressured from management to be able to discount certain things and not others. For example, we are being charged the extra $20 pp over 8 ppl, and I tried to get that reduced or waived with no luck. She only said that we could only have chairs, cake and champagne for 8 ppl and not pay extra. We didnt want to have our guests stand, so that option wasnt for us. My best suggestion is just to email Rocio and see what she says. She offered the $250 discount as we are bringing our own officiant, it is probably something she frequently discounts.

 

The GP doesn't have any free wedding options, like some resorts offer. We aren't having an AHR, so we felt like the expense was worth it.

Hi Ladies

I am another GP Wedding - June 10 or 11, 2009.

We are in the early planning stages of our wedding and have not been in contact with Rocio yet.

 

Ashleykmorgan...if you have any pics you would like to share that would be great!!

 

Any other tips or stories to share would be great.

 

Happy planning everyone!

Cheers!

They'll also let you book part of one of the a la carte restaurants for up to 40 guests at no additional charge. If you go over 40 guests, you must do the private reception, so we are trying to stay under that number (it gets pricey after that, though there are definitely some advantages to it!). I'm looking into the cocktail hour and what all it includes- I'll let you ladies know:)

jcarson- We are trying to decide what to do for our reception as well! I want a semi-private area, and they've assured me that they can do that, so I'm not too worried about it. I'd really like to do the private reception, but that extra $45pp for it just prices it out of my range! Good luck in your planning, and if I get any interesting tid bits, I'll be certain to post them here.

We're getting married at the Palladium on January 23, 2009. I asked Rocio (who has been great at responding!) about the cocktail hour and she said it would be $14 USD per person. We're thinking of doing this between the ceremony and dinner cause we are having an early (1:00) ceremony!

Our ceremony is at 4pm, so we'll likely go from ceremony to pics to dinner. I'm not sure we need to pay for a cocktail hour as there won't be much time to kill before dinner and we can always just go to a bar and get drinks. However, we might do cake and champaign before dinner (to get the cake cutting pictures while we still have a photographer) .... too many decisions.
