Welcome! I'm pretty sure that the receptions are from 7-11 (someone correct me if I'm wrong!). I'm not sure of the answers to your other questions! This thread had been really great though. Try doing a search of just this thread of "cocktail reception" and you will get all posts that are about them.

Thanks for the information!  I emailed Rocio today to get the answers.  I agree that this thread has been great!  Have you checked out the Palladium Addict website?  I became a member on their site before my first trip to the Palladium in 2008.  TONS of info. on there too. I found on their website that the bride and groom can stay for free if they book 10 or more rooms.  I emailed the reservation department to get more information on the offer.

Really?!? Hmm... Let me know when you hear about that. Maybe I will get my travel agent to look into it? I wonder how that works if people book through companies in Canada like Air Transat or Sunquest...

@ Stephy: My FI and I are having a hard time finding linen suits here in Ottawa so we are going to go shopping in MTL. Any advice on good places to check out suits?

Here is the information from the Palladium Addict website.  I have not heard from reservations yet.  I also found the information at the Fiesta Hotel Group website too.  When I find out anything more I will let you know!

 

 

Palladium Hotels & Resorts invites brides and grooms to stay for free! 



The Caribbean, Mexico, Brazil, Ibiza…A picture-perfect wedding in any of our 5-Star All-Inclusive Palladium or The Royal Suites Resorts now offers the added bonus of a free room* for the bride and groom. With this special offer, the phrase “the more the merrier “certainly holds true. With a minimum of 10 rooms, the happy couple can stay for free during the same number of nights booked for the rest of the party. 



*Standard double room. Upgrade available with additional charges. Not valid during high season. Subject to availability. Offer available in any of the Palladium and The Royal Suites Resorts in Brazil, Dominican Republic, Ibiza, Jamaica and Mexico. At least 10 rooms must be booked by wedding guests; nights the bride and groom may enjoy free depend on the nights that the other 10 rooms coincide.

Interesting! I wonder how this works when you book through a wholesale carrier.... Also, when is "high season"? I'm guessing January! Too bad for me :( I'll be interested to hear what they have to say to you!

Not to rain on your parade, but we had 70 guests stay at the resort and we never got a free room.  They wouldn't even let us have a room for the day of the wedding so that my now-husband could get ready in while I got ready in our own room...

 

You can get deals through your travel agency... you get rebates when you have a certain amount of guests book through them, which we did... but they have all kinds of rules you need to respect.  Everyone usually has to leave on the exact same day, with the exact same flight and have the exact same kind of room at the resort.  But Grand Palladium itself won't offer you anything... you'd have to get it through your travel agent, from my experience.  Maybe some other brides had different a different experience.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
