Hi DaryaB and Brides of Palladium!
I'll be in Grand Palladium next week to meet with Vanessa. I guess I'll ask her whatever questions I've got. How are you bringing your OOT bags? We get one luggage check in and one hand-carry. If the gowns are hand carried and luggage ( clothing,shoes,etc) are checked in, how will the OOT bags be transported? Please post your ideas.
Vanessa got back to me regarding fireworks, sky lanters and sparklers. Fireworks and Sky lanterns are not allowed because they are a danger to the palapas roofs and the surrounding eco system. Last thing we want is the resort we're getting married in burning down!
They do allow sparklers.

I have short hair so I will probably do it myself and have my girlsfriends help me with the make up. I'm like Samantha when it comes to getting my make-up done by a stranger. I don't want it to look unnatural.
It is so generous of you to get the groomsmen suits and bridesmaids dresses. I wish we could do it but we I have 8 bridemaids and I think we have like 10 guys.
I went to a friend's destination wedding 2 years ago and she had little pop-up coolers (which I still use to this day) with some snacks, bottle water, gum, and sample-size meds like tylenol, tums and pepto-bismol that all of us had to use at some point I was planning on doing something similar and also include spf chapstick, sunscreen, aloe for those that get sunburnt, and bug spray.
My friend also did the maracas as the favors. I will have to do something else because I don't want it to look like I completely copied her idea. But we all had fun with the maracas during the reception
Have any of you ladies picked out your flowers?
