      LOL I was trying to research what kind of materials the bands were made of to see if I could use heat or oil to get it off! I was SOOO happy when I read your post.
      LOL! Too funny! I didn't even think of that!!

        I know that Rocio said we could bring a CD of the music we want to use down for her to put into a cd player. I do not know if they will have anything available for iPod hook-up, but at least you can get a few songs on CD, which will be all you need for the ceremony at least. I'm also going to bring a CD with some music for the cocktail hour(s) that we are having, and part way through we'll have my brother (man of honor?) switch out the CD.

          Hello Brides,
          I am considering booking the Grand Palladium for my wedding over new years 2009/2010 and seem impressed so far with what everyone has written. I am looking for some overall, after all the extras of a separate dinner, costs. I am really just trying to have an idea of what to expect and start saving for.
          Is this resort good for kids? How is the nightlife for singles?
          Thanks so much,
          Janet

            Can you have a private dinner on the beach at the Grand Palladium? I am really hoping for a dinner under the stars with our wedding guests! Please let me know if you can and what some prices would be like if you know.
            Thanks
            Janet

              I don't know about dinner under the stars, but you can do a private dinner. It costs an extra $45pp (or $55, depends on the meal you choose) for the private reception. I think the options are covered, but they are open air, so you would still get the gorgeous outside feeling.

                I think there is also an additional $900 or $1000 for "renting" the private location (Gran Azul or La Laguna), on top of the $45pp. I could be wrong but that was the impression I was under anyways.

                A dinner on the beach under the stars would be perfect!! I'd be all over that if it was an option!

                  Oh wow! Yet another reason why I'm just going to have our dinner at Portofino! WAY more affordable for us:)

                    Us too... We won't have enough people to make it worth while renting out a private location. It might be worth it for a large group though.

                    When are you guys going to book your hair/makeup appointments? I'm thinking I should do that pretty soon....

                    We are doing a "honeymoon shoot" with out photographer a few days after the wedding and she just suggested that we do it at a different location (I love this idea!). Any suggestions? We are thinking in Playa Del Carmen because there is a beach there so we could get some cool town shots and some beach shots. I'd like some pictures that show Mexico some and not just the beach. Any thoughts?

                      Tara- I'm sure Tamm will have some suggestions b/c she works down there a lot (you did book with her, correct? I don't want to reread the whole post:). In either case, I was considering going to Xel-Ha park and getting some pictures (they will let you in for pics if you sign a waiver), or Akumal. Playa would be a great idea too! My other current obsession is finding someplace to rent horses so that we can do TTD on the beach AND on horseback (I own horses, so thats why its so appealing to me!). One other idea might be Cozumel? I know it takes a while to get there, but its a GORGEOUS island, so it might be an idea!
