¡Hola chicas! ¿C³mo est¡is?
Today I have received a mail from Vanessa. Suming up for those who not remember, last week I asked Vanessa for the possibility to make the party at the beach after our dinner. She has answered me that for that I would have to choose a new wedding package (the ones of Karen Bussen).
Last year I booked my wedding at Grand Palladium and there were 3 types of packages: the catholic one (for marrying at the small church on the resort), the Crystal one (you can still take a look at it on the website) and the Diamond.
My fiance and I chose the Diamond as it seemed for us the most complete. It is like the Crystal but includes more flower arragements and other details for the bride and groom (as strawberrys in the room that night, the ironing of my dress and suits, etc).
Another thing that we liked a lot of the Palladium weddings was the possibility to bring your own vendors from outside. So besides the photographer, cameraman, etc we also decided to contract to a flower shop in Playa del Carmen for more flower arragements on the beach marble gazebo, centerpieces, etc...
Well, I toke a look to the new wedding packages just because we were interested in taking the beach party, and I wrote to Vanessa asking here more information as I had several doubts. She answered me that if you choose the new ones, it is not possible to change the colours or add any flowers. Vanessa was very clear in her email: you could not add the arragements you want with this packages.
So, I am a little sad about this because we thought that the beach party must be a very entertaining thing, but we prefer to have our flowers arragements that we really want.
And Vanessa has also explained me that the costs of the packages does not include the type of ceremony as the "older" ones. If you take a look at the website is said that the vow renewal has a cost of 300 usd, the legal wedding is 650 usd and the catholic one is 500 usd. So you have to add this cost to the price of each package.
I hope I had been clear (my English is so-so, lol).
About the wristsbands, I have not asked this to Vanessa yet but one Mexican bride that I met thourgh Tripadvisor told me that they kept them on the security box of the rooms and the next morning, everybody went directly to one of the receptions with the old one to obtain a new wristsbands.
I have a question girls, for what it is OOT bags? What does it mean "OOT". I discovered from your photo, MyTye, that is sth for the bridesmaid and/or maid of honor. Right?
In Spain we do not have bridesmaids or maid of honor in the weddings. I wanted to have them as I am marrying in America and I have discovered that this is not only typical on the States (as we saw here on the movies, lol) but from Canada to Chile... So one of my best friends that is coming to the wedding, is going to be the maid of honor as the other girls dont want to dress the same... But I am happy to have my friend as maid of honor! I am enjoying a lot with her thinking in original ideas, organizing things,etc what an experience!
¡¡¡Un saludo chicas!!
And yes!! We are going to stay at Grand Palladium until August 19th. So of course if you want to meet us, it would be great!!
