Not sure how it works, I asked for my date and time back in February. At that time, they said we can't confirm 100% since the 2014 calendar is not open yet. But we took a note of your date and will let you know when the calendar opens so we can take your down payment. They emailed me back in April to say there's already someone at 3 we can offer you 1 o'clock......Let me tell you I wasn't impress ! Why didn't they tell me that in February ??? Oh well...lots of frustration but I'll go with that...can't do much !
So the plan is to have the ceremony 1:00 to 1:30 then pictures from 1:30 to 3:30 and hang around till dinner which will be early I guess...and I'm having a cocktail after dinner that's why I didn't really want to have one before and after !! The thing is...people will be drunk before diner because there's so much time to kill !! I'm still not happy with my time, I don't understand why we can't do it later

I am strongly considering having my July 2014 wedding at this resort. I've heard many good reviews from people that have been to this resort in the past, including a friend who was married there back in 2009. I've looked at the wedding packages that are available and I am leaning towards the Mayan Pearl package. Although I love the look of the tulle and the pearls, I don't really care for having everything in all one colour. Does anyone know if you can mix and match colours from the packages, or substitute different kinds of flowers? If not, I'm thinking of just doing white, and then getting my flowers from an outside vendor to add a pop of colour.
I'm also curious about what the dinner options are like. I've heard that you have to have a private reception, if you have more than 40 people. I'm guessing we'll be closer to 50 guests, so we probably won't have a choice. Does anyone know if you can still have your dinner in one of the buffets, if you have over 40 guests? It wouldn't be my first choice, but I also don't want to spend an arm and a leg to eat dinner at an all-inclusive resort. It seems kind of silly to me.
Last question (for now), does anyone know much about the poolside reception (cocktails only) by the las rocas location? I would love to do something like that, but I can't seem to find much information about it. Also, if anyone has any pictures of a poolside reception in this location, I'd love to see them.

I am still trying to decide on resorts in the RM and Grand Palladium seems to be getting great reviews! One issue seems to be that they do a lot of weddings per day. Does anyone have any sense of whether there is a limit to the number of weddings per day at the resort?

But dont worry about that because Vanessa (WC) told me that although there are 2 brides gettin married the same day,you are not going to see the other wedding as times/locations are different
Thanks Carlota---this is great to know! So many lovely resorts, and only one wedding! LOL

Hi, I haven't decided yet which colour to go for with the package. I'm thinking either the pink one or the orange one. As far as flowers go, I am finding the ones from their website quite expensive. I have been looking around for outside vendors and or DIY projects to see if there are less expensive options/alternatives. Have you decided what colour you will be going with?

Hi, silly me (I'm new to this), I tried to reply but it went somewhere else....so you may see my response twice on this thread....I am leaning towards orange, but haven't yet decided. Have you decided what colour option you will be going with? As with the flowers, I am finding the options on the GP website quite expensive, so I am looking around for either DIY projects or for outside vendors that provide alternatives at a lower cost. The mayan pearl package does include the brides bouquet, groom's boutanniere, and ceremony decorations, but I would really love to have my bridesmaid and grooms men have flowers and boutannieres as well. Will you be decorating your reception as well (ie, centerpieces?)
