Any Grand Palladium brides?

I was wondering the same thing about a private reception. So far Rocio seemed adament about needing 40 people. We only have 25 to 30 and are told we have to have it in one of the restaurants: Mexican (adelita), Mediterranean (Mare Nostrum) or Italian ( Portofino ). I'd think if we were willing to pay then they'd let us...perhaps not. There is a nice terrace off the Italian restaurant that seems like it could give more privacy than being "roped off" inside the other restaurants.
Also we only get to choose 1 meal for everyone...I sure hope all 30 people have the same tastes...seems silly we can order normally from the menu...what happens if we just all showed up as if it were any other night to one of the restaurants, we'd be able to order anything right?
Also it's becoming aggrivating not hearing back from the resort in a more timely manner. We've got just over a month to go and it takes a week to hear back from them

I am not sure what day you would need, as I am not sure when flights go out of New Brunswick. We have guests coming from Newfoundland, and I think their flights would arrive on the Monday- not sure if it the same everywhere in the east or not.
We are now holding out for a date in May instead.
To be continued...

On the other hand, I sent out my save the dates, mine alone are about 30, but i'm sure about 10 of those can't make it and surprisingly 2 people I expected to come might have become recession casualties :-[ I'm trying to get my fi to extend his list (currently - no joke - only 5 people) but he prefers a small wedding. I set up my wedding website (Welcome to Ayla and Oleg's Wedding page!) using Joomla and the RSVP portion using Fabrik (I'm a web developer - but this took almost no coding at all). The RSVP part is not published yet, going to wait until I send out the official invites - message in a bottle that I'm putting together to cut costs. And then I'll wait Oh and I need to find a dress!

Sorry, but I kinda have to vent here. I have my wedding booked for Dec 22, 2009. 22 people booked so far. I've been in contact with Rocio a fair bit about things over email - I'm sure you all know how she is; sometimes she'll reply within an hour other times she'll take like a week. Well I've been trying to ask her about having the reception at La Laguna (I'm not sure if I even have enough people for this) and its like she ignores the emails pertaining to this topic!! I've got replies from her to emails I sent after the one asking about La Laguna. I don't want to be annoying and send the same email many times (which I already kind of did - over a period of over 2 weeks or so), but I don't know what else to do. Has anyone else had this kind of "selective responding" from her? any ideas on what to do?

As for finding the information you need- there is definitely answers to your question on this thread...somewhere. I would scroll through when you have time, and I am sure you will find the info you need from other brides.

Here is what I got from her for our June 5, 2009 wedding:
"In regards to the number of guests for the private reception.. if the minimum
of people for a private event it`s 25 guests... but if the number is less than 25 people and you want still to go for the private reception I will need to charge for the 25 even the final head count it`s less than that."
