I have a quick question: Does anyone know what the cost jumps to if we have over 40 guests at the reception? I think we are going to have between 50 and 60 people (who will probably all be staying at the resort). We do not necessarily need a private reception...and I really do not want to have to pay the $50-$60/person for a private reception.

Congrats on setting the date. I've been to the Palladium 4 times and am having my wedding there now - wouldn't have it any other way! Unfortunately if you have a group of over 40 people you need to do the private reception because there aren't really any other spaces to hold a group that large. So how much your reception costs ends up depending on what meal you choose for the recpetion (not sure what its like for 2010) but for 2009 I think its between 55 and 65 per person, and then there's the $20 per person you need to pay for the ceremony too, so it does get more expensive then it first seems.

Can't you do a dinner at the reguloar buffet as well with a group over 40? I may be totally off, and don't have the e-mail that Rocio sent me about that one, so I'm not totally sure. I will check when I am back at my work computer next week.

I'm not entirely sure, you might be right but based on what the package says, I'm pretty sure the buffet is only for smaller groups. This is a quote from the wedding pricing package Rocio sent me:
"These reservations do not apply for groups bigger than 40 people. Groups with more than 40 guests it will be necessary to hire dinner separately with different cost. "
Just out of curiosity, what is everyone doing for the recption?

Hope this helps everyone! Pretty sad that I had to go to work to get this, and I don't have any of this information at home on my free time...hmmmm e-mail monitoring anyone? hehe.
1)If your group it`s no bigger than 40 people and you have a limited budget and all your guests are staying at this hotel, you can take advantage of the all inclusive and we can help you to make a reservation in advance for one of our a la carte restaurants, just that you will need to be aware that it won`t be a private dinner (so there could be other guests having dinner at the same time as you in the same restaurant); a set menu will be required (this mean that the entire group will be having exactly the same courses) and the service will be for 2 hours. (there is a dresscode for men at the ala carte restaurants which is to wear long pants).
2)If the group it`s bigger than 40 people and you have a limited budget.. then the only option for a group dinner will be to block off some tables for you at one of our regular buffet restaurants (not private dinner).
3)We have available also the option of a private dinner but for this one there is an additional cost on top of the wedding package price, as well as on top of the 20 usd extra fee per person (since the wedding packages include only the service for 8 `people). If you want a privat dinner the cost for this will be based on the menu you choose (we have different menus and these have different prices), and the minimum number of people we require for a private reception it`s 25 guests. I am enclosing to this message the Gala Menus so you can take a look of them and give you a better idea of what I am talking about.. Please notice that the private dinner it`s upon availability since we have specific areas where we can have this event done and we use these areas also for other functions.
I hope this information is helpful and for any other question you may have, please feel free to contact me again.

As we are on reception talk, I was wondering what you decided to do, and how many guests you have?
