That's kind of what I was hoping actually! I think I will email Rocio and see if we can do it that way instead. The setup she emailed me had the head table and 6 round tables around the "dance floor." I have to email her our menu selections anyway!
Any Grand Palladium brides?

Hi Ladies, Does anyone know what the reception options are( restaurants, prices, menu's etc.)? I have emailed Rocio many times regarding this but have yet to hear back. Thanks so much!
If anyone has this info you can email it to me at email@example.com (it would be greatly appreciated!)

Christine, I will email you the menu list for the private reception. The list says 2009 prices, but this is what Rocio has sent me 3 times now...

Hi Erin, Thank you soo much! I appreciate it! So can you not have a reception at any of the a la cartes?

You can have a reception at one of the a-la-carte restaurants but I do believe there is a limit of 20 people. If you have more than 20 guests, you need to have a private reception. Plus, I believe you only have the tables until 9PM? Versus having a private reception until 11PM.

No, you can have a reception at one of the a la cartes even if you have more than 20 people. Depending on the size of the group, it could eliminate some of the options, but I think it's like 30 or 35 people max for a couple (or maybe just one) of the a la cartes. Otherwise, you'd have to go into one of the buffet style restaurants. This is what Rocio told me when I was trying to figure out our options. As I explained in my email though, unless you have a private reception, you cannot have any music or any other form of entertainment, and like Stephy said, you only get the space for two hours.

One thing you could do is what we are doing, is have a cocktail time after dinner. Its $5 pp drinks only and if you have 20 people you can have music. I was told up to 40 people for the ala cart restaurants over that have to have a private reception.. The cocktail time is only 2 hrs also. But 2 for dinner 2 for cocktails with music and drinks I think makes for a good inexpensive reception. They will give you the docking station for ipod with speakers.

Beth, they will give the docking station? When I talked to Rocio about that she said they had a cord to hook up to the iPod. I guess I'll have to clarify that with her.

Rocio also mentionned to me that we could bring our ipod for the cocktail (when I asked if there was a sound system so we could bring CDs) and never mentionned a docking station. I assumed they had one...

I have a bunch of pictures my TA took when she went for a site visit in August, would you like me to post some of them?
Such a late reply, I apologize! I would love that!
