I have a date set at Grand Palladium and haven't started going through the specifics of the contract with Rocio/Erika yet but now some members of my family have become unsupportive of my choice. No one in my family has ever been to a destination wedding and I've chosen it because I want a simple, fun and memorable experience. Our families have never met as they live across the country from each other and I thought this would be a great opportunity to spend some quality time getting to know each other.
Anyways, I'm not sure how to convince everyone that this is the great idea I know it is. Anyone been to the Palladium before? How is the food? Can you order a "custom" meal for a private reception? I think this would make a difference to my guests as the quality of the food is also a serious concern for many of them!
Thanks for letting me vent a bit!

Definitely check out the palladiumaddict.net info, including the forum. The food comes very well recommended for an AI resort- it probably won't always be gourmet, but everyone says it is tasty and has a good variety. To have a private reception is $45+ per person extra, and there are several different menu options that you can pick from. I think Rocio might be able to let you personalize them a bit, as well. There are so many restaurants and buffets available that you should be able to please everyone, at least with regards to food!
We aren't planning on that many people, so we are just going to have them set aside a part of the Portofino restaurant.
I would also use the wide variety of included water and resort activities, and the proximity to some of the Riviera Mayas most fantastic ecological and historical landmarks. That is part of what sold us on the resort!

Does the Palladium have their own photographer or does everyone have to use an external photographer, I know some resorts have onsite photographers. How much do the external ones cost on average?
We started looking at this site several months ago and really wondered why there wasn't much posted about the Palladium. A friend of ours went there last winter and they said it was awesome!

The Palladium does not have their own photographer. However, there are no restrictions on bringing a photographer in. AND the best part is, there is no charge to bring one in either. So, feel free to book whoever you want for your day.
