Playacar Palace 2009 & 2010 Brides - POST HERE!


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I wanted to start a thread for those of us who are marrying at Playacar Palace because I cannot find any info on weddings at this resort. I know there has to be brides out there that are looking for some info/any info, so hopefully we can all help each other out!

 

I spoke with the resort a couple of days ago, and they said new wedding packages are "in the works" for 2010 (possible available for 2009 too)...and they are supposed to be better than what's offered currently. The only info I know about them is there will be color options to choose from.

 

Below is the # to contact Palace to ask any questions you might have:

 

1-800-635-1836 or 1-800-346-8225

 

Also, if you have already gotten married here, and would like to offer suggestions/comments, that would be wonderful!

 

Thanks girls, and hopefully there are at least a few other people out there who are getting married at Playacar Palace!!

 

;o)

 

~ Emily

I am getting married at Playacar Palace on May 22, 2009. Right now, I know little more than what is on the website, but as the wedding date gets closer and the resort gives me more information I will be Happy to share. I am also planning on posting a review after my wedding, so hopefully that will be helpful to anyone who is looking to get married there. There is not a whole lot of people getting married at the resort, which is one of the reasons I picked it. But it does mean that you can read up on the fourm about it, which is kind of a bummer.

Hi,

Congratulations, and I will keep my fingers crossed for you!! Have you heard anything about when their new packages for part of 2009 and 2010 are going to be posted? I heard they were going to be better, but no idea what is included...I am hoping they are not going to be a lot more expensive! Although I also heard that if you'd rather go with one of their current packages, they will still let you do that.

 

I am wondering when we should/can confirm our 2010 date...any ideas? I need to check in with our travel agent again on this, she is sometimes so hard to get a hold of! It's pretty annoying...are you using someone good that works with people in other states?

 

How many people do you think you are going to have at the wedding? Are you going to be able to take advantage of any of their group rate deals?

 

PEACE: I am so sorry, I never saw your post...I haven't checked this thread in so long because I didn't think anyone else replied to it or was getting married at PP! Glad to see there are others who are though! I was looking at Azul Fives, and if $$ weren't the issue for me, I'd go with them in a hearbeat! But, I chose PP since it's more affordable, still modern/contemporary, close to shopping, restuarants, bars (Playa del Carmen's 5th ave is only a 5 min walk) and we can also take the ferry over to Cozumel Palace to eat/drink for free there...heard we can walk into a town from there as well - anyone know which town and is there anything in that town? Also PP's (and all Palace resorts) have great group rates!! Not sure what they will be for 2010, but I am hoping they will be the same since this was also a big reason for us chosing this resort.

 

Of course we haven't confirmed our date yet...so of course I am STILL going back and forth between lots of resorts, and can't stop looking around, but I keep going back to PP...although Cozumel Palace seems really nice too and have great reviews and won many awards...ahhhh!! ;o)

 

Good luck everyone and let's try and keep us all posted!

Emaya 77:

I sent my reservation request in on Monday and still have not heard back from them. I have heard back from MP though. They have the date I want but not the time. We are shooting now for Jan of 2010 in hopes that we can get the time we want. Still waiting to hear back about it.

I have read on the palace website that you should book your day a year in advance if possible since 4:00pm (the most popular time) usually fills up fast. I would send them a reservation request and see what happens.

I am torn myself as to which palace resort I want. Since I am in contact with MP I am leaning more towards having the wedding their but I still am in LOVE with Playacar. I just wonder…..it there a reason why there are only a handful of us interested in getting married at PP.

I do not have a TA. I was thinking about not getting one but I think it is a must so it’s something I need to look into. How did you find yours?

Good luck with your planning and keep me posted.

Thank you Emily! I am excited for all of us. I really, really love Playacar. The only thing I am not the craziest about is that they seem to squeen in 6-8 weddings a day. The resort doesn't seem that big and the thought of running into 7 brides and their parties seems like a lot. Can anyone shed light on this?

Hello. I am getting married at Beach Palace in April. There are three of us on this site getting married there, so I thought that I would visit your site the resorts are part of the same chain. So far, I have only reserved the wedding date & time. We are expecting about 15 people, so it will be small. I am hoping that my onsite WC will make contact soon so I can start to ask her all my questions. Just wanted to say Hi.

HI. We will be getting married at PP as well. July 8, 2009 is our date. Ceremony at 6. Our wedding date falls on a Wednesday so hopefully there won't be as many other weddings going on that day because that does sound kind of chaotic. I don't think so though because we had originally set the time at 4 but then we switched it and it wasn't a problem at all. It seemed like all times were available.

We have our wedding ceremony set and the group rooms have been set aside. Our Palace WC, Katherine, has been great. Every question we have asked her has been answered. Our WP at the resort has contacted us as well but we haven't responded yet. But Katherine has been on top of it all.

The reason we choose PP is because we wanted a more intimate and smaller resort. PP only has about 209 rooms. Every other resort around is 500+. I really didn't like that.

I, myself, am kind of stressing over the whole thing and questioning if PP will be the best place for our wedding. The reason we choose PP is because one of our good friends is a Palace member and she said it is a great resort.

It is true, there is not that much info on the resort. TripAdvisor does have plenty of pics from previous travelers.

As of today, don't know the exact # of attendees. We haven't yet set what kind of reception we will be having. We really do not want an indoor reception but depending on the # of guests that will be going we'll have to decide on that.

But so far the response and the attentiveness of PP has been great.

Would really like to get as much info on PP from previous brides if there are any...

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!

    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
