But the MAIN reason we are looking at the Palace resorts is their AMAZING group deal going on, I am eager to see if any of you other brides are taking advantage of it!?
The deal is if we can book 25 rooms, for at least three nights (so 75 room nights or more) then the Palace will offer FREE UNLIMITED Private functions, as well as 7 free nights for the bride and groom! I mean, can this offer be any more insane!? I'd love to be able to have 60-75 guests at our destiantion wedding so I definitely think we can hit this mark. Is this too good to be true or what? Anyone else taking advantage? We have to book before lke Dec 23rd I think, 50% down. I want to fly down asap for a site inspection though, my FH is worried all this free talk means the quality of food etc will be compromised. I'd love any feed back on this!
Thank you!! That website took me FOREVER to get together!!!!
O Fun, if have your wedding at the PP, your wedding will be the day before mine!!! Ours is set for OCt 10th!!
We too had chosen the PP bc of the incentives for us. I chose the free wedding package and will add what I want as needed, I didn't go through the hotel bc I didn't want to put that much money down at once, so I used Tammy (the BDW owner) I did have to give a deposit but it was minimal, less than 2000.00, i believe that it is based on how many rooms you will be blocking. So I highly recommend you contact Tammy or any of the BDW travel agents.
We did go for a site visit in September, I can assure you the food is not compromised, my FI is a "SNOB" if you will when it comes to food, has been in the restaurant business for years as well as MANY of our guests in addition to that, we are Italian, so...food was prob the most important to us next was Alcohol! LOL
Anyway, we had lunch at the international Buffet when we were there it was great! Wide selection and tastes for all!
To be honest, I am not sure how they can offer such a great deal, bc there really is no catch!! My contracts are signed and ready and I too was waiting for the catch. I am assuming that they make the money with decorations, music etc. in addition to all the business that you are giving them.
If you are going to go down for a site visit, make sure you contact the wedding department in Miami to set up an appointment bc the Wedding planner works between a few of the palace properties.
I have gotten a ton of info to date, so if you are looking for something specific, please let me know.
