Also, there was no topless ladies the week we were there. There were some at our wedding hotel. I think it just depnds if any Europeans are there at the time.

I posted a reply but I think it didn't post for some reason but I'll reiterate what I said on it. I got married at Le Blanc March 30th. I was nervous since no one I could find had gotten married there. It was AMAZING!!!!! I couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding. It was exactly what I'd hoped for and then some and it was totally stress free. If any of you want to see pictures I haven't been able to up load them to this site for some reason, either email me and I can try to attach some pics or if you are on facebook search for me, Heidi Mason Sarabia (let me know what your name is so I accept you as a friend). If you have any specific questions let me know but here's a recap of it all.
First of all Rebecca who is the wedding coordinator for the Palace resorts is wonderful...totally on top of everything and works very hard to make everything go smootly and perfectly which she accomplished. She made my wedding completely stress free. No bridezilla here. I picked a package that wasn't the most expensive one (the next one down) and I'm glad I did because I had everything I wanted. I will say that for destination weddings Le Blanc is more expensive than most BUT it is worth EVERY penny. If you don't get the most expensive package you can upgrade things like table centerpieces and bouquets (but for a huge price) bridesmaid bouquets to match mine were 250. a piece...to upgrade bridal bouquets was also about 250. NOT worth it...at least in my opinion. Everything is so elegant. I wanted to have my private reception outside (they only do buffet style outside) but it was too windy so I was disappointed at first in having to choose a restaurant. I am SO glad it worked out that way. I think that even if it isn't windy that you and your guests will be more comfortable in air conditoned comfort inside rather than the hot humid (sometimes windy) weather outside). We choose the italian restaurant and had the filet mignon as the main course. It was possibly the BEST filet I've EVER had. I eat filet all the time and it was incredible...even the professional chef in the family was really impressed. The rest of the meal consisted of what seemed like an endless parade of unique gormet dishes (I think there were 7 courses including the cake). Also, we were going to have our cocktail hour outside but because of the wind had it brought inside...we had to beg a little but ended up having it in the martini bar on the 2nd floor with a beautiful ocean view! It was amazing. The photographer was great. (Our package came with 32 prints). Then, instead of paying a lot more for the photo packages we paid 150. for the photographer's CD which had like 200 photos on it. Way more than enough! We also had our relatives download pics to a shutterfly page we created.
The food was great...especially for being an all inclusive. You could literally order a filet and bottle of wine at 3 am and your butler would bring it within 20-30 min. We stayed at Le Blanc for 8 nights and then went to Adventura Spa for our 4 night honeymoon (it was supposed to be longer but we loved Le Blanc so much we extended our stay there). I wish we'd stayed the entire time there. The food wasn't half as good and I got sick there. It was really hard to go from Le Blanc to Adventura...as nice as it is...a definite step down. Leave Le Blanc for last. Our butler service was great. You can ask him for anything day or night. You can choose from an assortment of pillows (I loved the lavender pillow). The night before the wedding I went back to my room and had the butler draw the wirlpool with camomille bath salts...had relaxing music playing and lavendar aromatherapy (which they bring to your room...again you can choose from a menu of sents)...and fell asleep with my lavendar pillow.
I really could go on and on but I won't. If you have any specific questions let me know...and if you want to see my wedding pics let me know your name and find me on facebook! Good luck to all of you. If I could get married anywhere in the world and didn't have a budget I would get married at Le Blanc all over again!

If you have facebook befriend me...name is Heidi Mason Sarabia. I have a lot of wedding photos to look at there. If you're not on facebook...go to Photo Books, Cards & Stationery, and Photo Share Sites | Shutterfly and sign in using firstname.lastname@example.org and as the password "cancun". I have a bunch of pictures there too. Hope this helps!
PS. As long as you don't want to have kids under 18 at your wedding (which isn't allowed at the adult only resort)...I would get married there again in a heartbeat. It was perfect and not at all stressful. It's a wonderful resort with an awesome wedding planner. Good luck and congrats!
