Question for brides married at Palace Resorts

Recommended Posts

Hello-

We leave next week for our wedding at Beach Palace. I am trying to figure out who I should tip and how much. For those of you that have been married at a Palace Resort, can you please give me some advice? Here's who I think is going to want a tip

Wedding Planner

Justice of the Peace

Musicians to play during ceremony

Drink Servers during during cocktail reception

DJ for cocktail reception

Spa services- mani/pedi/hair and makeup

Have I forgot anyone?

 

I ran a search through some of the fourms, but I thought that I would ask the Palace Brides. Any thoughts/info would be great!

Thank you,

Laura

I am taking my time to post the review because nobody has posted a review of a beach wedding, so I want to make it detailed and make sure I post pics. For those that are getting married there, you made an Excellent choice, I checked out many other resorts while there, and this one is absolutely the best for Weddings!! They have a mastery over weddings!

 

P.S. Tina, I brought my wedding coordinator a welcome gift (Jewelry, and a wedding favor), and on my way out I gave her a card and $60 dollars and two wedding favors for her assistants, I am also going to send her pictures of the table set up that she wanted. I didn't know how much to tip, but it was the only money I had left on my way out, I feel guilty because I wanted to give her more. I also tipped every server at the reception 100 pesos and the DJ 200 pesos each. I also tipped every server at the rehearsal dinner 50 pesos each (there were about 4-5 of them)

We tipped all the people you listed...WC was like $50-100, can't remember......and the massage/hair people were $10-$15..........everyone else, I just tipped what I normally would in the US - keeping in mind that they make so little - and everyone was SO accomodating, so we tipped extra for that too.

Here is what we did in regards to tips:

wedding planner $50

justice of the peace $0

Musicians playing during ceremony $40 ($20 each)

Drink Servers during private reception $100 ($20x5)

DJ $25

Spa Services $90 (about 15% of total bill.. they did a great job and we had lots of stuff done)

 

Not sure if it was too much or too little, but this is what we did.
