I think if you have to wait a while at the airport, it would be frustrating as the actual shuttle ride will only be 15 mins. Waiting for the shuttle is the worst b/c you are so excited to be there and you just want to get to the resort and get out in the sun!

I know that you can arrange your airport transfers through MP. You can go onto their website for reservations. I think it's $10 per person.

There is a way to pay $30 to be a "supporter" of BDW to have immediate access to upload and download attachments... OR... you can make at least 150 posts to be considered a Junior member and it will allow you to upload and download as well

Have any other brides on here requested a new WC?  If so what was your experience with them changing it?  Mine has been horrible!.

Here are the questions I asked my WC in Miami so far:

 

Q: Are there multiple photograpers to choose from? Can I see samples of their work?

A: There is more than one photographer.  MP just entered a new contract with Kodak.  There should be a website up with samples soon.

 

Q: The Caribbean Terrace is not included in any of the private event info I received so far.  Is it still available for use.

A: Yes, there is an additional $12 per person set up though.  This additional cost will be applied even if you qualify for the unlimited free events.

 

Q: Can I request a specific WC?

A: Yes as long as the person has not already been assigned on your day.

 

Q: What are the prices for live entertainment for the reception?

A: Mariachi - $580, Mexican Trio - $450, Soloist - $450, Harpist - $480, Jazz Trio - $850, Fire Dancers - $850

 

I also requested price list for the DJ, photographer, outside photographers, optional services for the sapphire package, etc.  If anyone needs this, I'd be happy to email it to you.

I believe....the Word on the street is that DEL SOL is now an approved vendor at Palace Resorts. Not sure about Matt's Other Company La Luna.  But that might be something you want to look into if you want a more photojournalism look =)
 

I am guessing they might not want to advertise it because its less money they get. I dunno! Maybe Matt can fill us in. All I know is that would be AWSOME!

I would love to see the info for the Sapphire package. I requested additional pictures of the Amber and Emerald and will gladly share once I receive them. Although now that our photographers are joining our group, not sure if we should purchase the package. But I figure it's the only way to ensure we spend the entire $1500. Does anyone know if we still get the Palace member discount if we use the Palace Money to pay?

 

I have also asked about the location of the Terrace Fountain and Terrace Moon.

Jenn - Thanks, I sent you an email. We actually found a photographer couple that isn't charging us anymore than a regular full day for a local wedding. The wife did our engagement shoot and we're pretty happy with them.

 

Is there anyone that I should request to be my on-site wedding coordinator?

Based on the reviews and some of the post I read on here, I requested Kalena.  There are other WC I read good things about, but I can't remember their names.  I can't remember seeing more than two or three bad comments about any of them though.  Everyone seems to rate the on site WC's really high.  That's definitely reassuring.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
