Palace Resorts Preferred DJ

Recommended Posts

Besides the photography issue that I had with them (I decided to hire my own anyways) they have been super helpful and accommodating for us.  We will be having close to 100 people attend our wedding.  I hope things look up for you in the future.

Shelbs97,

 

Hiya, can you be more specific about how you ask to have it written into your contract to be able to use any vendor? We have 21 rooms booked (50+ guests) already and I don't want this to be an issue. We don't plan to use many, if any, of their vendors. We spoke about it during out site visit with the WC's but I want to get it in writing.

Hi - in the contract is states that outside vendors are not permitted on premesis.  I had them modify the contract to say "Exception has been made for Bride and Groom to use outside vendors".
I just asked my WC from Miami, Lisa, and she took care of it.  It is in our signed contract : )

Well, considering they botched our site visit, won't answer emails, scheduled a corporate outings Beach Olympics at the same time as my beach ceremony, and actually had the nerve to ask ME to change my wedding date after invitations had ALREADY gone out, they're definitely not on my list of people to trust.  I'm glad you aren't having a hard time...I know 4 other brides who have been having nightmare experiences at Palace Resorts.  It may have to do with the fact that they're the least expensive resort to hold a wedding at....but regardless, they should be a little more accomodating, especially since my invite list was 215 people and I was bringing them a lot of business.

I have 2 quick questions.  Was it really just THAT easy to get them to agree to the outside vendor exception?  You just asked for it, and they said, ok, and put it right in the contract?  Also, with this Exception for outside vendors, do you still have to pay for a day pass for them to enter the resort, or is this exception allowing them in without the daypass?

thank you for the wording, i'm sorry you've been having so many problems! Did you end up changing the date of your wedding?

I pressed my Miami WC for this exact exemption multiple times, and every time she shot me down.  She actually replied, "for the final time, we can not add that wording to our contract.  The only outside vendor you may be able to use is a photographer, and you would have to purchase a room or a daypass for them to enter the resort". 

 

No luck for me on getting it added.  Im not really concerned.  Our DJ and photographer are both 'guests' of our anyway.  I would have like the options of using a different furniture company than Zuniga Decor Cancun, but oh well.  I guess I could always work on my onsite WC, maybe she will allow more.

that's so weird that some WC allow it and some don't, I hope I get one that allows it!

I know I am so confused can you hire an outside DJ or not? What is the real cost to bring them in if you can? Who has already had a wedding at a Palace Resort and were you able to bring in an outside DJ? What did it cost you?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
