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?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
