    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?
