2011 & 2012 PLAYACAR PALACE BRIDES!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies,

Before anything big THANKS to everyone who nicely, kindly and thoughfully has published helpful tips, ideas and information for all of us... :)

Believe it or not I just booked my wedding for December 11, 2011, I know last minute crazy but long story which may tell you after my wedding writing my reviews for all of you... but for now I am in panic and have LOTS of questions:

- How much does it cost the make-up and hair do for the bride? was it good quality and satisfactory?

- How much does it cost the mani and pedicure? was it good quality and satisfactory?

- For the semi-private dinner, is that limited to only the mexican or the italian restaurant? can I bring my own deco to make it more special at dinner time?

- What would be your choice for a private function to get a nice view or terrace feeling?

- Does the resort has a night club for dancing inside to be able to continue once the dinner is finished?

- Someone knows what the "Pictures Package A" contains? someone knows how good is the work of the resort's photographer?

- I saw in the pics of Tanya beautiful star fishes/sea stars deco on the chairs of the ceremony at the beach, where did you get them? did the hotel facilitate them to you?

- I am looking to get the AMBER package but regarding the bride's bouquet, I am not thrilled about the flowers of the package, is there a chance to negotiate about the flowers and color of them? I am looking to have the orange as the color theme of my wedding and would like my bouquet to be made of orange lillies and roses...

 

T H A N K S !!! :)

And interesting that they will be having new packages - I guess I will have to wait and see what they do. I am planning on Navy with lots of brights like pink, orange, green.. so I was going with the complimentary package and then bringing my own decor. 

 

Thanks for the update! 

 

 

HI Smspringer13,

 

My case is a bit different because I asked to speak to a supervisor as Janina who was suppose to be handling things had been away a lot.  I was getting frustrated so I said to them that I needed this put in my contract right away or I would take my business elsewhere.  I spoke to Gretal and she got on it but also passed it on to another wedding coordinator to actually draw up the contract.  At first they said it would have to wait until Janina got back on October 31st but when I put my foot down, she said she would send it off in 5 minutes!!!

Gotta love it huh?!

Anyways, good luck!

Hi Ladies!

So today marks the day we get the ball rolling!  We are flying Westjet out of Toronto, and it has been dramarama getting it organized. 

 

I'm so excited and was reading that they are adding turquoise as one of the new package colours?  That's fantastic!

 

 

Our wedding is slated for 10.10.12.

I can totally relate!!!  I tried the package idea at first and that was so stressful that I abandoned the idea.  We are just doing a room block now and everyone can sort out their own airfare!  Good for you for getting that organized.  Congratulations too!

Hello Ladies!

 

Just wondering if anyone knows who the inhouse DJ for playacar palace is?  I am looking at a few options but not sure on prices as I have to factor in the outside vendor fees.

What is the price for Doremixx? I am also interested in Dj mannia but not sure which to use.  Are those approved vendors?  I would prefer not to have to pay an extra fee but I also want a good dj.

If anyone has info on this, it would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks and happy planning to all !

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
