    Thank you. :)  Do you by any chance know if they hotel takes the welcome bags to the guests rooms? I heard they might charge for each welcome bag, that is fair i guess. :-I  

    Did you do welcome bags by any chance?  I dont know if I should give them out at the Welcome Dinner or give it to the hotel... I am turning Wedding CRAZYYY! Lol! hehe!



    Hey Tabby,

     

    Yes I did, and they do charge a fee, but will hand them out for you. I handed them out at the welcome dinner, and it was just fine.

      I qualified for all private functions, I was not charged ANY set up fee what so ever UNLESS I wanted a function on the beach, which I didnt have, but did have all events outside, with the exception of the farewell bruch the day after the wedding.  I have open bar with private bartender for 4 hours )again no additional charge)    If you are having a private reception you have private bar set up with bartender and private servers specific to your wedding.  You wedding coord. stands by the whole time up until the cake is served.    I am not sure if they will charge you for linens if you have one of the wedding collections/ package,s I chose the complementary package and was not charged for linens.

        Hey Tanya :)

         

        They do charge for the Cielo Terrace set up though dont they?  I thought that was like $6pp or something.  Did you have your cocktail hour there?  The ceremony is at the beach, they dont charge for that either.  Cool!  These people confuse you at the Miami office... you see all kind of charges on the contract too the whole $6pp on the Cielo Terrace ... the other charges at the reception.  But maybe you are right that is if you get a collection which we are getting sorta.  We are coping the Amethyst collection with the lines and chuppa lines etc. so maybe that is the charge I am seeing.  I am so lost... LOL! 

         

        But its good to know what you did and didnt do. HELPS SOOO MUCH! :) 

         

        BTW where did you have your morning after breakfast?  There is a inside option?

          So, has anybody been married at Playacar Palace recently? I'm being told by my travel agent that they are no longer accepting outside venders such as DJ, Photographer and Hair/make-up  artist. Can anybody confirm this? Or were you able to pay the day pass and bring them in? This is news to me and I already have down payments and contracts will all of them. This is a huge red flag for me if this cant happen!

            Sharkyak: Hmmm. I will ask my wedding coordinator who I hunted down for you.  I dont think that is the case because noone would want to get married there... I will ask her and let you know.  :)  When are you getting married?

              Noelles...I see you said that you have a ton of pictures from your site visit...I would love to see them:) Would you be able to email me some of the different resorts? My email is

              on the upside, tabby I dont know if u have been to the Playacar Palace yet or not, but it is literally the nicest beach I have seen in Mexico.  When we went to do our visit we went to 18 different resorts and honestly the Palace resorts by far the most cost effective and honestly the nicest with the nicest staff. I have a ton of pictures if you would like to see them and I am so happy with our choice.  We are traveling with a ton of kids so we decided on the cove to keep them occupied and safe, my thinking being that Playacar  is awefully close to 5th ave and while its perfect for the adults, I want to be able to just let my kids go for a bit and I cant do that unless it is secluded lol I think they can be trouble magnets.  FH says they have the best pina colodas too...

                  Hey, I had a welcome cocktail on the cielo terrace 2 days before the wedding bc there were only a few guests there so i wanted something for those people that came in early, and my cocktail hour after the ceremony and before the reception was there as well, I did not pay the $6.00 pp.  When I left there, my total bill was maybe $1000.00 and that was bc I upgraded my cake and it was for flowers small things etc...PS.  the only thing that I EVER did with Miami was the original wedding contract and the FIRST site visit was set up through them...they were very confusing and information was very inconsistant.  So I would take EVERYTHING Miami says with a greain of salt.  Not saying dont be prepared for what they are saying, just reconfirm with your WC once you start speaking with them.
