    1) What is the setup like for private reception? Are there any lights or lanterns?  If I bring my own paper lanterns, could you please set them up for free? 

    If you bring paper lanterns; of course we can assist you with this, we just need to consider an extra fee of 65usd as “decoration set up fee”

     

    2) I would like to personalize the complimentary wedding package.  How much are the Chiavari chairs, white pergola structure and the pergola Shepherd's hooks placed down the aisle from the Nautical Collection if I were to rent them? Unfortunately, the decoration from the collections is exclusive for each package; if you are not interested in purchasing the package; what we can do is that I can give you the contact of a person from Decorations who can assist us with this; her name is Vania, she works at “Zº±iga Decorations” and she is the one who can assist you giving you some ideas similar to the ones you are requesting and prices, her email is vania@decocancun.com

    3) Is there a more secluded beach ceremony where there won't be many people walking by the ceremony? At 4:00pm is the latest time we attend ceremonies; sometimes we try to move the people for 30 minutes that the ceremony takes; however, as you may know this is a public area, so I think you will have some people walking but not many.

    4) Does del Sol consider as outside photographer? Do you have the approved vendor list? In case you are interested in pictures and video services, I recommend you to get in contact with Janeth from Smile Market, the company which works for us at: wedding3@palaceresortsweddingphotos.com ; “Del Sol” and “La Luna” photographers are the outside photographers who can take pictures at the Resort with a day pass which is 91usd per person per day; these are the only ones who are allowed to come to the Resort as an outside photographer.

    5) Could you send me pictures of the flowers included in the complimentary package? The flowers that are included are roses; I’m still waiting for a response to know which other kind of flowers does this package include; as soon as I know, I’ll let you know.

     

    I'm still waiting to hear back from Miami office regarding the wedding date and contract.  Will keep you posted regarding the communications between the wedding coordinator.


    HI Vazworld,

     

    About the lanterns, how are you planning on setting those up?  Does PP provide you with a large pole type thing to string them on?

    Just curious because I am looking at hiring someone for lighting.

    Thanks!

      Hello everyone! I know that a couple of people had been inquiring about photographers and I just wanted to say that you might want to check out Dean Sanderson at www.deansandersonweddings.com  His portfolio looks great. Unfortunately, he is not available on our date; however, he was REALLY quick at responding to my questions and VERY nice! Hope everyone's planning is going well! 84 days to go for me!

        I was wondering where everyone is planning their rehearsal dinners? We have about 30 guests, but 18 of those are family members or are in the wedding party - and since it is everyone's vacation, we were thinking of doing it with the family members/wedding party only. Are people planning this at the resort or a place outside on 5th Avenue? We were hoping to find a decently priced place along 5th Avenue to encourage everyone to get out and about a little... any recommendations/suggestions would be great! :)

            Hi Kristyn! I just sent you a friend request to see your pictures-- My name is Joleen-- just so you don't wonder about the strange person requesting a friend add on FB! We get married at PP on 9/1 and will be hiring a professional photographer (outside of the resort). We havent jumped that hurdle of approval from them yet with an outside vendor, but I'm curious to see the work your photographer did. Its difficult to really know who is good, just by looking at a website alone. I'll have to go back and read the earlier posts for who you had taking your pictures... I'm excited for you guys that you are happy with the results-- it's such a huge & important part of the big day!! Thank you for sharing :)

              Ladies, don't discount the idea of bringing flowers down with you!  It saved us a TON of money and no one believed that they weren't real and they look even more real in the pictures.  The woman I used was very affordable.  Pictures of the bouquet are in the blog http://www.jennycastrophotography.com/blog/?p=554  and the woman's site is http://www.weddingwire.com/biz/simply-classic-creations-noblesville/website/1ee97e2791be8445.html
               


               

              P.S. (From my earlier reply to a different thread)-- OMG! I just checked out the website for your flower woman (Simply Classic Creations) & she lives 10 minutes from me in the Indy area!!! Thank you so much!! :)
