    Hi RMbride2b,

     

    I have the same issue with the strong arm tactics of Palace.  I'm not paying $300 for 20 mins of microphone.  ITS RIDICULOUS.

     

    That said- we are bringing our BOSE, wireless speakers, our laptop and a microphone.  We tried it out in the backyard a few weeks ago and it sounds great!  Initially, I didn't want to lug everything, but considering the Bose usage for our reception as well?  Why not?

     

    I would urge you to try it out. Do you have someone " techhie" coming to your wedding?

      If you want to see a super funny clip from our wedding, the link is below.  Don't worry - it won't happen to you - I just have that kind of luck... :) But, I'm glad it happened because it certainly made the wedding unforgettable! (FYI - none of this video was shot by Playacar Palace photographers.  It was all taken by family members.)

        Ladies, I don't know when you booked, but prior to I believe March 2011 there was no fee for sound set up on the beach.  Since I booked before that, I stood firm that I was not paying for it.  That being said, there was a girl who had her wedding day the day before mine who did not have the sound system and you could not hear a thing.  If we could not have had ours for free, honestly I think I would have just shelled out the money.

          I also noticed on their website that it states the newColin Cowie structure for complimentaryceremony will not be used until June 2012 so I assume that means any of us before that will have the old structure.

            We are getting married on the beach and did NOT want to pay $300 for the sound system either, so we are buying a relatively inexpensive PA system we found on amazon. It has wireless microphones and got good reviews. I'll let everyone know how it works. Hey I may even sell it after we get back if it works well!

                Good to know about the sound system. We'll give it a try and see if it works well. No matter what, we are planning to bring and play our own music because we don't need a dance floor.

                 

                Makeup: Adrian's salon (Styling Trio) is only 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. That way I get to save on the day pass for 2-3 people.  I can also use the trial run hair and makeup on the TTD session. I trust they will do a good job even without the trial run.

                 

                Floral Vendor: Maybe I'll ask Laura to drop off the stuff at the hotel and I'll ask my friends to pick them up for the reception decoration. (Wilma) Yes you can do this; please just let your friends know that they will need to be available at the time the florist gets to the hotel to get all the stuff. 

                 

                New Tax: The 11% tax is only on the resort credits and you need to pay in cash or credit card for the tax at the end of your stay after using the credits. I think I will reserve for spa and dolphin swim this week for December 2012 to save on tax.

                Mariachi Band: I got the rate from Carlos Lopez Horta (lohorca@hotmail.com) and they charge 9000 pesos (USD 710) for 10 musicians (45min) or 6300 pesos (USD 498) for 7 musicians (45min). They know the hotel and work there so we don't need to pay day pass. The hotel charges USD 1100 for 8 musicians (60min)!!!
