I did however bring my own decorations too as you can see from the pics that del sol posted. By the way, del sol was sooooo amazing and next weekend is our AHR where we will be showing off all of their hugely talented gift of photography. Just book them, as those pictures are priceless and will be the one thing that remains after that very special day. Wilma was amazing and so helpful. Don't stress it ladies, it was picture perfect! My only complaint would be with dj doremixx who showed up 2 hours late! Luckily, Wilma had the resort dj cover until then, and I didn't notice until she told me. Doremixx never apologized nor offered an explanation. They didn't even come up to say hello! Oh well, I didn't let it bother me, but I wouldn't be booking them.
    Otherwise, the Playacar Palace was spectacular: small, quaint, with excellent service! All of my guests were really impressed!
    I did my hair and makeup with styling trio and they were awesome! I totally recommend them!
    Good luck ladies!

     

    Hola Lola2012,

     

    Just wanted to send you a huge thanks for your kind words and for trusting our creative vision!!! You looked absolutely stunning on your day and we wish you both many years of happiness and laughter.

     

    All the best,

    Del Sol Team

        I find the information from the hotel purposely vague and confusing. I’m having a very hard time trying to figure out what our wedding costs would be. We are on a very tight budget and can’t book anything until we have an idea of what we are getting into.

         

        We would like the following (complementary package + services):

         

        • We are having a very short symbolic ceremony, officiated by my brother. Does not have to be at the beach, but it should have music.
        • A cocktail party, does not have to be private, could be at the bar.
        • Dinner (Anywhere)
        • Music and dancing (Either DJ or IPOD)
        • Mariachi Band
        •  

        It would be fantastic (I would be eternally grateful), if those of you who got married recently could give us 2013 brides an idea of what you actually paid.

         

        Also, if you had dinner, how long did it take? If you had dancing, how long did it last? If you had private functions where you charged for the time over the 2-3 hours?

        Thank you soooo much!

          Hey ladies!  Is anyone on here getting married the weekend of Sept 28-30?  If so, I'll be down there scoping out the resort that weekend!!  My roommate-for-life and I finally got confirmed to meet with Wilma and the decor and music vendors during our site visit at the end of this month so we can relax and know everything is in good hands for our wedding in Jan 2013.  I still don't know exactly where we're having our ceremony, receptions, or private events for 80-100 people - so I plan on taking a bajillion pictures and notes.  If there's anything you'd like me to find out or specifically take a picture of, please lemme know!  I'm so excited to finally visualize how this is going to come together. 

           

          Pacificarol and Andrea80 - I'm SO happy to hear you guys have large wedding groups and can't wait to hear all about your weddings and what you decide to do for your decor, music, guests, etc.

          • Locations - still waiting for confirmations of what's available
          • Flowers - Not going crazy here since we can't take anything home with us.. going to use Parasols for my maids instead of flowers.
          • Decor - I'm a DIYer so I'm gonna be getting creative here.  Want to use a bunch of chinese lanterns and papel picados (the mexican paper cutouts), blue sea glass and other fun stuff. 
          • Fun and Festive - I really really really really really wanted to get a Tequila Donkey but my man said no dice because then no one would remember our wedding haha.  If you don't know what they are, please google it for a good laugh.

           

          Okay that's it for now.. PLEASE SHARE!!!!!!!

              Could you find out if there is a fee for the wedding guests over the 30ppl limit? I will have 75+ room nights so I will have unlimited private events, but I'm not sure if I will be charged extra for going past the 30 guest maximum for the wedding ceremony/ reception. Also will I have to pay the fee to make my reception a private event? Lastly could you take pictures of the south and north solarium as well as the Cielo bar?? Thanks soooo much!!! I'm so lucky to have found this site!

                Hi KJ,

                 

                Here go my details so far. I'll make sure to report back after my Dec wedding.

                 

                • wedding date: Dec 10
                • ~ # of guests attending - approx. 80 to 90
                • Planning an at home reception? we had a small wedding at home with 20 ppl
                • wedding website - have you created one for your guests?
                • invites - did you do this?  some do, some don't - any pics? I ended up getting mine at minted. Really affordable and creative: www.minted.com They even have some with a Mexican theme
                • what themes are you doing (if any): no theme I think...will just play off the location (beach)
                • wedding colors: using white, blush pink, plum and silver. Groom is wearing charcoal gray linen pants with a white linen shirt.
                • # of peeps in the wedding party and what they are wearing: only 2 flowergirls and they will hopefully be wearing off-white raw cotton dresses
                • types of private events: welcome dinner, a kids party and a morning-after brunch
                • locations for your ceremony, receptions, private events: not sure yet but the wedding reception will be indoors and the ceremony on the beach (only option that can accommodate our size)
                • flowers, bouts, etc.: don't know yet. Have contacted Zuniga many times but have never heard back. Any suggestions??
                • decor: not sure yet. probably just simple white linens. Would love to have lots of candles but not sure if I can. For ceremony will buy some paper parasols and fans.
                • Anything else fun and festive?

                  Does anyone have pictures of an actual Colin Cowie wedding?  We're getting married at Playacar summer of 2013 (appx 50 guests) and would love any other advice Palace brides may have :)

                   

                  Thank you!!

                    Good to know that Wilma is continuing to make people very happy.

                     

                    We were thinking about going back to PP for our one year in March 2013, but now that we are expecting, prob not.

                    Thank goodness for planning....

                    Best of Luck to All
