I am FINALLY in contact with someone from Cancun Palace directly and she has been a GREAT help! The first thing she told me was that it was $200 to set up the ceremony if you bring your own decorations and $100 a table for the set up of dinner. Although, she did tell me that included doing everything from name tags, wedding favors, centerpieces, chair bows etc.... Since I was just going to bring my own linens and centerpieces, I asked her if there was a way to discount that price OR if I can just have my own people set up.... She didnâ€™t answer me on us setting up ourselves but she did say she would see if we could get a lower set up fee. I feel for you girls that bought your own stuff already, as I did, cause now I think Iâ€™m going to HAVE to let Zuniga do it all for me.
Iâ€™m doing the complementary package for the ceremony . Remember ladies, they charge you like $2,300 JUST for the ceremony. None of that stuff goes into the dinner/reception, so I ask you, is it worth that much money for maybe 30min!?
I also found out that the Dj they use is jsav productions.... The ipod/speaker set up for 2 hours is $395. This does not come with anyone to do announcements etc. The next step up is Dj service for 2 hours for $1,00 OR $1,495 for 4 hours.
Personally what we are doing is Mariachi for the cocktail hour, $480 and then the ipod set up for the dinner, which is 2 hours..... Since they donâ€™t allow the party to go past 11, we arenâ€™t doing a "reception" at the resort, but going to a club after dinner! Should be fun!
Any ways, just wanted to let you guys know what I found out. Iâ€™m in direct contact getting all the details ironed out so if anyone has a question, feel free to let me know and Iâ€™ll try to help!
