    Hi Everyone,

     

    I'm planning a wedding for end of this year at Cancun Palace and would like some answers to a few questions about their "group benifits"

     

    We're having more than 35 guests at our wedding which can't be included in the wedding package for reception dinner. Their website says if this is the case then wedding couple must rent a private function. So if we have people staying 60 nights we get "one private function" and 75 nights "unlimited private functions".  Are these functions referring to the reception function, and if so what is the difference between one and unlimited.  Website also states that one have to sign a group contract.  Is this done directly through the hotel or with TA??

     

    If anyone have answers, please reply!! Thanks!

      Hi there! I am getting married at Playacar Palace in January 2012. The private function that you would get could be used for your reception or a welcome dinner or a rehearsal dinner society and so on - whichever one you choose. The unlimited private functions, you wouldn't have to choose - you could have a private event every night if you wanted to :) As far as the group contract goes, I would contact your TA since you said you had one. My TA is the one who I will be going through to do all of my bookings. Good luck, and congratulations!!!

        With 35 guests, you should easily reach the 75 room nights. Your TA should arrange the group contract that is signed with Palace resorts, you do it direct only if you're not using a TA.

          Thanks so much for answering my questions!

           

          Mochamakes3> Do you know how much the cost for decorating the ceremony alone is such that it  looks like one of the wedding collections?  I'm interested in the complimentary package, but really like how they decorate the ceremony sites for the collections as seen in pictures.

            Helen,  I friended a fellow bride on FB who just got married at Playacar Palace using their comp package.  Her pic is below.  It's all white drapery with white avant-garde chairs (she brought lilac chair bows with her)  I am bringing my own photographer (I lucked out that my best friend is an amazing photog) so I don't need a photography package, could care less about fireworks (which are really just like sparklers and firecrackers in the background), and the videographer can be purchased for around $350 I think - and you can even use your Vacation $$ to pay for that.  When all was said and done, it was pretty much like I was going to pay about 2k for decorations.  I scoped around on here and decided to bring my own tulle chair sashes - I actually found 40 of them (aqua) for FREE on the sashsharing freecycle forum - but you can also get rent them online for about a dollar a piece and just pack them and bring them to the resort.  I am going to do the same with any other decorations for the ceremony as well!

              Are you looking for a beach or gazebo ceremony? I purchased 60 chair sashes for about $50 and I was told it would cost $55 to have MP set up. Or free setup if you have a friend do it for you. Otherwise, I was told $14-$30 per item rented from MP.
