    I'm praying all of you ladies still check this thread as I have some questions. I am getting married on 10/19/13 at the palace and selected the royal package. We have a limited budget so we were thinking of going with the semi private dinner at the steak house (we will have 40 guest max) and a cocktail party/dancing at Baja Norte. I was disappointed to hear from my WC that we had to pay an additional $20 per guest for open bar. Is this really necessary? Are there any other options? Is there a bar near by? Also has anyone seen the area for the semi private dinner at the steak house? I'm getting nervous because it takes a week or so to get a reply from the WC. Any information. Or photos would be appreciated Shay

      Hey, I think I posted this on your other thread but here are some pics from the steakhouse terrace. http://www.bestdesti...3/from_uploader

       

      About the Baja Norte, I think I heard that there is a bar right up the stairs so people opted out of the open bar. I think they put up a stink about it but some brides managed to get out of it.  I also heard if you tip the waiters they bring you drinks all night long anyway!  I did not know that renting out the Baja Norte for just the reception (not the dinner) was an option but that's awesome if that's true cause the Baja Norte is by far the prettiest venue option, in my opinon!  Let me know what they say about the open bar!

        You can rent out the Baja Norte for part of your reception or the whole thing (dinner), either way you still have to pay the site fee which is $600.

          bummer the link won't open for me (it says I don't have access). Yeah they are allowing me to do just the reception there but the $20 per person is a bit much for open bar. Especially since it is an all inclusive (and I have guest who don't drink). Hopefully I will receive a reply from the WC. I'll let you know what she says :)

            ugh how annoying.  It's an all-inclusive resort, that makes no sense to pay for an open bar!  If you go the "image gallery" up top I added an album called "RIU Palace Cabo Steakhouse Terrace". You might also be able to find it in "recent photos"

                I opted for the semi-private reception at the Mar de Cortes Steakhouse. There are several locations for private locations. I can email you the checklist, which includes the locations.

                  How was the semi-private set up? Were you right in the middle of everyone else eating their dinner? Did you get to decorate at all like a "real" reception?

                   

                  Any input is greatly appreciated ! Thanks :)

                    That would be great if you can! I am at phoenixlam@live.com! I also wonder about the semi-private set up vs the private set up. I just wonder if I need to spend the extra for the private set up or not. If its worth it,.

                      My renewal ceremony is in August, so I'm not sure whether they stick you in the middle or in a corner. I can email you the checklist, which has the cost, maximums, times & locations for both semi & private receptions.
