Cancun Palace Wedding from May 22 2011

Recommended Posts

We had our wedding at the Cancun Palace back in May and am just getting around to posting per a pm request. We had 12 guest join us on our trip. We flew into Cancun on Thursday the 19th and after checking in but prior to going to the room we went and had a meeting with the wedding coordinator Cindy. Communication prior to the face to face meeting was rather poor with very slow response time or no response at all. During the face to face meeting I did see that Cindy had printed out all the emails that I sent her and was keeping track of the things I asked about and had concerns with, so the upside is that she was working and taking care of things and the downside was I had no idea it was being worked on. The sit down meeting lasted 15-20 min and we worked through all of the details of the wedding, decorations, flowers, cake etc. They had a binder with tons of pictures to make your selection from and said anything could be changed from their suggestions. I would say that this all went smoothly and was very easy. We gave her place cards, place card holders, seating chart, maracas and everything else. At that point all we had left to do was be on time on Sunday and get to the vacation portion of our trip.


One of our carry on bags was packed with stuff for the wedding and gift bags for our guest. In our bags we included cups with a lid and straw so that the guest could pack their bags in the morning for the beach/pool and carry their cups with them to use instead of the little cups you get at the bar. It worked well for our guest and made other guest jealous.


We choose the Sapphire Package 1925.00 (1500.00 resort credit applied) 425.00 net

the package came with 36 pictures of their choice so we added the CD with all the negatives 300.00 and also added one extra hour of photography 150.00 after the ceremony to get more family pictures on the beach, in front of the hotel and at dinner. Our wedding was at 6 pm and the beach photos were really nice but if you want sunset pictures you will have to move to the front of the hotel because from the beach the sun gets blocked by the hotel as it is setting.



here are some pics from the wedding

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
