Ok, great thanks! That's what I thought, that there would be no extra charge on top of the day pass.  I did email my wedding coordinator and I'm just waiting to hear back from her so she can confirm.  I can't imagine having to pay for the day pass then pay again for cocktail and dinner.

Hi everyone. Just wanted to pass on that I have been in communication with Elizabeth today so she's definitely still around.

 

She also shared information for another vendor for photography and videography...Dream Art Photography just in case anyone is still looking.

Oh my gosh, 19 hours and 15 minutes until we leave for the airport!!! (Not that I am counting or anything! lol). We have to be at the airport at 4:00am which is crazy but we have a direct flight so we land in Cancun in the early afternoon which is awesome :)

These last few days have been pretty stressful and I am SO ready to get to Mexico.

 

I had some last minute changes and my wedding planner has been pretty slow responding which was really frustrating but he got back to me today and apologized and said they have been super busy with weddings. He sent me the all-inclusive package wine lists and the upgraded wine lists if anyone is interested (PM me and I can email to you). A lot of people in my group are big wine drinkers so everyone wanted to see the selection beforehand!

 

I also added a last minute sound system from JSAV for the Welcome Dinner tomorrow night on the Palenque Terrace from 7:00pm-10:00pm. We have a musician friend coming over from Isla Mujeres and he was just going to play an acoustic guitar set but we decided to rent a speaker, amp, and microphone set up plus the function to attach the iPod music to the speakers when he is not playing. They originally wanted $450 which was crazy but I got them to remove the AV Tech Specialist because we didn’t need any help with the system and it dropped the price to $290 after taxes and set up fees. I thought I would share with you all if you are looking for a price break on your rental from them...if you don’t think you need the person there to help run the system it can be a good money saver!

 

Packing has been a bit of a nightmare but I think we are going to make it work.  If anyone is from Canada and is flying Sunwing it is definitely worth it to upgrade to Elite Plus (The bride and groom get a free upgrade if there is availability!).  In the regular seats you are only allowed 20kg checked luggage which is only about 44lbs!  (Not very much considering every additional kg that you are overweight costs an additional $20 and that can add up very fast!!) But in the Elite Plus seats you are allowed 30kg total which is almost 66lbs!

Another good tip with Sunwing is when booking with a group, for every 10 people booked you get 1 additional 20kg checked bag.  You have to contact Sunwing and get it added onto you file and they send you a voucher because you cannot add this on at the check in counter.  This has been a life saver because we have all the extra wedding stuff packed into the free extra 20kg bag and then anything left over is packed in our regular checked bag which has the extra 10kg weight due to the Elite Plus upgrade.

I know that probably sounds super confusing but anyone flying with Sunwing will understand J

 

Anyways, if anyone has any questions about the hotel, PM me and let me know and I can respond to them when I get home!  Our wedding date is May 10 and our group departs Beach Palace on May 14th.  Me and my fiancé are Honeymooning on Isla Mujeres but I will be home and back online May 21 J

 

Happy planning to you all!!

-Amanda

@shmanderz:

 

If you have big wine drinkers in your group, I'd recommend booking the wine tasting with resort credits (it happens on Tuesday evenings in the Wok restaurant). It is limited to 10 individuals, though when we checked in for our wedding, all 10 spots were open. We used our resort credits to book all 10 spots (and got them to okay a couple extra spots since everyone was from one group), then just had them transfer it to the respective room when people checked in.

 

We basically had a private wine tasting for a group of 11. It was a great time!

Hi Everyone,

 

After months of reading reviews on here about Beach Palace weddings, we have decided to book our wedding here! So thanks to everyone who has posted wedding reviews / tips etc.

 

We are situated in UK so we will not get to visit Beach Palace beforehand but reading everyones reviews, it sounds like the Beach Palace is perfect for a wedding. We will book in April for a wedding at the end of May 2015 - is anyone else planning the Beach Palace for their 2015 wedding?

 

Looking forward to reading more reviews and hopefully posting on here when we have our wedding booked.

Hi

 

We have just booked our wedding here too, for the end of August 2015. How is your planning going?

Have you heard from a wedding planner yet?

 

Michelle

@@Linds1204 - Please post when you get your professional pics! Can't wait to see them

 

Also, I noticed for your ceremony at the Sky deck that you had the old style draping. Did you have to pay extra for that, or were they willing to change it in lieu of the current complimentary ceremony decor? I love the old style so much more

 

Thanks!
