So I've read a lot of posts of people asking for various vendor info lately.... thought I'd share what I have.

 

JSAV is the current palace approved DJ.

Tania Tagle is an amazing Cancun make-up artist (not a palace vendor)

some of the buffet options are attached

the palace spa prices

some info about photo-booth rental/cigar rolling...

 

Hope this helps some of you! I know I was certainly very thankful when my WC finally started sending me info!

Laura,

 

Unfortunately I am not able to access these links (because I am new to the site and have not posted 150 times). Would you be willing to e-mail these pdf's to me? I would really appreciate it! Awitt@mclennan.edu

@@esahunnie - Thank you so much for the in depth review! I'm going to take note of all your tips, and make sure to keep all of my paperwork in line. I can't beleive they sent your guests elsewhere. I'd be so so upset by that too. I'm glad your wedding otherwise seems like it went well

 

Do you have any pics of your Pure reception tables? That was my fave of the collections

 

Also, you said your reception went to 11:30. Did you pay extra to this time? I was told they only go til 11

 

Thanks!

 

With Palace resorts if you get over 75 room nights you get "free" events. Otherwise, depending on your room nights you get certain events free like a cocktail or dinner. Otherwise, you have to pay per person for a private reception. I think it's about $80/person if I remember correctly for the cocktail hour and 2 hour reception.

 

We have about 105 room nights so far, so we qualify for the free events and won't have to pay the per person fee. We are paying for upgrades and to lengthen our reception though

 

So the price really ranges, depending on how many guests you have.

Tygrrlily,

 

I am considering booking at this resort, largely because of the free events you can earn for booking 75+ nights. I am wondering, though, if each event is only free for 30 people since that is the number included in most wedding packages? Do you know if we would have to pay the per person fee for each person beyond 30?

No, if you qualify for free events for 75+ room nights, then you don't have to pay extra for the food/drink above 30. I was confused about that before too. You DO have to pay for an extra chair at the wedding ceremony though.  That only includes 30

That is great news, thank you!

Hello Ladies,

 

 I just got back from my dream wedding at Beach Palace. I have no words to describe how wonderful it was, so don't worry about a thing..just enjoy the planning and let it all fall together. I have many people to thank and a long review to write. I'm leaving for my honeymoon saturday then I will get more time to write, so give me a few days:).

 

I'll attach a few pix for you guys.

Hi @@tygrrlily! Sorry for the delay. Yes, Tequila is the buffet restaurant. It's the largest space they have available.

 

I posted a few pics in my gallery too, but hopefully this works and you can view them here.

@@tygrrlily We were asked if we wanted extra sashes on the altar, we specifically said no. To the best of our knowledge, that was the complimentary decor!

 

We'll have to round up some pictures, but here are a couple that can help visualize our decor:

 

Reception:

Candy Bar (with buffet tables in the background):

*The chocolate candy got a little soft. However, the humidity made for the absolutely softest, chewiest Swedish Fish ever!

@misbosox: We went with the Mexican buffet (since we were in Mexico) and all of our guests seemed to absolutely love it! The chicken mole was my favorite.

 

 

Did you bring your own candy or was it supplied by the hotel?

Hi @@tygrrlily! No, there was no extra charge for the white drapery. That complete set up came with the complimentary package.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
