@ I contacted Celeste.  I had contacted someone else originally, but that person never wrote me back and then found celeste's email somewhere.  She did respond but then I asked for a quote on a few things and she hasn't written back - it's been a week since I emailed.  Who have you been in touch with? Maybe I should just give her more time.  Are you working with Zuniga and having a good experience?

 

Has anyone used Grupo Gama for their decor?

@ oh Lily is the one who never wrote me back! Maybe I should try her again? Or, maybe I had the wrong email address.  I'm glad to hear that they matched the price.  Do they do flowers as well or just decor?

@ ok thanks! I will wait a little longer maybe and see if they respond. :)  What are you doing instead of flowers?

@perianjay that sounds awesome.  Can you share with me what vendor you are using for the real touch flowers? I may do that for my rehearsal dinner centerpieces.  Have you seen them in person? I wonder if it would be too risky to do that for bridesmaid bouquets.

@ That is awesome! How are you transporting them all there without them getting crushed? (Or maybe they don't crush... haha) Have you seen them in person? I'm just wondering if they really look like real flowers.

Hi everyone!  First time poster here - I'm getting married at beach palace in about ONE MONTH!  The ceremony will be on the Sky Terrace, the cocktail hour on the Sky Bar South, and the reception on the Palenque Terrace.

 

I'm trying to set up a rehearsal dinner with my WC - but apparently it's $55/person even though we have 60+ room nights (36 attendees) and are purchasing the Metallic Sands Collection.  I've heard of others getting their rehearsal dinner for free...not sure why we don't qualify.  Does anyone have any insight?

 

Also, I know some people were worried about the wind, so thought I'd share what I'm doing to combat it!  I'm using veil weights (bought on Etsy) so my veil doesn't blow around too much.  For the table name cards we're using Wilton ivory tent cards, and then my fiance is taping washers to the inside to weight them down.

 

RIGHT AS I POSTED THIS WE RECEIVED OUR WEDDING PURCHASE ORDER - EEEEEK!

HI @stephygirl

 

Congrats and best of luck next month! I'm sure everything will go well. As for as the fee, my WC told me that all private events are charged $55pp unless you earn free events. With 60+ rooms you earn one 2hour private function. Maybe they applied that to your reception. You have to have 75+ nights to get 3 hours of free events each day. Hope this helps!

 

Oh and I have a question for you - your wedding PO - does it include your vendors as well or do you pay them separately? What vendors did you choose? Thanks.

@@stephygirl welcome to the forum and congrats on your wedding being so close! My events are also on the Palenque Terrace and Sky Bar South. How much extra lighting did you rent? Since I haven't been there, I'm not sure how much additional lighting is needed.

 

As far as the free events, check your contract. Mine says I get unlimited free events with 75+ room nights, but I know there was something free for 60 room nights as well. (I can look at mine tomorrow for you if that would be helpful).

Thanks for the warm welcomes!

 

@@MissAmber26 Okay that makes sense.  They did apply the 2hr private function to the reception.  I wish we had gotten the 75+ room nights, but quite a few of our guests choose to book through Southwest or Apple vacations when they had "holiday specials" rather than through our room block.  Kind of sucks because now we have to pay for not only their dinners at the reception ($55/person), but we also now don't get the extra hour of free event!  Although, overall I'm just happy and thankful they're attending our wedding.

 

As far as vendors - we ended up doing the JSAV Basic Package to play our iPod song list, and Zuniga for additional lighting. Our purchase order includes the fees for both of these vendors.

 

@@Danielle1 congrats on your upcoming wedding as well!  After the wedding I can definitely update you on the lighting situation and overall thoughts on the Sky Bar and Palenque Terrace.  Our ceremony is at 4pm and the cocktail hour is scheduled to be from 5 to 6pm.  I think it will still be light enough during the cocktail hour so we're not doing any additional lighting during that.  I believe the bar has its own lighting, so hopefully that will suffice.

 

The reception lighting is a GREAT question.  So far, we only have the Zuniga set of 4 columns with 2 string lanterns to outline the dance floor. Earlier today I asked my WC for a list of lighting options Zuniga offers, since she has never really provided us with anything regarding lighting!  I happened to find the Zuniga column and string lantern lighting on my own by seeing someone else's photos from the Palenque Terrace.  I'd also be interested in possibly purchasing some under-the-table lighting, and who knows what else based on the options we're given!  Another thing we are doing that may help with the lighting is that once it gets dark out, we're having our best man pass out glow sticks to all our guests.  We just purchased some glow stick necklaces from Amazon for that purpose.

 

I'm having my WC make updates to the purchase order as it is, so I'm sure she'll be more than happy to add $$$ for the additional lighting we may get!  :)

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white.
