@ yes I did ask her and she said 200... which doesn't seem possible (not that I need to fit 200 comfortably, but I do need space for 100). I just emailed her again to confirm that that includes space for a dance floor, DJ, all of the tables, etc. It's so pretty that I want it to work out, but I'm terrified of getting there and needing to change everything at the last minute.

@@Danielle1 - The sky bar north has a pool as well, and both are open for the day.  At night, they kind of barricade your side off with tables for the buffet, dj, etc.  However, note that the other side of the sky bar WILL be open to the general public.  Also, there is a women's bathroom on the sky bar south side and a men's bathroom on the sky bar north side.  So, there will likely be people sneaking over from the other side to use the bathroom on your event side.  I know there was a wedding on the Sky Bar the same night as our rehearsal dinner - we all partied on the sky bar afterwards and some of us girls snuck over to the other side to use the bathroom over by the wedding.

 

Also, I'm sure your BP coordinator will tell you that 100 to 110 people is fine.  She will probably tell you that you can fit up to 200.  But keep in mind that is probably the MAXIMUM they can fit up there.  Meaning that is a very tightly packed, bare bones space.  If you're looking for a decent-sized dance floor (one where you don't have to break down tables), buffet tables, cake table, DJ, and tables for all your guests - my guess is it would be a very tight space for your group size.  Sorry to stress you out and make you anxious about this, I just want to make sure you consider your options.

 

I just separately asked my husband "do you think you could fit a 110 person wedding on the sky bar at beach palace" and here was his response:

not comfortably?

seems a bit much

you could

just packed

 


@ - i think your lanterns will be perfect!  Totally know what you mean about wanting to allocate most of your budget to the wedding; that's exactly how we felt!

@@stephygirl thanks for all of the info! I think I will wait a bit and see what our final numbers are... I think some people who intend to come won't actually come (is it bad that I wouldn't be too disappointed if we had less people? HA!). So far only 75 have actually booked rooms.  The picture on the link you sent me said 180 with a buffet on the Sky Bar South... however we really like to dance, so I want plenty of room for the dance floor!

@@Danielle1 - sounds like a good plan!  Yeah - I know when we first talked about doing it a lot of people said they wouldn't miss it......and then ended up not being able to make it for one reason or another!  75 is a lot though, especially so far in advance!  You should have a great time!!

@@Danielle1 I'm actually planning on having 90-95 people and we are sticking with the sky bar south!! I have seen some pictures online and from my WC where there are 5-6 tables on each side with a light up dance floor in the middle and it doesn't look too cramped! I definitely do think that a party that large may fit better on the Palenque terrace but we love the space of the sky bar more and plan on partying until 12AM which can't happen on the Palenque terrace. I think you will be fine with your numbers!

@@FutureMrsGarcia - so true about the partying all night thing!  Our reception was from 6 to 10pm on the Palenque, and they abruptly turned off our music at 10pm (although thankfully it was the last song anyway).  We made an announcement on the mic that an after party would be held at the Sky Bar and that everyone should change into their bathing suits to swim!  IT. WAS. AWESOME.  Such a fun after party.

@@stephygirl How late does the sky bar stay open? (And its only one side that is open to the public, right? So, if my reception is on the Sky Bar South, we could just go to the sky bar north when my reception ends?)

@@stephygirl Sounds like sooooo much fun! I can't decide if I'm gonna get in the pool at the end. I have a feeling some will try to push me in lol @@Danielle1 it stays open until 2AM I think! (Can't 100% confirm that) We are having our reception until 12AM because we knew people would wanna keep the party going until AT LEAST then (some will likely go even later lol). I think only one side is open to the public so don't see why you couldn't jump over there when your reception is done!

@@Danielle1 - I think they technically serve drinks there from 9am to 1am.  I think the latest our group stayed out was 1am so I didn't noticed them closing anything on us.  Although the servers did leave around midnight so you'd have to go to the bar to get your own drink.  Also one night they were cleaning the pool and kicked us out of the pool around 10pm.  They don't do that if there's a big group there though!  

 

Yes, only one side open to the public - you can definitely go over to the other side any time you want!

 

@@FutureMrsGarcia - Haha sounds like you have a fun crowd going with you!  By 1am my whole group was exhausted!  People will definitely try to get you in the pool.  They tried to get me to come in but I wanted to wear my dress, and not only did I think chlorine might ruin it, but I was also worried about how long it would take to dry (and I was heading back to the states in 2 days).  I just hung out by the edge of the pool - I could have put my swimsuit on but I wanted to wear my dress as long as possible  :).  I still had such a blast there though!  Honestly the pool at the sky bar is so much fun.  Our whole group went and partied there both the rehearsal dinner night and the wedding reception night!

    • 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. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
