Hi Everyone,

 

My name is Stacie and Iâ€m getting married at Beach Palace Cancun on August 10, 2013. I am likely the 1,000th Beach Palace bride asking the same questions as the previous 999 Beach Palace brides :). Any help/answers/tips/advice is greatly appreciated!!!

 

Some of my details:

 

  • Second wedding for us both
  • Target guest count is 30 (so we can have a reception)
  • Still debating on Complimentary Collection vs. Pearl Shimmer
  • I like the Photography Package A, but weâ€re thinking of upgrading to the Deluxe so we can get coverage before the ceremony and at the reception +  the CD w/images
  • Still debating on the DJ; go with resort offered DJ or bring an iPod and let our friend (who is a DJ) work the mic
  • Anyone know what kind of special rates are offered to the B&G for their actual stay (not the site visit)?

Hi Erika,

 

Thanks soo much for your feedback and glad you liked the pics!!!

 

We are actually the photographers that captured Kirsten's wedding but I can tell you that her hair and makeup was done by a family member.

 

If you bring pictures of what you have in mind, usually the gals at the Spa of the hotel do a great job!!! If not, send me a PM and I would be happy to recommend you a few great makeup artists in the area.

 

Best wishes!!!

Hi Everyone,

 

Iâ€m an August 10, 2013 BP bride. I apologize in advance for asking the same questions as the previous BP brides :). I see a lot of references to booking with a TA. Whatâ€s the advantage to booking with a TA vs. directly with BP? If you book with a TA do you still get the resort credit?

 

Here are our details so far:

 

  • Second wedding for us both
  • Booked CC for the time being, may upgrade to Pearl Shimmer or Pure depending on how many guests RSVP
  • Iâ€ve read so many wonderful things about BP and BPD weddings, only negative that seems to be recurring theme is the DJ. Weâ€re likely going to book 4 hours for the CD/iPod + lighting extras and have our friend (who is a DJ) work the mic

 

Thanks,

 

Stacie

We used a TA, and I'm SO glad we did since it just made it all easier on us and our guests.  Any guests that book through your TA count towards the credits, but if you have anyone who books elsewhere, it doesn't count.  I think it saved a lot of stress of people not contacting me about things, and I had a lot of delays in communication while working directly with BP that were a minor hassle for me, but if all of my guests went through that per my suggestion to book through them, I would have felt really bad.

 

We had some guests with some room issues when they first arrived that were all taken care of by our TA. We also had four different guests who had their flights get canceled on the way home, so since they had a TA, she took care of getting them on new flights and everything, so they didn't have to worry about it. 

 

And not to mention when I was having a difficult time getting answers prior to signing the contract and getting everything confirmed, our TA bugged BP, and we got answers immediately!  It's good to have someone outside of the hotel on your side.   :)

Has anyone used the following and what are your thoughts:

 

  • DJ PSAV
  • Soloist/violinist; do you just get one violinist, is it loud enough to hear when youâ€re walking down the aisle?
  • Fireworks after the ceremony
