Posted an album, hope it shows up.

 

Your pics are amazing!! You are one super gorgeous bride. Did you say you did your own makeup? It looks flawless!
 

Please whenever you have time and are back and settled, give us a review of how everything went! The wedding looks like it was stunning. A couple of questions if you don't mind:


I want the same white draping you had for the ceremony. Did you just request this? Did you have to pay extra at all? (and for the little chandelier?)

 

Where did you get your florals from, and how much did they cost? I can't remember if it was you that said you were going to use Maya Floral... did you have to pay a delivery fee at all? I love those tall centrepieces too

 

I saw you used the Tiffany chairs for the ceremony and the folding ones for your reception. I was hoping to just pay the 1 fee and have them move the chairs to the reception area - I'm guessing that's not the case?

 

Thank you so much for posting these pics! Please also link us whenever you get your professional ones done! You were a super stunning bride :)

I can't view the pics bc of my post count but is the draping the 'old style' they had? When I talked to my WC I asked about it bc someone just posted pics with the white draping, and that's what I wanted. If that's the case then it is free but just has to be requested

Yes, the old style! Cassie above had it too - I'm just confirming haha. Do you know if the chandelier is included too, or if that's extra? 

 

You might be able to see the pics in her gallery. Click on her user name and then gallery

Does anyone know if from the rooftop sky lounge (reception area), you can see the pool area?

 

Our wedding is scheduled for a Friday night and it looks like there's a Drums and Fire show at 9pm in the pool area. Wondering if we'd be able to see it or not from the rooftop

 

Thanks!

Thank you,

 

Mario was my coordinator and when I arrived we had an appt with him the next day to go over everything. Once you get to the Beach Palace they are more willing to work with you. I had told Mario that I wanted the white draping along the brown. The Chandelier was rented through Zuniga. The one from Gama was a little more expensive but bigger. I figured for the 20-30 min i'd just go with the smaller and cheaper one. That was $150.00

My flowers were from Maya, I paid the vendor fee of $500.00 ( they tried switching it to $800.00) but i fought that since they originally had quoted me $500.00) I love flowers and I splurged, my centerpieces were $300.00  and they were worth every penny. They were so beautiful and I used the same ones from my ceremony and then they switched them to my reception. 

I never saw the Maya team, everything was always done, and done beautifully. I'm so thankful since days prior to the wedding I would message Marvin about meeting up, or when i was able to see him and he never responded, but he had everything under control.

I rented the tiffany chairs from Zuniga and I was under the impression that like my flowers, the chairs were going to be switched from ceremony to reception. However that wasn't the case and to be honest I didn't realize until I saw the pictures the next day.  So, for anyone that does rent Tiffany Chairs make sure that they confirm that they will do this. It's kinda of annoying now that I think about it. 

I rented paper lanterns, white silk tablecloths and lighting under the tables from Zuniga. I brought my own pink glitter tablecloth for our sweetheart table and let me tell you, it was worth it. The prices they wanted for me to rent was ridiculous. 

I had my hair done at the spa by Minerva and she did an amazing job. I was going to do my own hair and last minute decided to make an appt and do an up-do. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and it wasn't like the picture it was better but very similar. I used my resort credit on this.

I would suggest that if you have a larger group to assign table seats. I originally had a seating chart for 50 people but people were added at the last minute and I didn't know until they showed up to the welcome dinner the night before so I had Mario print out "reserved" signs, but he didn't make enough for our bridal party so when we did our grand entrance, I had to move people around. That was fixed quickly.

I rented a photo booth and it was a hit. Highly recommend it.

I used PSAV - rented just the equipment and brought a cd with all the songs on there and that worked perfectly. 

 

Before I signed the contract, Beach Palace had told me that when we reached the 75 room nights, our nights were complimentary and that I could use that towards extra wedding services. Later on during the process they had told me that they didn't do that any longer. I'm so thankful to have had a travel Agent that fought this since she had the email and they ended up honoring it. They didn't give me the whole credit since they added taxes and our upgrade on it but it paid for almost the entire wedding. 

 

I truly feel like I had my fairytale wedding, Everyone is still talking about how great it was. I wish I can go back, and I wish it was longer. The hotel did an amazing job and everything was organized beautifully. All future brides, relax, get the basics done and the rest your coordinator will take care of.

 

Welcome dinner Food: Mexican

Cocktail hour: Asian d'hvores  ( BOMB, from what all my guests said)

Wedding Dinner : ( Italian, not going to lie, wasn't my favorite but my guests loved it, especially the fish)

 

GOOD LUCK

@Bella Rios - Thank you for the review and all the tips!! Very helpful, and your wedding sounds like it was amazing!

 

The 75+ room night concerns me because we are counting on that!  I'm going to make sure with our TA too. I also have an email from the Canadian booking guy who sent me that info at the beginning

Hello!!! We are back home after an amazing honeymoon and the wedding week was absolutely perfect.  Our guests are still talking about how it was the most memorable wedding they have ever been to.  The welcome party was also so much fun and in such a beautiful location.  Beach Palace did a fantastic job and I would not change a thing, it was perfect,  I am working on a HUGE review right now but I just wanted to say hi and to post a few pics that have been trickeling in from friends and photos I took of the hotel.  Our professional shots are not back yet but will also post those soon :)

@shmanderz - Yay more pics! Thank you for posting them and can't wait to read your review!! I loved the jerseys you guys wore on the plane down :)

 

Quick question. I saw for your welcome party on the Palenque terrace you had the 2 strings of lights which is what I'd like as well. Were those from Zuniga? Did they charge you a set up fee for both days - the wedding and the welcome party? I'm wondering if I can negotiate to just pay it once

Yup we rented them from Zuniga!  We had to pay the two set up fees due to it being two seperate events on different days but I am sure you could negotiate the price.  Everything has wiggleroom in mexico ;)

 

We got JSAV to knock off the $150 AV specialist charge for the sound system at the welcome party since it was just a basic set up for our guitar player but they ended up sending someone anyway to run the system at no charge which was cool.  We added the sound system three days before we departed so it was awesome of them to give us such a great price with a last minute booking too :)
