@zoeknight20 - That is a crazy amount! I'd dbl check w/ your wedding coordinator, and even ask your onsite when it comes time.  Palace is super inconsistent with prices and it doesn't hurt to keep asking/digging.  We had a Mariachi band for our cocktail hour and we paid around $535 US for a 4 piece band (2014 prices)

 

@LMichelleB - The Palenque can get dark but it's also quite lovely.  This is from our welcome party there:

We had 2 strings of Chinese lanterns over our dining area.  This pic was taken in mid-December around 6:30pm to give you an idea of lighting.  It does get pretty dark and you'd need to focus your area/lighting because the terrace is HUGE.  I think lighting over the dance floor area would be great too

Hi there, thanks for confirming what you paid for your mariachi band. The new price is crazy!! And all because they changed vendor... I dont know why they would go with a vendor so much higher in price. We have asked that considering we booked back in April 2014 and have been working with the prices they sent us that they honour the original prices. I am not very optimistic that they will agree to this but hope they may offer to help towards the price. We so want to have a mariachi and cant see any alternative at the moment :( xx

@Kari26 That's a loaded question and depends on a lot of factors... We may only have 24 people. In which case, our WC has told us we must have a plated meal. The event itself is "free" because we've reached the required number of rooms nights. However, we still must pay $37 per person for a plated meal even though the event is "free." We've asked if we can do a buffet meal and just pay for the extra 1 person we're missing, but our question has been ignored on three occasions now. 

 

As you can see... I was told something completely different and quotes something different than another bride. It's very difficult to get straight answers from Palace, but everything seems fairly negotiable...and money can buy anything with them.

 

And like Michelle said... the policies are always changing! You should contact a WC for accurate and up-to-date information. My information is all from what the policies were when I started planning about 9 months ago.

@tygrrlily thanks so much for the pic! I was already thinking of getting the 2 strings of lights and the underlights for the tables. Our DJ package includes lighting for the dance floor so hopefully this combo will be enough for us.

 

We were just assigned to our onsite coordinator today! We're getting close :D

Hello to all past ans futur Beach Palace brides,
We're looking to have our wedding at BP in June 2016. We will be a very small group (about 15-20 persons) and we would like to know if there is a minimum persons required to have a private dinner and a private reception at the sky terrace near the pool ?

Does anyone knows the extra charge to have a private event at the sky terrace ? I've had a look to all of the weddings packages but as i understand they only include a dinner in an a la carte restaurant.


 

Has anyone had a wedding or IS having a wedding that is more than 70 people !!! I'm expecting 75-100 people!!! Way more than I thought would want to come! Our wedding in June 4, 2016. Our wedding is booked. All my people have already booked their rooms. Now I need to decide more-or-less vendors so I can start paying on the wedding ASAP. What are your suggestions on photographer? DJ? Any advise??

Dj Discomovil ... I didn't book him in time but read amazing reviews and he was always quick to respond and helpful. But, he's an outside vendor so it'll be the $800 vendor fee plus the new $225 electricity fee. His prices are also great though

 

Latin Asia for flowers!

Speaking of lanterns. I opted to pay for them
And kindly she gave them to me
For free. I remember walking up for our entrance and thinking how beautiful they looked but so far don't have any pictures showing them hahah hopefully someone has a pic of them in their photos

@LauraM isn't the new electricity fee ridiculous? I haven't booked my DJ yet and now with this fee plus the vendor fee, it's making it so expensive! Plus, J&S just increased their 2015 prices 

 

@calgarybride2015 you got free lanterns? You're so lucky!

@Wafflesmom  YES! The fee is absolutely outrageous! It's just their way of forcing you to use a DJ that they get a cut of the $$ from. Is J&S the same as JSAV? I can't even afford them! They're more expensive than the outside vendors, even with the 800+250 fees! I had to downgrade to PSAV... I'm concerned about their quality and their broken English (very apparent in email communications) but I'm hoping for the best...
