Has anyone brought their own officiant? I'm doing a symbolic wedding and have a good friend who is a certified officiant, but I wasn't sure what Beach Palace thought of that!

My fiancé Dad is a registrar in the UK, and he is doing our symbolic wedding at the beach palace in August!

@Danielle1 - For a symbolic, anyone can do it really.  We had my husband's brother be ours and it was a nice way to include him.  Most of our guests knew that it was a symbolic ceremony but it didn't really take away from it at all

 

We actually had the opposite experience for food haha.  We thought the breakfast buffet was pretty good and Tequila was good in general for an all-inclusive.  Anything Mexican tended to be delicious.  We thought Wok was pretty bad, but we are Asian.  Most of our guests liked the Terazza grill the best with the Italian second.  Everyone also loved the Beach bar for snacks and the burgers they grilled by the pool.  Overall, I think BP has decent all-inclusive food - not 5 star of course but better than some other resorts I"ve been to

 

Cross your fingers for good weather, ladies.  Our wedding turned out fine but we are so lucky we got to use the Palace Elite room as our back up location.  I do wish I had thought more about a back up rain plan.  We had sunshine every other day though so we had a good week at least - when we were leaving, the forecast was predicting rain for almost the entire next week!

Did anyone having a larger wedding have issues with the resort getting full? I think we will have over 100 guests, but I don't want to reserve that many rooms just in case people decide not to come due to cost when it comes down to it (and because it is expensive to reserve that many rooms at once). I was thinking of starting with 30 rooms and then reserving more as people book. However, I don't want the resort to be full - I know it isn't a huge resort! If it is full, can guests stay at Moon Palace? I think I read only 20% of guests can stay at a different resort.

Cross your fingers for good weather, ladies. Our wedding turned out fine but we are so lucky we got to use the Palace Elite room as our back up location. I do wish I had thought more about a back up rain plan. We had sunshine every other day though so we had a good week at least - when we were leaving, the forecast was predicting rain for almost the entire next week!

I am praying for good weather!!! Is the Palace Elite room an "official" rain back up location or you only get it if you ask for it? How many people could it fit?

The ballroom looks horrible but could probably be improved with draping and lighting...I wonder if there is a way to reserve these extra decorations "just in case"?.

@Danielle1 So I'm expecting up to 100 or maybe even more and I just reserved 20 rooms at a time! If my second group of 20 gets booked quickly then I will prob do 10 more. I say your best bet is to reserve more than you expect because you don't want guests trying to book and the place is full! I think you can give back up to 20% of the rooms you don't use (would check that in the contract)

Does anyone know if you can use your complimentary rooms at another Palace Resort? My fiance and I want to go to either Sun Palace or Le Blanc after the wedding to be alone, and I'm hoping we can use some of our complimentary rooms then!  Thanks!

@FutureMrsGarcia - it's not official.  I actually asked Marco specifically about it and he had to ask the Palace member team if it was free.  We were really lucky that they let us use it.  Not sure if other brides have asked about this or not, but it was a great back up room.  We had just under 50 people and that was perfect.  Not sure if they would have been able to comfortably fit more guest tables

 

The ballroom is really really awful.  Draping and lighting would make it a lot nicer but not sure if you can just reserve those without paying.

Does anyone know if I get out of paying the outside vendor fee ($800) if my photographer stays at the hotel with our wedding group? We have a friend who is a photographer, so he may just come with us and take the pictures. However, I don't want to pay for his travel and the $800 fee. Thanks so much for answering all of my questions - I have so many!!

Hi Danielle1 I think you can avoid the $800 vendor fee if you say your photographer is your "friend" and "guest" at the wedding. We are having one of our friends DJ and we are not paying the vendor fee. Hope this helps!

Good to know about the Palace Elite room. I'm just praying and praying for good weather  :)

 

Have you gotten your video from Indigo weddings yet? If so, did you like it overall? I am looking for a videographer and saw you used them.  Thanks!
