@perianjay oh Lily is the one who never wrote me back! Maybe I should try her again? Or, maybe I had the wrong email address. I'm glad to hear that they matched the price. Do they do flowers as well or just decor?

@Danielle1 Well, i'm using my complimentary bouquet (20 white roses) for my centrepieces. I'm having three guest tables + head table. So i'm going to split them amongst my guest tables and add babys breath (i'm bringing my own mason jars for the vases). For the head table i'm going to use my real touch flowers for the floral accents. I'm having a bouquet of real touch peonies made from a vendor off of Etsy it's costing me a very small portion of the price that it would have cost if I got a bouquet made in Mexico.

@perianjay that sounds awesome. Can you share with me what vendor you are using for the real touch flowers? I may do that for my rehearsal dinner centerpieces. Have you seen them in person? I wonder if it would be too risky to do that for bridesmaid bouquets.

@Danielle1 I'm using them for my bouquet, bridesmaids bouquetsm, boutonnieres, corsages and aisle runners lol.
I've read reviews on the company and as long as they photograph really well I will be happy. It was a HUGE savings for me to go this way and I couldn't justify spending $3-400 on one bouquet alone. I was able to use that money toward other areas of the wedding instead. The guest tables will have real flowers so i'm happy with that.
https://www.etsy.com/shop/StempleShopThis is the vendor I went with. Nathan is the owner and he's been so amazing to work with.

@Danielle1 I haven't seen them in person, but I combed through his reviews on Etsy and he has a ton of 5* reviews. I'm going to try my best to transport them delicately, but they aren't real flowers so i'm sure if they squish a bit, I can poof them back up. They aren't very delicate looking when I look at the photos.. they look like they would hold up well during travel.

Hi everyone! First time poster here - I'm getting married at beach palace in about ONE MONTH! The ceremony will be on the Sky Terrace, the cocktail hour on the Sky Bar South, and the reception on the Palenque Terrace.
I'm trying to set up a rehearsal dinner with my WC - but apparently it's $55/person even though we have 60+ room nights (36 attendees) and are purchasing the Metallic Sands Collection. I've heard of others getting their rehearsal dinner for free...not sure why we don't qualify. Does anyone have any insight?
Also, I know some people were worried about the wind, so thought I'd share what I'm doing to combat it! I'm using veil weights (bought on Etsy) so my veil doesn't blow around too much. For the table name cards we're using Wilton ivory tent cards, and then my fiance is taping washers to the inside to weight them down.
RIGHT AS I POSTED THIS WE RECEIVED OUR WEDDING PURCHASE ORDER - EEEEEK!

Congrats and best of luck next month! I'm sure everything will go well. As for as the fee, my WC told me that all private events are charged $55pp unless you earn free events. With 60+ rooms you earn one 2hour private function. Maybe they applied that to your reception. You have to have 75+ nights to get 3 hours of free events each day. Hope this helps!
Oh and I have a question for you - your wedding PO - does it include your vendors as well or do you pay them separately? What vendors did you choose? Thanks.
