    Does anyone know if Beach Palace charges for drinks for the wedding receptions? I have heard about this at other resorts but there has been no mention about drinks to me thus far...

     

    The open bar is included..no extra fees.

      Hello ladies, I just wanted to post a quick update on my 05/28 wedding. I started creating a review thread, but realized I have very few pictures to back up my statements, so I will hold off on it until I get the professional ones back. Anyway, the wedding went well, and we LOVED Beach Palace. Below I listed our event sites and vendors incase anyone wants to ask any questions...I would love to help.

       

      Welcome Dinner: Tequila (restaurant)

      (Symbolic) Ceremony: Beach

      Cocktail hour: Ocean side of the south terrace (Superior menu)

      Reception: Lagoon side of the south terrace (French buffet)

      Collection: We originally selected CC Nautical collection, but since it wasn't available on our wedding day, we brought our own decor (and the resort waived the set-up fees).

      Onsite coordinator: Rebeca

      Miami wedding planner: Janessa

      Hair/Make-up: Fernando Fuentes/The Make-up Pros

      Photography: Jonathan & Melissa from del Sol (formerly of La Luna)

      Flowers: Complimentary bridal bouquet and four bridesmaid bouquets through the resort

      Music: We brought our own Bose iPod dock, but it didn't work with the resort's mic and extra speaker, so JSAV let us use theirs for the same price as mic/speaker.

      Honeymoon: Sun Palace

       

       

      Reception set-up before the party began...

       

      bridesmaid flowers (purchased through the resort for $70ish each with their place cards & my real touch flower centerpiece)

      who says the pools close at 8PM?

       

      Again, let me know if you have any questions..I'm an open book. Good luck planning!

            Our ceremony was at 5:00, cocktail started at 6:00, and the reception was from 7:00-10:00. At ten, we transferred to the bar, pool, and hot tub on the other side of the roof until a little after midnight.

             

            We only had 23 guests, so I was worried our reception would be boring...but it wasn't at all.

              Mehganc - OMG I saw your wedding!  I was watching it on the beach.  Me and my husband got married there the following Saturday June 2.  You were beautiful!  I recognized your pictures.  How cool!  Can't wait to see the rest of our pictures.  I posted a few of ours on my page.

                Oh, how funny..maybe you can relay the ceremony to me, because I don't remember much (just from being in the moment, not alcohol..ha). I just checked out your pictures...gorgeous! Who was your coordinator? I'm ready to see my pictures too.

                  I just remember you walking down with a cute young boy.  I noticed your decorations from the pictures and I remembered that was the wedding we watched.  We just got in that day and were exhausted from spending like 3 hours in the offices talking to everyone involved with our wedding (we hadn't even had lunch yet).  It was nice to get down to the beach and watch your wedding so we could have an idea of how it would go.  I didn't remember much of our ceremony either.  I had to watch our DVD.  Our coordinator was Mario.  We saw your coordinator a lot because she was in the same office as Mario.  How did you like the Sun Palace?  We went down there one night for dinner.  I liked the Beach Palace better.  :-)

                    Ha, the cute young boy is my son. My dad works in Iraq and found out a few weeks before the wedding that he wouldn't be able to make it, so he was the natural fill-in.

                     

                    Why did it take three hours in the offices? That does sound exhausting. Was Mario as great as Rebeca?

                     

                    We weren't a huge fan of the Sun Palace either. When we got there, they told us they upgraded our room to an "oceanview" suite, but the oceanview was actually a view of the hotel next door and the restaurant below. When we asked if we could switch to a different room, they sent us to a room with someone in the shower and another room with the door locked from the inside. We ended up calling the Beach Palace to see if we could get our reservation transferred back over there, and apparently, the BP manager called the Sun Palace and told them to do whatever they had to do to make us happy. So they gave us a presidential suite. Don't get me wrong, I thought the staff at SP were great, the room was clean, and the food was better than at BP...but the beach and pool were so much smaller, and since the resort is shaped like a W, it was a lot less private. I guess people choose it over BP because its adults-only.

                      Mehgan...

                      This is great info! I'm getting married next month...7/28! It's sooo close!

                       

                      How did it go with the cocktail hour being after the ceremony? I was thinking of using my cocktail hour as part of the "Welcome" activities and then doing dinner afterward. My fear was that if I did it after the ceremony, I wasn't going to have time to go to the cocktail hour w/my guests b/c we'd be taking photos. Also, what time of day was your ceremony? And finally....what did you think of the complimentary bridal bouquet?

                       

                      Thank you!!

                      Lucy
