        I attended. It was just basically the stuff I already knew. Do you have any specific questions? The only thing that was different for me was my wedding coordinator told me my outside photographers cost to come on the property is the day pass fee and the woman yesterday said $500. I am going to just hang on to my email from my coordinator and hold them to that. It seemed like it was geared towards brides who are undecided still and have maybe not officially booked.

         

        I hung up on the second half because they were talking about a travel agency and I am already all booked with my own.

         

        One bummer was they said if you booked your wedding after the webinar you got a free upgrade on your room which I am already booked so no benefit for me :(

          No Specific questions really. Thats funny about the outside photographer fee. They originally told me it was $500 but my contract says the day pass so clearly i  am happy about that. They really need to be consistent its all so confusing. 

           

          Seems to be only you and I on this thread NurseBrooke. Where did all the Beach Palace brides go?!?!?!

            I know!!! They all disappeared??? And we need some info still. Everytime I get on there are no new posts.

             

            So what kind of decisions have you made? Who is your photographer? Did you pick a package or go with complimentary? How many guests are you having? Our weddings are so close to each other we are on the same timeline :)

              Hey Girls! I'm in May also! I have been a huge slacker with planning. I'm not gonna secure my Dj (DJ Mania) or photographer (Del Sol) until January. I already have 24 rooms booked, and still haven't sent out an invite (they are in the process of being printed). I wish the resort would be up front about pricing etc...it's very annoying. Im expecting about 90 guests. So I need to add on and change a lot of things to make it perfect for us. What part of planning are you guys at?

                    Thanks about all for me!
                     

                    Nursebrooke- what do you have planned?

                    I also picked complimentary, when we broke it down realized that we were spending way too much for decor that I was not in love with anyways. I have been in touch with Zuniga for small things such as tablecloths, chair sashes and some sheers on the ceremony structure. I plan to make some things and bring them down.

                     

                    Guests-I have about 14 booked, expecting about 16 more but I have some complainers and slackers that are not making me very happy. But I decided I have to let it go.

                     

                    Photographer-M&J Photography

                     

                    Flowers-I was going to have Marvin I have a quote from him but am thinking of making my girls those seashell bouquets and just cutting out flowers all together.

                     

                    Dress-ordered I think it comes in Feb., and I am gonna be brave and use my own dress for TTD. I feel like I want it to be my own dress in those photos and I will never wear it again and really my kids are not going to either! It was not too expensive $900 so I am just gonna do it!

                     

                    Bridesmaids-picked out have an appt. Saturday for all of them to get measured and ordered.

                     

                    DJ-we are just paying to have the iPod setup with speakers and will make our own playlists

                     

                    I also want to do OOT bags I have a list of things I plan to put in them but with the slackers I cannot safely start ordering and preparing them.

                     

                    Invites-not done. I am going to make myself and I am hoping to get out in Nov. so maybe I can nail people down and get started with decorations and planning more.

                     

                    I booked Norma to come do my makeup also.

                      Happy planning

                      Hi Melmelly,

                       

                      I am getting married at the Beach Palace on July 12th, 2013.

                       

                      I am going with the photographer who comes with the wedding package, Ocean Photo Studio. I paid for the Pearl Shimmer colin cowie wedding package. It seems a bit pricey at $3,500 just for the ceremony, but you can use your $1,500.00 resort credit toward the package, so it comes out to only $2,000.00. I am worried about my guests booking enough nights to get the reception free, but hopefully I qualify for the free private function and cocktail hour.

                       

                      I was worried about guests wanting to book through a travel agent too, which is why I opted out of doing a room block. I decided to have all my guests book through an outside website, like www.travelocity.com where they can book flight and hotel together. It saves them money!

                       

                      I am unsure about the DJ as well. I think I'm going to just rent the speakers and do an IPOD hookup & have a friend announce first dance, etc...

                       

                      I am booking Zuniga for reception decor. She found decor that matches the Pearl Shimmer package well for the table decor, and I'm doing purple lights under the table and floating candles in the pool. That's about it! Don't want to go too crazy on decor, the prices add up quick.

                       

                      I have bought my dress already. It will be ready December 10th. My bridesmaid dress has been picked and almost all of my bridesmaids have been fitted and bought their dress already as well.

                       

                      What are you doing for bridesmaid flowers? I believe the package comes with flower for bride to hold during ceremony, but are the bridesmaid flowers really expensive?

                       

                      Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have :-)

                       

                      - Nicole
