Definitely will be going down that road. Great to know! Thanks. I doing the complimentary package and using that bouquet for myself (yours looked great)! The lanterns that are lining the aisle for your ceremony, did you bring those with you or rent them from BP? If you rented, do you mind telling me how much extra you had to pay for that? I am torn about the aisle looking a little plain but didn't really want to spend much decorating it for such a short time. I would rather spend that money at the reception .
Thanks! we set up a time with Marvin and confirmed once we got to the resort by emailing him our room # in case. He was in the front foyer (not in the lobby) and it wasn't a problem what so ever! He isn't setting anything up so it wasnt going to be an outside vendor fee. He just dropped the flowers off!
About the lanterns, we had no idea they were going to be there! I guess thats what is included in the complimetary package. We were very happy with the complimentary package. The background is so beautiful that everyone forgets what the actual ceremony set up looks like. The ocean in the background and the lagoon view on the other side is breathtaking. We wanted to spend our money on other things such as a DJ, constellation lights, etc.
Our wedding ceremony was about 15 minutes. It was super short. We had a fake signing because we legally got married before in Vancouver, Canada. We didn't want to have to draw blood, have a few witnessess and pay more than we had too. Our priest or whatever they are called, was excellent. He stood away from us so he wasn;t in any of our pictures. Most marriage commissioners stand behind the bride and groom- so that was great!
Do the complimentary package- it's beautiful!
Spend your money at the reception instead, but not a lot!! save it for another honeymoon down the road thats what we are doing.
I wasn't stressed out at all, minus how my hair would turn out.
Beach Palace is fabulous!! Any other questions, I would be happy to answer! I have the wedding blues now...back to reality!!!!
