Are you doing the complimentary package? I'm thinking maybe they contacted me so soon because I'm paying so much for the Pearl Shimmer package, and it was paid upfront. I don't know though, just a guess. I started planning in September 2012, so I never worked with the Miami office at all.

        I did email with Clarissa to get my contract signed. And i did hear from Margartia briefly but i am waiting patiently until my 3 months out date. Yes i am doing Complimentry so maybe you are right. I just emailed Clarissa for the flower cake and food menus so hopefully she will get back to me.

        THanks for the info!

          I ordered blumeboxes and used the bridesmaids bouquets for centerpieces.  Got my money worth on those bouquets with Marvin! :)

            I am only having 2 bridesmaids stand up there, just got to be too many, if i have her then i need to have her and her... so just my sisters. So I think i will just use their bouquets on our sweetheart table or whatever and i was thinking about half tables just the small square vase of flowers and other half i really like the idea of just a fishbowl with a goldfish... i dont want any rocks or anything in there, just water and fish :)


            i do think i want to do those lights under the table so that gives them a little extra umph too. nothing too big here either. Planning on getting in contact with Zuniga soon, just wasn't sure if i should go ahead and do that now or wait until i am in contact with my WC.

              My wedding coordinator, Clarissa Arzola, doesn't work for Palace Resort's anymore :-(


              I just received an email from Rocio Lizbeth Rioja Delgado, who seems to be my new wedding coordinator. I'm a little dissappointed. Clarissa has been so wonderful throughout this whole process, always responding to my emails right away. I also made special arrangements with her on a few things. I'm hoping notes were taken on my wedding requests, etc...


              I feel like I'm starting over.


              Anyone been in contact with Rocio Delgado? I hope she is just as good as Clarissa was.

                Hey Ladies. I've been super busy and not on the site. As I have said before, my wedding is May 24, 2013...slowly approaching. As usual, I was not informed that Clarissa left. The disorganization makes me crazy!! I am now in contact with Marisol. She has been very helpful! I was able to secure the sky terrace for my ceremony and the ballroom for my reception, I think AC will be necessary. I am getting married via a symbolic ceremony at 4, having cocktail hr on the beach from 4:30-6, and having my reception from 6-10:30 in the ballroom. I am bringing in DJ mania, DEl Sol Photography, and Norma from MAC for hair and makeup. I have 8 bridesmaids plus my mom, that they are also doing.  I currently have 40 rooms booked. We are expecting appx  100 people. RSVP's are due back to me by March 1st. I'm doing the complimentary package. I'm adding aisle bows to the chairs and flowers at the front for the ceremony. I have chosen the guitar player they offer to play at cocktail hour.  For the reception, I am having the draping on the ceilings, flowers, and chair bows. I also hired the cigar roller they provide to be used as a favor for my guests. I have bought a few signs, thumb print guest book tree, ceremony stuff, ring barer and flower girl stuff and some reception decor on ETSY to be used at the ceremony and reception. My colors are pink, aqua, and white. We have chosen the international 2 menu for cocktail hr and the mexican feast for the buffet dinner. I love funfetti, so I'm bringing boxed mixes for the Chef's to make as my "cake". Everyone says everything falls into place once your there so I hope thats true. Its very scary to only talk via the phone or email with your "wedding planner". We are getting our stay for free bc of the number of rooms we have booked so far. We are going to be spending appx $10,000 on everything for the wedding including fee's, vendors, extra time, flowers, hair and makeup, bridal party gifts etc...I heard they don't usually make you pay extra set up or extra time fee's once your there...hopefully thats true. SO those are my current plans and where I am at. I have sent pics to Lilly at Zungia to show her what look I am going for and what flowers I like. I only can pray it looks the same! Good luck to everyone in the planning process!

                  My coordinator has been changed 3x, but they seem to be on top of everything...

                    You are stressing me out ;) Ha! Why are you so much further ahead of me and my wedding is one month earlier? You're making me feel like I need to get in gear! No one from BP has contacted me and my TA says that is totally normal. The ONLY thing I have done is secured the Sky Terrace for my ceremony, and I am starting to worry that might even have fallen through with the closing of the Miami office. I am hoping that request got forwarded on. How have you gotten so much accomplished and when did someone contact you? Do you think I need to be reaching out to someone? Through this thread I do have all the menu choices and have started to think about cake, menus, cocktail hours and stuff, but I certainly havent planned anything with the resort. My ceremony is at 6 (Sky Terrace). I am thinking cocktail hour 630-730 location TBD (do you mind me asking how much they are charging for the guitar player for that?), reception 730-1030 or however late they will actually let us go outside (hopefully later than 1030) on one of the terraces, i am leaning towards renting my own speakers and bringing an ipod, i do have a long list of rentals i want from zuniga - like under table lighting, lights, lounge furniture, centerpieces, etc. Are you having Zuniga do your flowers and/or centerpieces? I have been in slight contact with Marvin for flowers. I am doing the complimentary package as well. I was thinking about adding the chair sashes, but if they add the lanterns in the aisle like the pictures added by JKwedding, then I really dont think I want to bother. I am trying to keep ceremony costs to a minimum to spend that money on the reception instead. We are expecting about 60 people and will have free events too, which will be helpful for $ saving. Our room block expires Feb 15, so I should have a final head count right around that time, then I can get to work on my welcome bags!


                    Is anyone doing programs for the ceremony? Do we know what the cost is for them to set those on the chairs before the ceremony?
