    Brebon,

     

    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?

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!

      Hello,

       

      It looks as though everything is going great for you! Happy to hear!

       

      I thought I had reserved the sky terrace with Clarissa, but since she left (which I wasn't told either, until I contacted her a few times and finally this new Rocio Delgado emailed me back saying she had left), I have no idea anymore! Clarissa had told me I get the sky terrace, but when I tried to confirm with Rocio (to make sure we were on the same page), Rocio told me that they can't guarantee reserved ceremony/reception locations until 90 days before the wedding. So confused here, because I thought I had already reserved it! She told me they will write a note in my file that I want the sky terrace, but it can't be guaranteed.

       

      Would you mind sending me Marisol's email? Rocio has been so hard to reach! She doesn't email me back. I have to send her like 5 emails before she finally responds. It's frustrating! Clarissa was wonderful and I am so disappointed she is gone.

       

      Good luck with everything!

        I'm very OCD lol! I legit stalk them and call and email all the time until I get what I want in "writting" to secure locations etc. the guitar play is 390 for 1 hr. I'm using Lilly from Zungia. She sent me a package with decor and prices so I picked from that. I was sent a packet of BP with prices for entertainment and extras... Fireworks, cigar roller, etc... I can email it out if you do not have it. For programs I am doing a program that doubles as a fan. I'm getting these made from etsy. Since its gonna be super hot, it will be nice for guests to have that I thought. I'm also doing maracas at the reception with a saying tied to them..."instead of tapping on your glass, here's a system with Mexican class.. Stand and shake with all your might, to see the groom kiss his bride tonight!". PM me your email address if you need the price lists. The woman I am speaking to is only in charge of May weddings she told me... Lol who knows! It's mzurbia@palaceresorts.com

              Shan,

               

              What did you chose for your appetizer menu during cocktail hour? Thanks for the feedback!! I am so glad you asked this, Kristie! I have been wondering the same thing. I wish there was a build you your own. There are things that sound so good on each one! I know I have read on here that the international and the italian was also good, but can't remember now where. I know I read something about French too, but I don't remember if it was good or bad. I should have been making notes!

              We kept it all Mexican- so we did Mexican for both and both were amazing!! There were some kind of meat ball thing that everyone was raving about for the apps and when my husband and I got to the cocktail hour (only like 30 min late cause we were still taking pics) they were already all gone!!!   You can "pick and choose" if there is a menu you want but you really want "x" from another menu they will add it for you- you just have to ask! :)

               

              And we had the tres leche wedding cake and from what I tasted (only tasted the part that was shoved in my face) it was very moist and delicious! :)
