It is so nice to finally feel like I have a contact at the resort. Marisol is my planner and has sent me all the info. Kristie, if you want to PM me your email address I will forward you the photos she sent me of private event locations (Palenque Terrace), but I am sure you've seen pictures of it. It's the big, open one with the kinda design/artsy stuff on the cement. Let me know if you want me to send you any of the info she sent me. She only sent info on JSAV, but for the ipod hookups they seem to be decently priced so I think it will be ok. I just emailed them to see the charge for an extra hour and extra speaker (to make 2 speakers). 

     

    Now that the planning is coming along I have emailed Lily at Zuniga about my decor and some rentals. I emailed her Friday morning, but haven't heard anything back. How long does she normal take to respond? Does anyone know?

     

    My travel agent says my room block is good until 60 days out (February 22nd is 60 days until our big day) and we just recently had a rush of bookings. People definitely waited until the last minute. Hang in there!! When I talked to Marisol she said we were at 58 nights (even my whole family hasn't booked yet - they are total procrastinators) so I think we will for sure hit 75 nights. It will be great to get some final numbers and get to work on my welcome bags and figuring everything else out. I emailed Marvin about flowers for my BMs, and boutonnieres for the boys so I am done with that... I think we are finally moving right along. I emailed Marisol to ask about the cost of adding an extra hour to my reception, because if I do a cocktail hour and 3 hour reception I am going over the 3 hour per day max on private events - has anyone heard if they strictly enforce that? or know the cost?

     

    What does Norma charge for makeup? I know it's probably been said, sorry, I couldnt find it. Kristie, what time is your ceremony??

    Oh ok i think i know what your talking about for the  Palenque Terrace,

     

    Lily from Zuinga is good, she does take a few days to respond. If you dont hear back soon just re send your email.

     

    Jenni my ceremony is at 6pm

     

    Norma charges $130 per bridesmaid and $250 fo the bride.

      Norma charges $100 for the brides makeup and $50.00 per bridesmaid. Someone posted her email above.

       

      I am interested in doing the cocktail hour after ceremony + a 3 hour reception. But I was also told there is a 3 hour per day limit. Let me know what your planner tell you on that :-)

       

      My email is nicolew412@gmail.com. I'd really appreciate it if you could email me the private function location pictures you have. I was wanting to do the reception on the sky terrace with pool and bar.

       

      Good luck with everything!

       

      - Nicole

      OH MY PRICES FOR NORMA WAS FOR HAIR AND MAKEUP. I DIDNT GET A QUOTE FOR JUST MAKE UP. SORRY IF I CONFUSED ANYONE

       

      I was told about the 3 hour limit per day. I am doing a cocktail hour and then 3 hour reception (had to pay for the extra hour)

        Yes i was told I have to pay the $90 visitor pass for the hair and make up person n($190 total)

          I havent even thought about the tipping- I feel like i have put Margarita through the ringer with all my questions. But i would be tipping who ever my coordinator is. I think $50 sounds about right

            Hi ladies! I'm considering booking Beach Palace for our wedding this December and I've submitted the "wedding proposal" online last week but have yet to hear back from anyone. The website said someone will contact me within 48 hours but it's been more than a week already! How long did it take for you ladies for someone to contact you regarding reserving a wedding date?? Without knowing the availability, I can't really go ahead to book my trip... Or can I? How did you ladies start this process? I'm so clueless here..... Any advice would be much appreciated!!! Cheryl

              Hi Cheryl,

               

              I remember it took a while for someone to get back to me aswell. I suggest emailing Margarita- she is one of the wedding planners. Just ask her to put you in touch with the correct person.

               

              Margarita Arellano PatiĀ±o <marellano@palaceresorts.com>

               

              I would wait until you have a confirmed date before you book your trip! Make sure you and all your guests book under your wedding block or through one travel agent to ensure you all the reservations count towards your "room nights" the more room nights you have the more free stuff you can get.

               

              Hope this helps!

              Good luck

               

              Kristie

                  Hi Ladies,

                   

                  If anyone has the various menu options for the buffet can you please PM them to me?

                   

                  Also, anyone know if the water at the hotel is okay? Like for teeth brushing and the ice in drinks. Random question I know but just want to ensure we don't get sick!

                   

                  Thanks,

                   

                  Stacie

                    I have them if you want to PM me your email address, Stacie I will forward them to you.

                     

                     

                    I am so mad/disappointed!! I got an email from Marisol yesterday saying that there is an event on my wedding say on the Sky Terrace (where the pool is) at 6 PM and that is right below the Sky Wedding Deck, so she suggested having my wedding on the Beach. I confirmed that location for my ceremony at 6PM TEN MONTHS ago... I insisted on booking it before I would send my deposit. AND I confirmed it again with her Marisol when she called me on January 26th. I replied to her email by forwarding my email from last April that verified I had booked it and told her we re-confirmed it on the phone last month and asked if there was anything that could be done. Anyone have a suggestion or similar experience here??? After we spoke on the phone on January 26th and verified the time and location she immediately sent me an email verifying the details and it had my location as the beach, so when I responded and corrected that and requested the terrace for my reception her response was "I suggest you have your ceremony on the beach and reception in the ballroom" I really really want to have my ceremony on the sky deck, because of the privacy that is why we chose Beach Palace really... and I don't really want to have my reception in a ballroom, we are in Mexico - I want to be outside! I replied to her last night and can't wait to get a response. I'm really bummed. Hopefully they will get this fixed!
