    Hi Ladies,

     

    One more question; has anyone used a DJ (a DJ, not just the iPod hookup) from JSAV? We may change our music selection and are considering the DJ/dance floor package so our DJ friend can relax and not have to worry about working the mic. Did you opt for a dance floor and how was it? Our reception is at the pool area. Any feedback on JSAV DJ’s or the dance floor is appreciated.

     

    Thanks fellow BP brides!

    Hi everyone, 

     

    I just started looking at the beach palace as an option but their website information on their wedding packages is so confusing. I'm looking at either the complimentary, nautical or pure package but i'm still not clear on what the difference is (aside from the price haha). I'm thinking we'll have anywhere between 40-50 guests but I noticed that their packages are for 30 people. How much is per extra person? 

     

    Is the reception included with these packages or how much is it extra? 

     

    If anyone has any info that could help me out I would really appreciate it :)

      Hello Brides!

       

      Is anyone else doing a Complimentary package at the Beach Palace?  I'm wondering if anyone has photos to show what the complimentary package looks like on the Beach.  Also, any suggestions on what photographer to use out there???

       

      Happy Planning

       

      :)

        The cost you see for the package is ONLY for the ceremony, not the reception. The reception will cost you $50.00 per person (for dinner buffet), plus any reception table decor, lighting, music, etc...The reception is completely separate, unless you choose to use the the dinner that the ceremony package comes with. All that is is a private dinner for 30 people in one of their restaurants, but you can't do music, dancing, or any of that, so it's not really a "reception".

         

        One perk is they do offer a free reception/private function post ceremony if you get up to 75 room nights booked. If you're expecting 40-50 guests, you should have NO problem getting your 2 hour private function + a cocktail hour free. I do not know how much per person over 30 people it cost though. I would say between $30 and $50 per person for anyone over the 30 person limit. Search around on this site and I'm sure you'll find all the answers to your questions!

         :-)

          Hi Nicole, You've mentioned that the 30 ppl reception that comes with the packages is "private"?! I've always thought it was semi private for some reason..that's great news!! Do you know if we have the option to choose which restaurant? Or if anyone can recommend?? I'm expecting about 30 ppl and I'm not sure if I'll reach the 75 room nights. And if I want to opt for a private reception, what are my options? Any advice will be much appreciated! I can't really seem to get info from BP!! Cheryl

            Upcoming brides what are your plans for the wedding? Times? Cocktail hour? Dinner? Dancing? Location?

             

            I am having wedding at 6 so that I can have sunset pics.

            Cannot decide if I want to do a cocktail hour or not. Time would be 7-8 then dinner at 8-10 then dancing after.Not sure if 8 will seem late for dinner.

             

            For those with complimentary wedding package and renting extra stuff from Zuniga what did you rent? Are any of you making decorations at home and bringing them? I planned to make my own centerpieces and bring them but not sure how that is going to work out.

             

            I am having a welcome cocktail hour the night before for the guests, can't decide if another on wedding day would be a good idea?

            Any suggestions?

             

            I am at unlimited events but things add up anyways, for example if I have cocktail and dinner the wedding day have to pay $60/table per hour over 3 hours which is $240/hr. Found out we have to get birth certificates translated for extra charge. Paying to have my photographers from outside but found out for them to eat at my wedding have to pay for their dinner at $50 each....and on it goes!!


            Life is better with your best friend, that's why I am marrying mine <3

            Hi ladies! I am officially getting married at Beach Palace on May 10, 2014! (We will be there May 7-14, 2014)  Just made the room block with my travel agent and we are expecting about 30-40 people.  Planning to book the skyterrace for ceremony and the Sorth/north (not sure what its called) pool terrace area for the reception.  I currently have the 4:00pm ceremony time reserved as per my travel agents suggestion but I am kinda of doubting this after reading about people dripping sweat at 3:00 or the sun setting at 7:00...  I really want some photos on the beach while there is daylight so I am a bit torn.  I really dont want to be sweating up a storm though!  Has anyone had a 4:00pm (April-July) ceremony yet? How was it?

             

            Thanks!!

              Hi Nursebrooke!

               

              Ceremony- 6pm

              Cocktail Hour- 7pm

              Reception- 8pm-11pm (I dont think 8 is too late for dinner)

               

              I am doing the complimentary package! THis is what i rented from Zuinga

               

              Ceremony- SKy Terrace

              -sashes for inside isle of chairs

              (i didnt want to spend alot on the ceremony- its so beautiful as is and you are only there for 20min)

               

              Reception- South or North Terrace (i forget which one- my cocktail hour is on one side and the reception on the other)

              We are doing one long table. Using the resort table cloths and napkins (white) this is free

              The following is from Zuinga

              -Ghost Chairs

              -Table runner

              -Glass Plate chargers

              -Centerpieces (square low vase with flowers & votives (fake ones - it can get windy) This was expensive ($580 for my centerpieces for only ONE table! granted its a long table 35 people)  They origianlly quoted me $900 ouch. If you can bring your own i say do it! But i think they will charge you a setup fee per table

              -Candles for around pool (fake again- in case windy)

              -Pinata and pinata stick

               

              I am renting from JSAV, the ipod setup including 2 speakers and someone to run the ipod as well as some extra lighting (they say  it gets dark on the south/north terrace)  Is anyone else renting extra lighting? As well as a gobo to project our monogram on the wall.

               

              I am having a welcome cocktail the day we arrive (we are from Canada so staying a week) so this would be 3 nights before the wedding

              I think the cocktail hour on the wedding day is a good way to keep the guests busy while you are doing photos. But totally up to you

               

               

              Hope this helps!

                Hi Shmanderz,

                 

                Your wedding is the same time of year as mine. The sun sets at approx 7:20. The ceremony only takes about 20min so if you did a later ceremony to beat the heat and you would still have time for daylight photos as well as sunset photos which are beautiful.  My ceremony is at 6pm- we are doing first look photos (before the ceremony) to make sure we have enough time for everything.

                But its a personal preference!

                 

                Good luck with your planning!
