        Hi! Can you please let me know how much the bamboo structures with lanterns were? I was thinking of doing those, they look amazing!

         

        Thank you!

Once those are packed and I know I have it all together I think I will start to feel a little more organized. Our wedding is Friday, April 26th. I am doing centerpieces, under table lights, bamboo structures with lanterns, and a dance floor from Zuniga (reception is on the beach), I'm not doing any extra ceremony decor really (sky terrace), and I am just using Ipod and Jambox for cocktail hour (Infinity Terrace). We have about 60 guests and our ceremony is at 5:30, cocktail hour 6:30 and reception 7:30... I know they say outside events are to end at 10, but any past Palace Brides have experience with how strict they were on this? I am hoping they at least let us to until 10:30, 11 would be great! I rented Ipod dock and 2 speakers from JSAV for the reception and paid for 3 hours just in case we can go an extra hour. I am using the complimentary bouquet and boutonniere for me and the groom, but I got bridesmaids & groomsmen's from Marvin @ Maya Floral. He was quick to respond every time and the prices were pretty reasonable. I will give a full review in a few short weeks!! I just got my onsite coordinator last week (Mario) but haven't really had contact. I can't believe the time is already here!

         

        Is everyone carrying their dress on the plane? How are you handling that?

          Hi!

           

          Can you please let me know how much the bamboo structures with lanterns were? I was thinking of doing the basic lighting package, but those look so beautiful!

           

          Thank you!

          Does anyone have any advice in regards to the room blocks?  Did you use a travel agent or did you set up your room block directly with the resort?

           

          Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

          Hey Jenpangi!
          My wedding is the day after yours so we will definitely be crossing paths!! :)

          That is strange that they are asking for such a huge deposit!  I was able to reserve a block of 30 rooms with just a $200/per person deposit for myself and my fiance.  (We used a travel agent located here in Calgary). The reservation block is valid for 90s days and my guests have that timeframe to make their deposits to secure their rooms. We were also able to pay with credit card.  Maybe try a differeny travel agency because $5000 deposit and payment by cheque only is crazy!

              OMG, I am sooo excited for you! I'm about 3 months away from mine and feeling so overwhelmed. I feel like there's still soo much to do. And still people that need to book :/ Did you have a lot of last minute bookers? 60 guests is awesome, big wedding for a destination wedding! How much was all your decor? I'm having under table lights, candles in pool, and pretty table decor/center pieces. It's running me about $1,200.00. I was thinking of adding lanterns too. I'm doing the same music wise, for the reception (IPOD dock + 2 speakers and someone running the IPOD). So no DJ? I don't think I'll do a DJ either. I am doing an IPOD and 1 speaker for cocktail party. What's a jambox? I'm carrying my dress on the plane. I heard it isn't too bad. I'm with United Airlines, hopefully they have a closet or something I can hang it in. I can't wait to hear your review and see all your pictures! Good luck!!

              I'm wondering if anyone planned a site visit to Beach Palace. I sent them a message through their website but they never got back to me. Is there a better way to get a hold of them to book that?
