Hi Ladies!


I have a few last minute questions (ahh! almost a month away!) probably for brides who have already visited the property?

 

I know I've seen contact information on here somewhere for hair/make-up appointments...is that the same contact as the spa? I've been to a few Palace Resorts in the past and they seemed to have differentiated between the Salon and the Spa. I think there is a $300 limit per room at the Spa....so does this count towards hair and make-up or just services like massages? What about mani's/pedis?

 

Any thoughts on whether or not a trial run for hair/make-up is necessary?

 

My FI swears that he's seen pictures of the Moon Palace (Grand Section) where they have rooms with private pool access (ground level rooms where you can just walk into the pool straight off your patio. Can anyone confirm if this is true? I'm thinking this was probably at another Palace Resort.

 

In a few earlier posts on the 2012 forum, brides suggested bringing your own speakers...I'm trying to decide between that and hiring a dj (a lot of our guests are older, so we are going to stick to the traditional dances and speeches, and then the younger crowd is going to head to the disco for the real dancing).  If you don't pay for anything for the reception, do you still get a tech guy? Do they still provide a microphone? I'm wondering if we tipped a tech guy (assuming they provide one) if he'd run our playlists for us. If we did bring our own system, does anyone know if the internet at the terraces (Tucan or Venado most likely) get good enough internet reception to stream something like Pandora?

 

Also, has anyone on here been to the MP lately? Any updates on whether or not the construction is done? Does this make the Sunrise section the "newest" now? Is that still the only section with hammocks on the patios?

 

Sorry for all the questions. I've read almost every post I can find on this website, so hope I haven't repeated too many things that have already been discussed. As always, THANK YOU GIRLS!!!

What is everyone doing for their reception table centerpieces? I'm nervous to fly with a lot of breakable glass and would rather spend money on entertainment than flowers since its so pretty there anyways. We will probably be in either the tucan or venado terrace

I used my bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces and bought blumeboxes and decorated them- here is a pic! No glass for me! :)

Pretty! My sister is my only bridesmaid so I wouldn't have enough bouquets :( how did the runners turn out? Where did u get them? Are those on the chairs too? I like that idea but my mom thought with the round table it might be weird bc someone would have to eat on the runner? I didn't think it would matter...

Hey Everyone,

 

I've been searching everywhere trying to find something for the groomsman to wear. We didn't want a jacket for him. We ordered my FI's suite from studiosuites.com and were very happy with it, and this place is a little more expensive, but the quality looks great and they have a ton of options of the guys: http://www.islandimporter.com/Weddings/ If you "like" them on Facebook you also get free ground shipping! I found this coupon code online and haven't had a chance to try to see if it works, but here it is: FB6412

 

I think my FI might actually order the drawstring pants for our welcome dinner, they look comfy!

 

Hope this helps someone out!

 

 

Short sleeve = $35

I'm so glad someone else is doing the flower girl pom pom thing! I actually saw some at Michael's randomly and thought it was such a cute idea. I was having problems finding something that I liked for the girls to carry the flower petals in, and they are so young, I wasn't sure if they'd even get the idea about throwing the petals. I think I got mine for about $4 each? But they are solid color, not the multi one like you found, and have a much shorter ribbon. Cute stuff!
