    Hi Everyone,


    I have been reading through posts for a while now and thought I should take the plunge and introduce myself.  I am going to be getting married in 2013, no date chosen yet or location.  There is so much information to read but this site has really helped me narrow down my choices.  So far my favorites are the Sun Palace and Playacar Palace resorts and the Azul Sensatori resorts.  The Dream resorts seem nice too.  The one request my fiance has is that our ceremony needs to be in a private area which is why I really like the Sun Palace which has the sky terrace. 


    Any recommendations are welcomed and thanks to everyone who has put so much work into their posts.  It is so helpful.

    Hi, welcome and congrats!


    I just wanted to let you know- Sun Palace does not have a sky terrace- that is where I am getting married.


    You are thinking of Beach Palace! :)


    Palace resorts offer great perks for wedding packages if you have a large group coming- I have 43 people and my reception and cocktail hour are free! :)


    But communication with the Miami office (who you will be in contact with until 30-90 days before your wedding- after that, you will talk with your on-site wedding coordinator in Mexico) can be hard for some people if they do not have an attentive contact person.  I have Janessa in Miami and she is great!! I think she is for Sun and Beach! She emails me back within a few hours of my emails!


    Best advice- get a good Travel agent who can help you with booking so you do not have to directly work with Palace Resorts to book the hotel!  It will save you TONS of headaches! :)


    Good Luck and happy planning! :)

     to another fellow Canadian bride!!! Congrats on your engagment and on picking a DW!


    I am getting married at Azul Sensatori, and I know they have a sky deck for private ceremonies. The Azul Sensatori thread is huge, but has a ton of useful information from past and present brides! http://www.bestdesti...rides-post-here If you have any specifc questions about the AS, feel free to PM me :)


    I concur with shan0487- find a great TA! I found one at Flight Centre- I've used them forever, and they have TA's that just do destination weddings. TAs are lifesavers if you've never planned a destination event, which the majority of us haven't!


    You should also join the Canadian brides thread... http://www.bestdesti...canadian-brides


    Good luck with your planning!

      Now Jade also has a private Pergola that is absolutely beautiful.  The privacy of the reception was a huge factor in our decision as well!

        Thanks for your tips everyone.  :) And Shanna thanks for the correction.  I keep getting all the different palace resorts mixed up.

          Ahh...I have a sigh of relief as I finally booked our wedding.  For the last month, I've been debating when/where.  I've spent hours looking at all of the info.  You will make the right decision....sounds like you are putting a lot of thought into it.  Good luck and happy planning!

            I think booking the resort was the most stressful part of our wedding.
