My Palmilla Wedding Review

Recommended Posts

Since this forum saved me from insanity while planning my wedding, and I wanted to return the favor and post my review. Please let me know if you have questions on anything! I tried to include a picture of everything, cake, flowers, bouquet, dress etc.

 

My wedding review – Sept 15th, 2007 at the One and Only Palmilla

 

The O&O Palmilla – A + (times a million)

Words cannot describe how unbelievably amazing this resort is. The service is unparalleled to any resort – from your personal butler, to complimentary tequila, water and snacks in your room, to the pool service, food, staff, spa, property etc…the list goes on. We had the welcome party, rehearsal dinner, wedding dinner, the cake and day after brunch - all at the Palmilla. I am grateful and glad I picked this resort. It is beautiful. I was afraid I was going to make my guests bankrupt after staying here, but they said it was worth it. (And I found out that the pool food is the same price as the Hilton in Cabo!!) My coordinator at the Palmilla, Katia Unger is a saint!! I am convinced she is the hardest working woman in Mexico. I was not nervous or stressed at all!! She is a brides†dream coordinator. If you can swing the prices at the Palmilla – do it!!

 

Flowers: Elema Damy A –

This was the only think I wish I could have done differently. I have no idea why I spent the money I did on flowers – when no one really cares!! I could have done with out the flowers on the tables during dinner. It was dark outside, and no one could see them. Oh well. However, I loved the arch she did at my ceremony and my bouquet. She and Carlos are great to work with. I suggest providing ton of pictures of what you want. There was some confusion on a few details, but thatâ€s because I was limited on what flowers I could get in Cabo in Sept. Oh yeah, and she is pricey – but open to negotiation!!

Ballroom Furniture: Oxten A+

We set up the ballroom like a lounge, and this was my favorite part of the wedding! It was worth the money. The room looked transformed into a lounge/club. Cost: $3500

OXTEN

 

DJ: Ricardo Patino A+

I am so happy I chose Ricardo as our DJ. He really kept our party going. Our guests said it was the best wedding music ever! He is professional, and very responsive to emails. The best part about Ricardo, is that he will only play what you want at your wedding. We provided a list of songs, and he stuck to it. He can improvise too. He also wants to know what not to play during the party. His equipment is also state of the art. Cost: about $1000 for 4 ½ hours.

Bachelorette Party Dinner: Baja Cantina Dockside C

I did not like this restaurant. I wanted a place that was low key, and had good Mexican food. The food was mediocre, and they gave way too little of it. The website is also deceiving!! The restaurant looks so different on their website, I thought we were in the wrong restaurant! I passed by Mi Casa, and wished we went there.

 

Wedding Dress: Reem Acra A +

I loved my wedding dress!! I think I might have to wear it once a month for a day, because I love it so much.

 

Photograpy: Juan Carlos Tapia N/A

I havenâ€t seen photos yet, but I really liked working with him. The man knows what heâ€s doing. Cost: about $2800 for 5 hours.

 

Airport Transportation: Transcabo A+

To help alleviate with traveling costs, we paid for airport transportation for our guests. This company is great! I read a lot of good reviews on them, so I felt confident using them. I did everything over email. Even with all the changes with flight itineraries, they were on top of everything. Punctual, courteous service, and great to work with even over email.

Everything was sooo gorgeous! Tell me more about Baja Cantina. We are having around 100 guests and I thought this place would be awesome for the taco bar. Does anyone else have ay comments or concerns about Baja Cantina?

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
