    Since there are so few recent posts on planning and reviews for the Beach Palace Resort in Cancun, I decided to start one. I will be posting my updates on pics through out my planning process as well as a review and pics after the wedding. It is my hope that this thread will be helpful to other brides as much as the brides on the Moon Palace thread have been a help to me. A little info to start off.... My wedding is August 16, 2013 (yes a long time from now so plenty of time to plan). My hubby and I will be "renewing" our vows, however it's mostly a 2nd wedding as we are from different states and most of our friends were not able to attend the first wedding. We will be celebrating 5 years of marriage! I will try to post as much info as possible and answer any questions that other brides have as well as post any answers I receive from my questions. Happy posting!
    Just as stir crazy as my first wedding!

      *So far I have my ceremony date booked. 

      *I sent out the save the dates (which also doubled as the RSVP/invitations since guests can RSVP on our website)

      *I only have 4 people RSVP'd as of now, 2 of which are my parents.  But its early, 15 months to go!

      *I am stuck on what colors to choose. All white, white & pink or white & turquoise. Help!!

        I have purchased one dress so far. This dress will be my "back up" dress in case I don't find a long wedding dress that I like without spending a fortune (still have my dress from the first wedding). This was the dress hubby picked, I will wear it for our welcome cocktail party if I get another dress.

          Hubby has vetoed the all white theme so it's either pink or turquoise.

            Hi and congrats on celebrating 5 years! This dress is really nice; may I ask if you don't mind where you purchased it? I'm looking for something similar for the reception or rehearsal dinner.

             

            Happy Planning!

              Thank you. I bought it from www.simplydresses.com. The dress is $135 but I used a coupon code from www.retailmenot.com to get 20% off before shipping.

                  So glad you started this thread! A new Beach Palace thread was definitely needed! I posted a question to you about the planning process and if you had any idea when I start getting info on food, music, center pieces and making those choices to please pass it along... I am really lost on how that works and I feel like I don't know where I'm at on my budget, because I have NO IDEA what I will be spending on those things... Anyways, I posted it to you on another thread, but I am again here since I hadn't seen you started this thread yet and I'd love to be a part of it so feel free to just respond wherever!!

                   

                   

                  THAT DRESS IS GORGEGOUS!! 

                   

                  I really like the all white idea too. It is just clean and bright and simple and lets the ocean be beautiful! I am right there with you, I want very little color too! I am doing like a pale pale pale minty-aqua (my invitation envelopes are calling it lagoon) and coral so i think your pink and turquoise either way are great and very fitting for the tropical wedding!!!

                    Congrats Jenni! I'm glad to see someone else is getting married there in August. I was beginning to think i was alone. emailing janessa seems to work well for me. i just keep a running list of questions on my ipad then just email them to her. She was supposed to schedule the "planning session with me but hasn't responded with a date yet. I'm just as nervous about it, but i promised hubby that I wouldn't sweat it until after our vacation in August (we're going to the dominican republic). As far as the sky terrace she said it would be booked 3 months out and a previuos bride told me they do no more than four weddings a day and none at the same time so there shouldn't be a problem. My biggest issue right now is trying to figure out how to qualify for the free events as my travel agent has no clue about it. :confused:
