    Hello All, I am planning to have my wedding in PP in 2014 and any help you can provide will trully be a bless, I am so confused with the 75 room nights, reception, ceremony, what is included, how much I have to pay per extra people over 30, etc. Lots of questions. I am actually thinking about calling but it seems that is hard to get someone to answer or to reply to emails? TIA

      You should get a group contract and then if you have 75 room nights (which I think you would), you get unlimited private receptions (up to 3 hours/day).   You have to pay for music/upgrades/decorations/etc. but the basics are included :)

        Does anyone know if they let you use the Luna Lounge for events?

        Beautiful photos! Do I need to request permission from the resort to higher you guys for my big day or are you guys on the acceptable outside vendor list? Also you know what fees are associated with hiring your company at Playacar Palace? Lastly, how do I find pricing for your services?

         

        Thanks in advance!


        wrong.  its also $500 US to have an outside photographer.  + the $94 a person/guest pass

          I actually have it in writing that for 2013 photographers and videographers are the only vendors that are allowed to just purchase the day pass and not pay an outside vendor fee!  I was pretty careful on this because it impacted how much I was able to budget towards my photographer altogether. 

           

          I do believe that other vendors, however, have the higher fee associated w/them.

            Thank you Amanda, any idea how much all the extras will range? I know myself and definitely going to upgrade the flowers, add extra tables, DJ, decor, etc.

                  Sorry, I posted the reply and it went to the end of the thread, new to this! ... That is in the booklet (PDF) they send you when you contact them for info. There are pictures of each location

                      Hi Ladies!

                      I'm a fall bride (10/4/13) but am crashing this string as well!  You've all been really helpful so far, so thank you for your great insight! :)

                       

                      I was curious to know if any of you have been contacted yet by the wedding coordinators to begin the "heavy planning?"  From what I understand, this happens when you're 3 months out from your wedding date, so I figured if you are mostly June brides, that has likely started happening by now.  I'm wondering what, if anything, you had set/planned before this 3 month mark, and what is being set/planned now?  I'm wondering if I need to book the band/dj and photographers now, or if that happens when I work with the wedding coordinator?  I'm feeling kind of lost at the moment on what to do next...!  

                       

                      Also, which outside vendors are you ladies planning to use?  And did you choose the set tablescapes, or are you going to create your own by bringing your own items and using their decor vendor?

                       

                      Lastly, when did you ladies send out your formal invitations?  I did my save the dates 10 months in advance (which featured our website that has all of the details in it already), and was thinking to send the formal invites 4 months in advance, but I'm not too sure if that's too soon ...or too far out?

                       

                      Sorry for all of the questions! :)  

                      Thank you!

                      Lea
