    I’m taking the initiative and starting an official BP thread for all things BP; resort itself, wedding, reception, vendors, etc.

     

    About me; I’m an August 10, 2013 BP bride and just getting my planning underway.

      Hi Stacie,

       

      I'm a July 12th, 2013 bride, so we're pretty close! I've put a deposit down on the Pearl Shimmer package. They've confirmed that I'll get the sky terrace for my ceremony, and the other sky terrace with the pool and bar for my reception (not sure what this terrace is called).

       

      I've contacted an outside Vendor, Zuniga, for reception decor. I'm not going too big, as I don't want to spend too much money on this. I'm just doing a simple reception table decor that kind of matches the Pearl Shimmer theme, purple lights under the tables, and floating candles in the pool. As for PSAV- I am still up in the air about getting a DJ. I'm definitely getting the speaker and IPOD, but I may just have a friend DJ for me. I'm not doing a dance floor, too expensive.

       

      I'm going with Ocean Photo Studio for photography. They come with the wedding package, and I like their work. I will probably upgrade to a better photography package and video.

       

      My wedding dress comes in on December 10th, so excited! All my bridesmaid dresses are ordered as well.

       

      My fiance and I have booked our trip. Hotel + airfare on travelocity.com for 7 nights, 8 days at the Beach Palace. None of our guests have booked yet though, but I'm expecting people to begin booking in January 2013, after the holidays. I sent my Save the Date's out about 2 months ago, and my invitations are all ready to go, I just have to mail them.

       

      Clarissa from Beach palace has been very helpful. She's the one who helped me book the Pearl Shimmer Package and has been sooo helpful, answering any questions I have. Margarita Patino is my wedding planner. She sent me food options, etc...after I booked the Pearl Shimmer package, but I think it was a mistake, because your wedding planner isn't really supposed to contact you until 60 or so days before the wedding. I've been emailing her too, but she does not respond. Clarissa is much better at responding.

       

      If you have any questions let me know!

       

      - Nicole

        Nicole,

         

        Do you know if we have to pay the outside vendor fee of $500 for PSAV?

          Stacie,

           

          I now remember I had emailed Clarissa at BP about this. Their preferred vendor is JSAV, and they will charge an outside fee of $500.00 for any outside vendors, including PSAV.

           

          Good Afternoon Nicole,

           

          We are not longer working with PSAV, the only vendor now is JSAV any outside vendor will cost you $500 usdL

           

          Do you still want to get the PSAV pricelist?

           

          Regards,

          Clarissa

           

          That's the email I received from her! Hope this helps,

           

          - Nicole

            Do you by chance have the pricing info for JSAV?

             

            Thanks for your help!

                  For any past Beach Palace brides- just curious, how close to your wedding date did most of your guests book their trips? I am about 5 months away and we're only at 33 room nights, around 10 people :( I know there are a few more guaranteed booking, but I'm just nervous. I invited 70 people, and only a couple have sent back the RSVP cards saying they can't go. So there are still so many up in the air. I hope people make it! Also, I was wondering for any past beach palace brides that didn't have a huge wedding party- how was the private dinner reservation after the ceremony? If we don't have at least 30 people, we aren't going to have a big reception. Instead, we're going to utilize the dinner reservation for 30 people that the wedding package comes with. But I still want to have first dance, cake cutting, etc...I wonder how "private" the dinner reservation really is? Like is it private enough to have a ipod dock setup for background music? Any help would be great! Thanks, Nicole
