    @dwbride2014 did you make an appointment to view your flowers from Flores Riviera Maya when you got down there to make sure they were what you wanted, or were you just brave and waited for them to show up? I think I would want to see a example of say a centerpiece to make sure it was what I wanted! I really want peonies for my bouquet and have picked to get married in April just so I can have them!!!!

     

    Also, did they put the centerpieces in the vases for you or did  you bring them down? I'm thinking of gold vases and not sure they would have them there? 

     

    Thanks!

    Hi BDABeachBum,

    The only thing I wish I did before the wedding that I didn't do was go to the florist. Don't get me wrong, I was incredibly happy with the flowers and the service I got from Flores Riviera Maya, but the flowers I received were slightly different from what I ordered. I had sent pictures of flowers for them to quote and although the colors and type of flowers were the same, the ombré centerpiece I ordered had the flowers all mixed, not going from light to dark. It was still lovely though!

    I noticed it right away, as any bride would, but since it was the day of and everything was going 100 miles an hour, I just let it go. Nobody noticed, nobody cared, so I was fine with it. If you feel the flowers are that important, I would try and set up an appointment before. But I think a phone call or an email asking for pictures a day or two before would be fine too (just thinking of valuable beach time!!)

    The vases were included in the price. You can always ask them if they have anything else to sell you, or ask Zuniga, the Palace resorts decor company (though they are a little overpriced in my opinion) if you can rent from them. If gold centerpieces are that important to the look you want, the PP coodinator should be able to point you in the right direction if those two options don't work out. Good luck!!

    Does anyone have a list of preferred vendors and their prices? I go for my site visit in a few weeks and am trying to prepare. Also, has anyone had a ballroom reception? How do you plan to decorate it and what are the costs for some draping and uplighting?

    So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.

    Hi TheBHolders,

    You can ask your coordinator for a list of preferred vendors. They should have a list handy to send right away. As for the decour, the palace resorts use Zuniga and they will get you connected with someone there. I was sent a 90 pg PDF of all their design stuff. I had my reception outside but did check out the ballroom as a backup option. It's very spacious and they had drapping & lighting setup when I saw it and it was lovely. Good luck!!

      Hi
      My wedding at playacar palace is on November 4, 2014 on the third floor terrace. Does anyone know what the bridal walkway looks like? Mara, my coordinator, has not responded yet and im starting to stress out. My ideal location didnt involve pushing my dress thru a sliding glass door!

      Hi dee42scar, I had my ceremony on the terrace and it is tiny, I think the max is 30 people. The view is amazing, great for photos and it's quiet and intimate. The isle is maybe 15 ft long, I felt like I ran down it lol even though I was walking slow. There are sliding glass doors but they are double wide so if you have a fuller dress that shouldn't be an issue, though the stairs getting up there are narrow. There is another terrace overlooking the ocean that is totally enclosed called the luna lounge. When I had my wedding in May it was only shown to us as an exception because we kept asking about. It's in the wing near the spa in the palace members area.

        Thank you for the info!! I will definitely ask about the luna lounge. Its funny you mentioned that location because they suggested my fiance to wait their to kill time until the ceremony. (We are getting married just the two of us)..they thought he could wait there but they made it sound like it was a bar?..

        Either way, thank you for the great advice and information. :)

        That information was not entirely correct.  Luna Lounge is a lounge near the main lobby.  dwbride2014 is referring to the Luna Terrace.  I had my reception in Luna Terrace this past August. It is on the top floor in the Members/Sales office.  They clear the office out (for a price) for your event.
