That's one that they may not do .... Depending who you ask! I was told no early on but then my WC did it 'hush hush' but only for my family and bridal party. If that's super important you may need to stick to the presidential package or one that includes it (?gold)

Yea that's my one concern, with our guest list being so large I really cant see them doing that for me without some sort of extra cost, however I am going to compare the gold and the presidential now to see what the cost difference is! Thanks for always being so helpful @calgarybride2015 your input and advice honestly means so much, its incredibly kind and says a lot about you! :)

Awe thanks! I had a lot of brides I asked all my questions to so it's nice to give back. The best I can mind you as it sounds like some things have changed. I still can't even imagine 100 guests, you must feel so loved. You should get perks based on all the business you brought :)

    @JoannaBanana Did Adriana send you 2016 price list? I wonder if the honor the 2015 prices if you booked prior to the 2016 coming out? I ended up doing the presidential package but now after reading your thread I am wondering I should have just done the free package and then upgraded.. these decisions seem impossible.

    I just double checked and my list is 2015.

    @JoannaBanana & @calgarybride2015 & @nkavanaugh

     

    Interesting info. I reached out to Adrianna yesterday and gave her a list of everything I wanted. She said my quote was about 37,000 pesos. Which is better than I thought because she isn't charging me for the Gazebo like they originally told me which saves me like $450 CDN! I also found out that the BBQ Buffet is a minimum of 30 people so she put down 30 people for that, which is more than I had planned but c'est la vie. Does anyone know what the "After Party" is on the extra list?

    You guys are kicking my butt!!!  My bill was over $63000!  LOL :)

     

    If you are having the palapa you will just have your reception in there.  You get the 3 hours included in the cost of the upgrade to the palapa, but if you want extra time you pay the open bar per person/per hour.  Then you add on the DJ and such if you plan to use them.

     

    The 'After Party' I assume is the one in either the health or the beach bars? If yes, that is more so if you are having your dinner in the A'la Cartes.  This allows you to extend the fun, but also have some dancing/music and cut your cake there.

     

    I think to have the palapa is a minimum of 30 people, so I am not surprised they are charging you for this.

     

    Hope that helps!

    @calgarybride2015 Thanks! I thought the "After Party" was like to continue the palapa rental for more time. I think I know everything I need now for booking my extras with the resort! Excited!!

    No problem!   The package information I got (unless things changed) listed how late you can book the palapa and the booze options you can choose from to extend the reception.   We just picked the cheapest one and I believe it was around $8.50 per person per hour.   

     

    Can't wait to hear about everything you have chosen :)

      @yycbride2016 Excited for you!  And for me!

       

      So I asked Adriana about changing the colours of the lighting and I don't think she understood my question.  She responded that the white fabrics are included and others would be extra.  I reworded, we'll see what she says.

        I was thinking about the recent thread regarding which day of the week to have the wedding on.  I didn't have much choice (to get the palapa) and it's later in the week than I would like.  What I'm worried about is my SKIN!  I'm going to have to lay down some serious SPF to keep myself looking good for my pictures.  Normally I accidentally burn at least once early on and I'm PEELING and looking generally gross by about the time I'll be walking down the aisle.
