Last month I got a peek at Moon Palace Jamaica Grande’s destination wedding venues, including the two gazebos, each on either side of the resort and ideal for weddings under 100 guests; the 200-guest Terrace; the 400-guest ballroom, and the setting most couples choose, beachside. Whichever venue your couple chooses, Palace Resorts (weddings.palaceresorts.com), which has been planning destination weddings at its Mexico resorts for some years now, can create a customized setting, with your help of course, that’s just right for the bride and groom. You and the couple can work with a Palace Resorts wedding coordinator to choose just the right bridal bouquet, floral accents, custom wedding cakes, menu, and unique linens. Couples can also opt for a photo package, and the Palace Resorts team will help the couple design a personalized wedding website that features engagement pictures and favorite songs, as well as the registry that can include everything from flowers and wedding decor, to tours, golf and spa treatments.
Additionally, Palace Resorts’ 3-night complimentary Paradise Promotion allows couples to get a preview of Moon Palace Jamaica Grande’s destination wedding offerings. Couples will receive three nights at a special rate, and once they confirm the wedding, the value of the three nights is credited to the account once on property to be used towards wedding enhancements.
Keep in mind that in addition to planning the perfect day, what’s key in planning a memorable destination wedding experience is giving the couple a unique vacation with loved ones. Recommend a catamaran excursion for the wedding party, breakfast in bed the day after the ceremony, a poolside cocktail party, in other words, additional experiences that happen throughout the resort stay. As one travel advisor told me recently, “Creating the ‘wows’ are the intangibles.”
