Palace Resorts Destination Wedding Guide

Palace All-Inclusive Resorts:
Destination Wedding Guide

Welcome to Yellow Umbrella Travel’s 2017 Complete Guide to getting married at the Palace Resorts. Please scroll through or click the links below to take you to that particular section.


Q.) How do we book our wedding at Palace Resorts?

A.) Give us a call at or email us here and we’ll get started. First, we’ll help you decide which Palace Resort is best for you and your guests. Then we’ll connect with the property to confirm your ceremony date and time. Once you have a signed contract and have paid a deposit to hold your date, we’ll help you with obtaining a special rate on a room block for you and your guests.


Q.) How much is the ceremony deposit?

A.) There is a $250US deposit required to confirm and hold your ceremony date and time. The $250US will be credited to your wedding package of choice or credited back to you at check out, if you opt for the complimentary ceremony package.


Q.) How far in advance must we book our wedding?

A.) There is no set time in advance that you must book your wedding but dates and times are subject to availability, so you should start the planning process as soon as you can. There are some perks that are offered on room blocks, if you book 9 months or more in advance.

Please note that weddings or vow renewals booked once on site do not qualify for the complimentary package.


Q.) Do the weddings at Palace Resorts include other vendors, like a DJ, a photographer, or a florist?

A.) Yes and No. Palace Resorts does offer a variety of wedding collections that include décor, such as upgraded linens, flowers, centerpieces, upgraded chairs, and more. Other vendors, like a DJ or a photographer are not included in those packages but can be sourced from Palace Resorts. They offer what is referred to as “in house” vendors to choose from. You are welcome to use their in house vendors for all extra wedding services.


Q.) What if I don’t want to use the in house vendors that Palace Resorts offers?

A.) You are welcome to bring in your own vendors from outside the resorts, both from the local area and internationally. There will be an $800 fee for all outside vendors, though. This fee is charged per outside vendor. For example, if you hire a photographer to come with you from your home state of Texas, you would pay an $800 “outside vendor” fee to Palace Resorts. If you ALSO hire an outside vendor as your decorator, there would be an additional $800 outside vendor fee. This would bring your total to $1600 in outside vendor fees.

If you would like to use outside vendors for your Palace wedding, we recommend working with vendors that include a number of services, so that your outside vendor fee is reduced. For example, we’d recommend you choose a vendor that offers both photography and videography or a decorator that includes flowers, linens, and lighting. That way you pay less in outside vendor fees.

Of course, if you choose your vendors from the in house vendor list at Palace Properties, there will be no additional fees to use their services, other than the cost of the actual services rendered.


Q.) Can we get married on the beach? Or in a ballroom? Or near the pool?

A.) Yes! All of the Palace properties offer multiple ceremony and reception site locations. Please contact us so we can help you narrow down the right location for your wedding!


Q.) We’re Catholic. What Palace property offers the option for having a Catholic Ceremony?

A.) Currently, Moon Palace Spa & Resort is the only Palace property that offers Catholic ceremonies.


Q.) Do we get a rehearsal time?

A.) Yes, you can have a rehearsal time the day before your wedding ceremony, if you’d like.


Q.) How far in advance do we need to arrive on site, before our wedding, to confirm all of our wedding details?

A.) Depending on the Palace Property that you have chosen for your wedding, and if you will have a legal or symbolic ceremony, you will need to arrive either and be on site 3 days before the wedding or 4 days before your wedding.


Q.) Will we be able to confirm our wedding details, once on site? Like in a walk through with someone from Palace Resorts?

A.) Yes, you will meet on site with your assigned Palace wedding coordinator a few days before your wedding to finalize all details. You may add any additional last minute services at that time as well, but please note that any services that are added last minute are subject to availability.
