The Special Wedding Group Rates have been secured and rooms have been blocked off with a room block, waiting for you to book your stay! There is a 3-night minimum stay for the rates. The rates are below. .

PLEASE NOTE: Not every room category has been added to the room block. If you choose a room that is not part of the room block (either because it was never part of it or because all the other rooms in the block have been booked), I will have to ask the hotel to confirm both the availability of the room and if they will honor the rates. I will let you know once that has been confirmed or ask you to choose another category if it is not available. This resort sells out fast; to guarantee the room category of your choice, book asap!

Booking and FAQ

Booking and FAQ

To be considered part of Aimee & Ben's Wedding Group, you must book through the group rates and not through any other method (even directly with the hotel). We have negotiated competitive group rates and secured a room block to make this as easy as possible. To participate in all of the wedding-related activities, you must stay at Grand Palladium White Sands or TRS Yucatan as part of the wedding group.

  • A refundable deposit in the amount of $100/room is required to reserve your room and book your stay. You do not need to know all the parties in the room, the travel dates, or the room category; book your room based on what you think you will need and any changes can be made until the balance due date.

  • The deadline for the balance to be paid is December 30, 2018. Cancellations must be received in writing 7 days prior to this date to be refundable.

Any changes made to your booking after December 30, 2018, will be subject to a $75 change fee. Any changes requested after the balance due date must be paid for in full upfront even before they are confirmed. Name changes are deemed cancellations of the original booking and new bookings per the hotel; therefore, bookings are nontransferable after the due date of December 30, 2018, and will be charged accordingly. All late payments will be assessed a $25 penalty per every 5 business days the payment is late.
