Just in time for the kick off of wedding season, Palladium Hotel Group has announced its new Karen Bussen Wedding Collection, designed exclusively for Weddings by Palladium by internationally renowned party guru Karen Bussen. The new collection, available at company's TRS Hotels and Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts all-inclusive properties, combines the amenities Palladium Hotel Group guests have come to expect with multiple options for couples to customize their celebrations.
"Weddings by Palladium has long delighted couples with its luxurious yet seamless destination wedding options, but this new collection is a complete refresh of offerings – really zeroing in on the hottest trends and most desired amenities in the wedding planning industry," said Bussen, who has partnered with Weddings by Palladium since 2011.
The new Karen Bussen Wedding Collection includes the following themes:
- Evermore, designed to bring couples' love stories to life with lush hanging ivy and dendrobium orchids
- Bliss in Bloom, marked by romantic roses and vintage-inspired details (including an upgraded/luxury option)
- Timeless, with just the right amount of "bling" – combining lilies, roses and lush greenery with pearls and crystals
- Waves of Love, inspired by sun, sea and sand, incorporating billowy fabrics and seashells (including an upgraded/luxury option)
- Lovebirds, designed especially small groups or those eloping or renewing their vows
The Karen Bussen Wedding Collection also incorporates multicultural wedding celebrations, including intricate, multi‑day South Asian weddings. The collection includes four deluxe events: Goddess Mehndi Party, Sangeet, Beautiful Byah: The Wedding Ceremony, and a Private Vivah Reception.
All Weddings by Palladium events can be completely customized with the Fabulously Flexible approach, offering legal, symbolic and/or non-denominational services to fit any couples' needs – including same-sex ceremonies in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. All Palladium Hotel Group properties offer numerous ceremony backdrops, from beach pergolas and garden gazebos to chapels and spa atriums.
"In launching the new Karen Bussen Wedding Collection, our goal is to serve the ever-growing destination wedding market, driven by couples that are seeking niche options to fit their own unique personalities and needs," said Pilar Arizmendi, Palladium Hotel Group's VP of Sales & Marketing – The Americas. "Whether it's a cultural request, like a South Asian wedding celebration, a same-sex ceremony or a specific religious focus, we want to help couples create lasting memories."
In addition to the newly launched ceremony collection, the Karen Bussen Wedding Collection features a new Party Lovers collection to help couples plan the perfect post-ceremony celebration. Options include Party Lovers, for those who want to customize their celebration from start to finish; and Beach Bash, for those looking for a private beach party under the stars. Curated, creative food and drinks stations, ranging from a Taco and Tequila Bar to a Make Your Own S'mores option, take customization to the next level.
Couples planning a celebration with Weddings by Palladium also receive access to luxurious amenities like dedicated wedding coordinators, room upgrades, and breakfast in bed. Additionally, couples have complimentary access to the hydrotherapy area at Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness and a 15 percent discount on spa services. Other romantic options include a Twilight Photoshoot and Dinner for Two, Moonlight Dinner for Two, and Sunset Wine and Cheese for Two.
