I have been thinking about starting a thread like this for a while, just haven't gotten around to doing it. I'm getting married at the MP in 2 months, July 23. My FI and I have been to the MP twice and once to Aventura Palace. I would love to hear what the other girls are doing.

 

We are having a ceremony at the Tucan gazebo at 4pm, followed by a private dinner buffet reception at the Lake Terrace at 6pm. We're using the resort photographer, the pictures I've seen are great and we're renting the DJ equipment and using our own laptop and CD's. Can't wait!smile29.gif

Hey Pookie,

 

I appreciate your post since I am still in the very early planning stages. I also want a private reception, still unsure about what locations would be available for (I have about 50-60 guests) me. I am still unsure about the photographer... I would like to hire Elizabeth Medina but I'm on a tight budget.

 

 

In terms of rooms, are you doing a room block, if so where are your guests staying during your wedding?

 

Please do post a review and pictures after your wedding so I can learn from you.

 

Good luck with the planning and wedding. I look forward to more posts from you

Hi there :) I get married at the MP January 17, 2009. We have a 2pm ceremony and I'm thinking directly after that we'll have a 2 hour coctail hour and then a dinner reception (emailed them yesterday to set this up).

 

I wanted to bring an outside photographer as well, but it wasn't in the budget. Looking at others photos (Betsy and Kahjane...I think I spelled it wrong) I'm happy using the resorts photogs. However, we are going to do a TTD session using a local photog, we'll just do it off the resort.

 

Hmmmmm...I think that's it for now.

 

Oh, and we JUST set up our block of rooms...I'm still waiting for them to charge my card and send my link so guests can start booking (two already booked airfair lol).

Cutie...you should put the MP in your wedding location.

 

I only say that because when I'm reading other threads and people give suggestions or say things they've done, I always look to see where they're getting married. lol

 

Sometimes I think they're a MP bride, not not sure and then I try to find their intro thread...random

The hotel has a number of terraces outside and some ballrooms outside. I know the other terraces are smaller, but dont know how many people they fit. I will have about 55 guests, so the Lake Terrace is perfect for us. The picture is below:

My FI's parents are members, so we got a block of rooms and booked through member services. We did not get a TA, because of that. We are staying on the Sunrise side, its quieter and that's where we usually stay. Tucan gazebo is on the Nizuc side and the Lake Terrace is in Sunrise. Member services promised to try to get us rooms together, we'll have about 20 rooms, as long as we are in the same building, I don't really care.

They JUST sent me pics of all the locations with the amount of people they fit.

 

Pookie - How long ago did you book your reception. They said I can't do it until about 3 months before.

I purchased my ceremony package and signed my contract in August. I booked my reception location in November. I didn't even know you had to wait until 3 months, I just emailed the Florida office and kept on them until they booked it, they never said anything.

Hey Dez, I haven't yet received a confirmation from Moon as to my time (I am asking for 5pm on april 11, 2009), holding off until it it official official. I also fear jinxing it he he

 

anyway, did you sign a contract? (I am in that process right now of trying to get them) what's the info on the contract stuff, what did you have to pay and commit to?

 

I am glad we are all talking in one place YAYYYY

Hey Pookie,

 

I LOVE YOU thanks so much for pic of Lake Terrace. I think that is where I am going to hold mine too. You think there is enough space for a dance floor for 55 people? I hope so since that is how many people I am expecting.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
