So excited!!!

A couple of months after we booked our rooms my TA told us that they were no longer letting people book oceanview rooms. So, we'd have to "upgrade" when we arrived. I complained to her as we had already booked them and she went back and forth with MP about it. They finally relented and we are now able to have all of our guests choose Superior or oceanview when they book vs. at the resort. My TA has a good relationship with MP as she has worked with them before, perhaps you can bug your TA to get it done. After all, they still offer it as an option to book on their website. Just a thought...

Thanks for the insight!

Everyone went their on routes of booking. We specifically went directly through the resort. I will talk to FI to see if he's up for the upgrade (couldn't hurt, right?)

I just went through the MP's website and started going through the booking process for our same week and its turning up with about $8 cheaper a night. I'm not going to sweat a total of $56. Because our guest list is so small, it was pointless to try for a contract (which didn't offer any kind of savings anyway). Everyone went their preferred ways which for most of my family was through Costco. I think they got off paying about $3800 for two people/7 nights including airfare from Reno, NV.
Right now expedia is showing $468/night.

I'm not going to stress about it. The damage is done. We're going to have an unforgettable time and it still 1/3 of the price than had we had the same caliber of wedding at home.



**** Just got word that my brother IS going to attend, yea!!!
I have no idea how they were able to get a confirmed ocean side room but their itinerary actually states "confirmed oceanside room." I'll believe it when I see it and I don't mean them getting a room, I mean them coming at all - they don't even have their passports yet, so who knows if they will even make it. One would think that being the mother of the groom (and it being the first wedding in the family) that she'd be a little more prompt with getting a passport, etc.

I have a question about the beach.. My Fiance works with a guy who had stayed at Moon and said that the beach area/ ocean was rocky and had a lot of seaweed. Did anyone happen to take notice of the beach? Was it nice? Were you able to swim in it? I plan on getting married on the beach.

 

Thank you!

Sarah,
Was it an extra charge to use your music with their speakers and system?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
