One said that I have to put down a deposit for all the rooms and another one said I did not. How is everyone doing this? I really hope that I can go about it with out putting down a room deposit. Any input would be awesome. I am getting super nervous....yikes!
    We are working with Teresa from Vacations4less (referred by TammyHost). We had to put down a $1500 deposit to hold our group contract but this goes towards our room. Hope that helps!

      I did the exact same thing, and I'm working with the same travel agent! Our deposit was 1750 I believe. I figured that when I got down to the MP and met with my WC, I would arrange all the free stuff. Especially because I still have no idea how I want all my events to fall!

        How cool...we have the same TA! She is very helpful!! We went with the free package and then going to add on optional services (carriage ride, photography) when we meet with the onsite WC in Cancun. We also are hoping for a beach wedding. Hopefully we will meet the 10 rooms, kinda cutting it close if I rough count everyone. Still haven't decided whether to have a dinner reception or just to go with the cocktail hour.

          Cutierosie- Thanks a lot for the pictures, they helped a lot! I don't understand though, do you have to pay extra to have the wedding on the beach as opposed to gazebo?

            We also put down deposits through our TA. We are getting the Deluxe Wedding package and had to pay half of that in advance. The rest of the deposit was based on room number. We had all the people attending our wedding, including us, pay at least a $150 deposit to hold their spot with the remainder due the first week of April.

            One thing to note, The contract our TA got for us has an either so many rooms or so many room night clause. You may want your TA to check this. To get the included items it states x number rooms for three nights OR x number rooms times 3 total room nights (e.g. we are shooting for 25 rooms for 3 nights or a total of 75 room nights to get the unlimited free events).

            [whew!! I hope that makes sense!!]

              They have golf carts to transport people from one side of the resort to another but for the most part your wedding guests just walk to the wedding location. It's not that bad, my grandma is in a wheelchair and had no problem getting her there! The staff is really helpful and accomodating too!

                Hey guys! I have a couple of quick questions I'm hoping you guys will be able to help me out with. First I am coming up to my 3month mark, and should be getting a WC assigned soon, but how do they initially contact you to start setting things up? And second, I am REALLY interested in doing TTD pictures but am totally lost in how do get the ball rolling on that one, any helpful hints? Thanks so much, Im not really sure what I would have done without this website, except be totally lost with this whole destination wedding thing!

                  Hey Beachbride ~ I'm at 2&1/2 so I just passed the mark of doing a lot of those things. I emailed the MP and someone emailed me back with my WCs name. I contacted her with questions and we've been chatting via email ever since. It usually takes a few days for replies but I've never had to wait more than 2 or 3. As for TTD, I just hired my photographer so I can give you a few tips/ideas if you want. There are also several threads about Cancun photographers if you put in a search for it. If you need any help feel free to PM me.

                    Hey Ladies!!

                    Ok, so I just got an e-mail from Maribel outlining the new document requirements for the Moon Palace.

                    Here is what she wrote:

                    Dear Miss Cindy:

                    Thank you for your message, As per new government disposition to get married for civil ceremony the documentation required is as follows:

                    bride and groom:
                    1) Passports
                    2) certified copy of your birth certificate ( as the offices keeps it and do not give it to you back , in case you only bring your original )
                    3) blood test
                    4) tourist ID form you get upon arrival at Cancun airport.

                    if divorced: the name for the marriage license appears as on passport shows.

                    if name changed the name on marriage certificate is as on this document

                    Please feel free to contact us for any further assistance.

                    Kind Regards

                    Maribel Blancarte

                    I hope this clears some things up for a few MP brides. I know this will save some money too!!

                    Cheers!

                    ~Cindy~
