    Did anyone get married on the beach? I need my feet in the sand when I say I do! The hotel said that they could do this and I will be SOOOOO upset if they try to give me a gazebo! I would love to see photos of the ceremony preformed on the beach if anyone has them! Thanks so much.

      hey peeps - looking for some advice from past brides.

      we have about 20 guests travelling with us, and although most of them are staying at mp with us, there are a few guests booked up to stay at another hotel - dreams. We did say to them that they would need to either get a room for the night at mp, or use a day pass. But my question is, with the day pass they say on the website they can only stay in til 11pm - are they strict on this??

        Hmm...I know there were a few brides who did weddings on the beach...I believe one or two wrote reviews. I think one of them was cutierosie - try searching for MP reviews, you should find some pics! I remember the reviews being good!!

          Hey MrsD! I'm not really sure because none of my guests stayed off the resort, so I don't know how strict they are about it. I can tell you that they were VERY strict with my group that our events MUST end by 10pm. So, unless you were planning something after your reception, it might not really matter that the deadline is 11. Really, the DJ like cut us off mid-song. LOL.

            Hi everyone! Quick Question. I recently signed my wedding contract but it did not say anything about getting add ons like free cocktail or reception if we had so many rooms booked. We are having about 20 guest go with us and it would be a plus if we could take advantage of this. I just wanted to know how many contracts you signed and if I just looked over this information. The one we signed really just had the wedding time and marriage requirements. Am I missing something? Thanks! Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

              JSim - I think I signed two - the one reserving my wedding date and time, and one detailing my rates. I think the one with the rates detailed the free goodies.

              MrsMoulton - I missed your question about the roses - I think they will let you throw them as long as they are natural and biodegradable. I know they will let you bring your own freeze dried petals, so I don't think it would be a problem.

                  Anyhoo, I'll be posting my review soon.

                  FYI, to those asking about honeymoons, my HUSBAND :) and I ended up extending our stay by 2 nights and staying at the Le Blanc (also owned by Palace resorts) and it was PERFECT!!! Absolutely the best honeymoon place I could think of. I'll post more about it in my review.

                  Also, to those planning right now, it's okaaaaaay- to be fair (and i think I can say this now since my DH is Mexican) I think everyone at the MP runs on Mexican time. :) So, if you don't hear from them until a month before your wedding- don't stress, it'll be okay. I ended up with a WC I've never spoken to until two weeks before, and everything worked out just as I planned.

                  About the packages Tina, that's an interesting theory... we didn't purchase a package, and got everything a la carte... but we did end up spending almost $4000, and Cristina met with us twice during the week before, and was with us every second of the actual day.
                  pyxystyx - Congratulations and welcome back!!I am definitely with you on the adjusting part! I just can't believe it's over! Also, I did not go to Le Blanc, but I talked to some people at the resort while there and they said it is amazing for couples. Maybe for our anniversary

                    I had two guests attend the wedding with a day pass. Just a FYI - tell them to get there with plenty of time. The MP is VERY strict with allowing outside visitors and it took them quite some time to get into the resort. I provided my WC with their names ahead of time as well and make sure they know where you are getting married (what gazebo or if you're on the beach, what near). Post wedding we were hanging out on the roof top bar and the bartender said that he could not serve them after 11:00. They have a different colored wrist band so they are told not to serve past this time. They were allowed to sit and relax and of course we could get them drinks, but I think it really depends on how busy they are and what section of the resort you are in. The roof top bar at the Grand is nice and quiet so I don't think they would have walked over and told them that they needed to leave.

                      JSim - Like Nibsmom said, it will come for the room block contract. When I signed the contract for the room block (FYI - you will need to pay for your rooms at this time) it included the information for the freebies. Something to look out for on this contract is that it includes the number of "rooms" as well as "room nights" . For example, my husband (yay!) and I stayed for 9 nights. Instead of counting us as "1 room" this counted towards "9 nights". Most of my guests stayed for 4-5 nights so this helped. One of my guests did not book through the link and instead booked through a TA so her room nights did not count towards my total. She also was not part of the room block. Our rooms were pretty much spread out throughout the entire Grand section and she was ocean front at Nizuc.
