Oh ok..thanks erika..I'm not exactly sure if I'm going to send my dress out...I just feel like through travel it may need some TLC?  What did you do?  I'll have to ask the shop their opinion at my last fitting.

I didnt do anything with my dress. I actually had it wrapped up in 3 dress bags while traveling just to make sure it didnt get messed up. My dress was all chiffon at the bottom so it didnt even wrinkle. Hubbys suit was the only thing that needed steaming. Definitely as the shop, Im sure they can give you extra bags and stuff to protect your dress while traveling. :)

Jess,

 

They are so ridiculous with their set up fee. I feel asking asking someone from my family to make sure things are set up right after the ceremony. I don't think I'm doing lanterns, but def favors which will either be in a little bag and I'm totally doing the maracas. $65 to do jus that is insane.... and I'm probably not having that many people either.  I feel $65 is unnecessary with all you pay for the table set up which is $400 per.

she also told me that if I want my dress steamed that they take it to cancun and it takes 2 business days....really!?!  :oP

I can't remember if it was someone from this forum or the Moon Palace Forum, but one bride said that the WC took off the $65 set up fee and didn't charge her because she only had a few things- chair sashes and maybe favors.  So keep that in mind.  I'm sure if you only have a few things to set up and not a lot of ppl attending, you might be able to get out of being charged the fee! :)

Well that would be nice...all I have are a few lanterns to hang from the pandero terrace on thursday for my cocktail party, and a few chair sashes for my wedding day!  I can't even imagine paying $65 for both of those things!? Maybe she'll give once we're there...if not, I'm sure my mother or one of my girls will help me out.

Ok ladies - back to the ever-so-popular & inconsistent topic of outside vendors....

 

I'm starting to research DJs bc aside from photography, this is one of the MOST important things to me - a great reception :)

I'm hearing I have to use JSAV, but then I'm hearing I can use an outside one & just put in the outside vendor exception request (like I did w/Del Sol) & just pay their day pass. So are all of you using/used JSAV? Can I and/or should I look @ others (ie. Doremixx, Mannia, etc.)?

 

I'd much appreciate any insight, esp. since many of you are ahead of me in the planning process!

Hi Ladies,

 

I am getting married at the Cove Palace on the 30th of July- this year! I haven't been posting, but I have been reading all of your invaluable information. We have our first conference call with our onsite wedding co-ordinator, Martha, tomorrow and only just now are starting really planning our wedding. I was told that we were only allowed to have the resort vendors, but like many of you ladies I am really concerned about the quality of the photo's and also the big thing for me is the party afterwards so I want to have either a live band or a dj that actually knows what they are doing.

What has been your experience with the onsite photographer/dj? Are there outside vendors that you would recommend instead? I keep reading about Del Sol photography...

 

Also did any choose the complimentary wedding package? Did you have extra flowers/decorations for the area?

 

Any help and information would be greatly appreciated :)

Hey Sam!!! Congrats on your upcoming wedding!!  As far as the outside vendors go, I really do think they are attempting to become more strict with their policies.  The contracts we sign state that we aren't permitted to have any, and we have all been sort of stretching with the photogs. 

 

I do not think you can bring in any DJ you want, but I'm not 100% sure because I'm not using one.  I feel like I have heard a previous bride say that there becomes an issue with insurance and use of electricity and everything else??  But there are ladies on here that would be able to tell you better than me!

 

I ok'd my outside photographer with Yesenia and will have to pay a guest pass, so I would definitely go that route first before you lock someone down for sure.  I am using Octavio Montes because he is very easy on the budget, but Del Sol and La Luna's pictures are out of this world!  You may have trouble booking so close to your date though, so if you want to use someone definitely act fast.  Juan Navarro is good as well.
 

 

I am doing the complimentary wedding package and just bringing my own chair sashes.  I'm a "the stunning view is enough deco for me" kind of girl, so not having included decorations doesn't bother me at all.  I also made my own bouquets and bouts so they are giving me an alter flower display in place of the included bouquet/bout in the complimentary package.

 

Hope that helps!!  I leave in 5 days, so I'll be sure to post pics and a review when I return so you know more of what to expect!  There is also a bride returning that just got married on June 11 that should have some current info for you as well!

I tried getting a DJ and was close to signing a contract with DJ Mania (i believe thats his name) and he cancelled his contract because ASP wouldnt allow it. I contacted my WC and she said that they only way they would allow an outside DJ is if he is willing to purchase an $100,000 insurance policy. I never understood why they required that. Music was extremely important to us, so naturally I was furious. But, in the end it worked out because we just rented out the docking station with speakers and hubby made a playlist for us. And not to sound full of myself, but my wedding was the best wedding Ive been to..ever. Everyone literally danced the whole time and I didnt once complain about the music. Hope this helps. :)

Wow!!! $100K insurance policy?! Sounds crazy ridiculous!! And honestly, sounds like just a ludicrous way they get you to go with their ppl versus bringing in someone else.

 

I wouldn't mind making a playlist either and just renting the equipment, but I just don't want to have to ask any of my guests to 'man' it and make announcements, etc. Did you have someone as an Emcee (sp?) to help guide the flow of speeches, toasts, special dances, etc.?

 

Thank you - already very helpful! :)

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
