I dont mind if they cant come just wish they were honest and told me rather than me finding out from others.bann.gif

how are you getting lots of other things free? share your tips! wink.gif I don't think we've got anything free yet!

i was thinking of real touch flowers too. that's an idea. let me know how you get on. have you contacted Bloominggorgeous yet? what kind of prices are they quoting? how will you get them from home to Mexico?

Thks.
What exactly do you need to know? I was looking at doing this when i was going to get married in Portugal. basicallly you have a legal wedding in your own country, any kind you want (we were going to have a small registry office wedding with just our parents and brothers) and then you go to your country of choice and have a blessing ceremony, which is just like a wedding, but i think the wording of the ceremony are slightly different. it looks/feels like just like a wedding though. hope that is of some help!

it's totally up to you. i got my WC so early because Palace resorts made a bit of a mistake with my original booking so they gave me a direct contact early. i think they're regretting it because i bug them with emails often! although they take weeks to reply!

if you want why don't you email weddings@palaceresorts.com and ask them to come back to you on x y z questions you have, and then i bet they'll reply and copy in a MP WC! then you'll have a contact to hassle!

i am of the mindset that i am in no rush to get things confirmed, but if i can get things done early, then great!

hope that's of some help!

To do the blood work at the moon and have a minister do your ceremony it is $350. You may also have to get apostle seals on the birth certificates which i was told is $25 each seal and you need one for each of you. The wedding certificate they give you is all in Spanish and you have to pay someone either at the resort or back in your home country to get it translated (anywhere from $50- $100). If you are like me getting blood taken leaves MASSIVE black and blue marks and doesn't look very pretty especially in wedding photos.

My soultion: Las Vegas the minister and marriage license is $115 and you can get the license and walk across the street to the Justice of the Peace and get married 35 seconds later. MUCH easier than dealing with all of the legal stuff in Mexico!

Of course if Las Vegas isn't your style you could always find out the local marriage license in your area and go and get married at the court house!

I think you should! I noticed other people booking things as well so I went ahead and contacted the miami office to assign me a WC. When I emailed her I was only given 2 choices for the cocktail..one was grass and the other was paved by the water. I told her high heels dont work well with grass lol

So email miami and get your WC :)

That's exactly what I did. I'm still waiting on an answer, though. Guess they're slow, are they normally slow at responding?

OH, rates have dropped, has anyone else noticed? I told my TA and she's gonna adjust the rates for my guests :)

How low did the rates drop. I have been working with my WC. Her name is Maribel.

She has been putting everything in my file that I am wanting. The only thing that I am frustrated with is the flowers. I wish we could get a better deal on real flowers. I am not a fan of fake flowers but it could be a option for part of the wedding party.

I am wanting flowers at the ceremony down the aisles. Simple flowers in a ball will cost around $110.00 each and that does not include the stands!!!! And it will be carnations not roses. That is riduculous!!! I was told that there will be more options when I get there but I really want to get a feel for the prices. I do have in possession the flower arrangements available but nothing interest me there.

My wedding site will be at the Tuscan. It is located at the far end on the Nuzic side.

Most of our wedding party will be on the Sunrise side . Since we have a lot of young people, I think they would prefer that side. There is a lot of action...Plus the reception will be in the ballroom on the Sunrise side. So we will start off on the Nuzic and end up on the Sunrise side. I am thinking about using the event planners that Moon Palace uses for decorations of the ballroom. We are wanting colors and drapery on the walls.

I also want the monogram on the runners at the ceremony as well as the monogram on the wall in the ballroom. We decided that June is too hot to have the reception outside so that is why I am spending a little more on a more formal reception. we are not having a at home reception. we are expecting around 80 people to attend our wedding in Cancun. I am using an outside photographer too. I believe that the pictures are the lasting memories of that day so I want someone that will create that moment to last forever. Anyone else get flower quotes outside the packages?

I was really wanting the fireworks but what I have heard, it is not worth the money.

My wedding ceremony will take place at 5pm and the cocktails will be at 6pm and dinner at 700pm.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
