I dont mind if they cant come just wish they were honest and told me rather than me finding out from others.bann.gif
ohhh not too long before me! i hate that to, i've had people do that! are all your guests staying at the MP? i negotiated from 20 to 30% on external guests, but so far no-one's staying externally!

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

the Catholic chapel looks gorge!

oh right, i better get onto that then!

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?

I'm working on my formal invites now and want to include an optional group activity for people to rsvp on, how do I go about doing this? Should I wait until a WC is assigned to me or be proactive and contact the Miami WC? Also, I noticed a lof of you girls with wedding dates a month or two after me already have your gazebos/terraces book and I still haven't, again..should I be proactive about this?

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.

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
