We had that cake at our wedding.  I don't recall how many it served though (we just had 40 guests). My wedding colors coordinated with the flowers so I didn't make any changes, but if I recall correctly, I was asked about the colors of the flowers and could have made changes.  As long as you change to flowers in season, I think they're happy to accommodate that request.  Our group actually liked the taste of the cake.  Overall, I'll agree the desserts at MP aren't very good, but we thought the wedding cake we had was good.  I would also note that based on what I've read on this site, the brides that have been most disappointed in their cakes have been the ones that didn't pick a cake design from the MP catalogue and instead brought a picture of a cake they wanted duplicated. 

 

Here's my summary of our cake from my wedding review:

 

We decided to upgrade the cake because we liked the design of one of the larger cakes. Everyone thought the cake was beautiful & tasted good too. We got vanilla with strawberries for one layer & chocolate with chocolate filling for another layer, & the top layer was tres leches (milk cake).  However, I didnâ€t talk to one person who tried the tres leches (even though when I went back at the end of the ceremony and asked for a piece of tres leches to go, there wasnâ€t any left).  Overall, Iâ€m glad we upgraded to the larger cake.

Also, does anyone know how many people this cake serves? Thanks!

Shan-Sorry, have been away from the computer for awhile!  We got more than we needed with 5 hours for the day of the wedding.  We definitely could have gotten away with 4.  Since our wedding was pretty small, we didn't really need a lot of photos at the reception. 

 

The last time I looked at his prices, they were:

 

2 hours = $650

4 hours = $1300

5 hours = $1625

8 hours= $2600

10 hours = $3200

 

That was back in August of last year, so they may have changed since then.

 

We posted all of our pictures to a Shutterfly share site (it has pictures from our and a couple of our guests' cameras, too, but the professional photos are in their own albums).  If you are interested, the website is andrewandamandaweddingphotos.shutterfly.com.  There is a wedding album and a TTD album, Sascha was the photographer for both.

That is what I expected to spend- I dont want to go over $2000, but that sounds like a good deal.  Did you get all the pictures you needed in the 5 hours the day of the wedding?

Do you have your photos yet??? I would LOVE to see them!

Thanks Mocha! It was a great. I'm bummed...I emailed our photographer and she told me another 6 - 8 weeks for the photos. UGH!  I got the vase for my sand ceremony at Hobby Lobby.  I looked all over for a vase with a cork. I had each guest drop a sea shell into the bottom of the vase before the sand ceremony....so I needed a little bit bigger vase.

Thanks Leigh! It looks so pretty! I think this one is super cute and elegant, so I'm not really intersted in overcomplicating it... everything else in our wedding is super over-complicated!!


I was also debating about getting a monogram cake topper or getting a custom one made with Indian clothes... but I'm leaning towards the monogram, yous looks so cute. I like it!  Also, I'm wondering if we give them flowers (from my bridesmaids bouquets) if they'll charge us to just swap 'em out, I'm hoping they won't since we already paid for the flowers.

The cake.  I'm not a food snob, but I will say everyone who went to the Moon Palace with our group agreed the desserts were not good.  The cake tastes wet...like if you smushed it water would come out.  I like cake...regular mix out of the box here, I'm not picky. I couldn't finish my desserts there. My wedding cake wasn't any different.  I had one bite.  For the complimentary package you get two choices...either the one with ribbon and flowers on top or seashells.  As for picking out your cake....when you meet with your wedding coordinator she will show you pictures of different cakes and then you chose what flavor. We picked marble, but it was white cake when we cut into it.

 

Maybe I was at MP the week the cake baker was gone? lol

again with the new cake flavors! I was told choc, vanilla, strawberry, lemon, cheese, and carrot!

I would suggest sticking to one of the options they have b/c obviously they can do that well as we hope! I am upgrading my cake b/c I have 90 guests.

 

For the flavors, I didn't know there was a fruit flavor. Is that fresh fruit? Kalena only told me about Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, marble and cheese. Um what the heck is cheese? I hope cheesecake but that still doesn't make sense. I ended up going with Chocolate, vanilla and marble.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
