Expect not so great reviews from me on the resort's wedding department.

 

Wish me luck! (If I wasn't bloated from the heat and drinks, maybe I could get married in my white bikini? Maybe not...)

On the way to the rehearsal dinner the WC had a golf cart pick us up from the room to the terrace.  And after the wedding she took us in a golf cart back to our room.  Our guest were always able to find a golf cart or get on a shuttle.

Yes we are both Indian and we will be doing a Sikh ceremony. I haven't figured out exactly how we are going to do it, but I am almost positive I will be flying in an Indian preist to perform the ceremony. This is probably one of my biggest worries as I have not got this organized yet. My plan is to have the ceremony in the Tucan Gazebo and the resort already said they should be able to cover the floor in that Gazebo so we can sit on the floor during the ceremony.

 

Are you having the traditional ceremony? How are you pulling it off?

 

I think my next biggest concern after reading this thread, is that I should get my locations booked asap. I have only been talking to my TA and shes at MP right now to scope out the place for me, but I should probably find out who my on-site WC is, so I can start planning the deatils with her.

Yep, we're both Indian too and are having a traditional Hindu ceremony. We're flying our priest down with us. We're getting married in the Tucan Gazebo... having chairs set up. I'm hoping to have Zuniga build me a stage (for our mandap) on top of the marble table that pre-exists in the gazebos... it's about 3 ft high, so we'd have to build the stage on top of it, or around it... that's the last part of the decor I'm doing with Zuniga because it's going to be a headache to figure out :)

 

We're having a few events:

 

Thursday night: Welcome Beach Party/Mehndi party (I'm flying down a hair/makeup/mehndi person)

Friday night: Garba

Saturday: Baraat, Ceremony, Indian Lunch, Cocktail Hour, Reception

 

We're also doing a traditional baraat... so right now MP has said only Horse & Carriage... the carriage is kinda weak for this, so I'm really hoping I can get my fiance on horseback for this. We're working on it. Otherwise, I found another company in Cancun that has a horse they've used for baraat's in the past... so I might just suck up the outside vendor fee and bring in that horse. We'll see. For the music, we might have to have a CD/iPod, and we're still debating about bringing 1-2 dhol players with us... TBD.

 

Oh, the company that has a horse, has Sikh musicians too that they know of... in case you're interested. We're flying in our shehnai players.

 

The #1 reason we picked MP is because they are allowing us to bring in an Indian caterer (without having to pay the outside vendor fee). I worked this into my wedding contract so there was no debate later. If you decide you want Indian food, I can PM you the details/menu. Let me know.

Wow you have done so much research! I think your ceremony and your other traditional events will turn out very well as you seem to have it really well organized.

 

I have heard the mention of Zuniga many times on this site but I am still a little confused about their services. When I start looking into decor/setup, will my WC tell me to contact them? Or are they separate from the resort decor/setup?

 

We are getting the horse and carriage as well. I want my fiance to get ontop of the horse too, but I wasn't too bothered if they are not able to make that happen. If not we will use it after the ceremony, mostly for pics.
 

I would LOVE to know the contact details for the company the has the Sikh musicians!! THat would add the perfect touch! email - kellyjanda@hotmail.com

 

I thought about the Indian catering (cause I noticed you mentioned it earlier on this thread), but if it is really costly I dont really think it would be worth it for us. If you dont mind me asking, how much are they charging?

Maybe if they aren't so bad, we could get someting simple to bring the taste of India in mexico, like some Indian sweets! (esp since everyone on here says the deserts dont taste good)

 

We actually have a Dhol, and will be taking it with us. My brother knows how to play it, although he could definately use some practice. Too bad we arent there at the same time because my brother could have just  played for your wedding as well.

 

We will be doing a maiyan night for both the bride and grooms side. They will take place at the same time but at different locations at the resort. Although I still need to book my locations. We wanted both sides to at least have one event of their own, and the maiyan is the perfect event to do it at. We will be bringing all the "props" from here.

Any suggestions on the locations for these events?

We definately want them outside. I heard that the Carribean terrace is beautiful, but I would rather not spend the extra to have that location, esp, when its not going to be used for everyone in our party at the same time. What are the next two best outdoor locations?

Our reception will be in the ballroom. I believe someone mentioned that the Star ballroom is the nicer of the two. But is there any real difference?

 

I emailed Marvin for centerpieces, and for what I like, it ranges from about $65-120. Is that a reasonable price for centerpeices? What is the price range for MP?

 

Also, does anyone know their nightly entertainment for the week? I know someone mentioned there is a Beach Party of Thursdays, but would anyone know what happens on what days? I want to do one nightly show with all the guests, but I need to plan which day will work best based on the entertainment.

 

Also, Michelle Farina's is my Miama contact, and she wont tell me who my onsite WC is? She said that I will be contacted 3 months prior. I know alot of you ladies were able to find out, but how can I force her to tell me?

 

Thanks!!
