We added extra flower arrangements at the gazebos entarance and they were beautiful and huge. We had the horsedrawn carriage after the ceremony, instead of before, so my daughter and her husband could ride in it and get photos. The fireworks were a hit and made for beautiful photos. We had David Pena, a resort photographer, for the photos and he was amazing. We paid extra for the cd of all of the photos taken that day. We had a one hour cocktail/hors d'ourves and paid extra for a sound system so we could dance. They did a rhuma for their first dance and it was wonderful! we also paid for 1 extra hour of DVD for the reception--well worth it! Dinner at ElGreco - filet and shrimp - delicious! (The extra flower arrangements we had at gazebo entrance were brought to restaurant table for decoration while we ate and then taken to our Presidential Suite entry room table. They lasted the full 2 weeks we were there.) 3 tier white fondant cake with blue scrolls, vanilla cake with fruit filling. We did pay extra to have fresh flowers that matched brides bouquet on cake (blue irises, blue hydrangeas, ivory roses). Everything went as planned and could not have been better!
We received the photos, cd and dvd before we left for home. Here are a few of her photos I put on shutterfly:

Ok so I'm a newbie and I don't know how to e-mail you (without it being a private message).  Could you e-mail me what you learned on your visit at bojanglesgirl@hotmail.com?  Thanks

i just came back from a site visit at moon palace.  my fiance were pretty much all set with having our wedding at MP (because of the catholic chapel), but so many things happened over the wkend that i don't think we are going to end up getting married here.  anyway, i got SO MUCH helpful information from here that i figured i should pass it on. 

 

i have been REALLY lucky because both my coordinators have been great at responding pretty quickly. 

 

carilis felipe has been awesome.  i had received two different group block rates; the cheaper rate from a TA and she was able to talk to her supervisor to meet that rate.  she responded quickly to ALL my questions; most things i knew already after reading through this forum but i wanted to get it in writing from her (which i definitely suggest).  we already had a deposit on our ceremony (11.04.11), but will most likely be cancelling it and getting our money back (so i hope that goes smoothly).  i even requested a specific site wedding planner (kalena arroniz) and she worked to get her assigned to my wedding (1+ years in advance).

 

kalena arroniz was GREAT.  she didn't respond as quickly some times (probably the longest i waited was one week?), but when she couldn't her assistant (karen, i think) did.  i got in touch with her early because we had planned this site and had a meeting set up with her so that we can go over wedding details. i also requested a menu and cake tasting which she set up (she even let us taste 2 different buffet options and you should see the size of the cake tastings!!!).  she walked us through the resort to the different ceremony and reception locations and helped us finalize our selections for our cocktail hr and reception.  she answered ALL my questions (i have it typed up and left it with her, but i have copies so if any of you need it.. let me know) about the ceremony, cocktail hr, and reception.  honestly, i REALLY loved kalena just from our first mtg.  she was very attentive to us through email and at our mtg and was very helpful.  if the experience with the resort itself wasn't as bad, then i would have had my heart set with MP just to have her as my coordinator.

 

if any of you are having a difficult time with your coordinators, i would highly suggest asking if you can switch to carilis and kalena!! :)

 

if anyone needs pictures of the resort or the document of questions i asked kalena, please email me and i will send it to you.  i don't go on here often (well, i will be on here more now since i basically have to start planning from scratch to look for a new resort), but i don't really like using the private messages option.  email is much more easy and quicker: damitaprilurcool at gmail dot com.

 

hope this helps and good luck all of you!!!

It's interesting that so many of you have had issues with the Miami office, but loved your WC on site. We had completely the opposite experience!!!

 

Hang in there! I know how frustrating it is!!

At this point they are trying deny me the 7 nights comp stay that i would be earning and saying that they won't apply it to my honeymoon unless I pay first.

WHICH IS COMPLETELY NOT what was told to me. they said I didn't have to do the refund thing and they would just pay ahead for me once I earn the 75 room nights.

They also originally told me that I could split it between two resorts...NOW I can't. And I need 2 nights at MP and 5 at Sun palace. When I told them that I'd pay for the 2 ahead for MP and just credit the 5 for my honeymoon...they are saying I have to pay the 5 nights at Sun Palace, then I get a check 6-8weks later...and also I asked them to send me the other 2 nights worth in the mail... and NO, I don't get the other 2 nights refunded to me.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
