Yeah I would think that the seashells are easier to carry and lighter...but maybe not...actually you may find seashells in downtown cancun or some tourist trap if you are able to get to one before your wedding...

I am going through a travel agent to book everything and she is the one contacting our miami coordinator but I really want to be able to contact them myself with my questions, but she wants everything to go through her.  Does anyone have this issue?  Also, has anyone already booked which gazebo they will be getting married in?  I asked if I could request one and she told me I had to wait until right before the wedding.  I don't want to be married on the beach so I REALLY want to make sure I can get a gazebo!!!

How many people are you having at your wedding? I am having such a hard time not "planning" everything until 60 days out. Perhaps you guys will know. Do you know what tables you get included in the unlimited group events? Lily at Deco Cancun mentioned that MP has square tables that fit 16 but pictures show round tables.... I am really wanting to use the bridesmaids bouquets as centerpieces with candles to cut costs... but I don't know

Oh my gosh, same problem however I told her that I was just going to contact her and that I would CC the travel agent in the emails. I am having the same problem, I love to plan everything out and have it all done... when are you getting married?

Kic-- 

 

the group benefits at the MP are great, if you book 25 rooms or 75 room nights you get unlimited group events and your stay for free! That is why we choose moon palace too! I have heard that it is amazing and I too fell in love with the pictures online. When are you getting married?

Chancey, when you signed your contract, did it come directly from Miami or did it come through your TA. My TA originally said she wanted to do all this too, but I just ignored her and emailed them directly.  If you don't know who is assigned to you, just call the general wedding office number and ask.  I have emailed my Miami coordinator at least a dozen times by now and she has provided some great information.  I asked if I could reserve my reception site and she said yes.  I would suggest you just call.

We are getting married on August 11, 2011.  We got our contract through our TA so I didn't get to see who our coordinator was  sad.gif  I like that I can e-mail her my questions and she asks the coordinator for me but there are some things she thinks she knows so she wont ask!  I think I am going to call the wedding office number and get the information from them!  That is a great idea, I didn't think of doing that! 

 

I am usually a procrastinator on some things but I am NOT going to procrastinate on my wedding!!!!  It is hard enough that you don't get to see anything until you get there but, to have to wait that long to get to talk to anyone! Aghh, it is frustrating!  If my TA doesn't like the CC idea I just wont tell her that I am e-mailing them!!!

 

Thanks!

Haha!! My TA is the same way.  She always says they she's done so many weddings there and she knew exactly how it works. I'll give her that, she has given me great advice.  She's even recommended some outside vendors for me, etc.  But for the things she doesn't know, like price lists and menus, etc.  I just email Miami directly.  It's never really been an issue b/c I didn't give her the option.  I'm sure it will be fine if you do the same.  I am usually such a procrastinator, but I really can't be with this.  Budget wise, I really have to know the cost of most things before 70 days prior to the wedding.  It's fine with me if I can't set the exact location and flower choices, etc, but I have to have a good idea of how much it's all going to cost me or I won't  be able to force myself to save for it.

I booked with a travel agent but she would cc me on all communication with my Miami coordinator. I have always had the info on my contact in Miami. I email her for pictures of different areas and to reserve my ceremony and reception locations. I never really contact my TA for anything wedding related. My TA did do a site visit recently so she will sending me more picutres of the resort, but all questions I send directly to my MC (miami coordinator)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
