    I received an email from the wedding dept. at MP and she wrote in the email I HAVE to wait until 3 months prior to pick the places I want to have the wedding and reception at. I believe the woman I have been in contact with works out of Miami..Does anyone know how I can get ahold of someone at the actual resort?!

        Somewhere on here someone posted something with bridal wedding day packages for the salon. Of course, I never downloaded it and can't find it anywhere. But it is only $86 for hair and makeup. That was confirmed when I made the appointment and also that was all I was charged. I think MIL paid the same.

         

        We didn't have to pay extra for our private events. I was worried, since we only had 70 nights booked through our membership. We had another 14 nights booked through tour operators. We got our refund a few days ago and it was only for 4 nights. If we had to pay for the cocktail and private event, it would have been another $2K so I'm really glad they never charged us for our cocktail hour or private reception. I though about complaining and asking for 7 nights credit, but I would rather take the 4 and not have them catch onto the free events.

          Rodrigo usually answers with the information you need. Just post your problem/question with your wedding number and he'll help you out. He might even get you in contact with your Cancun WC.

            Do you really tip the photographer? I feel like he's the owner so he's getting all the money unlike the DJ or videographer. Also I am paying for his room to stay the night.

              I had to back the next day and tip Alberto for doing my hair and makeup. We didn't tip the videographer because he took off right after the wedding ceremony. Make sure to carry a few bills for tipping golf cart drivers. My family took one to the ceremony, my sister had one rush her back to the reception, we had one take us from the gazebo to the lobby for pictures and we had to have one rush us across the resort to make it to the ceremony as well. I felt bad because none of us had any money at one point and I gave the guy a rose from my bouquet. And when we got to the reception I had to track down my dad for tip money!

               

              I would also make a list of the little details you want to include. I forgot the boutonnieres for my dad and ring bearer, the passed starfish for my bouquet, and my garters.

                That's BS. I booked my locations 5 months in advance. They say 3 months which is what they should do to be fair but they still book ahead of 3 months. I know this b/c another bride on her I friended was upset to find out a few locations she wanted for her wedding was booked back in November when her wedding was in May. I say you keep pressing them.

                  Yeah I am paying $86 for both of mine too but like I said they changed the prices and Karla from the spa told me and my bridal party that she was only honoring the 2010 prices till the end of March so we booked immediately. For the brides who haven't booked yet. Start booking b/c the salon fills up fast. My bridal party is split up between both salons and different times. I hope I gae myself enough time to get ready!
