    ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!!!!

    We are at Moon Palace, getting married tomorrow. The resort is gorgeous. Would be nice if the wedding department hadn't lost my wedding dress. One last chance to find it tomorrow.

     

    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.

              Aholen that is INSANE that they lost your dress! I hope they were able to find it and everything went smooth from there!

                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 -
