    I have been told by the resort that the transfer is $10/pp, but someone mentioned that if you are staying for 7 nights, then it will be free. Where or who told you that information?

      Has anyone heard from Aholen about her dress?  I hope they found it for her.

        No, I was wondering that too... I really hope everything worked out for her.

          I put a bunch of my answers in red in your quote below:

          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? So Zuniga is MP's decorator (they're a seperate company, but MP doesn't charge an outside vendor fee to use them). I was given Zuniga's contact info a while ago and am working with them myself. Most of us work with Katie (katie@decocancun.com). So you can work with them and figure out all of your decor seperate from your WC.

           

          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. Do you have the red/gold decor for the horse? Since we're only a week apart, maybe we could split that cost and I could use it and then just leave it with your WC at MP? What do you think?
           

          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'll actually just copy you on the e-mail with my contact and let her know you're interested. Then she can give you all of the details.

           

          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? It'll totally depend on what you want... we're getting a half of our Garba menu, full Indian Lunch, full Indian cocktail hour, and full Indian reception for $75/head. We ended up picking out more items then we wanted, so we're probably going to cut down our menus and hopefully get a cheaper price. If you just want a few items, I'm sure it wouldn't be too expensive. And they negotiate! Every time they've given me a price, I've went back to them with the price I want and have gotten it. This caterer is the same contact as the Sikh musicians, so you can ask them directly.

          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. That would've been awesome! But oh well, my Fiance's family friend is an amazing Dhol player, but we aren't sure if he's invited to the wedding yet... haha, so we'll see how that works out.

           

          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? I've heard the Carribean terrace is nice too... how many people are you planning to have? That'll influence the venues you choose.

          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? So, the Star ballroom is definitely nicer than the Tortugas ballroom... we're using the Tortugas ballroom for our Garba & our Reception... unfortunately, the Star ballroom is occupied by an NCAA basketball tournament during our wedding weekend, so we didn't really have a choice. It sucks, but I just have to get over it.

           

          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? Again, it totally depends on what you want. Zuniga runs about the same.

           

          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? So I worked it into my contract... I told MP that I wouldn't sign the contract for the Room block or the wedding unless they guaranteed to give me a WC ASAP. So I got mine several months ago... but I do understand the WCs are SUPER busy so I try not to bug her too often :)  Just keep pushing on your Miami contact saying you need to book your sites and they should let you.

           

          Thanks!!

            My group paid $11/person and from what I was told, the reason it was free was b/c the wedding was booked through a MP membership for the transfer to be included.

              The contact for the spa was Karla. Her email is kestrada@leblancsparesort.com

               

              I had the best experience with Doris on the NIzuc side for my hair and makeup. She did exactly what I asked and she didn't make me look like a drag queen and was very natural for the wedding. Even through the sweat and wind, my makeup help up. Also, I have issues with getting raccoon eyes no matter if I use waterproof or not and she prepped my face so well that it looked great through the whole day!

              Have their been better reviews for the Nizuc or Sunrise, esp for hair and makeup?

                I asked this question back in May or June 2010 for my wedding last year, here was my WC's response:

                 

                Gerber daises bouquets are $95 USD. We can have them in orange, yellow & hot pink.

                 

                None of MP flowers are cheap!  I ended up using fake flowers for the bridesmaids & used the free bouquet for my flowers.

                  at the bottom of my contract its says people staying 7 nights or more have included "transfers" and then at the bottom of the hotel room confirmation that people paid off balances to their rooms... it's also there... and then the credit card authorization form that you can use to fax or email your payments, it's on there too :)

                  and the transfer is $24 round trip last I heard, per person.

                    I'm really curious if someone has the answer about the resort daily shows/entertainment. I tried finding it on MP's website, but couldn't find it.  I want to put this into our OOT bags so people know the schedule...

                     

                    Also, we're doing a beach party with fire show on Thursday night... but I've also heard that MP does a beach party with fire show on Thursday nights... so I'm curious where and when MP's is to see if we should change our event to something different... which sucks. Ugh!

                      Oh my goodness! Well I guess thats cheaper than $120 but still pricey. Those are exactly my wedding colors too. Where did you find your fake flowers, maybe I can try that route?

                       

                      Thank you so much!

                      Nicole
