    Let me look into the horse decor. There was another Indian MP bride who got married in April that bought the horse decor and then decided not to do a baraat... so she told me she'd sell me the decor. I'll ask her how much it is.

     

    For the Garba, I'm doing a bangles theme... so I'm bringing a lot of pink/orange/blue bangles & of course, we'll be bringing dandiyas. For the reception, we're doing a peacock theme and are bringing a ton of peacock feathers (I may also bring table runners for this, still TBD). If you're thinking about similar themes, we can totally split on cost for any of it!

     

    We'll probably also bring a lot of stuff for our pooja, but I'm not sure what exactly... and I'm also not sure if you guys use the same stuff in your ceremony... but we can work that out later. Not sure if we'll be bringing anything else...

    I also have this document that has some venues and capacities (I also e-mailed it to you)... this should give you a good start.

    On that same note, are you bringing other decor, prop's, etc. that I could split costs on??

     

    I am estimating that we will have 100 people. We booked the wedding 3 weeks ago, and I already have 67 people on booked flights. No one has booked their rooms yet. My TA will be doing that for my guests.

    But as we will be having the maiya parties separately, we will have around 50 people at the outdoor venues. Any locations come to mind?

      I love the themes!!

      I may be interested in the peacock stuff! Let me know how the costs of things work out.These are details that we can definately work out a little later. Once I have my themes sorted, I'll let you know.  

      I really want my wedding on a strict budget, so I will have to be selective on what I want to spend money on.

        Makes sense. My mom's going to India again late August-early October... so I'm going to tell her then what to buy (in terms of how many bangles and peacock feathers). So if you decide on either of the themes I'm doing, we can certainly work something out.


        Yeah, we're on a strict budget too. Luckily, I've been able to negotiate a lot of our prices down for things, so we haven't gone over on anything yet. But I know once we get closer, all of the last minute unexpected expenses will pop up... that's what I'm trying my hardest to avoid!

          The event board for the sunrise lobby is between the Bugambilias and Gondola restaurants. They also post a daily "tonight's event" poster at the main entrance to the lobby. For the pool side events, there is also an entertainment schedule posted daily. As a hint, "crazy time" is usually a drinking contest.

          sometimes travel agents build the transfers into the price, other times they do not.  I like to give my clients the option of getting transfers so I will let them choose to add or not.  I don't like to assume that all will need the same transfers.  alot of times in groups, people will be travelling the same dates/flight times so instead of doing individual transfers it may be cheaper and nicer to do a private group transfer just for that group.

            The show/entertainment schedule seems to change on a weekly basis.  There are Weekly programs that are printed and in the lobby's.  We were at Moon Palace at the end of May.  I still have a copy of the program for the week.  I would be more than happy to scan it and post it here, or email it to you.  Here is the quick rundown of daily entertainment for the week May 22 - May 28

             

            Sunday - Mayan Night

            Monday - Tribute to Micheal Jackson

            Tuesday - Live Band / Retro Show

            Wednesday - Fiesta Mexicana

            Thursday - Break Dance

            Friday - Magic Circus

            Saturday - Las Vegas Show

            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!

                My mom actually found the flowers for my BM bouquets at Michael's (on clearance).  They were small white roses in pots, but she pulled them out of the pots, added stems & made them into bouquets.  I had looked at getting Real Touch flowers, but since we planned the whole wedding in about 3 months, it was too late to get custom orders from the places I found.  If I had known about Marvin delivering flowers to the resort, I probably would have gone with his bouquets.  I was very happy with the free bouquet from MP, but I just wasn't going to pay the amount they were charging for BM bouquets even though I only needed 2. Good luck!

                Thank you so much!

                  Hey girls,

                   

                  Just wanted to give you a quick update. We were able to find my dress, thank goodness! Around 8AM the day of the wedding, I called my mom nearly hysterical, and we went together to the lobby to inquire. Kalena had indeed let people know that it needed to be found, so after talking to several people, we learned that it had been located. They said it would be delivered to my room, but I wanted to confirm that it was the right one. The guest services guy called the guy who had it, and of course their description was oh-so-helpful: "It's long and white." Ha! Anyway, it was the right dress. Turns out that they had delivered it somewhere in Nizuc. Who knows where or why. Ugh! Thankfully, the rest of the day was wonderful. I will be posting details, pics, a planning thread, and review when we return next week.

                   

                  One lesson we've learned is that you can not depend on any information that you're given here. One person will say something, another will say the opposite. Very frustrating. The resort, however, is still amazing. I would just recommend that you either come in super organized, or with a "whatever will be, will be" attitude. Anything in between will = stress for you! And I would never have my dress pressed here again unless it was really bad. Definitely do it right away if you do want it pressed to make sure there's time to get it back (or find it!) before the big day. Absolutely ludicrous!
