      So, just a little vent. I get married in about 3 1/2 months. I asked two friends to be bridesmaids and recently just got a text....a TEXT, from one of them saying that she isnt coming!!! She has lied to me for the past 6 months saying that she booked and got her airfare. meanwhile, I bought her dress for her, bought many gifts to put in her welcome bag and lended her money. where that money is, WHO KNOWS! when I asked her why she lied to me she told me to "Fu*k off" and hung up on me. SUPER Classy.

       

      At this point it is too late to ask anyone else to stand in so I am left with just one girl, a dress that I cant return and gifts that I guess i will have to keep. I am hoping that is the only drama I will have LOL.

       

      Life goes on!

        This was my game plan. I paid 9 nights myself because two families backed out about a week and a half before go time. It was much cheaper to do this obviously then pay 400 per table per hour for the tons of events I had

        Just a thought, maybe somewhat extreme...however, maybe booking a room for the 6 nights would cost less than what you would pay for a reception?  I don't know how the math would work out.  But, there are extra benefits that go along with the 60 nights (including free nights for bride and groom).  It may be worth looking into booking the cheapest possible room for 6 nights and 'eat' that cost, in order to get the other freebies that go along with it??

          I believe the Lanterns are plugged in.  I never asked, but I do know we had an entire strand go out so I would assume they are just essentially Christmas lights with.  I should have ask for a refund or partial credit.  It did annoy me a bit. We also got square table candles and steps with candles on them (there are pics on my review on the MP page) but they were battery operated which was nice b/c with the wind that evening they would have gone out instantly

            Unfortunately this is notcheaper.

            We pay $148 per person per night.or $260 per single room per night.   Because we have 54 nights already we do get one free private cocktail hour.  I opted out of the cocktail hour and upgraded to the reception for about $300.  I will pay $60/table for each additional hour after the two hours that are provided.  So that will cost me about $600 total. Plus the $385 for the ipod set up. (Which I'd have to pay reguardless.)

            I will have my guests meet at a public bar for cocktail hour. (My WC wasn't happy about this BUT  I didn't see paying extra for this when most of my guests will be in pictures anyway. )

            I hope that this is correct and she's not going to throw some surprise costs at me when we're down there.

              Rae, don't worry about your guests heading to one of the bars. We had both cocktail hour and dinner reception, and in between our guests still went to the Nizuc lobby bar for drinks.

               

              But I really think you should consider paying for the 6 nights, look at the calculations:

               

              Cost: $260 * 6 = 1560

               

              Savings: $600 for reception + 4 nights refunded ($148 * 2 *4) = 1784

               

              Plus, maybe you can convince her to throw in the cocktail hour. So it might cost you more upfront, but in the end you will save some money.

                Yeah, but with the 54 nights booked, she is going to get 2 comped nights anyway.

                 

                60 nights booked gets you 4 comped nights.  So, she is only getting 2 extra free nights, not 4.

                  Omg that is crazy!! I was diappointed I spend a few thousand dollars when a few of my fiends got married and they told me they "couldn't commit" to being my bridesmaids..but now I am thinking I am so lucky I didn't waste my time and effort on false hopes :( sorry that happened to you but at least you get to start a new FRESH chapter with the people that really mean the most to you!

                      Hi Girls!

                       

                      I'm getting married on September 5, 2011 at The Moon Palace.  Only 38 more days to go and I'm so excited!  I made my own Save the Date cards, and I got the idea from this website.  I can't remember from which bride, but they turned out great!!!  I was going to make my own invites, but ran out of time.  IMG00303-20110331-1550 (A0504187).JPGIMG00302-20110331-1550 (A0504191).JPGIMG00296-20110331-1542 (A0504185).JPGIMG00297-20110331-1542 (A0504186).JPGIMG00301-20110331-1543 (A0504189).JPG
