      Here is the e-mail from my WC explaining the upgrade to the reception.  THis is confusing me.  Has anyone else opted out of the cocktail hour and upgraded to the reception. 

      My questions to you ladies are in RED.

       

       

      Hola Victoria,

       

      Your wedding is at 5pm.

      Complimentary package with white lilies as your bouquet.

      One tier cake. 

      Your wedding ceremony is set on a gazebo, but we do have the beach option too. Let me know.

      If you get 30 rooms nights you will get a cocktail included for 1 hour. We are at 54 nights.

      If you decide to upgrade you cocktail to have a buffet service for 2 hours. It will be 360usd. Please note extra hours are 60usd per table, however upgrade is $15usd per person.Does this mean I pay $60 per table AND $15 per head. 

      Please choose the buffet option from the menu attached. Let me know.

      The sound system for connect your Ipod for 2 hours it will be 220usd, if more hours it will be $385usd. Please note if we do add 2 extra hour the total charge for the reception will be $480usd. Let me know.

      The hours outside terrace for the buffet will be from 6 to 10pm. You wedding is at 5pm.

      We do not accept outside vendors. If this is a friend of you he must be staying at the resort for be able to take professional pictures in you wedding.

       

       

      Grrrr this is SO confusing to me.  Each time I ask I feel as though she gives me a different answer.

        Sorry I can't help you with these questions (her response is very confusing!), but while I was at MP I did take a couple of pictures for you of the maracas they have there.  As someone else commented before, the 2 for $5 ones are nice.  The closeup picture is of the 2 for $5 ones.  The ones that are 2 for $10 are pretty much the same just a little bigger.  The less expensive ones seemed plenty big.  Sorry I can't be of much help with your reception questions, but I would guess when she says "If you get 30 rooms nights you will get a cocktail included for 1 hour," she just can't guarantee that you get the free cocktail hour until the guests are actually there.  If you have 54 nights you will get the cocktail hour.

          Thank you so, so much! I'm definitely going to get those Maracas.  

           

          I know that she's saying that we definitely get the 1 cocktail hour because we have over 30 nights.  BUT she's saying that we can upgrade.  I asked her if we could opt out of the cocktail hour and just do the reception and she said no big deal.

          I just don't understand the prices for this.

          I"m guessing that it's just a Flat fee, then a table fee, THEN you have to pay per head! That's crazy!!!

              I'm assumig you are refering to a Catholic ceremony right? This is what it says on our contract. Either way Catholic wedding require Pre Cana no matter where you are. What they have you do usually depends on the parish. For ours we could chose out of 3 options: 1) Attend 7 weekly meetings with other engaged/married couples 2) Attend a weekend "Engaged Encounter" retreat 3) Go to at least 3 counseling sessions with a counselor that they designate. We ended up doing the counseling sessions...

               

               

              Documents required for Catholic weddings:   Home address and occupations (bride & groom)   Couples must make arrangements at least six months prior to the date of marriage and meet all sacramental requirements.   The Catholic Church makes certain requests of the bride and groom to help the couple with their spiritual preparation. There is no uniform set of rules for all catholic wedding preparations. Therefore, please check with your local parish priest to find out what your dioceses requires for Catholic weddings.   Once all requirements have been completed, your local church needs to send these documents directly to the following address and send us a copy for our records:   Padre Benito Aguilar Blvd Kukulcan KM 3.5 Zona Hotelera 77500 Cancun Q.Roo (998)8493003 baguilar@palaceresorts.com   Important: The priest has final say on granting official permission for the wedding to move forward after seeing the paperwork. Palace Resorts does not have authority over religious regulations. (NO EXCEPTIONS).   Bride and Groom must arrive in Cancun at least three (3) working days (Monday –Saturday) prior to the wedding ceremony to meet with the wedding coordinator and submit all documents. Bride & Groom must be at the resort by check-in time (3:00 PM) or earlier in order to consider day of arrival.   The above refers to a couple that has never been married previously. Please take with you to the resort your marriage certificate or marriage license. If you have been divorced and your marriage was not officially annulled you cannot marry in the Catholic Church.   Catholic weddings in Mexico are not legally binding. All couples must be civilly married prior to the Catholic ceremony. Please inform your wedding coordinator if you are interested in one of our civil wedding packages. Additional charges may apply.   All weddings will be performed in either Spanish or English.   All documents become the property of the Immaculate Conception Chapel, Quintana Roo, Mexico.   Reservations should be made at least 6 months in advance to guarantee preferred wedding date.   Hope that helps!! :)

                      kjanda8,

                       

                      You can rent just the sound equipment with no DJ.  I think that is what we'll be doing.  Come to find out, one of our groomsmen used to be a DJ:)  It's 220.00 for a mic and one speaker.  It does have some mixer as well.  But, it doesn't state how much for the iPod hookup and it doesn't say for how long.
