    On one of my contracts it says that the group promotion for "free cocktail with booking 5 rooms or 15 room nights) or more" it says that the promo doesn't apply if you choose a complimentary ceremony. 

     

    My TA is in the process of sorting this out.  Anyone else experience this?

      DiamondGirl,

       

      I don't believe that you can use your credit for decor!  MP partners with Zuniga/Deco Cancun which is an outside vendor but check into it.  Many MP brides bring their own to save on money and to have the exact color.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed though :)

        rae12vb, I'm glad your BIG day was a success!!  Congrats on becoming a Mrs.


        You will not be able to use your credits to upgrade the complimentary.  Unfortunately, they will not make any exceptions with this.

        There are MANY other things to use your credits for here.  It all depends on how many days you're staying.

        We stayed 8 nights.  This gave us $300 credits to the spa, which we used all of and then had to pay cash for our couples massage.  My FI and his groomsmen golfed and used their credits.  Many people got the tequila that you can use your credits for.  There are nice creams in the spa that you can buy with your credits.  You can also do many tours.

        DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR ROOM WITH THE CREDITS.  Chances are they will probably do that for you anyway.  

        Some of our guests also did the lobster dinner and liked it.

        I'd advise you to buy a few table runners and or chair sashes.  Buy some decor to put on the tables.  We used our bridesmaids bouquets for the center pieces and it looked great.

        Also be flexible.  We were supposed to have our reception outside on the Tucan Terrace and they moved us to the ballroom.  I was not happy about this at first but my WC said there was a chance of rain.  All of my guests really preferred being in the ballroom because there was AC!

        Everyone had a fabulous time!

              Just got a response back from my TA:

               

              It took them awhile to get back to me.  I received the approval to remove that from your contract.  See attached J

              Hope this helps!!  Good news for me~

               

              On another note, anyone been to MP in June?  How is the wind?  I'm having a beach ceremony but I always pictured having "soft beach waves" with my hair down. =(  I'd be so disappointed if it was overly windy and I'd have to do it up...

                No unfortunately they only allow a reservation for up to 10 max. Thanks for the suggestion though :)

                  I don't remember anyone ever being able to use palace money for upgrades. You can only use them for packages.

                   

                  As for the wind, because of where MP is located, there is always a breeze. That's why there is so much seaweed. I wore my hair done and it was blown around but not horrible. They did tuck my veil into the back of my dress during the ceremony though.

                    Hey ladies ~I'm thinking about bringing my own table overlays, runners and chair stashes. Anyone know what sizes in each to use?

                     

                    I feel funny asking Deco what the measurments are so I can bring my own :D.

                     

                    I'm having three round tables and two 2 seater tables.
