    Thank you!  My dress was pretty much the deciding factor between Mexico and a stay at home wedding, I just thought it belonged in Mexico and not Omaha!  

     

    Wow!  there are soo many things that I haven't even begun to think about!  I probably wouldn't have thought to ask for the menu beforehand.  I'm not too worried about flower or cake choices until I get there.  But anything that is an added expense I definitely want to know what to expect ASAP.  This forum is great, I never think of some of these details until I read some of the posts!   I love it!!!! 

     

    I think I will just go around my TA and talk with my MC.  I should just tell her that everyone is going through her to book their trip, but I should be able to contact the wedding coordinator to get information for the wedding.  I think that is fair!

      I'm dealing directly with Palace Resorts, because we are members and I have to say that the brides on this forum are much more helpful with providing information. Everything my Palace WC has sent I had already downloaded on here. So my advice is to get your post count up so  you can open attachments.

       

      Blue&StarfishBride - I think MP has both round and long tables based on the pictures posted by other members. It depends on how many people you have and what setup you want. As far as I have discovered, the unlimited events include just basic white on white linens, a buffet or plated meal and an open bar. I'm sure that you can get square tables, but they are probably ore costly. From what I've seen the fees from DecoCancun are ridiculous! I guess that's why they don't want anyone to be prepared. Figure that once you are there you will upgrade everything and not worry about the cost.

        DecoCancun is Crazy Pricey! Have you found a better priced vendor?

          For extra decor, I am bringing table overlays, napkins, chair sashes, freeze dried roses, lanterns, parasols and fans. I am just going to have a couple of guests or even bridal party set up. I don't think there is much else I want to add because MP is already so beautiful. I think it will be more cost effective this way, because I can resell the table linens. I figure we'll probably end up with 35 people so it shouldn't be a lot to carry, especially spread out between the bridal party and our parents.

            I am bringing

             

            Chair Sash

            Lanterns/Lights

            Candles

            Starfish for plates
            My Own Centerpieces
            and Dry Rosses.

             

            So i think you and me are on board with just bring it ourself and setting it up? I just can't afford DecoCancuns prices. I guess because I just don't feel like I am getting any value out of it. I will also be sticking my parents with decor to bring down.

                I just don't agree with going home to a huge credit card bill. We're building a life together, not a mountain of debt!

                 

                btw - your website is so cute. What colors are you using for your decor? Have you ordered or sourced anything yet? I also ordered Real Touch flowers to make our bouquets and boutonnieres.

                  Hey ladies just to let you know: my TA recently did a site visit to the Moon Palace. I had her check on the location of the closest Wal-Mart. Its only about 20 minutes away. So we have decided to not pack things like candles that we can pick up there. On our second day we are going to take a Wal-Mart run to pick up any extra things that we need. I just really hate traveling with a lot of baggage, so I like that this is an option. Also if there is something that you see on their website, you can do the ship to store option.

                   

                  There is also a Sams Club in Cancun and one in Playa del Carmen. Hope that helps!

                    Well Since you asked! lol

                     

                    I am doing an all white wedding, with egg plant purple accents.

                     

                    I bought 5 vases identical to the picture below and bought Calla lillys for them. We will be using round tables. I have booked Make Up and Photo so far. I am going with an outside vendor for both. Because that used up a lot of my money. I really had to say no to DecoCancun. We are bring 50 white lanterns, 12'. I bought LED battery lights for them. 12 for $5.00 I think? Just incase we don't have electric where we go. I am going eggplant purple for all the table cloths and Chair sashes. Oh, We also got the Amathis Rose Package and are using 1500 Vacation Dollars toward it.

                      Very nice.  Just one comment though, if you arranged outside photographers, why not just go with the complimentary package? I wanted amber package but since our photographers are our guests, I'm just adding the carriage and maybe the DVD. That way we can spend the palace money on spa and champagne!
