    Too bad we don't have a list of 2011 MP brides that we can keep updating.

     

    I think I will send a request for spa appointments today. At least the ones for me and FI!

        2011 Brides

         

        Congrats to you and yours!!!!  Would any of you be able to help out a MP 2012 bride who just booked?  In regards to your contract I have seen a couple of post for those that didn't have a "group contract" so they didn't get the incentives (free events etc.).  Has anyone heard of this or have encountered this in your contract.  Two, if anyone has Janina as their Miami coordinator, would you mind telling me her turnaround time and/or best way that you found that work with/in your communication with her.

         

        Thanks for your help.

         

        I can't wait to read post-wedding post from you.

          Great idea! We can, through a Wiki! Just made a quick one. Add yourselves, ladies!  :)

                I have Janina and she has been great so far. If you are just asking the basic questions and are not in a rush, just email her and she normally emails back within 2-3 days. But if you want an answer quickly, just call her until she picks up and do not leave a message. Janina always has a quick answer and doesn't have to look it up or call you back. :o)

                 

                I also have a group contract and my guests are booking thru our wedding link provided by Moon Palace. It's super easy and even if you don't have the exact amount that you put on the contract to make the free functionsat the end, Janina will just change the number to the actual rooms you booked even if its less than you originally thought (which still means you might get a comp night or cocktail hour for free) so it worth it. :o)

                  Hi! I just actually changed my contract from the Amber Collection to the Complimentary because we discovered the same things. Basically they changed the contract to the Complimentray package and wrote in the contract that our first deposit towards the Amber Collection is going to be used as a credit. So it's really easy and you already have a credit for things you actually need or want. :o)

                   

                  Cheers,

                  Nicole

If we switch to the complimentary package it would save us about $1,000!

                   

                  does anyone know?

                    Allison,

                     

                    I just love reading your comments, sounds like I am going to be a similar bride as you were! My first request is the Tuscan Terrace and we are doing the gazebo as well. Thanks for all you help.

                     

                    Did you make mini playlist on your i-pod for enterance, first dance, etc? Does the Tech make any announcments on the mic or did you have someone in your wedding party?

                     

                    YOU are a rock star for helping us brides to be!

                     

                    Thanks again!

I just gave it to my WC during our meeting and her and her assistant took care of it (which is why you want to remember to tip them).  They added roses to each table during the cocktail hour and other little candles and shells to the reception decor that which I did not ask or pay for but was much appreciated!

                     

                    We have a welcome cocktail party on Thursday, Rehearsal Dinner on Friday and Cocktail hour immediately following the wedding and then our private reception.  Since we had the room nights the events were all free.

                     

                    We had a very brief outline of the ceremony but that was it.  The readers got their readings from the priest when the arrived at the chapel and everything else we just winged.  I would say that was my biggest complaint, we had everyone meet for a rehearsal and all they did was have us walk in and out of the chapel.  We knew nothing in between.  I would advise not wasting time on a rehearsal.

                     

                    We could have added things like a Lazo ceremony or chosen our readings but we did not.

                     

                    Our reception was on the Tucan Terrace and we had our cocktail hour in the Tucan Gazebo.  I don't know what the Bugumbiglas (sp?) terrace looks like but that Gazebo is much prettier if you have the option.  However I did love both our cocktail hour and reception spot.

                     

                    We used JSAV audio for like $385 or something, it was just their lowest package for Ipod and speakers. It includes a tech who runs the music along with his Laptop with music on it, microphone, and 4 lights that were used on the trees surrounding the terrace.  We paid extras for the lighted steps and the laterns.  There is lighting around the terrace and these lights were not needed for lighting purposes, just decoration. We also paid for 1 square candle per table as centerpieces.  Once again, not needed just decoration.

                    What kind of decor/if any did you bring?

                    How much do they charge to set up your decor? Should I just ask a guest/friend to do it?

                    Did you just have the cocktail hour and private dinner?

                    Did you have a ceremony outline before arriving?

                    Were you able to add anything to the ceremony? Like readings, etc.

                     

                    Thanks so much.

                      Can anyone tell me where you can find rose petals for cheap? I know I have seen some posts for frozen rose pedals.

                       

                      THanks,
