    If you qualify for the unlimited private functions, doesn't that automatically include a 4-hour bar for free?  So if you did a "true" private event, then the only thing you'd be paying for is set up per person plus decor (the food and drinks should be free for up to 4-hours per day).

     

    At MP Cancun, there's a VIP Beach Bar near Sunrise that is pretty private. It closes at 8pm, but I was told you could use it after 8pm -- may not technically be a private event, so people could come in and out, but honestly if theres a big group of people that already all know each other and a few stragglers come in, I doubt they'd stick around too long... but that way, the bar/decor is free (so no need to pay for that)...

     

    Just a thought.

    She is suggesting the Tucan Terrace - we are looking for a really private location with a bar that is included.  Does anyone know which location would give us that for our reception?

     

    Thank you!

      The Grand Terrace (by the pool) looks very private and has a bar.  I'm having my cocktail hour and reception at that location.  The Tuscon Terrace looks very pretty as well from the pictures I've seen.  It looks more private than some of the other terrace and over looks the ocean.  People can still be walking by though.  Don't think there is a bar there.

        Be persistant in what you want. I got the caribbean terrace with my unlimited private functions. They do add a set up fee of $12 per person since it is up stairs.

          I think that when you do the rooftop terrace it's a little bit extra for set up.  I have read reviews on here where they have cocktail hours there.

           

          I don't think a bar is included in the Tucan Terrace.  I think if you have over 35 people it's considered a "private function" and you can't have them at a bar/restaurant.  My WC told me I would have to do a ballroom or an outside terrace.  I opted for a terrace because I think only one of the ballrooms has a lot of windows.

            I agree.... it's your wedding day and money was spent. Make every bit of it worth your while. Be persistent and fight for what you want.

              We have Bugambilias Terrace reserved for our wedding reception, but I am going to ask about holding a welcome cocktail at one of the rooftop terraces. The only restriction I have seen is that you can't hold dancing on rooftops.

                Does anyone have pictures of the different terraces? 

                 

                By the way - my WC Cristina has gotten back to me within hours of me asking my questions.....not too sure if I've just gotten lucky but so far it's been great communicating with her.

                  Hi Again,

                   

                  I just got my nifty little package of details from the WC.  None of the flowers really excite me in the sapphire package - can we pick flowers from another package of equal or lesser value?

                   

                  Also - I'm keen on getting flowers from outside the resort for my 2 BM and extra boot's for the 2 GM - is there a secret to getting them descretely on to the resort?  Or do they just know how to package them properly?  Does anyone recommend them?

                   

                  I'm also looking for a map of the resort that is clear - I found one on the resort webpage but you can't really see much unless you zoom in and I'd like to be able to put the map in our OOT gift bags.

                   

                  I think that is all my questions.....for now!!

                   

                  Thanks all you lovely ladies!

                   

                  Angela

                   

                  81 sleeps until we leave and 85 sleeps until I get married!  WOOHOO!

                    Angela,

                     

                    If you pick different flowers you have to pay for the upgrade. Lots of other brides order from Maya Disneo and just have them delivered as a gift from home. Here's his website:

                     

                    http://mayadisenofloral.com.mx/

                     

                    When you check in, guests receive a little pocket sized map, or at least my family always has.

                     

                    It's so exciting being less than 90 days!

                      Is Maya Disneo cheaper than the resort's flowers?
