Does anyone have a sample of the "Edited DVD 1 hour" from Moon Palace's Smile Market?  I'm wondering if it's worth the $440 or if I should just as family to record as much as they can...

They're both on the Sunrise side.  Barracuda doesn't have A/C.  It has fans and gets a little ocean breeze, but if you think your guests would prefer A/C, you should choose La Gondola.  Barracuda is a steak house & pretty good.  They don't have a buffet there, so I'm assuming you'd get a set menu or everyone would get to order off the menu.  That would be something else to consider when making your decision.

 

Moving it to the day before your wedding wouldn't be a bad option either.  You could have a separate brunch for the ladies and then a "rehearsal dinner" that night.  Most wedding guests are probably accustomed to attending a rehearsal dinner (even though in this case there will probably not be a rehearsal).

 

I'm sure it will be a great night whatever you choose!

I thought about even having my welcome dinner/bridal brunch mixed but my fiance isnt thrilled with having any group dinner the night before - which makes sense. crybaby2.gif

 

So now I'm stuck with Gondola Italian Buffet or Barracuda. Does anybody know anything about these two? I'm leaning towards just moving my welcome dinner to the night before rolleyes.gif but I really dont want to.

 

Also my WC sent me a photo of an amethyst rose tuscan gazebo wedding like I asked. You'll notice it's way more rosey then amethyst"y" :).

Okay... so by now, I think we all know about some of the issues MP has had in the past about giving different brides different answers. Some brides said that they were allowed to use the resort credit to pay for upgrades to the complimentary package - flowers, carriage, cake, dress/suit pressing,... They're telling me now that the 1500 can be put toward the spa/salon, golf, and tours, but it cannot be put toward "extras" to the complimentary package. Any of you brides have correspondence or experience with this? Much appreciated ladies!

I'd like the answer to this too because I choose the complimentary. I don't understand why you can apply your resort credit to all other packages and not the complimentary package. I don't care that it's complimentary, some how we're paying for it so it really isn't free. Besides, the complimentary is a package and I feel you should be able to upgrade using your resort credit with all packages.

I can't remember the name right now.  I changed it from the Tucan terrace to that at the last minute.  We did have to pay extra but it was worth it for us.  Here is a link to our pictures. When I was planning seeing pictures really helped!  La Luna photography was wonderful!  Jonathan did a great job.    http://lalunaphotographers.com/blog/gallery/jonathan/weddings/amanda-byron/

 

Awesome Portfolio!  Those guys did a super job, you look amazing!

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!

Thank You. I didn't know you could use your resort credit for decor! That's great! Now I can request colored linens. I'm going to ask my wedding coordinator first because we all know how they tell everyone something different. What they may have done for you, they may not do for me. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though :)

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
