May 2011 Brides!

Recommended Posts

When my TA did my room block she asked me to specifically list where I wanted to block my rooms. I just told her that my guest wanted to be where the action is and that we would prefer the Grand section. When she sent me the contract for my room block It showed that the quest were reserved for the Sunrise section. I was even able to request the specific room that I wanted on the Grand Side (I saw a review on Trip Advisor and it is one of the few rooms on that side that actually has a view of the ocean).

Everyone seems to know where they are staying.  I do not know what my TA is doing, but she told me that we will not know which section we are in until everyone books.  She assured me there is a room block.  I'm confused.  She says she has booked a bunch of wedding at Moon, so I guess I just have to trust her.

Oh wow! I just talked to my TA a few mins ago and she was very vague about it.  She said there is a room block of 20-25 rooms (haha..what does that even mean, shouldn't there be an exact number?).  She said they will figure out exactly where once everyone is booked.  I think that basically means my guests are just going to get whatever rooms are available.  I don't know.  I really like my travel agent though.  She books weddings at MP all the time so I guess she knows what she's doing.  I'm not going to stress about it.

I wouldn't stress at all. They are professionals. And everyone has their own little ways of doing things. The good thing is that when they do room blocks they generally put everyone in the same area. We are all going to have a great time. No worrys!!!

You're right..  If I should be stressing about anything it should be getting to the gym and making sure I can wear a bikini that week!

That's great!! I was hoping someone on the site would be there the same time!  How far along are you in planning?   You are getting married on the 15th is that right?  I've talked to so many people on here I get everyone confused.  Are you also using Octavio as your photographer?

 

 

 

 

I ordered my dress, made std's and almost finished with my invites and plan to mail them 1st week of November. I did a site visit in July where I met my coordinator Cristina...I was able to book the ceremony and reception locations so far. I have ordered my favors and OOT bags and some fillers for them. I hope to have a final decision on my MOH dress by the end of the month. We have taken our e-pics (twice). I have decided on a DJ, just have to send in my deposit after I receive the contract. Originally I was going to use Octavio, but after seeing so many other photographers work...I am now undecided. I am torn between Juan Navarro, Luz Maria Avila and Octavio. I am also looking into bringing my own photographer to get 3 days worth of pics. I got a really good offer from MarieSam Sanchez from this forum...Her pics are beautiful. If anybody that will be there around my dates want to split travel costs....PM me. MarieSam is a member of this forum, does great work and is really accomodating. Please PM me if interested on sharing her as a photographer. How is everyone else's planning coming along?

Hi beautiful brides!! smile159.gif

 

I'm from Montreal, Canada and my fiance and I are getting married May 5th, 2011!! It's getting so close now!! I was wondering if anyone here is getting married at the Barcelo Maya by any chance? It would be great to hear about someone else's experience. I'm having a hard time getting info from the wedding coordinators.

 

Congrats to you all and look forward to chatting! smile123.gif

Wow, you are way ahead of me on planning.  I just booked Octavio last week.  I read great reviews of him and his prices are fantastic!  I will take a look at Maria Sanchez though.  I sent out my std in March and just mailed my invitations a few weeks ago.  My dress and bm dresses have been ordered and ard due in to us in January.  That's about it.  I have been looking at ideas for OOT bags, favors and flowers, but haven't decided on anything yet. What ceremony and reception locations did you choose?  That's next on my list to decide.  Are you using an outside DJ or does the resort have DJ's to choose from?  I read that some girls hired outside DJ's, but I'm worried about doing that.

I agree Octavio's prices are great. You also have a good amount of things planned so far! I chose the Tucan Gazebo for the ceremony and the Carribean Terrace for the cocktail hour and reception. I was going to go with discomovil for DJ because their prices are great, but I have just read some really great reviews on DJ Ivan from Dorremix. However, he would cost almost double of what the other DJ charges. Apparently, he has to charge a specific rate for Moon Palace..which he gave me a quote of $900 for 4 hrs. I am emailing him some more questions before I make final decision. The DJ is important and can make or break a party!

I completely agree.   How are you getting around using an outside DJ though?  Do you  mind sending me the DJ info.  Also, is there an additional setup fee for teh Carribean Terrace?  I love it, but I was told it would be an extra $12 pp setup fee.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
