      Cgeris, 

      Valeria is my WC and she's been rather pleasant considering that I've been bothering her 11 months before my wedding. She's pretty slow in responding to my emails but at least I'm getting a response from her. I think it helps that I have a wedding specialist contacting her on my behalf and that's the reason she's responding. Be persistent and resend the email. If all else fails..... email Janina Mendoza at the miami office.

        Hi DiamondGirl,

         

        Sorry I haven't been back in awhile-- Valeria has been pretty decent! Yes, it does take her 1-2 weeks to respond to a question but she's been so nice and helpful with all of her answers when she does reply! I just make sure to include as many questions as possible in each email!  I will post my questions here very soon!

          Hey ladies! 

           

          VERY interested to see what happens with everyone's photography situations. I am hiring an outside photog for my wedding day, and I know he's worked at MP before. Problem now is whether he needs a day pass or a night's stay. Anyone else super annoyed and irritated that we just can't buy the day passes and move on with it? They're still making money off of us... so they should be happy with it! Anyhow, please, please, PLEASE, post your updates on the situation. What you did, how it worked out, etc.?  Huge thanks to you ladies in advance. 

           

          Also, can someone tell me more about the different sides of MP and which they preferred/why? I hear Sunrise is more singles/action/fun. Nizuc is in the in-between, in both activity and location, with good ocean views, but older and smaller than other rooms. Then Grand is over the boondocks, no ocean views, but new, larger, nicer, quieter. Suggestions? Experiences? 

           

          Again, thanks for letting me use your knowledge! 

          :D

            As soon as someone has a wedding at Moon Palace with the new SMilemarket by Kodak photographers will you post your photos. I am still wondering if I should use an outside photographer or just use the new service at Moon Palace.

             

            Thanks!

                                                                            i.      Can there be someone preparing fresh smoothies here? Mmm frozen drinks are not allowed in the outside functions

              3.      I have decided to keep the Complimentary Package for my wedding due to some information that the Miami office didn’t tell me about…(Vacation dollars can’t be used for Immaculate Conception Package). Due to this, I will need the following:

              a.       Wedding Cake more than for 35 guests…for about 80. (please send me options for styles/ flavors) please find the complementary package attached

              b.      Blood analysis will not be necessary ok

              c.       Champagne to be served just prior to entering the reception (I will talk to you about this when I arrive at the resort for our meeting..) ok

              d.      I will be in touch about other optional services soon (table top arrangements, bouquet and boutineeres)

              e.       Add the solo violinist for ceremony (Maestro Oropeza, which I already asked you about). Ok

              f.       Horse & Carriage one way ride to ceremony ok

              g.      Add the mariachis for Cocktail Hour –starting 515pm-615pm please (already asked you for this) ok  fine

              h.      Could you please remind me of what the “honeymoon package” is? Thanks.  There are some amenities to your room invitation for a cocktail party and t-shirts as a honeymooners

                Other questions I have:

                1.      How can I buy day passes for a few off site guests? How many hours are the “day passes” good for? At what time may they come in and at what time do they need to leave? And are they allowed the same all inclusive services as any other guest during that day (example: eat and drink wherever they want on MP).

                2.      Can we set up our pre-wedding meeting for Tuesday, July 19th at about 11am?

                3.      Is there a Karaoke machine available for rent in the Andromeda Disco for Friday, July 22nd?

                4.      How many bar top tables should we expect to be set up in the chapel gardens for the cocktail hour?

                5.      How much is it to rent umbrellas?

                6.      How soon can we have access to the cake? A guest would like to add some decorative pieces to it, as a gift.

                  I have also heard about the ability to purchase day passes... but I personally was told at least a one night stay needed to be purchased! (also very frustrated by this)... and it seems like the trend lately in the threads suggest that they are making people at least stay a night- rather than day passes

                    What I personally did was got an outside photographer but then will be using Kodak for the video!! Getting video services can be deducted from vacation dollars with no limit...

                      Hi, I booked my wedding and have Cristina, she hasn't been to helpful so far. Were you able to get the menus for the buffet, plated banquet and coctail hour yet?  I'm just wondering how your experience has been.
