I guess the transfers depends on who your TA is. Mine included transfers in our package price. She gave us a rate of $1664 per couple for 4 days and 3 nights. Is this similar to what everyone else is quoted?

We did not book through a TA but me and my guests just booked directly with MP through the group link provided. I think the price of the hotel room combined with airfare, my guests paid for about 1500-1600 so not that too far off.

Here are a list of my questions and answers from the WC I hope this helps....

 

 

1. Can my wedding qualify for the 1500 Vacation dollar promotion?

This promotion will be replacing the Passport Promotion and other promotions to add additional benefits for the guests.

 

2.Does the bride and grooms room count towards my 25 group bookings or is it bride and groom plus 25 bookings?

Yes, the room and room nights count.

 

 

WC Answer: No, we do not need a new contract. All reservations are being converted to the new promotion.

 

 

3.Are round trip airport transfers included?

The wedding groups receive a discounted rate for the transfers. They are $10.00 round trip, per person. To book the transfers:

 

You may complete the transfer reservations in two ways:

 

1. Online at: http://www.palaceresorts.com/BookOnline.asp

Click on: ** REQUEST TRANSFERS**

2. Write an email to the address below, including reservation number and flight information

Just an FYI for anyone that would rather have the Cancun symbolic ceremony before getting legally married in your hometown...

 

I had noticed in in one place in the Palace Resorts Wedding materials I was given it said that for a Symbolic Ceremony it was the responsibility of the couple to get married in their hometown pre/post travel (even though in the paragraph before it says you need to bring your marriage certificate with you). I was a little uncomfortable with getting married beforehand because I kind of felt like I was deceiving my guests in Cancun since I would already be married (especially since my parents know we are planning a symbolic ceremony, but we hadn't told FI's parents). So I asked my WC if we could get married in our hometown after the Cancun wedding, & she said that was fine.

 

I would definitely clear it with your WC, but since I've cleared it with my WC, I'm going to get married legally once we get back home.

I guess the ladies may know the answer to this, but I noticed in the Moon Palace contract that any rooms booked through alternate sources or online will NOT count for the credit for free cocktail hours, etc. However, several brides have used TAs, in fact, Southernsweetie, I contacted your TA, to help their guests.

My question is, do you get credit for the rooms if your guests utilize a TA?

You can still get credit. My FMIL is my TA and she just did a wedding at ASP in November and it didn't matter if it was booked through her or the link they provide, they all count. If anyone books through the website and not your own link, you TA should be able to contact MP and have them moved over to your group.

With my TA, not only do you get credit for the rooms (free events with a certain number of rooms booked), but the agency also throws in some extra freebies as well. The agency's freebies are strictly for the bride & groom and are also dependent on the total amount of rooms booked - including the bride and groom's room. They include things like a Palace Resorts robe for the B&G, room upgrade to concierge level for the two of you, and a list of other things. It is my understanding that my guests' rooms will qualify for the free stuff (events included) only if my guests book through the same entity/source.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
