This is my first post! I am a MP April 2013 Bride!  I have just finished 5 days of reading through this entire thread (all 378 pages) and the information is invaluable.  I feel like I know so many of you already and you are all so talented, beautiful and wonderful!  I am grateful for all the insight I now have regarding what to expect in the next 14 months as I begin to plan my wedding.  I wish you all the best in next months as your wedding dates approach and look forward to seeing how all your weddings turn out!  I am not a very creative bride, but all your DIY projects are so inspiring, I may just take a shot at it!  I walked around AC Moore this afternoon gathering up ideas already!  I am sure I will have many questions as the days and months go on, but for now just saying hello!

 

 



OMG, that is called domestic violence and has nothing to DO with the resort!!  How stupid- he could have killed her anywhere!!

Well ladies I have been meaning to post some of my recent DIY projects... so here they are!

 

First, my "do not disturb" signs.  Coco- I got the circle cutter you rave about and a big paper cutter and they have been great investments!  Made these bad boys a breeze!

Also- I finished my survival kits to put in my OOT bags.  This is a big CHECK! Off the list.  For the new BDW brides out there I have a word of advice- if you are planning on doing these or other OOT bag ideas buy things as you find them and don't wait to start stocking up once you figure out your game plan.  I started buying things last fall which helped the $$ situation now.

My favorite thing in the kits?  Caribbean Escape Antibac from B&BW.  How perfect!! (They have that new collection of lotions that are all destination themed- unfortunately no caribbean- I think they're Bali, Rio and something else.  I guess we'll have to go to Brazil for wedding renewals sometime LOL!!)

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.  I saw the episode, Dateline NBC - Mystery at Moon Palace.  The husband murdered his wife.  This could have been done (and has been done) anywhere and everywhere in the world.  I fail to see how a domestic violence occurance at a resort in Mexico has anything to do with the safety of either the country or the Resort.  I don't know if any of my potential guests saw the show, but if they even think about bringing it up to me as an argument to not go, they are going to get a mouthful from me about their ignorance.

Ladies,

 

Just in case anyone is wondering about IIiana or Lucy here is a message that I received from Lucy today.  I had to dig in some smile117.gif as I still haven't heard from Valeria.  The Miami folks are out of the office because of the holiday but MP follks are there.  Happy Planning.

 

Dear Chanel, due to some changes in our company, since October 2011, Iliana or I are not longer in the wedding department.  We have a corporate wedding call center in Miami that is providing information, contracts, and rates and planning for our brides.

 

Iâ€m copying this email to Ms. Gretel Del Junco, Wedding Supervisor; she will assign a Wedding Planner to you so she can follow up. Our team will make sure you have an unforgettable day.

 

Sincerely,

Share this post

Hi ladies,

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for reception seating for a smaller group? (approx. 30)

 

Should I still do wedding party at one table and then 2-3 other tables of guests or should I do a sweetheart table and then 3 tables of guests? I don't know what to do...

 

Is everyone bringing their own linens or does anyone have pricing for linen rental at the resort?

Also for the ceremony seating I need help too... lots of the people coming will be standing up with us so I only need seating for 16 max... How should I set it up? 2 rows of 4 on either side might look silly???

if you need seating for 16..do 20 seats so theres some spaces in between so everyone isnt on top of one another. that way you can spread it out a little more and it doesnt look so "silly"!!

A different section (not on the beach)  the cocktail reception by the chapel (not on the beach) and my dinner at a completly different resturant than we had settled on!

I swear she doesnt have a frickin' clue what she is doing!!wtf.gif

What good was it to plan all this crap a year out and email and confirm and call just to be here now with nothing set. I am so stressed out. Finals are coming up and I'm trying to finish my papers, do my DYI stuff and now this. GRR.

Sorry to vent but AHHHH!BangHead.gif

 

On a happier note:

Coco- I agree lets see photos, I love boxers!!

My boxer 4 yrs old - Shaq he is a very large boxer 90lbs!!

Now im worried since I have nothing confirmed other than the date and seeing that none of you get any response from Ivis im clueless what to do, do any of you have a contact email for Ivis so I can attempt to sort this? Thanks again for all you posts on this thread they have helped me so much xx 



 


OMG!  he is getting so big!  So cute!!!!

They do rent the fabric down there, but I believe it can be pretty pricey depending on what you do.  Some girls have brought there own too!  Unfortunately, I have no idea the how long you would need your own to be, etc...

 

As for the wedding date, I feel like that took forever for me too.  Keep e-mailing them, I also had my TA e-mail them as well!

And even through I am working with a travel agent, we are STILL waiting to hear back from MP about reserving a wedding date!!! Which is frustrating because we really want to send out invitations and get the ball rolling with telling our guests when deposits are due, etc.  Any words of wisdom on that? Should it take this long for them to get back to me on just reserving a date??

I have been reading a lot about some of you having problems with the WC and planning things and it kind of freaks me out!!  Before I go ahead and book MP should I look into other Palace resorts??  I really don't wanna have a hard time for the next 8 months planning this wedding, when it shouldn't be that hard to plan!  If you had it to do over again would you go with MP or pick a smaller Palace resort?

Thanks! Katie



 

I heard about this months ago before the dateline special and thought for sure people would freak out!  But, I was prepared to let people know that the crazy husband killed his wife, which has nothing to do with the resort or cancun itself!!!!

I am having a small reception as well.  I was thinking of doing a T shape on the terrace.  There will only be 20 of us, but we are having a private function.  Or I may just do 8 and 10 and a sweetheart table so it looks like there are more people??? 

 

As for linens, I am bringing down my own chair sashes and table runners, but that's it.  I just found them so much cheaper online than what they have them priced at.  Now if they charge a $250 set up fee, that changes everything!

I'm using Marvin as well, he is great! he emails me back right away.  He quoted me 55 per bouquet, so I guess it depends what you get.  I am doing 2 small bouqeuts for my flower girls and he quoted me at 35 for each.  I am also using them as centerpieces to save money so for 10 a piece Marvin is giving me vases to put them in.  I am just going to have one of my bridesmaids set them up before we go in, to avoid any set  up fees by Moon Palace.  Marvin also works with you so you don't have to pay that stupid outside vendor fee from Moon Palace.
