I don't think the 10 pm rule is set in stone or maybe it was just where we had our reception (Caribbean Terrace) but we went til about 11:30 :-)

Now you have me worried- don't you have the 75 room nights, so don't you qualify for unlimited private functions?  They did away with contracts when I booked in Feb, so I don't have much to go off of.  But I know that I qualified for unlimited functions which last 4 hours so my reception will be from 6-10.  Do you have something different? 

 

 

I hope you guests are more courteous than mine! I know- and she's getting married next May, so I hope she realizes it's annoying when people cancel/don't show up and don't tell you!

Luckily my reception is at 7pm and we'll just have to find a place to drink and hang out if people want to party past 10pm. Unfortunately for early ceremonies, you're pretty much forced to have an early night. Maybe you guys can pick a cool bar to take everyone to or maybe set up a gathering on the beach after the reception if you don't want to pay the extension fees. 

 

 

Those look great, SummerDawn! I think we will be by a pier as well. Beautiful!

 

 

Sorry to hear that Shan0487! You would think it's common courtesy to call you since you are trying to plan a wedding and all... I have a couple looking to cancel as well (my TA gave me a heads up) and I wonder if they are going to even call us and let us know.

We took photos for hours and it was so much less stress than the wedding photos. Sorry for the bad quality they were saved on my phone and then uploaded here but you get the idea

Ladies,

 

Anyone using the Caribbean Rooftop for their function, the 10pm rule does not apply, however you must be done by 12.  Our reception was from 7-11 but as the staff was cleaning many of us sat in our lounge area and talked....until about 11:30 or so. 

 

MP changed their unlimited functions times from 3 hours for a reception to 2 (and a total of 3 hours of "free" events per day) a while back (reference their site).  However; I emailed Gretel in the Miami office demanding that MP honor the initial time before the changes and she did...  In addition, we extended an hour without no charge from Valeria (just another reason we gave her an awesome tip)

 

Here's the thing to remember ladies and hopefully this will take away some stress. 

  1. That what may apply to one bride-to-be or past bride may not pertain to you (either good or bad)
  2. That MP staff is very attentive and accommodating and they want nothing more to please YOU!  With that said, your coordinator may otherwise "allow" somethings that others may not in hopes for a good tip.
  3. I was given a one hour extension (original reception time 7-10) for no charge
  4. I was only charge 1 $65 set-up when clearly I had tons of stuff and she should have applied the $65 to each event
  5. I wasn't charge for 1 day pass (although I think this was by accident)

 

All answers can not come from this site....so nothing should be set-in stone from this format!  Yet request that things are honored and get it in writing but know that your coord maybe very flexible.

I do qualify for free events, but my documents state that only 2 hours is free. Coco makes a good point though, what applies to one bride may not end up happening with other brides. I say work with what you were told from MP or the Miami office and see if you can wheel and deal with them if it's not what you like.

ladydi1844 - does that mean that you CAN use other people's credits? My FI and I are going to use all of our credits for the wedding package and wont have any left over for things like the spa/golf....I know there is a limit for those things per room, but let's say my parents didn't go golfing but booked an appointment for my FI under their points...does it work that way? I've been to other palace resorts before, and i MIGHT remember they check the braclet number to the reservation? But I really don't remember... any help would be great :) Thanks!

Thanks Coco! I have in writing that they would still honor the original functions since I reserved my wedding before the time they changed the perks.  I thought I had somewhere that the unlimited reception was for 4 hours and not 3, guess I better go back and check that too. 

 

Hopefully my Sun Palace WC will be flexible for the better and not worse! :)

The reception before changing the perks was 3 hours....I still have the old print out ;)... this is why our original time was set from 7-10p and then we were headed over to the disco.

    • 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?
