I am trying to get a budget together and want to have at least an idea of how much I might expect to spend in this area. 

 

A second question - Flowers. Are any of you going through Moon Palace for your flowers? If so, how much did this run? The website outlines prices for bridal bouquets and MOH bouquets, but what about something for bridesmaids, flower girls, etc... 

 

Thanks!

The cake for a 3 tier starts at $230..it wasn't worth for me to upgrade to that with only having 30 people. As for flowers, I am using Marvin from Maya Floral. His prices were a percentage of MP. MP's bridal bouquet starts at $154, table arrangements start at $95, boutonaires $32..If you haven't received the Colin Cowie packet of info, let me know I'll forward it to you! Marvin is charging me $85 for each centerpiece, $20 for boutonairs and $60 for my bridal parties bouquets. I wanted a bouquet full of lillies so he's charging me $160..any other questions let me know!

Thank you all for your responses. I am now working on a information brochure to send out to everyone. The only thing that I am unsure of is the actual directions on how to have my quests reserve rooms right through the site using my wedding number. I am waiting to hear from my TA.

Hi ~

 

I am deciding whether to use the florist at the Moon Palace or use a vendor.  Is it a pain to use a vendor?  Do you know if the Moon Palace charges extra for the setup or do you need to buy a day pass for the florist?

I'm personally using Marvin..and as of right now there is no outside fee bc I didn't tell MP about using him just told them I don't need their flowers. And from what I read from other brides..Marvin just says he has a delivery and gets away without having to pay the fee

Who is Marvin? Do you have contact info? I was just looking into getting outside flowers due to high cost at resort. Thank you!

Im using Marvin at maya floral also, his prices are half of what the resort charges and he has been extremely helpful, even after I changed my mind 2 1/2 months before our wedding. He will do bouquets, boutinerres, centerpieces etc... All I did was tell him my wedding colors and sent a few examples of what I wanted and he sends back pictures of what he creates. His contact info is marvin@mayafloral.com. When you email him make sure you put "WEDDING floral services" in your subject title. I know some brides on here have had issues with him getting back to them, I have not had any problems at all with him responding to emails, in fact he has been very prompt and has even emailed me as late as 9:30-10:00. All he asked upon order confirmation was for a $100 deposit that you pay via PayPal and you pay the rest once he delivers your flowers. You wont be charged a vendor fee because he will deliver the flowers to the resort lobby and you can have someone meet him there to pick them up. Hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else.

He had me pay a $200 deposit, I am guessing this might be due to the amount of flowers?

 

He was very good at getting in touch with me as well, every once in awhile I have to resend and email but I'm sure it's because he's so busy with all hotel weddings not just Moon Palace.  The only worry I have so far is that the samples he's sent back to me are  nothing I have sent him.  I hope he will get this right before the wedding!

I'm still having issues with my coordinator.  I sent my checklist over 3 weeks ago and have not heard a response.  I'm 40 days out and can't even print menus, schedules, programs, etc. because I'm still waiting to hear back sad.gif

 

Even a response saying it's being worked on would be nice.  I hate that my coordinator are making this process absolutely awful.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
