Those all sound beautiful. I love love love peonies! I'm not quite sure what I will do with the comp bouquet, because all of the ones I have seen are so pretty.

I think we will give him a few ideas to work from, and let him take it from there. How are you going about drafting your list?

Hi all!  I just found this website today because I have had trouble getting my date registered at Moon Palace and have felt overwhelmed and frustrated.  I've spent hours on the Moon Palace 2011 Brides forum and got great info.  Can't wait to see what I can learn so far here and connect with you ladies!  I feel a renewed sense of hope for our dream wedding!  :)

I haven't even begun a list yet as I would like to find out all of the guest that will attend.  But we are definitely going the Old School Hip Hop & R&B, NeoSoul, and a few songs for line dancing as I have quite a few folks that are apart of a line dancing troop.  By no means will people be sitting down unless it is to change their shoes ;-)

What type of flowers are you getting?  What is Marvin's process to ensure that he will get on the site to deliver the flowers

So far no answer, but I'm assuming it will take a LONG time...but I'm happy Janina at least forwarded it. Although she says they have a "new department that is assisting wedding couple with their pre wedding arrangements". Who knows that that means...maybe it will be a good thing and they will be better about getting back to people.

 

I just emailed Katie from Deco. Her email is on the website. I believe its katie@decocancun.com....

 

I asked a TON of questions...everything from general resort info to events. I'm pretty laid back too, but I don't want to end up wishing I had figured this stuff out earlier, so I'm just going to try and start the process now since I'm sure I will have to do some pushing to get them to respond!

 

Here are my questions. I am asking anything and everything I can so I can get it straight from their mouths and have it documented!

 

 

 

Immaculate Conception Package

 

* We are in the final stages of our Pre-Cana and are getting ready to submit our paperwork to our diocese. Is there anything you need from us?

 

* Because the Catholic ceremony is not legal in Mexico and we must do the legal part in our hometown, can we do it after we get back home if we chose instead of before we leave?

 

* Will you be sending us information of what we need to choose for our ceremony (readings, songs...etc)?

 

* We would like to do the Lasso ceremony during the mass. Is that that included?

 

* Will we need to provide our own Lasso?

 

* What is included in your standard decor for the Chapel (as well as aisle bases)?

 

* Does the CD system for the ceremony play Mp3 discs?

 

* What songs does the solo harpist play in the ceremony?

 

* Instead of the included bridal bouquet, can I use those flowers for decor for our cake?

 

* We would like to have a private reception instead of a dinner reservation for 35 people. Can we use that reservation for either the Welcome Dinner or Rehearsal Dinner?

 

* What is the Honeymoon Package that is included?

 

Wedding Day

 

* I don't want wrist bands to be in our pictures, Can we take off our wrist bands on the day of the wedding without being charged a fee for us and our guests?

 

* I would like to get my hair done for the wedding. When am I able to schedule my appointment and who should I call? 

 

* We are having Del Sol come and photograph our wedding. Can we please get 2 day passes for them?

 

* What does the driver of the horse carriage typically wear? 

 

* We are putting together invitations now. Can we finalize cocktail hour/reception location and times so I can put them on our invitations?

 

* After our ceremony we would like to have a cocktail hour. 

      

     * Can we choose where we have it?

 

     * Can we have the Mexican Trio or Mariachi play during the cocktail hour? 

 

* We would like to have a private reception on a terrace. What are our options? 

 

* Will you send me all the options for appetizers for the cocktail hour and buffet options for the reception?

 

* At this point, I don't think we will hire a DJ. What are our options for music and what is the pricing?

 

* Can we release "Wish Lanterns" during our reception? (They flame retardant and biodegradable)

 

* Can you send me a list of cake options?

 

* What would standard decor/setup for tables at the reception be? 

 

* Do you provide printed menus to place on each setting at the reception since we will not know what the menu is until we meet with you?

 

* Will you provide a Complimentary room for guests to leave their belongings in or to freshen up in close by the reception? 

 

* Do you have anything that we could use (basket/tray) to place Pashminas in at the reception?

 

 

General

 

* We are putting together Pre-Travel Brochures. Can you send me any information that my guests might find useful/helpful to know about the resort?

 

* Do you have a Resort Map that I can use for my brochures or Out of Town Bags?

 

* We would like to have a Welcome Dinner, a Rehearsal Dinner, and a Goodbye Brunch. We don't need these to be private functions, but is there somewhere we can have these semi private?

 

* Can we decide on where these will be so I can add them to our invites?

 

* Can you send me a list of all the different restaurants, what they serve, and what attire is required?

 

     * Can you send me a list of the restaurants that we can have our entire group of guests sit together for the meals I mentioned above?

    

     * Can you send me pictures of the different places we can have these?

 

* Is there anywhere we could possibly play a photo slide show during the rehearsal dinner?

 

* Will you send me the list of what we can use our "Vacation Dollars" on and any rules/limitations on using  them?

I asked once if I could get in touch and the Miami office flat out said no!  You most certainly have knocked a lot off of your list! How did you get in touch with Deco? If you don't mind me asking what questions did you ask? I am so carefree about most things that I am afraid I should be asking more.

I finally got my friend to send me a pic she took with her phone of me in my dress! This was last summer (as we were supposed to get married mast Aug.) Its not the best view (somehow the best pic is gone), but it gives you an idea of what it looks like! I also have a cathedral length veil to wear with it.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
