    Im not sure if this depends on your TA but this is what is required trough my TA

     

    "Your guests would be required to guarantee their room reservations with a one night deposit at time of booking, there would be a second deposit due date set by the hotel (usually about 120 days prior to arrival date) to complete 50% of total room charges and final payment would be due 45 days prior to arrival date.  Each guest would receive a confirmation invoice from us upon booking detailing the deposit/payment deadlines.  Guests usually welcome the payment plan rather than having to pay in full if booking online and they can also make installment payments in between as long as each deposit is completed on the due dates".

    Ok I read somewhere that when our guests book they only have to pay for the first night then can pay the rest when they arrive.  Is this true?

      If you book your group contract room block directly through MP, you have to pay your entire stay (for bride and groom) up front in order to secure the group block.  It ends up being about the same either way you do it.

      What is everyone doing for room blocks and deposits? My TA says to block 20 rooms we need to pay $2050 up front (which will ultimately be credited to our room). I wasn't planning on having to spend such a large chunk up front...I have so many other things I need that money for! Is anyone else encountering this?

        Yours isn't different at all.  This is exactly what they ask for if you block rooms through a group contract.

Basically exactly what our TA wanted too...I'm soooooo confused why mine is so different!

I don't know if I posted the rates on here earlier but this is what my TA quoted me:

           

           

          Rates below apply to Moon Palace quoted "per person per night" and include all taxes/fees, valid for stays January 4 - April 14, 2012:
           
          Deluxe Resort View:  $214.00 per person based on double / $392.00 per night single / $206.00 per person triple / $197.00 per person quad
          Superior Deluxe Garden View*:  $238.00 per person based on double / $440.00 per night single / $229.00 per night triple / $218.00 per person quad
          Superior Deluxe Ocean View:   $250.00 per person based on double / $464.00 per night single / $242.00 per night triple / $230.00 per person quad
          Superior Deluxe Ocean Front:  $256.00 per person based on double / $476.00 per night single (maximum occupancy 2 Adults)
          Concierge Level:  $272.00 per person based on double / $506.00 per night single (maximum occupancy 2 Adults)
          Children 4-17 years pay $52.00 per night.  Child rate applies only when child shares room with 2 or more adults
           
          I'm still trying to figure out how to get around the ridiculous deposit we are supposed to put down to hold a block of rooms ($2,050). We will see!!!!

            I have offered this up in a couple other threads, but for some reason, I JUST found the 2012 MP wedding page.  We are also getting married at MP in 2012.  I am heading to the resort in May 2011 to do a site visit.  I plan on taking photos of EVERYTHING and will share with everyone when I return.  If you have any SPECIFIC area of the resort you would like a great photo of, please PM me or make a list here, and I will be happy to get a couple good photos of everything.  I know its hard to plan without seeing the resort, and for some people, making a trip for a site visit might not be possible.  I hope this helps.

               Save the Dates are done.  I think they cost me more to make them, than it would have if I just ordered them and let someone else do the work.  Oh well.  They are being sent out this week to give everyone A LOT of time to plan vacation time and save money.

                    I used a template I found on these forums for the outside border of the 'boarding pass'.  Then I designed all the text and pictures inside.  My FI wanted the flower in her colors, maracas and a margarita.  Those were her specifications.  They are printed on highgloss photo paper, which sort of takes away from the boarding pass look, but makes them come out much nicer.  The sleeve is really easy, and I used a template I designed myself.  Its basically nothing more than a 8.5x11 piece of pinkish cardstock tri folded and then altered a little.  If you are a little bit handy, they are actually quite easy to do.  The design was all done in MS word.  Nothing fancy with photoshop or anything like that.  They are much more basic than some others I have seen on this forum, but Im no professional graphic designer, and my FI was thrilled with how they came out...thats all that matters!
