    Palace Resorts doesn't release their promotions until the fall of the previous year. When we booked directly through our membership we were told that the promotion might change. It's not worth the stress to wait, so we reserved. Most of us brides will tell you that a lot of guests don't even book until closer to the wedding date. Yes, it is easier to have a TA but there's no way they can guarantee the promotion. Think about it.... if you get to Moon Palace and they tell you the promotion has changed, who is going to pay for the $1500? As long as you can get a general idea of the room rates that's all that should matter. Palace Resorts always has some sort of great promotion. When we booked, we were only getting $1500 now they have increased it to to $2000 based on the length of our stay.

      Hi Ladies,

       

      I wanted to share my Boarding Pass STDs made by Sarah from Sproullie Designs.  I will be sending them out the 2nd week of April so that everyone will receive them by April 21, 2011.

        I can definitly send you a template once I am done all my editing and have printed them. If you could get a copy of photoshop elements it would be easy for you to make changes!!

          I booked right through MP- I would email her- she responds very quickly then you will have it writing (thats what I have to I can print it out in case they try not to give it to me)

I suppose I could just eat the $50.00 I paid and contact the TA my family usually uses. I'm still confused though as to why Michelle, the Miami WC, told me that promos wouldn't be available until May. If I could confirm that my guests and I would be entitled to at least the $1,500.00 resort credit I would have no second thoughts about booking immediately Thanks for letting me vent girls!

We havent done a room block because we have not even sent out our STD we are having a hard time figuring out who we really want to invite lol, plus we ordered some spanish STDs for some family members in mexico, Does anybody think we need another website set up in spanish or should we just translate everything on the same website? im confused :(.

                My TA (who we works with all the time) said the same thing since we will be paying for our stay up front.  We have ours set-up so that everyone will have a month to put their inital down payment of $150 down and then begin their monthly payments.  This way we will have an early head count, although we know we will have some late comers.  I do not have and have never had a contract with my TA however; I do save all of my emails.  I would recommend a website all in Spanish as your other (if you have tons of information on their) maybe too lengthy.  Just my opinion of course.  Our Philosopy was to invite everyone (well not everyone) so that no one feels left out.

                  We have not set up an "official" contract with our TA. But once we set up a room block, we have to put up an initial payment that will ultimately go towards our stay at MP. I told everyone we would be making the room block available in April. So far I really like having a TA. There are times I had some confusion about what MP told me about what we would have to pay for a room block and our TA contacted them to make sure they would honor the lowest amount...even if people went through our TA. She will go to bat for us if we ever have any problems! I definitely make sure I keep EVERY email I send/receive in a folder just in case! No matter what, get everything in writing!
