    Good Afternoon ladies!!!

     

    So we got word that we have reach the 60 night magical number!! I was getting concerned as we have 40 guests coming with several of those booking outside our group booking. I didn't want to pay $400 a table for a reception and they would not budge on the dinner reservation for 35.

    Also heard from Zaray our on-site wedding coordinator. Yay!!!  I emailed her and made sure that we were at the Bugambilia Gazebo that Lizzie and I discussed in September. She didn't have record of that conversation so ****LISTEN UP NEW BRIDES******** KEEP ALL OF YOUR EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE!!! THIS IS YOUR AMMUNITION WHEN NEGOTIATING WITH MP!!

     

    I also reserved the Bugambilia Terrace for our private event (originally it was to be a cocktail hour then we met the 60 nights).

     

    Once you get your on-site coordinator they will send you a spreadsheet with several pages. One with pricing for extras, one for pricing for private events, one with a form to fill out for your events, DJ pricing, Dining options (meaning the restaurants and how many people you can actually make a reservation for), and there's a form to fill out with your guests travel dates and times. So you will need to get this information from your guest if they booked elsewhere.

     

    I'm waiting on her to get back into the office to answer a few questions and then I think we will be set. 72 days left!!!

          Welcome!!! My advice is to read through this thread if you haven't done so already. You'll find a ton on information on here already. As far as negotiations go they don't negotiate well. Keep all of your email correspondence with every coordinator that is assigned to you. I'm on my 5th one since last summer. You will hear on here the coordinators sometimes quote different prices but it seems lately they are getting more consistent. Be patient they take a long time to get back with you sometimes and if you go for a couple of weeks without hearing from your coordinator after you have emailed her, check and see if she's still employed there. It seems they have a very high turnover rate. And lastly remember that most of the brides on here at some point in time have been about to give up on MP but once they got to the resort everything turned out ok.

           

          Happy planning!!!

I will be having about 80 guests joining me in Cancun. Have they been flexible with negotiations? Please help! :)

            jamendoza@palaceresorts.com

             

            Here's her address. I hope that you are able to get in contact with her. If not I would give them a call and ask to speak with someone. A month out and no word I think I would be freaking out too!!!

             

            My on-site coordinator is Zaray and she seems extremely helpful and on top of things thus far. She's out of the office until 3/30 but you might give her a shout too. Here is her email address. zcasillas@palaceresorts.com

             

            Good luck!!!

              Hey Summer-

               

              Here is a pdf that I got from MP a while back for private events. They have black tablecloths as a choice. Hope this helps!

                I am starting to freak out a bit. I don't have an onsite - Joannis said I will deal with her until I get there. She wouldn't confirm any of my events except my reception. I havent got approval for my vows. I don't have a meeting set up with an onsite. I am leaving in 2 weeks... ahhhh!

                    I find it quite ironic and humorous that the Private Events MPCancun file states numerous times that your events and locations MUST be reserved and confirmed 60 days in advance before the event, however, many of us are finding it impossible to even touch base with a wedding coordinator that far in advance.
