    Thank you so much for the review, it was very helpful!!!  The pics from Del Sol are so beautiful, makes me wonder if I should go with them. 

     

    Did MP charge you for setting up the stuff you gave to the WC?

    Great review!!! Congrats on the wedding and opeing your salon!!!

     

    Your review brought up all the doubts I have been having from Marvin as well.  He is so slow to respond and he hasn't shown me a picture of what I have requested yet.  He keeps showing me things I don't like and I tell him to change it and he doesn't.  After your review, I think I may just go with one of the other 2 florists I have been emailing!

     

    Thanks! :)

        I know. Long time, no see...or post....but I am back in action! I figure I should give a little update on my life to somewhat explain my absence from the forum, so here it goes:

         

        As everyone I'm sure is aware of or will be, the last couple of months before you leave is hectic to say the least! Once down there it was a total whirl wind of meetings, family, friends, dinners, drinks, and last minute details. As soon as I got back from the wedding I started working on opening a new lash/wax lounge, "Lashed with Love" with my friend and colleague as well as working my regular spa 40+ hours a week. After many late nights and long days, we finally got the store opened in March! After that I was working 60+ hours 6 days a week and trying to slowly transition over to Lashed with Love to give my clients a chance to see me before I left (so I could give them a heads up) and to make sure I was giving my manager time to find new hires and leave on good terms. I also wanted to make sure we were stable enough at LwL before I quit my job since I had many bills to pay after my surgeries and the wedding. Not only was I working a lot, but the many different aspects that go into a new business is enough to keep me up late nights constantly working on something work related! Then there is everything else that needs to be done in the time in between that gets pushed to the side...I think my poor dogs might have gone a little nutty due to the lack of fresh air and walks!

         

        BUT as of this week I am no longer at my other job and am now full time at our new store! I never thought working 40+ hours would be a breeze, but I'm amazed how much more time even just those extra 20 hours can give me! Yay!! I began slowly building my review on MP and tonight finally finished it!! 

         

        So now that I am not a slave to work, I am fully able to answer any and all questions!

            HI there, can you let me know the other two florist you have been emailing.  I've tried with Marvin, but I can't seem to really get a hold of him.  So, I just want to have a back up plan or another option for flowers!  Thanks!

                  Just wanted to check in quickly. All is going very well for us and the people are fab. We decided not to upgrade to Moon and chill but we ran into a couple staying on the moon grand side and they love it! We will try to venture to sunrise in the am but who knows if we will get there lol. We have 6 guest here so far 2 yesterday & 4 today and they love it!!! Massages were OMG great!!! We did this 90 minute presentation MP was offering to sell memberships we got an extra 300 spa credits and $100 for tours :-) My meeting today with Valeria was great. We will have a 4hr reception she will not charge for the extra hour but after that she will. Only charged $65 for set-up & offered great ideas. She had all of our stuff that was passed on from previous communication except menu choice which was easy. Arrecfies cant handle 66 people so on Friday we are having welcome cocktails with our own bar on the terrace instead from 6:30-8:30. She will also do the set-up for that. She didn't say anything about Ivan & knows that I got him a room.and I said nothing about the flowers with Marvin. Since our room is so close to the gazebo she will pick me & the flower girls up and take us to the Nizuc Lobby we will take the long way so that our guest will not see me and we can have a longer ride. All if our add on was $1152 ($12 per person set-up on the rooftop), 2 guest passes, horse & carriage, $65 set-up love her and she greeted with with a big hug. Whoever had her will be elated. She will get a big tip from us. TTYL Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

                    Thank you so much! It has been an incredible amount of work, but SOOO worth being out of a big company with shadey practices. I definitely do A LOT of brides! :) I hope the review helps!

                    I'm glad I could be of some help! I HIGHLY recommend hiring either

                    Yes, I had a VERY difficult time with Marvin. I would say that if you have had better communication with other florists, and you think they could get through and sneak the flowers to you, I would HIGHLY suggest using one of them. I can say that as small of a problem as it was on the big day, the fact that the bouquets did not fit in my centerpieces REALLY bothered me all night! It just looked stupid and sloppy...and that was one of the final requests I had made several times and one that he confirmed a couple days before the wedding. 

                     

                    I imagine that maybe he is getting too busy with all of us MP brides and is having a hard time handling the work load...but still, even if he was going to take months to answer me, he could have at least gotten the flower pictures right!!

                    Thank you! It was definitely amazing. I had a lot of help from Sara (makeup) and Del Sol! They can make just about anyone look like models! :)

                    Yes the theft was a bummer. Especially because one of them actually had their SAFE broken into! Their code had been disabled and reset (which only can be done with a special master key), so they had to have someone come and open their safe for them and that is when they discovered their stuff was missing!!

                     

                    My Uncle was mostly upset because apparently MP security was trying to make it sound like it was THEIR fault and that they had done something to leave it open...or that it was staged. Who knows...but he sure didn't appreciate MP's lack of action. :(

                     

                    Its crazy that BOTH happened the day we were leaving to go down to Playa del Carmen. Makes ya wonder.....
