    I got a quote from MPV for hair and makeup and they contacted the someone at MP to ask what the outside vendor fee was because my Miami contact still has not responded to emails, and they said it was $500 or one nights stay..it stinks not being able to use someone other than the vendors MP likes because it gets expensive!

    So, I have tried and tried and tried to contact Marvin for the flowers (even Chanel tried for me - thanks Chanel), but I am not getting a response.  So, I have looked into a couple of other vendors that have been mentioned on this forum.  Cherry blossom is the most responsive and they have very reasonable prices.  I did ask if they have ever delivered to Moon Palace before and they said yes, but its easiest for them if I paid the outside vendor fee to that don't have issues.  So, has anyone used someone else besides the resort or Marvin for flowers, and does anyone know what the outside vendor fee is? Thanks!

      Thanks for mentioning cherry blossom. I was wondering if there were other options out there. I am getting married at the Beach Palace so the same rules and fees apply for all palace resorts.
      Just as stir crazy as my first wedding!

      Cherry Blossom has told me most people do pay the outside vendor fee, esp at MP- with the gate and their security, but my wedding is at Sun Palace and I'm sure the same would work for Beach Palace- there is no gate at Sun Palace.  I spoke with a previous bride and she said she had a meeting with her photographer before the wedding in the lobby and had no problems.  I'm assuming since it is in the heart of Cancun versus being secluded, that makes a world of difference.  Cherry Blossom said they could deliver the flowers in a gift box so there would be no issues on the day of the wedding.  Maybe if Marvin even contacts you- you can ask him what his tricks are to deliver the flowers and another vendor can copy that, lol.

          I put in all caps in the subject line of my email to him the date and place of wedding and he responded to me withing a couple of hours. Might try that. I spoke with Cherry Blossom as well and didn't get the warm fuzzy feeling so it's good to know that they are telling brides now to pay the fee if they are not comfortable delivering there.

          Stalk away!!! Jillian had to take a back seat the last week and a half I had a vicious case of bronchitis so I just lounged around every night. I had to make sure I was ready for my PARTY! Hahaha! But I'm getting back on the wagon tonight. And I'm sure I'm going to die! Being on your feet for 12 hours is enough exercise!! So yeah I probably wouldn't let her kick my rear anymore. Ha!

            Oh and I almost forgot my dress finally came in!!!!! So I'll be heading to pick it up this weekend. I did notice that she ordered a size larger than we discussed so I'm not looking forward to see how much alterations are going to cost but I'm going to bring it home with me and have a lady here do them because she's always cheaper and faster than the dress shops are.

             

            Next weekend we are having our "secret" wedding here in Texas and one month from today we will be putting on the show for all the family and friends!! Wow time has flown by and there's still so much left to do! Ready for a cold beverage by the pool!!

                Ok, thanks ladies for all the feedback. I will try Marvin again! But I tried the all caps things already and it didn't work, I even put - READY TO ORDER in the headline. Hopefully it will get back. And yes, Cherry blossom did say they deliver in a gift box if I just get bridal flowers. That might work, but I know Marvin knows the tricks, so just feel safer with him. But a $500 fee is completely outrageous. I am definitely not paying that!

                I totally understand- I hope Marvin responds- he takes WEEKS to respond to me..good luck!!! Try emailing him every day, over and over again! :)
