      Hey Ladies,

       

      I received my confirmation today via the telephone   I will receive my contract (which is sent via email. Make sure you check your spam box) sometime today.  Now I can contact my photog etc.. to give them the go ahead and down payment to make it official.  They were kind enough to hold my date and have been since Nov.  Sarah Sprouille (who is a vendor on this site) will begin our STDs on the 10th so this weekend I have to finish our questionnaire.  MY DIY will be limited to OOT bags (extras inside of it), Pre travel packets and items for the reception.  I'm not patient enough nor crafty/creative to do invites etc..

        Very exciting! Still havent heard back since sending in my reservation request. I did leave the number of guests and rooms blank, as it is still a little early to have a number.

         

        Chanel-Question about your photographer. Are you giving them a day pass? Or paying for a night to stay at the resort...I have read mixed reviews on this and have not yet decided on a photographer...any input would be great!

          There are tons of mixed reviews for the outside vendors.  I'm going to do my best to obtain 2 day passes (it would be way cheaper).  However; its a shame to say that I think that depending on the coordinator that you receive (this is where the variation of answers come from.)  However; my photog does not require a nites stay. He simply ask that all is set-up via a day pass or whatever required by MP so that he can service us.

                  As an April 2011 Moon Palace bride, here is my word of advice. Once the contract is signed they will be very slow to respond. I try to make a list of several questions, at least 20, because I know it will take at least a week for a response. I also advise getting a TA to handle bookings, it might end up being cheaper that resort pricing. We're members so we're forced to pay a higher rate and now I worry I won't make the group numbers because it's cheaper for guests to book on their own. But at least I know I have enough for the free cocktail hour.

                      Congrats mochamakes3 & we thank you for your words of wisdom.

                       

                      May I ask you what questions (that you have learned of) are more important than others?  For some reason, I thought that contract was going to be lenghty. To my suprise its only 3 pages.  However; my biggest ?? and the biggest discrepancy... is the "outside vendor policy" or shall I say to day pass or reserve a room. 

                       

                      Again thanks so much and I look forward to reading the 2011 Bride reviews and taking notes.
