Hi all!! I've been a little MIA but it's so nice to come back to all these posts!! Someone from BP finally contacted me!!!! It felt like Christmas. So, I officially have a wedding planner. It is so nice to finally feel like I have a contact at the resort. Marisol is my planner and has sent me all the info. Kristie, if you want to PM me your email address I will forward you the photos she sent me of private event locations (Palenque Terrace), but I am sure you've seen pictures of it. It's the big, open one with the kinda design/artsy stuff on the cement. Let me know if you want me to send you any of the info she sent me. She only sent info on JSAV, but for the ipod hookups they seem to be decently priced so I think it will be ok. I just emailed them to see the charge for an extra hour and extra speaker (to make 2 speakers). 

 

Now that the planning is coming along I have emailed Lily at Zuniga about my decor and some rentals. I emailed her Friday morning, but haven't heard anything back. How long does she normal take to respond? Does anyone know?

 

My travel agent says my room block is good until 60 days out (February 22nd is 60 days until our big day) and we just recently had a rush of bookings. People definitely waited until the last minute. Hang in there!! When I talked to Marisol she said we were at 58 nights (even my whole family hasn't booked yet - they are total procrastinators) so I think we will for sure hit 75 nights. It will be great to get some final numbers and get to work on my welcome bags and figuring everything else out. I emailed Marvin about flowers for my BMs, and boutonnieres for the boys so I am done with that... I think we are finally moving right along. I emailed Marisol to ask about the cost of adding an extra hour to my reception, because if I do a cocktail hour and 3 hour reception I am going over the 3 hour per day max on private events - has anyone heard if they strictly enforce that? or know the cost?

 

What does Norma charge for makeup? I know it's probably been said, sorry, I couldnt find it. Kristie, what time is your ceremony??

Marisol was my planner too!!

 

I had some sour experiences with her at first (it wasn't her fault she wasn't fully informed on the situation when the Wedding dept got transferred from Miami to Cancun) and after that rough patch she was nothing but nice to me and helped me take care of everything! :)

 

I had booked my wedding when the events were still unlimited hours so I don't know if they strictly enforce it but I can tell you that it really all depends on your wedding coordinator (onsite)- if she wants a good tip she'll give you anything you want!!! So I would just wait until you have your onsite meeting with your WC when you get to Mexico to decide if you want to add on that extra hour if Marisol tells you it costs a lot! Just what I gathered from my wedding! :)

Hi Jenni,

 

Norma charges $100 for the brides makeup and $50.00 per bridesmaid. Someone posted her email above.

 

I am interested in doing the cocktail hour after ceremony + a 3 hour reception. But I was also told there is a 3 hour per day limit. Let me know what your planner tell you on that :-)

 

My email is nicolew412@gmail.com. I'd really appreciate it if you could email me the private function location pictures you have. I was wanting to do the reception on the sky terrace with pool and bar.

 

Good luck with everything!

 

- Nicole

Oh, I didn't think about that. I highly doubt it! Makeup and hair people will only be there for 2 hours at most. If anything, you may just have to pay a $90 day pass.

Nicole, 

 

I forwarded you both emails Marisol has sent me so you'll have all the info.

 

GOOD QUESTION, NURSEBROOKE!!! I'd love to hear feedback about this too! I agree, Nicole - I think you pay a guest pass for someone to come in for makeup. Still kind of a rip off since they aren't eating and drinking all day. Oh well! I am torn about having someone do my makeup or I have a sorta friend that does makeup here that said shed be happy to work with me on how to do it, what to buy, etc. to do it myself. So I feel a little torn!!

 

On the 3 hour per day limit... My wedding is at 6, so I am thinking cocktails 6:30-7:30 and reception to 7:30-10:30, but outside things are supposed to stop at 10. I've read that they aren't really strict on that either, but hard to know until you're there I guess. So I could just need to add a half hour, haha! I will let you know what I hear back on adding an hour. That will be a worst case scenario. Hoping maybe we can sneak by...

I think it is just whatever you think....there is no set amount.  My WC did an amazing job so I tipped her $50 and then I tipped my welcome dinner lady $10 since I had my welcome dinner at Moon Palace and not Sun Palace.  I don't think there is a right or wrong amount.
