Thanks for all the support, ladies!! I told Marisol I would be willing to move the ceremony to 5:30, just because I don't want to risk the noise being a problem during the ceremony. I think that when we print a little itinerary for the week for the welcome bags, that hopefully people won't even remember the invitations said 6 PM!! I also told her I would be willing to move the reception to beach, but I would not be paying any additional per person fee, because the Infinity Terrace has a 40 person max for the dinner and we have over 60 people. The Sky Terrace is booked, Palenque Terrace is booked, and we are not coming all the way to Mexico to have it the in ballroom (I really want to be outside). So all that is left that can accommodate our large group is the beach. So she said as an act of good faith they would wave the fees. Hooray!! So we will be Sky Wedding Deck for ceremony at 5:30, cocktails on Infinity Terrace at 6 and reception on the beach at 7. I am so pleased. I looked and it's a full moon that night. I think a reception on the beach will be beautiful, I just didn't consider it before because of all the extra costs. It all worked itself out. AND we our having our welcome cocktails and dinner on the Sky Terrace on Thursday night. So we have covered everything. Now I have contacted Zuniga for all our rentals and we are finally moving right a long!! Yay!

 

NeeNee, I just said that I was not going to sign my contract and send my deposit until they could confirm that location for me, because it is why were choosing Beach Palace. It only took like 2 emails and it was done. That was when it was the Miami office though, do I don't know if the have gotten stricter on it now that everything is out of Mexico. Good Luck!!

How were you guys allowed to bookthe sky deck before 90 days out? Every time i asked i was told they wont even consider it until 90 days befits the wedding.

 

Once you're in contact with your wedding planner they should be able to confirm your location! Your coordinator that deals with the room blocking won't confirm anything, just the wedding planner. My wedding isn't until July and I've confirmed ceremony, cocktail, and reception locations. Good luck!

That's awesome Jenni! Congrats! Everything happens for a reason. Now it looks like it's a blessing in disguise. The reception will be beautiful on the beach :-)

Has anyone heard if you can get away with bringing centerpieces from home and not paying the $300 a table?! I was not sure if I should mention it early or just bring them and hope for the best. I don't want to pay for a centerpiece I do not like and I am just making something very small.

I havent really heard on that one way or the other, but I have heard if you are renting some things from Zuniga that they will sometimes set some of your decor up for you free of charge (since you are already paying them a set up fee). If you are renting anything from them, might be a possibility....

 

 

Past brides, when do you pay for your Zuniga rentals, JSAV stuff, etc? I know Marisol will add it to my "purchase order" but when do I make any payment on that? I haven't heard anything from Marisol all week!

I brought my own centerpieces- and they set them up for me free of charge (only because my wp showed up to our meeting an hour and a half late so she waived the cost)  I believe they charge $150+ set up fee if you bring your own decorations depending on how much you bring.  I just told Marisol I would decide whether I was going to set it up or if I would have the resort do it when I got there so do not add that to my purchase order.

You will need to pay your purchase order 30 days before your wedding date.   Marisol will give you the final purchase order a few days before your 30 days to look it over!

 

And just a piece of advice- make sure you print out everything!! Moon Palace tried to charge me for everything from my wedding that I already paid for via my purchase order! luckily I had the purchase order and the receipt for the credit card payment from Marisol printed and in my binder or else I would have been double charged when I checked out! ugh I was annoyed with that!

My wedding planner Margarita let me know she would be out of the office all week. Perhaps they are in some offsite training or something? I wouldnt stress. I believe we pay 30 days out.

Hi all, 

I am getting married at the Beach Palace in June 2013 and keep seeing stuff about zuniga rentals. Do they have a website where you can see what they offer with prices? 

 

Thanks!
