    Hi,

     

    What I know is you get plain white chairs with plain white linen, nothing else, no flowers for reception or anything else.  You have to add all the decor, chair sashes, table runners, flowers, candles, etc.

     

    Who's your WC?

    So... I don't have a confirmed reception are yet (working on that) but it's likely that it will be outdoors. I have yet to get in touch with my WC because she's been out ALL week. I have been reassured that she will return, she just hasn't. I'm getting antsy because naturally I'd like to confirm my space so i can start to think about decorations.

     

    It is likely that I will use Deco Cancun as i will not have to pay a vendor fee. Does anyone know what the complimentary package (with unlimited private events) comes with? These are questions I'd ask my WC but... you know the rest. Are the White Avangard chairs included with the reception setup? Or are they the covered white chairs?

     

    I only ask because I'd like to have an idea of what the bare bones reception space will look like so i can kind of plan what kind of things from DecoCancun I'd like to rent.

    I had the comlimentary reception- .  I brought the ceterpieces, maracas and chair bows and table runnners- everything else is proved by the resort.

     

    For some reason i cannot upload a pic- but I should have  a pic on my profile under my album!

    Hey everyone,

     

    I'm trying to decide between Dreams and Moon Palace for my wedding (hopefully in June, 2014).  A little concerned that the MP packages don't include the reception, as I'd like to make this a private event, but thinking that with all the resort credit, complimentary functions, etc it'd be about the same in the end. I also don't want to make it too expensive for my guests so I was wondering what some of the rates are that you're getting quoted for their stays.

     

    Thanks in advance!

     

    Nicole

        Does anyone know what to expect for gratuities? I kind of forgot to account for these in my budget and have no real idea what to expect! 

        Thanks

        We tipped each person of the wait staff individually $10 (you have to hand it to them or they make keep it all for themselves!) Along with the tips they got throughout the night.  I tipped our wedding coordinator $50 as she did a great job!   I think we had about 7 or 8 people to tip with bartenders, chefs and servers! Hope this helps! :)

          Hi fellow brides, Congratulations to all of you! I'm full of excitement and of course stress!!!! We have to do a totally last-minute wedding due to family illness and I've taken the plunge. Friends of ours are memebers of the Palace and Hard Rock resorts, so we booked our group through them so everyone has the memeber-level benefits. But, I really wish I could have used a TA. I know I'll be getting a ton of calls about travel arrangements. Yikes! If you're not booking through membership, definitely use a travel agent! Anyway - I need to set up a destination wedding website ASAP. Any recommendations? I'm going shopping for a dress tomorrow (rush delivery please!). What else do I need todo right away? Thanks!!!

            We just locked down June 20, 2014.  I do love the collections they have but I would love to see pictures of the collections from actual weddings.  I think we are going to go with the exotic peacock.

              Thanks Shan! Seems like gratuities will end up being similar to a wedding here! Just something I forgot to account for in the budget!

                Girls,

                Who is your wedding planner (not onsite wedding coordinator)?

                I have one person who did the membership group booking. And, then I will be passed on to a planner (not onsite).  Now would be the time for me to ask for a specific person if I had a preference.

                 

                Do you recommend anyone?

                 

                Thanks
