Hi all

I'm trying to wrap my head around the site inspection. I'm looking to get married at MP in August 2016, my date isn't confirmed yet and haven't signed my contract yet. Since I'm going to a wedding in Playa in January 2015 I thought I'd book my site inspection at MP. I've emailed MP directly but find the responses I'm getting aren't very clear so I thought it might be better to ask my questions here :)

Should I sign the wedding contract before I book my site inspection or does it not matter? The rate I've been given is $246US per night but they didn't ask me when I plan on going or how many people will be in the room (we have a daughter who will be 2 by the time we travel). I'm assuming you have to book thought the hotel directly otherwise they can't/won't apply it to your wedding, right?

Any advice you have is appreciated!!

I did the site inspection at Le Blanc (a palace resort) after I booked my wedding but since I knew I was definitely having the wedding there I knew that we would get the money back/credited to our wedding account.  So I'm not sure if you are a hundred percent certain it will be at Moon Palace or if you have other places in mind you could take advantage of the discounted rate and visit other sites to compare. If Moon Palace is your number one resort then at least you know you'll get credited back the money if you decide to book it after, so essentially you are only paying for your flights.

 

On my 3 day site visit I got meet with our on site wedding coordinator and do a thorough walk through of the entire hotel and see all of our options location wise.  We also did a food and cake tasting and met with the chef which was great.  I found the site visit helpful and worth it for my peace of mind to know that my wedding was in good hands.  If you can swing it and its in the budget I recommend it.  

 

As for you daughter, see if kids are free if they are then you are only paying $738.00 for the weekend (plus flight).  I think for us at Le Blanc we paid around $319 a night and now have $957 in our wedding account that we are using for extra entertainment at the wedding.  Also another tip if you go for the site visit it has to be 3 nights at the discounted rate and for us there weren't any resort credits that we could use so keep that in mind. Let me know if you have any other questions.  :)

That is the same rate that I was quoted this week. I would confirm your wedding date prior to booking the site inspection. That way you will for sure be able to apply the cost of the trip to your wedding balance.
