    Personally, I don't think it is necessary to purchase the extra lighting for the reception - we had our reception at the T bugambilia (sp) terrace in the middle of the resort and they had lamp posts - prettier but I don't know what else to call them - anyways it was definitly enough lighting for us - It is not pitch black or even really dark at all!

We are getting married here and having a symbolic ceremony there but I still think we need to be there early. Is anyone doing this? We both need to get passports and I'm not sure whether to get one now or wait until May (we are just going to the courthouse to marry ourselves) and then get a passport with my new name?


      Do you have a WC yet? They should be able to email you the pics of the cocktail receptions so you can choose one.

        MsLeBlanc - I wouldn't wait until May to apply for your passports if your wedding is in July - last I heard, it was taking three plus months for passport applications to go through! I'm pushing my family and friends to apply now and my wedding is also in July.

        When I got my passport last year, it took two months, and then when I got it, my name was spelled wrong and I had to send it back. I know if you get married, they have a form you can fill out to get your passport changed, which might be quicker than doing the whole passport process. Or, you could wait until you get back in July to change your name!

        Good luck!

The girls there are usually pretty good at helping with make-up for your skin type. Have you tried mineral makeup?? It's so great!! It's light and powder only, no cakey foundation! My friend also has extra sensitive skin and she uses it and loves it. It's has such amazing coverage. It evens out my skin on those blotchy days! I'm just worried about my eyes.. I bought all new brushes and now I have to learn how to use them LOL!

          Good Luck ladies, I'm sure you will look beautiful :)
          Yeah, they are just building a sephora near me, so maybe it will be up soon! I have no idea when it's opening. Otherwise, I'm sure the Aveda salon I usually go to will be just fine. I NEVER wear make up, so I should go soon - I have a lot of learning to do!

            Thanks for the advice! I will just get a passport now and change my name when we get back from the wedding. That sucks that it takes so long...I will need to start pushing my family and friends to get them as well!!

              We just applied for our passports mid-November and had them in hand within 3 weeks, without any kind of rush delivery. The huge rush and backlog for everyone to get their's is over. I would get it done now, just in case something should arise, but its not going to take six months like it was in 2005/2006. The gal at our county clerk office stated that if you get married and change your name, you can file a name change free of charge.

              For further information check out their website:

                Hello ladies,

                I am new here - and we are confirmed at MP on November 28th - I think I saw someone else is that day, too? We are at 4pm! Anyhow, we are going to MP in a couple weeks for a preview trip... what are some things we should do during that time? Any recommendations or things we should get out of the way? Our wedding is not until November - so we may need to go again once it gets closer - any thoughts? We have an appointment with the wedding coordinator on Monday afternoon, but that is about it.

                Thanks!!

                Jen

                  Does anyone know when you have to pay for items like the private reception, music, flowers, etc? Do you pay for this when you arrive at the resort and finalize everything or do you pay in advance?

                    Camie, I'm wondering that too!! Our WC, Maribe, said it's all reserved for us.. I thought we had to pay for 50% now and the rest when we get there?

                    Also, Maribel says we are reserved for the Tucan Terrrace.. has anyone had their reception/cocktail party there? What's it like?

                      So I think I have narrowed it down, and I am 75% sure I will be planning my wedding at the Moon Palace resorts. I was hoping that people could share with me why they've chosen Moon Palace. I know that many have probably shared already, but there's over 100 pages to search through in this thread, and I'd really like to get some feedback from people who will be getting married there soon. Thanks!
