    I'm new to this website...We're getting married at MP in 6/26/09 and I couldn't be more excited...and nervous! I've been looking at this thread and have seen a lot of very helpful tips. I've seen several people mention various outside photographers that they are bringing, rather than using the MP photographers because the quality isn't so great. Has anyone used the MP photographers and been really disappointed? Or thrilled and would suggest the MP photographers to me? I'm starting to worry because I don't know how difficult it will be to find a photographer in the time before the wedding. Thanks!

      Halegrifa , thank you for the menu. What great Ideas. I'm gonna use so for them.
      Well ladies I just found out yesterday from the mami office that I have made it mto 71 room nites. YES! I still have guest that haven't booked,at least 3. That should do it.I'm on my way to the unlimited parties. I have 40 Days to go and this was domn to the last min. I had to send out the big ROOM BLOCKS ARE CLOSING e-mail before people got it. So ladies don't worry people will book at the last min, it doesn't do much for you nerves but just hold on. I very happy to get the free week. I am so excited to have my wedding at the Moon Palace. I am definitly going to post links for everyone to check out my pics.We'll gotta go to work be back on at 5pm.

        I'm not sure why some are saying negative things about the MP photographers but everything I've seen has been amazing. My own pictures receive compliments like "I've never seen wedding pictures like these!" or "The colors are beautiful!", etc. Now if you are looking for something different, more artistic, etc....that's something quite different but that doesn't have anything to do with the quality. I was thrilled with my photographs from the very beginning and remain so.

          Hi Liz,

          We hired Tammsphotos.com - Tammara & Grant Terry (based of out the US) Tamm's Photos - Wedding Photography Intro

          ~ they travel to Mexico and shoot weddings - They were amazing and so much fun - they were like guests and have become friends . . . actually we are meeting up with them again in Mexico 2010 for some fun and photos!!

          I would suggest if you are looking to hire an outside photographer they are it! Excellent package and amazing quality!!

          MP Photographers - we decided to go with hiring a destination wedding photographer, as I wanted specifics and detail - as well there are time limits with the onsite photographers.

          We purchased the Deluxe Wedding Package - this package included photography - seeing as we had hired photographers, I had the MP photographer attend our Welcome Dinner. He did 1 1/2 of shooting and they were awesome - he was wicked - we ended up receiving a photo album (the photographer selects and puts this together) and we purchased all of the negatives - SOOOO Nice!

          Wishing you the best of luck
          Laura

            Hi Katt

            Happy to help! Our menu was wicked - loads of food and beautifully displayed.

            Wow - you have so many guests - way to go! Who is your WC?

            Enjoy every minute :)

            Wishing you all the best

              Ladies,

              Does anyone happen to have a price list for the Moon Palace favors that they have pictured on their website? Also, does anyone know how much they charge to purchase freeze dried petals through them?

              Cheers,
              Myen

                    I need some help/details here... We have never stayed at an All Inclusive resort before and aren't quite sure how the bracelet thing works. I know they put them on you and you can't take them off...but what if you do or what if you lose one?

                    And how do they know that you are staying at the resort not just on a day pass? Are they different colors? How do they stop people from just coming and going from the resort? Is there just like one little door to get in and out of the resort so you can't just walk in like most resorts?

                    Sorry for all the questions...I am just trying to get an idea of what its like so I can be prepared when we arrive.

                    Thank you!

                      And another question...if you sit in on the timeshare pitch thingy...what do they give you in return? I have heard a credit to the spa or golfing...is that true? If so how much do you get? Thank you again!
