    MP does provide a cake cutting knife and serving spatula. The knife is a serrated dinner knife. Pete actually cut the cake with the serving spatula and then Lily (our WC) came over and made us do it again with the real knife.

    I saw a post awhile back asking for feedback on Lily - she's fantastic. She was with us from 5:30-8:30 making sure everything went as planned. I had read a review by Marie (I think) who said her WC was pretty much missing in action and that was not my exp at all. Lily is wonderful, very organized, patient, and accommodating.

The resort is currently running at about 35% occupancy which means there are no issues finding chairs by the pool and getting quick service. The downfall of the low occupancy is that MP has decided to cut costs by closing the disco (they actually said it is closed for maint but we believe it just isn't economically feasible to keep it open when there are so few people). They have also closed one of the pool bar restauant but the other restaurant is not far and any of the wait staff will take your order and deliver your food. We've also heard that their occupancy is going to be even less next week - it's crazy the effect the media has had (swine flu blowout).

    Moon Palace Grand is amazing. Switch your reservations to that side if you can.

    Congratulations Cami! You're a married woman now! I can't wait to read your review and see some pics :) I'm glad everything worked out for you!

    Just a quick question whenever you get a chance, was your wedding at 6pm? What was the weather like during your ceremony and what time did the sun set? My wedding is around the same time next year at 5pm. Is it still really hot at that time? Thanks!

      Camie, DrTracey, or momslehcar! This may sound like a crazy question but was there an iron in the rooms at MP? My FI has to iron every stitch of clothing he puts on, including shorts and tee shirts.

          Yes Tina, there are irons in every room. We had the grooms suit pressed, they charged 20$

            Congrats Camie...can't wait to see pictures!!! That's crazy about the low occupancy but you can't complain about quick service. Stupid swine flu...hopefully it blows over soon.

                Good to know. Pressing of my dress is included in the package we purchased so we can drop his suit off at the same time I drop mine off.

                  Did you cancel your wedding? This mornings news and news from the Cancun area looks positive!

                    Yes the wedding was at 6pm and by that time the temperature had gone down a little bit but not much. I would say that it was probably close to 90 but it felt more like 85 because of the breeze. The sunset around 7:15 and I knew that going in and that is why we wanted to have our family photo session prior to the ceremony otherwise all of the photos would have been in the dusk.
