    Did I misunderstand something ?
    This is an email that I received back today from Moon Palace when I asked about the outside photographer. I do NOT have my photographer booked yet btw, lol but of course they don't know that! It seems that if you are pretty persistant and the photographer is from mexico, they are flexible.

    Hi Yenci,

    Once you have booked your wedding with us, I will provide you with your on site wedding planner. At that time, your photographer is going to have to get in contact with the wedding planner so that they can advise the photographer of the documentation that needs to be provided to the resort. In this case, you will only have to purchase the wedding pass for her.



    We do not allow outside vendors, so when you are making the reservation make a note in comments that you are bringing an outside vendor. That way we can make notes in our system and make the exception.



    Thank you.

    Kind Regards

    Thank you Yesenia for getting back to me so quickly. I would have to pay for the photographer to stay at the hotel? That doesn't make sense if the photographer lives in mexico and will be coming only for my ceremony/reception? I thought that I would only have to pay the day pass for her? I have already booked her.

    Hi Yencie,



    If you were to take your own photographer, they would have to stay at the resort as one of your guests. As for the site inspection, please fill out the attached form and fax back to our office at your earliest convenience so we can schedule your appointment with an on site wedding planner.



    Thank you for contacting us:

      Ok everytime I try to open a picture or an attached file on this forum it tells me that I do not have permission....Does anybody know if this has anything to do with the amount of points that you have? How many points do I need to see attachments?

        I think you have to have 150 posts to open attachments. I feel like I post on this thing waaaaaaay too much, but I still have several posts to go! I think they just want everyone to equally contribute to the site.

          Fabi, I will attempt to put it somewhere tonight. I haven't tried to pull anything from the DVD so I don't know if they have it write protected or not.

          I love the DVD. It captured so much of the wedding and afterwards. It is a very nice thing to have for memories.

              Just how windy was it when you were there? I'm trying to decide on a hairstyle and I keep hearing that it's best to put it all up, away from your face b/c of strong winds? Is that true?

              Also, this is probably a dumb question but is there A/C in the rooms?
              MrsEddy,

              There is A/C in the rooms.

              It is pretty breezy. I chose to wear my hair up based on reviews from other Cancun brides. If you are getting married in am open gazebo, you face away from the ocean and the breeze is coming in from behind you.

              We chose to hand out our bags before the trip down. We were glad we did it this way because it just made everything a little easier and less stressful before the wedding. AND we didn't have to have so much to bring with us.

              We took clothes for 11 days, beach towels, our ceremony stuff (Sand ceremony items & fans), tons of suncreen, thank you cards and envelopes, and the makings for a couple extra bags (we had some extra guests show up and this was good). We had two large suitcases each, our carry-ons and my dress.

                Hi all

                Need some help as always!!

                Birth certificates - I've just noticed we need to take "authenticated" certificates - what does that mean? Do they need to have an apostilles on it?

                Also, can it be the abbreviated certificate...or do i need to get a full cert?! This is the only part of all this i'm getting stressed about...and boy am i stressed! I don't wanna turn up there with the wrong stuff!!lol


                On another note...i contacted my contact at mp a few weeks ago and asked if i could have an outside photographer, and asked if there were any excepts and got told there were no exceptions and yes i could have an outside photographer...full stop!! its soo bad we are all getting told different things. I'm going to print out the emails I have and take them with me as proof incase anything starts to go wrong when we are there!

                  About the photographer: I emailed them and said I had a "family friend" staying at the resorts and taking my pictures for me. She said that was totally fine, as long as they are staying there. I also asked about bringing my own DJ and they said that was fine. Although this is Le Blanc, I think the Palace resorts all have the same rules. Definitely print out everything you have any writing!!

                    Did you rent the sound system? We are thinking about bringing an ipod docking station with speakers since we have such a small group....
                    Yes, we rented the ipod system. It worked fine with my iphone. I'm glad we did, especially because we ended up in the bigger reception area. I'm not sure if a docking system would have projected enough. And, I don't think my luggage could have handled one more thing! LOL.

                      I brought an American photographer. I paid for her to stay at the resort, and I never told anyone or asked if it was okay. No one said anything about it. I think as long as they are your 'guest', it's not a big deal, particularly if they are American and not Mexican.
