    Getting Married at the Moon Palace

    I am an MP Bride as well....wedding coming up in just over a month. Congrats to you!...and welcome. We have 57 guests coming and are having a private receptions as well. I think we will keep our decorations fairly simple; using only tealights and seashells. Sorry I can't be any help about the decoration company. I think my WC had sent some info on prices for decorations though (and they were expensive!) Do you have an assigned WC yet?

Hey There! Where is the Art Terrace? Is that by one of the gazebos?

It wasn't quite the picture I had in my mind but I've to adjust. You might be able to wait a bit longer...I see you are getting married in May. I bet you just want to get it done though!

    Moon palace bride 09

    Hello and welcome! Congrats on your engagement! I am a MP bride....our date is Feb 21/08. It is coming up so fast. We booked through a travel agent...and I think we are missing out on few promotions because of that. OUr wedding is at 4pm and then private reception starting at 6pm. We extended it until 10pm. We will be bringing our own music instead of renting the DJ. We have 56 guests joing us and we are just thrilled abou that. If you have any other questions I can certainly try to answer them for you.

    colors- aqua? coral?

    I am using coral as my main colour...the bridesmaids dresses mostly. Tan and Chocolate brown will be other accent colours. Not too sure what colour flowers I will go with. Sorry, don't have any pics

I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful to be realistic to remember the limitations of being human. It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy. I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes.†It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children. It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back. It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments. My friend gave me the book and I love it That's beautiful!

    anyone used moon palace photographers?

    I would be interested to see these as well!
  10. My mom is quite upset about this. They know that both mom and FMIL are wanted in attendence. My FMIL has to fly here so would need to plan. I have let them know that I want them there. I guess other than that I will just keep my nose out of it, let them do their thing and I will attend. As it is right now though, my mom won't be able to make it. I know my cousin has a bit of a vindictive side and is probably mad that my mom shot down her intial idea. My mom's argument is that they shouldn't have asked for her opinion. I don't want this to get blown out of proportion. BUt I also don't think I should get myself in the middle of it all.
  11. We used: __ Yes, we have our swimsuits and dancing shoes packed! ___ No, can't make the trip but wishing you well. Hope that is helpful!

    Wedding Rehearsal

    I would think it is probably a good idea to have one. Your officiant doesn't really have to be there. He probably know what he needs to do. Plus, everyone could go to dinner afterwards and spend the evening together.
  13. Okay...so my bridesmaids have said they are going to throw me a shower/stagette. I had told them in the beginning that I didn't want one because we are asking our guests not to buy us gifts and I thought having a shower contradicted that. Anyway, they insist and I feel that if they really want to then let them. Well, they were initially thinking of doing a "surprise" shower for me. My MOH (who is my cousin) asked my mom what she thought of it and my mom told it was a stupid idea. She doesn't hold anything back! I really don't like surprises so this was not going to be okay with me either. Well know they have set the date and started telling people but didn't check with my mom or my FMIL. I just think this is wrong. I don't want to get involved and I really don't know what my role is here. HELP!!

    moon palace wedding Uk bride

    Welcome! and Congrats! I am a Moon Palace bride as well. Our date in February 21/08...not too much longer. We have about 54 guests coming. We are so thrilled with the turnout. I just booked our private reception today. We will be using the resort photographer...I would like to see some pics too. How many guests do you have coming? What I can't figure out....how do we let all of the guests know which gazebo or ballroom to go to I think we have to tell him individually??

    At Home Reception Ideas Needed

    You ladies have put some great ideas out there. I am stuck as to what to do for our AHR. First we weren't going to have one but now we that we have been getting back more "no" replies we feel that we better have an AHR. We live in a pretty small town that doesn't have much for venues to host at and my in-laws do not want a dance. I'm just not sure what else to do. Of course we will do the slideshow DVD thing and perhaps appetizers and drinks....but after that I am afraid everyone will leave and go opposite directions and still be early in the evening or that everyone will sit around and stare at each and have a horrible time.
