About Mrs D To Be!

  1. Come on Woodsy - I'm dying for your review!! I no I no, what is this woman like, she's already married, but hey, I wanna relive it!!
  2. If I remember right, we had a song playing for hubbie walking down the aisle, one for the bridesmaid, one for my entrance, one in the middle, think when we were signing stuff, and one at the end. Hope this helps
  3. Hi guys, trying to work my way around the new layout...does anyone know how to do it? Â Thanks in advance!
  4. lol i should really change my username...i hadn't thought about it until now...thanks for pointing that out to me....dohh!! Â who have you contacted?
  5. Moon Palace is HUGE! I couldn't have imagined walking from my room to the gazebo, in my dress, or in the heat! Don't get me wrong, we did walk a lot at MP every other day, however I wouldn't have been up for doing that on wedding day. At first when we chose MP I wasn't interested in the horse and carriage, but the more photos I saw the more convinced I got. Now, I'm soo glad we done it...what an entrance! Â If your really against it, you could go for a golf buggy... Â
  6. We got married in May at Moon Palace and had Citlalli Rico as our photographer - she was amazing and I'd recommend her to anyone.  To hire an outside photographer is expensive, there's no way around it, it was the single most expensive part of our wedding except our accommodation! However we decided very earlier on that if people were will to travel all that way (uk to mexico) to see us get married, the least we could do was have amazing photos to give them afterwards. There are things we do regret doing, like paying something like $600 for the firedancers, or moving to le blanc the 2nd week when moon palace is just as good, however paying out for Citlalli we 100% do not regret. The photos are the memories we hold of our wedding, so we all want them to be good ones.  There are some good "cheaper" options if Citlalli is out of your price range...i've saw some of moments that matters work lately that blew me away. Whoever you go with, I'd strongly suggest you go with an outside vendor, you won't regret it!  If you need anymore info on Citlalli please see my moon palace review, or pm me  PS - the game over t-shirts - hubbie bought us them to wear at the airport....I swear to go EVERYWHERE we looked someone was wearing them they are very popular over there, so what out!
  7. If you are hiring an outside photographer you need to book them a nights stay...some people have gotten away with a day pass in the past, however palace resorts have been known to be fussy about this, so to be safe its best to book a nights stay for the wedding night. We hired the amazing Citlalli Rico, we had her and her lovely assistant (and sister) Tammi from 4-10 on our wedding day, then had a 2 hour TTD session, and including the nights stay, I think we came in at just under $3600. A lot of money but OH SO worth it...our pictures are our memories and are crazy amazing!
  8. fantastic review...makes me want to do it all over again

From everything I looked at, it doesn't look that much better than MP but the price is A LOT different. I think I would have preferred The Royal but oh well we aren't paying for it so I can't really complain! We just wanted a separate resort, I would have been happy with Beach Palace or Cancun Palace and there wouldn't have been an up charge. Thanks for the info though. Waw it sounds like your plans are similar to mine...good choice!hehe I think if you aren't paying for it then you'll LOVE it! But we paid all that extra money for LeBlanc, and even the staff at MP were saying how they'd love to work at LeBlanc because its a different class...but I just didn't notice a huge enough difference. Don't get me wrong, the place is spotless, soo gorgeous and modern, but the service really isn't any better than what we got at MP...the rooms are definitely smaller, and I suppose we were spoilt at MP not having anyone above us or really next door either, but still, all the promo palace resorts do trying to make LeBlanc stand out from all other palace resorts (I mean it isn't even advertised properly on the palace resorts website because it has its own...whats that all about?!) you'd expect the rooms to at least be sound proof...no!? Anyway, don't let my review make you nervous, because I think I may be the only negative review in the history of the place!! If you don't believe me check out trip advisor!lol I just think we were spoilt at MP having our dream wedding with all our family, we just didn't want to leave them!

But me being me needed an update, and they are almost done!yeah!! So won't be much longer...depending on the postal service right enough! I'll be honest and say I think it will be too windy for hair down - even in the gazebo. We had a videographer booked right up til the last few weeks of our wedding planning, when we swapped that money over to the firedancers, so we don't have proper footage of the wedding. However one of our guests tried her hardest to get as much footage as poss for us, and we watched it the other weekend. It reminded me of how windy it was. My veil was blowing about the place in the gazebo and at the beach for the photos. But in saying that, as long as your hair isn't too short, you could position yourself against the wind and fight it...the ceremony isn't that long?! That sounds mad doesn't it...but its your wedding day, don't let the wind get in your way!! I have naturally curly hair, but had my hair back, with my side fringe...my hair is hilarious!! In the room getting ready...gorgeous, perfect even....in the gazebo and on the beach for photos...weird, but still straight...reception...ohmigawd!!! curly and messy...just soo bad...and I didn't even know!! Didn't think to carry a mirror around with me, and didn't need a toilet break and didn't think to go to the bathroom...jjeeezz!! Damn heat!!hahaha
