  1. Hi Ladies, I am working on my review right now - sorry its taking so long but hopeful I will have it out in the next couple of days For anyone who is a little anxious don't worry - your getting married in paradise and it will all turn perfectly Talk to you soon Amber
  2. Speaking as a soon to be Moon Palace Bride your review is incredibly helpful! Your pictures look wonderful and you made a beautiful bride
  3. FutureMrsMoulton, I was given the name and contact info for my wedding coordinator at the resort but she is on holidays until November 30th so it's not much help...Hopefully she emails me back sometime this week so I can start confirming things like which gazebo and what not... Have you heard anything?
  4. FutureMrsMoulton - your dress looks great! Hope you had fun at your shower!
  5. susieq your dress looks amazing its looks like a very shimmery material so you will look absolutely radiant under the Mexican sun

My TA advises that she has asked the tour operator to resolve this of which she feels will work itself out. Why the run around?? If I book the minimum amount of rooms it makes no sense -if I book through the travel agency or MP directly . Money is $ . I kind of got the same run around when we went to book our group. I was told that as long as I have a group contract I get all the amenities (which I do have according to my travel agent). I was just assigned my onsite wedding coordinator this week so I have asked her to check into this and to make sure that I do get the group promotion and that I won't need to pay for my private reception. I will let you know how that goes for me

It usually goes something like this "mmm this sandwich is good, especially the pickle - should I serve pickles at my reception? speaking of my reception did I tell you...."
  8. So today is the first time I have seen what my bridesmaids dresses look like in the right color (they didn't have any dresses in the right color when we tried them on so I was able to see what the style of the dress looked like on the bridesmaids, but not the color) Tell me what you think **Hopefully this works - its the first time I have uploaded photos on here

I'm not too worried about it - She's my Fiance's little sister so I can't really ask her not to come but really at the end of the day she is just making herself look like an ass and my getting all worked about it won't solve anything... Besides - it would be a pretty dull wedding if the bridal party didn't cause a little drama along the way Other than some minor girl drama I think I am pretty much on top of things. My dress is done - just waiting on the alterations, FI's suit is pretty much done (needs to be tailored and he needs a tie but other than that he's good), Bridesmaid dresses are done - I'm going in tomorrow to see what they look like in person, groomsmen are kinda done (they know what to get...now they just need to get it). Rings are done, Wedding Ceremony is booked, Honeymoon is confirmed... so really my stress level is pretty low right now (which is maybe why I am willing to not let my bridesmaids issues bother me) How is everyone else doing?

The resort did cancel my wedding a few months ago - apparently I have booked my date over a big conference so they didn't really want to do weddings that day - too bad for them I already had a signed contract so they agreed to do it anyways... Oh and I do have one bridesmaid that apparently did not know that it's customary to throw a bridal shower for the bride so she informed my other bridesmaids that she didn't feel that she should have to participate in it or pay for anything since she wasn't aware of this event (you can imagine how well that went over with my other bridesmaids). Personally I don't really care if I get one or not I just found it funny how she told the rest of the bridal party "she wasn't aware of this event" so I guess I do have a few entertaining stories - nothing as good as waking up and beating up on my fiance though
