  1. Hi everyone! It's been a couple of weeks since my ceremony at MP but I promise to get my review up soon! Overall, it was a great experience!! I'll detail more later and share the pics, but I do have to pass on one comment...it was with our wedding coordinator, Cristina Suarez. I think she's usually fine, but she LITERALLY interrupted our ceremony before the priest told us to kiss and urged us to walk out so she could talk to us about moving our reception inside. It was very unprofessional and several of my guests commented on how odd it was. I think she was flustered because of the inclement weather, but it was a bit disconcerting. Our guests commented on it, and so I just wanted to pass it along to the other brides on this forum. If Cristina is your wedding coordinator, I might make sure she understands what's going on during your ceremony. The rest of the day was fabulous, I'm sure that it was a completely random fluke, but worth mentioning!
  2. Hi snoopash! Just wanted to say hi--I just realized we're getting married on the same date! Best of luck with everything!
  3. Hi! Does anyone else happen to have Cristina Suarez as their WC? I'm having a hard time having her respond to any of my e-mails, and with two weeks to go, it's getting a little frustrating....also, has anyone else had their reception at the Bugambilias Terrace? or the Venado Terrace? I'm booked at the Bugambilias terrace but am worried that it will be too big for my group of 30. I really wanted the same rooftop terrace that vgirl had, but it looks like someone beat me to the punch!
  4. Thanks for the rooftop terrace info, Veronica! I'm getting married May 29th and am trying to switch my reception to the rooftop terrace. Not having a lot of luck waiving the fee...they claim it's stated in our group contract. Do you mind if I ask when you signed your group contract? I'm trying to pinpoint when the policy changed.
  5. Hi everyone! I'm a May 29th, 2010 Moon Palace bride and I'm having a Catholic ceremony. Is anyone else doing a Catholic ceremnony? Has anyone else had experience with Fr. Aguilar? Is he the priest people are saying has poor English? Also, did you pick all of your readings beforehand and submit them to him months in advance or did you do that when you got on site?

Janina is my Miami WC. Does anyone know how long it takes to receive the wedding contract after you confirm the date? Will the wedding contract also contain the group booking contract? Oh wow! Congrats! I'm getting married the same day at 4 p.m.! Which gazebo are you getting married at? We're at the Immaculate Conception chapel in Nizuc!

We were told that it's a symbolic ceremony and not a legally binding marriage. Yes! I'm having a Catholic ceremony on May 29, 2010--they indicated ours was was only a symbolic ceremony as well--we're getting married legally in the U.S. beforehand so we can skip the bloodwork.

    Moon Palace Catholic Wedding

    Thank you so much everyone! I hope to hear from more couples who have had Catholic ceremonies in Cancun!
  9. This is a great idea! Thank you! Did you ever consider Moon Palace for your Catholic ceremony? That's where my fiance and I are looking. Quick question--are you doing a full Catholic Mass? Have you spoken with the priest who is going to perform your ceremony? What did you think?
  10. This information is so great--has anyone heard anything about Father Benito Aguilar or what he's like? We're considering a Catholic ceremony, but I've heard mixed reviews about the clergy. Does anyone know what he's like or when you meet with him prior to the ceremony? Also, do all Catholic ceremonies there have to be a full Mass with communion or can you leave out communion? Anyone? Thoughts?
  11. Wow! What a great review! We were considering an April wedding at MP, and this info is so helpful! Thank you!

    Moon Palace Catholic Wedding

    Hi everyone! My name is KC and my fiance and I just got engaged. We're looking at a wedding at Moon Palace in Cancun next May or June. We'd like to do a Catholic ceremony and want to know if anyone has recently had a Catholic wedding ceremony there. Thanks!
