  1. We're getting married in August and our group rate is $148pp. We have gone through Vacations for Less. It was about $6 pp cheaper then going through the resort directly. We are actually getting married in NY first (Our home state.) because I chose not to have our marriage license in spanish. If you are getting married by a priest in the chapel you will also have to get married first. The religious ceremonies are not civil and are not legal in Mexico.
  2. Teresa have you looked at the website? The list for the complimentary package is on there.
  3. Thanks! I'm going to try my best! I guess I could always play dumb.
  4. Congrats!! I am sure your day was amazing... You've been such a help on here! Thank you again. I can't wait to see your pictures and hear all about it!
  5. I'm thinking it's very do-able. We are getting married at the Moon Palace. Out room will cost about $2,000 which is the largest amount. I have been looking for cheaper plane tickets...they are going to cost us around $800. I refuse to pay more...hoping to get less. (we're from NY) We are doing the symbolic, complementary ceremony. We are going to do the ipod dock at the reception that's about $275. That leaves us with $2,000 for photos decor, etc. I"m praying it'll all work out!!!
  6. There's no 300 fee to do a symbolic ceremony. HI Victoria, if you want a symbolic ceremony let me know so I can cancel the judge and request a minister. We do not charge the 300 civil fee because symbolic is not a legal wedding. Yes you still have to arrive 3 business days, no blood work require J Civil is a legally binding ceremony and symbolic is not legally binding and not documents require.

  7. So I am dealing with TONS of family drama. Travis and I got engaged in October 2010. We had origionally planned our wedding for 5/26/12. My mother suggested we move it to a closer date and get married in the fall. We then set a date for 9/10/11. We were very excited and began to plan, it was 11 month away! 6 Months before, my father, who said he was paying for everything, ripped the carpet out from underneath us and told us he just didn't have the money and couldn't afford the wedding. He was also furious that my mother (my parents went through a brutal divorce ( wasn't paying for anything.) This made him change his mind and suddenly, there were no wedding plans. I was extremely upset. I, of course, went to my mother for guidance. She suggested we do the destination wedding. She suggested that we rented a Villa in the caribbean and get married in a chapel. More and more weeks were passing and I still had not made a decision. I tried speaking to my mother about what to do. I told her that I felt like I had no one to help me make decisions and I felt on my own. Right away she concluded that this was because of money. She got extremely mad and stopped speaking to me. This was in March and she has yet to speak to me. In the meantime we had to make some plans. We decided to go forward to our wedding at the Moon Palace in Cancun Mexico. We booked the resort and sent out the invites. Because of the short planning, basically no one is coming. It's very upsetting to know that even with getting an invite my mother can't get over her own pride to congratulate her daughter. I also go a nasty e-mail from my sister, who was married at 16 and divorced by 25. She thinks we're making a mistake. Although we're a great couple she thinks that we are just going to get divorced. And that we are "rushing" into a marriage. I am not sure where this is coming from other than the fact that my mother must me talking behind my back. Travis and I have been friends for 10 years, we have dated for 4, we own a house together and we've been engaged for just about 9 months right now. How can your own family members be so jaded at such an important time in someone's life. It's all very hurtful....how are any of your handling family wedding drama?
  8. I keep starting up at the gym....then falling off schedule. I also keep stocking my fridge with nothing but healthy foods and....same thing I get off schedule. I am having a really hard time getting the willpower thing going! I am so frustrated with it!!
  9. Has anyone been having success with weight loss??? I have three months!!! I would like to drop 30 lbs. EEEEEEkkkkk....I have no will power!!!!!! Does anyone have any suggestions???
  10. Great, useful post! Thanks!! Has anyone had a beautiful destination wedding for only 5k?
  11. August 2011 Moon Palace Brides!!! What photographer are you using? How many guests do you have? Are you having a reception? Is anyone using the resort photographer? I feel like I have nothing ready yet !!! It's so close!! Is anyone as behind as me????
  12. So it is exactly the same except for the legality of it? Do you still have to pay the $300 fee?
  13. Does anyone recommend the symbolic ceremony over the civil? I was just reading a thread where she did the symbolic instead to avoid the blood work etc? (I'm deathly afraid of needles...lol) Is it the same package if you do the symbolic? What's the difference? I was thinking that we could just go to the justice of the peace before or after our destination wedding. Thanks ladies!!!
