  1. Hello all, I am a little less than a month away. My coordinator is Brenda. She has been great. I have been emailing and calling her and she is always informative and prompt. I ending up only having 25 people coming so I was unable to qualify for the free reception. So I am using the complimentary package and bringing my own decorations. I am having the reception at the Brazilan restaurant. This restaurant has a balcony that can be used and is semi private. It is the only restaurant that you can use with your free reservation that is kinda private. Just a thought:) I am also having a large reception back home and totally agree that I don't want to go crazy down there ether. I think the beach and the whole feel is enough
  2. I had a self united wedding . That means that you file for that then they send you then paperwork and get two people to sign it send it back and you are married. I do not know if they do that in every state. It is called a self uniting marriage license. That way we did not have a ceremony but are still legally married. This is perfect because we are having a destination wedding. Our wedding date to us will be the date of the symbolic wedding in Mexico.
  3. Hello everyone , Just wanted to update you on my plans so far. We were contacted 90 days before, her name is Brenda and she is great !we have booked our venue for the wedding ceremony and for the reception . We were unable to get the 75 nights so we have to settle for a reception. We chose the Brazilian restaurant because it is most private. I am going to use A few decorations that I will bring from home. I am also going to have an at home reception. My colors are champagne . The men will wear linen shirts and khaki from macys. I have less than 2 months and I am excited.
  4. I have a few questions .. 1). Is the 1500 credit per room or per person? Some people who are staying together are not a couple and would not be spending the credits as a couple. 2). IF I have to use a restaurant, are there any that have private patios that you dont have to pay extra for or private rooms? Basically which one would be best to have a reception at ? I want nice and as private as can be. 3) I will probably be able to get the 10 - 19 rooms for 3 nights or 30 room nights = 2 room nights + 1 hour cocktail reception. We paid seperately so wondering if we each get 2 room nights off of our stay? 4). What are the going rates for outside photographers? ladies which is my best bet? I would be so grateful if they would just allow me to buy a day passs. 5). If I am getting married at 2:00. What time should I do the cocktail hour? Then dinner? i hate that it is so damn early!!
  5. So my time is winding down and I am getting excited!! I get married July 20 th so I should be contacted soon by a wedding coordinator. I was planning on having a private reception but I dont think I will have enough nights/rooms. i thought they counted the rooms and nights by person (BOY WAS I WRONG!) That makes a hige difference. Anyways.... I have a few questions .. 1). Is the 1500 credit per room or per person? 2). IF I have to use a restaurant, are there any that have private patios that you dont have to pay extra for or private rooms? Basically which one would be best to have a reception at ? I want nice and as private as can be. 3) I will probably be able to get the 10 - 19 rooms for 3 nights or 30 room nights = 2 room nights + 1 hour cocktail reception.

  6. All 2013 brides there is a new forum ! Moon palace newbie 2013 ! Check it out and show it some love ! Lol
  7. Originally I thought I was going to make the unlimited events but I am not sure now . So can anyone recommend a restaurant for the reception that is really good and can be a little more private if needed . Thanks
  8. Hello, I am not sure if many of you may know but when you go to count the nights you do not count each individual person . That's what I thought. You count the room nights or couple. so if you have a couple staying for 5 nights you can comped 5 nights not 10 nights .. Also even though people come to your wedding and that's the only reason moon palace is getting their business they have to book through the resort under your group rates. I have a few people who used there own travel agent and I do not get comped for those s nights !
  9. As I have read through the Moon Palace Bride 2012 forum it seems that many people have used many outside vendors. What they have done to get around it is booking them a room for one night. The vendor then becomes one of your guests. Also the Flower guy is able to deliver the flowers at the lobby and he has seem to get away with it . I have no clue or I may be wrong but my suggestion would be is to not tell them anything. Get your photographer a room for the night and say they are a guest!! Flowers get them delivered the day of and have a bridesmaid meet him at the entrance/lobby. For the wedding decorations and the speaker system I would just go with MP chosen vendors. I agree their vendors are way overpriced !!! P.S I know that you are also have to use a few day passes. This may also be an option!! Not sure
  10. How does the resort tax work? Do you pay cash for the tax at time of use for the credits? Or do they add the tax up on your bill at the end of the trip for the total of credit you use?
  11. Thank you all for your responses. I am now working on a information brochure to send out to everyone. The only thing that I am unsure of is the actual directions on how to have my quests reserve rooms right through the site using my wedding number. I am waiting to hear from my TA.
  12. Hello , So far I have sent out save the dates. Which I sent out 14 months ahead of the day. I wanted to give people a lot of time to save. However a lot of the information other than the date has been changed (locations, date prices will be available) . I guess thats what I get for sending them out so early. I bought my dress from davids bridal this month, so one year in advance. I am in the works of booking my photographer and videographer. I am looking into what it will cost to use there ipod and speaker set. However, I may just buy a bose ipod dock and use an iphone or Ipod to save money. I am also having an at home recepetion so I think I am going to buy my own linens, centerpieces, and decorations!! My next step is to get formal invitations when I get the airfare prices.. I am patiently waiting
  13. This is such a great form/thread.. So informative and a special thanks to all who took the time to post pictures for us couples who cannot make a site vist!!
