  1. @sassldiva wow sorry it's been so long since i've logged on. hmm that's weird, it could also be because it's plated food, but we ended up going with buffet for ours at Moon Palace so we didn't incur any of those extra fees just to note as well, our group booked through my wedding planner who deals with a travel supplier to provide us with our rates to complete the group booking with moon palace, we didn't book directly with them but were still eligible for the group benefits.
  2. Hi @@sassldiva! I'm also planning my wedding for January 2017 and we booked at the Moon Palace. Because we met the group minimum, we're actually not paying per head for our wedding or any private events. We booked back in 2015 and I believe their group minimums have now changed since then. When we booked, it was, 75 room nights or more to get free unlimited private functions. As far as wedding costs go...most things like string lights, dj, fancy chairs, tables are at an extra cost. I know that Moon Palace is more expensive than most resorts in Cancun...but for the size of the resort, re
  3. @@Natasha28 I purchased the silk flowers from the wholesaler and it came up to about $120, which bought me enough flowers to make about 3 bouquets, and 5 floral table runners. Hope that helps I'll definitely need to make another trip back there though!
  4. @@tuppup yah their prices are outrageous! I have wedding planner that I'm bringing down from Vancouver so I'm leaving her to set-up most of those items for us; I'm not sure about the cost for the charge..but I imagine it to be worth it considering how much they're charging for their decor :S
  5. @@tuppup which resort is your wedding at? I'm at MP and we can get our decor from vendors like LatinAsia or Zuniga. They're pretty pricey though-- so tbh i'm bringing down most of my own decor (floral bouquets, and garlands).

  7. @@banana2016 there are a whole bunch down in Burnaby on Marine Way; but the one i'm going to is called "Florists Supply", this one isn't open to public, but there are a whole bunch in the area that are! I would definitely check it out when you can.
  8. Hi @@banana2016 I'm also doing the same-- I'm buying the silk/fake flowers from a wholesaler here in Vancouver and assembling the bouquets myself. I've youtubed it as well and it honestly doesn't look TOO difficult. I also want peonies which are super expensive down in Mexico so we've opted for the silk flowers instead Hope that helps!
  9. @ -- Congrats again on the wedding! I read your review and it immediately got me so excited about my wedding. So happy everything went smoothly for you guys. So I think I might have forgotten to mention that being on the Caribbean Terrace, the latest the reception can go until is 10pm...so even with extending the reception, we would just be moving up our cocktail hour, but instead now we're just ending at 9:30 and i feel like on the day of, we may end up just taking the 30 mins up until 10pm to move everyone out of that area... into the club I'll post some photos later on my hair and
  10. Hi Ladies, Sorry I've been so MIA! I guess we're kind of at the point in our planning where we're really just waiting for vendors and others to get back to us before we get to make final decisions on things. WEDDING DAY DETAILS: We've finalized our wedding date/times and location: January 19, 2017 4pm Ceremony at Caribbean Beach (Moon Grand Beach) 6pm Cocktail hour Caribbean Terrace 7pm Reception dinner Caribbean Terrace (which we've decided we would extend for an additional hour, bringing the reception until 10pm-- this costs an additional $8.50/pp) MP was nice enough to
  11. HI @@OttawaBride2017, Congrats on your engagement and welcome to the forum! I'm also a January 2017 bride, and we're booked at Moon Palace in Cancun. MP definitely ticks of all of your 'must-have' boxes, and we're actually hosting our reception at the Caribbean Terrace which is some-what of a rooftop type/deck terrace (it lives above the Caribbean Restaurant and is outdoors). I wouldn't say that MP is really 'contemporary looking', I feel like it lends a little more to the 'Mayan' feel, but it's sister resorts Sun Palace, Beach Palace, and Le Blanc (adults-only) definitely are!

  12. Hey Ladies!! Thanks everyone for all the support! You guys have all made me feel so much better-- being the hands on, control freak that I am...i honestly couldn't stop worrying but it's OVER and the turn out was greater than expected, we've got a total of 17 rooms booked and 32 deposits, which is WAY more than we had hoped for. The crazy part is, a good 10-15 guests have actually told us that they're planning on booking later (due to pregnancies, vacation days, etc.) so we're probably looking at about 45 people in total! We met our 10 room minimum, qualified for the unlimited private ev
  13. @@ashhtayy Yah certain things can wait until the final payment, like the 12th room free promotion, but the 10 room minimum needs to be booked by the deadline. But I guess it's just the stress of all of it that I'm getting overwhelmed and just want everything confirmed sooner rather than later. Thanks for the kind words!
  14. Hi Ladies, Just a quick little update before I head to bed tonight... I'm not going to lie...this past weekend has been really stressful, i've cried multiple times over the RSVP deadline which is tomorrow. The fact that everyone wants to wait until the VERY last minute is driving me absolutely insane! We've had a lot of people we thought would book as double books as singles (UGHHH, WHY?! It's $1000 more!). This isn't helping because we're trying to guarantee our group booking minimum which is 10 double occupancy rooms. To add to that, it also doesn't count towards our 12th room free p
