Yikes! They don't include chair covers? That's a lot of $ IMO but I've never priced them so maybe it's normal.

 

At that rate, I would have a beach blanket wedding...get some nice blankets and umbrellas and have the guests chill out there, the ceremony is super short anyways! LOL

 

I think we have other moon palace brides, I hope they can help :)

Hi there... I am a MP bride, getting married in April. We are doing an outside reception and not doing chair covers as the white slatted chairs that they use look nice enough. We may do some table runners to add a little more color to the tables (she said we could bring our own) and I am still waiting for pricing on the flowers. Depending on how many tables you have, it can get expensive... I think that we were quoted 3 tabletop for $180 or something like that.

 

How many guests are you having? Are you doing something outside or in a ballroom?

 

I am also going to do very colorful menus for each place setting to dress up the table a bit... add some extra color without a major expense. Good luck!

Hi there! We are getting married in April as well - My advice would be to keep it simple! It is going to be SO beautiful anyways - Honestly - we are not doing any chair linens - Our guests probably won't even pay attention to the chair linens anyways - I am making a lot of our favors and things too for added color - like program fans for the ceremony, flowers, corsages and everything like that - usually you can make things for 1/2 the cost and there are TONS of great DIY ideas on here! Good Luck!

Thank you for your feedback... I am having 80-100 people and the recepion is inside. To cut back on costs I would like to carry 2 boxes as my checked luggage of feathers and vases for my centerpieces. Does anyone know how that would work with customs? I am having a hard time geting info from the mexican consulate?

Both my sister and BFF got married at Moon Palace and I went to both. The officiant does his thing in English it is about 30 minutes in length. The pics actually turned out nicely. I love my sister's pics. She was worried about the pics too and I showed her my BFF's album.

 

They were going to a golf thing for the guys, but the greens fees there are so rediculous, like $180.

 

I have to honestly say the cake was gross. It was pretty, but nobody liked the cake. The food was ok, nothing to brag about but I did enjoy it. I think that comes with any AI resort.

 

The weddings were both beautiful. Neither of them used chair covers.

 

Are you doing the horse drawn carriage? That was the prettiest part that got me all choked up.

 

The wedding coordinator was really good the day of the wedding and she even chooed away bistanders that were looking to watch. Your wedding will be beautiful. I would have chosen the same place if my sister did not have her's there already.

 

Lucky that they let you choose the Sunrise side. both times I was on Nizuc. They promised my sister we would be on Sunrise, but they changed that on her. Both sides are really nice though. Sunrise is just bigger.

 

My sister's hair and make-up turned out very nice as well. PM if you want to know anything else :)

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
