The MP is huge but we never had any problem - we would run into everyone at the pool all the time. It was kind of nice too b/c we were able to have some alone time. We just met up with everyone for dinner.
Hello I just had a coiple questions re: catholic wedding. So the wedding is held at the gazebo not in a chapel? The priest at MP-does he speak English?

This is a great post! My concern and greatest priority is also to secure a Catholic church or chapel as I want to have the traditional Catholic/Filipino wedding ceremony. I am still early in the planning process, but I would any advice regarding chapels/churches in Mexico that would accommodate a Catholic mass in conjunction with Filipino traditions.

Yes, at Moon Palace Cancun, the Catholic Ceremony is on the beach in a gazebo that looks like a little Catholic gazebo, no it is not a chapel. And from what I understand, yes, they have ceremonies in either English or Spanish.

Hey girls! I contacted my priest about this and he said for the ceremony to be recognized in the catholic church, the wedding must be performed in front of an altar. This is why most of the beach and gazebo catholic ceremonies do not count as official. He said the best bet (and this avoid blood tests and in country wait times) would be to have it blessed in your own church with a couple of witnesses before you go and then do a symbolic ceremony at the beach. We thought about flying the priest down and having HIM do the symbolic ceremony and maybe include a homily or something so our parents would feel more comfortable wtih the situation. From what I understood though, it sounds like it pretty much HAS to be in a church/chapel to be recognized.

I AM THINKING OF HAVING THE WEDDING AT EITHER MOON PALACE OR AT DREAMS CANCUN. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME ? HAS ANYONE HAD A CATHOLIC CEREMONY AT DREAMS ? I KNOW MOON PALACE HAS A CATHOLIC CHAPEL (GAZEBO) ON THE RESORT (looking over the water) BUT MY TA SAID THAT MOON PALACE IS A REALLY BIG RESORT & THAT DREAMS IS SMALLER (more intimate) RESORT FOR THE WEDDING PARTY. NOT SURE...ANY SUGGESTIONS? INFO?
Mariola...I just got information from the WC at JW Marriott/CasaMagna Marriot. They have a beautiful private Gazebo overlooking the ocean. They do have permission to hold Catholic ceremonies, as long as you go through your church for permission and then get it approved through the Catholic church in Cancun. I tried attaching the PDF that has the details, but it keeps saying "failed upload". I'd be more then happy to email the info to you. PM if you'd like for me to send it to you. I haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet, but I'm REALLY exited to check them out. They have the total cost break down pertaining to the set up, church fee and everything else. Hope this is helpful!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
