Your wedding is before mine, so I hope that you can give me your opinion once you are back about how sturdy it was... etc...

I have not seen pictures of a beach wedding at the moon palace, so if you come across any, please forward them to me. I would also love pics of your beach wedding... HOW EXCITING!
I will definitely let you know how it goes. I will also continue to look for pictures of a beach wedding. I did find one picture on one of these forums. I don't know who's wedding it was or if the bride was in heels or not because you could not see them. I will try to attach it.

Hi Laura,

Congrats on getting everything booked!! I still haven't been assigned a wedding coordinator (I keep bugging Marlyn), but I did call the resort directly yesterday and ask for someone to be assigned, and arranged with the person I was talking to to book the Tucan gazebo. I think I'm supposed to hear from a WC today at some point, which will help!

What is the lounge set-up? Do you have any pictures of it? Have you heard how much it costs? I'm still trying to decide where we should have our reception afterwards.

For anyone who is booking the horse and carriage for your way to the wedding, do you know if the bridesmaids just meet you at the end of the aisle then? I had always thought that I'd be going to the gazebo with my girls, but obviously we can't all fit in that carriage! Would they have a golf cart for transportation or anything, or would they just walk? I'd like there to be something kind of special for them as well.

Laura, just out of curiousity, which bouquet and cake did you pick? I wonder if we'll see each other the day of our weddings! I'll be keeping an eye out for other brides for sure!

That is the only picture I have seen of the beach wedding and in fact is the sample used by Moon Palace for a beach wedding, that decoration costs $850.00...I don't know if it even is a real wedding or set up for purposes of a sample.......

I would like to call mexico and find out about whether the high heels would work on that runner he he

First, I have always wanted a beach wedding so when my WC sent me pics of the gazebos I told her that I would rather have our ceremony on the beach. She had no problem with that and told me, "the beach it will be". I've been reading some reviews and noticed that a few people had the same idea that I did and then when they arrived at their resort they changed to a gazebo location. Whyhuh.gif Can anyone tell me if the beach weddings aren't as private, appealing, too pricey, what is ithuh.gif

Second, I have this awful tattoo on my finger that I've been having removed for almost 1 year now. It's much lighter than it used to be but unfortunately it's still there =( Does anyone know if the onsite photographers are able to airbrush any pictures that my finger may be in? I've tried lot's of things to cover it up but nothing works like I would like it to.
I have read reviews from past brides that they rake the beach often but that there always seemed to an abundance of seaweed.

I'd always wanted a beach wedding too but then I attended one a couple years ago in the Bahamas and while the view and whole idea of it was great, the wind was a force to be reckoned with. Perhaps it was an overly windy day but I decided that day that I was a not a fan of the wind and vowed to go with a gazebo if one was available.

Hi Camie,

Thanks for the info ~ there are so many pages for the MP forum that it's hard to find things on here! I'm going to see if I can find any pics on Tripadvisor of the restaurants you mentioned.

 

I grew up in St. Paul, lived in Mpls during college and now we're in Bloomington (the same suburb that the Mall of America is in). That's interesting that you moved to TX! We might be moving there too, eventually. Nick's parents moved to Austin 2 years ago and we love visiting them.

 

You'll be happy to be down there today.....we had freezing rain all day yesterday and woke up to two inches of snow this morning!

Hey all! I got assigned my onsite WC today! I was so shocked! My wedding isn't until July! I booked my wedding last week and sent in the charge authorization form, and today I emailed Katherine Rivera (my Miami WC) to ask her to send me some lists of prices for reception stuff. She just emailed me back with my onsite WC, who will be Kalena.

 

I was soooo surprised! I was expecting it to be a huge hassle based on what others have gone through! Now I'm so excited to really get some planning done!! thewave.gif

Does anyone by chance have Mario's (head of photography) email address? Claudia, bless her heart, still hasn't responded to my inquiries and we're working on three weeks. Last I heard was that she would have Mario contact me to confirm photography information.... Please help! Has anyone heard anything from Claudia lately?

 

Also, is anyone going the route of rent a tux through the resort?

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
