Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hmm...well, I for one, want to wear my dress as long as I can...cause it makes me feel pretty! LOL! I guess it depends on how hot I get. If I get really hot, I'll probably take it off before going dancing!

Hi All,

 

I leave on Fri for my wedding on Mon at MP. Lots of little details still to sort out--could barely sleep last night! But my question is about the airport transfer. I'm told it's $23 per person RT, but for a family of 5 that adds up and a cab would be cheaper. A friend of mine said that coming out of the airport is a bit chaotic and it's eaiser/safer to have the hotel transfer set up. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Congratulations and good luck! I'm sure the wedding will go perfectly. You should be fine taking a taxi. There should be a lot of them outside along with the hotel vans. And just as an FYI - There will also be a lot of people ready and waiting to help you with your luggage but just know that they are expecting a tip of course. They can be very pushy and just about take the luggage out of your hand to put on their cart. Other than that you'll have a great time so don't worry about anything :)

Hmm...my TA worked the airport transfer into the nightly rate...so I have no idea how which would be better! I bet a taxi would be fine though, for those comfortable doing that. I know some people who don't travel a lot may want the knowledge that someone will be there waiting for them though to make them feel more secure.

 

I guess it's just up to your guests! Good luck!!

Anndddd...in a second post...

 

Okay, I'm not really sure what to do about this.

 

Four weeks ago, I was assigned an on site WC. I emailed her several times, and never got a response. Finally last Tuesday, I called the Moon Palace, only to find out she's been on vacation and won't be back for at least another two or three weeks. I left my contact information and questions with the woman on the phone, and she said someone would contact me shortly.

 

No one has called or emailed me. It's now been another week. I'm getting really mad, and I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I should switch resorts if this is how it's going to be the whole time. If I can't get answers to my questions about really important things like my apostille documents, how am I going to get an answer to littler questions about receptions and all that??

 

I'm not really sure what to do...should I call again and complain? I don't want to be a bridezilla. I just really want SOMEONE....ANYONE...to answer my questions!!!!

Have you tried contacting your Sales Coordinator in Miami?
Or sending a message to your WC immediate supervisor? In her absence, you should be able to contact the supervisor, express your frustrations, and get some answers. No need to go all out and change venues, especially if any of your guests have already begun booking.
Also, have you tried sending an email to another coordinator at the resort? I did that (not knowing who my assigned one was) and the gal I contacted offered to adopt me into her case load.

Hi all,

 

For those of you still waiting to hear about what the cost of lighting is for outside receptions, the cost is $150.00 in addition to the DJ/music equipment. HOWEVER, the outside area DOES have lighting, the additional lighting is if you want light directed towards the dance floor etc...

Marie, good suggestions!

 

I don't know who Kalena's direct supervisor is...so maybe I will try to email the woman I was talking with in Miami again and see if she can hook me up with someone else. Thanks!!!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • 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.
