Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

MRS. D TO BE- I actually emailed them not too long ago and one of their reps emailed me back saying packages will be available the end of this month, so I guess 2010 brides to be can start planning soon!

Drtracy - I would call and see if you can get a new WC...or just find another's email address on this thread and email that WC...sometimes they'll just pick you up as theirs. I was having issues with my WC a while back and called to get a new one.

We did consider getting married at Aventura Spa (actually it was my first choice) but decided on Moon Palace because it wasn't adult only and my hubby-to-be didn't want to invite people who had families and then basically prohibit them from bringing their families.

I was more than a year out when I wanted to start planning and ran into the same issue that they didn't have any 2009 rates and therefore couldn't start with any of the 2009 contracts. Then once I finally hit that year mark and signed the wedding contract, I found out that flights aren't available until 280 days out (varies by airline) so I ended up waiting a couple more months. So, be aware when you want to start booking and you have to hang out for a couple more months until the flights become available:)

I feel like I've been living the life of "hurry up and wait" for the last year!

Last post of the day (sorry I was about 7 pages behind on the forum). I know that there has been some discussion about using a TA versus using Travelocity. Some of our guests used our recommended TA and some have used Travelocity and I realize now that it really is all about timing.

 

For example, my FH just got a quote from our TA last week and it came in at like $1400 and then he did a search on Travelocity for the same date range and flights and it came in at about $1100. Some of my other guests found out about this and they are irate that they paid $300-400 more for their packages than what they are going for now. I've had to explain that the airline and resort industries are CRAZY and that the prices are always fluctuating. On the flip side, this huge price decrease on Travelocity has allowed several guests to come who most likely would not have come if the prices would have stayed at where they are at.

 

I just checked Travelocity again for the same package that my guests booked last week for $997/person and now its going for $1544/person. This is a battle no one is going to win...

 

Last item that I wanted to comment on was handling accommodations information. We did an insert with our invites, so like Nibsmom we did the cute one, the accommodations card, and then the RSVP. I really struggled with the wording on the accommodations card so I thought I would share in case anyone was having the same issue. So here goes...

 

We have decided to take our wedding to Cancun, Mexico. We would love for you to join us for some fun in the sun but understand you may not be able to be there. We hope that you will send your love as we begin our lives together.

Camie-so you can actually just get a new WC? My wedding at Moon Palace is 5/23 and I haven't heard a word, just emails and dates that keep changing. At first it was you'll heard from your WC 90 days beforehand--which is now, then you'll hear from your WC 30 days beforehand..very frustrating

Lawie - I did. I was actually assigned an onsite WC waaaayyyy out. Months ago. And she NEVER responded to me. I sent her several emails, and then finally started issuing ultimatums about calling if I didn't hear from her within a certain period of time. I never heard from her, so I finally just called...and found out she was on vacation for the next two months. I was peeeeevved!

 

They had someone else email me with answers to my questions, so I've just kept emailing her instead of my original assigned WC - I still haven't heard anything from her anyways. I just wanted a freakin price list.

 

It is frustrating about the 90/30 days thing. When I first started all this, it was 90 days, but now everything says 30. I just pestered my Miami contact for price lists enough that she referred me on to the onsite WC. It's hard to budget when you don't have that stuff.

    • 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.
