Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. It's official... I'm also experiencing what many of you have shared.. number of people going to the wedding dropping. sad.gif Yesterday one of my very good friends shared that he is not sure whether or not he will be able to go now due to $$$. While I KNOW I can't "expect" people to come, it's still a sad thought. I am trying to contact people and share that air costs have recently dropped dramatically!! Unfortunately our airfare was booked when it was high....but since it's $200 cheaper per person right now I'm hoping it may help some who were "on the fence" to join us.

 

In addition to that, I have sent 3 e-mails to my On-Site WC and have heard nothing back! Grrrr. Marlyn told me to inform her if I didn't hear back soon. I don't want to be a pain, but I have some questions that I would like answered! I guess I'll e-mail back and share. I was thinking of seeing if I could be switched to Nancy as I've read numerous fabulous things about her on here.

 

On a positive note, my dress shipped last Saturday and we have the date set for our AHR here in PA. It's all about positive thinking, righthuh.gif

I was SO impressed with the bar at our cocktail function, we got the free cocktail hour which we used as our dinner/reception b/c Our wedding was later in the day - there was tons of food by the way, and they set up our own private bar with every kind of liquor you can imagine, honestly I can't remember if it was top shelf, but we had waiters/waitresses going around asking guests if they wanted another drink, as well as 2 bartenders at the little bar the whole time! And it was private, only for my guests!! I was so impressed by that!!!

Also, FYI we had no trouble at all at the Cancun airport, there were people there and some asked us if we needed rides,etc, but we just smiled and said "no thanks, we know exactly where we are going" which we did!! Just bring all your transfer docs with you and make sure you KNOW the name of your transfer company so you know which van/car to look for when you get outside the airport!

Hi

So true . . every function was amazing and top of the line!

Our bars, food & service at our Welcome Dinner, Cocktail Reception & Private Dinner were huge - loads of selection . . very impressive!

Our wedding was truly magical =)

Thanks,

HoLa Myen!

Yes, we included Tammara & Grant in our guest count for all items that our guests received - they were included in the dinner and dancing, favour, after reception guest thank you treat in rooms etc.

Treating them as a guest is the best things . . .they know when to be 'on things' & when to enjoy the party!

They are amazing =)

Wishing you all the best
Laura

OMG...I totally did already find someone on etsy to make me a cake topper. I searched and couldn't find anything satisfactory either. I sent her our engagement pictures and pictures of our babies this morning!

I'll definitely send you a picture/post one on here when I get it!!! I'm pretty excited about it...I might try to sleep with it next to me because I miss my pups so much!!!

For everyone else...yes...I am a little obsessive about Boston Terriers...*sigh*

Hi! We have the same date booked! 8/1/09 at 3pm at the chapel. We're heaaring the same things...so far two couples have confirmed that they can't go...and only a very few poeple have booked...keep ur hope alive though, people tend to book late and either way, being married to the love of your life is the best part of this whole thing!

While I've had people that I was sure coming suddenly not be able to I've also had people that I was sure weren't coming book their rooms. You never really know until you leave I guess. :)

 

I'm sure it will all work out and you will have a fabulous time, after all you know that you and your FI will be there. :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
