Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Beautiful wedding set-up!

 

They have like 4 or 5 different menus for the cocktail hour/appetizers. And it is totally like a meal with tons of food! I didn't find out the details of the menus until I got to the Moon Palace and talked to my WC, and I can't remember all the different ones! But I do remember that it was good food LOL!

Hello ladies,

 

I just wanted to say thanks!! :)

We were really pleased with our pictures and flowers. The Moon Palace photographer did a great job, and the Moon Palace has beautiful flowers to choose from.

 

Jodymichelle: we didn't have quite as much time as you to plan. But that just means you have lots of time to pick out wedding dress and shoes, bridesmaids dresses, work on invitations, save the date cards etc. And this forum is great, you should get lots of good ideas from here. I didn't find this forum until less than a month before we left.

 

I thought I attached the menus in a previous post But here it is again.

 

Good luck! :)

 

Sarah

Good Luck with that! Hopefully you will have some last minute joiners! Our deadline is on April 17th. Everyone has to be paid in full and we will know what we are looking out then. I am so ready to start planning.

I originally thought we needed over 40 OOT bags and in prepping, I did 50. We are down to 30 now (yes, I already bought everything! DOH!!) so I decided that we are going to use the extra stuff for door prizes at showers. It will give away some of the surprises for the guest that are going but the people who are holding our showers really appreciate the idea.

We have to all stay positive in these trying times and make the best of what we do with it.

Hey Tina,

 

I did the same thing. I bought some stuff for my OOT bags planning on 50...and we only have 26 now. Oh well. I'm sure some of it I can sell on the forum...I'll have 20 extra of those little spanish books from Target!

 

Sarah and Richard, is that the menu for the cocktail receptionshuh.gif

So...I was just one the palace resorts wedding website, and they've really changed the packages!!! I got to thinking though, does this mean the 2009 packages change? I got the free package for my wedding in July, but does it change to the free package that's up there now? It looked like there were a few changes...does anyone know?

If you've already signed your contract and paid your deposit (don't you have to do this for free ones as well, give a credit card or something) it should remain the same.

Looking at it I'm glad I booked when I did, I think I get a lot more stuff with my superior package for less money then the first few. Phew!

Hi Julia! I too am new to this site and I also am thinking of booking Moon Palace Punta Cana for our wedding location. I just received some info from the WC there and it looks like they have changed their wedding packages from what was listed on the website a month ago (both good and bad). I would love to chat with you so we can share any information so hit me up. Look forward to talking to you...good luck!

I am experiencing the same thing right now! Although I haven't booked yet, I have been emailing with the WC at Moon Palace PC since before the resort even opened. This whole time I was under the impression I was going pay for the superior wedding package and receive spa treatments, hair, mani and pedi. Well, that is no longer included in their packages so those things will now have to be purchased separately. Not sure if I am going to go with MP, also thinking Paradisus Palma Real...anyone have recommendations or info?

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
