Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Eureka, those spanish books that were talked about are called "Spanish for Dummies" and they have english-spanish phrases in them.

 

Here is what they look like (I had them in my OOT bags too) and everyone loved them! This is my sis and her husband.

Hi Leogurl,

 

I am working directly with the Moon Palace. They usually respond between 24 to 48 hours and you don't have a middleman. The pricing I got is in the range that you mentioned. The only thing they require is your room's deposit for 3 nights.

Hey Eureaka! Those are the same books I got! They were in the dollar section at Target! I know there is a link somewhere in this forum to a place where you can print off spanish phrases for free though - maybe in the OOT section? I would do a search!

Also, I see that the Moon Palace has changed their packages. Does anyone know if this applies to people that already signed a wedding contract or to people who are going to be signing a contract. My TA has not had me commit to any package we just signed the wedding contract and this makes me nervous.

Thanks
Hey Leanna-

Hey-

I was told by my TA that we do need to get an Apostille Document, so we went ahead and got the document. It was really easy; we sent an application along with birth certificate to the state where it was issued and they sent the Apostille Document back a few days later.

I used the TA banner up top of BDW, and one of the TA's from this website gave her my information, so I assumed she's good. After she made her first contact, she wasn't in touch with me again for over a week, which wasn't a big deal since I hadn't figured out what I was doing, and I just figured I'd have to find a different TA since she didn't respond to my e-mails. Well then she finally did contact me and apologized that she'd been out of the office for a week. So time goes by, she's been great with e-mail with correspondence, and we decide on MP. She tells me she'll confirm our wedding date with MP. And then I don't hear from her for two weeks. So I got frustrated and called her on a Monday. She thanked me for being patient, hadn't confirmed my wedding date yet, and said she'd been out for a week because of family issues. She did say she'd contact me within the next couple days. Never heard from her and another week went by. I e-mailed her again. Another week has gone by with nothing. Before when I e-mailed her, she'd respond within 24 hours, so I assumed this was a great way of communicating. I am frustrated because at this point, I don't know if our wedding date has been confirmed even though I told her over a month ago which day & time we want. I'm a pretty laid back person and do understand having family emergencies, etc., but I have never used a TA before and have no idea if this is normal. She has assured me though that we'll be able to get group rates between $350-$400 per room, so I do not want to have to search for another TA and possibly start all over again finding a resort that my guests can afford. Any suggestions? I do plan to call her again Tuesday evening if I don't get a response.

Leogurl...I am using a TA, All Inclusive Reservations, and this lady is totally awesome! My family has used her as well, If you'd like to contact someone else, elly@allinclusivereservations.com. However, I was never advised to work with the TA for the wedding stuff, two different companies. TA couldn't possibly be on top of the resorts wedding functions. I was assigned a wedding coordinator at the resort to work out those details, I would advise you contact the resort directly re: your wedding. smile03.gif

Hey Leogurl! Regarding your TA - I'm sorry you're so frustrated!

 

When I was getting ready to do all this stuff, I was really unsure if I wanted to go with a TA or not, so I went ahead and booked my wedding date and time through the MP on my own, before I got a TA. If you're concerned about not getting your date and time, I would go ahead and contact the MP to confirm that on your own. Then, you and your TA can work out the details of a group contract, since your wedding is over a year away and is probably less pressing at this point.

 

I would also talk with your TA about your expectations regarding communication. Maybe it's just an discrepancy in what you're both expecting out of the relationship that can be easily cleared up with a quick chat. If it turns out you have mismatched styles, you'll know you'll need to find a new TA that would suit you better.

 

That's what I think anyways! Good luck!!

It depends on YOUR individual church I believe. Our priest had to get permission from the bishop in our diocese for us to be married at the Catholic Chapel. Once that was finished, we still did all of our pre-cana stuff and then that had to be sent to the priest that was marrying us. It all worked out perfect for us.....the justice of the peace did his part first, (the legal part) and then our priest took over with the blessing of our marriage for the catholic part.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
