Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

TinaM2B, it looks like you'll have over the 35 guest capacity for group dinners at a restaurant. We are most likely going to be in a similar position. Do you think it'll be a problem to still have the welcome dinner as planned?

Thanks for the tip Nibsmom! I haven't decided if it just makes sense to rent linen there, like you said, or bring some along because then I know what it looks like. Then again, I have a tendency to overpack too so it would certainly be an adventure to get everything down there. Hmmmm, I'll have to think about that.

 

Does anyone know the size of the tables? What size tablecloth would I need? 60", 90"?

Camie, I am sorry to hear about your stress. I hope it all works out for you. I heard a lot of stuff this morning and our local authories are prepping for an outbreak but stating it isn't as bad in the U.S. They also stated it is probably the economic situation that is causing it to be worse in Mexico City, which is far away from Cancun.

 

We all have to remind our guests that there have been no reports anywhere close to the Cancun area, sort of like the violence. Hopefully, that doesn't change.

 

Also, for all the brides that are still a couple months out, the influenza season is usually over by summer, no matter what strain it is.

 

Let's all try and help us all stay positive and hopefully, stress free!

I've narrowed the source of the swine flu freak out to my mother. Turns out she contacted my sister, brother-in-law, and brother and basically told them that we are all going to die or they are all going to get quarentined at the airport if they look sick. She's so over dramatic and if I didn't have a legit concern that there were going to be travel restrictions, I'd be laughing.

 

I can't remember who posted the comment about guests not coming unless you switch locations... I think that's a little over the top and I'm sorry you have to deal with comments like those.

 

One of my guests sent me a link to a Google map where it shows the areas of the breakouts - none have been reported anywhere near Cancun. In fact, there are more cases near the Dallas area than remotely near Cancun.

 

H1N1 Swine Flu - Google Maps

 

I'm off to pick up my dress from alterations now. Oh and I got my ring "blinging" (as my jeweler puts it) and it looks awesome. I highly recommend a little touch up before you take off. Hey, if you are going to get the swine flu, you might as well have a shiny ring to go along with it! LOL.

Your review was great! I have a question about the photography package. Did you have a contract early on or sign anything? I got the price list when I signed my wedding contract and mine does say $780 for package E. What did they say when they told you it had increased to $950? Have you received your package yet? Are you happy with the photos they chose and the album?

We did sign a contract early on and are purchasing the Deluxe Package. It came with a price sheet and check sheet to turn in to the WC to purchase additional items.

So, say after our ceremony we have dinner in one of the restaurants and then decide to have some dancing/reception time. I know we have to pay for the sound system, but would we have to pay to use the space? How much would it cost to have a bar set up? Would we have to pay for like a cocktail reception even if we didn't want food?

Does anyone know?
Nibsmom, I was just looking through my wedding contract price list and it lists that a cocktail party costs for the receiption is $400.00 for 10-20, $600 for 21-30 and $800 for 31-40.

I just found out we have a WC at MP. It will change though because our primary WC is currently working with May brides. Maybe i can get some of these questions answered.

We were assigned Marabela for now and then it will change to Kalena. I hope it is smoother early on than some of the experiences some of you have had. Has anyone had recent experience with either of these WCs.

I would love to see some shots of that area if you would share. We have requested the same gazebo. Who is your WC?

I don't think I have read anything about this on the forum so I am also waiting to hear. We currently have 33 people staying at MP and 8 coming in from outside. I just started working on the approval for over 20% coming in.

This was a post that amduran made regarding the restaurant accomodations. I would imagine they would be okay with pulling up a few more chairs if need be, right??

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
