Hey Cindy!

I know they will provide a cake cutting knife, but it's not fancy. I believe Betsy posted about the knife her in review of her wedding. I'm not sure about the toasting flutes though!

I switched my wedding to the Dreams Punta Cana resort. All my guests said that they would have not gone if we are going to Mexico so I had no choice. Good luck to all you Moon Palace brides that are still getting married here!

Hi Girls! We leave tomorrow morning for MP. Getting very excited. I'll try to post something quickly when we return so everyone can see some updated pics and hopefully ease anyone's concerns.

Hi Ladies,

 

We had our wedding yesterday and everything went perfectly. I'll write the review as soon as I get back. I've taken lots and lots of pictures of everything and will be sure to share those as well. The resort is currently running at about 35% occupancy which means there are no issues finding chairs by the pool and getting quick service. The downfall of the low occupancy is that MP has decided to cut costs by closing the disco (they actually said it is closed for maint but we believe it just isn't economically feasible to keep it open when there are so few people). They have also closed one of the pool bar restauant but the other restaurant is not far and any of the wait staff will take your order and deliver your food. We've also heard that their occupancy is going to be even less next week - it's crazy the effect the media has had (swine flu blowout).

 

Moon Palace Grand is amazing. Switch your reservations to that side if you can.

Hi Tina,

We had David yesterday and we had him from about 4:50 - 8:30pm. I think that we were suppose to only have him through 8pm but our cake arrived late at the dinner so he had to stay to get a picture of the cake. We did all the family photos and some bride/groom photos before the ceremony and then we did more bride and groom photos after the ceremony while our guests were at the cocktail hour. We selected photo package E which was $950 + $65 shipping as they need 72 hours to prepare the photos, etc and we will have left before then.

David's famous quotes:
"Sexy body, sexy body"
"Love the sand!"
"Wait for me. OK good"

He was really great to work with telling you how to pose (sexy body, sexy body) and he kept me laughing the entire time. I felt really weird in some of the poses but I am sure they will turn out fantastic.
