My TA also got me better rates but we signed our contracts late 2008. Our room rates are $380 for two people. You can find my TAs information on our website in my siggy. She is local for us but she really has helped us a lot because she also helps out a lot with destination wedding suggestions and acts as the middle person on many issues that I was glad she could help with.

Another note (like Tammy stated a page ago) - If I am not mistaken, I got these rates directly from Moon Palace and my TA that I had started working with in the interim was able to honor them.

This is my favorite beach wedding review from Moon Palace. It still makes me cry when I look at her slide show.

OMG! Tina I can't believe you are leaving sooo soon! Saturday will be T minus 1 month for me!! I'm freaking out a little bit!


I was talking with my WC about our reception - she thinks we should do it indoors because of the temperature, but we're also reserving an outdoor space. I was hoping we could do it outdoors because then we wouldn't need to bring/buy decorations...sigh. What are you going to do if you have to move indoors??

Hi Ladies,


Iâ€ve been MIA – closed on my house last week in Minneapolis finally. What a relief to only have one mortgage now.


FutureMsMoulton - The bar with the swings is so cool but dangerous. Can't have too many cocktails while sitting on the swings:)


Jodimichelle - I think the important thing is that all your guests are on the same side. We all stayed on the Nizuc side and even then it was a haul from our room to some of our guests' rooms.


Tina- Regarding laundry... they do have services but I believe they send it off site. One other thing to note that I learned while I was there was that all the water on the resort is filtered and drink-able (including tap water).


Fabi – A catamaran is type of boat that has two hulls and usually has a flat area (no seats) and has sails. Iâ€ve been on two in my travels and rum punch always tastes better on catamarans than on land. Not sure why.


Nibsmom – Go with an outdoor reception if that is what you really want. There is a generous breeze off the sea that helps with the heat… plus it cools off a little after the sun sets. I really loved our outdoor reception as it just added that extra destination wedding feel… something unique that guests will remember.

Hi everyone! My wedding is coming up August 1st and just wanted to share that MP has assigned my wedding coordinator (she contacted me at the end of July) her name is Lily Sanchez and shes been awesome!

Her turnoaround time on the lasty couple of emails has been less than 24hrs!

it makes me feel confident that each bride isn't just another number!


Only bad news is that it seems that all the terraces are booked for recptiions that night. She only offered me the terrace/space by the infinity pool. It has it's own bar/palapa but i would've preferred it closer to the ocean. So for now we're going ahead with the "Mars" ballroom, she says its on the Sunrise side and has just enough space for 3 round tables and a dance floor. We're only 25 people total...

So no ocean breezes during my 1st dance but i guess i'll have AC !

Oh and i was confirmed for a 6pm reservation at Arrecife (sp?) for my rehearsal dinner. That's the restaurant that everybody seems to like the best for group dining...

WOW crunch time!

The resorts it quite big but not so big that it really matters what side you stay on you'll get to see and play on both. We are looking forward to going to the bar with the swings on the Sunrise side this time!

Hope your planning is going well!!
Thanks.. My TA is asking me where I would want my guests and since I havent been there I have NOO idea~!

ill flip a coin!

My guests are being offered the same tours at a chargeable rate which seems really unfair to me. Bait and switch is the name of the game and it is causing a great deal of dissatisfaction since the room rate at Moon Palace is the highest in the whole Cancun area.
Hi.. Wait what r they changing w/o letting us know?? Tours r not included...WHAT.. that can't be. They should notify all of us that booked their wedding there. I mean mine is next year..but I think it is rid. if they changed it and didn't notify me.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
