Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Thanks, MrsGin09! I did add a few pics of the after stuff but still waiting on some better pics. Got a feeling that there will be continuous changes and some replacements on it... just the way I am.

 

When do you leave? I am sure you are getting excited.

 

We are so glad we stayed so long at Moon Palace. We were there for 11 days with the wedding in the middle. We were able to get there and relax, check the places out, and just get out of our home frame of mind. After 4 days, our guests started arriving. Either Bennie or I met most of them in the lobby and had the bartender and waitress ready and waiting for thirsty new guest. I think everyone appreciated that attention. We also hung out in the lobby the day most left to say bye. In between, everyone had a blast and most said they would definitely be back to MP.

 

I really think the thing most people liked is it is so accommodating, so relaxed, yet they take care of your every need without being stuffy. The entire event was fun and relaxing.

 

Our wedding day was more than I could of ever expected.

We had several days to ourselves before and had several days with my boys after the wedding to do tours, etc. I think we wore ourselves out after because we tried to squeeze in a lot of things. The best part was we got our pics from them before we left which was great.

Weather - We thought the weather was amazing BUT we and all our guests were from Texas. We have had over 100 degree days for a couple months with no breeze in Texas. We thought it was great on the beach with the breeze. The day of our wedding, we had a couple rain showers and overcast all day (thus the gray water photos). It made it even nicer for the wedding day (no bright sunshine squints in the photos, they moved our dinner inside which is what we wanted but they wanted to charge us for another event so we were going to keep it oustside till the rain, and it is good luck for rain on a wedding day).

Pool - It was great. the shade was from the palapas but good enough. For those that wanted sun, we/they laid out in the water on the platforms in the pools. For the ones that wanted the shade, there were plenty of the palapas for them. We hung out in the same area every day and that is where everyone met up the entire time all the guests were there.

Ballroom - We loved it. I brought no decorations and what MP did was great! The decor was simple but very color filled. We thought we would be outside because we didn't want to pay for a separate event. They moved the dinner inside that morning due to rain but kept our one hour cocktail hour outside. This was what we really wanted but we didn't prepare for it and it turned out absolutely amazing. We had problems with the IPOD station we rented but the guy manning the system ended up acting like a DJ and took requests all night long.

Let me know if this didn't answer your questions. I know how many I had and appreciated getting.

Leanna,

We paid $6 a runner for each table, total $36.00. They put the centerpiece on them and used our leftover fans for part of the decoration. That is it.

We had the old Deluxe package for our wedding which didn't include gazebo decor...... we were pleasantly surprised they put orange ties on some of the chairs in the ceremony too. We did not pay extra for that either.

One other note that I need to add that I didn't cover in my earlier post. Because we and all our guests are used to HOT with no breeze, we would of had our ceremony outside once we checked it out. This was a concern before we arrived because we heard a lot about it being so hot in Cancun. We checked out the ceremony cite the first two days at 2:00 (because our wedding was at that time) and 5:00 (because our coctail hour started then and our dinner was supposed to be outside at 6:00). We personally thought it was great but that would depend where your originally from. I had originally asked about having the cocktail outside and the reception inside. That would of put us over budget due to the cost so we left everything outside. The rain really did give us everything we wanted and a laugh or two.

 

Whatever happens, make the best of it because the MP staff really wants it to be that way for you.

I know I am posting a lot but just wanted to get out a couple more things since I haven't had a chance to even start my review.

 

Looking back, we would give almost everything an A- to A+ grade. There were only two exceptions - music system and flowers.

 

Most of you have already read about the music system problems we had but I haven't mentioned the flowers. We didn't get the ipod docking station we paid for so the guy manning the music ended up being a DJ but was playing songs we would of never picked to be played. We did find out some of these were requested though.

 

Regarding the flowers, I did not receive the flowers that I requested but that was the ONLY thing I didn't provide photos of so it was partially my fault. My bouguet was supposed to be orange gerberas and orange lilies with a little greenery and tied with a turquoise ribbon. I received the orange gerberas but got off-white lillies, and it was tied with a dark blue ribbon. The bouquet was fresh but you only receive them 5 minutes before you walk out the door. This was one of the things I felt wasn't worth mentioning at the time, because what are they going to do 5 minutes before. It just somehow fell through the cracks.

 

Fortunately, the guys got their orange flowers like I requested. An orange lilly for Bennie and Orange Gerbera's for my sons.

 

The other issue with the flowers were the alter flowers. Again, they were fresh and at the time of the ceremony I didn't notice to much that they didn't use the orange gerberas or lillies throughout. I think there was one orange gerbera in each and some off-colored orange carnation type flowers. The off-colored carnations really bother me in the photos with them in them. It just wasn't what I expected. Again, I didn't provide photos.

 

If you are picky about your flowers and colors, be sure and bring photos. If it doesn't matter, they do turn out nicely arranged and put together and fresh.

 

On a good note though, since we were staying for 5 more days after the wedding, we had them bring all the flowers to the room and enjoyed them for the rest of the stay. The color didn't matter in the room because they were beautiful.

 

We will give the flowers a rating of C and the music a rating of D.

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
