Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

hey ladies! I emailed the florida lady and go the "you will have to wait until 60 days" routine. She also said they do the ceremonies in the gazebos only...SO....hm...I don't know what to do.

 

I'm thinking I might just show up, pick whatever flowers they have, and get married wherever they put me.....is that horrible?? I don't want to stress or have to nag the people in Mexico. And I think we're going to do the cocktail hour, and then eat dinner in a restaurant afterwards, as long as we're all seated together. We have a pretty laid back crowd. We're also considering a sunset cruise to Isla Mujeres for the reception depending on the ## of people coming.

 

However, I'm sure I'll change my mind 100000 times before then!

 

I'm so jealous of all you ladies who are getting close to your date! We're ready to go now!

 

Now we're planning the AHR, and its stressful too!!!!!! so much $$$ to dish out.

hello!! We're getting there on 1/13 and staying at the Moon Palace until 1/18, after that we're going to Aventura Spa for the rest of our trip! What about you?

 

I just started "planning" I'm pretty clueless about what I even need to plan! I guess I thought I would show up and it would all be done! Until I got on here....and now I'm learning what I need to do!

Erin, first of all the FL lady is wrong, because 1. My contract states you can get a wedding coordinator 90 days before the wedding NOT 60. 2. When you get your WC in Mexico, you can choose where to have your wedding (If you want to call mexico earlier you can, or you can go through the FL lady's manager, they all have one) 3. You can get married in the beach instead of the gazebo, you just have to pay set-up fees.

Hope this helps!

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!!!!

 

Haha, I remember when you thought my name was Raz :) it's hard to get people names straight until you chat with them a lot :)

 

I was working with Karina in the FL office...BUT, I got an email from her yesterday that she's moving to a different department and from now on Natalie will be my contact in FL. Karina was GREAT! Responded to me within a day or two and did what she could to answer my questions.

 

You can just show up and have a wonderful wedding!!!! But if you are teh slightest bit a control freak, you have to ask and nag. Just keep telling them you need to know for "budgeting reasons". If anything tell them that you ahve a friend who's gotten married at the MP and you know for a FACT that she was at least able to request certain things before the 60 or 90 days. I can tell you that I've already requested where I want my coctail hour, reception and ceremony (it's not 100% guaranteed, but they let Mexico know what I want and I'll have a better chance of getting it).

Hey Katt!
You know what I think I am going to do?
I am going to hire the resort videographer and play the DVD on a TV at my reception back home.
I leave August 7th for Cancun. Our ceremony is on August 11th and we get home on August 14th. My reception back in Buffalo is on August 16th, so we won't have any time to put together a slideshow, but I think we are going to play the DVD on a TV which we'll set up on a table inside our reception hall.
Is your reception in your hometown too or were you referring to your MP reception?

HAPPY PLANNING!

GOOD LUCK TO YOU NICOLE! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR PICS!!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
