Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Not to be a post hog, but the one thing I would recommend to all you girls getting married at MP is meet with your WC as soon as possible, tell her all of your concerns and your requests and then sit back and relax. They know exactly what they're doing. My WC kept coming up with suggestions for things I never thought of. Also, the day of the wedding, while you're getting ready, your WC is whipping your bridal party into shape at the gazebo. She will discuss the processional with you when you meet and she will let everyone in the bridal party know what is going on, so you dont have to worry about it. Just make sure everyone gets to the gazebo early, my wedding was at 4 and bridal party was there at 3:30. Just relax and have fun, these people really know their stuff. Make sure to enjoy your wedding day, dont worry about small things, the day just goes by so fast, keep taking mental pictures of everything for future memories.

Sounds like great advice, Pookie! Thank you!

Just a couple of pictures for you guys!

 

Pookie - you and your husband look wonderful! I hope everything was what you expected plus some.

 

Pookie is right about her comments - everything will turn out perfect. They are a well running machine over there and all the pre-stress is not even worth it.

 

Take care,

Nicole

Nicole,
You look absolutely beautiful!! I love your dress... perfect!!

I just have a question for any of the married women on here or brides to be....

Are any of you putting together an itinerary for your guests?

I made an itinerary for the day of the wedding only and I enclosed a map of the moon palace that I printed off their website. I highlighted where our gazebo is, where the wedding dinner is and where the disco is. (We're hoping to hit the disco after all the festivities).

Any other ideas? Is anyone including anything else?

Thanks so much!

-Melissa

Hi Melissa,

 

What I did was create a calendar for the week with 4 "free" days, plus the wedding day schedule, and then I planned two tours for the group to do as a whole. In addition to that, I had a welcome dinner on the first day all guests arrived. We had 22 of us there and I would do it the same way again. We had a blast! Just enough group days to see everyone and visit and enough free days for everyone to go on their own and do their vacation thing. I heard nothing but positive remarks from everyone! I was worried about a couple of our guests having a great time - and I was even able to please them with the resort. It was great! I honestly do not think anyone can make a bad decision by having their wedding and group of guests coming to Moon Palace.

 

You will have a lot of fun!

 

Nicole

I just received my contract for the room block, im so excited!!!!

 

I had a question for you 09' brides. When she sent me the first set of info, one of the promotions was kids 12 and under stay free, ( with parent in same room). When she sent the contract, it was not on there.

 

So, do kids stay free or not?

 

Thanks!

Thanks Nicole!
Did you have a welcome dinner and use the free dinner for your ceremony night as well? They told me since I am using the free dinner as my "wedding" dinner, I can't do a welcome dinner. I wonder if there is a way for me to put our names in with the wait staff and be able to eat at a restaurant that sits 23 people. I forget which ones hold that many people. I am using the steakhouse as my wedding dinner, so if I was able to do a welcome dinner, I wouldn't want it there.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
And I have to tell you how young you look! You go girl! You are beautiful!!

    • 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.
